Should I buy the dip in the Tesla stock price?

first_imgShould I buy the dip in the Tesla stock price? Our 6 ‘Best Buys Now’ Shares Image source: Tesla James J. McCombie | Wednesday, 24th March, 2021 | More on: TSLA “This Stock Could Be Like Buying Amazon in 1997” I’m sure you’ll agree that’s quite the statement from Motley Fool Co-Founder Tom Gardner.But since our US analyst team first recommended shares in this unique tech stock back in 2016, the value has soared.What’s more, we firmly believe there’s still plenty of upside in its future. In fact, even throughout the current coronavirus crisis, its performance has been beating Wall St expectations.And right now, we’re giving you a chance to discover exactly what has got our analysts all fired up about this niche industry phenomenon, in our FREE special report, A Top US Share From The Motley Fool. Tesla (NASDAQ: TSLA) stock began 2020 priced at $84. By the end of 2020, the Tesla stock price had risen 945% to $794. There was a five-to-one stock split in August 2020. In December 2020, Tesla became a member of the S&P 500. Both of these events could have added fuel to the fire under the Tesla stock price, but there were also operational highlights. Tesla produced 509,737 cars in 2020 and made a profit compared to making a loss on 370,232 cars in 2019. In fact, consistently reporting quarterly profits is what made Tesla stock eligible for S&P 500 inclusion.The Tesla stock price has not enjoyed the same success so far in 2021. Perhaps a pullback was only natural after such a surge. I, however, think this might be a sign that other investors could be questioning Tesla’s stratospheric stock price.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Electric vehicle competitionBy the end of the decade, Volkswagen wants 70% of its EU and 50% of its US and China sales to be electric vehicles. It hopes to sell 1m electric vehicles this year. US-based General Motors has announced plans to phase out internal combustion engines entirely by 2035. Although Tesla undoubtedly enjoys a first-mover advantage, some serious, committed competition will not allow for the total market dominance scenarios advanced for Tesla.Tesla makes good money by selling regulatory credits to legacy automakers to offset their fleet CO2 emissions. Without these regulatory credit sales, Tesla would be unprofitable. Over 2020, its operating margin would have been 1.38% compared to 6.32% when they are included. Tesla will likely see its credit revenues dwindle as competition continues to intensify. But, losing credit revenues will not be an issue if car sales and margins continue to increase.Robotaxis of the futureI don’t expect to see wide adoption of fully autonomous vehicles — go anywhere, in any weather, without a human behind the wheel — inside 10 years. For that reason, I don’t think Tesla will sell millions of cars for use as dedicated robotaxis or to individuals looking to generate an income from sending their cars off to work. I think Tesla will have to become a true mass-market manufacturer to sell more cars. That means Tesla’s current mass-affluent average sales price of around $56,000 will have to fall towards a mass-market one. For reference, the current average sales price of a car in the US is about $20,000.Well-off Tesla owners add solar panels, batteries, and fast chargers to their homes. I expect the uptake of energy generation and storage solutions by Tesla car owners to fall as it expands into the mass-market, putting the brakes on that source of revenue growth.Tesla stock priceIf I assume the company sells 11m cars in 2030 at an average sales price of $26,000 with an operating margin of 11%, I can see more upside on the current Tesla stock price of $670. However, selling an extra million or so cars each year for a decade while improving margins tenfold and halving the average sales price is optimistic. And even if that did happen, the Tesla stock price would still be trading at eye-watering earnings multiples in a decade for anything other than low single-digit stock price growth. Of course, if the mass adoption of fully autonomous driverless cars looks likely in the near term, it would definitely change my mind about Tesla. I do think they have an advantage there.

Smarter Rugby with Ian McGeechan – Support Lines & Out Ball Drill

first_imgFriday Apr 16, 2010 Smarter Rugby with Ian McGeechan – Support Lines & Out Ball Drill We’ve got a few coaching tips for you ahead of the weekend as we catch up with the ASICS Smarter Rugby series featuring Ian McGeechan, who this week talks about support lines and positioning on attack.In the first clip McGeechan talks about the ball carrier having players on each shoulder with the option of popping to them just before contact, with them changing their running line to beat the defender. So you’re basically hitting the gap before catching the ball.The second video is similar in nature in that it’s also about changing your path before taking the ball, but this time it’s when hitting the outside of a defender, as discussed by Jeff Wilsonin a video I posted a while back.The trick is to time your run nicely after getting a long pass that allows you to drift outside before or while taking the ball, thus throwing off the would be tackler. It’s a great technique and one that can be used to great effect, providing the service is good from the inside man.

