Why Investors are Buying into Single-Family Rental

first_img Single-family rents increased 3% year over year in August 2019, according to the latest CoreLogic Single-Family Rent Index (SFRI). Low-end rentals, with rents 75% or less of a region’s median rent, made up a large chunk of August’s growth, as rents on lower-priced rental homes increased 3.7% year over year and rents for higher-priced homes, defined as properties with rents more than 125% of the regional median rent, increased 2.7% year over year.In an interview with DS News, CoreLogic Principal Economist Molly Boesel discussed how the increase in single-family rentals has impacted the housing market as a whole, and why many potential homeowners are turning to rentals.“Some of the demand has come from households displaced by foreclosure and some has come from millennial households who are looking for a single-family home but are not ready to buy,” Boesel said. “Just as the market has a low supply of for-sale housing, some markets also have a low supply of for-rent housing, which has driven rents up.”According to a post on the NAHB’s Best in American Living blog, renting by choice–instead of owning outright–is becoming increasingly popular among millennials.The blog said that this was where newly constructed built for-rent single-family homes came into the picture. These homes, according to the blog, present millennials “with a terrific opportunity to live the American dream–without the additional responsibilities and stress of homeownership.”According to realtor.com, investors are using the popularity of single-family rental to their advantage. Real estate investors purchased 7.7% of all homes in the second quarter of 2019, up 0.6% year-over-year, the most speculation the market has seen 2013. St. Louis is considered the most appealing destination for both flippers and landlords, with 18.8% of sales as investment properties. “Twenty years ago, [real estate investors] were all locals,” says St. Louis broker and landlord Dennis Norman of MORE Realtors. Now, “we have a lot of investors from California, from Colorado, and even international investors.” Home / Daily Dose / Why Investors are Buying into Single-Family Rental Share Save in Daily Dose, Featured, News October 15, 2019 1,341 Views About Author: Seth Welborn Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Why Investors are Buying into Single-Family Rental Tagged with: Investment Rent SFR Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Seth Welborn is a Reporter for DS News and MReport.

Reagents shortage yet another test of accuracy for Indonesia’s COVID-19 data

first_imgRead also: COVID-19: Indonesia on hunt for PCR testing kitsDisease control and prevention director general Achmad Yurianto of the Health Ministry acknowledged that the shortage of regents had forced a number of laboratories to halt testing, leaving only 37 out of 78 labs able to submit test results on Tuesday. However, he assured that a new supply of reagents enough to support up to 15,000 tests was en route to the archipelago.”The stock was sent from South Korea this morning,” Yurianto told The Jakarta Post on Thursday.Indonesia has been scrambling to obtain the chemical reagents necessary for the COVID-19 PCR tests amid the global shortage, with the government seeking to procure them from countries that have a surplus of testing kits.President Joko Widodo has called for health authorities to expand PCR testing to at least 10,000 tests per day – or 300,000 tests per month – amid criticisms that the country has one of the lowest testing rates in the world.According to government data, Indonesia has tested 59,936 samples for the COVID-19 virus by Thursday, with 7,775 samples testing positive for the coronavirus. Of these confirmed cases, 635 patients have died.The government has estimated that Indonesia would need to conduct 1.2 million tests by May.However, many observers – including state officials – have cast doubt on the government’s COVID-19 figures, saying that minimal test coverage, multiple case categories and “nontransparent” data pointed to a high likelihood that the real number of cases in the country could be higher than official reports.Despite the shortage of reagents and the country’s dependence on imports to overcome this, Yurianto did not believe it would be efficient to produce the chemicals locally.“We are running against time and producing the reagents ourselves would take time and [a long] process,” he said.The director of the Eijkman Institute for Molecular Biology, Amin Soebandrio, explained that the reagents required a specific level of refinement and needed to be validated for use in the COVID-19 PCR tests.Nonetheless, he said that the Agency for the Assessment and Application of Technology (BPPT) and the Indonesian Institute of Sciences (LIPI) were currently attempting to produce the PCR test reagents.“Hopefully, within 2 to 3 weeks, locally made reagents will be able to contribute [to nationwide PCR tests] a little, even though they may not be able to supply nationwide laboratories,” he told the Post.However, Eijkman’s deputy for fundamental research, Herawati Sudoyo, warned that developing the reagents for the COVID-19 tests had to be done carefully to meet high quality assurance standards.Read also: COVID-19: More than 380 foreigners among infected in IndonesiaWhen asked about the possibility of alternative tests to detect the coronavirus, Herawati maintained that the PCR testing method was currently the “gold standard” for COVID-19 detection.“The reagents shortage is not happening just in Indonesia. It’s happening around the world because no one was prepared for the pandemic. But PCR [testing] remains the best option,” she said.In the meantime, Eijkman has secured a sufficient stock of reagents for the next two to three weeks, and its lab was still testing more than 300 samples per day.In Surabaya, East Java, the University of Airlangga Institute of Tropical Disease (ITD Unair) initially reported on Monday that it had run out of reagents and that the supply it had ordered on March 24 had yet to arrive.On Thursday, ITD Unair head Maria Lucia Inge Lusida told the Post that the center had resumed testing received enough reagents from the Office of the Coordinating Maritime Affairs and Investment Minister to test 1,400 samples.In the nation’s capital, Jakarta Health Laboratory head Endra Muryanto said that the regional lab, which had already tested 10,160 samples so far, had secured enough reagents to continue testing for the next few days.While the West Java Health Laboratory said it had also secured a new supply of reagents, it expressed concern over the general availability of reagents.“Extraction reagents are hard to obtain, and we are worried that we might have to stop testing because of a delay in the arrival of the [imported] reagents,” said laboratory head Ema Rahmawati.Topics : A shortage of reagents is interfering with the government’s efforts to ramp up much-needed mass testing for the coronavirus, posing another challenge for Indonesia regarding the true scale of its outbreak.Over the past two days, a number of the country’s laboratories have temporarily stopped running polymerase chain reaction (PCR) tests because the supply of reagents – the substance essential to testing swab samples – had yet to arrive from abroad.In South Sumatra, for instance, the Palembang Health Laboratory (BBLK) had to stop testing samples due to the lack of reagents. The halt on testing caused the province to record zero new cases of COVID-19 on Monday and Tuesday, kompas.com reported.The reagents are necessary to isolate the indicators for the coronavirus RNA from human DNA in swab samples to determine whether the test subject had the virus or not.last_img read more

