We’re going to be taking a look at some nice markets throughout the nation that simply occur to be aligned with a crew that’s taking part within the basketball event. Becoming a member of me immediately as standard are Henry, Kathy and James. James, I do know you’re using fairly excessive off of UD DO’S soccer efficiency this yr. Are you additionally a university basketball fan?

James:

I do watch some school basketball, however time constrains me to soccer. Solely

Dave :

You’re that keen about soccer which you can’t waste any time.

James:

I can’t waste time and I bought to choose one. I’m not the man that watches each sport, however I do love some March Insanity. Who doesn’t?

Dave :

Oh, it’s so enjoyable. Nicely, Kathy, I might ask you when you’re a university basketball fan, however final time we had a sports activities present, you wore a jersey of a crew that wasn’t even within the competitors. So I’m guessing it’s comparable with school basketball.

Kathy :

I bought the colours proper. Yeah, no, no, probably not. In school I believe I might’ve been into it.

Dave :

Nicely Henry, I used to be going to ask you when you like school basketball, however we’re taking an excessive amount of time, so that you simply bought to provide me one phrase reply. Are you into it, sure or no? I’m into it in March, sure. Okay, nice. Completely happy to have you ever on board. Alright, so for immediately’s present what we’re going to be doing is we truly researched all 68 markets which are taking part and every one in all us went and picked two markets that we like essentially the most. So though this present is type of extensively about basketball, we actually are speaking about actual property investing markets that we every actually like and we’re going to undergo and make a case for why we decide the markets that we did after which our beloved listeners can go and truly vote on which markets you assume ought to make it to our personal inner last 4.

Dave :

After which we’re truly going to choose a winner. So when you hearken to the present on the day that it comes out, which we hope you do, make certain to go to the BiggerPockets Instagram account the place you’re going to have the ability to vote on one of many eight markets that James, Kathy, Henry and I suggest. And in our analysis of those 68 markets, a number of the issues that we talked about and a number of the issues we researched are issues we speak about on a regular basis on the present like constructive inhabitants progress, decrease unemployment charges, lease, progress, affordability, worth progress. So these are the type of issues, the standards that every of us checked out. And we are able to inform you as we pitch every of our markets why we selected the mix of metrics and market traits that we did. As a result of clearly not each market goes to be excellent throughout all these totally different metrics and it’s as much as every particular person investor to type of select the appropriate steadiness of information and metrics which are proper for that. So with that, let’s get into our market insanity rundown.

Dave :

So first up is me. I chosen Lansing, Michigan, which is after all dwelling to Michigan State, which I don’t know a lot about school sports activities, however it’s undoubtedly a kind of universities that’s good at each single sport. So good for them. I like Lansing one as a result of once I googled it yesterday I came upon it’s dwelling to the world’s largest hairball. I don’t find out about you guys. I all the time simply Google what the weirdest factor about each market I take a look at is as a result of I all the time am simply curious. World’s largest what hairball. It was taken out of a cow’s abdomen. I came upon I went down a rabbit gap with this yesterday. Anyway, I actually like this as a result of I believe normally individuals after they’re in search of markets, take a look at a whole lot of state degree knowledge that may be deceiving. You take a look at a state like Michigan the place Lansing is and it’s dropping inhabitants and that’s clearly not factor, however so is a state like Ohio, however inside these states there are literally markets the place a whole lot of the individuals in that state actually wish to reside.

Dave :

And what attracts a whole lot of younger individuals, it attracts a whole lot of jobs, it attracts a whole lot of authorities funding and if that’s typically true of southern Michigan the place Lansing is, and so that you see that they really have a rising inhabitants there. It’s not rising like loopy, however it’s constructive progress. It has a really low unemployment price, effectively under the nationwide common, and it’s truly a much bigger metropolis than I assumed it was going to be. The metro space is 540,000 individuals as a result of Michigan State is large and it’s truly the seat of the federal government in Michigan, which if you realize something about that results in actually secure employment. There’s a whole lot of jobs which are actually not tied to the enterprise cycle even throughout recessions. These jobs are likely to do fairly effectively. After which lastly, and maybe most significantly why I like Lansing is due to affordability.

