Broker BlogWrap: Blogs and Buccaneers

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 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]
