Bill Fairman

Jonathan Davis

00:02:16

For everyone out there wondering. I'm six foot two hunter's, just seven foot.

Bill Fairman

00:02:24

Yeah, I'm

Jonathan Davis

00:02:25

Just sure. I'm trying to keep my head in the

Bill Fairman

00:02:26

Frame for you. I can go ahead and admit that I'm vertically challenged. Oh, that I don't have an issue with that. No. So yes, we have our, our guest Hunter B he is with Elevate Capital. We have what about a three year history? Guess? 4, 4, 4

Jonathan Davis

00:02:45

And a half. Four and a half year history.

Bill Fairman

00:02:47

It's a great story. We're gonna let him tell it instead of me or Jonathan tell

Jonathan Davis

00:02:52

It. Yeah. And before he tells that, I just wanna get some quick information in for everyone. Just want, this was some data that we have that will kind of lead into what Hunter's gonna talk about, but also about the emerging markets. We are, this is what, the third month in a row where we've seen rents slow, but they are still rising. Charlotte is kind of, I think in the top seven on still rent increases, which is 11.5% year over year. The median rent in Charlotte right now is almost $1,800. And if you've followed the show, you also know that the median house payment for a mortgage is 18, 18 50. So they're, they're right there with each other, which is, you

Bill Fairman

00:03:49

Know, that means there's room to grow.

Jonathan Davis

00:03:50

I suppose so. I suppose so. So we're also seeing, give me a second.

Bill Fairman

00:03:57

No issues.

Jonathan Davis

00:03:58

We're also seeing a slow down and starts on single families and a slow down and starts on multifamily. However, construction that is in process is up on multifamily by 27% and up on single family still by 4%. So we're still seeing, you know, there's still growth, but we're next, you know, Hunter and I were talking a little offline a little earlier, and you know, as the next month and, and two months comes in, we're gonna see that decline and that slowing down hit even harder and boasted because of the interest rates. Supply chains, picking up lumber, you know, as we were talking about earlier, as, you know, back to pre pandemic levels, which is good. So also if the, if you're in the way of the hurricane, we're very sorry. I think, Bill, did you lose a home?

Bill Fairman

00:04:51

Well, yeah, that's what I was gonna jump in into before we got too, too far into this that you guys pray for the folks in Florida, we have some short-term rentals down there, but we don't live there full time. So it's not affecting us like it would the people that live down there full time. And there are people that are missing as well. So keep 'em in your prayers. It's gonna be a while to recover where it hit the hardest. Yeah. That said, starts almost always do this when there's a coming recession.

Jonathan Davis

00:05:24

Exactly.

Bill Fairman

00:05:25

People are being a little bit more cautious. Banks are kind of holding off on commercial and residential development because through every downturn, or we'll just call it a crash. Yeah. What's the first thing that goes under? And it's the start of a development. Exactly. So it, it, here's the problem though. We're still 5 million homes behind where we need to be based on the population growth. So all it's gonna do is increase demand for what's out there. Yeah. Right. Yeah.

Jonathan Davis

00:05:57

Well, talking about increasing demand, want, you know, get Hunter talking here. We wanna know kind of, you demanded each stop by we demand. So wanting to know kind of how you all got started, What was the first project, and then just kind of take us through and, you know, I'm sure Bill and I will interrupt and jump in from time to

Hunter Bick

00:06:17

Time. Okay. So like the three to five minute version, not the 20. Hey, you

Jonathan Davis

00:06:21

Take all the time you need. We're on your time, man. Yeah.

Hunter Bick

00:06:23

All right, cool. So we kind, we, our, our partnership Elevate Cowboy Group got started really, we started 2017 ish, mid 2017. And one of our partners, it was high school, buddy of mine, his name's Matt. And then we met our third partner, Shannon, pretty shortly thereafter. And we just really clicked really well. And you know, we at the time, even, even now, but like the, the whole idea is effectively we do is value add multifamily, where we can go in, find something that's underpriced because of distress or a bad rent roll or whatever it is. We can go in, renovate, improve the quality of life, improve the asset. And

Jonathan Davis

00:07:06

You pulling those off with mls, right?

Hunter Bick

00:07:08

No. Now the very first one had been on LoopNet, believe it or not, our very first deal was in an emerging market. So good segue. Yeah. In Fayetteville, North Carolina. And it had been on loop net, we made an offer, didn't get it, came back to us a few months later, fell out a contract and it was $2 million for 56 doors in Fayetteville, which in today's world would be Absolut absolutely unheard of. That was, and that was in

Jonathan Davis

00:07:33

2018.

