1.  North America’s first fully prefabricated passive houses could revolutionize the housing market

“A brilliant new partnership announced today could revolutionize the way Americans build their homes. Ecocor has teamed up with sustainability-minded design firm Richard Pedranti Architect (RPA) to design and build North America’s most energy-efficient prefab Passive Houses starting with eleven model home designs.”

2.  Ultra-rich still hungry for high-end real estate investments: Citi

“The centi-millionaires and billionaires who are clients of Citigroup Inc’s (C.N) private bank still want to invest in the fanciest real estate in North America, despite recent signs that segments of the high-end market have begun to cool.”

3.   What Living in a Tiny Home is Really Like

“There’s a growing hype surrounding tiny homes and micro-apartments, especially in places with skyrocketing rents like San Francisco, Seattle, and New York, but what’s it really like to live in one?”

4.  8 Reasons To Buy A 1000-Square-Foot House

“When you think of a small space, you might think of the 500-square-foot tiny homes that have become a popular option for those looking to really downsize. But there are benefits to living in a smaller home — and you don’t have to take your square footage to extremes to enjoy them.”

5. The Psychology of Buying and Selling a House

“It’s a fact of life: Homes come with far more emotional weight than any other investment we make. A home is a refuge from the world, a place to raise a family and, for some people, an investment they hope will bring them a good chunk of money down the road. We fall in love with houses in a way that we never fall in love with a portfolio of stocks and bonds.”

6. 5 things real estate agents wish buyers wouldn’t do

Your agent is supposed to help you find a property you can afford and work with the seller to negotiate the details of the purchase. But problems could arise if you’re on different wavelengths. If you want everything to run smoothly, here are five bad habits to steer clear of.”
