  • "Santa Monica Neighborhood Among Most Expensive In LA" - Patch.com"Real estate in California is expensive, but in Los Angeles County it can seem exorbitant – like that record-breaking $1 billion property that hit the market in Beverly Hills. Yup, that's billion with a 'B.' But what about average home prices countywide? PropertyShark, a website that provides in-depth real estate data, analyzed neighborhoods in Los Angeles and found the median home prices in Quarter 3 of 2018. Surprisingly, they found that L.A. area's top 20 most expensive neighborhoods are overall twice as pricey as NYC's 20 most expensive..."
  • "C.A.R. releases its 2019 California Housing Market Forecast" - PRNewsWire.com"A combination of high home prices and eroding affordability is expected to cut into housing demand and contribute to a weaker housing market in 2019, and 2018 home sales will register lower for the first time in four years, according to a housing and economic forecast released today by the CALIFORNIA ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS®' (C.A.R.).

  • "Who is taking a stand on affordable housing in Pittsburgh?" - NextPittsburgh.com"Since the turn of the century, Pittsburgh has emerged as a story of reinvention and rebirth in the face of a changing economy. While the gains from our emergence as a hub of research and technology are real and hard-won, they don’t tell the whole story. Since the year 2000, housing — perhaps the most basic human right — has become significantly less affordable in Pittsburgh. According to a study commissioned by the city’s Affordable Housing Task Force, the average cost of a rental home has increased by $116 monthly, far exceeding the rate of inflation, while the median income of renters has remained stagnant at around $26,000 per year..."
  • "Requested amendment to downtown project could be 'deal-breaking' for Tulsa Development Authority" - TulsaWorld"Urban renewal and city officials have concerns over a developer’s request to remove the retail portion of a proposed downtown project.

offrs Review: You excellent, little creature, you…

Okay, so how often do you get high-fives or a pat on the back? It's a cut-throat business, for certain, but we're all in it together. Consider this the love you so deserve. Let's review...

As seen on AgentsOnline.net...

 

We’re all about excellence (and we know you are too - you’re reading a microblog about it). But to be clear… we’re human. We’re not perfect, but we learn and grow with each and every task we take on. This is excellence. Somewhere along the lines (we’re looking at you here “motivational” posters from the 70’s and 80’s), excellence was hijacked to become some state of business perfection. Like it was actually a mountain, literally a mountain, we could climb and sit atop as king or queen of excellence - who closes on a snow-capped mountain in a suit and tie?

But, as we all know deep down, excellence is an approach. It’s a process of getting up off the floor with every “We’re exploring FSBO…” we’re hit with. Forget grace, rejection hurts. But you’ve got to press on with each blow, continue to learn, grow and become better at your day. If you’re a parent, you’ve just wasted about 2 minutes of your time (sorry, you already know this). But it’s sometimes helpful to hear a friendly fellow in the field remind you what you already know… that you’re an excellent creature and you can do this. Go humble, but go bold. Prance onward…!
