Making the Most of College, and Books That Educate and Empower
"Back to our body politic angel. Good to see you again. How do you view the return on investment of higher education today. I'm asking because you wrote in the atlantic it's harder than ever for lower income students to afford college. What's the state of play for college. Accessibility and affordability. So i think the first thing to acknowledge is that college is certainly expensive in actually the the rate of college tuition keeps going up at a much faster rate than inflation but the reality of the matter is college. Education is still one of the best investments that any student can make in their lifetime. All of the data shows to the point that if you get a college education you have much higher possibility of getting more employment over time you will make more money over a lifetime. So wallet is expensive. It certainly is still a very good investment. So what are the best solutions. Is it about making college. Less expensive about increasing scholarships and financial aid about some people not going to college. We're at the solutions. Coming from the solutions are gonna come from a lot of different places. One college administrators need to start thinking about how to cut costs so that students can actually afford their education a little bit more but the other pieces. We have a real serious reckoning due in this country around how higher education is funded in most other countries. Higher education is much more affordable sometimes free and so changing our model thinking about the way that our government invest in higher education is actually really important but also we have to invest in more financial aid for students actually might association the national association for college. Admission counseling just put out in partnership with a bunch of other organizations a campaign for the biden administration to double the pell grant for the lowest income students in the united states. And so it's initiatives like that that are going to help move the needle. But i do want to say because i think it's really important. It is very dangerous. The city young people today do not go to college because if you look at the predictions about all of the future of work the majority of jobs are actually going to require a college education and no one wants to be left behind.

"You should be able to carry that firearm openly or concealed without having to pay a tax to the government. The reality is of course. This is always buried in the national media. There are stories all the time of normal citizens carrying firearms and defending themselves stopping mass shootings. But again it doesn't. It never gets an immediate attraction because the mass shooting doesn't occur know. There's a crazy person that shows up somewhere with a knife a gun a bomber car. And then there's a law-abiding citizen there. Who stops them in half the time. They don't even have to discharge their weapon in stops crime. So you're exactly right these laws all. They do is hamper the ability for normal individuals to protect themselves and crazy. Deranged terrorists You know they'll get their weapons other ways. I mean the department of justice did a study where they interviewed People who are in prison who committed crimes with weapons they said you know. How did you get your guns. Did you get your weapon. They're like all we bought it illegally. It was a straw purchase. We stole it so they're admitting that all the laws you wanna pass. They're not going to stop us.

Well they're making it or they would like to make it financially unfeasible for the average american to pay insurance on three four five eight ten guns however many you own the second amendment doesn't say you can't own x amount of guns you could By mandating that have to have insurance on each one of those..

We are a five. Oh one c.

Dc by we have lobbyists who work on capitalize to live in washington dc. Myself farms lobbyist in. We have a very large field team. Networks in state legislatures all across the country mostly working on the passage of constitutional carry. But also getting people involved to understand. What's going on and fundamentally our power comes from are four and a half million members. Grassroots activists are the folks that helped lobby legislators to tell him either. Hey don't vote for this gun control. Bill were watching what you're doing or the reverse. Hey there's a great bill here that will restore our rights. I want you to vote for this. I'm a voter at living your district. I know who you are. and so. that's that's what we're about as an organization is not compromising not taking half measures showing and really reminding people You know the left wants to say. Oh there's no gun control in in the united states which is obviously patently false. I mean you can go back nearly one hundred years the national firearms act of nineteen thirty. Four the gun control act of nineteen sixty eight the hughes amendment in one thousand nine or excuse me nineteen eighty-four the brady law nineteen ninety-three the assault weapons ban which obviously sunset in two thousand four and the knicks expansion. Act in two thousand. I mean they've been passing so much gun control over the last one hundred years as an organization we were looking around and realizing we have to stop this. And so that's what we do and we're proud to do that work. We've been very successful at at the state level especially constitutional carries a big a big issue for us at the state level. We helped pass constitutional carrying montana and utah. This year is walls in iowa and then at the federal level. It's unfortunately mostly playing defense. There's not a whole lot to do to pass program bills. Obviously we do work with with legislators to introduce program legislation and try and move the ball for as much as you can but it's mostly playing defense. I mean that's exactly what we did in twenty thirteen during the two mansion fight. Most some people might realize that during president obama's second term after the tragedy at sandy hook they wanted to pass a ton of gun control and it was our members who were who were pouring and phone calls and petitions and emails personal visits to capitol hill Telling telling your legislators you can't vote for this this is this is the destruction of our gun rights. So that's really kind of that was a long explanation. But that's really what we're about as organizationto well since the beginning of the year I know as of august there were five million new firsthand gun owners and that's a tremendous amount of.

