Personally interested in the debt markets, long term funding, rates and the ability to make a return on real estate, some interesting articles and sites that I recently came across:
NYT article on how consumers are using data for research on how/where to buy a home.
MarketWatch article showcasing whether its better to buy a new home or existing home stock.
Resource to look up social aspect of neighborhoods (income, demographics, etc).
Bloomberg article on how much to spend as a % of income.