When Laura and Luigi Giordano, two young entrepreneurs and art collectors, bought and renovated a villa in Oleggio – province of Novara – to establish their residence, they decided to use part of the basement as a space for reading, listening to music and display artworks. Despite the intentions, the big room – 16.6 m long, 5.4 m wide and 2.4 m high – remained idle for some years and the artworks of the collection were left in the same wooden crates in which they had arrived.Save this picture!© Giovanna SilvaIn 2011 Laura and Luigi Giordano began to go often to and to appreciate Spazio 33, a new bar/cafeteria that BINOCLE had just completed in Oleggio, and asked the same designers to help them to transform their basement into an exhibition space.Save this picture!© Giovanna SilvaThe project is made of very few elements that leave unchanged the existing space to modify only its light, color and atmosphere. The galvanized trays – attached to the ceiling to host electrical cables – are kept and used as the support for the new linear lights replacing the existing ones, too large and technically unfit.Save this picture!© Giovanna SilvaPoplar plywood sliding panels are hanged to galvanized iron rails and organized along the perimeter of the room. Sometimes the panels cover the existing ‘basement windows’, sometimes they work as sliding doors to protect and hide two big wooden libraries and a little desk. Save this picture!© Giovanna SilvaEither way and above all the plywood panels are – together with the existing concrete walls – the support to display the artworks from the private collection. On the 6th of Ottobre 2012 Laura and Luigi Giordano opened their basement for art to the public with an exhibition entitled ‘Johannesburg’ featuring works by Gabriele Basilico, Piero Pizzi Cannella, David Finn, Mona Hatoum, William Kentridge, Anselm Kiefer, Saba Naim and Pascale Marthine Tayou.

AD Classics: Villa dall’Ava / OMA

To read the stories behind other celebrated architecture projects, visit our AD Classics section. Much of the spatial composition of the Villa dall’Ava was influenced by its site, in a garden on a hill. It was completed in 1991 in the residential area of Saint-Cloud, overlooking Paris. The clients selected OMA to design a house with two distinct apartments—one for themselves and another for their daughter—and requested a swimming pool on the roof with a view of the Eiffel Tower.+ 21Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMARecommended ProductsWoodEGGERLaminatesWindowsLibartVertical Retracting Doors & WindowsWoodBruagBalcony BalustradesDoorsStudcoAccess Panels – AccessDorThe site is delineated by three segments along the east-west axis: the garage, set at street level and paved in asphalt, the main volume of the house, and the garden, which extends the length of the site. The garage is accessed at street level and embedded into the sloping site. The villa itself rises from the level of entry to a roof deck perched three stories above. Its visually distinct volumes are stacked and oriented to optimize views of the garden and distant city. A poured concrete wall extends the height of the villa and establishes a main axis along the length of the site. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe communal spaces for the family are located within the main volume, a glass box ensconced in the garden. The architects conceived of the site as a room bounded by vegetation and terrain; the living room set within a larger room. Broad glass windows puncture the concrete wall at garden level so that the living spaces appear fully wrapped in glass. The walls create a permeable barrier between interior and exterior and slide to open fully onto the garden. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThough the villa’s perimeter is almost entirely glass at garden level, it is not completely transparent, as one might expect. The south facade is composed of transparent and sandblasted glass, screening a portion of the living room from view while permitting the passage of light. The minimalist kitchen is hidden from the exterior, tucked behind a curved, translucent wall within the living space. Along the north facade, a thickened partition of plywood obscures the living spaces from view. Only the elements of circulation, which occupy the space between the plywood wall and glass facade, are visible from the exterior. A narrow ramp leads from the entry to the garden level, and cantilevered steps provide access from the living room to the apartment above. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe swimming pool occupies the roof level of the central volume. From below, there is no clear indication of its existence. The surface of the water reaches just below roof level. The lack of guardrail or parapet accentuates the horizontality of the roof, juxtaposed by the apartments jutting in perpendicular directions at each end. Save this picture!Garden Level Plan © OMAThe apartments cantilever beyond the central volume, hovering over the garden. Both are clad in corrugated aluminum of contrasting tones, one with an aluminum finish and the other colored red by a copper lacquer. The corrugations are oriented horizontally, reinforcing the orientation of the apartments in contrast to the central volume. The material covers the underside of each apartment box, extending even across the interior, emphasizing the reading of volume over surface. The stair, which ascends from living space to apartment overhead, appears to slip through an aperture in the volume of continuous aluminum. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe continuity of each apartment’s cladding is interrupted only by bands of strip windows. The bathrooms are housed in opaque, rectangular volumes set back from the exterior walls. Slender steel columns painted shades of black and gray support the larger of the two apartments, which dominates the street facade. Save this picture!© Hans Werlemann, courtesy OMAThe strip windows and thin, repeated columns recall Le Corbusier’s Villa Savoye. The transparent glass box with inset, opaque service volumes appears inspired by Mies van der Rohe’s Farnsworth House and the Glass House by Philip Johnson. OMA received wide recognition for another innovative residence completed after Villa dall’Ava, Maison à Bordeaux. OMA Partner Rem Koolhaas was awarded the Pritzker Prize in 2000, for an extensive body of work including Villa dall’Ava.

