"Technology is valuable in a world with 

diminishing resources in terms of 

lowering waste and facilitating mass 

production, but we can never lose sight of 

the power of the touch of human hands." - 

Issey Miyake, fashion designer who recently passed away after a legendary career. He is the one who made the Steve Jobs' mock turtleneck famous ....and also was known for opening stores in less gentrified locations around the world that over time became places like.....Tribeca (opened 2001!)

Consumer confidence in the housing market dropped to the lowest level since 2011, as both prospective buyers and sellers have become more pessimistic. Just 17% of those surveyed in July said now is a good time to buy a home, down from 20% in June, according to a monthly survey by Fannie Mae. Even more telling, however, is that the share of sellers who think it’s a good time to list their homes dropped to 67% in July from 76% two months prior.  (CNBC)
OPINION: Sentiment often is a key driver of markets. Current sentiment is probably more driven by headlines of averages and salacious price drops (on extremely overpriced property) than hard facts, a perfect opportunity for agents to demonstrate their real value by providing curated, specific data-driven insights and intelligence.