Hunter Bick

00:07:34

It was 2018. And at the time, everyone told us we were idiots for wanting to buy anything in Fayetteville, and we'll get into that in a minute, but they were wrong. And so we had an appraisal for this property and we had like a hundred grand to buy an apartment building. And we had an appraisal, said it was worth two and a half million. And Shannon and I were talking about it, We were like, Well, why don't we put hard money on it? So we came down here to Carolina Hard Money, aka Carolina Capital Management now, Excuse me. Yes. Yep. And showed you guys what we had and you guys got it. And that's what helped launch us. We wouldn't be here today without, without that first deal and all the other ones we've done together and, and you guys gave us a hundred percent of the purchase and some rental money five months later, that thing appraised for 3.3. Yep. And we did a cash out. I think our new loan on it was two and a half, maybe paid you guys back, took some cash out to put towards future renovations. And that's kind of how we found our model. It's basically like a leveraged buyout private equity type model. Yeah, we've done that. We've done what, 20 deals now? We've done most of them in some similar structure. I was gonna say on this first deal. Yeah.

Bill Fairman

00:08:55

It was based on market conditions. It was pretty much fully occupant, right?

Hunter Bick

00:09:00

Yeah. It was like 85 something.

Bill Fairman

00:09:02

Yeah. And while it, there might have been some updates that could be made. It wasn't that it was in bad shape, it was just outdated. Right? It

Hunter Bick

00:09:13

Was, it was compared to some of the stuff we've seen, it was not in bad shape. Yeah. It, it definitely needed some deferred maintenance. It had some issues. The that one though, the, the income statement was where lot of the value add was, right? Like the expenses were off the charts. Like the previous owner was, this is not, this is no joke. He was spending $400 a month to lease a copy machine. Why on earth does an apartment comp? First off, you could buy one for half of that. Second of all, what is an apartment comp? Like what is it like, why would that be on an apartment complex as

Bill Fairman

00:09:45

Books? Right? It was installed in a new car. That's the difference.

Hunter Bick

00:09:48

It must have been. Right. And so, you know, we knew enough to say, okay, 400 times 12 is $4,800 a month, $4,000 a year to divide that by, at the time it was like a seven cap. I mean, the math on that is big money on the valuation. And so we, we, we fixed a lot of stuff like that.

Jonathan Davis

01:10:09

And that's, you know, just, just to jump in. I mean, when you're looking at these that it's not what you can increase. Everyone thinks what can, you know, what's the rents that I can increase, You know, and under market rents. That's, that's, you know, a great way to look at it. However, this particular asset that when I was underwriting it, it was actually the, you know, when I joined with Wendy Bill, this was the first multifamily that I under underwrote for them. We could see immediately there was exorbitant amount of expenses on there that shouldn't have been there, that created hundreds of thousands of dollars of value once they just removed them.

Bill Fairman

01:10:44

No. Now on, I was gonna say on the reverse side of that, if your brother-in-law is gonna be able to do stuff a lot cheaper than the market Yeah. That's not gonna count than the valuation. So something to keep an eye on when you're looking

Jonathan Davis

01:10:57

At these things. Yeah. You can't say like, you know, well my expense ratio is gonna be 20 when market's 35. Right. You can't say that.

Hunter Bick

01:11:04

No. I mean, you can, but no one's gonna believe you.

Bill Fairman

01:11:06

No

Jonathan Davis

01:11:06

One no, no price's

Hunter Bick

01:11:07

Gonna use that. Yeah, no, no. Good lender will buy it. Yeah. Yeah. And so, you know, the commercial real estate is valued on the operating income, the, the, the net operating income, the noi, and that's the game. And depending on the deal, it could be that could be through, you know, buying an empty property and fixing it and, and leasing it to market. It could be cutting expenses from mismanagement. It can come in many different ways. Yep. And you know, a lot of 'em, the CapEx, some of them need so much CapEx that doesn't generate revenue. Like we looked at one where capital

Jonathan Davis

01:11:40

Expenditures, things that you have to do to the property is what CapEx is. Yeah.

