The Estately application, Tinder of real estate search

 Slide your thumb

to the right or left on your touch screen is an effective and fun way to link two human beings (or remove them), as evidenced by the success of the inevitable Tinder1 application, which offers scrolling on your screen profiles of men and women.2 found in a 10 km radius around you. The application has become a must have for young singles. So that applications incorporating this principle have multiplied, just like Jobr The Tinder for professionals and for finding employment3. This ingenious system

now can also make people happy for those seeking a property … It is the ambition of Estately4 application, which took over the fundamentals of Tinder: a series of pictures of various real estate succeed before you, and you have two options: either you save a property that you like, or you put it in the trash. It's as simple as that. And that's not all: when you save a property, the application sends you notifications about any changes in its status. Price, day visits …

"With Tinder, we realized that the" swipping "was easy to use and intuitive payday loans guaranteed no fax. In real estate, it can quickly purify a list extension! "

Galen Ward, CEO of Estately application.

The application is not limited to offer photos of the property. As Tinder on several characteristics accompany each profile so you do not select solely on visual criteria: its price, its area, number of rooms, any dependencies … With this system, you can quickly identify what you want in the middle of a forest property that does not interest you systematically, as explained in specialized site Techcrunch 5 Galen Ward, CEO Estately6 application. "With Tinder, we realized that the" swipping "was easy to use and intuitive. In real estate, it can quickly purify a list extension "

While competing applications – or as Redfin7 Zillow8 – already offering the functionality to remove and hide properties that do not interest us, they do not allow this act of "swipping" that users love so much. "This small gesture is ideal for first time buyers who have thirty years!" Says Galen Ward. A very trend that has probably not finished inspire system.

Economic policy: Holland Valls and cling to their course

Tag: international, news, people, special, traveladmin @ 12:28 am

 

Why change a policy that does not work? Growth may well be zero, François Hollande 1s'en lies in the roadmap that has set December 31, 2013 and he subsequently clarified on January 14. At the 70th anniversary of the landing in Provence2 Friday it has raised the wrong digit INSEE indirectly, a sentence at the conclusion of his speech at the memorial of Mount Faron on "France, fifth economic power world and that means in its reforms, remain at that level. "

All indicators are nevertheless a potential worsening of the situation. GDP stagnated in the second quarter, as it had done in premier.3 Industrial production fell 0.5% between March and June. Business investment fell 0.8%. The trade deficit is still in the red and unemployment continues to rise and reaches 10.1% of the workforce. In early summer, Manuel Valls 4puis Hollande had also anticipated this deterioration, the head of state even evoking, August 4, "a real risk of deflation." The never-seen with the president, who had not abandoned his optimism for his now famous "recovery, it is" of 14 July 2013 …….

But … this brutal return to reality will apparently not impact the program returned from the executive. This is the conclusion of the workshop that were formed Holland and Valls midday Friday at Fort Brégançon5. For a little less than three hours, lunch melon-rib-including fruits, they sought how to maintain their course "with insight and fighting," said a presidential adviser. Sylvie Hubac, Chief of Staff at the Elysee, Gilles Gateau, Deputy Chief of Staff at Matignon and social advisor, and Gaspard Gantzer, head of communication of the Head of State, joined them for coffee. Upon his return

Hyeres, Manuel Valls said he was not surprised by the growth figures. "I myself had said on August 1 that we were going to have a difficult re-entry, he has said. I want to tell the truth to the French, I'm not here to hide the reality. "The Prime Minister said that" far too low growth "called further reform" as well as initiatives for investment in European ". New lunch

