"Into this thing? Let's jump in. I want to hear more from Dan. The man, Harvey, one. Dan Harvey, welcome to the bigger pockets podcast. How are you today? I'm doing great. Thanks for having me, guys. Yeah, so apparently you bet both Jay and I at a Dave van horn event in Philadelphia. And we didn't remember, of course, because that happens all the time. So thank you very much for your kidding me. I remembered my dad and I are best friends. So you ended up a bad memory, David. I'm the only jerk on this podcast right now. That's probably true. But I do remember now Dan, you jog my memory and I remember putting a water bottle down in between our chairs and I'm pretty sure you were sitting either right next to me or like one person over because I'm remembering now you have a very strong jaw line that really sticks out, so that look at that. Thank you. I think that. So Dan, you are doing some pretty incredible and creative stuff in Philadelphia that I love because it really encapsulates that spirit of if you can't find a deal, you gotta make a deal. You're not saying oh, it's too hot in the markets too hot. You're sort of in my mind, one of the frontrunners that's out there taking a new level of creativity and ambition into real estate investing. And I'm really excited to talk to you today to get some insight into what you're doing. Not just other people can do what you are doing. But what I really hope is that we sort of unlock the key of creativity so that we all start looking at deals in a similar way that you do. Great. So why don't you start off by telling us what type of investing you have traditionally been doing? What problems you encountered and why you've switched into this new model? Sure. As a bit of a background, prior to real estate investing, I worked for a company called Seth. That's the regional transportation authority that is around Philadelphia and the surrounding counties. So I.

Regular conversations created a lot of coordination between the three service board so they could focus on running the buses and trains that he was sort of healthy. Could've managed some of that behind the scenes stuff. You know, I think what we've been doing is Really just sort of focusing on making sure that the system is clean and safe. We're ready for when the writers want to come back, and they already study study kid up kicking riders ships during some of the peak of the pandemic When writers ship with the lowest the three operators really took the opportunity of taking vehicles out of service and do very deep sanitizing cleaning, But they're you know, they're they're up their game, and they continued to clean and sanitized on a bit of him on a date. Early basis, you know, but it's really kind of a compact between sort of, um, it's the cleaning protocols of the three of them have really ramped up, then the piece off of how they've adjusted their operations. So you know, Dr it's wearing mom have a shield between a bus driver and boarding packages that had the doing legal boarding. Moving people Tio contactless payments. So using your venture card as much as possible, Petra, encouraging people to use the venture at people out the transacting cash on and minimizing some of the physical contact. But this is the third, Peter that, and this is not unique to the transit world like that. The individual riders kind of responsibility of wearing a mosque, vacating some physical distancing. Thie operated at doing sort of began small things that Stacy signed on anything. Setout sort of out of commission if you will. But Curtis is on a mine age on train station platforms in bath boarding areas to remind people to keep that for the distance between each other and to be, although you know Cody it and, um and sort of responsible because well, we are all in this together. Let's take Ian that the sanitizing the clinic is critical. So we've put together each of the reporters have their own pieces of information that would compile kind of a regional ready to ride kind of documented all available on our Web night. A swell lot of statistics about sort of the ridership and the vis boards there. Also starting to grow out information about bus like a GPS. Putting out information about the peak ridership times that people could actually look and get out of our two hour kind of assessment on how crowded the vehicles people have some flexibility, taken a job out of their travel behaviour as well. And no decisions. Yet in terms of like economic decisions about sort of, you know, reallocating resource is may be needing. More, you know, hiring of sanitation crews and unless maybe operators or anything like that, coming up People have bean. You know that well being very creative, very flexible and sort of done some of that redeployment amongst some of their own banks and things like that already beat it throughout the rest of this calendar year, you know, with vehicle recovery, money and relief, buddy, you know that's able to kind of keep of the levels and the protocols in the cleaning The Clinton that's up to up to snap that people can be. They can continue to ride intent of this. Next year's budget. You know, we just started to kick off that longer term convocation about sort of what the resources might look like. If the economy going to come back how coffee that coming back and what will allow what were the dollars and actually look like it. Does that have to have any impact on the deficit. Their operations today right now is embarking on a collaborative with seven sports and other key stakeholders scenario planning looking at What the longer term outlook looks like It's not again. A lot of these questions are not unique, just with the transit well of. But looking at those issues, you know, full recovery and quick turnaround to a longer term Noah recovery. What is that being enchanted sort of the economy development? How people are working, where they working, and even sort of a public health perspective for the travel preferences and travel the mom? Well, Leeanne remember when one of the biggest worries was just sort of how to deal with what ride shares and how they were eating into a transit revenue. But of course, now it's Ah, that seems like so long ago in the junior, But but definitely you need the writers to come back, though, right? Absolutely, and we're ready for them. You know, we are looking at creative ways to part with some of the right chair. Guys think about different model the delivery service transit services across the entire region, So we'll try to be creative, inflexible. But we are ready and waiting for our writers to return 11.