Hunter Bick

01:11:45

Thank you. Yes. And so, but there's different types like roofs, structures,

Jonathan Davis

01:11:52

Hvac,

Hunter Bick

01:11:52

H H V C

Jonathan Davis

01:11:53

Sales things don't add value because people expect a roof and they expect, you know,

Hunter Bick

01:11:57

Exactly. A lease is a two-way document and these things are supposed to work per your side of the leasing, the lease contract. And so you don't get bonus, you don't get anything for that. But if all of the, all of the CapEx that a property needs is unit upgrades or improving the landscaping or the curb appeal or things like that, those things drive value immediately. And that, and so you ideally you want properties that have new roofs and new parking lots and don't need structural work. Yep. And you can just go renovate doors. Now all your CapEx money is going to where it makes the biggest difference. Yep. And so you can see any combination of that. Some, you know, some deals work, some people don't. But you know, that's definitely something to, to look for.

Bill Fairman

01:12:41

And and your typical business model is essentially whatever the, the best deal is. Right. It's not just about buying hold, it could be buy or renovate and sell at the same time, depending on the high

Jonathan Davis

01:12:55

Best use for the

Bill Fairman

01:12:56

Property. Cause there could be some great offers that are coming in. Yeah,

Hunter Bick

01:12:58

It could be. Yeah. You know, when we go in, we, we don't want to be married to a particular exit strategy. Sure. You know, and so if, if the deal only works, if we can turn around and sell it in a year, 18 months, probably not gonna do it. Right. There have been a couple, there would, I can think of a couple exceptions to that, depending on markets and different types of assets. But in general, like, you don't wanna be locked in to one path because if that one path doesn't work and you're gonna, if if it doesn't work and you're gonna lose money, that's tough. That's not a situation you wanna be in because real estate's illiquid, it's expensive to sell. You don't wanna be in a situation where path A you lose X and path B you lose X times two. That is not a situation. Our job, my job is to keep us outta that situation. Right. So everything we do, we wanna be able to have the option to refinance it. Yeah. We

Jonathan Davis

01:13:48

Sell it. Absolutely. Yeah. That's, we talked about multiple exits always. So why, why is Hunter here on this show for emerging markets? That's because when I talk with him and his partners, what's really important and what they're really good at is sourcing deals and underwriting deals. So much so that like, you know, in 2018 they were, you know, in Fayetteville before a lot of people got into Fayetteville. And what we want to talk about is, Hunter, what are some of the metrics that you look at when you're underwriting a, a project or a property and maybe it's in a, you know, a market that you're not familiar with or you're thinking about getting there, or it seems like it's a great deal, but, you know, what are the metrics you look at for those particular markets?

Hunter Bick

01:14:38

Sure. Yeah. So the first thing we, the first thing I wanna look at for any deal is the rent roll, right? Is I wanna know where are these rents compared to the average or median in that market, right? You look at some markets where maybe the rent roll 600 bucks, it's like, okay, well that, that could be high, that could be low. It depends on the rest of the market, right? Yeah. And so then the, you know, the, the second thing, if it's a new market, we wanna see rent to median income. Yep. Where, how low are the rents compared to the median income? And if you look at, But that only matters if you look at a bunch of other cities too, right? Everything's relative. So when we were looking at Fayetteville, for example, in 2018, Fayetteville's rent media income at that time it was like 18%. If you, Charlotte was like 32, all these other cities were like high twenties, like Raleigh times 20,

Jonathan Davis

01:15:24

They're 25 and up.

Hunter Bick

01:15:25

Yeah. Yeah. They're all 25 up. And then here's Fayville, like all the way at the bottom, like way below like every other, you know, 30 other cities. And we're like, okay, clearly the media income in Fayetteville can support higher rents, you know, in the near

Jonathan Davis

01:15:38

Future. And, and in rents to median income, it's, it's just a, a hunter's way or someone who's buying multifamily or lender. It's the same way as looking at like your debt to income. That's, it's it's the exact same thing. So kind

Hunter Bick

01:15:52

Of at scale it's

Jonathan Davis

01:15:53

Yeah, yeah, exactly. At scale. So it's instead of an individualized debt income, it's a generalized debt to income for what are the average people making and what are the average rents. Right?

Hunter Bick

01:16:02

Exactly. And so, and, and so then, so you wanna have an idea of not only where, where are rents at this particular asset, relative to this particular market, but what higher risks can this market in general support? Yeah. So that's kind of the by far away when you,

Jonathan Davis

01:16:17

When you 18% you think could

Hunter Bick

01:16:20

Rise. Yeah. Yeah, it could rise. Absolutely. Yeah. When plenty of other cities are sustaining at 30, right?

