    A Fine Line Between Reflections and Refractions A Line Between Love, Light & Lore Dot.Connector.Podcast.by.BMC We had an amazing show tonight. We've been streaming all week long so I kept my beautiful face out of the lime light for the night and took it easy. I hope you all don't mind. I'm having a hell of a time finding a steady co-host that will actually show up every night and has internet. No offense Keenan. :-) Is it my breath? Why can't I get anyone to stream with me? What the hell is going on here? Why are American's so scared of hard work? I just don't get it. I'm really super excited to announce that we got our first real sponsor on the show. They're actually paying. This is a marketing company that is employing our services to help them sell NFTs. I'm sure you all know my feelings on NFTs but I guess I have to keep my mouth shut until I cash the check or whatever. We shall see. Now this is going to be a big step up in another direction I've never taken before. This is the first lasso put around the neck of ol' Booges. This is an exciting day I'm really looking forward to sharing with the world. All I know is there will be no more asking for donations --that is all of the sudden beneath me. You fuckers never gave them to me anyways. Cheap Bastards. :-)

    When God called Dr. Leanna Cinquanta to serve as a missionary, she was a young woman fresh out of college. Then God specifically called her to a part of South Asia known as “the graveyard of missionaries.” He led her down a different path from most foreign gospel workers at the time; Leanna lived in a village drinking dirty water, sleeping on a grass mat, subsisting on lentils and rice and contracting the same diseases the local people endure. As she lived through the hardships of village life, she was able to introduce people to a God greater and more powerful than the millions of gods in their Hindu faith: Jesus Christ. Leanna prayed for the sick and the demon possessed in His name, and she saw people healed and giving glory to the one true God. Listen as Leanna shares about how Jesus is reaching people in South Asia with displays of His power, and how Christians persevere in spite of persecution and hardship. She'll also advise American believers how to reach out to those we know with the gospel, including Hindus and Muslims, and equip you and your church to pray for more than a billion people who live in South Asia.

    Victor Davis Hanson Article. FBI- The American Stasi. Dennis Prager Podcasts Stasi  Aug 12 2022   Half the country has lost faith in the FBI as a non-political institution. It now acts like the enforcement arm of the Democratic Party. This is a terrible development and very scary… Thanks for listening to the Daily Dennis Prager Podcast.

VICTOR DAVIS HANSON AUGUST 10, 2022 The FBI is dissolving before our eyes into a rogue security service akin to those in Eastern Europe during the Cold War. Take the FBI's deliberately asymmetrical application of the law. This week the bureau surprise-raided the home of former President Donald Trump — an historical first. A massive phalanx of FBI agents swooped into the Trump residence while he was not home, to confiscate his personal property, safe, and records. All of this was over an archival dispute of presidential papers common to many former presidents. Agents swarmed the entire house, including the wardrobe closet of the former first lady. Note we are less than 90 days out from a midterm election, and this was not just a raid, but a political act. The Democratic Party is anticipated to suffer historical losses. Trump was on the verge of announcing his 2024 presidential candidacy. In many polls, he remains the Republican front-runner for the nomination — and well ahead of incumbent President Joe Biden in a putative 2024 rematch. In 2016 then FBI Director James Comey announced that candidate Hillary Clinton was guilty of destroying subpoenaed emails — a likely felony pertaining to her tenure as secretary of state. Yet he all but pledged that she would not be prosecuted given her status as a presidential candidate. As far as targeting presidential candidates, Trump was impeached in 2020 ostensibly for delaying military aid to Ukraine by asking Ukrainian officials to investigate more fully the clearly corrupt Biden family — given Joe Biden at the time was a likely possible presidential opponent in 2020. The FBI has devolved into a personal retrieval service for the incorrigible Biden family. It suppressed, for political purposes, information surrounding Hunter Biden's missing laptop on the eve of the 2020 election. Previously, the FBI never pursued Hunter's fraudulently registered firearm, his mysterious foreign income, his felonious crack cocaine use, or his regular employment of foreign prostitutes. Yet in a pre-dawn raid just before the 2020 election, the FBI targeted the home of journalist James O'Keefe on grounds that someone had passed to him the lost and lurid diary of Ashley Biden, Biden's wayward daughter. At various times, in Stasi-style the FBI has publicly shackled Trump economic advisor Peter Navarro, swarmed the office of Trump's legal counsel Rudy Giuliani, and sent a SWAT team to surround the house of Trump ally Roger Stone. Meanwhile, terrorists and cartels walk with impunity across an open border. FBI Director Christopher Wray last week cut short his evasive testimony before Congress. He claimed he had to leave for a critical appointment — only to use his FBI Gulfstream luxury jet to fly to his favorite vacation spot in the Adirondacks. Wray took over from disgraced interim FBI Director Andrew McCabe. The latter admitted lying repeatedly to federal investigators and signed off on a fraudulent FBI FISA application. He faced zero legal consequences. McCabe, remember, was also the point man in the softball Hillary Clinton email investigation — while his wife was a political candidate and recipient of thousands of dollars from a political action committee with close ties to the Clinton family. McCabe took over from disgraced FBI Director James Comey. On 245 occasions, Comey claimed under oath before the House Intelligence Committee that he had no memory or knowledge of key questions concerning his tenure. With impunity, he leaked confidential FBI memos to the media. Comey took over from Director Robert Mueller. Implausibly, Mueller swore under oath that he had no knowledge, either of the Steele dossier or of Fusion GPS, the firm that commissioned Christopher Steele to compile the dossier. But those were the very twin catalysts that had prompted his entire special investigation into the Russian collusion hoax. FBI legal counsel Kevin Clinesmith was convicted of a felony for altering an FBI warrant request to spy on an innocent Carter Page. The FBI, by Comey's own public boasts, bragged how it caught National Security Advisor designate General Michael Flynn in its Crossfire Hurricane Russian collusion hoax. As special counsel, Mueller then fired two of his top investigators — Lisa Page and Peter Strzok — for improper personal and professional behavior. He then staggered their releases to mask their collaborative wrongdoing. Mueller's team deleted critical cell phone evidence under subpoena that might well have revealed systemic FBI-related bias. The FBI interferes with and warps national elections. It hires complete frauds as informants who are far worse than its targets. It humiliates or exempts government and elected officials based on their politics. It violates the civil liberties of individual American citizens. The FBI's highest officials now routinely mislead Congress. They have erased or altered court and subpoenaed evidence. They illegally leak confidential material to the media. And they have lied under oath to federal investigators. The agency has become dangerous to Americans and an existential threat to their democracy and rule of law. The FBI should be dispersing its investigatory responsibilities to other government investigative agencies that have not yet lost the public's trust. ——- ABOUT THE WRITER ——– (Victor Davis Hanson is a distinguished fellow of the Center for American Greatness.

