Weekend Reading and the Weekend Poll
Why should people invest in residential real estate now? For the rent, of course. In this Saturday's Real Estate Section, Alejandro Lazo has a good story on how people who want to buy, fix and rent are reclaiming the word "investor" from the flippers who prevailed during the boom.
What makes a neighborhood neighborly? Also on Saturday, Ann Cameron Siegal reviews some of the the things (hint: they're verbs, not nouns) that do the job. That's a topic I find fascinating. I know in our neighborhood an annual progressive dinner party at Christmastime boosts neighborliness. And the parents who see off the school bus each morning often linger for a chat after the kids are well on their way. But we could do more, especially with an eye toward bringing younger and older residents closer together. A Memorial Day block party may be just the thing!
Don't forget to join Real Estate Editor Maryann Haggerty and me for today's Real Estate Live chat at 1 p.m. You can always post a comment or question early, and doing so actually increases the odds that we'll be able to include your points within the hour-long chat.
