In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending January 14th, 2022... what the Fed is saying about tighter monetary policy, the latest rise in consumer prices, and where mortgage rates are right now.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week, and confirmation hearings for Fed Chief Jerome Powell. President Biden nominated him to continue in his role as the central bank's Chairman. Powell told the Senate Banking Committee that super low interest rates are no longer needed to prop up the economy, and that short-term rates should go higher to control inflation.The Fed has penciled in three rate hikes this year, but Powell says the central bank is prepared to do more, if necessary. It's a balancing act because hiking rates too much and too fast, could lead us into a recession, and job losses. But Powell believes that rates can go higher without hurting the job market. MarketWatch described his characterization of the process as a “soft landing” for the economy, and not a recession.Powell says that “if things develop as expected, we'll be normalizing policy, meaning we're going to end our asset purchases in March, meaning we'll be raising rates over the course of the year.” (1) (2)As it stands, consumer prices rose again in December. The government says they were up .5% in December to a 40-year high of almost 7%. When you strip out food and energy, the inflation rate was up .6% in December to 5.5%. As reported by MarketWatch, that figure is a 31-year high. (3)Those high prices contributed to a drop in consumer spending, along with the spread of the Omicron variant and the supply chain disruptions that are leaving some store shelves bare. The government says that retail sales figures were down 1.9% in December. Internet retailers, like Amazon, experienced the biggest declines. Those figures were down almost 9%. Sales fell about 7% for department stores, 5.5% at furniture stores, and almost 3% at places that sell electronics, like Best Buy. (4)The unemployment report surprised economists with an increase in initial state claims. They were up 23,000 to a total of 230,000. Continuing claims dropped significantly however. Almost 200,000 people stopped collecting checks last week, leaving just 1.56 million people on the unemployment list. (5)Consumers are feeling more pessimistic about the economy because of inflation and Covid. The University of Michigan reports that its consumer sentiment index fell a few points in January, to 68.8. That's the second-lowest reading in a decade. The lowest was a few months ago when it dropped to 67.4 in November. (6)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates rose by almost a quarter point last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up 23 basis points to 3.45%. The 15-year was up 19 points to 2.62%. Freddie Mac says the rate increase was “driven by the prospect of a faster than expected tightening of monetary policy” by the Federal Reserve in response to inflation, supply chain disruptions, and labor shortages. (7)In other news making headlines… Mortgage Delinquency RatesThe mortgage delinquency rate has returned to pre-pandemic levels. CoreLogic's Loan Performance Report shows that 3.8% of mortgages were delinquent by at least 30 days in October. That's only one-tenth of a percent higher than October of 2019. And the trend is expected to continue. (8)The report shows CoreLogic's chief economist, Frank Nothaft, says that loan modifications have helped lower the number of loans that are seriously delinquent. But he says they were still half a million higher in October than they were at the start of the pandemic in March.The drop in mortgage delinquencies has lowered the foreclosure inventory rate to its lowest level since 1999. CoreLogic says foreclosures are down in all 50 states, and expects them to drop further throughout the course of this year.Second-Home Demand Demand for vacation homes continues to rise. Redfin says it was 77% higher in December than it was before the pandemic due to new work flexibility and low mortgage rates. The second-home market is expected to remain strong, although higher interest rates could impact demand along with new second-home fees from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Those will take effect on April 1st. (9)That's it for today. Check the show notes for links.

