Real estate is intertwined with the economy in so many ways, and real estate agents can sometimes have a hard time connecting these external factors with the home buying process. Our guest, Josh Cadillac believes in closing customers for life, which means building expertise on a deeper level that goes beyond the specifics and square footage of a home. When you give your clients context within the home buying process, not only does it help their future, but it means you're on a path to creating a lifelong customer.   [3:00] Josh and his background in real estate. [5:30] Josh talks about his motto, “Close for Life.” [6:45] It's an important part of Josh's life to do work that you're proud of, to have a life you're proud of. [7:40] Diving./, into the actual raw product real estate agents sell. [10:20] Sometimes there's a disconnect between real estate agent and customer. Why is that? [14:55] Real estate agents need to make the case on why a customer should trust them. [20:45] Sometimes just talking to your customer about the market and reciting facts can provide a lot of insight and trust with them. [25:45] Older real estate agents need to understand that the world, and the market, are much different than when they first started selling properties. They need to provide context to the younger homeowner. [32:50] Homeowners in distress still can grab an amazing price for their property. A real estate agent has to set the frame right so that they get the most out of the property. [33:25] We are not in a 2008 bubble. There are not a lot of people in negative equity positions. [34:00] Why do investors love real estate in times of high inflation? [39:35] Real estate has always been a good hedge against inflation. [44:00] Josh shares his thoughts on motivation and how you can motivate your customer to be more excited about the home buying process. [50:35] We need to stop trying to close deals and start trying to close customers for life.   Tweetables:   “A path to a fulfilled life is to take every part of your life, and have it /./.be something you do with excellence.” — Josh   “Because of the inflation we're seeing, real estate tends to be more attractive to investors. The reason for that is real estate tends to appreciate when there's inflation and rents tend to go up.” — Josh   “A house tends to be the perfect hedge for inflation. If you're renting, your rent will go up, but your wages usually won't go up. Wages tend to trail inflation.” — Josh   Guest Links:   Joshcadillac.com Josh on LinkedIn Nar.realtor/research-and-statistics   Additional Links:   Microcourses found at Learning.REALTOR   Crdpodcast.com   Learning.REALTOR for NAR's Online Education Training4RE.com — List of Classroom Courses from NAR and its affiliates   crd@nar.realtor   Host Information: Monica Neubauer Speaker/Podcaster/REALTOR® Monica@MonicaNeubauer.com MonicaNeubauer.com FranklinTNBlog.com   Monica's Facebook Page Facebook.com/Monica.Neubauer Instagram Instagram.com/MonicaNeubauerSpeaks   Additional Bio:   Joshua Cadillac ACE, CCIM, CDPE, MCNE, CRS, CRB, ABR®, GRI, RSPS, CSSA, CCFA, CIAS, MRETE, e-Pro, SFR®, BPO-R, CFA Master, TRC, LMB, AHWD, C-Rep, M-rep, CPMS, CIPS, DPP, PSA, ASP, SRS, LGC, CAM, LHI, Leed AP, RRP, LMA, LMR   Prior to entering the real estate industry as an agent, Josh was a commercial real estate investor and business owner of restaurants and other related companies. He started in real estate full time in 2008 and within the first two years, earned his broker license and many of the most prestigious real estate-related designations that exist. After a few years, Josh transitioned into a leadership role at the brokerage where he worked, assisting, training, and even mentoring agents to help them achieve success and reach their full potential in real estate. During this time, he learned the mistakes that many agents make that successful agents avoid and developed his philosophy of “not just closing deals but closing customers for life.”   Investors are one of Joshua's specialties and one of the many clients he enjoys working with. Joshua has a robust knowledge of the financial aspect of real estate and has worked as an investor himself, successfully flipping numerous properties both distressed and non-distressed. Josh took his passion for investing and helping agents close more deals (and customers) they already had and put together the ACE 2-day training course. Recognizing the tremendous lack of financial literacy that exists in popular culture he also wrote an easy-to-understand guide to how money works called The Roadmap to the American Dream.   Since then Josh has written several courses on how to achieve excellence in the various parts of the real estate business. He continues to work with clients in buying and selling their property, honing his skills, and making sure the information he provides is the most accurate and relevant it can be for the agents he teaches.   When he isn't busy closing deals and teaching, Josh enjoys a number of interests and hobbies including writing, ballroom dancing, reading, playing board games, watching a great movie, and traveling the world

