A new study by the European Journal of Epidemiology shows that residents who live above the 8th floor are 22% less likely to die early. The research shows that two major illnesses, lung disease and heart disease are lowered once people live above the eighth floor.
The only rate of death that increased as the floor number increased is, of course, suicide. Those living on the first floor were 60% less likely to committ suicide by jumping. We're a little surprised that it's only 60%...

Are the bidding wars back? You bet they are. We asked four of our Highrises.com partners about the trends in real estate.
Ian Bell from Seattle said a property listed on a Thursday for $780k, and by Monday there were 10 offers, come even offering to waive inspections! The property ultimately sold for $930k to a cash buyer. This prompted Ian to wonder, “How do regular folks compete?”
Danielle Contreras, our Highrises.com partner from San Jose, CA is seeing a similar trend in her real estate market. A property recently listed for $668k and quickly received 11 offers. The price of the house jumped to well over $700k with one buyer even agreeing to waive all contingencies.

Worth Magazine has looked at all the luxury high-rise condo buildings throughout the world and compiled what they think are the ten best. They're pretty vague about the criteria they used, only saying that these are "Then of the world's coolest places to live". We would add a few to the list if we could, like Sierra Towers in LA or Museum Tower in Dallas.
1. One57 in NYC. 90 floors but only 92 units!
2. One Hyde Park in London.
3. Opus in Hong Kong. A Frank Gehry production. 12 units, 12 floors.
4. Absolute Towers in Toronto. The first tower sold out faster than most concerts... they were gone in 24 hours.
5. HSB Turning Torso in Copenhagen. Pictured to the right. Powered entirely by locally produced renewable…

We have great news we have to share! The Happiest Job in America in 2013 is Real Estate.
Forbes just listed the top 10 happiest (and respectively happiest) jobs in America. The #1 happiest job was a real estate agent. Careerbliss surveyed 65,000 people to come to this blissful conclusion. The logic behind this is real estate agents are rewarded for their success. They can have a flexible schedule and increase their income with hard work. The careers with less rewards and more office politics scored the lowest on the happy rating including associate attorney, customer service associate and sadly RN’s and teachers.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects an 11% increase in real estate jobs from 2010-2020. The majority (57%) of real estate agents…

The Feburary 2013 report from the US Census revealed some interesting news for multi family units. New Privately-Owned Housing Units Authorized in Permit-Issuing Places increased 54.9% from Feburary 2012 to Feburary 2013.
In February 2013, 285,000 buildings with five or more units began construction for units in buildings with five units or more, up from 240,000 in February 2012. As the economy recovers, we expect more completed projects as many we on hold or canceled from 2008-2012.