Jonathan Davis

01:16:25

Yeah. But when you see something at, at 28, you're like, hm. You know, Yeah. It might rise a little bit, but there's not a lot of potentially a lot of meat

Hunter Bick

01:16:32

There. And it may not disqualify it either because even, let's say, let's say it's a 28 or 30 for the market, but this particular asset is still $200 below the average in that market. Still a great deal. Right?

Jonathan Davis

01:16:43

Exactly. Yeah.

Hunter Bick

01:16:44

So, you know, so you wanna, you just wanna have the perspective of all that together. The other, the other big one of course is what kind of employers, what's the job base? How stable are these jobs? The case with Fayetteville and you know, we tell the story a lot, but so many people told us we were crazy to be buying in Fayetteville because obviously Fort Bragg is in Fayetteville. That is the biggest military base on the planet by far.

Jonathan Davis

01:17:10

By personnel. Yeah.

Hunter Bick

01:17:11

Yeah. By, by by count is 45,000 active duty soldiers. It is the home of the US special forces and, but then there's another like 30 or 35,000 civilian contractors that work on that base every day. So obviously that's a key economic driver of Fayetteville. No question. They also have a lot of healthcare, higher education. They have other job, the other industries that are doing well and growing. Yeah.

Jonathan Davis

01:17:37

This their support systems all around for for that.

Hunter Bick

01:17:40

Yeah, exactly. So people were like, Well, you're crazy mother, what if Fort Bragg goes away? It's like, okay. It's like, can we talk in probabilities please? Because okay, sure that might happen. But what is the probability of the US government moving the biggest military base on the planet out of fort away from Fayetteville? Why would they do that? That will probably never happen. So, I mean, I'm a former poker player, everything's a probability to me. Let's put a probability on this point. Oh oh 1% maybe? Sure. Maybe oh oh two, maybe oh two. Perfect. I can model that. Yeah. Great. I'm willing to take that chance to buy something that is half off. Yeah. That is half, literally half of what this asset is worth all day long. Yep. No problem. I'm happy with that risk.

Bill Fairman

01:18:25

Now do you still have that asset?

Hunter Bick

01:18:27

We actually did sell that one. Okay. That one we 10 31 into try house. Oh

Bill Fairman

01:18:32

Nice. Now let's start at the beginning. What'd you pay for it

Hunter Bick

01:18:37

For? For Apple Applewood. AK metal metal 0.2 million. Right. 2 million. And then

Bill Fairman

01:18:43

And you sold it, You exited for what?

Hunter Bick

01:18:45

Four three. Four four. And

Bill Fairman

01:18:47

You did that and how many years

Hunter Bick

01:18:50

Was it two years? Yeah, it was 18 months. 1818 months was 18 months was 18 months. I think it was 18

Bill Fairman

01:18:55

Months. So not a bad roi.

Hunter Bick

01:18:58

No, that's going, That's going. Yeah. I wish, you know, I wish all of them were as easy to underwrite as that one and that one, you know, our thing with FA too is like the cash on cash yield for buying doors at 40 grand a door in Fayetteville when the rents were like 700 average, the cash on cash was ridiculous. It was like almost double digits, right? Yeah. And so we were like, it is only a matter of time until bigger institutions who already love North Carolina noticed this. Yep. And these properties are gonna bid up like crazy cuz the cash yield is so good. And so we, everything we could find under, I think under 50 a door, like we bought a couple hundred doors under 50 a door and we didn't say no, whatever it was, we just, we said we had figure out to own this and that's what we did. And just a couple years later, man, I mean a hundred a door on average, I've seen things straight for 1 25 a door in Fayetteville. Like Yep. Decent bs not even a's or anything. The A is over 180. Yeah. You know? Exactly. So that did end up happening. So we were fortunate there, but trust your analysis, you stick your guns

Bill Fairman

02:20:00

As these larger markets and, and even Charlotte is not exactly a major market. It's approaching one, but it's the largest market between Atlanta and say DC Yeah, right. So we'll, we'll

Hunter Bick

02:20:13

Call it And multi in multifamily is a major market though.

