    #CREPN 26 Multifamily Markets - Primary vs Secondary & Tertiary

    in Real Estate

    National publications about rent growth, vacancy rates and appreciation can make the news about Multifamily sound GREAT all over.  The truth is; all Real Estate is local; the news in San Francisco, is not the same experience in Topeka.

    Understanding the market; demographics & characteristics of the neighborhoods are essential to any predictable outcome when investing in real estate.  

    John Wilhoit has held positions with Maryland Housing Fund, AIMCO and HUD which provide him a tremendous background from which to draw from when assessing the different market tiers and their unique characteristics.

    “Who” are the people in the market?

    Primary Markets

    What is population size of a Primary Market?
    What is the Median Income?
    How many Primary Markets are there?
    Where are the Primary Markets?
    What features in an MSA define a Primary Market?
    Return on Investment expectations in a Primary Market

    Where are the 24 Hour Cities?

    Secondary Markets

    Caution: there is a 5 min. dead space at the very beginning where my mic was muted. I apologise for the inconvenience.

    The statehouse senate in Topeka goes into record breaking session, and we'll be playing audio clips and commenting on some of the most memorable moments.  The debate held today will be around how to raise tax revenues to fill the $400 million deficit immediately facing the #Brownback led #FailedExperiment.

    We finish with professor Christopher Parker on Talking Stick tv defining Tea Party "conservatives" as "reactionairies" and how he came up with delineating the Republicans among the false "revolutionaires."  

    This should be of particular interest to those in the Kansas "Red Pen Briagade" who are trying to destroy popular social services available to the working poor in Kansas.

    Mike Bell - Revivalist - Bell Ministry - Topeka, KS

    in Christianity

    Host for Show - Brian Christian

    Bell Ministry was launched on January 1st 2005, as the Evangelistic Ministry of Mike Bell. Mike, who is the Founder of Bell Ministry, became a Christian in April 2001 when he had a powerful encounter with Holy Spirit. Since that time, Mike has been passionately pursuing his calling of seeing the Kingdom of God forcefully advanced and the works of the devil destroyed through the anointing of Holy Spirit.

    In 2007, Mike had the privilege of meeting Oral Roberts at his home in Newport Beach, California. It was then that Oral laid hands on Mike and imparted the gift of healing into his ministry. Mike was mentored and discipled by Oral until he went home to be with the Lord in 2009.

    Mike has had the privilege of preaching in the Ukraine and across the United States of America to thousands of people at Churches, Conferences, Camp Meetings, Outreaches, Door to Door Evangelism, Tent Revivals and Gospel Crusades. In all these meetings, he has witnessed countless decisions and rededications for Jesus Christ. There has also been many healing's that have taken place. Through the anointing of Holy Spirit, Mike has seen the deaf hear, the blind see, the crippled walk, cancers have disappeared without a trace, tumors have dissolved, diabetes and parkinson’s disease healed and so much more for the glory of God.

    In 2012, Mike married his beautiful wife and partner in Ministry - Megan. It was in February of 2014 that God spoke to Mike and called him back into the Evangelistic field. God told Mike, “I want you to bring My identity back into My Church. 

    Today, Mike and Megan, travel wherever God leads with a burning passion to reach the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ, to ignite the Church with a zeal to share their faith and see the power of Holy Spirit demonstrated through signs, wonders, and miracles.
