  • "Manhattan real estate is the most expensive in the US per square foot with some properties topping $10,000: Study" - CNBC.com"Move over San Francisco — the Big Apple tops Silicon Valley as most expensive place to live in the United States, a new study shows. Per square foot, real estate in Manhattan is the most expensive in the United States, with the average property in the borough eclipsing all other locals. Based on that metric, some city properties even top $10,000, according to a report published Thursday by real estate and data analytics firm NeighborhoodX..."
  • "Jacksonville industrial development would span 3 million square feet" - TheRealDeal.com"A Kansas City, Missouri-based company plans to buy 156 acres in Jacksonville to build three million square feet of industrial space. VanTrust Real Estate LLC expects to break ground next month and finish construction of the first building in September 2019. The company expects to build three million square feet in three to six buildings at a Jacksonville industrial park..."
  • "$1bn for empty space: the saga of the world's most valuable real estate" - TheGuardian.com"A billion dollars is a steep price to pay for a whole lot of nothing – even if the nothing in question happens to be a prime piece of open land with commanding views over the mansion-studded hills of Bel-Air and Los Angeles. Still, a billion dollars is what the owners of the 157 acres perched between Benedict and Franklin canyons say they want, and they are not in the mood for discounts. At least in theory, the listing – known variously as the Vineyard or the Mountain – is an invitation to the ultimate gazillionaire to build his or her palace of dreams above a city famously built on them..."
  • "Las Vegas median home prices ‘slowing down’ this summer" - ReviewJournal.com"After a stretch of roaring price hikes, Las Vegas’ housing market seems to be tapping the brakes. Price growth is cooling down, sales have slowed, and the industry’s biggest trade group in town is dialing back expectations that prices will reach their pre-recession peak this year. By all indications, Las Vegas is still a seller’s market and not undergoing a wrenching change, and prices continue to rise faster than the national average. But collectively, the shifts could give buyers some relief. Southern Nevada home prices have been rising at one of the fastest clips in the country this year amid low availability and strong demand. Things have been so heated that Fitch Ratings in June deemed Las Vegas the most overvalued market in the nation..."

offrs.com Announces Winners of the Inman Connect San Francisco (ICSF18) Sweepstakes

In April, Inman launched a Sweepstakes that would award two random entrants a complimentary All Access Pass to the Inman Connect San Francisco 2018 conference in July. The two lucky winners have been announced and provided insight on what they expect to learn at this year's conference...

 

Last month, Inman & offrs.com announced an opportunity for two lucky readers to attend this year's Inman Connect held in San Fransisco, July 17th-20th. The winners were drawn and offered a complimentary All Access Pass to the event. Today, offrs announced the winners of the Sweepstakes...

 

  • Patrick Ryan, Sr. Vice President & Managing Broker at Related Realty in Chicago, IL
  • Guy Parker, REALTOR® & GREEN Designee at Atlanta Intown Real Estate Services in Atlanta, GA

 

We were able to reach out to each regarding their interest in the Inman Connect event in San Francisco this year. For Patrick, technology seems to play a large role in his firm's approach to the RE space and their commitment to the in-person and professional relationships they develop. He says that his Chicago boutique brokerage focuses on applying data technology in relationship-building, and went on to say that they "utilize the most up-to-date technology as one should and have a distinct advantage with the amount of urban demographic information [that they are provided through partners]."

 

Asked which areas of education, networking (or similar interest) they might be focused on for the event, Patrick, who has attended the Inman Connect in New York in the past (and who spoke as a panelist there on how "Social Good can increase your bottom line") discussed his interest in "networking with colleagues in other parts of the country, best practices, and technology..." (particularly in the area of virtual assistants).

 

Guy, who hasn't yet attended an Inman Connect event himself (but whose colleagues do regularly attend Inman Connect NY) says that he remains focused on "lead generation technology," and hopes to discover what's around the bend as well as to establish a better referral network. Asked what advice he could give to others attending the ICSF18 conference (as well as those who won't be able to make it), he offers up "Brace technology! Don't be afraid of change! Make it work for you!"

 

With the general discussion in our industry surrounding RE tech, we were curious about which areas of technology in particular that these attendees of ICSF18 feel might affect their business the most. For Patrick, all technologies have their place, but "automatic follow up technology with a personal touch" is best. As both point out, we too are fans of the school of thought that a balanced approach through the use of technology and relationship-building (in what is ultimately a relationship-centric business) is key to the sort of longevity that produces practical results.

 

"We all can do a better job of giving back and making sure our efforts are improving the communities we do business in... by improving our professionalism and customer service." Says Patrick in this regard. We agree wholeheartedly.

 

Congratulations to these winners of the Inman Connect ICSF18 Sweepstakes - we look forward to seeing you there!
