Who knew the world of cubic yardage held so much surprise and wonder? Douglas Elliman broker Leonard Steinberg (co-author of the Luxury Letter) emails, "We introduced the concept of Cubic footage last year. We call it the CUBICFACTOR. Our personalized website actually has a CUBICFACTOR calculator. Some jaded brokers were skeptical of this: We firmly believe this is an important factor in valuations. And as we specialize in Lofts, it is even more important." Makes sense to us. By the way, we're never making another real estate joke ever, ever again.
