Real Estate Innovation


I just read about a really neat home design that’s great at demonstrating two things I take very seriously: tornado safety and real estate savvy.

First thing’s first: tornado safety. This home is built into the side of a hill, Hobbit style. It’s nearly tornado proof and the Roofing Advisors was in charged of the design of the modern roof. It’ll stand up to incredible winds and the people inside won’t even feel it. When you have a leak or need a whole roof replacement, J Hamer roofers can help you find accredited roofing contractors near you.

Secondly: real estate savvy. A home like this has a major selling point even if it seems like a crazy idea. Crazy ideas are worth something if you just know how to market them. Besides for other benefits like lower maintenance and utility costs, the appeal of this place goes beyond anything practical.

So what can we learn from a story like this? That no matter how outlandish the idea, someone is willing to go for it. And if you find an investment that seems right, go for it. You never know when it will pay off.

Trend 1: 3D printed buildings

The 3D printing of buildings is the biggest and most promising real estate trend of them all. It makes it possible to build an entire house – without excavators or cranes, and with lower material and labour costs than ever before. Several houses have already been printed in Shanghai, China, and an entire office building was 3D printed in Dubai. However, these current 3D printed buildings are still far from having the quality of conventional buildings. Thus, it will still take some time before this trend will have a major impact on the local building industry, especially in the light of Germany having many stringent building regulations and standards.

Trend 2: Virtual reality

Another technology in the real estate sector we should keep a close eye on is the so-called virtual reality method. This allows future home-owners to view the design and ambience of their new home in explicit detail using 3D virtual reality glasses. This technology could become a decisive advantage for forward-thinking real estate agents, especially when marketing new property developments. These brand new 3D glasses could also be helpful for prospects who are not able to physically view the property themselves. The person wearing the glasses can move around freely in and interact with the virtual environment, and even “feel” the incidence of light or size of the room.