"The National Association of Real Tours. Where he's been on the board of directors for more than a decade. Kevin. Welcome back to realestate today. Even thank you for the opportunity again. We're delighted You're here. So, Kevin. Anyone who follows the news knows That Massachusetts is doing very well right now. Partially because they cracked down hard when the pandemic was at its peak. So now that it's a relatively safer situation in the state of Massachusetts. Is that having any effect on realestate? I'm not seeing a significant increase in activity Just because we have been so busy. I think that really the problem comes down to misperceptions of cellars or potential sellers. That are still concerned about how contagious virus is and the thought of having strangers coming through their home. You know, we have been deemed essential since the shutdown began within 72 hours of the governor. Implementing the state of emergency real estate was deemed essential. So we've continued to work throughout. But just because we're in phase three here in Massachusetts of the reopening, we're not seeing a rush of potential sellers listing their properties. And so the wires are still out there. The demand is there, you know, Talk to your local realtor. Hire them make sure that they put into place in the listing that they want to have. Ah Cove. It's safe showings, and it's It's just an added layer protection and I for one, when I'm doing my showing, I was have Lysol wipes with me and I wipe any surface. Before and after. I touch it both for my protection and for the seller's protection, So there's some common sense things that can be done. But it's a matter of easing the concerns of potential sellers so that they actually do with their homes. What kind of person Comes to you and says I want to sell my house right now. I don't wanna wait. Who is that person? Well when people want to sell their various reasons, and I think the pandemic had a lot of people hit the pause button. But right now I'm working with some sellers that needed to upgrade their family is expanding and they need to move from there. First time home, Tio take that next step up. I've got some sellers that our investors and they see what's happening with the market and now is a good time for them to sell, especially because interest rates so low so there are various types of sellers that are out there and looking to dip their toe in the sales market. It's just a matter of you know what their motivation and each each cellar that I'm working with. Has different motivations right now. I see And when they sell, Are those properties completely emptied out so that really the buyer is looking at a vacant house? So my last few transactions. I've actually had both scenarios that you just laid out the occupied property. What I'll tell you is that we went under contract within 72 hours of listing. And so there was a flurry of activity in the 1st 3 days. But then we were able to quiet down that activity and that is the disturbance to the cellars. After the initial listening, period, you know, obviously, inspectors and appraisers on that sort of thing need to come in, but it really slows down the amount of activity. And then with regards to the vacant properties, you know, those are selling quickly as well. But it doesn't matter how many people go in because the cellar isn't there to have to worry about leaving the property and then completely disinfecting it before they go back in and live their life in the home, So Kevin, looking ahead to the rest of 2020 What's your take? Is this going to be a good year for real estate? Ah, great year Or maybe not so good. That's a great question. And so what is the determining factor going to be on whether it's a good year for real estate? Because right now what we're seeing in Western Massachusetts is that The number of sales the units sold are down close to 20% this time this year compared to this same time last year, So the fact that we're selling less is a concern. On the flip side. However, because of the lack of inventory and the multiple offer situations that are happening on most property that are selling, we're seeing a sales price increase of close to 7%. So we're getting mixed numbers, But to say whether it's going to be good or bad. It all depends on what metrics you're going to use to judge it. And for me if we're down 20% on units sold in 2020 you know, I will consider that a tough year for real estate just because we have the buyers out there, and it's just a matter of getting the inventory so that we could have had A more successful year. Absolutely well, Kevin. I really appreciate you walking us through what really, estate is like during the pandemic in western Massachusetts. Thank you. Thanks again. Stephen. Have a great day. You too. My friend Kevin Sears, broker owner of Sears Real Estate in Springfield, Massachusetts.

Joining us again is Nicole Nicolay real tour with the angle group at compass in Livermore, California. Nicole a lot of people as you say are always looking at their phones. Should the video be shot in portrait or landscape mode? What kind of video you're shooting? So if I'm shooting ninety second lifestyle video, I'm thinking of that as a higher quality. Video one that I'm gonna launch a targeted ad with in social media channel. So it's going to be landscape for match. But if I am say promoting an open house, or on broker tour, or I'm just informing and giving tips about real estate. I may be using a vertical format because that works better on the fly, and it may work better in various social media channels, like, for example, in my Instagram story. Interesting, interesting. And what about live this Facebook live or any of the other live channels figure into real estate marketing, they do, but I would say more, so on an event basis maybe you're doing a twilight tour of your home's like I said, I've listing where the great backyard. So we're gonna do some really creative things for broker tour. I may have a taco truck come up and we're serving tacos and having kind of a little mini backyard party in this great listing will add, I'm having other. Colleagues in agents and brokers to view the home, and I may have invited neighbors. It's fun often to incorporate your colleagues and potential buyers or neighbors into your videos, because they get excited that they were a part of the experience and know, often look for it in social media and worn a share it or tagged in it, we want to create a Holter of collaboration within real estate rather than a culture of competition. And that's one way that you can really connect. And using video not just with potential buyers online, but your fellow colleagues as well. That's so awesome. So Nicole could we pause, the conversation about video for minute to ask you a completely different question? Hit me with your best shot. You bring a taco truck. Yes, I do occasionally not every time but I do live in California is awesome right now. Is that good for business? Always great for business. Are you kidding? I wanna create experiences or my fellow colleagues to help me generate more interest for a home, and I want to create an experience for the neighbors and potential buyers that are coming through to, again, hopefully generate more interesting competition for that particular home. And then it's great even for the local business to get involved. And then you're actually folding in at that moment, community marketing, so you're widening your own sphere, and creating more relationships. That is awesome. So Nicole, let's get back to video now in some of our conversation, how important is video to real estate marketing, in two thousand nineteen it can element that you do not want to discount in this market. It takes your professional photography to the next level. It elicits motion with the tunnel buyers in a way that no other media can other than being their face to face, and it will elevate your marketing to the next level by giving, you great content to put online to target potential buyers and places like Facebook and Instagram to, to utilize on your own website or blog.
