Hey Everyone and welcome to the 88th Edition of the Carnival of Real Estate! This week, we had 23 submissions and I’m going to share with you 14 of the ones I think are most interesting.
- Will’s Why I Still Love Real Estate Investing: Being A Landlord on the Your Finish Rich Plan blog, talks about the pros, cons, drawbacks, and discusses many tips for the wanna-be landlord. The post is quite thorough, and a definite read for any potential landlord!
- Neelakantha’s 101 Tips & Resources for the Upside-Down Homeowner is a comprehensive list of tips and resources for homeowners who are upside-down on their homes. (International Listings Blog)
- Cliff Jacobson shares his list of the Top Ten Foreclosure Myths at the WebHomeUSABlog. While the list is a good one, it appears as though the list concentrates on REOs (bank owned properties), and not those properties that are in foreclosure, but haven’t gone to auction yet.
- Dan Melson at Searchlight Crusade writes a timely post, What $5 (and Higher) Gas Means to Suburban and Exurban Real Estate. This article is not only thorough, but pretty much nails it.
- Is there really gold in building green? by Patrick Duffy (The Housing Chronicles Blog) is a nice piece of commentary that examines the current status and importance of Green homebuilding.
- Roberta Murphy from the San Diego Real Estate Blog writes an interesting post called A San Diego Short Sale Solution that details how people in San Diego are focused on foreclosures instead of short sales, and comes up with a conclusion why this is the case. Her argument works for the entire country, not just San Diego, I believe.
- Is there such thing as a ‘green’ bubble? by Nathan Blair
- Observations of the Mortgage Market by Nigel Swaby
- Apartment Owners’ Liabilities Under Review by Matt DiChiara
- Second Real Estate Financial Model – First Development by TerryT2
- How to Maintain Your Lawn on a Budget by Debbie Dragon
- The Real Estate Market – When Will We See The Turn? by Joe Manausa
Chart from The Graph That Shows Why New Home Sales Are At 17-Year Lows by Dan Green of The Mortgage Reports Blog
We hope you enjoyed all of the great articles in the carnival, and I look forward to hosting again some time soon (probably won’t happen for a LONG TIME, though).
