A High-Level Overview (Literally) of 30 Unique Real Estate Markets Around the World

10

I don’t know about you, but I’ve found that I tend to get really caught up in the things happening in my real estate market (as if the whole world revolved me).

I’ve gotten used to the buildings, the surroundings, the features and the lay of the land around me – but the truth is, the world is a huge place!

As a land investor – I spend a lot of time with programs like Google Earth, Bing Maps, GIS Mapping Systems and other online resources that allow me to find vitally important information about the properties I invest in.

To most of us, this kind of technology has become commonplace – but if you just stop and think about how freaking incredible this kind of information actually is (and the fact that we can access it from the comfort of home) it’s pretty amazing.

This past week I discovered a website called the Daily Overview, which inspired me to use some of the free online resources I use every day (along with their vast collection of satellite photos) to find some of the most unique-looking real estate markets on earth.

If you need a little break from the norm – I’d like to take you on a quick tour of 30 other real estate markets, most of which will probably look very different from the places where you buy and sell real estate. Check this out!