It's a must-read that every person, religious and non-religious, should buy and peruse every night before bed. It'll make you think harder, pray more ardently, and understand your civilization better." — Ben Shapiro, host of "The Ben Shapiro Show" "Dennis Prager's commentary on Exodus will rank among the greatest modern Torah commentaries. That is how important I think it is. And I am clearly not alone... It might well be on its way to becoming the most widely read Torah commentary of our time—and by non-Jews as well as by Jews." — Rabbi Joseph Telushkin, bestselling author of Jewish Literacy Why do so many people think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is outdated? Why do our friends and neighbors – and sometimes we ourselves – dismiss the Bible as irrelevant, irrational, immoral, or all of these things? This explanation of the Book of Exodus, the second book of the Bible, will demonstrate that the Bible is not only powerfully relevant to today's issues, but completely consistent with rational thought. Do you think the Bible permitted the trans-Atlantic slave trade? You won't after reading this book. Do you struggle to love your parents? If you do, you need this book. Do you doubt the existence of God because belief in God is “irrational?” This book will give you reason after reason to rethink your doubts. The title of this commentary is, “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. As Prager says, “If something I write does not make rational sense, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible to people of every faith, and no faith. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world and to your life. His goal: to change your mind – and then change your life.   Highly Recommended by ACU. Purchase his book at- https://www.amazon.com/Rational-Bible-Exodus-Dennis-Prager/dp/1621577724   The Rational Bible: Genesis by Dennis Prager  USA Today bestseller Publishers Weekly bestseller Wall Street Journal bestseller Many people today think the Bible, the most influential book in world history, is not only outdated but irrelevant, irrational, and even immoral. This explanation of the Book of Genesis, the first book of the Bible, demonstrates clearly and powerfully that the opposite is true. The Bible remains profoundly relevant—both to the great issues of our day and to each individual life. It is the greatest moral guide and source of wisdom ever written. Do you doubt the existence of God because you think believing in God is irrational? This book will give you many reasons to rethink your doubts. Do you think faith and science are in conflict? You won't after reading this commentary on Genesis. Do you come from a dysfunctional family? It may comfort you to know that every family discussed in Genesis was highly dysfunctional! The title of this commentary is “The Rational Bible” because its approach is entirely reason-based. The reader is never asked to accept anything on faith alone. In Dennis Prager's words, “If something I write is not rational, I have not done my job.” The Rational Bible is the fruit of Dennis Prager's forty years of teaching the Bible—whose Hebrew grammar and vocabulary he has mastered—to people of every faith and no faith at all. On virtually every page, you will discover how the text relates to the contemporary world in general and to you personally. His goal: to change your mind—and, as a result, to change your life.

    Kahlil Gibran (1883-1931) is the author of the classic “The Prophet” and is bestselling American poet of the 20th century. He's honored in Arabic literature as one of the greats of their Romantic era. However, in America his critical reception has been much more mixed. While the public loves his work, critics celebrate him far less than his contemporaries, such as Robert Frost. But no one cares what elitist critics think. Beauty is a right, like air, water, and freedom of speech. Our tastes matter. In this poem of paradoxes, Gibran discovers the joy in defeat, the flaws of victory, and his own potential for triumph, hiding in the unlikeliest of places. May his masculine vision of the noble pursuit of purpose inspire us all.