Today on Sojourner Truth we bring you a conversation with Professor Chanda Prescod-Weinstein, Black feminist theorist and theoretical physicist and Selma James, long-time feminist activist and Wages for Housework co-founder, to discuss, "Our Time is Now," an anthology by Selma James and the legacies of inter-generational feminism. Selma James is a women's rights and anti racist campaigner and author. From 1958 to 1962 she worked with C.L.R. James in the movement for West Indian federation and independence. In 1972 she co founded the International Wages for Housework Campaign, and in 2000 helped launch the Global Women's Strike whose strategy for change is Invest in Caring, Not Killing. She coined the word unwaged, which has since entered the English language. In the 1970s she was the first spokeswoman of the English Collective of Prostitutes. She is a founding member of the International Jewish Anti-Zionist Network. She co authored the classic The Power of Women and the Subversion of the Community, which launched the domestic labor debate. Dr. Chanda Prescod-Weinstein is an assistant professor of physics and astronomy and core faculty in women's and gender studies at the University of New Hampshire. Her research in theoretical physics focuses on cosmology, neutron stars, and dark matter. She additionally does research in Black feminist science, technology, and society studies. Dr. Prescod-Weinstein is also a columnist for New Scientist and Physics World. Nature recognized her as one of 10 people who shaped science in 2020, and Essence magazine has recognized her as one of 15 Black Women Who Are Paving the Way in STEM and Breaking Barriers. A cofounder of Particles for Justice, she received the 2017 LGBT+ Physicists Acknowledgement of Excellence Award for her contributions to improving conditions for marginalized people in physics and the 2021 American Physical Society Edward A. Bouchet Award for her contributions to particle cosmology, including co-founding Particles for Justice. Her first book The Disordered Cosmos: A Journey into Dark Matter, Spacetime, and Dreams Deferred received the 2021 Los Angeles Times Book Prize in the science and technology category and was named a Best Book of 2021 by Publishers Weekly, Smithsonian Magazine, and Kirkus. It has been a finalist for several awards including the 2022 PEN/E.O. Wilson Literary Science Writing Award. The Disordered Cosmos was also longlisted for the OCM Bocas Prize in Caribbean Literature. Originally from East L.A., she divides her time between the New Hampshire Seacoast and Cambridge, Massachusetts.

On this episode, let's talk about some of the smart assumptions we can make about the rest of 2022. Of course, this is based on the numerous dialogues I've had in the past months with some of the smartest entrepreneurs, VCs, CEOs, and executives in Silicon Valley. If you're interested in those conversations, check out Christopher Lochhead: Follow Your Different in your podcast feed today. Welcome to Lochhead on Marketing. The number one charting marketing podcast for marketers, category designers, and entrepreneurs with a different mind. Assumption for 2022 Without further ado, here are the assumptions that could happen during the rest of 2022: A Recession will happen – Most of the smart people in Silicon Valley and beyond are strategically planning for a recession, both in their business and in their personal lives. If it doesn't happen, great. But it's still better to have options should it be the case. Inflation will continue – The US government and the US Treasury trying to grapple with it right now. Wages are also going up, and supply lines are still challenged in many categories and industries. The Ukraine-Russia War will continue, and it will be long – David Gergen (FYD 266) said that he thought they would likely be sort of punch-drunk fighters before this thing ended. But we also had Dmitri Alperovitch (FYD 269), a renowned security expert, say that the war, or at least the major aspects of it, would be over within the month. Though there are still possibilities of digital skirmishes between the two. Regardless, the effects of this war will be far-reaching, and have humanitarian and economic impacts even after the war. David Sacks (FYD 267) says that there might be a GOP landslide in November – Right now, Biden's approval ratings are some of the lowest in history, and Democrats don't seem to have a way to rally themselves, or show a specific point of view or plan to hold their position. People are Hurting – People are on the edge. You can see it all over the place. People's mental health seem a little fragile right now. These past couple of years have really taken its toll, and you can feel that fights could break out at the drop of a hat. It will take at least 5 years' time before Native Analog CEOs, CMOs and C-level executives to understand that Native Digitals are the new category of human – A great example of this is you hear people talking about returning to work. We're not returning to work, people might go back to physical offices, but we're not returning to work native, Digital's want to live in a native digital world. As long as Native Analogs executives do not recognize this, there will be a disconnect with the old and new categories, and those who fail to cope could be left behind. Variations and Market Caps will almost certainly continue to come down – That is what smart VCs are saying right now. So right now, they are “adjusting their thinking”. Given the data they have received over the past 12-24 months, they are expecting that there will be down runs that will happen. As a result of no. 7, raising money will be harder, and going public will also be harder – Most companies may very well have a tough time going public in the relative near term. But that should not discourage those who think that they have a new category opportunity to pursue them. It might just be the thing that helps you gather resources to go public. Cash is King again! (So manage it carefully) – This is also the result of both no. 7 and 8, so wise executive teams are managing their assets carefully. No one ever cost cut themselves to greatness – While it's all well and good that you are able to manage your resources carefully, don't be parsimonious. Recessions are not fun, but they can make good companies legendary – It is wise in tough economic times, to look for the growth opportunities to look for ways to make changes, and to look for ways to take your good company and make it legendary.