Dave :

If you happen to hearken to the present, I speak about this on a regular basis, however my huge speculation for the subsequent few years is markets which are inexpensive are in all probability going to outperform those which are tremendous costly by way of lease progress, by way of, I don’t know essentially by way of appreciation, however I do assume by way of lease progress and Lansing tremendous inexpensive. The median dwelling worth is nearly $210,000, which is about half of what it’s for the remainder of the nation. In order that’s the place I picked Lansing and also you guys been there, know something about it.

James:

I can say I’ve by no means been to Lansing and it isn’t on my agenda to go there,

Dave :

However I can inform you this one just isn’t going to win the voting. I do know that it’s not a horny market. I do know nobody’s going to choose this, however I just like the Midwest. I’m lengthy on the Midwest and I just like the cashflow alternative.

James:

It will depend on what you wish to do as an investor and I believe it is a nice cashflow market. I imply, you’ve bought a very low median dwelling worth. You’re seeing good lease progress, 5 and a half %. It’s supplying you with good metrics right through to get simply regular, regular cashflow. And I believe if you’re a extra passive investor that desires to construct out a portfolio and a gradual progress, it’s in all probability an awesome market. My solely factor is I’m an appreciation junkie and I like getting mass fairness positions and 209,000, if it goes up 10%, it’s going to be just a little bit much less progress in that market. However if you need that regular money circulate might be one thing you need to take a look at.

Dave :

Alright, effectively let’s transfer on to our second market. Henry, what’d you decide?

Henry :

Sure, I’ve bought Oklahoma Metropolis coming in right here and I picked Oklahoma Metropolis. I’m, effectively, let’s be actual. I’m solely positioned about three hours from Oklahoma Metropolis. So just a little little bit of a self-indulgence right here as a result of if I’m going to analysis a market, why not analysis one which I may truly spend money on? So what I like about Oklahoma Metropolis is it provides you, it’s like an unsexy market, however in just a little little bit of a horny approach since you get a giant metropolis. So that you get huge metropolis facilities, you have got huge metropolis sort jobs, however you get the worth factors of Midwest. So median dwelling worth is 226,000, however you’ve bought a median lease of 1300, you’ve bought lease progress of three.98%. So it’s bought nice metrics and it’s bought an awesome economic system. If you happen to take a look at the economic system of Oklahoma Metropolis, you’ve bought an awesome combination of the kind of jobs that aren’t going anyplace.

Henry :

Authorities jobs, army jobs, clearly increased schooling, healthcare, warehouse retail and restaurant area in addition to aerospace and telecommunication. So if you consider firms like Integris Healthcare, Amazon is there, pastime Foyer’s there, mercy Hospital system, Sonic Meals, there’s only a plethora of jobs and that’s all the time going to be good for individuals who wish to transfer to that space in the event that they’ve bought work in industries that aren’t going anyplace. And inhabitants progress. I like markets like this since you get the security web of a bigger metropolis, however you get the worth factors of a smaller metropolis and so you will get cashflow, however as a result of it’s a bigger metropolis, you too can get just a little little bit of appreciation. So I believe these little area of interest markets the place they’re within the Midwest in or round a giant metropolis, you’ll be able to sort of get the very best of each worlds. You’re not going to get wonderful appreciation like in a Seattle, however you’ll get some good appreciation as a result of it’s a bigger metropolis that’s rising economically yr over yr.

Dave :

I’m a giant fan of Oklahoma Metropolis. It is a good selection.

Kathy :

I’m a thumbs up. I like Oklahoma Metropolis for cashflow. The expansion appreciation’s not there. So I’m curious what James has to say about it. It

James:

Was simply boring. I dunno, I’m a cross. I’m not a Midwest man in opposition to Midwest. I do know buyers prefer it and I believe it’s an awesome place to go in, however laborious cross, too boring, too flat.

Dave :

I like it. I really like that you simply don’t like it. I type

Henry :

Of need boring in my long-term funding technique. Similar.

Dave :

Yeah, I’m with you. Nicely James, what’s extra thrilling to you? What did you decide?

James:

Tampa, Florida. Who doesn’t wish to take a look at the white seashores in Tampa, Florida?

Dave :

Wait, what school is there?