    Neal Bawa is a technologist who is universally known in the real estate circles as the Mad Scientist of Multifamily. Besides being one of the most in-demand speakers in commercial real estate, Neal is a data guru, a process freak, and an outsourcing expert. Neal treats his $947 million-dollar portfolio as an ongoing experiment in efficiency and optimization. The Mad Scientist lives by two mantras. His first mantra is that "We can only manage what we can measure". His second mantra is that, "Data beats gut feel by a million miles". These mantras and a dozen other disruptive beliefs drive profit for his 700+ investors. In today's episode, Neal shares insights about his strategy for multifamily investing, some interesting market statistics, and what he expects the future of the real estate market to look like. Episode Link: https://multifamilyu.com/ --- Transcript Before we jump into the episode, here's a quick disclaimer about our content. The Remote Real Estate Investor podcast is for informational purposes only, and is not intended as investment advice. The views, opinions and strategies of both the hosts and the guests are their own and should not be considered as guidance from Roofstock. Make sure to always run your own numbers, make your own independent decisions and seek investment advice from licensed professionals.   Michael: Hey, everyone, welcome to another episode of the Remote Real Estate Investor. I'm Michael Albaum and today I'm joined by my very special guest, Neal Bawa and he's talking to us about multifamily investing syndications and some really, really interesting market statistics about looking forward into what the real estate market future holds for all of us. So let's get into it.   Hey Neal, thanks so much for taking the time to come on the show with me today. I really appreciate you coming on and sharing some wisdom with me.   Neal: Well, it's exciting to be here, especially because I am a fan of your company and until five minutes ago, I didn't know that I was doing a podcast with Roofstock. So super excited to be here.   Michael: Awesome. Well, surprises always tend to keep people on their feet. So I'm really excited to chat with you today. So I know a little bit about your background and who you are but for anyone listening, who might not be familiar if you can give us the quick and dirty who you are, where you come from, and what is it you're doing in real estate today?   Neal: Absolutely. I'm a geek, a nerd, a maverick, I come from Silicon Valley. I live in Silicon Valley, I'm a data scientist by profession with a computer science degree. I've had a successful tech career, which, after 17 years ended in the sale of my technology company. I got into real estate because I live in Texas Fornia and I was paying 53.7% of my gross income in taxes and so you know, I looked around and looked at lots of different avenues to save money, looked at solar panels looked at oil, and came to the conclusion that none of those were anywhere close to real estate in terms of the incredible taxation benefits. I tell people, real estate is America's number one legitimate tax mafia. That's really what it is. I mean, no other area has the astonishing, the shocking tax benefits that real estate has. So I started doing real estate for that and started sharing a lot of my data science, you know, thought processes and ideas and it sort of just exploded from there. The first time I shared my insights on data science, I had four people in front of me. A week ago, I had 1100 listening.   Michael: Oh my gosh, that is really, really cool. So I love chatting with data scientists with geeks and nerds as the self-proclaimed title that you gave yourself, because I think it puts a process. They come from very process oriented backgrounds, and it allows them to apply the same processes to real estate, which I'm sure we're gonna get into in a little bit. But you're doing some pretty amazing things in the multifamily space if I'm wrong, mistaken, right.   Neal: I am, I am and I'm a huge fan by the way of the single family space and often direct people to single family, but multifamily is where I've been simply because of its amazing scale. So I started off in single family and I have now moved over to multifamily. So currently have about 750 million in construction and various multifamily spaces such as built around and apartments have about 250 million that I'm managing that I purchased that are existing buildings, and then I dabble in other areas as well as multifamily is kind of the core foundation of my business, but I dabble in self-storage, industrial townhomes for construction and student housing as well. So I love all kinds. I love all kinds of different asset classes at different times. But I always come back to the Foundation, which is which is multifamily.   Michael: Okay, now, you said a lot of amazing things with a lot of big numbers and I want to come back to that in just a minute. But I'm just curious on a personal note, can you share with our listeners, what's the best compliment you've ever received?   Neal: I think that the compliment had and I actually use it now you already heard it today was a person that walked in and said, This is the geekiest and nerdiest presentation I've ever heard that was still very entertaining. So that second part was like, okay, so I can I can get geeky I can get nerdy but I can still kind of get it down to the level where people enjoy it and are not snoring, you know, five minutes into the presentation. So I love that comment because it's hard to be a geek and be a nerd and still, you know have these aha moments for my audience. So I've worked really hard on that.   Michael: I love it and clearly you're doing it well because people 1100 people are coming to listen so my hat off to you. So let's talk about what excites you about multifamily because I think that there's an argument to be made that the fundamentals but you talking about going back to the basics is single family. So why do you think that it's multifamily? Why do you make that argument?   Neal: Because of single family? The short answer is this single family is why I'm excited about multifamily. Okay. So, you know, you hear a few numbers all over and over again, people say these numbers that don't quite explain the meaning of this, right. So we say in this home, the you hear this all the time, we have a shortage of single family homes in the US 5 million, the actual shortage is 5.1 4 million. You also hear we have a shortage of multifamily or apartments in this, you know, in the US and the actual shortage today is 600,000 units. So you notice most of the shortage is actually on the single family side, right? 5.2 million there 600,000 on the apartment side and for both of those, the vast majority of the shortage, not all of it, but the vast majority came from the fact that the US actually didn't really build anything single family or multifamily between 2011 in 2015. So we used to build, you know, I don't know, eight 700,000 800,000 a million units and then all of a sudden, 1112 1314 15, we built less than half of that creating this massive supply demand gap. It was enormous and that's why that has led to rental growth being you know, to AX what it used to be in the previous 30 years, we've also seen massive growth in prices on the multifamily side where, you know, we used to buy, you know, properties at, you know, $40,000 a door, and now we're buying the same properties at $250,000 adoor. So it's just an incredible, massive increase there in Parador prices, a lot of it really comes back down to the fact that we are absolutely unable and I haven't seen any evidence to the contrary, we are absolutely unable to build starter homes in the United States, we actually don't have a shortage of single family. It's a very common misconception. We don't have a shortage of single family, we have a shortage of starter homes and when I talk about starter homes, I mean anything that in a reasonably reasonable Metro, I'm not talking about San Francisco Bay area, but let's say something in Phoenix, right? Being able to build a nice three to four bedroom home that's brand new for about $275,000 that has become categorically impossible today. Okay, for I'll give you an example of this, as you know, multifamily scales a lot better because when you're building 100 units, you get all these economies of scale, blah, blah, blah, okay, my cost of construction in New Braunfels, which, by the way, is not a major metro, you've probably never even heard of it. It's in the corridor between Austin and San Antonio and so you one could say Austin and San Antonio are both, you know, secondary markets, not primary like San Francisco or Los Angeles and in so and this, so this market must be like a tertiary market because it's in between my cost of construction for townhomes, not single family is well over 300,000 units. That's what my cost as a builder is, right.   