1.  The 10 Hottest Real Estate Markets for Investors in 2016 

“You’ve heard the old real estate adage before: Success is all about “location, location, location.” While there are obviously other factors that come into play for someone trying to build wealth through real estate, location definitely plays a vital role in determining one’s overall return on their investment. If you buy a property in an area where prices are dropping or where cash flow is impossible, good returns will likely be nonexistent.”

2.  Americans own too many vacation homes, and it’s making the ‘new housing crisis’ worse 

“An ongoing housing shortage is lifting prices and rents, and pushing homeownership further out of reach for many Americans. Part of the problem is that too many of the unavailable homes are used only once or twice a year when their owners are on vacation.”

3.  Stubborn Texas homeowners staying put when demand for houses is soaring 

“Since the Great Recession, Americans have been staying in their homes on average about 60 percent longer. Of course, real estate agents don’t make any money unless people buy and sell houses, so the longer tenure of today’s homeowners is on their worry list.”

4.  A Checklist Of Real Estate Photography Essentials (Video Tutorial) 

“One of the most crucial selling points for any real estate agent is a set of high quality, dynamic images that convey as much information to a customer as possible. With demand rising, more and more photographers are trying their hand at photographing the interiors and exteriors of apartments, homes, and condos.”

5. 5 easy ways to make your home look more expensive 

“Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon are big players in the New York City real estate world. As stars of HGTV’s “Selling New York,” the two are known for their innovative marketing tactics and have closed $1.5 billion in residential sales. One of their most valuable tactics for selling property quickly and at its estimated market value is staging: reorganizing and designing rooms within a home to help potential buyers envision what it might look like if they were to move in.”