James:

College of Southern Florida, it’s rocky. The bowl, Dave, it’s trying mascot. It seems like he does basketball champs and he is also dressed up like a Snuggie that my children can be sporting to mattress, however regardless previous the mascot and go USF Tampa. The explanation I picked Tampa is I’m a yard investor. I prefer to reside the place I’m going to take a position and Tampa is on the highest of my checklist of the place I may reside. It’s bought stunning seashores, it’s bought stunning individuals. It’s rising quickly and Tampa’s been remodeling lots during the last 5 years. The unemployment price’s at 3.1% inhabitants has been rising quickly. Everybody needs to maneuver to Florida even with out elevating insurance coverage prices. We’re nonetheless seeing the inhabitants develop. It was regular final yr at 2.21%, however my favourite factor about this market is it appreciates quickly. I like to get the juice out of the deal. 2024 Tampa dwelling costs had been up 11.8% and the median dwelling worth is at 370,000. And for this reason I like this higher than the Midwest market. When your median dwelling worth is greater, you get extra juice out of the runway, 10% on 370,000 is lots higher than a $200,000 median dwelling worth. And so it creates these fairness positions which you can commerce later, however it’s only a excellent spot to reside. Seashores progress and the populations preserve dumping in and I believe when you’re rising that a lot, it has all of the runway on the earth.

Kathy :

Oh yeah, huge fan, huge fan of Tampa. Despite the fact that they might not win their basketball, they’re profitable. With regards to funding, so far as I’m involved, it’s nice appreciation. We’ve been closely invested there. We’ve a giant improvement north of Tampa that’s performed rather well and it’s not slowing down. It’s not slowing down in any respect. When individuals ask me the place to take a position, I’m like, undoubtedly look within the space of Tampa.

Dave :

Yeah, it’s an awesome market. Looks like a very perfect place. So simply selecting the simple ones, James, so that you don’t wish to problem your self in any respect and check out one thing just a little bit totally different.

Henry :

I believe what I like about this market although is the median dwelling worth is fairly good for a Florida marketplace for a significant metro and Florida plus your median lease is fairly strong as effectively. So I give James A. Little little bit of credit score right here. It’s a enjoyable metropolis with good metrics. It’s not pretty much as good of a cashflow market as Oklahoma Metropolis, however I imply all of us can’t be

James:

Winners. The cool factor about markets like Tampa is that they’re actually broad, they’re actually huge. And so the costly markets the place you are able to do increased finish flips, you’ll be able to go just a little bit extra inexpensive product and it’s a really versatile market and I like markets like that. You possibly can put two totally different methods in line on the identical time. You possibly can chase cashflow and get appreciation and make excessive returns. I like steadiness. I just like the try at having the ability to get huge hits.

Dave :

We hit our first three Market Insanity markets. Woo, that’s a mouthful, however we do nonetheless have 5 extra, so stick round after this break. Welcome again to on the Markets Market Insanity shift. All proper, effectively Kathy, did you are taking identical method or did you do one thing just a little extra off the crushed path?

Kathy :

My market is one which I do know rather well as a result of we’ve been investing there and we’ve been selling it at Actual Wealth for years. So many individuals have constructed the retirement plans on this metropolis and it’s Cincinnati now earlier than you hate on it as a result of it’s within the Midwest. So there hasn’t sometimes been appreciation over the previous few years. There actually has been. It’s normally a cashflow market, however it simply took off over the previous few years, not this previous yr a lot, however unemployment is at a low 2.9%, so wonderful. There’s some fairly huge employers there together with Kroger’s and Proctor and Gamble, and naturally the College of Cincinnati employs 15,000 individuals. So a giant college, a younger city inhabitants 2.2 million. And that meets my metrics. I wish to be in a metropolis that has greater than 1,000,000 individuals in it’s that provides me a bigger pool of renters.

Kathy :

So I like that the expansion is 0.3 within the space. So not large however not horrible. Median earnings, sort of excessive 75,000 lease progress, whopping 6%. You guys, that’s fairly good. There’s simply not sufficient provide for demand. And the standard rental is round 1400 to 1500 per thirty days. Typical dwelling worth round 2 50, 2 60 per thirty days, 260,000. Nonetheless, if I had been to take a position, I in all probability wouldn’t spend money on town. We take a look at the suburbs as a result of you will get half that, you will get a a lot decrease median dwelling worth and nonetheless get fairly good rents. So investing proper within the metropolis, it’s not going to cashflow as effectively. And that’s not as thrilling within the Midwest, you’re in all probability not going to see progress, however proper within the suburbs I might focus there. So I don’t know if that’s dishonest, however that will be my technique there. What do you guys assume?

Dave :

I truly appeared, I spent a while trying into Cincinnati and was contemplating it a few months in the past and I handed, so I’m going to cross on the present too.