So you understand what's happened since March 2020. Construction costs in the US have gone up by 34%. That's basically about 27 or 28 months, they're up 34% and the problem was there before COVID. So before COVID, even in the face of outstanding and insane amounts of demand. We were only able to build enough single family enough multifamily housing just to keep up with demand. So remember what I said 11, 12, 13, 14,15 those five years, we under built massively, and then 1617 1819 20, those five years we built okay, we did find we stayed up with demand. But we didn't make any dent in the single family shortage. We didn't make any dent in the multifamily shortage, those numbers stayed the same, because we were just building enough. And that was before this once in a century 34% increase in construction cost. That was before that increase. Today, construction cost has gone up. So but people who think that home prices will drop 20% simply have no understanding of the fact that there is it's impossible to supply a product. If home prices dropped by to even 10 or 15%. Most builders will either go out of business or simply pivot to build the rent. So they'll stop building anything for the market and what that will do is make the shortage worse, which means that there's even worse it's going to make it much worse, right? Because we absolutely have to build 500,000 units a year just to keep up with this year's demand. Forget about the shortage from before, right, we still want to keep up with the demand for this particular year. So we can keep the shortage from getting worse.   You know, otherwise, that number that 5.2 million number will go to 5.5 million and 6 million and 7 million so we'll keep getting worse and every time it gets worse rents rise prices right? So there's a cushion under home prices and most people wonder mentally failed to understand the mathematics here. If your cost of construction goes up 34% how are you going to deal with prices going down and if developers don't make enough homes, the only homes available in the market are the existing homes, right? So will competition on them will increase and haven't you been reading already in the last three months that permits in the US have dropped to 30% because as the US economy goes closer into a recession, so it's inevitable at this point that we'll go into recession, builders are very skittish, their construction costs are at an all-time high and so they're backing off. They're saying, You know what, I'm not going to take the risk of building 10,000 homes, I'll build five. So if everybody drops their permits by 30, or 40%, you're digging now a new hole for the construction that would have afforded for the delivery that would have happened next year and the year after. So now we're digging a hole in 2023, deliveries and 2024 deliveries. How do you reconcile that with a 20% drop in prices? The mathematics, the fact that people actually keep saying this with a straight face is mind boggling to a data scientist.   Michael: Yeah, I love that because you like everything you just said, I don't know, if you're watching the video, you saw my jaw on the floor, I'm gonna have to pick it back up here. But it just people feel like it feels because prices are so high and toppling, then interest rates are so high, but everything you've just said, I mean, factually, and mathematically makes so much sense and so how should people be listening? How should our listeners be thinking and reconciling? Okay, well, interest rates have gone so high, so fast. So the purchasing power has been drastically reduced. How should you be thinking about like, what's going to happen next?   Neal: So the first thing you should do is study the past, because the past gives you some wonderful examples of what happens when these sorts of things happen, right? So I'm gonna give you some benchmarks that will really blow you away, right? So in 1982, the Federal Reserve raised interest rates so fast, and so many times that mortgage rates went to 18%. As we're recording this, mortgage rates are at 5.3%. So when I say this in front of a an audience, I was teaching in Seattle, there were 500 people listening. So just, you know, for shits and giggles, I basically went down to the stage and I stuck the mic in people's faces and I said, So if interest rates were at 18%, would you buy a single family home? No. Okay. Do you think anybody else bought a single family home? No. What do you think prices went down? Why the answers were 20 to 50%? Well, history tells us that in 1982, when interest rates to buy new homes were 18%. Home prices declined by 10% for one quarter, bounced up by 10%, the following quarter, and actually ended the 1982 recession higher than the beginning of the recession. study history. It tells you how sticky real estate is. Now, everyone, the biggest reason why people feel that prices are about to fall off a cliff is 2008. There's no other reason because if you look at the data from the last 61 years, all you notice is home prices are extraordinarily sticky when interest rates go up, because interest rates haven't gone up once or twice, or three times. Nine times in the last 61 years, the Federal Reserve has hiked rates to kill inflation, nine times, right? Eight times the economy went into a recession, how many times you'd be have real estate prices go down? Once 2008 because 2008 was not a recession. 2008 was the largest single evidence of large scale fraud in American history. Millions of brokers and 1000s of bank banks committed large scale fraud on about 20 million Americans. That's what caused those home prices to fall. I see no evidence of fraud at this point. If I if anything, underwriting standards are pretty darn robust. The people have trouble…   Michael: getting a mortgage is such a pain.   Neal: Right? So when you look at this, and you say, so every everything that you're doing is based on what you saw in 2008. But you're not comparing the US economy today to 2008, right. So let's go back to looking at 2007 and comparing it to today's economy. So you want home prices to drop by 20%? Okay, fine. Question is, have you looked at how many jobs the economy was creating in 2007 and have you compared that to today's jobs, right? So in the last three months, and people are saying we're in a recession, and maybe we can talk about that, in the last three months, the US created 500,000 400,400 1000 jobs. That's 1.3 million jobs in the last three months, we actually struggled to create that many jobs in most regular years. So in three months, we created 1.3 million jobs and of course, before you know anybody says, hey, the quality of the jobs is very low. They're part time no, they're not. Please go back and look at a a shockingly high percentage of those are full time jobs and then people are like, Yeah, but people are not getting paid enough.   These are standard objections, right because people are not studying the radar. No wage inflation is very high in the US right now in work have the upper hand. Wait, inflation is at 5.1%. Most years, it's one and a half percent. What that what does that mean? People are good people who have existing jobs are getting big raises and then there's 11 million open jobs in the United States. This is the first time in US history that we've been at 3.5% unemployment and still have 11 million jobs open. So the economy is producing jobs at two and a half times. It usually does in a normal marketplace. How do you factor that in with home prices falling 20%? It's the it's a highly desired asset that people want. Now, it's absolutely likely that home prices will fall. But the big question is, will they fall on a nationwide basis and the answer is that there is no data to support that. markets that are red, hot, white hot, some of those markets that I invest in Phoenix, Boise, Las Vegas, Austin, these are markets that are at risk of a 10% correction, maybe some markets might even get a 15% correction. But the US is combined of 330 markets. When you look at those 330 markets, the chances that we will see a 1% overall price reduction is still low and most people are talking about 10 to 20% based on what data?   