The Capitalization Rate or "Cap Rate" is a quick-and-dirty way to check the financial outlook of a real-estate investment property. You probably wouldn't use it on your primary residence — there are much better ways of making that type of decision.

In fact, cap rate is a relatively volatile statistic when looking at any single-family or single-unit property. So when it does come in handy? Cap rate is often a useful tool when choosing a multi-unit property like a duplex, multifamily building, or a condo development which are all investments of similar risk levels.

Of course, you don't have to be a billion-dollar real estate investor to get a lot of useful, actionable information out of these rates.

I felt inspired to write this piece this week after learning how few colleagues intend to hold open houses for their listings and reading about how charities are overloaded with well-intentioned volunteers who want to work with the less fortunate and count their blessings--only this time of year. I relate this to the perpetual busyness everyone complains about when not focusing on their home search. Historically, the holidays have proven an excellent time for buyers, from reduced competition to sellers wanting to unload for tax purposes. Read on for all 5 reasons to purchase now--with the bonus 6th reason that I’m here to help!

What Is Pickleball?

It's a little bit tennis, a little bit badminton and a little bit ping-pong. Despite all that, pickleball is completely unique. It's a racquet sport, and the pickleball court is a tennis-size court with a slightly modified net and game lines. Racquets are solid, usually made out of wood or composite materials. The ball is a specialized whiffle style. The rules of the sport are relatively simple. There's a no-volley zone around the net where you can't hit the ball before it bounces. You play up to 11 points with a minimum lead of 2 for the win, and you can only score when serving. You can play singles or doubles.

If you have heard of pickleball, you may think of it as simply a casual, easy-going
