Broker BlogWrap is our tribute to the brokersphere. 'Cause we love you that much— we really do. Posts of note may be passed along accordingly.
1) The internet: not as useful as we all thought...at least when it comes to real estate. 42% of people say that online information played no role whatsoever in their real estate decisions. Even worse? Only 4% post comments on blogs about their home and nabe! Come on, society! We know you can do better than that! [Sellsius]
2) Pirate Economics: Surprisingly similar to today's housing market (as long as you don't mind stretching an analogy to its limits). Only with, you know, more hooks and peg legs and stuff. [Matrix]
3) There's always a loophole! Looking to buy? If a TIC is the only affordable option, but you're secretly lusting after a condo, why not find a 2 unit and avoid that pesky conversion lottery altogether. It's like cheating. Only not. And look— two-unit buildings aren't doing so well in this market, anyway. Your move. [Redfin]
