A House for the Birds: The Best Places to Find Real Estate with Turkeys
November 24, 2014

Missouri has the most for-sale home listings that make specific mention of “turkey” in the description. Alaska features the lowest number of listings calling out turkeys. Do holiday airport departure delays ruffle your feathers? Is the thought of frantically cleaning before the in-laws arrive putting you in a fowl mood? Do you think hunting for […]

Large Multi-Family Buildings: Bright, Shiny, New…and Affordable?
November 24, 2014

New things tend to be more expensive than old things—new cars, new computers, new spouses and new homes (of course, after a certain age, things become antiques and their value starts to rise again).

We expect new home sales to fall as much as 2.5 percent, to about 455,000 units (SAAR) in October from 467,000 in September. Strong new home sales in October, slightly stronger income growth and momentum from lower interest rates likely balanced headwinds from higher vacancies and rising prices. Zillow expects Wednesday’s October new home sales […]

November 20, 2014

As the recovery has progressed, buyers have slowly been gaining more leverage in the market as the balance of power slowly swings away from sellers. Much of this is driven by the fact that there are simply more homes for sale: In October, overall U.S. inventory was up 15.8 percent year-over-year. More homes on the […]
