35 Real Estate Facts That Will Blow Your Freaking Mind


I’m working on something big right now.

Over the past few weeks, I’ve been diving into the initial phases of what I hope will be the next giant leap forward for the REtipster Blog.

This little “Classified Project” has been consuming a ton of my time and as a result, you’re probably going to see fewer blog posts than normal in the month of May 2015. But don’t worry, I’m still here! I’m just plugging away at something behind the scenes – and I should have more details for you in the next month or two.

In the meantime, I don’t want to leave you all hanging (I know there are at least a couple of folks who check this blog every week for updates), so to keep both of you entertained, I wanted to share a GIANT COLLECTION of 35 real estate facts that I compiled this past year for a few various guest posts I did for Inman and The Lighter Side of Real Estate.

These interesting little tidbits were a lot of fun to put together, and they ended up being quite the hit on social media – so in case you missed these original posts when they first hit the scene, hopefully you’ll get a kick out of them right here, right now. Enjoy!