Michael: Ah, I love it. I love it. Neal, this is this is super, super insightful. So kind of thinking about the feel part of the emotional part and the people talking about the 20% correction. There are those who have said that the Zillow or the kind of red fins that give estimates of value or rentability. It's almost a self-fulfilling prophecy if I'm an investor and I go on Zillow and see hey, this was only valued at 100k by Zillow, but it listed at 120 I just wanna be paying 100k. Is there some risk of that with public sentiment that prices should be falling with the Zillow effect that's not trademarked?   Neal: Let's call it the Zillow effect and actually, it's a very important thing to talk about because if you know, the question really is, is there a risk of that the there's a 100% chance that the Zillow effect will drag home prices down? Here's the catch, though. The Zillow effect is both ways, right? So we've also seen the Zillow effect when prices go up. So you're gonna see a short term curve downwards as the market adjusts and then when it adjusts, a whole bunch of people are like, home prices are 10% down, this is my chance to get in and it's not just, it's not just the individual investors anymore. America is fundamentally different in 2022, than it was in 2008. There one single company called BlackRock, I think is Blackrock or Blackstone, maybe I'm confused about that, it has now launched a $50 billion fund, just to buy homes during a dip and their definition of a dip is 7%. So the moment they see home prices falling 7%, they're gonna come in, and there aren't, it's not a billion dollar fund. It's not a $2 billion fund, it's $50 billion, just Google it, right. So just Google $50 billion home buying fund. Now, that's one company, but there's at least two dozen of them. So real estate now is an institutional asset class that rival stock markets, and people who invest at a big scale in the stock market, their dip is 5% 7% 10%. So you'll get that dip and they'll come in and they'll, you know, scoop up a bunch of these properties and then at some point, people will realize this market isn't going to crash 10%, they're going to be like, Yeah, but it's seven or 8%, or 12%, down in my area. Let me grab some properties and then you're going to see that correction and now all of a sudden, your backup as before you know it, this is normal, right? The market that we've had for the last 10 years where prices only go up. That's bizarre, that's abnormal. That's never happened before in US history. What we've seen before is prices go up. But they don't always go up in a straight line, they go up, they're just a little bit, they go down for three or four months, then they go back up, and the overall direction is upward. in markets like this. The Zillow effect is necessary, right?   I'm telling people number one, a dip in market prices is incredibly healthy. I've got my fingers and toes crossed that it happens. I've got my fingers and toes crossed that the US economy goes into a recession and most people would beat me up for that. It's like, why would you have your fingers and toes crossed for that? Short answer is when we have this much money floating around. If we do not occasionally adjust the economic cycle, we always end up in a bubble and bubbles when they burst of this size, create trillions of dollars in losses and can drag us into a 2008 type recession but if you look at the history, and again, I keep going back to this, the Fed has raised and income interest rates nine times and eight of those the US economy went into a recession, right? Only one of those eight was a destructive event 2008. All other seven events were in economic cycle, reset or adjustment and when you actually look at the effect of that recession over a three year timeframe, the net effect was zero, the cyclically adjusted, some of the bad companies fell out some of the bad developers fell out some of the bad money in the marketplace fell out and in the if you look at the long term trend, that that bumped down that six month recession had no real impact on the economy 2008 I can't say that, right. So once again, there's one time when we've seen total destruction happen, and that was because we perpetrated large scale fraud on American millions of Americans and using that as our benchmark to make all decisions in the future simply means we're ignoring 61 years of history.   Michael: Which seemingly is easy to do for a lot of people.   Neal: But for most people, it seems right. So I'm kind of looking at this going, this doesn't make any sense. Do you not realize that we just produced 1.3 million jobs in the last three months and isn't that the best way for company, companies are saying we're worried about recession, they're issuing earnings, you know, forward looking, and they're saying your earnings might reduce, and then they go off and hire 500,000 people in a month, right. So I mean, it's lip service for the stock market, it's lip service, for their for their, you know, phone calls with their investors. But they're not doing what they're saying they're going to do, which is reduce hiring, reduce hiring is half a million. Now normal months tend to be about 200,000 reduce hiring should be 100,000 new people being hired or 50,000, not 500,000.   Michael: Yeah, yeah. It's so interesting, Neal. So how do you take the data and use it when you're investing?   Neal: So one of the things that I do, and I'll kind of give you a little story on this on how I got started, so right, so I'm a data scientist. So right around 2009. I am, you know, looking at the real estate market, and everything looks incredible for me, of course, everyone else is telling me this is the worst real estate market of all time. So I go and tell my family, we should be buying all kinds of real estate today. Just buy everything in the marketplace, you know, with every last dime you have and then my family basically decides that I'm so stupid that they don't want me attending family events in case I infect other people with my horrible ideas. So I'm excommunicated from the family because, they like this guy is going to infect other people and we're going to lose millions dollars. So I'm like, okay, I'm gonna prove these people wrong. So I go and get gathered the best of my data science information and  I mined the Zillow website, I mined the Bureau of Labor Statistics website, along with a Ukrainian hacker was pretty good at mining. So we, you know, gather all this data together, we put it in a statistical software called R and we look at every city in America and up at the top is an unknown city, a town called Madera, California, mid era, it's 20 minutes from Fresno, right?   Nobody's ever heard of Madera, California. I know Madera, right and so Michael, what my data is telling me is, Madera, California is by far fallen way more than it should have, because from Peak 2005, it had already fallen in 2009 by 73%. So prices had fallen by 73%. But most markets fell by 30 and 40%. You know, some markets didn't even fall that much like Dallas only fell by 11%. So I'm looking at this falling 73%. I'm like, statistically speaking, this is the greatest market of all time. So I drive a jump into my car, I drive 144 miles to Madera, and I go there, and I see all these very beautiful Kaufman and Broad homes. They're like, gorgeous, like, they're brand new, right? Nobody's clearly nobody's ever lived in them. So I go to a broker in Madera, and I say, hey, what's happening here? I mean, these homes are gorgeous, right? Why doesn't anybody want to buy them and the answer is, well, Kaufman and Broad basically sold these two farmworkers, none of them had documented income. They've all left, so half the city's empty and I'm like, so. So what does it cost to make these beautiful five bedroom homes today? So it's like, yeah, if you were doing new construction would cost 250,000? So I'm like, but I'm, what are they available for? Oh, you can buy these for 90,000 any day, you know, they're all available for 90,000. You can buy as many as you like and I'm like, why in God's name? Would I not buy these for 90,000? He says, Neal only for one reason, one reason only one reason. You can't rent them. There's too many empty homes in Madera, so you can't rent them.   