The company recorded a 650% uptick in investment activity since mid-March 2020 for SFR/BFR portfolios on their technology platform, SFRhub.com, averaging 10,000+ listed homes, Yahoo Finance reports.”Investors have reaped financial advantages of a 10-year bullish marketplace, notably the past few years with SFR portfolios, and the newer BFR market,” said Jeff Cline, Executive Director and Principal of SVN | SFRhub Advisors. “For the first time in U.S. history, rental household growth outpaced U.S. homeownership.”He added “Looking ahead, consumer economic, lifestyle, and work-at-home popularity indicate global investors’ near and long-term outlook for capital growth and income opportunities in single-family detached homes for rent is better than it’s been for several years.”According to SVN | SFRhub, demand from millennials and older adults/retirees has destigmatized renting and touted SFRs’ benefits like increased space, yards and amenities representative of living in a single-family detached home. Skyrocketing unemployment, job uncertainty, and hefty student debt loans imply the SFR/BFR market should remain strong among millennials as home ownership moves farther out in time and remote working becomes more popular.Cline notes, “SFR/BFR investors’ main concerns are rent revenue and occupancy. In the short-term, unemployment may impact rent rather than occupancy issues. As the economy recovers, demand for SFR/BFR will be a favorite among alternative investors with capital on the sidelines seeking refuge and stock market diversification for growth and income.”U.S homebuilders may turn to REITs, private equity firms and individual investors to purchase completed or near completed single-family communities for rental investment if the new home buyer market continues to retract.”For the first time, we now have several private capital group clients with tens of billions of dollars to specifically invest in the BFR space,” said Michael Finch, EVP of SVN | SFRhub Advisors.  Print This Post Previous: The Industry Pulse: Keeping Servicers Updated Next: Wells Fargo Nears $18.5M Foreclosure Settlement Sign up for DS News Daily Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days agolast_img read more

Case round-up

first_imgThis week’s legal case round-upFinding new employment Tibbett & Britten UK Ltd v Burke, EAT, 27 November 2002, All ER (D)130 Employers can take some comfort from the employment appeal tribunal’s (EAT)approach to assessing compensation for unfair dismissal in this case. Burke, 57, resigned from his job with Tibbett & Britten and successfullyclaimed constructive dismissal. Since leaving his job, Burke had found newemployment via an agency, but it paid less. In calculating his ongoing loss, the tribunal concluded that Burke wouldhave remained in Tibbett & Britten’s employment until retirement at the ageof 65, and took account of the difference in pay between his former and currentemployment in awarding £54,836 compensation. Tibbett & Britten successfullyappealed to the EAT. The EAT held there had to be a finding, and an allowance, if appropriate, inrespect of whether Burke, having found relatively less well paid employment,would have been able to secure a better job on more favourable terms at somestage in the future, notwithstanding his age. Furthermore, the tribunal hadbeen wrong in making no discount for accelerated payment – it failed to takeaccount of the fact that Burke would have received future years’ salary as alump sum payment up front. Restricting employees in the future Arbuthnot Fund Managers Ltd v Nigel Rawlings, CA, 13 March 2003, All ER(D) 181 – This case should serve as a reminder to employers to check thatrestrictive covenants in employees’ contracts are appropriately drafted.Rawlings was employed as an executive director by a company engaged in fundmanagement and investment for private clients, trusts and charities. After Rawlings left his employment, the company issued proceedings seekingto enforce the restrictive covenants in his service agreement which preventedhim from: – Soliciting or dealing with any person, firm or company who had, within the12 months prior to termination, done business with the company – Soliciting or dealing with anybody who was a prospective client of thecompany in the six months prior to termination An interim injunction was granted which restrained Rawlings from acting inbreach of the restrictive covenants until the matter could be heard at a fulltrial. Rawlings appealed on the grounds that the restraint terms were too wide andhis appeal was successful in part. The Court of Appeal held that the terms ofthe restraint clauses in the service agreement (as reflected in the interiminjunction), were too wide. In particular, the use of the words “any person, firm or company”could be interpreted as meaning any person who was a client or prospectiveclient of the company. It could not have been intended to include all personswith whom the company had or was to have dealings, rather only those personswho were investment clients. The interim injunction was amended to restrain Rawlings from soliciting ordealing with any client who had carried out investment business with thecompany at any time during the 12 months leading up to termination.

Using satellite thermal infrared imagery to study boundary layer structure in an Antarctic katabatic wind region

first_imgWe use snow surface temperatures obtained from thermal infrared (TIR) satellite imagery, together with radiosonde profiles of free-air temperature and high-resolution topographic data to study the thermal structure of the atmospheric boundary layer in a coastal region ofEast Antarctica. Surface temperatures over a coastal ice shelf are shown to be significantly lower than those observed on the lower part of the adjoining coastal slopes as a result of the strong surface temperature inversion that forms over the ice shelf. Between 400 and 1500 m elevation the surface temperature lapse rate is close to the dry adiabatic value while the free-air temperature profile is significantly stable over this height range. We argue that this implies that the strength of the surface inversion increases with increasing elevation. Above 1500 m the surface temperature lapse rate becomes significantly superadiabatic and the coldest surface temperatures are found a few 10s of kilometres inland of the highest topography. The technique may prove useful for studying boundary layer structure in other regions of Antarctica where suitable high-resolution topographic data are available.last_img read more

Introducing Dell EMC VDI Complete Solutions

first_imgAn easier way to buy and support VDIThere was a time, not so long ago, when moving from traditional PCs to a virtual desktop infrastructure solution was really challenging. You need tight compatibility between compute, storage, networking, hypervisor, connection broker, protocol, application or OS delivery, user personalization and endpoints – all to ensure the best end-user experience, the key to a successful VDI deployment. It isn’t uncommon for a traditional VDI implementation of 100 applications and 1,000 users to take 250 days or more and the final cost was often unpredictable. Then after all that, if something goes wrong and you call for support, vendor finger-pointing abounds or the project is outright cancelled.Dell, is making it easier to buy, implement and support VDI with Dell EMC VDI Complete Solutions, a unique, end-to-end client virtualization solution than with one number for purchase, and for the first time, one for support. These solutions are made up of a combination of these industry-leading components:Hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI) using Dell EMC VxRail or vSAN ReadyNodes (RN) on Dell EMC PowerEdge serversvSAN ReadyNodes are built for rapid deployment and building block scalabilityVxRail is built for turnkey deployment, cluster flexibility and streamlined management ExpandedFocused on higher performance use cases including persistent desktops, rich, virtualized graphic capabilities, power users or larger implementationsConfigured for approximately 800 task users, and based on a four-node clusterNVIDIA GRID M10 and M60 virtualized graphics (vGPU) are available on the Expanded options, ensuring high performance end user experiences VMware vSphere and Horizon softwareDell endpoints: Wyse thin clients or OptiPlex micro PCsFlexible consumption models with payment solutions by Dell Financial Services (DFS)**The solution is highly customizable with three levels to meet a variety of needs.  While these configurations are offered as a standard, our Dell experts can help determine the exact requirements to achieve your business goals.