Bill Fairman

02:20:15

Yeah. Well, we'll call it a major market. That said, how do you, how do you find or how are you marketing to get properties in these smaller tertiary markets?

Hunter Bick

02:20:28

Yeah, I mean really just building relationships. You know, one of our partners, you don't know Margaret, do you, We don't only do much, you know, one of our partners, his, his primary focus is, is our deal sourcing. And without, you know, we talk about this a lot, but without a deal that has a lot of money, you know, money made on the buy basically like built in equity off market has a lot of upside. Once you fix the problems, you can, you can come up with the most brilliant financial strategy in the world and you can be the best operator once you own it. You can be the best operator in the world and you can have the best construction crew in the world, but none of that's gonna matter if you overpay for a deal. Sure. Like you can't engineer your way into a great return if you're overpaying at, at the beginning. And so, but do we always

Bill Fairman

02:21:16

Say you make your money on the bank?

Hunter Bick

02:21:17

Hundred percent. Absolutely. Even

Jonathan Davis

02:21:19

In multi-family money. Even in

Hunter Bick

02:21:20

Multi-family or you

Jonathan Davis

02:21:21

Have forced appreciation because you can only force that appreciation based off of the cap rate, the capitalization rate in that area. And you can only force it to market rents and maybe slightly above. So it's, there's, there are limitations even there.

Hunter Bick

02:21:37

Absolutely. And, and so, you know, we realized pretty early we're like, look, we have to have, we have to be able to find off market deals that need a ton of work and have a lot of upside. And and that's really, that's really where it starts and makes

Jonathan Davis

02:21:52

Me think of what's, was it that one off of Arrowwood

Hunter Bick

02:21:56

Victory aka Greenwood Village Town Homes.

Jonathan Davis

02:21:59

That's okay. Greenwood. Yeah. So this was in Charlotte and what was it, 24 units, is that right? 24

Hunter Bick

02:22:07

Doors, Yeah, 24 doors. Town

Jonathan Davis

02:22:08

Homes. And

Bill Fairman

02:22:09

They were big units too. They

Jonathan Davis

02:22:11

Were, they were

Hunter Bick

02:22:11

Beautiful. It's a cool property.

Jonathan Davis

02:22:13

I'm, I'm, I'm going off here, but didn't you like, wasn't that the highest per door sale for a B asset in Charlotte?

Hunter Bick

02:22:21

I believe it was. That's what the broker said. Yeah. And that was a good exit and I think those guys did, did well on the purchase. I mean it was just a rapidly improving part of town, so they hoped they did well with it. Yeah. But yeah, then we sold that in the one 30 s for

Jonathan Davis

02:22:38

One 30 a

Hunter Bick

02:22:39

Door ish. Yeah. Something

Jonathan Davis

02:22:40

Like that. And what'd you buy it for a door? Do you remember?

Hunter Bick

02:22:43

  1. I need a lot of work. I mean we, we put in Yeah. 30 a road.

Bill Fairman

02:22:49

Yeah. You you did a lot of work on

Hunter Bick

02:22:51

That place. Yeah. Yeah. It was a total redo that

Bill Fairman

02:22:54

This place was located off the nations for road, but you had the south end was kind of creeping up towards that area and it, it was a neighborhood that was turning around

Hunter Bick

02:23:05

And that big cpcc campus right

Bill Fairman

02:23:07

Across the street from CPCC campus down there. And you guys did a nice job going in and rehabbing that place too. Well thanks. It had great large apartments. It had three bedrooms in some of 'em,

Hunter Bick

02:23:21

Didn't it? Yeah, I think two thirds of 'em were three beds.

Bill Fairman

02:23:23

Yeah. So it's, it may have been a B property to start with. When you get a lot of room like that there are, you know, larger families that are moving temporarily because they couldn't find a home in Charlotte buy because it was so hard to find inventory. And it's, that's the perfect place for people to move in to have larger families too.

Jonathan Davis

02:23:43

And when we say like, you know, A is, you know, new construction, then you have B, C, and even like D properties. So you have the, the c and D level assets, but you also have the c d level locations. So picking up a D level asset in a B location is what Hunter looks for

Hunter Bick

02:24:04

For an a

Jonathan Davis

02:24:04

Location or an a location

Hunter Bick

02:24:05

Motor landings an a location. Yeah. Dset and an A and you know, so that's, that's the best possible. The dset in the A location is like assuming the price reflects the dset, you know? Right. Yeah. That's, that's really the nice, the dream deal. And they're going Fayetteville like that where, you know, they were c minuses in an A minus location and Yeah. You know, you, you just, they'd been ignored for

40 years. I mean cuz think about it. I mean we're talking about Fayetteville cuz that, you know, again, they, they got in there in 20 17, 20 18, which you know, was, you know, a couple years before I think really? I didn't see a lot of activity there until 2019 from other guys.