Henry :

So I truly researched a number of markets in Ohio earlier than, however principally round Cleveland. Nevertheless it seems just like the numbers are fairly first rate right here in Cincinnati as effectively as a result of when you’ve bought a median dwelling worth of two 50 and also you’re bringing in 14 to $1,500 of lease each month, I imply that’s proper off the MLS, that’s not too unhealthy. If you will get an honest deal and sort of get under that, I believe you’ll be able to in all probability get some strong cashflow and when you’re getting extra appreciation now that’s not too unhealthy, not too unhealthy.

Kathy :

It’s purchase and maintain market. However now we’ve bought James not trying on the purchase and maintain and never taking a look at boring.

James:

I do purchase and maintain, however I like these huge fairness positive aspects. Actually, this market, it’s simply not for me. It’s too boring. If I’m going to spend money on cashflow, I’m going to go together with an space that’s getting just a little bit extra inhabitants progress and just a little bit extra with sizzle behind it. It’s not for me, nothing in opposition to anyone who needs to take a position there. If that’s your prerogative, it’s in all probability an awesome plan, not for me. And that appreciation juice. Hey,

Kathy :

If anybody’s from Cincinnati listening to this, I counsel you invite us out, we’ll go go to and also you present us that it’s not boring. How’s that?

James:

I do just like the Bengals. Alright, I’ll throw that on the market.

Dave :

We should always simply try this. We should always simply go on a tour to spend money on essentially the most enjoyable metropolis. We’ll see the place we’ve got essentially the most enjoyable. We’ll go to 10 cities,

Henry :

Purchase a home

Dave :

There wherever we’ve got the very best time, we are going to purchase a home.

James:

It’s going to be Charleston.

Dave :

Alright, effectively we’re going into spherical two now and I’ll kick it off. And when you guys can’t inform, I’ve simply picked markets which are obscure and possibly individuals have by no means heard of. And I’m going to do this for my second one too, which is New Haven, Connecticut. And I selected this as a result of persons are all the time saying which you can’t spend money on the Northeast and that’s simply patently not true. And New Haven is an effective instance. It’s the dwelling of Yale College and it’s in between the place my mother and father reside and my sisters reside. So I’m going by way of New Haven lots and I’ve to inform you it has phenomenal pizza. And as somebody from New York, it’s laborious for me to confess that pizza could be actually good outdoors of New York. However New Haven, Frank Pepe’s, trendy of pizza, superb locations the place you need to take a look at when you’re ever round there.

Dave :

However again to actual property, the factor I like about New Haven is that it’s nonetheless a comparatively inexpensive market within the Northeast. So a whole lot of markets within the Northeast Media dwelling worth or six, seven, 800,000 in New Haven, it’s 343,000 and the appreciation is simply dunking on each different market on this checklist proper now with 11% appreciation final yr. And it additionally had lease progress of seven%, which I additionally assume is the very best one on this checklist. And naturally present efficiency, not all the time a sign of future efficiency, however I believe there’s this factor happening. It’s sort of much like what I like about Lansing the place affordability is absolutely necessary and generally individuals don’t wish to go away the northeast and transfer to Michigan or to Oklahoma. They wish to keep near their household and they also search for inexpensive markets throughout the relative area the place they reside. And so I believe there are a number of locations truly in Connecticut that match this invoice and I like New Haven for that individual motive. Did

Henry :

You simply slickly throw in a basketball verbiage in there with dunking on different markets? Actual sly?

Dave :

It’s humorous, I didn’t imply to, however afterward I used to be pleased with it. If you happen to could possibly be pleased with one thing you didn’t intend to do, which I’m. Nicely I already know you’re all going to say no to this as a result of nobody likes investing within the Northeast, however I’m attempting to be a contrarian

James:

As we speak. I’m in on this one. You

Dave :

Like that huge fairness progress, proper?

James:

I like the massive fairness progress. I prefer it’s additional water. I’ve to be an additional water, however the high quality dwelling simply good there and that’s what we’re seeing is that migration in the direction of good high quality. Residing New Haven is the Ivy League of Good Instances is what it’s identified to be. Who doesn’t wish to spend money on someplace the place it’s all good instances? However I prefer it. I just like the fairness progress, I like the standard dwelling. I believe it’s a win to investor.