Making family a priority for Iowa’s foster kids

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa – On any given day in Iowa, about 6,000 children are in foster care, but the number placed with families instead of in group or institutional settings is on the rise.A new report looks at data from the child-welfare system over a 10-year period to see how placements for young people in foster care have changed. The report says nationwide, care systems placed 86% of foster children in families in 2017, compared with 81% in 2007.Ann Discher, executive director for the Child and Family Policy Center, says the rate in Iowa was even better, with 88% placed in 2017, up 10 percentage points from 10 years earlier – but the picture isn’t as bright for older kids.“For teenagers, progress has actually been a lot slower, moving kids out of group settings and into family settings,” says Discher. “And that’s really a big deal, because actually, older children are far more likely to be placed in group or institutional settings than younger children.”The report was released by the Annie E. Casey Foundation as part of its KIDS COUNT project.Rob Geen, director of policy and advocacy reform with the Casey Foundation, says persistent racial disparities also showed up in the data, and states need to address them.“While I’m talking about a 10-year trend to show a fairly significant increase in placing kids in families, we’re seeing much greater gains for white children than we are for African-American Children,” says Geen. “So, there’s more that we can do for African-American children that we need to work on.”Discher says the research shows that any child removed from a home by the state does better when they’re placed in a family setting than in a group or institutional setting.“Kids who are with families, they tend to do better in school, they are much less likely to have an early pregnancy, they are much less likely to run away,” says Discher. “They’re far more likely to stay in school and graduate from high school or get a GED.”She’s also pleased about a new federal law, the Family First Prevention Services Act, signed into law last year. She says it shifts funding away from group placement and requires that the child-welfare system find families more quickly for teens and young people of color.last_img read more

IRELAND’S MOST SPECTACULAR DARKNESS INTO LIGHT 5K SET FOR ARRANMORE

first_imgArranmore Island is hosting it’s first ever Darkness Into Light 5k walk/run this year on May 7.All proceeds go to Pieta House which is a prevention centre for self harm and suicide.There are 110 venues around the country – but Arranmore is set to have the most spectacular setting. “There were posters about another place hosting darkness into light on the island last year. It occurred to me why shouldn’t we have our own 5k? I made sure we were going to have one the following year (this year),” said organiser Denis O’Donnell.“Now we have a strong committee and support from the community to go ahead and have a great event. Thankfully suicide hasn’t been a problem on the island. But mental health issues are common. That’s where it all can start if the right help isn’t sought.“I think most people would know someone with a mental health problem. There has been a big stigma about mental health. But all that is changing due to Pieta House and the Darkness Into Light event. It’s a great way to get people talking and doing something positive for a worthy cause.”Online registration for the event has started today. We will also be having registration on the island up to the event. People from the mainland who want to attend can register online. Soon participants can register at both booking offices for the red and blue Arranmore Ferries. Ferries will be coming into the island on the morning in time for the 5k and returning back out afterwards.Said Denis: “Weather can’t be guaranteed in this country But if the weather is good Arranmore could be the most beautiful scenic route anywhere!”Register here:http://dil.pieta.ie/venues/venue-view/darkness-into-light-arranmore-islandFollow us on Facebook and twitterhttps://www.facebook.com/darknessintolightarainnmhor/ https://twitter.com/DILArainnMhorIRELAND’S MOST SPECTACULAR DARKNESS INTO LIGHT 5K SET FOR ARRANMORE was last modified: March 7th, 2016 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:5karranmoreDarkness into Lightlast_img read more
