Not sure if anyone subscribes to Jonathan Miller's Housing Note, a blog provided by the Miller Samuel Inc. real estate appraisal corp, but I highly suggest signing up. This week is a particularly good read.
A sample of topics covered:
-Podcasts Related and Not Related to Housing - I present 4 good podcasts this week, one of them on how ramshackle housing creates great art.
-Let’s Revisit Aspirational Housing - More housing drama for the super luxury market lurker.
-Forget the city. The suburbs are doing the bidding (wars). The suburbs are now experiencing what the city used to.
-Zillow Might Be An Online Real Estate Brokerage - Yes, it's possible.
-Appraisals Are Not Wanted by Banks - 90% of mortgage appraisals might be done by a Zestimate or broker price opinion.
-Punctuation and spelling is overrated - Why I live by this.