On Make Me Smart, we often turn to economists, professors and policy wonks to make us smart about some big topics that need explaining. Today, we’re turning to a different kind of expert, sci-fi writer Neal Stephenson. His latest book, “Termination Shock,” is about climate change, geoengineering and what happens when a billionaire decides to take matters into his own hands. “I’m past trying to convince people that climate change is real. What I was more interested in was, for an audience that believes that climate change is real, what are some outcomes that we might see, in the near future, as different people in different countries begin to try to come to grips with that problem, because opinions differ as to what the right approach might be. And whenever you get differing opinions, you’ve got conflict, and whenever you’ve got conflict, you have the potential for a good story,” Stephenson said. We’ll talk with Stephenson about how he thinks about big, complex issues like climate change and what this genre can teach us about the future and solving problems in the real world. Speaking of the future, Stephenson, who coined the word “metaverse” in 1992, weighs in on all the hullaballoo over the metaverse today. In the News Fix, what’s behind all the news, or lack thereof, that we’re not getting from Tonga after this weekend’s volcano eruption. Also, you can get your free rapid COVID-19 test now. Then, a listener drops some facts on the James Webb Space Telescope and what a former Google researcher was really wrong about. Here’s everything we talked about today: ““Termination Shock,” by Neal Stephenson: An Excerpt” from The New York Times Neal Stephenson on “Termination Shock,” geoengineering, metaverse from CNBC “Neal Stephenson Thinks Greed Might Be the Thing That Saves Us” from The New York Times “Undersea cable fault could cut off Tonga from rest of the world for weeks” from Yahoo Finance “California surpasses 7 million coronavirus cases” from The Los Angeles Times U.S. stocks fall sharply as 10-year yield tops 1.80%, Goldman earnings disappoint from MarketWatch “Mum admits to being mystery Netflix user who’s watched Bee Movie 357 times in a YEAR” from The Sun

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending January 1st, 2022... investor hot spots for single-family homes, insurance premium price hikes, and Zillow's list of most popular search areas.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review. Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from the last week of 2021. The year closed with fewer people asking for unemployment benefits. Initial jobless claims were down to 198,000, which is close to a 50-year low. Continuing claims also dropped. Government figures show they were down by about 140,000 to 1.72 million people. The numbers reflect a labor shortage and companies that are not eager to lay anyone off because it might be difficult to replace them. According to MarketWatch, economists are predicting the labor shortage will continue in 2022, but will not be so pronounced. (1)Pending home sales for November were down for a third month in a row. The National Association of Realtors says they were down 2.2% from October. That's more than the .8% drop in pending home sales that MarketWatch had forecast. On a year-over-year basis, they were down 2.7%. NAR'S chief economist, Lawrence Yun, blames the dip on a tight supply of homes which continues to push home prices higher. He also expects to see higher inventory levels in 2022 which will help slow the price growth. (2)The latest report from the S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city price index shows an 18.4% year-over-year gain in home prices for October. The national index shows a 19.1% annual gain. Both are slightly “lower” than they were in September. But some cities are showing extremely strong price growth, such as Phoenix. Year-over-year home price growth there is 32.3%. Tampa and Miami are also very high due to the strong housing market in Florida. (3)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates moved slightly higher, but the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is still hovering slightly above the 3% level. Freddie Mac says it rose 6 basis points last week to 3.11%. The 15-year was up 3 points to 2.33%. (4) Freddie Mac's chief economist, Sam Khater, says: “Mortgage rates have been effectively moving sideways despite the increase in new Covid cases.” (5)In other news making headlines…Investors Want Single-Family HomesThe buying spree continues among investors who are snapping up single-family homes, and it's not just the more affordable areas they are interested in. According to CoreLogic, California is experiencing a rebound in single-family homes that are purchased by investors. (6)CoreLogic economist, Thomas Malone, says: “After a decade of moving away, investors are coming back to California.” He says: “The California rise is likely due to large investors, who seem less deterred by the high prices found in the area.”Those California metros include the Silicon Valley region and San Francisco in the North, and the Los Angeles area and the counties of Riverside and San Bernardino in the South. Other metros attracting investors are Atlanta, Phoenix, and the McAllen-Edinburg-Mission region of Texas down near the Southern tip of the state. Las Vegas, El Paso, Memphis and Salt Lake City are also attracting a large share of investors.Insurance Premiums Are ClimbingThe cost of homebuilding materials and climate change risks are turning into higher insurance premiums, and that's giving some property owners sticker shock. The Insurance Information Institute says that premiums are up about 4%, with an average annual premium of $1,400. Realtor.com reports a warning from insurance companies, that premiums will be going even higher. (7)Realtor.com says the cost of rebuilding a home is going up because of higher prices for building materials in general. But, it says, homeowners with the biggest increases are those in disaster-prone areas. Chief economist of the National Association of Home Builders, Robert Dietz, says that building material prices are pushed higher after a natural disaster for six to nine months, while people are, of course, scrambling to rebuild their homes.Most Searched for Real Estate in 2021 The rise of remote work has put a popular vacation area in the spotlight. According to page views on Zillow, South Lake Tahoe was the most popular city last year. Zillow says it catapulted into the number one position because of a high number of page views for each listing – about 5,500! (8)Calabasas in the Los Angeles area ranked as the most popular small town. But it isn't your typical small town. Calabasas is known for having many celebrity residents with homes that are valued at an average of $1.5 million. California's Big Bear Lake also attracted a lot of page views, which Zillow ranked as the most popular vacation town. Other hot spots include Newport, Oregon as the most popular beach town; Tempe, Arizona as the most popular college town; and Lavallette, New Jersey, as the most popular retirement community.That's it for today.