"Easy he'll do the work so he won't have to stress this is home solutions with the wind three two powered by E. X. P. realty here's the wind three Bob Zack Meyer good morning and welcome back I'm in the studio with Jerry son to V. I. P. mortgage and also we have a special guest Steve Christie is the district for Pima county supervisor for our county and I thought with all the uncertainty the uncertainty in the market right now it would be really good to get somebody in there to kind of you know put a little you know not just Bob and Jerry saying you should go buy houses and and this is your buying opportunity that you know you it was impossible at the end of February in our whole entire MLS we had just over twenty two hundred houses that is a record low I've got data all the way back to nineteen eighty nine we've never been anywhere close to that and and we're actually a thousand homes less than we had a year ago at this time and and it's like oh my gosh I mean this is like crazy I'm so what's interesting is this coronavirus young whole bunch of people that it's definitely affecting not the value of real estate but the the closings we had all these closings lined up and I had to a buyer and a seller that we're totally unaffected by corona virus however the buyer was selling the home that they lived in and the buyers of that home had been laid off from their job and they couldn't buy the home anymore so what do you think that did to the new transaction basically two deals died because of one layoff of of a a person and and last month or I'm sorry last week in the week ending March twenty first this is a record in the United States three million two hundred eighty three thousand people filed unemployment that is the previous high ever in in nineteen eighty two was six hundred and ninety five thousand one week so it I mean we beat the old record by five hundred percent so is hosting what you don't want from the county standpoint or from your point of view you know and and then having a much wider view than we do what do you kind of see going on with this coronavirus just to add on to what you noticed about your inventory being at twenty two hundred units record a record low in February also in February the stock market was at a record high so you could see how quickly things involved and and the effect that that all of this has on so many different markets it on so many different levels let me be clear I I acknowledge and understand the threat and the very real and present danger we have with this coronavirus and that is it is serious and my biggest concern is that those vulnerable communities and we all know who they are that the first line medical responders and EMT folks said as well and particularly the aged community N. also those with underlying physicals since our medical symptoms they need the the the quickest and the most attentive response but there's another community to that is at risk and is suffering and that is the small business community and we've been dealing in in Pima county as a result of some statewide proclamations that have mandated some significant areas in the business community to to either alter their ability to operate or to be shut down I have found these very difficult from my standpoint as a former business owner and a business operator for many decades to have to deal with it I have to try to justify one in particular industry of course is the food service industry restaurants bars nightclubs X. cetera and I am getting emails and letters that are just gut wrenching from the owners of these establishments who asked me to say which I can't make my payroll I just let out let off half by work force and I don't see anything coming and I think the the issue too is we also in these proclamations have expiration dates for the for the imposition of these requirements only to be extended and what that does is is it in you to know market conditions what really negative negatively affects markets is uncertainty and business owners at deal with with that same issue and uncertainty in businesses leads to insolvency businesses cracked and at some point we've got to as a county and the country a pivot ourselves from this very I would say it mean many cases draconian imposition of regulations on on shutting down and controlling businesses and pointing at businesses as the problem and to pivoting to looking at ways as opening back up these businesses and including businesses as part of the solution I've seen evidence and my my my wife Susie is probably the best barometer as she goes out and about in the marketplace and shops and and goes to grocery stores and big boxes she's telling me that there are very fluid ways that these big box stores that have you know tens and tens of thousands of square feet hundreds of employees equally as many of customers thousands of things to choose from but they're able to control and manage the amount of people at any given time within these huge facilities and to check them out safely and proactively so they're not causing any social distancing problems or being at risk they're being very creative with takeout orders and things of this nature this is the type of thing that I believe that our county and our state and our country need to be focusing on is how we can be creative in trying to find ways to make things and businesses and employees work rather than looking for ways to shut them down and we just had a an emergency meeting yesterday with the Pima County Board of supervisors the extension of the prohibitions are in or restrictions on businesses has now been extended to April fourteenth that they say is to coincide with the governor's state and perhaps the president's I'm glad to see if that's if that is the case that the board of supervisors is supporting the