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.

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..."

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 Review: How to outlast your RE competition (and survive a bear)

offrs Review: How to outlast your RE competition (and survive a bear)

When it comes to real estate farm strategies for 2018, 2019 (and let's face it... any year), it ultimately comes down to who can survive the long haul. Let's review what this means for you...

As seen on BusinessAdviceForum.com...

 

Spoiler: RUNNNNN!!!! If you read that in a bad Arnold Schwarzenegger voice, then kudos to you, ma’am/sir! So what does this have to do with best practices in real estate? Quite a bit, actually. Let us make the case here (albeit dramatically)… real estate is largely about outlasting your competition. Afterall, if you were the last agent on the planet, and you were the only surviving soul that could help a homebuyer or homeseller client fulfill their impending life transaction… you’d fair pretty well. The problem is that the industry keeps pulling in fresh talent (more peeps) and this is watering down the opportunities. Fair enough. But, the flip side of this is the churn.

Ahhh, yes. The trapdoor that few who venture our path see as they prance doe-eyed through their RE courses. Like any bear attack (oh yeah, there are bears in this best practice tip), you really only need to outlast the sprint next to any other poor sap in line sight of impending doom. Note: you really shouldn’t run from bears… they’re like super fast. So, if you don’t have a head-on survival strategy to outwit a big-spender in town, then your best option may simply be to outlast them. Because this business is a bear and those that burn out fast will naturally thin out (that kinda got a little dark there, but you get the gist). Keep in the race, buckaroo.

Of course, if you can get your hands on lead generation for real estate, then you're going to fare much better out there in the wild. Get your hands on it today and don't just survive... thrive!
