Virtual-Reality Tours Come to Commercial Real Estate
Wall Street Journal
Though the commercial-real-estate sector has a reputation for being slow to embrace new technology, several brokers and developers are hot on virtual-reality tours—to boost leasing and sales, especially to technology firms and tech-driven media and ...

seeing a lot of people frustrated with brokers and finding apartments. im an ex real estate broker who can explain the ins and outs of the real estate biz and can help you not get screwed by a broker or landlords/mgmt!

Fri, 21 Jun 2013 17:15:19 -0700

i first posted a big, long wordy post about how brokers often can screw you over when it comes to real estate in manhattan. however, i know many of you have questions and would like advice/are curious about finding apartments and how it works. (please note, i only worked in manhattan, so generally i can give advice, but mostly about manhattan and brooklyn, as i dont know as much about bronx, queens, and staten island.)

finding real estate is hard, especially in nyc and even moreso during summer. i used to be a successful real estate broker who quit because of pressure by my bosses to get more deals and placed money over customers. real estate is a big business - after all, EVERYONE needs a place to live. however, that also means that people will get screwed over, and you cant screw people over when it comes to the place where they will live and sign a lease locking them in to living at the same place, sometimes for up to two or even sometimes 3 years. seeing people get screwed over angers me a lot, so i want to help out and maybe shed some light about how things go down in the real estate world. (text post, so i dont get karma or whatever. i really dont care about that, i just want to help out.)

Any other Canadian Redditors disgusted by the overpriced state of Canadian Real Estate?

Thu, 14 Jul 2011 08:44:19 -0700

Can I just say it?!

Who the hell is buying these things at the current prices?! Also, dear sellers, i'm sorry, your slum is not worth that much, don't be insulted by my much lower offer.

In my area there are so many properties that are extremely over priced that have been sitting for 4-6 months. When will people get the hint that Canadian Real Estate is priced too damn high!

I am Joshua Hunt. My company, TRELORA, has created the first home search site that lets buyers see the commissions being offered to their real estate agents. Now, the local MLS is trying to stop us. -- Ask Me Anything!

Wed, 11 Feb 2015 13:32:41 -0800

My company, TRELORA, is a full-service, commission-free real estate brokerage.

Our mission is to make the home buying and selling process more transparent by allowing buyers and sellers to see exactly how much money is being allocated to agent commissions on each listing. We launched www.search.trelora.com this week and, within hours, received a cease and desist letter from the local MLS, REColorado. They are stating that the commission being offered by the seller to pay the buyer’s agent is “content developed by others” and therefore should not be visible to the buyer. We believe, because a buyer’s check at the closing table actually pays for everything (including commissions), that all buyers deserve to know where their money is really going.

I would love to answer your questions about transparency in real estate transactions, broker commissions, or a commission-free brokerage model.

I’ll begin answering questions at 7 PM Eastern, and continue for about an hour!

EDIT: Thanks for all your questions, this has been a lot of fun! If you have other questions, we are easy to find and you can call the office at any time!

Android v. iOS screen real estate

Sat, 15 Nov 2014 12:49:29 -0800

When I upgraded from my 2013 Moto X to the 2014, I was disappointed that the larger screen didn't buy me any more screen real estate. Now that lollipop is out and the UI has gotten even bigger, it's worse. I did some comparisons with my girlfriends iPhone 6 this morning, and it hurts even more that her 4.7 inch screen shows significantly more information than my 5.2. Might look into rooting and changing my DPI settings down the road, but just wanted to throw up some comparisons. Anyone else bummed out by this? Any solutions?

Horrendous interview with a real estate agent. I'm still in shock. Venting...

Tue, 03 Dec 2013 14:55:48 -0800

This nutcase wants to pay $50 flat for 50-100 images for each property... uploaded within 24 hours... in an area where the homes go for Millions of dollars. She also wants all of the photos to be uploaded to a website she wants me to build for her, needs all of her social media to be updated with each property, and wants me to do some videography for the properties as well. Then she went on about how many international Asian clients she has... and apparently according to her, "Asians love blondes and the color blue. So always wear blue when you are in front of the clients, since you are a brunette." After that she made a comment about how unprofessional my bangs are. My bangs aren't edgy or unprofessional, they're more Zooey Deschanel. I'm so disgusted!! Are all real estate agents insane like this?? This is the first agent I've met with. Previously I've worked with clients who were privately selling their homes... wth?

Anyone reached FI through buy and hold real estate investing?

Tue, 13 Jan 2015 07:20:29 -0800

Hi,

I know it's not the preferred route to FI around these parts, but I'm really interested to here stories of anyone reaching FI through buy and hold real estate investing. How long did it take, how many units, how did you grow your portfolio etc.

I'm interested in going this route myself so I guess I'm just looking for some motivation / reassurance that it can be done.

Thanks!

The Nexus 4 actually has more screen real estate than the Nexus 5

Fri, 01 Nov 2013 02:31:30 -0700

Guys, look at the first 2 minutes of this video:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6QHkv-bSlds

Like all 5 inch 1080p devices, the Nexus 5 reports to the Android OS to be a 480PPI device while it is truly 440PPI. This actually means that the Android OS thinks these displays are physically smaller than they are, and UI elements on 5 inch phones are needlessly large (by UI guideline standards).

As a consequence, the actual screen real-estate available to apps (expressed in density independent pixels) is 640x360 compared to the Nexus 4's 640x 384. So the Nexus 4 has just as much vertical real-estate while having more horizontal real estate.

tl;dr: Because of the way Android works, the Nexus 4 can fit more stuff on its screen at once compared to all 5inch phones out there.

FAA has banned the use of drones for real estate photography

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 09:35:50 -0800

The ban is still in effect... and it might be for another 2 years. Currently the FAA has banned the use of drones for commercial use, which includes the use of drones to take aerial photos and videos of real estate for marketing and advertising of a listing.
