This Shape-Shifting, Zero-Energy House Transforms In Tune With The Weather

This Shape-Shifting, Zero-Energy House Transforms In Tune With The Weather | Commercial Real Estate Information | Scoop.it

On a hot day, instead of cranking up the air conditioning, this house transforms: A screen and shell move out to wrap around the entire home, shading everything so it cools down.

"It provides this flexible control over heat gain from sunlight," says architect Todd Fix, who compares the screen and shell to extra layers of clothes you can put on or take off. "So if it's a cold day, the sensor will sense that, and it will close both to keep the heat inside. If you want more light in the space, you can open up the screen or open up the shell."

It's a way to create a passive, zero-energy home without the typical passive house design. "The living area is all glass, from the walls and ceiling to the floors," Fix says. "This opens up a house. Instead of having really thick, insulated walls that are opaque, so you can't see out or see in, it kind of opens you up to the environment."

Augmented Reality in AEC

Augmented Reality in AEC | Commercial Real Estate Information | Scoop.it

While the concept of virtual reality is now very familiar to most technology professionals and its use commonplace in many industries including AEC, there is another concept that is slowly emerging and gaining ground in technology—that of “augmented reality.” In contrast to the fully immersive experience of virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR) “augments” physical reality with additional relevant content instead of replacing it altogether. There is a whole industry of augmented reality technologies that is emerging, with dedicated conferences showcasing the latest developments in AR hardware, software, as well as individual applications. A case in point is the annual Augmented World Expo (AWE) event, which I have attended for two years now to get a better understanding of AR technology and how it is evolving...

All About Investing: Tips, Tricks And Information | Investing Neo

All About Investing: Tips, Tricks And Information | Investing Neo | Commercial Real Estate Information | Scoop.it

 

TIP! Don’t do any improvements that involve digging until you determine whether or not you would be damaging underground lines. It may be illegal to dig at all, and it pays to find this out up front.

 

Many individuals have made impressive sums of money by investing in real estate investing. Without the right learning, you could easily lose all your money. The following information will assist you have a great start in beginning your real estate investing.

 

TIP! You need patience when you begin investing. Understand that real estate deals may take a long time.

 

Do proper research on the market prior to making a real estate investing. Look at multiple properties in the area you choose, and create a spreadsheet with each one. Things to look at include repair budgets, projected rent earnings, and current prices. This will help you figure out which deals are the deals to sort good from bad.

 

TIP! Know the neighborhood before you choose to invest in real estate. Location is essential as it pertains to investing, and you also need to know zoning laws.

 

Once you think you’re going to get into real estate investing, establish an LLC or other such entity. This will help to protect you and the investments you may make. It can also give you tax benefits thanks to your business dealings.

 

TIP! Be a good partner to others in the business! Work together with real estate investors instead of competing. Share resources and clients among yourselves so that all can profit.

 

Your reputation is essential to the success of utmost importance when you venture into real estate investments.This can build up your credibility and will help people to be loyal clients.

 

TIP! Currently foreclosures are flooding the market and they are not all damaged beyond repair. By joining a list that notifies you when foreclosures become available, you get a jump on looking it over and getting a fantastic deal before others realize it is available.

 

There are a couple of things to consider when entering the industrial or commercial real estate market. You want to make sure that you get a fair deal on the land. Do not pay too much for the business either.You need to see good numbers working for your particular situation.

 

TIP! Find out what kind of building is best for you to maintain. Buying the property is only a small part of real estate investing.

 

Be sure to choose regions that have good reputations and where lots of people want to live. This is something that’s important because it will help the value of your purchase. Try looking for properties that can easily be maintained.

 

TIP! Try to avoid fixer-uppers. It may seem cheap, but when you calculate the costs of fixing, you may find you’ll lose money.

 

Never assume that a property’s value is just going to rise every time. This assumption is dangerous in the real estate market and any one piece of property. The safest investment is properties that will generate a cash flow almost immediately. Property value increases will help you invest in future properties.

This will provide you with helpful information for you to start using in your strategy too. You might even have the expert directly.

This can help you get on the right direction. You don’t want to be stuck paying out of pocket for the mortgage because the rent wasn’t set high enough.

 

TIP! You may have to give up a thing or two to make a profit in the beginning. For example, perhaps you really want new cabinetry, but you only have room for paint in the budget.

 

Consider the possible rental values as you project its worth. This can elevate the property value and also give you plenty of money for you. You can still sell the home and make a nice profit.

 

TIP! Think about engaging a trustworthy partner. This reduces your risk.

 

Don’t buy your real estate that is in a less than desirable neighborhood. Know all there is to know about the property before you buy it. Do all of your homework before you make a decision.A good deal on a nice house may mean that it’s in a bad place. It might be damaged and could be hard to sell.

 

TIP! Know how to be a good negotiator if you want to be successful over the long haul in real estate. Being able to negotiate well can save you thousands over the long run.

 

Learn about the neighborhood you decide to invest in investing in. Location is everything in terms of prices and more important to whether it has special attributes or zoning laws you need to know about. Talk to as many neighbors as you can so you can get a better feel of if it will be possible to rent it quickly.

Business Properties

 

TIP! Before investing, understand liquidating guidelines. You need this knowledge to determine how to allocate your investments.

 

Consider a broader horizon and invest in some business properties along with your residential ones when you are considering new buildings to buy. You can make a large amount of money over the long term by investing in business properties. Strip malls and other similar complexes present many opportunities for a single location.

 

TIP! Invest only in a solid company, no matter if the cost is a little higher. Purchasing stocks at a great price may not be profitable if there are troubles within the company.

 

Look at how the economy in the region. High unemployment and lack of good jobs keep property prices. This will have a good return on the bottom line. A developing city will boost property value.

 

TIP! You are ultimately responsible for your financial decisions. Hype, reckless analysis and other factors can make you become too carefree with your investing.

 

Begin your investing with the purchase of a single parcel of property.It is tempting to go all in to increase profits, but it might be a huge mistake if you’re new real estate investor.Begin with one and learn as you want to use. This will benefit you to learn the future.

 

TIP! Plan to fail. At some point, it is likely that you will make a bad investment.

 

There is real money to be made in the world of real estate investing. All you need is plenty of knowledge and luck to succeed. Hopefully you gained some useful information.