每日英語跟讀 Ep.K354: How the Wealthy World Has Failed Poor Countries During the Pandemic   Like much of the developing world, Pakistan was alarmingly short of doctors and medical facilities long before anyone had heard of COVID-19. Then the pandemic overwhelmed hospitals, forcing some to turn away patients. As fear upended daily life, families lost livelihoods and struggled to feed themselves. 跟許多開發中國家一樣,早在人們聽聞新冠病毒一詞以前,巴基斯坦就極其缺乏醫生和醫療設施。然後,這場大流行疾情讓各醫院無力招架,迫使部分醫院拒絕收治病人。隨著恐懼顛覆了日常生活,一個個家庭失去了生計,為養活自己而掙扎。 On the other side of the world in Washington, two deep-pocketed organizations, the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, vowed to spare poor countries from desperation. Their economists warned that immense relief was required to prevent a humanitarian catastrophe and profound damage to global prosperity. Emerging markets make up 60% of the world economy, by one IMF measure. A blow to their fortunes inflicts pain around the planet. 在世界另一頭的華盛頓,世界銀行和國際貨幣基金這兩個財力雄厚的組織誓言不讓貧窮國家陷入絕境。他們的經濟學家警告說,必須大力進行救濟,以防止人道災難和對全球繁榮的嚴重破壞。根據國際貨幣基金的一項衡量指標,新興市場占全球經濟60%。他們的財富遭受打擊,將給全球帶來痛苦。 Wages sent home to poor countries by migrant workers — a vital artery of finance — have diminished. The shutdown of tourism has punished many developing countries. So has plunging demand for oil. Billions of people have lost the wherewithal to buy food, increasing malnutrition. By next year, the pandemic could push 150 million people into extreme poverty, the World Bank has warned, in the first increase in more than two decades. 移工寄回窮國的薪水是這些國家經濟的命脈,如今已經減少。旅遊業的關閉使許多開發中國家受到重創。對石油的需求大幅下降,同樣極具殺傷力。數十億人失去購買食物的必要資金,營養不良加劇。世界銀行警告說,這場大流行疾情到明年恐將讓1.5億人陷入赤貧,是20多年來首度增加。 But the World Bank and IMF have failed to translate their concern into meaningful support, economists say. That has left less-affluent countries struggling with limited resources and untenable debts, prompting their governments to reduce spending just as it is needed to bolster health care systems and aid people suffering lost income. 而經濟學家們說,世界銀行和國際貨幣基金並未將自身的關切轉化為有意義的支持。這讓一些較不富裕國家在有限的資源與難以支應的債務中苦苦掙扎,迫使這些國家反而在必須加強醫療體系、救助收入減少的民眾之際,縮減支出。 “A lost decade of growth in large parts of the world remains a plausible prospect absent urgent, concerted and sustained policy response,” concluded a recent report from the Group of 30, a gathering of international finance experts, including Lawrence Summers, a former economic adviser to President Barack Obama, and Treasury secretary in the Clinton administration. 由曾任歐巴馬總統經濟顧問、柯林頓政府財政部長的桑默斯等國際金融專家組成的30人小組,最近在一份報告中總結道:「若無緊急、協調一致與持續的政策回應,世界大部分地區出現經濟空轉無成長的十年,仍是看來很可能的前景。」 The wealthiest nations have been cushioned by extraordinary surges of credit unleashed by central banks and government spending collectively estimated at more than $8 trillion. Developing countries have yet to receive help on such a scale. 那些最富裕的國家因有央行釋放巨額信貸,佐以政府的支出而獲得緩衝,總額合計逾8兆美元,開發中國家則未獲如此大規模的援助。 The IMF and World Bank have marshaled a relatively anemic response, in part because of the predilections of their largest shareholder, the United States. 國際貨幣基金與世界銀行做出的反應相對無力,部分原因是順應最大股東美國的意思。Source article: https://udn.com/news/story/6904/5015842

Lydia and Rudy join Imogen Woods from Prometheus Journal to discuss her articles on organizing social care workers and houseworkers. We talk about the concept of social care factory, and how the mass privatization has resulted in declining care standards as well as working standards. We talk about how democratically run care system can look like, how to organize social care workers and how "love" is used as a currency. We then switch to a discussion of the International Feminist Collective and the Wages for Housework movement, and contrast it to Maria Macciocchi's political work with the housewives of Naples. We briefly discuss the use/exchange value debate of housework, and what the role of a housewife or women's strike can be, and finish off by discussing how women should address sexism in the left. Aside from Imogen's two articles, we mention Louise Toupin's history of the Wages for Housework movement.