SHOW NOTES Good Note : After being laid off and deflated, she decided to pursue her idea to build a business… after a lot of hard work, she's built a great life for herself helping others. Bad Note : It is hard to find people that match your vision. She struggled for a while trying to find the right person. Trust your gut. Gathering Fans : Educate people. Give as much as you can to help people understand why your service is important. Practice Makes Progress : There is no such thing as natural born talent. You get good at anything through talent. Instrument of Choice : Otter.ai is a great tool to transcribe your videos and audio. THE STORY Donna Serdula pioneered the concept of LinkedIn profile optimization, realizing early on that the LinkedIn profile was so much more than just an online resume. A job change in 2006 led her back to LinkedIn as Donna looked for tools to help her build a sales territory.

The Real Estate News Brief: Year-End Optimism, Surge in Home Sales, SFR Investor Pay Raise

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending December 25th, 2021... why consumers are feeling optimistic about the economy, the latest surge in home sales, and which investors are getting a nice pay raise.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week and a busy Christmas holiday. There's now just one week left to the year, and economists say the economy is showing signs of strength despite the current COVID-19 surge. Last week, the number of Americans filing for unemployment benefits held steady at just over 200,000 applications. That's below pre-pandemic levels, which were averaging about 220,000 per week. The number of people already collecting checks shrank a bit, to 1.86 million, which is slightly higher than the pre-pandemic level of 1.7 million.Although the holidays could be skewing those numbers somewhat, Rubella Farooqi of High Frequency Economics feels they are heading in a good direction. She said in a MarketWatch report: “The data can be noisy during the holidays, but filings continue to trend down on strong demand for workers amid a labor shortage. The risk now is from new virus variants which are forcing businesses to voluntarily close in response to rising infections.” (1)November ended with an inflation rate of 5.7%, as the nation deals with the Covid-19 Omicron variant. That's up from 5% in October and the highest level we've seen since last summer when the Delta variant was surging. (2) But inflation doesn't appear to be impacting consumer confidence this time around. Consumer spending rose .6% in November (3) and the Conference Board's index was up several points for December.Conference Board President, Steve Odland, says consumers may feel less concern at this point, because it appears the Omicron variant is not as dangerous as Delta. He said on CNBC's Power Lunch last week: “Part of that may be simple Covid fatigue… but also Omicron is less lethal than prior versions and I think that's giving people more confidence all the way around.” (4) Real estate continues to be one of the strongest parts of the economy. New home sales hit a seven-month high in November. They were up 12.4% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 744,000. That's up from 662,000 in October, although that was heavily revised from about the same number we're currently getting for November. So the November number could change. But economists say the housing sector is strong with a median sales price of $417,000. That's a new record high. They are also expecting price growth to slow when the Fed starts raising interest rates next year, to control inflation. (5) Existing home sales were also strong in November. The National Association of Realtors says they were up 1.9% to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 6.46 million. That's a 10-month high, and the third month in a row that they've increased, despite the inventory issue. NAR says inventory levels were down 13% compared to November of last year, but surveys done by Redfin.com show a rise in the number of homeowners planning to sell in the early part of next year. (6)Mortgage RatesAnd homebuyers can still get a screamingly good mortgage rate. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was down 7 basis points last week to 3.05%. The 15-year was down 4 basis points to 2.3%. (7)In other news making headlines…Single-Family Rental Rates Rent growth for single-family homes is turning into a generous pay raise for investors. The latest report from CoreLogic shows that rent levels were up 10.9% year-over-year in October and that vacancy rates are at 25-year lows. (8) CoreLogic economist, Molly Boesel, says it's the sixth month in a row that rent growth has hit a new high for single-family homes. She says it's rising in lock-step with higher home prices, and that: “Rent growth this October was more than three times that of a year earlier.” And last year was a good year because of the Covid migration to the suburbs and single-family homes.The metros showing the highest growth rates are Miami with a 29.7% year-over-year increase, Phoenix with a 19.3% increase, and Las Vegas with a 16.5% increase. The best rent growth has also been for higher-priced rentals. 2022 Homebuyer StrategiesHigh home prices have left many wannabee homebuyers in the rental market, but realtor.com says they are optimistic about their ability to buy a home in the coming year. The survey shows that more than a quarter of those shoppers were unable to buy a home and that many are planning new strategies for 2022. (9)Among those strategies are plans to make all-cash offers or larger down payments if possible, making offers above the asking price, and writing home seller love letters which are currently frowned upon and illegal in the state of Oregon. 22% of those surveyed say they plan on going over their budget for a home, and 13% plan to make an offer on a home they haven't seen in person.That's it for today.

