REAL-ESTATE-NOW

This week, our content covers two areas: the current state of the real estate industry and a glimpse into a future where current “smart” technologies are fully integrated into society’s daily life. Don’t forget, there’s something for everyone to read, so make sure to share what articles resonated with you the most over at the Champions School of Real Estate Facebook and Twitter pages!

 

1. U.S. Home Prices Rise 5.8 percent in November, Hit All-Time Highs in 4 Cities, The Associated Press

“Several metro areas have fully rebounded from the downturn. Four metro areas — Dallas, Denver, San Francisco and Portland Oregon — have either matched or eclipsed their all-time highs.”

 

2. These 8 Hidden Underground Cities Are Groundbreaking (Literally), ZipTopia

“From subterranean parks and malls to inverted skyscrapers and tunnel-bound farms, these hidden underground cities and urban projects are going to have us doing some serious spelunking in the future.”

 

3. Smart Cities Start with Smart Buildings, Harvard Business Review

“Connected Cities exists to break down cost and complexity barriers, so cities know how to invest in efficiency and sustainability.”

 

4. No parking? Self-driving cars could have a huge effect on our cities, Clive Thompson, Grist.org

“Since there are only 253 million passenger cars and light trucks in the country, that means we have roughly four times more parking spaces than vehicles. If you totaled up all the area devoted to parking, it’d be roughly 6,500 square miles, bigger than Connecticut.”

 

5. The 20 Hottest U.S. Real Estate Markets in January 2016, Cicely Wedgeworth, Realtor.com

“Our traffic, searches and listing views exhibited the January ‘pop’ we saw last year, which made for a strong spring. In addition, a large number of prospective buyers have been telling us since the second half of 2015 that they plan to purchase in the spring and summer of 2016.”