HFT’s Family Carer Support Service responds to individual approaches for support. We provide lots of information and run workshops around the country to help family carers.“The £60,000 donation from The Freemasons’ Grand Charity is a very welcome and generous contribution which will enable us to expand our vital services in response to the increasing demand for information and support. Over the next few years we will aim to support more family carers, year on year, and to extend our service to those who are harder to reach, such as the increasing numbers of older carers. “In the year ended 30th November 2007, The Freemasons’ Grand Charity gave grants totalling over 5.7 million to worthy causes”, said Michael J. Flynn, J.P., Provincial Grand Master for Bristol Freemasons.“It is, therefore, both a pleasure and a privilege, on behalf of The Freemasons’ Grand Charity, to have presented to HFT a cheque for £60,000 to aid the valuable work carried out by the Trust for people with learning disabilities and its associated Family Carer Support Service.”ENDSIssue Date: 14 October 2008For further information please contact:Irena Babic, HFT PR Consultant, Tel: 01275 343547email: [email protected] to editorsHFTPreviously known as The Home Farm Trust, HFT is a registered national charity for adults with a learning disability.HFT provides services for over 1,000 people in supported living, registered care homes, advocacy, supported employment and day services.The charity runs a Family Carer Support Service (FCSS) which provides support each year for 4,000 family carers of adults with learning’ Grand CharityThe Freemasons’ Grand Charity is the central grant-making charity of all Freemasons in England and Wales.

TCU football player sparks making of ‘End Racism’ mural

first_imgNewsCOVID-19SportsFootballTCU football player sparks making of ‘End Racism’ muralBy Renee Umsted – August 10, 2020 2061 Previous articleAlumni, students disappointed in virtual commencementNext articleBig 12 to continue with fall athletics Renee Umsted TCU will not raise tuition for the 2021-22 academic year + posts Renee Umsted Renee Umsted Facebook Renee Umsted TCU’s mural, located on the sidewalk on Frog Alley, was unveiled Aug. 6. Hollins said this location was chosen because it sits between the athletic and academic sides of campus. Hollins said he has been working to “bridge the gap” between students and student-athletes at TCU, especially Black student-athletes, and the mural is a symbolic way to overcome this separation. “But even more so, in this time we see people not standing up for student-athletes of color even though they stand up to cheer for us during games,” Hollins said. “If you cheer for us on the field, cheer for us off the field when we are fighting to end racism.”Students, faculty and staff were invited to sign their name on the mural Friday. In doing so, they took a pledge to work toward ending racism. “Racism has penetrated the roots of our country and has been a part of its history since the beginning. With the climate of today’s world, we must decide what we are fighting for. No longer will we stand for any form of racism. By signing what we are fighting, you are committing to standing in solidarity with those that have fought against racism for years. By signing your name, you are committing to educating yourself and others of the injustices in America. By signing your name, you are committing to taking action. We must END RACISM.” Kellton Hollins’ pledge.Hollins said he hopes the mural will continue to encourage people to have the “hard and uncomfortable conversations especially when it isn’t trendy.” printStudents at TCU sign their support for the “End Racism” mural by Schollmaier Arena on Aug. 7, 2020.

