THE HARDCOVER EDITION WAS PUBLISHED AS ZILLOW TALK: THE NEW RULES OF REAL ESTATE. THE NEW TITLE OF THIS BOOK IN OTHER EDITIONS IS ZILLOW TALK: REWRITING THE RULES OF REAL ESTATE. “THE NEW RULES OF REAL ESTATE” IS A REGISTERED TRADEMARK OF FIRST TEAM REAL ESTATE-ORANGE COUNTY.

The New York Times bestseller–now updated with a new chapter!

How do you spot an area poised for gentrification? Is spring or winter the best time to put your house on the market? Will a house on Swamp Road sell for less than one on Gingerbread Lane? The fact is that the rules of real estate have changed drastically over the past five years. To understand real estate in our fast-paced, technology-driven world, we need to toss out all of the outdated truisms and embrace today’s brand new information. But how?

Enter Zillow, the nation’s #1 real estate website and mobile app. Thanks to its treasure trove of proprietary data and army of statisticians and data scientists, led by chief economist Stan Humphries, Zillow has been able to spot the trends and truths of today’s housing market while acknowledging that a home is more than an economic asset. In ZILLOW TALK, Humphries and CEO Spencer Rascoff explain the science behind where and how we live now and reveal practical, data-driven insights about buying, selling, renting and financing real estate. Read this book to find out why:

-It’s better to remodel your bathroom than your kitchen
-Putting the word “cute” in your listing could cost you thousands of dollars
-You shouldn’t buy the worst house in the best neighborhood
-You should never list your house for $444,000
-You shouldn’t list your house for sale before March Madness or after the Masters

Densely packed with entertaining anecdotes and invaluable how-to advice, ZILLOW TALK is poised to be the real estate almanac for the next generation.



“This book is fantastic. I am making every single person I know read it. Drawing upon an enormous database of housing trends and prices, Zillow CEO Spencer Rascoff and Chief Economist Stan Humphries arm would-be home buyers and real estate addicts like me with the information and data they need to understand the new world of real estate. Smart, empowering, surprising, and a little bit addictive, Zillow Talk is a guidebook for any would-be home buyer or seller. It’s also an awful lot of fun.”
-Richard Florida, author of The Rise of the Creative Class, University of Toronto

“I thought I knew it all when it came to making money in real estate, but ZILLOW TALK proved me wrong. This book is a game changer for both buyers and sellers.”
–Barbara Corcoran, Real Estate Mogul and star of ABC’s Shark Tank

“Spencer is one of the sharpest executives I’ve come to know, and fortunately for you, dear reader, he’s in the residential real estate business. This book provides you with the breadth and depth of his knowledge on the subject, wide and deep as it is.”
–Dick Costolo, CEO of Twitter

“ZILLOW TALK is an indispensable playbook for anyone interested in the new rules of 21st century real estate. Written by Spencer and Stan, the creators of the largest online database of housing information in the world, the authors transpose a wealth of statistics that only Zillow could provide, into an easy-to-read, jargon free guide to understanding the ever-evolving real estate market of the new millennium. Whether you’re buying, selling, an industry professional, or you just love real estate, ZILLOW TALK is a must-read.”
–Dottie Herman, CEO of Douglas Elliman

“A fun and engaging must-read for home buyers, sellers, and renters looking to make sense of the ever-changing real estate landscape as they plot their moves.”
–Vera Gibbons, Personal Finance Expert and TV Commentator



Rethinking Real Estate: A Roadmap to Technology’s Impact on the World’s Largest Asset Class

Rethinking Real Estate: A Roadmap to Technology’s Impact on the World’s Largest Asset Class

Technology is revolutionizing the way real estate is designed, operated, and valued. It is democratizing access to capital and information, changing the way tenants use space, and eroding the power of regulation. Billions of dollars are funding these new real estate technologies and operating models. Value is shifting away from the assets themselves toward those who understand the needs of specific end-users and can use technology to deliver comprehensive, on-demand solutions. With all of these developments, there is an urgent need for a resource that helps industry practitioners think differently about their investment, customers, and competition.

Rethinking Real Estate answers that call. It explores the impact of technology on all asset types ― from retail projects, through lodging and residential properties, to office buildings and industrial facilities. Based on the author’s two decades of experience working across four continents alongside the world’s leading real estate investors, as well as hundreds of conversations with start-up founders and venture capitalists, this book provides practitioners with key insights, methodologies, and practical strategies to identify risks, take advantage of emerging opportunities, evaluate new competitors, and transform their organization, project, venture, or career.

Whether you are an investor, developer, operator, broker, lender, facility manager, designer, planner, or technology entrepreneur, this book will help you navigate the exciting period ahead.

– Guy Vardi, Chief Innovation Officer, Silverstein Properties
"You have to read this book. It's the clearest, most comprehensive analysis of the complete overhaul impacting real estate, largely driven by technology."
– Charlie Green, Co-CEO & Co-Founder, The Office Group

Investing in Rental Properties for Beginners: Buy Low, Rent High

Investing in Rental Properties for Beginners: Buy Low, Rent High

Do you have a dream of being a wealthy real estate investor but absolutely don’t want to be a stressed out landlord dealing with an array of bad tenants, repair calls in the middle of the night, and empty units?

