Some homeowners end up in the renting business by inheriting a house, thus being thrown into the market. On the other hand, there’s an increasing number of people that are interested in joining the market because they’ve heard that they can make a fortune.

Even people who have their own place often struggle to decorate it to their liking, and we all know how difficult it is to find a good apartment for rent.

Amid the gleaming steel-and-glass towers springing up in every large town around the world, a trend is bubbling away that is nodding towards old school cool. In Nashville, US, a 70s chic commercial building recently sold for triple its value; across the water in Adelaide, Australia, a retro home sold for $230,000 above its value and local market price.