So you basically would have to buy these homes and then keep paying your mortgage in the hope that the market comes back someday. I'm like, I have to find a solution to this. There has to be a solution. So I jumped in my car again, I drive another 20 miles to Fresno, which is the big city, right and I go there, and I talked to a broker and I say, I want you to sell me an ugly property. He's like, Neal, no, no, no, no, I'll send you a brand new one. I've got plenty of them. None. I said no, I want a 30 year old ugly property in Fresno and he says, okay, well, these, you know, sells me a property. I buy it in cash. It's $110,000 on Summerfield, right? I take that property, I put pictures up on the web, and I go to my Ukrainian team and I say I want to In an avalanche of leads, rental leads for this one property and they're like, why? I mean, it's a pretty decent rental market in Fresno. Why do you want that many leads, I'm like, trust me, just give me like 5000 leads for this one property and they're like, okay, so the guy is sort of goes to back to his Hacking Team, and he hacks a bunch of sites, and he writes a bunch of scripts, and all of a sudden that property is like on the web 300 times in 26 different places and so is just listing it continuously using his engine and before I know it, the phone's just ringing off the hook, I'm, you know, my mailbox is filling up with leads. So I hired a person in the Philippines, this lady on a full time basis, and I say, call every one of these people and tell them this property is rented. But I have nine brand new properties 20 miles away in Madera and I will give you $50 amazon gift cards, if you just drive there and attend an open house $50, no questions asked. We'll just give you an Amazon or gas card and so she starts making phone calls. She was pretty good at her job. She'd been in a call center and you know, half the people swore at her because they would they were like, yeah, but this is not press No, this is Madera and it's like, well, this property is rented, I, you know, I've got these options and she would keep sending pictures to them by text, right, because people weren't reading, reading their emails, she would keep texting pictures of these beautiful properties and before I knew it, people were attending those open houses, I already had to deal with the banks where the moment I got a rent contract signed, I would pay cash for the property the next morning. Well, before I knew it, 11 properties were rented and then I turned around and repeated my success with my family and all of a sudden, I was making massive amounts of cash flow on these brand new homes, that now of course, they're all you know, $400,000 each.   But even back then, I was making so much money every single day on properties that I knew had to come back. It's all about the cost of construction. You don't hear about this on podcast, if it costs $250,000 to build something, and it's available for $100,000. Buy it because construction costs have never gone down in human history. They've only gone up and they've gone shockingly, up in the last two years. But even before that they've never really gone down. Nobody was able to reduce construction cost during the 2009 downturn. They simply didn't build anything, right. But did anybody get a reduction in construction costs? That's not possible. Most of our construction material doesn't even come from the US or I mean, our steel comes from places like China, right? You can't get a discount simply because your economy is in a recession. So it's all about construction costs. So once I had proven this algorithm, I decided I'm going to tell the world about it. But that's another story. So that's really how I got started in in single family and then I wrote algorithms, again and again, published them. As I said, the first time I had people that were for people listening to me last week, I had 1100 people listening to me, it's really about those algorithms. The only thing that's changed and this is the answer to your question, sorry, long winded but the answer to your question is, what I found was, when I spend this, use the same algorithm for single family that it has everything that I can possibly imagine except scale, I can never grow to a billion dollar portfolio, I can maybe grow to 10 million or 50 million, and a lot of people have. But if I apply the exact same data with multifamily, I have an 18 month crystal ball and I'll explain what that means and I was getting the same exact results. But because I was buying 200 units or building 300 units at a time, I was able to hit my goal of a billion dollar portfolio and I did it in I don't know that from 2014 to 2021, right. So seven years, I was able to hit a billion dollars. You just can't do that in the single family side. Otherwise, single family pretty awesome.   Michael: Neal, I love it. I absolutely love it. What happens and then I want to hear about your 18 month crystal ball. But what happens when things switch where the cost of new construction is cheaper than buying something that's existing?   Neal: My business is in trouble. We're all in trouble. But and so I obsess over that greatly. I go to all the conferences where I see new real estate technology coming out. I go to the modular conferences, I go to the 3d printing conferences. I look at what Amazon is selling online in terms of you know, kits I look at. I look at everything and I can tell you with complete confidence that in the next five to seven years, there is no technology that will drop cost of construction in the US. The first technology that I think will make an impact right around the 2030 timeframe is 3d printing. Modular is a laughable technology in the US. less than point 1% of homes in the US are made through modular and the total volume of modular factories in the US is under 5000 units. We need a million. So unless Congress decides to put $150 billion towards building ala carte factories, there's no volume and because of a company called KATERA, a very famous company K A T E R A going out and losing $2 billion of investor money. Nobody in the right white mind wants to build a modular factory modular completely, you know, not useful. 3d printing, yes. But remember, 3d printing only works in edge case scenarios, because the property looks odd because of all that concrete that you have to basically put on. So I think it'll work in subsidized housing for the first 10 years. So let's say 2030 to 2040. It'll be in subsidized housing by the end of 2040. I think 3d printing will completely change all math around construction and we'll do a full reset of real estate. So luckily, I'll be gone long before them.   Michael: I would say, well, hopefully this podcast is still in existence, we'll have to have you back on in 2040. To talk about it. Yep, so give us give us some insight into your 18 month crystal ball because that's something I've never heard before.   Neal: Yeah. So I love you know, again, going back to Statistics, right? So when we're crunching numbers or big data with our teams, one of the things we realized is when a market starts to see home prices going upwards. Okay, so it's home prices are screaming upwards, right in a certain market. What we noticed was between 12 and 18 months later rents in that market explode. Okay, between 12 and 18 months later, but not immediately and you might say, why not? Well, the short answer is, what happens is that there's a bunch of people in that market that are looking at home prices going up, and everybody wants to be on that train when it's going upwards. So they jump in, they buy these homes, and then that makes more people want to jump in and buy those homes, because they're friends, you know, their homes are worth a lot more and so you see this upward momentum and then finally, the market hits a critical point where most people that are looking to buy a new home in that marketplace, their income doesn't allow them to qualify, not most substantial portion of those people, right, so you get to maybe a quarter of all the people in market X can no longer qualify based on their income, right and the moment that happens, those people, they realize that their dream of homeownership is gone forever and then they don't want to go live in an apartment, what they'd want to do basically is they either wanted to go live in a class A apartments, so it's amenitized, with pools and gyms, and all those kinds of things or they want to go live in a built to rent community, which I'm building lots of, which essentially is the same as a single family home, but it's for rent.   