Once a month we take a look back at the national real estate news scene and pick out some articles we think our readers would enjoy. Know we are not wannabe aggregators but perhaps surfing real estate geeks looking for items of interest. Read along and tell us what you think.
Want to know where real estate buyers are looking? I am not a big “list” person. You know the top ten this and the top ten that. These lists seem to easily manipulated or flawed by data slights of hand. Nonetheless I am intrigued by this article showing the most searched real estate markets in the United States from CNBC http://www.cnbc.com/id/102292914#.
What did we learn in 2014? Relator.com takes a look back at the year and makes some predictions for 2015 http://www.realtor.com/news/real-estate-trends-defined-2014/.
For all you technology and gadget nerds you are going to like this article in Inman news. Look at some of the so called must have technologies realtors are supposed to be seeking these days at http://www.inman.com/2014/12/24/7-gadgets-every-agents-been-eyeing-for-the-holidays/
Is the national market slowing? We have two recent news clips showing some national real estate market softening. This article http://www.cnbc.com/id/102291880 talks about a slow down in new home sales. This article speaks to a slow down in existing home sales http://www.cnbc.com/id/102288272. We are not seeing a slow down in Naples but the national news is a little troubling.