The government has yet to plead his case once at the summit to install the new européenne6 Commission, on August 30. The Minister of Economy, Michel Sapin7, set the tone in an article published by The Mondedaté August 15 where he tries to show "why we must refocus European economic policies." "France will not reach its goal this year in terms of its fiscal deficit despite total control of our spending," he laments. He believes that GDP growth "should be of the order of 0.5%" in 2014, instead of 1% under the amended Finance Act and adds: "There is no reason at present to predict 2015 is much higher than 1% growth. "

only source of consolation, the executive seems to preclude any further increase the tax burden," as was the case in the years 2010 to 2013, with the now known in terms of household purchasing and reduced investment capacity of enterprises' power effects, writes Michel Sapin. The Minister of Economy fails to mention that the levies have increased at a rapid pace since 2012 and have not dropped since. He does not say, either, what 'alternative measures' will restore two devices censored by the Council constitutionnel8: relief of employee contributions and lower taxes on jobs at home. A counselor

Holland confirms that the topic was discussed over lunch at Brégançon. They also talked about the "tax act" waited for the start but, according to the president's entourage, "has not yet been finally adjudicated." They returned on sites already programmed, including the revival of learning and the construction of housing. And, of course, discussed the situation in Iraq and Ukraine.

The tax and benefit package should be ready no later than the submission of the draft budget 2015 Cabinet in late September but the executive n did not intend to stay silent until then. Cabinet re-entry will be next Wednesday and the day before, Francois Hollande, and Manuel Valls have lunch together once again to study the timing of announcements and develop a communication strategy to show that, in adversity, they are more united than ever.

Bundesbank calls for a 3% increase in German wages

Tag: economic, life, news, publications, technologyadmin @ 2:04 am

 

From our correspondent in Berlin,

Wages may increase Germany.1. It is the recommendation of the head of the Bundesbank, Jens Weidmann. In an interview with Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung published 2 Wednesday, he suggests a 3% increase in wages, not for the sake of social redistribution, but by simple economic fact. "The labor market in Germany is in a better position there a few years ago," says the representative of the monetary and fiscal orthodoxy. "In a number of sectors and regions, we are almost at full employment and the needs of labor is increasing. It is in the nature of things, and this is to be welcomed, as real wages rose more strongly than when the German economy was in a worse situation ".  

The level of 3% increase is not set at random: it comes to adding a level of CPI inflation 2% and increased productivity by 1%. At each branch to negotiate based on its characteristics, he also added. "We do not immisçons us in wage negotiations," warns Jens Weidmann.

While Germany has introduced a minimum wage and a generalized growth of 1.9% is expected this year, the head of the However Bundesbank would contain wage demands. "Wage agreements that go well beyond an increase indexed to productivity would hurt growth and employment in Germany and would be a disservice to the euro area," he says. Having advocated the serious economic or austerity in Europe, Germany set a bad example.

German unions have already announced that they would negotiate wages to rise. In public services, this is an increase of 3.5% which is required for example. The IG Metall has in turn already obtained an increase of 2.3% on 1 July for employees Metallurgy and 1.7% in May 2015, 4%. Employers

worries about his side effects of these increases on the competitiveness of the German economy. The minimum wage, which has just been voted cause loss of jobs, do we also accused or price increases. Hairdressers, for example, have already revised their prices to rise.

Seen the rest of Europe, the increase in purchasing power and consumption in Germany is good news. France.3 put on this particular recovery in its main economic partner to improve the economic situation of its businesses. Prime Minister Manuel Valls 4devrait address the issue Thursday with Vice Chancellor and Economy Minister, Sigmar Gabriel, he receives Matignon. The head of government also intends to plead the cause of France to Germany for more flexibility and flexibility in reducing the French deficit.

Nuclear: ASN wants new powers

Tag: economics, economy, online, resources, top newsadmin @ 8:28 am

 Despite

nuclear situation in France considered "satisfactory overall in 2013," Pierre-Franck Chevet1, president of the Nuclear Safety Authority says negative points.

Two difficulties are attributable to Areva2. The first is "related to the storage of waste on the former site of La Hague packaged in concrete silos." This is not the most technical tip: these compounds should be stored in "stable containers," says Pierre-Franck Chevet. These waste produced by the unit reprocessing spent fuel UP2-400 arrested for eleven years, have been the subject of recommendations in 2011. But the cost of operations deemed "priority" by ASN3, is € 2.5 billion at the expense of Areva. Faced with this amount, it is understandable that the discussions drag on, for an operation that will spread until 2030

. In addition, site fuel fabrication FBFC Areva in Romans-sur-Isère, was placed "under enhanced vigilance." After handling errors on small bottles of fissile material in 2012, "repeated problems and recurring security" have been identified. Areva proposed April 10 ASN to launch "an action plan reinforced."

