Clare. Missy Gray specialise in both commercial projects and offer a fresh and innovative approach to interior design.

Among those rental investors, 62% said that they have rented back to current occupants of occupied homes.”Most of the investors who responded to Auction’s survey were small-scale—87% had purchased five or fewer investment homes in 2020. The majority, 78%, purchased properties that were within their own metro. Of the renter-occupied properties that went into foreclosure, 62% bought at auction were re-rented to the existing occupants.“A transparent and democratized distressed-property marketplace attracts a diverse set of mostly local real estate investors who are committed to doing good in the communities where they invest,” said Jason Allnutt, Auction.com CEO. “Not surprisingly, these local buyers are the best option for responsibly returning distressed properties to retail buyers and renters. Sixty-two percent of our buyers report they have successfully avoided an eviction by keeping the occupants in the homes as renters.”Auction reports 40% of the respondents said they believe their local market is overvalued with a correction possible, but 74% think home prices will continue to rise by at least 3% in 2021.Almost all, 93%, buyers expect their 2021 acquisitions to increase or remain the same compared to their 2020 acquisitions. Creating that new source of income and building wealth ranked as the top investing motivations for most buyers, Auction reported, but a combined 13% of buyers said “improving homes and neighborhoods or investing back into the community” was their top motivation for investing. in Daily Dose, Featured, Market Studies, News Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago About Author: Christina Hughes Babb Previous: Brian Montgomery & Colleagues Launch Gate House Strategies Next: The Sky’s the Limit With SFR Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago Sign up for DS News Daily Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago
(REUTERS) – Former seamer Darren Gough has been appointed as England’s fast bowling consultant for the warm-up period leading into November’s two-test tour of New Zealand, the country’s cricket board (ECB) said on Wednesday.Gough claimed 229 wickets in 58 Tests for England between 1994 and 2003.“I’m delighted to have Darren on board,” England head coach Chris Silverwood said in a statement.“I have known him a long time and his vast knowledge and experience at international level will drive our bowling unit forward leading into the two-match test series. He will be excellent around the group and will settle in quickly.”England are without a bowling coach after Silverwood was promoted to head coach’s role earlier this month.Gough, a former Yorkshire team mate of Silverwood, will join the test squad in Auckland on Nov. 5 and will work with the pace attack for two weeks before the first test in Mount Maunganui which begins on Nov. 21.“It is a tremendous honour to be asked by Chris Silverwood and Ashley Giles to be involved in this elite environment,” Gough said.“I will gain a lot from the experience and to work at this level will benefit me as a coach for the long-term.”