But it's better than a single family home, because you've still got the pool and the jacuzzi and, and the dog park and the park, right, because it's 200 single family homes in one community, it's just that you're renting that home instead of buying it. So now you have a massive increase in demand for those kinds of assets because people realize I simply cannot buy any more unless I get a huge salary increase. I'm going to be renting, then those people they want to rent the best property they can find. At the very high end, they're going to be doing built around a single family rentals below that they're going to be doing built around. Below that they're going to be doing class a multifamily below that they're going to be doing Class B and Class C multifamily. So all of these rental markets see a massive boost. So this crystal ball works for every market, we've never actually found an exception to this rule with some weirdo exceptions in in rent control markets where rents simply can't rise. So as long as the market is not rent controlled, we have never seen an exception, the crystal ball works. The only part of it that is a little fuzzy is sometimes we see rents going up as soon as 12 months after the explosive growth of home prices and sometimes it takes 18 months.   So that crystal ball makes my life so much simpler because crystal balls are so hard to find actual crystal balls and reliably work are so hard to find. So I just look at these markets that are seeing these massive increases in home prices and I go buy a multifamily there, I have a business plan to rehab that multifamily and do value ads with it and do or maybe I'm doing new construction. So either way, I have a business plan. But that's my plan A but what I've found so far is in every instance that I've done this plan B has worked better, which is simply the market just went exp has explosive rent growth. So I didn't actually ended up implementing my business plan. I simply ended up selling my property in 18 to 24 months and making my investors a lot of money. I mean, I don't know of anybody else in the US that uses Core Data Science, not just numbers, but core data science to do what we do. We've had 37% IRR 47% annualized returns for our investors by simply using the crystal ball over and over again, over and over again. I mean, and I can tell you what those cities local like today, and I guarantee you've not heard of many of those cities.   Michael: Neal, I love it. What would you say have seen massive price appreciation? What is that mean because I think massive could mean different things to different people. So is there a percentage that you say, hey, you know what we crossed this threshold, that's the city that I want to invest in?   Neal: Oh, absolutely. The short answer is with multifamily. It's only about 25- 30% increase in prices. So one of the things that most people don't understand is, you don't need prices to double to double your profits, because you use leverage. So let's say somebody buys a $10 million building, and $3 million of that is equity, right or down payment, and 7 million of that is a loan. Now, let's say this building goes from $10 million to $13 million, right? So you've it's only gone up 30%. So if you sell it for 13%, and you return that $3 million in equity, right, there's $3 million in profit, plus all the rents you got for two years while you were holding it. So you've doubled people's money in two years or three years, right, even though the property's only gone up 30%. So that's very important to realize, 25 to 30% increase, usually doubled investor money in during the whole time and recently, those hold times have been very short, two years, two and a half years. So essentially, that means 45-50%, annualized returns. Now in normal times, it takes about five years to get to that point. So you're, you're doubling investor equity in five years, but that's still 20% annualized returns and I think that's pretty awesome because the investors are doing nothing, they attend a quarterly webinar, and they read a monthly update and if they, if they like you, they don't even do that. They just sort of delete your emails when they come to cash flow, right. As long as their cash flow checks are coming in. They're not reading anything you're sending them.   Michael: They're not complaining. That's it, that's it. Neal, this has been so much fun. Where can people learn more about you continue the conversation, and what's the best way for them to get in touch?   Neal: So I'm lucky enough that I'm the only Neal Bawa on the World Wide Web. So simply typing in any URL, and bawl and hitting enter into Google. There's a couple 100 podcasts that I've been on. They're geeky and nerdy, like this one too. But and if you're interested in my metrics, if you want to figure out what is that next unknown city that is going to have explosive growth, type in Neal space Bawa space, location, magic into the web, and you will see a 45 minute course that walks you through that process. So you can find those cities yourself. Or you can simply be lazy and go to my website multifamilyyou.com and find location magic they are sometimes we call it real estate secrets, same webinar, go in there and there's a list there's a list of those cities. You know, and I believe a lot of them are tertiary markets, but a lot of them are actually 35 minutes away from some kind of primary or secondary market, I find that the primary market secondary markets are really too expensive and are at much greater risk today of price drops. So like I wouldn't go out and in buy a property in Austin. But I've surrounded Austin with seven different properties because I find it to be the hottest city in America for the next 10 years. I'm just not interested in paying what I have to pay what I would have to pay in Austin. So I've literally surrounded Austin in all four directions with my portfolio.   Michael: Super clever. I can't wait to see how that works out. Neal, thank you so much for taking the time and coming on sharing with us. Really appreciate it and I'm sure we'll be chatting again soon.   Neal: Thanks for having me on the show.   Michael: Okay, everyone, that was our show a big thank you to Neal for coming on. Tons and tons and tons and tons and tons of meat and potatoes there to go digest and really think about because Neal kind of flipped the script on what a lot of people have been saying for a long time. So as always, if you enjoyed the episode, definitely we would love to hear ratings, feedbacks review from all of you, and we look forward to seeing the next one. Happy investing…

    Welcome to August 13th, 2022 on the National Day Calendar. Today we celebrate cute steaks and a game with a checkered past. If you've ever wondered, “Where's the beef?” after being served a filet mignon, then it's probably not the steak for you. Mignon means “cute” in French and while filet refers to the most quality cut of the tenderloin, beauty is definitely in the eye of the beholder. The French use the term filet mignon to describe pork not steak and you would have to ask for filet de boeuf in order to get a cute little steak in France. So where did this name come from? Turns out it was an American author, O. Henry who coined the term in his 1906 novel “The Four Million.” Apparently, he thought it was a more ironic way to size up a teeny, tiny steak, than asking the waiter, “Hey, where's the beef?!” On National Filet Mignon Day, don't get too cute with the waiter, after all this tenderloin is still delicious! In the 1830s and 40s, officials in Connecticut passed a law to ban bowling. Apparently, the excessive gambling associated with the sport made it a threat to public welfare. Bowling at the time consisted of 9 pins, which is what the state outlawed. As a way to get around this, bowlers added an extra pin, creating the 10-pin game we know today. This new version of the game caught on in New England, though it took a few innovations before bowling caught on with the rest of the country. First, the material used for bowling balls was changed from wood to rubber. Then in the 50s the automatic pinsetter changed the game forever. On National Bowling Day get out and celebrate this family sport that's still on a roll.