Kathy :

Nicely, I don’t personally make investments simply due to the native meals, so I might say if I did, I might in all probability, the place’s their nice meals, new Orleans. I don’t

Dave :

Know. That’s true. Not the very best investing market, however it’s like if it’s a must to go there, you would possibly as effectively make investments someplace such as you get pleasure from being and also you get pleasure from consuming. And so New Haven possibly matches that invoice for me. However yeah, I perceive it’s not for everybody, however as somebody who grew up within the Northeast, I believe this is among the markets within the area that could possibly be a winner. Shifting on to your second market, Henry, what are you selecting?

Henry :

For my second market, I selected Baton Rouge, Louisiana. I selected this market as a result of I virtually moved there out of faculty. And as I used to be researching that city again then, I used to be pleasantly shocked with what it needed to provide. I get pleasure from the truth that once more, you sort of get a giant metropolis really feel with out it being an enormous main metropolis. You’ve got an awesome unemployment price, 3.3%, you’ve bought constructive inhabitants progress. And proper now there’s a pattern of numerous individuals shifting to Baton Rouge, Louisiana. There are many individuals from Los Angeles and Dallas significantly which are shifting to Baton Rouge, Louisiana proper now. And one other factor that I really like about this market is it’s one other market with a really numerous economic system. They’ve nice petrochemicals firms, manufacturing, there’s a mixture of healthcare, clearly schooling, why we’re sitting right here speaking about it, however it’s all surrounded in affordability.

Henry :

So the median dwelling worth there may be 226,000 median lease’s just a little decrease than I’d prefer it to be with that worth level at 1351. However that simply means you’ll be able to in all probability discover a deal for lower than that median and get first rate cashflow with just a little little bit of appreciation. I might really feel over time as individuals proceed emigrate to the realm, you’ve additionally bought some native migration from areas like New Orleans shifting to the Baton Rouge space. There are tons of nice jobs, it’s an awesome value of dwelling and I believe that persons are beginning to see Baton Rouge as a spot they may reside within the south.

Kathy :

It’s simply too small a marketplace for me. Like I mentioned, it’s a inhabitants of 873,000. I simply really feel prefer it’s simply not rising quick sufficient and there wouldn’t be sufficient out of a tenant pool for me.

Dave :

I like how everybody’s getting feisty now. As soon as we began saying, after we had been like, I don’t like your advertising, I used to be like, I don’t like your advertising, your advertising,

Kathy :

You didn’t like mine, I don’t like yours.

James:

I believe Louisiana is among the coolest states there may be to go go to. However the issue I’ve with it’s the crime is simply brutal and I believe it’s going to forestall progress. And for me as an investor, I’m attempting to remain out of areas the place I’m seeing spikes in crime and points. We’ve sufficient of that happening in my portfolio now in Seattle. Baton Rouge is among the highest crime charges in America. I believe that’s what’s going to decelerate, appreciation, inhabitants progress. And till they get this type of balanced out and discovered like New Orleans as effectively, I’ll go go to, however I’m going to place the cash into the tradition and the meals and make investments it elsewhere.

Dave :

See Kathy, effectively James wasn’t saying he was going to take a position primarily based on meals. He simply talked about meals and I used to be completely happy to listen to it.

James:

So meals is so good there. It’s

Kathy :

Superb. Nicely now I wish to go. I’ve to go. We

Dave :

Nonetheless have two extra markets on our market Madda present, so stick with us. You don’t wish to miss these final two. Alright, effectively let’s transfer on to your second market. James, what do you

James:

Acquired? You wish to speak about good meals and a vibe. I picked Charleston. The Cougars are ranked quantity 13, they’re enjoying Alabama. And the second motive I picked Charleston was as a result of they’re ranked quantity 13. That’s my fortunate quantity. So I really feel like we bought vibe there. However Charleston is one in all my favourite cities in all of America. And when you haven’t visited there you need to as a result of it’s while you go there, it simply has its personal separate feeling and it’s attracting individuals to come back there. It’s an outdated metropolis with a whole lot of tradition, nice music, nice meals. Crime is fairly balanced round there. It’s high quality of dwelling. In line with journey and leisure, it was ranked primary within the US for high quality of dwelling and journey. And I consider it as a result of it’s only a nice, nice metropolis. If you happen to haven’t been there, you bought to go. However their unemployment’s two and a half % inhabitants smaller at 830,000. However that doesn’t imply which you can’t earn money in a smaller inhabitants. That simply means,

Dave :

Means Kathy’s going to vote in opposition to you is what it means.

