    The Fed has just crushed your strategy that’s worked for the last 4 years.

    Were you like most flippers, borrowing money from family and friends and taking money off your credit cards to get that 20% and then getting 80% financing with a hard money lender like kiava or others?

    Using leverage and other peoples money when the market is going up is a great powerful strategy but when the market falls its a financial nuclear disaster.

    Are your family and friends calling asking about their investment?

    When are they getting their money back? What’s the plan? Unfortunately their 20% is gone.

    What we do now is we negotiate a short sale with your hard money lender and we get the hard money lender to to pay off a portion of your investors money.

    We have closed thousands of short sales, we know exactly how to do this and we can do short sales in all 50 states.

  5. Electric Vehicle Customers Are Least Satisfied Buyers, New Study Reveals

    Results from the survey revealed that electric vehicle (EV) buyers are far less satisfied with the buying process than buyers of internal combustion engine vehicles. J.D. Power’s survey results put battery-electric vehicle (BEV) buyer satisfaction 56 points lower (791) than gas-powered vehicles (847). Premium BEV customers are even less happy, resulting in 831 points vs. the 864 their premium gas-powered vehicle buyer companions earn.

    The lack of charging instruction directly impacted the satisfaction of the buyers who purchased an EV. There was of a 100 point difference in customer sentiment when they did not receive the instruction versus when they did.

    1. The lack of charging instruction

      What? Nobody told you that it wouldn’t work to charge it overnight with a lamp cord out your apartment window?

  6. And yet, we’re in the middle of what can only be described as a bloodbath, as the tech giants shed jobs by the thousands. This week, Meta (formerly Facebook) and Salesforce made major cuts, joining firms like Stripe, Snap, Netflix, and Oracle, which have all held their own layoffs recently.

    Those are all very different companies, but they have one thing in common: They grew fast as the pandemic drove demand for digital products and services — and were caught flat-footed when the combination of a return to (relative) normalcy, rising interest rates, and inflation brought the good times to a halt.

    “At the start of COVID-19 in early 2020, the world rapidly moved online and a surge of e-commerce led to outsized revenue growth. Many people predicted this would be a permanent acceleration that would continue even after the pandemic ended,” Zuckerberg wrote in a memo to employees on why he’s cutting 11,000 jobs at Meta.

    “I did too, so I made the decision to significantly increase our investments. Unfortunately, this did not play out the way I expected,” he wrote.

    Still, there have long been signs that the good times wouldn’t last forever. Almost a year ago, Zoom reported growth that was well below Wall Street expectations, in a sign that the availability of vaccines and a general reopening of the global economy was going to see the reliance on tech wane. Over the summer, Roblox said it expected to operate at a loss for the foreseeable future as its more youthful userbase spent more time outdoors. Tech still plays a critical role in daily life, but it’s no longer the center of the universe.

    So it’s understandable, to some degree, that founders like Zuckerberg invested like the world had changed forever. But again, nothing lasts forever. And these gambles have ended up costing many thousands of people their livelihoods, if not put them at risk for deportation from the US in the case of immigrant tech workers.

    It’s positive that Zuckerberg and other chief execs are taking accountability for their mistakes here. But these leaders also showed a startling display of naivety at best and a straight-up failure of imagination at worst when they say that they didn’t see it coming.|2

    1. Zoom reported growth that was well below Wall Street expectations,
      If I recall correctly, Zoom was at one time more highly valued than Exxon.

  7. Looking at property listings is always fun to me because it shows you so many different ideas that you can create with your home, if you have the money to do so. Especially when I find homes that aren’t far from where I live. This home in Flint, Texas is just down the road from where I live in a much more exclusive neighborhood situated on Lake Palestine.

    According to the real estate listing this beautiful home recently dropped in price by $300k, the current list price is $2.8 million dollars.

    1. many different ideas that you can create with your home

      In this case, many ideas of what not to do. What a collection of bad taste and conflicting patterns.

      Nothing says “let’s party!” like white wall to wall carpet.

  8. The cryptocurrency market has been rocked by the FTX exchange crisis, which has resulted in a significant capital outflow from most digital assets. With assets like Bitcoin (BTC) correcting to a new yearly low, analysts are now projecting that the current market conditions might spill over to other sectors.

    Indeed, commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence Mike McGlone has stated that the crypto market slump can trigger a capitulation in other markets in what he termed as ‘macroeconomic dominoes’, he said in a tweet on November 9.

    “This Bitcoin, Crypto Slump May Trigger Macroeconomic Dominoes – The breakdown of Bitcoin and crypto assets may trigger capitulation sell stops in most markets that have been under pressure this year,” said McGlone.

    1. Oh dear…

      Binance stepped away Wednesday from plans to purchase FTX, unable to overcome issues surrounding the rival crypto exchange founded by Sam Bankman-Fried.

      “As a result of corporate due diligence, as well as the latest news reports regarding mishandled customer funds and alleged US agency investigations, we have decided that we will not pursue the potential acquisition of,” Binance said in a statement.

      “In the beginning, our hope was to be able to support FTX’s customers to provide liquidity, but the issues are beyond our control or ability to help,” Binance said.

    2. “Indeed, commodity strategist at Bloomberg Intelligence Mike McGlone has stated that the crypto market slump can trigger a capitulation in other markets in what he termed as ‘macroeconomic dominoes’,…”

      Seems unlikely, given that most people have the common sense to avoid speculation in imaginary currencies. Other financial markets barely budged on news of the FTX collapse.

      But if he is lobbying for bailouts, then I understand his remark.

  10. Homebuilder Taylor Morrison and developer Christopher Todd Communities have cut ties, ending a partnership that would have brought six co-branded build-to-rent communities to North Texas.

    The three-year contract between the firms ended and was not renewed following lengthy negotiations, Martha Moyer Wagoner, who handles media relations for Christopher Todd Communities, told Bisnow. A reason for the termination was not disclosed.

  11. Real estate investment trust Hudson Pacific Properties is feeling the effects of a combined economic slowdown and a sluggish return-to-office movement that has kept office leasing depressed for more than two years.

    The Los Angeles-based company reported net losses of $6.8M in the third quarter and $10.9M year-to-date in its latest earnings release, although leasing velocity improved and it divested some assets, boosting third-quarter revenue by 14.4% to $260.4M.

    Hudson Pacific’s in-service office portfolio was 87.8% occupied and 89.3% leased at the end of the third quarter, according to financial filings. A large tenant move-out in San Jose — Qualcomm left behind 377K SF — pushed that figure down.

    A mezzanine lender that loaned $72M to Relevant Group to fund the completion of the Tommie and Thompson hotels in Hollywood has initiated a UCC foreclosure to get repaid.

    The 190-key Thompson hotel and the 212-key Tommie hotel are headed for auction on Dec. 21, according to Eastdil Secured marketing materials for the auction obtained by The Real Deal. The lender, Machine Investment Group, loaned Relevant Group money for the properties in April 2021.

    “Relevant has engaged counsel and advisors and are currently working to determine the most prudent path forward,” Relevant co-founder Grant King told TRD.

    The hotels have encountered trouble since the start of the pandemic, when the projects racked up bills with contractors that allegedly went unpaid, the Hollywood Reporter reported in 2021. Opening dates were pushed back multiple times and both hotels ended up opening in the second half of 2021.
