Transcript Snippet: “ Tego:
Um, I want to go back to, let’s see, you were talking about BlackRock. I wanna talk about the, the, some of the trends. These are some big trends that, that we’re seeing out there. Macro trends or micro trends, macro macro. Okay. Macro in, in the housing. And let’s just say the housing world in general, there’s a, there’s a trend called, uh, single family build to rent, and you’ve probably heard of it and single family build to rent. And so what’s happening is you’ve got these companies that are, you know, uh, venture capital, uh, hedge fund funded companies that are going out there, no building a neighborhood of 200 single family homes, and they’re not selling them, they’re renting them. So single family built to rent is a, is a trend that has been going on in a lot of other markets. And I’ve learned recently that it’s coming to Albuquerque as well, where you’ve got these companies that are gonna come in.
Tego:
They’re gonna build a whole bunch of homes and not one of ’em is for sale. They’re all for rent. And you could say, that’s a good thing. You could say, it’s a bad thing. It just is what it is.

Is building going to be an option again? Will commodities come down? Uh, what, what, what sort of thing will, will that create? If people are not able to buy the homes that they want, what, what do, what do you think they do to go? That’s just kind of an open ended question. That that’s, that is, I mean, that is the big question is, I mean, everybody’s got li live somewhere, right? And there’s gotta be some creative solutions and, and the truth is we do need our policy makers to step up. I hear, okay. Let, let’s just throw, let’s just throw the, the city under the bus here just a little bit. I hear that.
Tego:
You’re not under the, how about that? Oh, we just went over the hour, um, that, that, uh, you know, getting building permits done through the city is a pain.
