“California Dreaming” – TB, Disease Exploding – KOMO Spotlights Tragic Spread of Homelessness in City of Angeles

July 2nd, 2019 Comments off

There are an estimated one million rats in Los Angeles – L.A. – the largest city in the “Golden State” of California.

 

Diseases not common in modern times are coming back with a vengeance.

In the modern version being played out today on the streets of Los Angeles and almost every other major city in the state, tens of thousands of the homeless are desperate for shelter, services and of course, drugs,” says KOMO’s YouTube page. 

KOMO was the news station which produced the viral “Seattle is Dying” video report.

There are “Lots and lots of drugs. Eric Johnson reports on Paradise Lost: Homeless in Los Angeles.”

There are some 36,000 homeless in LA, about 59,000 in the county, per KOMO’s report.

The video shows you the result of what $620,000,000 spent by LA to ‘fight’ homelessness. $620 million. Where did that much money go, when there are so many homeless? That’s about $17,222 per homeless person.

 

 

Earlier today, the Daily Business News on MHProNews spotlighted President Trump’s interview with Tucker Carlson, and part of that interview focused on this explosion of homelessness on the streets of major cities, such as L.A., NY City, San Francisco, Seattle, and other metros.  The president says that a common denominator is that these are cities run by Democrats, a liberal “establishment.”

During the recent Democratic debates, housing was brought up by a few of the candidates, but not all. In their defense, it wasn’t a question that NBC News asked, and given short times for an answer, it is perhaps not surprising that more didn’t speak out.

But what sources suggest is that housing will be a serious topic in the 2020 campaigns.  The president and the GOP is clearly laying the foundation for their case.  Democratic hopefuls have spoken outside of the debate arena about some huge proposed programs, but some in the industry say those plans could prove harmful to the interests of manufactured housing.

This will be a topic that MHProNews will monitor and report on. Until next time, while opportunity knocks, tragedy seems to be thumping much louder.

Discarding Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac = A Nightmare

August 12th, 2013 Comments off

While the Republican-led House Financial Services Committee is supporting legislation to totally eliminate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from the mortgage business with no government interference , the Democrat-majority Senate Banking Committee says the government needs to be a backstop to make certain borrowers of modest means can continue to obtain financing. Even President Obama, as MHProNews reported here Aug. 7, states the mortgage industry would be better served with more private sector involvement. Meanwhile, as HousingWire reports, Fox News blogger Peter Morici and USA Today both say eliminating Fannie and Freddie would raise the cost of borrowing to a level that would be out of reach of the middle class.

Big Apple Sees Rise of First Modular Apartments

July 12th, 2013 Comments off

Near the tip of Manhattan Island in New York City is rising the Big Apple’s first modular residential structure, a seven-story apartment building of concrete and steel. The Stack, as builder Gluck+ Architects calls it, is being assembled at the rate of four modules a day. All 56 of the 45-foot modules are expected to be set by next week, with a projected October, 2013 completion of the interior finish work. Counting off-site building, the entire project will require ten months, six months less than on-site construction in this town called Inwood. As MHProNews has learned from fastcodesign, the modular units are assembled in a factory in Penn. and trucked to the site. “Normal construction is a nightmare,” say chief architect Peter Gluck. But in a factory situation, “You can easily supervise what’s being done, whereas in normal construction, that’s really hard to maintain.”

Home Sales and Indications Continue to Rise

April 11th, 2013 Comments off

CNNMoney tells MHProNews evidence strongly suggests the real estate nightmare is coming to an end, as, according to data provider CoreLogic, home prices over the past year rose in 92 of the 100 largest real estate markets. Sales volume increased in 69 of the top 100 markets and 35 showed double-digit gains. Mark Fleming, CoreLogic’s chief economist, says the market is still healing, and these next two years will be transition years. The median time for a home on the market has fallen in the last year from 99 days to 71 days, and in some markets bidding wars have returned. Real estate broker Redfin says 73 percent of the offers their clients made were up against rival bidders in Jan. and Feb. this year, versus 56 percent 1.5 years ago. Some markets experiencing a surge in sales are investor driven, and may fall back.
