Real estate transactions used to function at a plodding pace, hampered by procedural inefficiencies and slowed by manual processes. Anyone who bought their property before 2010 can attest to this fact; a homebuyer had to skim the Yellow Pages for a realtor, visit several homes, hold several (inessential) meetings, and wait with bated breath for documents and assessments to roll in slowly.
And if a consumer wanted actionable data to aid them in the buying/selling process, they were most likely out of luck – as real estate micro-trends, up-to-the-minute median prices, and other indispensable data simply weren’t available.

real estate: Optimize Your Rental Property to Attract Quality Tenants - 09/13/22 07:47 AM

Landlords like yourself are increasingly wary of renting out properties to less-than-ideal tenants. Such tenants can cause significant monetary losses as well as anxiety and stress. The wrong renter may stop paying rent, damage your property, or use it for undesirable or illegal activity. 
You must optimize your property to attract quality tenants that pay top rental rates. Remember, with renters; the first impression is often the last impression. Unlike homebuyers, tenants aren't looking at your property's potential — they're looking at what state your property is currently in. 
Try some of these steps to optimize your rental property … (0 comments)

real estate: Understanding the 3 Types of Big Data - 09/08/22 01:26 PM

If you’ve recently scoured the pages of a tech magazine or combed through a business blog, chances are you’ve come across the term “big data.”
No, it doesn’t refer to the consolidated market forces behind data (the way some pundits use “big pharma” or “big ag” to drum up tension). Instead, big data is far more literal: it simply refers to data sets too complex, quick and vast for everyday computing software to store, manage or interpret.
These unmanageable data sets are invaluable to companies – provided they know how to use them. When a company mines big data with … (0 comments)

It’s often said that the kitchen sells a home. A well-functioning, stylish kitchen makes an excellent hub for a family and makes life easier. For that reason, a beautiful, well-thought-out kitchen is high on the list for most people looking to buy a new home.
That makes kitchen renovations high on the list for homeowners planning to sell their homes in the not-too-distant future. If you’re making upgrades, it makes sense to make them in the room where they will be most appreciated. Kitchen upgrades generally have a high return on investment. However, it’s important to remember that … (1 comments)