In fact, many Americans are grabbing benefits at 62 because they want to make the most of their Social Security dollars while they're still relatively young and fit. Or, as one reader put it: “You never know when your health will turn south, so ‘Spend it while you're able'. Another consideration--you never know if Social Security will always pay full benefits.

BIO: Jack McColl, the founder of Credit Stacking, has the knowledge and in-depth understanding of the credit stacking strategy. He has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs and been a part of growing multiple 7-figure businesses. STORY: Jack lived in Bali for three months when he was 26. He saw an opportunity to create an Airbnb business there, got a few houses, and hired locals to help manage day-to-day business activities. He paid rent and wages in cash, but problems from the landlords and his staff were all he got. Jack barely made any returns from the venture. LEARNING: Do a lot of market research before you venture into any business. Finance your deals with 0% interest business credit.   “The more you can borrow, the more you can make, and the higher chance of success you're going to see in any business venture.”Jack McColl  Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/jackmccoll/ (Jack McColl), the founder of https://www.creditstacking.com/ (Credit Stacking), has been featured on MarketWatch, Disrupt Magazine, Yahoo Finance, and many other publications and podcasts for his knowledge and in-depth understanding of the https://go.creditstacking.com/start-case-study-a (credit stacking strategy). Jack has mentored thousands of entrepreneurs and been a part of growing multiple 7-figure businesses. He has accessed multiple six figures in credit lines. He's funded multiple business startups with this money, and he's shown thousands of other entrepreneurs how to do the same thing. You can trust that the Credit Stacking education and mentorship are in a class of their own, taught by industry experts. Check out Jack's https://go.creditstacking.com/start-case-study-a (case study) that shows the exact steps he used to get approved for a half-million dollars. Worst investment everWhen Jack was 26, he moved to Bali, Indonesia, and lived there for three months. During that period, he saw an opportunity to create an Airbnb arbitrage business with his brother. They hired locals to help them with the day-to-day management of the venture. The brothers financed the business venture with their cash and paid all payments, including paying the workers, using that cash. Unfortunately, these people didn't deliver on what they were supposed to. The business was suffering from poor reviews and ratings on AirBnB, and the brothers were having issues with landlords who refused to rectify the problems with the houses, yet they had already paid rent in full. It turns out, running a business abroad from home is not a walk in the park. Jack regretted not doing more research before embarking on this venture. Lessons learnedDo a lot of market research before you venture into any business. Vet and hire high-quality talent to help manage the business. Finance your deals with 0% interest business credit. It's safer because you can charge it back if the service providers don't deliver. It also gives you more time because you're not paying interest. Andrew's takeawaysSetting up a business in a foreign land is hard, so don't be overconfident and overlook the challenges. Anytime you can protect your purchase. Do it. Actionable adviceHave as much access to capital as you can because the more access you have, the stronger you will be in any business negotiation or business venture. You don't even have to have money. You just need to have access to cash. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsJack went from zero to getting approved for half a million dollars in credit. And so, over the next 12 months, his goal is to get approved for another half a million dollars because he wants a total of a million dollars of approved credit.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending December 11th, 2021... new FHFA conforming loans limits, tappable equity at a record high, and where drones may be used to inspect buildings.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic News We begin with economic news from this past week, including a report that shows inflation has hit a 39-year-high. The government reported a .8% increase in consumer prices last month. That puts the yearly rate at 6.8% which is more than 3 times the Federal Reserve's 2% target. Higher prices for gas, motor vehicles, housing, and food account for most of the increase. The Fed expects inflation to fall below the 3% level by the end of next year. Some economists expect it to take longer. (1) The latest unemployment report shows that initial claims dropped to just 184,000. That's the lowest level since 1969. The government adjusts the numbers for seasonal employment so they may be skewed