Real Estate News
As an investor, I'm always interested in real estate news and trends. I enjoy reading about what's happening in other parts of the country and around the globe. I like to find out how other investors overcome challenges and find creative ways to make things happen when times are hard.
For the most part, real estate news hasn't changed much. Investors want to know how to grab the next best deal. Newbies want to learn about investing principles and how to avoid going broke. Realtors want to find out how to sell houses fast even when the odds are stacked against them.
Over time, I've gathered a few of my favorite spots for real estate articles and housing market news. Most have been around for years and have continually evolved as trends change. Each offers something for Newbies to seasoned pros, as well as realtors, buyers, and sellers