Tom welcomes returning guest Michael Gayed, Portfolio Manager at Toroso Asset Management. Michael is the author and publisher of the Lead-Lag Report. Michael discusses the inflationary picture for the economy and the hellish performance of the bond markets. We're seeing large drawdowns in bonds and severe pain in fixed-income bonds. Negative real rates have been a problem for a while and the problems in this sector have broad implications. Yields spiking and bond sell-offs will increase the cost of financing. These costs will reduce the income of most companies and countries. Europe is likely already in a recession and the United States may also have reached that point. He discusses the normal signs of recession and why the stock markets may not care. We see a strong dollar with strong commodity demand which is an interesting phenomena. It seems unlikely that the Fed can control inflation and higher interest rates are not going to help countries get more grain. Michael believes that unions are likely to make a long-term come back. It's difficult for the United States to produce many products at reasonable prices due to the cost of labor. It takes years to build up resources and manufacturing sectors. Most people today are looking for instant gratification. Rating agencies may be forced to begin downgrading companies, particularly in this environment. They are seeing a lot of abnormal market relationships but eventually, markets will correct for these conditions. He discusses his expectations for commodities and further money printing. Michael notes there is considerable infrastructure crumbling around the world. We don't know the true prices for food given the current circumstances. However, we've been heading toward a food crisis for many years due to a lack of investment. All of the current global problems will take considerable time to play out. Keep an eye on mortgage rates and housing because that may be the area where there is a considerable concern.

In this Real Estate News Brief for the week ending April 9th, 2022... the Fed's inflation fighting game plan, first quarter housing affordability, and the metros with more new listings.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 the Fed's plan to rapidly shrink its $9 trillion balance sheet to help control inflation. According to the minutes of its March meeting, which were released last week, the Fed plans to reduce its bond portfolio by about $95 billion per month. (1) Fed policymakers haven't made a final decision yet, but they say the reduction plan could begin next month.Federal Reserve Governor Lael Brainard said at a conference that she expects a series of rate hikes and a rapid winding down of the balance sheet to bring inflation to a “more neutral position.” That includes bigger-than-usual rate hikes. Kansas City Fed President Esther George said in a Bloomberg TV interview that “50 basis points is going to be an option that we'll have to consider, along with other things.” San Francisco Fed Bank President Mary Daly said during a meeting in Seattle that she doesn't expect the nation to fall into a recession. She said: “We could slow so it looks like we are teetering close to it, that's possible, but it will be a short-lived event I expect, and then we'll be back up.” (2)Jobless claims came in at 166,000 last week, which is the second lowest reading in U.S. history. The last time jobless claims were that low was back in 1968. The job market is strong, and that's one major buffer against the risk of recession. Wages are rising at a fast pace, although they are not keeping up with inflation. But jobs are plentiful, and workers are easily quitting one job for another. (3)Mortgage RatesMortgage rates are also rising quickly. Last Thursday, Freddie Mac said the average 30-year fixed-rate mortgage was 4.72%. The 15-year was 3.91%. It's gone even higher since then making it harder for many Americans to afford a mortgage. (4) In other news making headlines... Homes Affordability Drops in Many AreasRising mortgage rates combined with higher home prices are knocking a lot of people out of the home buying market. ATTOM Data Solutions' first quarter Home Affordability Report shows that home price growth in the first quarter was faster than it's been for at least 15 years. It shows that median-priced single-family homes in 79% of the counties analyzed were less affordable in the first quarter than in the historical past. The same report at the beginning of “last year” showed that 38% of the counties were less affordable. (5)ATTOM's Rick Sharga says: “It's certainly no surprise that affordability is more challenging today for prospective homebuyers.” He says: “As home prices continue to soar and interest rates approach five percent on a 30-year fixed rate loan, more consumers are going to struggle to find a property they can comfortably afford.” Inventory Increasing for Spring SeasonThere has been an increase in listings for the spring buying season, with more on the way. Realtor.com says that new listings were up 8% last week, and a new survey shows that 64% of the people in the survey plan to sell their homes in the coming months. (6)That's already starting to bring prices down. According to Redfin, 12% of the homes for sale had a price drop during the month of March, although Redfin's chief economist Daryl Fairweather says that “price drops are still rare” but they do show “there's a limit to a sellers' power.” He says: “Sellers can no longer overprice their homes and expect buyers to clamor at their door.” Redfin says the average home has been selling 2.1% above its asking price. (7) Cities with the Most New ListingsRealtor.com did some research as to which metros are seeing the most new listings. At the top of the list is Panama City, Florida. Daphne, Alabama is second on the list followed by Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; Jacksonville, North Carolina; Iowa City, Iowa, and Macon, Georgia. Rounding out the top ten are East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania; Greeley, Colorado; Boise, Idaho, and Atlantic City, New Jersey. It sounds like there's a little something in there for everyone.
