  REALTOR Magazine: How to Avoid Real Estate Burnout  
 

Feel like you're on a hamster wheel? Real estate shouldn't be a 24-hour job. Restore some sanity with these productivity tips.


Research shows working long hours backfires for most people, and for companies it doesn't seem to result in more output. In a study of consultants, Erin Reid, a former professor at Boston University's Questrom School of Business, found that managers couldn't tell the difference between people who actually put in 80 hours a week and those who just pretended to.

  Housingwire: Americans' confidence in housing reaching a plateau  
 

However, many still optimistic over economy's direction

Americans are growing less confident in housing, and experts wonder if, after years of climbing, their confidence is hitting a plateau. Fannie Mae's Home Purchase Sentiment Index dropped 1.6 points in June to 90.7, just after reaching new survey highs in both April and May.


Four of the six HPSI components decreased in June, but the net share of respondents who said now is a good time to buy a home remained unchanged at 28%, and those who said now is a good time to sell a home increased one percentage point to 47%. This represents a new survey high for the third straight month.

The four components that decreased included Americans expressing a decreased sense of job security. Those who said they are not concerned about losing their job fell two percentage points in June to 76%, while the share reporting their income is significantly higher than it was 12 months ago decreased two percentage points to 19%.