    What does it mean to see others as image-bearers of God? How is this warped by American individualism? And what happens to justice when we abandon God for idols—false images of God? Based on the book Inalienable by Eric Costanzo, Daniel Yang, and Matthew Soerens, in this episode Skye Jethani (co-host of The Holy Post) talks to Sri Lankan Christian leader Vinoth Ramachandra about the intersection of idolatry and mission. He explains how what we worship shapes us and our work in the world in unexpected ways, and that he believes the American church needs to admit to and repent of its idols. “Inalienable: How Marginalized Kingdom Voices Can Help Save the American Church” by Eric Costanzo, Daniel Yang, and Matthew Soerens - https://amzn.to/3RyObjc 0:00 - Theme song and intro Interview with Vinoth Ramachandra 2:19 - Idolatry 5:35 - Idol of individualism 12:42 - Idolatry and injustice 18:25 - Idolatry's appeal and antidote 24:45 - Confronting idolatry faithfully 29:49 - Sponsor - World Relief Join the Path: https://worldrelief.org/holypost/ Debrief with Eric Costanzo and Daniel Yang 31:45 - Debrief start and recognizing our idols 36:58 - Moving beyond fear of pushback 41:13 - Engaging outside of our contexts 46:45 - The idol of Christian nationalism 54:42 - Credits Other resources mentioned: International Fellowship of Evangelical Students - https://ifesworld.org“Gods That Fail: Modern Idolatry and Christian Mission” by Vinoth Ramachandra - https://amzn.to/3dssPV2 Holy Post website: https://www.holypost.com/ Holy Post Patreon: https://www.patreon.com/holypost The Holy Post is supported by our listeners.

    Hello! It's hot, hot, hot. It's the dog days of August, which means that here in Southern California there's only three months left of summer. But we have a great show today. Now, I have spoken frequently of my affection for ME-TV. For me, it's television comfort food. Star Trek, Voyage To the Bottom Of the Sea. Perry Mason. Now, these were not the shows on in prime time when I was a kid. But they were the re-runs that were on when I was a kid. They were the shows on in syndication, five days a week, in Boston on good ol' Channel 56 or Channel 38. So these were the shows that I grew up watching every day after school. I'm sure that's true for many of you as well. Well, as it turns out, most, not all, but most of these shows all came from the same TV season. Star Trek, Batman, The Monkees, Lost In Space… The network television season that began in the fall of 1966 was the first all-color television season in American. It was really the dawn of modern television and, of course, all the stuff we see today was already going on back then. And there's a new book about it called PrimeTime '66 – 67 by Tom Shubilla and here's here. And THEN, one of the giants of that era of television was Irwin Allen. Allen gave us Voyage To The Bottom Of The Sea, Lost In Space, Land Of The Giants, The Time Tunnel and then turned around gave us The Poseidon Adventure and The Towering Inferno. A true giant of 60's TV and 70's film, and my good friend Bond, Jeff Bond has a new, massive book, It's not even a book, it's a tome, called The Fantasy Worlds Of Irwin Allen and he's here to talk about THAT. True Tales From Weirdsville is taking a deep dive into the mind of Bob Rafelson who not only created that gem of the 1966 TV season The Monkees, but also made the Monkees movie, HEAD, which is really about what a jerk you were if you liked the Monkees. Starring The Monkees. And then he made Easy Rider and Five Easy Pieces. You know, just ‘cause. And episode image by the great Drew Friedman, by the way!

    When you turn on the TV these days, you're bombarded with negative stories and talking heads claiming America is a no-good, very bad place. It can be hard to grow up in an environment where it seems like everyone thinks America's best days are behind her.Many young Americans believe such dark prognostications about the evil of America, and are convinced that their country is a lost cause.But rapper, podcaster, and life coach Zuby disagrees."You should be hopeful, because what is the alternative?" Zuby asks. "The alternative is being pessimistic and negative and black-pilled, and that becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you don't think you can win the game, why would you even play?"He adds: "If you live in the Western world, you're American, you're British, you're Canadian, and you exist in this time period, in 2022, you have it immediately, off the bat, better off than at least 90% of people who have ever walked the face of this planet."Zuby joins "The Daily Signal Podcast" to discuss why it's so important to remain hopeful about the nation's future.We also cover these stories:Food prices surge even as gasoline prices fall at the pump.FBI Director Christopher Wray condemns threats made against him and other law enforcement officers on social media.Twitter introduces new moderation policies designed to combat so-called misinformation on the social media platform before the midterm elections in November.
