If you’re looking for some crazy real estate trivia, you’ve come to the right place.

In this blog post, I’m going to share a GIANT COLLECTION of real estate facts I compiled this past year for a few various guest articles I wrote for Inman and The Lighter Side of Real Estate.

These interesting tidbits were a lot of fun to put together, and they ended up being quite the hit on social media – so in case you missed these original posts when they first hit the scene, hopefully, you’ll get a kick out of them right here, right now. Enjoy!