(Photo by Jack Wallace.)Days after taking part in the “End Racism Now” mural in downtown Fort Worth, offensive guard Kellton Hollins approached top university officials with an idea inspired by his experience. Hollins shared his thoughts with Chancellor Victor Boschini and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Jeremiah Donati in an email he sent as soon as he woke up June 29. In the message, he asked about creating a statement on TCU’s campus similar to the one downtown.And as Donati said in last week’s town hall meeting, he and Boschini thought that was “a wonderful idea.”Signing his name on the Main Street mural, Hollins said, reflected his desire to participate in the fight against racism in the country. “I thought it would be even more powerful and impactful to my fellow Black student-athletes if we as a TCU Athletics community displayed solidarity in the fight,” he said in an email.

Call for end to hostage-taking after Iran frees two Azerbaijani journalists

first_imgNews AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia News Organisation RSF_en September 5, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Call for end to hostage-taking after Iran frees two Azerbaijani journalists Receive email alerts RSF calls for a fully transparent investigation after mine kills two journalists in Azerbaijan Follow the news on Azerbaijan Russian peacekeepers deny foreign reporters access to Nagorno-Karabakh AzerbaijanEurope – Central Asia center_img June 4, 2021 Find out more News Reporters Without Borders is relieved by yesterday’s announcement that Farid Huseyn and Shahriyar Hajizade, two Azerbaijani journalists and poets who had been detained arbitrarily in Iran for the past four months on spying charges, have finally been released.”We are delighted that Huseyn and Hajizade are finally free as their ordeal had dragged on too long,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The outcome, which has more of the hallmarks of a Cold War prisoner swap than a sober judicial decision, emphasizes the absurdity of the charges brought against them.”We reiterate our call for the immediate release of Anar Bayramli, a correspondent for several Iranian media who is detained in Azerbaijan, and Said Matinpour, a journalist with an Iranian Azeri-language newspaper who is detained in Iran. It is unacceptable that the Azerbaijani and Iranian government use journalists as bargaining chips.” Huseyn and Hajizade are currently in the Azerbaijani consulate in Tabriz, in northern Iran, and are expected to return to Baku in the course of the next two days. After they went missing in Tabriz on 2 May, while on their way back from a news conference in Tehran, the Iranian government took a month and a half to confirm that it had arrested them. They were subsequently charged with spying.Employed by two Iranian government media, Fars News and Sahar TV, Bayramli was arrested in Baku on 17 February and was given a two-year jail sentence on the trumped-up charge of possessing drugs. His sentence was halved last month.Matinpour, who worked for the Azeri-language weekly Yarpagh, was sentenced to eight years in prison on charges of anti-government propaganda and “maintaining relations with foreigners” following his arrest on 11 July 2009.——22.05.2012 – Two Azerbaijani writers missing in IranReporters Without Borders calls on the Iranian authorities to quickly explain what has happened to two young Azerbaijani poets and journalists, Farid Huseyn and Shahriyar Hajizade, who went missing on arriving in Tabriz, in northwestern Iran, on 2 May on their way home from a brief visit to the Iranian capital.According to the editor of the Azerbaijani newspaper 525, Rashad Majid, they were “kidnapped by eight men in civilian dress when their bus arrived in the city”. “We are worried,” Reporters Without Borders said. “The Iranian government must shed light on the situation of Huseyn and Hajizade. We demand to know who has been holding them for the past 20 days and why. “Other journalists are already being held hostage in the diplomatic stand-off between Iran and Azerbaijan and doing the same with Huseyn and Hajizade is out of the question. The two countries must stop making the media pay for their mutual hostility. Such behaviour is unacceptable and incompatible with their international obligations.”Azerbaijani foreign ministry spokesman Elman Abdullayev said at a news conference on 16 May that the two poets were being held by the Iranian security forces. The Iranian authorities had so far failed to provide any information on their whereabouts but had promised to do so within a week, he said. Hajizade’s father said he had received no news of his son since 2 May.Huseyn, 24, covers cultural, social and literary subjects for 525 and another Azerbaijani daily newspaper, Kaspiy. Hajizade, 22, writes much commented articles on the social networks about youth issues and the highly sensitive issue of Iran’s Azeri minority.They went to Tehran at the invitation of Iranian writer Bahran Surgun for the presentation of an Iranian edition of Huseyn’s writings. They entered Iran on 29 April, attended the presentation in Tehran on 1 May, and were arrested on their way back the next day.There is increasing tension between Iran and its neighbour over territorial disputes and geostrategic interests linked to the routing of major oil and gas pipelines. Tehran accuses Baku of manipulating northern Iran’s sizeable Azeri minority, while Baku has been cracking down on pro-Iranian religious sectors in Azerbaijan, accusing them of colluding Tehran.Iran continues to hold the Azeri journalist Said Matinpour while Azerbaijan continues to hold Ramin Bayramov, the editor of the website, and Anar Bayramli, a correspondent for various Iranian media. Ramil Dadashov, a driver for Iran’s Sahar TV who was arrested at the same time as Bayramli, was released on 16 May.