Hunter Bick

02:24:43

Everybody started noticing

Jonathan Davis

02:24:44

It. Yeah. But I mean you realized quickly it was like anything near and supportive to a base that has 70 plus thousand personnel on it is probably an a minus location.

Hunter Bick

02:24:57

Unless the base goes away.

Jonathan Davis

02:24:58

Unless the base goes away. Which is a, we, you know, we can see at 0.002. So,

Bill Fairman

02:25:03

And what was unique as well about his apartment complex, there was, so there was a certain number of unit units that were kind of like an Airbnb. Right. They had short term, you talking about

Jonathan Davis

02:25:12

Victory or are

Bill Fairman

02:25:13

You talking about the one in Fayetteville? Were, weren't there any furnish

Hunter Bick

02:25:16

Yeah, there furnished to bunch

Bill Fairman

02:25:17

If you had contractors that would come in and wanna stay and, and that's a perfect thing to do in some of these. Yeah,

Hunter Bick

02:25:23

Yeah. And that's not a, depending on we, our system is a lot better. We learned and we learned a ton since a couple of these man, I would love to go back and do 'em again. Yeah. Just cuz like we always learned. I know right. What we do for some of our properties now that are in decent proximity to Fort Bragg, what we do is our property manager has like a, like a furniture rental place and we actually rent the furniture for whatever it is and then charge, you know, upcharge on that to the tenant. That way we don't have to be in the furniture storage, furniture maintenance business. That's a nightmare. So anything, we always look for ways to like smooth out the logistics. You make a little bit less money, but it's more worth Yeah. You make it back in the time.

Bill Fairman

02:26:01

Nice. Absolutely

Hunter Bick

02:26:02

Damage.

Bill Fairman

02:26:04

Get

Jonathan Davis

02:26:04

A question real quick.

Bill Fairman

02:26:05

Yeah, go ahead.

Jonathan Davis

02:26:06

Yeah, let's throw up the question of the week guys if we could. It's got it. All right. So the question of the week is, we want to know what metrics do you look at to identify emerging markets? I know we, we talked about, you know, the, the average rents, the median income. We also look at, you know, migratory patterns. We're looking at, you know, what are some other metrics that you all

Hunter Bick

02:26:38

Look at Who, who the employers are, the employers state, How stable are those jobs? Yep.

Jonathan Davis

02:26:42

Yeah. Is it, is it a medical or a base or is it, you know, a telecom service? You know those, those have different weights to them. Education's good. Yeah. A lot of people work there. It's stable. Yep. Yeah. So what metrics do you all look at to identify emerging markets that we didn't list or maybe something we did list? And you have a better explanation than we do.

Bill Fairman

02:27:05

I will say that North and South Carolina, both are a bunch of medium size cities or are a little smaller than medium size city. We have large populations in both states, but they're not, it's not like Atlanta where Atlanta covers most of the states.

Jonathan Davis

02:27:21

It is Georgia. Exactly.

Bill Fairman

02:27:24

So there's a lot of opportunities spread out all, all throughout the southeast really. Yeah. So yeah. Answer that question. Put it in our, our chat. We'll keep up with and we'll talk about it next week. I hate to do this. We're running out of time before

Jonathan Davis

02:27:40

We run outta time. I have one more thing. It surprised me. It was a metric that I read this morning that surprised me. One like in multifamily starts, the northeast has seen an increase year over year that I did not I, and in a 4.6% increase in multifamily starts Wow. In the northeast. It's only beat out by the south, which is at 5.6, which, you know, every other region is actually declining but the northeast is increasing. I and but we expected the south to, but I didn't expect the northeast,

Bill Fairman

02:28:13

I, I'm wondering if you dig deeper, are those areas that are further outside the larger cities? Cuz people wanted to be a little bit more into the suburbs and there wasn't enough single family housing to support those people have

Jonathan Davis

02:28:25

Remote work, they want more space nexts. They can maybe.

Bill Fairman

02:28:27
