We see well for many years: foreclosures sales - there were more than 5 million since the peak of the housing bubble - have become the preferred hunting grounds for investors and serve two purposes: to hold on to these houses until the massive injections of money the Fed is pushing their value,and amortize the costs related to the possession of these houses by renting. Third objective: to collect management fees. Thousands of small investors have accumulated money through this little game Just as big investors.

According to Bloomberg ,Blackstone Group LP,the largest business investment (private equity) capital,drew $ 3.5 billion real estate market engulfing over 20, 000 vacant or foreclosed homes. Blackstone Group LP,always him,has just been granted by Deutsche Bank,a new line of credit totaling $ 2.1 billion to continue doing the same thing. Colony Capital LLC has its part to raise $ 2.2 billion to work in the same direction as Blackstone Group LP.

Last year,institutional investors accounted for 19% of all sales in Las Vegas,21% in Charlotte,23% in Phoenix and 30% in Miami. This has an impact.According to the latest Case-Shiller - a moving average for the months of October,November and December - the property values ​​rose 9.9% in Atlanta,a significant jump even during the peak of the crisis real estate bubble.The figures jumped 12.9% in Las Vegas and 23% in Phoenix.Then,it starts to heat up.In February,asking prices rose 14% in Atlanta,18% in Las Vegas and Phoenix by 25% over the previous year.From another point of view: in January,the median price of a family house in Phoenix soared 35%.

The race started buying. And the next housing bubble is being inflated.

Advice Needed for Projector

Hi - I need some advice. I have an exhibition coming up & I need to project a video animation. I need to use a multi-media projector, but can not afford to buy a new one (& rentals for 1 month are extremely expensive). Does anyone have any ideas of where I can find a great deal or any other alternative for getting this type of equipment for a reasonable price???? Thanks.

  • Avatar angel2003 Where do I go to get a transparency made?

    I am trying to get a transparency made of a picture that I want to paint onto the wall. Where could I go to get that transparency made? Also, if you know the answer to a second part of my question...Where can I rent an overhead projector in Sicklerville, NJ?

    • I went to a print shop (not Kinkos). Call them first, ask if they do transparencies and then ask the cost. I think mine was $6 but that was a few years ago.

  • Avatar Sheldon Cooper I am wanting something like an overhead projector where I can project a picture onto a wall. Can I make one?

    I am talking about the simple things teachers used to use to project their notes on a wall. I am not talking about a movie projector.

    I want to paint a mural on a child's wall and want the projector to help transfer images from a coloring book to a wall.

    It seems like all I would need would be mirrors, a bright beam light and transparencies to make my own. Can anyone help me?

    • I once gave a talk where I wanted an "opaque projector" to project photographs from a book onto a screen. I asked teachers, rental places, churches -- every place I could think of -- and failed to find one. Eve …aintly with pencil, or by placing pencil dots where the corners fall. Then you copy the lines in each small square into its corresponding larger one. Dividing the picture this way helps preserve the existing proportions.
