After a break from real estate writing, I remind myself that this work offers the constant pleasure of beautiful things, particularly useful things, like apartments, or houses, or furniture. It is inspiring to see the occasional wonderful house or apartment–there are really very few of them, and it is a pleasure to help find one for others.
Everyone is an audience for housing, and everybody wants something special, each according to his/her or their own sensibilities. I is interesting to think about what makes a place unique or ordinary, what preferences determine its value, and what beauty the market may overlook.