somewhat, but as MarketWatch reports, they are extremely low and economists expect them to go even lower as the economy continues to strengthen. There's also a worker shortage so many employers are hesitant to let people go. (2) Even if they aren't firing workers, there's been a surge in the number of people leaving or switching jobs. As MarketWatch reports, almost 39 million people have quit their jobs this year. That includes a record 4.4 million in September. Economists expect the year to end with a record-high quits rate. Some are calling this trend “The Great Resignation.” (3)Consumer sentiment turned positive in December, although many Americans are still worried about inflation. The University of Michigan index rose to 70.4. That's up three points from the November reading, but down about 10 points from a year ago. (4)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates are still close to the 3% level. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was down one basis point to 3.1% last week. The 15-year was also down one point, to 2.38%. (5)In other news making headlines…Conforming Loan Limits Move HigherThe Federal Housing Finance Agency released final figures on conforming loan limits for 2022. For most of the nation, the maximum amount will be $647,200.The maximum moves above the baseline amount for more expensive areas like the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York City, and others. The highest amount rises to almost a million dollars in those pricier locations, to $970,800. That's 150% above the baseline amount. (6)New Record High for Housing Prices Home prices are a moving target and continue to move higher although price growth has slowed down a bit. Redfin says the median home sale price rose to a new high during the four-week period that ended on December 5th. It says the median price is now $360,250. That's 14% higher than it was a year earlier, and 30% higher from December of 2019. (7)The average sale-to-list price ratio was 100.5%. That means the average home sold at .5% over it's listing price. That's only the average. In 43% of the transactions, homes sold for more than the listing price. In 31% of the sales, sellers accepted an offer within one week of the homes hitting the market.Tappable Equity SurgesSkyrocketing prices are giving property owners a lot of equity. Black Knight says total U.S. home equity was up $250 billion in the third quarter to a total of $9.4 trillion. That's 32% higher than the same time last year. AND it's almost 90% higher than it was right before the housing market collapsed into the Great Recession. (8)Black Knight's data and analytics president Ben Graboske says: “That works out to nearly $178,000 available in tappable equity to the average homeowner with a mortgage before hitting a maximum combined loan-to-value ratio of 80%.”Average mortgage debt is now down to 45.2% thanks to higher prices. That's giving consumers and investors more tappable equity that can be used for other purposes such as home improvements or the purchase of investment properties. Building Inspections with Drones?Drones could be the next great tool for New York building inspectors. They usually perform their inspections using binoculars and cameras from the street, and sometimes from the roofs of other buildings. Construction Dive reports that the city may soon authorize the use of drones for those inspections. (9)Officials say they could “yield more detailed results and greater safety, as well as greater efficiency and documentation.”That's it for today. Check the show notes for links.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending December 4th, 2021... the $2 trillion real estate milestone, the homebuyer's search for suburban homes, and the brick-and-mortar store comeback.Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week. Pending home sales surged higher in October. The National Association of Realtors says they were up 7.5%. That's substantially higher than the .7% predicted by MarketWatch economists. Contract signings were higher in all four U.S. regions, but the Midwest had the biggest gain of 11.8%. (1) Home price growth has cooled off a bit. The S&P CoreLogic Case-Shiller 20-city price index shows a 19.1% year-over-year gain in September. That's a half a percent lower than it was in August, which is not much of a decline. Craig Lazzara of the S&P DJI says that housing prices continue to show remarkable strength. He describes the change of pace as “deceleration.” (2)The weekly unemployment report shows that initial claims jumped back above the 200,000 mark. Just two weeks ago, the number of applications hit a 52-year low of 194,000. It could be that some people decided to wait until after Thanksgiving to file for their benefits. (3) The U.S. jobless rate has fallen again, from 4.6% to 4.2%. MarketWatch reports that almost 600,000 people rejoined the workforce in November, and the participation rate of 61.8% is now the highest it's been since the beginning