Get On Track O

ur New Year’s resolutions have been made … and what’s on the top of most lists? Getting fit, losing weight, and being healthy are the goals of many for 2016. Sound familiar? Although our resolutions often remain the same from year to year, one thing has changed this year: Technology can help us stick to our fitness promises better than ever. From FitBit bands and Apple Watches to calorie-counting and miles-tracking apps on our devices, technology is making it easier to get and stay healthy. All while looking hip and having some fun in the process. Thinking about getting a FitBit? You’ll love how easy it is to use one of these devices to track your steps and gauge your activity level each and every day. You’d be surprised how motivated you can be to get up and get moving when you see how few steps you have taken some days. And did we mention they are super-cute to wear?

A realtor.com

lmost all home buyers start their real estate search online. Consumers don’t have to leave their house while ® searching hundreds of listings in their area – all with multiple photos, detailed property information and satellite maps – providing a plethora of information at their fingertips. But, what real estate websites are the best sources of information and why?

The Apple Watch will also help you stick to your fitness goals. Sitting for almost an hour? The Apple Watch will remind you to stand up and get moving. The watch will also suggest new daily exercise goals and track any movements you make. After all, every step counts toward the recommended 30 minutes of daily exercise. And who doesn’t like to get rewarded with badges and words of encouragement after a long run or bike ride? Of course you don’t need a new device to use technology to your advantage. There are plenty of apps available on your smart phone that can track your fitness, your calorie intake, and even serve as personal fitness trainers. Runkeeper, for example, is an app that helps you set a running goal, creates new and interesting routes, gives audio updates on distance and speed, and provides music to inspire. More interested in tracking what you eat? An app called Lose It! will help you count calories. Just enter in your current weight and your weight goal and the app calculates an appropriate daily calorie intake and the date you will achieve your goal if you stick to your plan. Users can scan bar codes from packaged foods they eat and the app will automatically tell you when to eat less to reach their weight-loss goals. All in all, technology has made it easier and more fun than ever to get healthy in 2016!

Known as the “big three” – Trulia, Zillow and Realtor.com have the most listings and drive more website traffic than any other real estate portals. In 2015 Zillow Group acquired Trulia – so both Zillow and Trulia are owned by the same parent company. According to their website “Zillow Group houses a portfolio of the largest and most vibrant real estate and home-related brands on the web and mobile.” The Realtor.com operating company, Move, Inc. has had a 10 year association with the National Association of Realtors. Move, Inc. was acquired by News Corp. in November, 2014. Shortly after the acquisition, New Corp. began integrating content from The Wall Street Journal and other News Corp. media companies with the Realtor.com site. The website touts “Connecting with the right homes for sale is ideal. That’s why we offer property overviews, community info and the latest real estate statistics to help you make the best decision.” An October, 2015 study by BuildZoom found that Zillow and Trulia together dominate the market in terms of traffic, but Realtor.com recently surpassed Trulia to become the second most popular real estate portal behind first place Zillow. The relationship of Realtor.com with the National Association of Realtors has translated into Realtor.com having more timely, accurate and comprehensive nationwide listings. In fact, Realtor.com receives its data from almost all of the 800+ Multiple Listings Services in the U.S. every 15 minutes. The Zillow Group sites have agreements with just over 300 MLS services. The BuildZoom study cites that Zillow.com has fewer listings than Realtor. com in 42 out of 51 largest metros across the United States. The discrepancy is often quite substantial: in 30 of the 51 cities, Zillow.com has 20 percent fewer listings. But, in a handful of cities – Los Angeles, New York, Phoenix and Detroit – Zillow.com provides more listings than Realtor.com. In all cases, the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) is where the data comes from. If you need professional assistance or just want to schedule a home tour, contact your neighborhood real estate expert.
