Make your home more appealing to young buyers - Millennials comprise the largest group of homebuyers, according to the National Association of REALTORS®, so homebuilders are increasingly including the attributes the millennial generation covets when designing new homes. If you’re considering putting your home one the market, you may want to do some renovation work to attract younger homebuyers. Some of the things millennials look for in a home are a separate laundry room, new kitchen appliances, energy efficiency upgrades, “smart home” technology, home office, and low-maintenance deck.

Single Family Homes in the South Bay under $600k  - No kidding.

In recovering housing market, starter homes remain elusive - Low interest rates and an improving job market have created a wave of prospective first-time home buyers, but they're being stymied by a dearth of available starter homes. Nationwide, the inventory of homes costing $250,000 or less fell more than 12 percent between June 2015 and June 2016, according to the National Association of Realtors.


Homes in wealthier neighborhoods tend to have more bugs - “It’s vegetation at a neighborhood scale that’s really having this big effect,” says Leong. In affluent areas, people might be more likely to plant trees or shrubs, and not just in their own yards but in public spaces beyond. Alternatively, richer people might be more likely to move into greener places. Either way, the bountiful vegetation then fosters a thriving community of arthropods that can then find their way into homes.


What the Google/LinkedIn land swap means to real estate - People who currently own residential real estate will benefit from this swap and see greater returns on their investments due to the increase in workers and consequent demand for housing. The flip side is that increased demand without the construction of new homes will increase the cost of housing.