of the pandemic. (4)If we look at job growth for the construction industry, builders added 31,000 positions last month. Specialty contractors created the most with 13,000 new positions. Civil and heavy engineering accounted for the rest. First American economist Odeta Kushi says: “It was a strong month for construction.” (5)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates didn't move much this last week. Freddie Mac says the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was up just 1 basis point, to 3.11%. The 15-year was down 3 basis points, to 2.39%. (6)In other news making headlines…$2 Trillion in Real Estate Deals for 2021?Real estate transactions could hit a huge milestone this year. CoreLogic says they topped $600 billion in the second quarter. That's after $750 billion in transactions for the first quarter. Researchers say if the trend continues, we'll hit the $2 trillion mark by the end of the year. (7)CoreLogic economist, Thomas Malone, says it's a combination of high home prices and the migration to bigger homes in more expensive areas. He says: “The value of transactions has skyrocketed despite sales volumes continuing a relatively normal growth trend.”The report also shows that if you look at the last four quarters from the second half of 2020 to the first half of 2021, real estate transactions have already hit the $2 trillion mark. CoreLogic says the total value for that time period was $2.25 trillion.Suburbs Are Not Losing Their AppealThe desire for a home in the suburbs is still going strong, even as many people return to the cities. Realtor.com says that 62% of the online home views in September were for suburban homes while the other 38% were for urban areas. (8)Realtor.com's chief economist, Danielle Hale, says the pre-pandemic suburban vs. city dynamic is changing because of remote work options and high rents in the city. She says: “The price premium is shrinking between notoriously expensive urban housing and suburban for-sale homes, typically known for more bargains.” Inventory levels also reveal the difference. They were down 13% annually in September for suburban areas and only 8% for cities.More Stores Opening Than ClosingE-commerce may have disrupted the retail environment and put a lot of brick-and-mortar stores out of business. But now, the opposite appears to be happening. According to a new analysis by the IHL Group, there are more store openings than closures for the first time in four years. And many of those new openings are due to e-commerce websites wanting a brick-and-mortar presence. (9)As reported by the Wall Street Journal, Levi Strauss is one example. The clothing company plans to open 100 U.S. stores over the next five years. Dick's Sporting Goods is another example, with plans to open more than 800 stores under several brand names. And of course, there's e-commerce giant Amazon which is planning to open its own department stores.For 2021, IHL expects that 4,361 more stores will have opened than were shut down.That's it for today.

In The News: Peter (og Ryan): 2021 Had Even Fewer Movies Than 2020 — Here's What That Means455 movies were released domestically in 2020. 2021 Box office will probably more than double 2020  to date, just 408 movies have been released (domestic) this year, pacing below 2020. 400-500 movies a year use to be the norm.  In 2001, 413 movies were released, in the subsequent years it picked up to nearly 1000 movies traditional studios will be more selective about what gets made and released in theaters, as audiences are being far more selective as we emerge from the pandemic. To that end, Market Watch reported last year that 70% of people would rather watch a movie at home. Will the amount of movies pick back up? Peter (og BJ): Universal's 2022 Theatrical Slate Will Hit Peacock Within 45 Days Of ReleasePeople were shocked when Universal announced that "Halloween Kills" was going to be available to stream on Peacock the same day it hit theaters“ NBCUniversal announced that the majority of titles from UFEG, which includes Universal Pictures, Focus Features, Illumination, and DreamWorks Animation, will release on Peacock as early as 45 days after their theatrical and PVOD releases. This new theatrical window will take effect in 2022, with Simon Kinberg's "The 355," Scott Derrickson's "The Black Phone," Ol Parker's "Ticket to Paradise," Julian Fellowes' "Downton Abbey: A New Era," and "Halloween Kills"  Ben (og Ryan): STX Entertainment, Studio Behind Hustlers And Bad Moms, Sold For $173 MillionSTX Entertainment, the studio behind movies like "Hustlers" and "Bad Moms," which has been sold to a private investment firm The Najafi Companies  The studio's library of titles will likely be changing hands next year, we dont know which streaming service, or multiple streaming services they might end up on The fate of one of the only studios still regularly producing mid-budget movies regularly now hangs in the balance. What does this mean for mid-budget movies?