In addition, while the EDF's nuclear fleet is subject to a satisfecit global4 three plants (Civaux, Chinon and Bugey) are less well noted. After a detailed inspection in October 2013, ASN inspectors noted that Civaux was "withdrawal on compliance and implementation of basic safety principles" and noted "significant differences in respect of environmental regulations. "

These examples illustrate that the ASN requests the State the right to impose on operators' new sanctions, "" daily fines "c that is to say fines. So far, the authority has "the right to close a nuclear plant in case of danger or transmit a report violations to justice," says Pierre-Franck Chevet, who regrets not having sanction intermediate between these two extremes. It hopes that this law is integrated bill on energy transition and suggests the reform of the financing of the ASN, using "direct contribution of large farmers." This increase expected budget, € 50 million per year, together with the IRSN (Institute for Radiological Protection and Nuclear Safety), could help the ASN to fill expanding roles, such as radiology equipment control . Harmonize rules

In the longer term, the ASN must review the plan called "refit" of EDF's nuclear fleet, estimated at 55 billion euros for the extension of the life of plants. To allow reactors to operate beyond 41 to 45 years of service, Pierre-Franck Chevet expects "an appointment particularly complex. For reactors will implement safety features like those of the EPR. " ASN will deliver its final opinion on the matter in 2018

. In the event of a major nuclear accident in Europe, which could affect several countries, ASN would harmonize rules for the protection of populations. Despite the Chernobyl disaster in 1986, levels of intervention are specific to each country. The first discharge thresholds are for example two times lower in France than in Germany. And everyone would have the right to stable iodine tablets in France in a 100 km radius around the accident site, while in addition the Rhine distribution only concern first the age of 18 and speakers. women

Greece: the third bailout plan rejected after the European

Tag: Uncategorized, economy, online, opinions, publicationsadmin @ 10:28 pm

 

From our correspondent in Brussels

Cold shower for Samaras government. Greece1 straightens her accounts faster than expected, but it will have to wait to collect real encouragement: the capitals of the euro decided to postpone until the end of the summer any discussion of a third bailout.

This is the President of the Eurogroup itself cut short the hopes of Athens, at the beginning of a closed session of finance ministers: "If the program is followed, there will grant installments paid by May (as expected), assured Jeroen Dijsselbloem2 his arrival in Brussels. There will be no emergency about a new aid program for Greece and we will discuss the future in August. "

With the European elections in sight, Antonis Samaras3 had to dangle his constituents additional support countries of the euro and thus counter the explosive growth of anti-austerity party SYRIZA. It's the same election date today dictates a wait of its partners: Angela Merkel4 in particular does not want to feed the critics of the AFD, the new anti-euro party on the invoice that Greece impose the German taxpayer.

Unemployment remains attached to almost 30%

On this point, the Chancellor would have imposed its views to the Minister of Finance Wolfgang Schäuble5 who wanted a gesture of solidarity with Athens, if one believes the weekly Der Spiegel. The first concerned the rise of anti-European vote in Germany on the evening of May 25 The second is concerned with a thrust extremes that would torpedo, Greece, the first success after four years of effort.

Under the tutelage of the EU-ECB-IMF troika, Athens found a "primary" budget surplus (excluding debt service) of € 1.5 billion in 2013 from the Prime Minister Samaras. This is twice the desired result. After five years of recession, Greece is also expected to grow by 0.6% this year according to the EU. But he still has to drive reforms and unemployment remains attached to almost 30%.

The surplus, if the European agency Eurostat confirmed in April, the condition laid down in late 2012 to consider a third European bailout: long-term loans, longer maturities of debt that weighs 175% of GDP and any interest rate relief. It is this perspective that is now pushed under the weight of the electoral calendar.