Chu Challenger Runs on Community-Before-Party Platform

County Supervisor Kathryn Barger tried his hand in Hollywood and spent a year acting, but on a plane back to Los Angeles after a trip he began to rethink his career.“I want to say it was a short amount of time that the realm of policy opened itself up to me,” Daly said. “I was selected for the California fellows program. I got a job offer from Assemblyman Steven Bradford — he’s now in the State Senate — and got accepted to Pepperdine school of public policy.”Daly is running against popular Rep. Judy Chu (D-Pasadena) for the 27th congressional district.Daly hopes to break the log jam in DC by remaining nonpartisan and focusing on helping people, instead of engaging in party politics.“Public service should be nonpartisan,” Daly said. “But that’s exactly the situation which our nation is in, and that divide goes down from DC to our dining room tables. Not too long ago we all gathered around the table for Thanksgiving. And I know a topic that was off the table was politics. It shouldn’t be about a party, but it should be about the community.”The local product attended Elliot Middle School in Altadena and graduated from Blair high school when he was just 16.His father is a Latin American immigrant, a disabled U.S. Army veteran of the U.S. Army. His African-American mother was born in the Deep South.Daly did not feel he was ready to attend a university. After Pasadena City College and USC, he decided to pursue his Master at Pepperdine University. By then he had changed his mind about becoming a lawyer which he explained to his dad during his tour of Pepperdine.“It’s kind of like being on the beach, you know, with a bucket and a shovel and you’re moving sand: it’s one case at a time. And every so often you may get a crest again in one of your cases,” Daly said. “But with public policy, you’re on that same beach, moving the same sand but with the bulldozer.”Daly graduated with honors, specialized in state and local policy and international relations.Despite his positive attitude, Daly has an uphill battle.Chu (D-Pasadena) has been a San Gabriel Valley political mainstay since the mid-1980s.In 1985, Chu was elected to the Garvey School District Board of Education. From there, she won a seat on the Monterey Park City Council, where she served as mayor three times.In 2001, Chu entered state politics, winning a seat in the state Assembly in 2001.After terming out of that office, Chu was elected to the State Board of Equalization in 2006.In 2009, the former junior college psychology professor became the first Chinese-American woman elected to Congress when she won the special election that year for the then-32nd Congressional District after then-Congresswoman and now-LA County Supervisor Hilda Solis was appointed Secretary of Labor by President Barack Obama.Since then, Chu has won re-election five times with at least 60 percent of the vote in four of those contests. Three of those victories have come against perennial Republican candidate Jack Orswell.Since 2012, Chu has been representing Pasadena and the West San Gabriel Valley that with redistricting that year became the 27th District.Currently, the 66-year-old lawmaker serves on the powerful House Ways and Means Committee, which has filed a lawsuit to obtain President Trump’s long-sought tax documents. The Ways and Means Committee also has jurisdiction over legislation pertaining to Social Security and Medicare.On that committee, Chu is a member of its subcommittees on Health and Human Resources, Worker and Family Support, and Oversight, giving her responsibility for issues related to health care reform and safety net programs.Daly has his own policies. He’s dedicated himself to combatting the schools to prison pipeline and is interested in economic situations that have forced young families to leave Pasadena.“I respect Judy and I am grateful for her and her service, but it’s not about what you are facing, but rather what you are working towards and for,” Daly said.