What if I told you rental property investing can be easy, stress free, and effortless?

What if you could purchase a rental property for less than the cost of a souped-up Lexus?

What if financial freedom was only 2-5 rental properties away?

Most real estate gurus are teaching people to invest in real estate they can’t afford and telling them to wait to enjoy their profits in 30 years.

This book is about investing in sub $30k properties (under $30,000) and becoming a wealthy real estate investor enjoying the profits now, rather than later…with only 2-5 properties instead of hundreds or overly priced properties.

Building a rental property empire shouldn’t be a tough job, you shouldn’t have to worry about toilet bowl calls in the middle of the night, and you shouldn’t pay more than $40k (on average) for your property.

Buying rentals should be fun, easy, stress free, and affordable for most pocketbooks.

Yes, I said it. AFFORDABLE.

This book on investing in rental properties for beginners is the foundation of what I’ve built 47,000 person social media platform on – helping the average person get involved in rental properties on an average income, and building the cash flow of their dreams with 2-5 properties. That’s it.

This will teach you (the ordinary investor) how to tailor your investment strategy to your pocketbooks (and no one else’s). You don’t need to ask your parents or friends for loans because the best approach to building a rental portfolio is by purchasing units in modest neighborhoods that offer really high rents (i.e. purchase a $44,000 rental that earns $1200 a month in rents).

If being a real estate investor is your dream and being a landlord is not, this is the book for you! The author will personally take you through the steps she’s used on over 560 people to build their dream income and lifestyle.

Here’s some of what you’ll discover in this book:

  • Find what the best market/price for your investment portfolio should be for your budget;
  • Learn how to invest out of state EASILY and EFFORTLESSLY to build your portfolio;
  • How to find low cost properties and analyze them to make sure you are choosing the right property;
  • How NOT to be swindled out of thousands by contractors;
  • The Three KEY FACTORS that determine whether it’s a good deal or not;
  • How vacancy rates is a MADE UP NUMBER and how to professionally analyze any rental market;
  • The difference between a rental property owner versus landlord – and how that impacts your investment strategy;
  • That there is such a thing as a profitable and compassionate real estate investor, and you can do your part to offer long term affordable housing and stop the middle class squeeze;

If you’re ready to turn your dreams of being a real estate investor into a reality, then hit the BUY NOW button!

The Plaza: The Secret Life of America’s Most Famous Hotel

The Plaza: The Secret Life of America’s Most Famous Hotel


Price: $20.99
(as of Jan 19,2020 10:35:45 UTC – Details)


Journalist Julie Satow’s thrilling, unforgettable history of how one illustrious hotel has defined our understanding of money and glamour, from the Gilded Age to the Go-Go Eighties to today’s Billionaire Row.

From the moment in 1907 when New York millionaire Alfred Gwynne Vanderbilt strode through the Plaza Hotel’s revolving doors to become its first guest, to the afternoon in 2007 when a mysterious Russian oligarch paid a record price for the hotel’s largest penthouse, the eighteen-story white marble edifice at the corner of Fifth Avenue and 59th Street has radiated wealth and luxury.

For some, the hotel evokes images of F. Scott Fitzgerald frolicking in the Pulitzer Fountain, or Eloise, the impish young guest who pours water down the mail chute. But the true stories captured in THE PLAZA also include dark, hidden secrets: the cold-blooded murder perpetrated by the construction workers in charge of building the hotel, how Donald J. Trump came to be the only owner to ever bankrupt the Plaza, and the tale of the disgraced Indian tycoon who ran the hotel from a maximum-security prison cell, 7,000 miles away in Delhi.

In this definitive history, award-winning journalist Julie Satow not only pulls back the curtain on Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball and The Beatles’ first stateside visit-she also follows the money trail. THE PLAZA reveals how a handful of rich, dowager widows were the financial lifeline that saved the hotel during the Great Depression, and how, today, foreign money and anonymous shell companies have transformed iconic guest rooms into condominiums that shield ill-gotten gains-hollowing out parts of the hotel as well as the city around it.

THE PLAZA is the account of one vaunted New York City address that has become synonymous with wealth and scandal, opportunity and tragedy. With glamour on the surface and strife behind the scenes, it is the story of how one hotel became a mirror reflecting New York’s place at the center of the country’s cultural narrative for over a century.



“In THE PLAZA, Julie Satow has done a masterful job of creating a gripping narrative that spans just over a century. Her meticulously-researched tale starts with a grisly murder, and thus, in quasi-Shakespearean fashion, the reader lurches between the gritty concerns of the union-workers who built the edifice to the extravagant, excessive realm of the Plaza’s various owners and inhabitants. Satow has written the stories of their entwinement with its marble halls and notorious grand ballroom in vivid, suspenseful detail.”-Vicky Ward, New York Times bestselling author of The Liar’s Ball and Kushner, Inc.
