On the last day of 2015 I was invited to guest host for the 6am hour on Bloomberg TV’s Surveillance with Mike McKee, Vonnie Quinn & Erik Schatzker. I was paired with Michael Holland, Chairman at Holland & Co. I’ve never met him before but really enjoyed his insights on the stock market.

Listing Your Home? How to Avoid Seller's Remorse

Posted from: http://www.zillow.com/blog/avoiding-sellers-remorse-123175/

In many real estate markets around the country, inventory is low and sellers are in the driver’s seat again.

In some cases, homes are selling for more than asking price. After years of a sluggish buyers’ market, many real estate agents are trying to get would-be sellers to list their homes now.

It seems like a great time to sell. But how can you know for sure if it’s a great time for you to sell?

Would You Rather: Rent in the City or the Suburbs?

Posted from: http://www.zillow.com/blog/rent-in-city-or-suburbs-197435/

Imagine your dream rental home. Are you transported to a roomy 4-bedroom home with a big backyard nestled on a quiet street? Or are you in a sleek townhouse right in the thick of a big city’s hustle and bustle?