Foreclosures Rise in January; Decline Yearly

first_img Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago About Author: Colin Robins Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago RealtyTrac released its U.S. Foreclosure Market Report for January, 2014. The report noted an 8 percent increase of reported properties from the previous month, citing 124,419 properties in foreclosure filings (default notices, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions). Year-to-year, January, 2014 represented an 18 percent drop from January, 2013.1 out of 1,058 U.S. housing units had a foreclosure filing during the month.The 8 percent increase was the biggest month-to-month increase since May, 2012.January also marked a consecutive streak of 40 months of decline in foreclosure activity by year; however, the decline of 18 percent was the smallest decline since September, 2012.“The monthly increase in January foreclosure activity was somewhat expected after a holiday lull, but the sharp annual increases in some states shows that many states are not completely out of the woods when it comes to cleaning up the wreckage of the housing bust,” said Daren Blomquist, VP at RealtyTrac. “The foreclosure rebound pattern is not only showing up in judicial states like New Jersey, where foreclosure activity reached a 40-month high in January, but also some non-judicial states like California, where foreclosure starts jumped 57 percent from a year ago, following 17 consecutive months of annual decreases.”Foreclosure auctions increased 13 percent in January from the previous month, but were still down 8 percent from a year ago. Bank repossessions (REO) were down 4 percent from December, 2013.REO properties were down 40 percent from January, 2013, and the figure represents the lowest level since July 2007—a 78-month low.Counter to the national trend, January foreclosure starts increased from a year ago in 22 states.States with the highest foreclosure rates in January were Florida, Nevada, Maryland, Illinois, and New Jersey.Among the nation’s 20 most populated metropolitan statistical areas, the highest foreclosure rates were in Miami, Tampa, Chicago, Baltimore, and Riverside-San Bernardino in Southern California.

2017’s Hottest Neighborhoods for Homebuyers

first_img Related Articles  Print This Post There are a number of factors potential homebuyers consider when trying to find the perfect neighborhood for themselves and their family such as being near downtown or being close to a job that allows for high growth according to Redfin’s prediction of the hottest neighborhoods to close out 2017.To determine where buyers are looking the most, Redfin analyzed the page views on, plus what houses were favorited by users. Redfin found that consumers looked for the aforementioned characteristics as well as access to public transit, trendy shopping and dining options, and neighborhoods where homes are quickly gaining value. Redfin real estate agents gave more insight as to where these areas are and why they’re so popular—starting with number one neighborhood First Hill in Seattle Washington.”First Hill is sandwiched between the ever-popular Capitol Hill and the Yesler Terrace redevelopment, with easy access to downtown,” said Seattle Redfin Agent Jessie Culbert. “With Whole Foods opening in 2018 at the Danforth apartment building, the area is becoming even more desirable. Buyers tend to like the more quiet, tree-lined streets in this neighborhood and historic mansions that hearken back to Seattle’s heritage. All we need is more inventory; resales at Luma condos, which sold out in 2016, have been brisk, signaling high demand for new construction.”The median sales price in First Hill is $425,000 with an average sale-to-list price of 105.4 percent and the percenage of homes that sold above listing price coming in at 73 percent. The list provides performance reviews of the 10 neighborhoods Redfin previously predicted would be hot in 2017 and an updated list of the 10 neighborhoods that have been this years hottest so far.”Bushrod, the Oakland neighborhood we said in January would be hot this year, lived up to its hype with off-market home values up 9 percent so far this year, compared with 5 percent growth in the surrounding area,” said Redfin Chief Economist Nela Richardson. “Our analysis also brought to our attention several hot neighborhoods that weren’t on our radar in January, like East Lake Terrace in Atlanta and Gert Town in New Orleans, both of which posted home-value gains that were much stronger than their respective metro areas.”To see the full report, click here. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Share Save About Author: Brianna Gilpin August 21, 2017 1,317 Views Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Tagged with: Hottest Neighborhoods 2017’s Hottest Neighborhoods for Homebuyers Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days agocenter_img Hottest Neighborhoods 2017-08-21 Brianna Gilpin Home / Daily Dose / 2017’s Hottest Neighborhoods for Homebuyers Brianna Gilpin, Online Editor for MReport and DS News, is a graduate of Texas A&M University where she received her B.A. in Telecommunication Media Studies.