governor and the president I've I question if that is the real reason but none the less here is another example of that uncertainty we the expiration date was originally set for March thirty first now it's April fourteenth and I'm sure when April fourteenth rolls around there's going to be a request to extend it even further businesses cannot operate with the uncertainty of when they can open up again and I've also asked the county to provide data and analysis about what this these proclamations to inhibit and shut down these businesses has caused economically in an impactful way on the county how many folks have been laid off how many businesses who are either temporarily or in a lot of cases permanently closed as a result of these mandates and shouldn't be with that we be looking for ways through the county level through its economic development department to assist a businesses and how to cope with these proclamations and restrictions rather than just barely saying in a very arbitrary and restrictive way we're we're gonna shut you down now at Thursday's meeting yesterday's meeting as far as we're here in the studio they really spent a lot of time on a new proclamation imposing penalties civil and and statewide penalties on businesses who violate the order to either alter their business or shut it down I told the board of supervisors we shouldn't even be talking about penalties because the proclamations themselves are the penalties you know anybody that owns a business a lot of people you know on a rental property look how much I pay you for rent you know it and and it's like oh yes that's pure profit yeah I mean the more the debt service on typically on a rental property but especially commercial property it can it's at least half of of of what you earn and it on the on the business your employees I mean I I used to run a pretty big ship by I had twenty two real estate agents in my brokerage and I had twenty eight W. to staff and I have four offices open sent on the first of every month I woke up and I had to make a hundred and twenty thousand dollars that month to break even to break even in thirty days I mean I had to make basically it just mind blowing and and you don't see thirty three thousand dollars a week to be able to stay to break even and not even make a profit for myself so it's other businesses that now they they have key employees I mean if if you're a business and you have the opportunity and you have the resources to hire somebody you can probably get the best access to labor right now that you've ever had and and let me just jump in real quick with two examples I think that the we should be using as a model in Pima county one is when I had my business OSHA would come in and do a courtesy non punitive inspection of your business two for two for compliance see if your business did it was doing and it had an effect a compliance measured up to conform with OSHA regulations they would do it as a courtesy they would give you advice there was no penalty no punitive measures at all and they come back in a month and say let's see how you did and and that is a very proactive way that a regulatory agency can work with businesses the regional Transportation Authority they've got a program that helps businesses were impacted by regional Transportation Authority projects how to how to meander through those logger heads of of having a a project to impeding your business so these are the type of things where I think the county needs to go from prohibitive to proactive I I agree and and one thing L. before we come up on the bottom of the hour news is the probably the best news that I've gotten every census coronavirus started I was on the phone this week with the gentleman who wants to buy a home for his mother and and he said I just think these interest rates are so low and and the now that people are now actively looking for homes that we can go out and finally by something and not get into a bidding war and run the price through the ceiling so that I mean there's a silver lining and everything but I I started to try to schedule an appointment with him and he had to push the appointment out more than we can as well I'm kind of curious single I'm going to work a hundred and twenty hours this week and it's like oh my gosh what do you do I mean everybody else is getting sidelined in your work in a hundred twenty hours he said I am an HVAC installer Messel who explain their conditioners right about now when the when the economy is in shambles and everybody's worried about you know hoarding money and stuff goes you know all those restaurants that are on the business is and I'm installing new vent hoods new environmental equipment new air handlers you know just all this stuff that they normally have to shut down their business to do this modification and they're using that time and you know and and and this is just super encouraging to me and the fact that the small business administration has come out with loans that have a three percent interest rate and a one year before the first payment is due and businesses are very resourceful and dealing with adversity like this and I say let them deal with it on their own I do too I couldn't agree more without prohibiting them from doing business let them figure out a way to get around it that's what made those people successful they came up with an idea and they put their money in their labor behind it we'll talk more after the news this is Tucson home solutions on K. and S. T. news I'm Karen McCue the CDC is imposed travel restrictions on the New York New Jersey Connecticut metro area in an effort to halt the spread of covert nineteen new Jersey's governor says he and his counterparts are on top of things three states and I know that New Jersey the obviously the best.
