1.  Modern Miracles: 7 Incredible New Contemporary-Design Homes

“A truly “modern” home is a tough concept to nail down. After all, Mid-Century Modern defines a wildly influential style of architecture that first hit its stride in the Eisenhower era. And hey, every home built right now is modern—if we’re going strictly by Merriam-Webster. However, some homes built in 2016 are modern in the architectural sense of the word.”

2.  Millennials Need a New Housing Bubble

“To understand the slow-motion trends in single-family housing, start by looking at the oil market: It took years of oil priced around $100 a barrel to spur the investments that drove higher production, leading to the current supply-driven glut and prices closer to $50 a barrel. The levers of supply and demand worked, but they worked slowly — as is happening in the housing market.”

3.   Can There Be Real Estate on the Moon?

“The idea of arguing over real estate on the moon may seem silly—like a con man trying to sell a tourist the Brooklyn Bridge. But in a new paper, co-author Martin Elvis, an astrophysicist at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, makes the case for society to start thinking carefully about lunar real estate before a crisis is thrust on us. “

4.  Fancy life in an eco-village? Welcome to the hi-tech off-grid communities

“Since revealing plans for their modern eco-village at the Venice Biennale at the end of May, ReGen Villages and architectural partners EFFEKT say they have seen a “firestorm” of viral activity and 6,500 interested emails. “What they are saying is: ‘We want in desperately: this is our dream,’” says California-based Ehrlich.”

5. First Yo! Home scheme to compact houses into small apartments 

“Intuitive” apartments with moving surfaces and foldaway furniture will feature in the first residential development from the team behind Yo! Sushi and Yotel, which is currently awaiting planning permission.”

6. Real estate CEO ironically overpays for his own $20M home

“The next time you’re surfing popular real estate listings site Zillow for a new home and stumble across a “Zestimate” — the company’s estimate for a property’s value — you might want to take it with a grain of salt.”
