Pinterest. You may have heard about this new site that seemingly everyone is addicted to. The premise is simple. Any time you find an inspirational photo on the Internet you save it as a sort of mood board. Then, your friends can see what images you’ve saved and you can all inspire each other. And much like Google, you can search for things too. Sounds kind of fun and useful, right?

Being in real estate, I respond to inquiries about moving to New Orleans almost every day. Some are here presently and somewhat homeless while some won’t be here till Fall. The average inquiry looks like someone new to the area, and excitedly shopping for May or June, because of a new job in queue. The hardest to manage are the parental inquiries seeking accommodations for their barely out of the house undergrad child and their three “closest” friends. Sigh. Really? Sounds like a thankless journey, that one. Do you know how hard it is to get a 19-year-old and – or even 24-year-old – and their friends du jour to show up to an appointment at the same time? Much less get them to agree on anything. Who gets the biggest room? Who gets which bathroom and who will they share it with? It’s messy and overly time-consuming at best.
