People Plus Property Equals Interesting Real Estate News

Hi Folks,
   Monday again! That was fast !

   A few interesting and cool things going on in the world of Real Estate, and I figured that you might find these items interesting, too.

   A "Real Estate Cafe"...yes, you heard it right ! "The Maggio Shields Real Estate Cafe in Rehoboth Beach is a fusion restaurant of a different kind; it melds real estate with breakfast and lunch", writes Diana Dwyer, in a story on Delmarvanow.com. The restaurant/office hybrid appeals to hungry people - hungry for food or property. Managing chef Aric Roork commented that the saying around The Cafe is: "Have your cake and condo, too!", The Cafe serves soups, salads, sandwiches and pastries. This concept has been catching on in other countries, as well, so they may be onto something here!

   A "Real Estate Bus Tour"...you cannot make this stuff up! The national bus tour called "Home Ownership Matters", writes Claire Simms in an article on firstcoastnews.com, aims to "educate consumers about the real estate market and changes that could be coming to the industry", and further, to "raise awareness" of possible down-payment requirement changes and about the home buying process.

   Own a Home in China? You are en eligible bachelor! "China has a strange condition these days in which a man must buy a house before a woman will agree to marry him", says a recent article on TaiwanNews.com. What is the result of this? Due to the "gap between rich and poor", the story says, "many young people are unable to afford a house and thus not able to get married", which is likely to continue in the future. Apparently, Chinese officials are "scrambling to find a way around this impasse".

   It's a big world out there with a lot of property. There's a whole world of interesting news when people collide with property ! What do you think?

Rent To Own In Hong Kong?

Morning Folks,

   I'd like to wish everyone a Happy Half Day. "Half Day", you ask? Yes, since I admit that I am a "hater of Summer", from June 1 - the end of August is 92 days. Half way is July 16th (Saturday)...thus, "Happy Half Day".

   In previous discussions, we spoke about the Global spread of "Rent to Own" as am option to buy or sell a home. Rent to Own is gaining further popularity in the USA, Canada, Australia, the Philippines, and multiple different countries. As we spoke about in our post titled, "It's Still Rent to Own to Me", we touched on the different names that are used when discussing Rent to Own (Lease Option, Option to Buy, etc), but they are all roughly equivalent to the same arrangement.

   Now, let's add Hong Kong to the mix. In a recent story by Bonnie Chen in The Standard in Hong Kong ("Greenbelt conversion on cards in drive to boost flats"), Chen discusses a recent initiative to develop more residential space across the country. Part of this initiative involves a list of potential sites that needs to be submitted, "to the chief executive's office by September", "according to a source."

   The interesting fact here, is that the Chief Executive Donald Tsang Yam-kuen, in a speech last year, announced the "My Home Purchase Plan" (also known as rent-to-own), with the, "first 5,000 units to be completed by the Housing Society in 2013. ". This is just one piece of Rent to Own in that part of the world. China is an incredibly huge market, and one that we look forward to becoming an integral part of in the upcoming months.

   Regarding Rent to Own in China and the China Housing Market, we will be taking a closer look at these in a Blog Post in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on our Blog.

What are your thoughts on China and Rent to Own?
Happy Half Day !!