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending November 27th, 2021... the winter forecast for home sales, what investors are doing with their money, and who's suing lawmakers over real real estate “love letters.”Hi, I'm Kathy Fettke and this is Real Estate News for Investors. If you like our podcast, please subscribe and leave us a review.Economic NewsWe begin with economic news from this past week, and a Fed that's growing more concerned about inflation. Central bank officials still believe that prices will rise more slowly next year, but they are acknowledging that inflation pressures could last longer than they anticipated because of labor and supply chain shortages. These issues have pushed the yearly inflation rate to a 32-year-high of 6.2%. If you recall, inflation was close to “zero” about a year ago. The situation could prompt the Fed to begin the tapering of its bond-buying program “before” the end of this year. It has been buying $120 billion in Treasurys and mortgage-backed securities as an economic stimulus. (1)High prices are not preventing consumers from spending money. They have extra cash to spend from pandemic savings along with higher wages and bigger paychecks. That pushed consumer spending up 1.3% in October. According to MarketWatch, about half of the increase is due to inflation, so spending is up about .7%. (2)The latest unemployment report shows the number of people applying for state benefits is now “below” pre-pandemic levels. The Labor Department says initial applications dropped to 199,000 the week before Thanksgiving. That's the lowest level since November of 1969. The number of continuing claims also dropped to a pandemic low of about 2.05 million. (3)New home sales continue to rise. They were up .4% in October, according to the Commerce Department. The median price of a home is now $407,700. That's a new record high. The report also shows that builders are pumping new homes into the market. The supply was up 3.3% to a 6.3-month supply. (4)The sale of existing homes also rose in October, because of high demand, but buyers are still dealing with a lack of supply and higher prices. According to the National Association of Realtors, sales were up .8% between September and October, to a seasonally-adjusted annual rate of 6.34 million. That's also 5.8% lower than the year-ago numbers. (5)Despite the low unemployment figures and the amount of consumer spending, consumer sentiment has now dipped to a 10-year low. The University of MIchigan index dropped from 71.7 in October to 67.4 in November. Consumers are mostly concerned about inflation, and a lower standard of living because of those higher prices. (6)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates held steady last week. Freddie Mac says the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage is 3.1%. The 15-year is up 3 basis points to 2.52%. (7)In other news making headlines…Cold Winter, Hot Housing MarketThe typical winter slowdown for home sales is probably not going to happen this year. Economists from realtor.com and the National Association of Realtors expect strong demand to continue right through the holidays into next year. (8)Realtor.com's Danielle Hale says the demand continues and that “sellers can expect to see plenty of buyers” while NAR's Lawrence Yun expects “more sales compared to pre-pandemic winters going back all the way to 2006.”In addition to this persistent demand for housing, supply chain issues have delayed some buyers who will continue to search for their dream homes this winter. The limited inventory will also give seller's an incentive to put their homes on the market.Investor Buying SpreeInvestors are also very busy. Redfin reports that investor purchase activity for residential property is up 80% in the third quarter compared to a year ago. It says that investors bought 18% of all the homes sold in Q3, and spent a record $64 billion. If you translate that into the number of homes purchased by investors, the total was a record 90,215 homes. Almost 75% of them were single-family homes. That's also an all-time high. (9)Redfin Senior Economist Sheharyar Bokhari says: “Increasing home prices fueled by an intense housing shortage have created opportunities for investors to reap big profits.” Average monthly rents were up almost 11% year-over-year in September. That's the fastest rent growth in at least two years.Which cities are attracting most of the investor activity? Atlanta; Phoenix; Charlotte, North Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; and Miami. You can see the full list in the Redfin report. We'll have that link in the show notes.Love Letter LawsuitAn Oregon real estate firm is suing state lawmakers over a ban on homebuyer “love letters.” Those love letters typically offer details about the buyers that could lead to a biased decision by the seller. And that could violate fair housing laws. (10)The plaintiffs at Total Real Estate Group are calling the ban “censorship.” They say the ban is based on mere speculation that sellers might sometimes rely on information in these letters to discriminate based on a protected class.” The Oregon law is the first of its kind, and is set to take effect in January.That's it for today.