Real estate: prices are overvalued by 15% in France

Tag: events, features, finance, publications, resourcesadmin @ 1:52 pm

 

Even if prices fall immobilier1 since 2012, they are still overvalued by 15%, according to a study by Credit Agricole. "The prices have so far fallen slightly (-2.1% in 2012 and -2.5% in 2013) and 155% cumulative since 1998 was only partially offset by lower credit rates , lengthening the loan term and increases in income, "explains Olivier Eluère, an economist at Credit Agricole and author of the study. The market is however assagi2 slightly compared to 2008, when prices were overvalued by 25% then, by Crédit Agricole. The credit rate is higher then borrow more weighed on household income.

This year, the market should still idle. Crédit Agricole expects a decline of 4% of transactions in the former and stability in the new. "The negative factors are present, but they should not increase. The economy is recovering very slowly, "said Olivier Eluère. The new tax regime for capital gains including an exceptional reduction of 25% for one year, could also "a bit thin market", with a increase in new home sales and rental investment.

The mortgage rates will gradually rise

But rates immobiliers3 credits should just go back to little in the wake of the 10-year OAT could reach 3% by year end. If this scenario is confirmed, the lower prices of existing homes is expected to reach 4% (yoy). "This would represent a cumulative decline of 7% to 8% between late 2011 and late 2014," says the study.

"The evolution of credit rates will be critical habitat for the property market in 2014," Olivier Eluère advance. "If bond yields went up significantly and if this movement was then reflected in lending rates, the market correction could be significant," he says.

Anyway, as in 2013, secondo buyers, ie households who buy and sell their primary residence, the majority remain in the property market this year. "The weight of" first-time buyers "remain low," he says.

While the December figures to be published this Monday evening, members of the government are not in tune. If some anticipate the failure of the inversion curve unemployment1 and cautious or pessimistic, others defend at all costs the government's record.

Asked Sunday on reversing the trend in unemployment, Michel Sapin2 preferred evoke "a situation of stabilization." Anticipating accusations coaster, the Minister of Employment endeavored to recall the efforts of the government to a crisis that Francis Hollande3 admitted underestimated.

"We are moving towards a situation is a situation stabilization is already considerable," said the Minister of Employment, invited the Grand Rendez-vous Europe 1 / i / TV World. "Everyone will then ramble: 'yes, you are not spent in the least something (…). But 2013 was a year of battle fought effectively against rising unemployment. "

The minister put forward a new fois4 the decline recorded during the year 2013 – "more than 30,000 unemployed additional months" in the first quarter against "third quarter 5500" – and the decline in youth unemployment "for eight months. " He also defended the effectiveness of its policy to support use with supported employment. "The engine of employment policy gave all he could give results," he has said. "We plugged the gaps in 2012 and 2013 and the boat is restarted the second half of 2013. Today the challenge is that this boat, which moves too slowly, moving faster, "added the Minister online payday loans. "The economy must take over from the creation of jobs," he continued, referring to the pact proposed by François Hollande responsabilité5 business that provides relief of charges in exchange for 6 embauches7.

More direct counterpart of Agriculture Stéphane Le Foll8 acknowledged Sunday evening BFMTV "that figure near, the year 2013, we will not reverse the trend of unemployment." However, he felt the need to continue the effort to lower unemployment. Pierre Moscovici9 is not of the same opinion, saying that "the year 2013 there was a sharp deceleration and reversal of the trend in unemployment has been initiated." The Minister of Economy said on France Info that there is "now improved employment situation, a growth restarts but more must be done." This confusion in government communications is reminiscent who had surrounded the announcement of a tax reduction from 201510.

In the aftermath, Jean-Claude Mailly11 blasted "missed a bet" and lashed out at the government hesitant communication. "It must be clearly stated. A sudden reversal is a sudden, it is stabilizing, suddenly, it is a slower rise, we will end up having the reverse inversion, that is to say the increase. "Secretary General ouvrière12 Force on France 5 found that" while we do not find an economic growth rate of around 1.6 minimum point, we may have an increase in unemployment. "
