Businesses that will do well in today's housing market
The great @reset ”You will be renters and you will like it“- title of recent Bloomberg article
1. Convert office buildings to multi-family housing
Architects are working on this and sharing floor plans on Twitter. One conundrum: the existing bays are too shallow or too deep to let light in to all the interior spaces. So, plans sometimes show an interior bedroom with no direct light except thru an adjacent room.
2. Disrupt ZILLOW & the like
One Real Estate agent who answers my call via Zillow app chatbot said “Zillow gets our information in aggregate form and sells it back to us [in the form of a monthly fee].“
How is Zillow helping you to find your ideal home?
3. House the homeless
It’s not all about making money. It’s about helping others. As a former Dallas coach used to ask as part of her weekly 10 questions: “Is there a creative solution for that?” It seems obvious, but it’s possible to turn your rant into a possible solution.
4. Home Staging
This is now a burgeoning profession and some savvy Interior Designers have created pricey online programs to learn the skills to be one.