James:

That simply means there’s restricted provide, restricted individuals. That’s how one can crush a deal, Kathy. So these small markets, when it’s small, you have got a greater probability to hit. And so I don’t have an issue with the smallness of it simply due to how cool it’s, however the median earnings is at 78,000. So you bought robust workforce there. Boeing’s there, it’s continuously rising and the median dwelling worth is at 4 18 and so you will get some runway, particularly after they bought appreciation of over 9.3%. So it’s an awesome metropolis, excellent spot to reside. Metrics are there. The economic system’s there. I might purchase there all day lengthy and I might even reside there. I take into account dwelling there 9 months in the past. I’m 100% in Charleston and I truly would possibly go purchase there regardless.

Kathy :

See, that is actually an necessary factor to note is that we’ve got totally different methods. So that you’re proper, it in all probability would be just right for you for any individual who’s shopping for a home that wants restore, fixing it up and promoting it instantly, you’re in all probability not planning to carry there. However for me, investing out of state and attempting to make the numbers work as a purchase and maintain it’s simply not for me. It’s too costly for too small of a spot, too small of a rental pool and it doesn’t work for me. However once more, you simply bought to know your technique earlier than you go in and to know which basketball city goes to be just right for you.

James:

However Kathy, the lease progress was 6.9%. So we’re seeing lease progress. That’s true. Meet up with that pricing.

Henry :

That’s level. You do should know your technique. Dave, do you have got any suggestions for people who find themselves attempting to determine their technique and all this?

Dave :

Nicely, if you need an enormous e-book, why don’t you begin with technique. If you wish to determine what technique is best for you, when you’re sitting right here pondering all of those markets are so nice, I simply have to determine which one would work in it, then take a look at that e-book. However truly I do completely agree with you, Kathy. Charleston looks as if an awesome flipping market. It’s not for me, however when you had been flipping like James might be doing, I can see why you prefer it. Alright, Kathy, what’s your final deal? And inform us so James can vote in opposition to it.

Kathy :

Nicely, mine is Greenville. Clemson College is a superb school from what I perceive and what I’ve heard and simply enjoyable truth, I don’t know the place I used to be, however some psychic advised me a few years in the past that Clemson was the place to take a position. I didn’t pay attention, I didn’t go. However is that true? Yeah, this psychic got here as much as me and mentioned, you need to spend money on Clemson, however I didn’t. So I have to not consider in this stuff.

Dave :

Nicely, I imply principally the present is about knowledge and goal info, however if you wish to begin bringing psychic knowledge into the present, you might be greater than welcome to down.

Kathy :

And the concept was that after all it’s college city, so possibly not that a lot psychicness in there as a result of typically universities don’t decide up and go away. So it’s a strong employer, particularly if it has status that Clemson has. Unemployment is absolutely low at 2.9% inhabitants near 1,000,000. I’m going to name it 1,000,950 8,000. So that also works for me. Virtually 959 inhabitants progress, 1.9, the median earnings, 65,000, median dwelling worth, 282,000. So sort of decrease contemplating its location in one of many quickest rising areas within the nation. The southeast is rising so rapidly and this little market is getting on the map. So I believe it has a whole lot of alternative though appreciation hasn’t been that spectacular, simply 3% right now. However I do see potential there. Hire progress has been virtually 5%. That’s nice. So a small market, in all probability not a whole lot of new provide approaching.

Kathy :

And like we talked about, in some circumstances, small markets could be good for that motive as a result of there’s a necessity for housing and never an answer for that. And that would flip into appreciation sooner or later. So with that base of Clemson College within the Carolinas which are rising so rapidly, as a result of I’ve heard, once more, not from a psychic, however from those who a whole lot of instances individuals from the northeast wish to transfer to hotter climates. They get to Florida and discover out it’s simply too scorching or it’s not the local weather they need. They name it a boomerang and so they minimize a boomerang again to the Carolinas the place the temperatures are possibly just a little extra reasonable and the costs maybe decrease than what we’re seeing in Florida. So I like this market.

Henry :

Yeah, so does coach Chad Carson.

Dave :

Yeah, that’s what I used to be going to say. I’m simply going to say sure as a result of Chad’s there and he’s investor.

Henry :

Yeah, Chad is an effective investor.

Kathy :

I didn’t know that.
