Leading Broker Housing Incentives Fastest Route to Economic Boost Improved Credit Rating

first_img Hurricane Jose Not A Threat to The Bahamas, For Now Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppWith financial experts searching for ways to recover from last week’s stunning further downgrading of The Bahamas’ credit rating, a leading real estate broker today said one answer is right in front of our faces and up and down every block.According to Mario Carey, incentives to encourage a flurry of activity in the housing market, both new construction and sales of existing homes, will spur economic growth in a way that no other quick fix with long-term benefits can.“The housing market in Western societies is a leading predictor of economic health,” said Carey, founder and president of MCR, one of the country’s top property sales, leasing and management firms.“Strong sales mean a strong and healthy economy and when sales fall off, it’s just a matter of time until you see a slide in all aspects of an economy.”More than just an economic barometer, housing sales translate into jobs, he said.“Every home that is sold generates three full-time jobs, according to research commissioned by the National Association of Realtors in the U.S.,” said Carey. “Here that number would be even greater. In both places, the spin-offs from home ownership are enormous and create sustainable business activity. It is not just the fees generated by the move itself but the ongoing expenses the homeowner assumes – lawn and gardening services, painting, perhaps pool or roofing or plumbing, electrical, air-conditioning, furniture, décor, appliances. There are also the benefits to government from Stamp Tax. On a luxury property sale of $10 million, for example, government immediately collects $1 million in Stamp Tax. Incentives move people at every income level. If the Stamp Tax is reduced to 6% for a specified time, the buyer considering a purchase may be prompted to complete and save a substantial sum when they split the tax with the seller.”The highly successful broker who has handled more than one billion dollars in transactions in a career that spans three decades pointed to past successes when incentives were offered.“When the government offered Stamp Tax exemptions for first time home buyers, we saw a tremendous response,” Carey said. “Then when the first $250,000 of a purchase was exempted from real property tax and Stamp Tax, it was another incentive and when the interest on outstanding balances of real property tax forgiveness was announced, that drove hundreds to bring their past due tax bills up to date. Incentives work and there has never been a better or more important time to introduce them to spur the housing market which in turn will show diversification of the economy leading to a strengthening of our credit rating.”Carey has long argued that real estate should be recognized as the third pillar of the Bahamian economy, tying activity in the market to new construction, remodels, expansion and more. “If anyone doubts how critical home ownership is to a healthy economy, look at what happens when sales slump,” says Carey. “When the housing market collapsed in 2008, it took the rest of the economy down with it and we are still feeling the repercussions, though I believe the economy is beginning its slow climb back up for the middle to upper middle class family who was so hard hit by the economic freefall.“I encourage the government to appoint an ad hoc advisory committee comprised of real estate professionals, developers, financial institutions, the Bahamas Chamber of Commerce and a few successful businesspersons to report back in a relatively short period of time with recommendations for jumpstarting housing sales across the board,” said Carey. “I want to see the day when every Bahamian youngster coming out of school believes that he or she will own a home and that can be their reality. Home ownership is the single fastest route to economic prosperity. And it is one step we can take without damaging the environment or causing long-term negative impacts. It is time to explore the options.” Bahamian music legend gunned down at home in Turks and Caicos Recommended for you Bi-lateral talks with Bahamas to resume, UK gives green light to high-level TCI delegation Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items:bahamas, bahamas real estate, mario carey, mcrlast_img read more

Williams Auditorium transforms with New Community Focus

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppPROVIDENCIALES, TCI DECEMBER 15, 2014 — For over 13 years Williams Auditorium has been enjoyed as a premier and community events center in the Turks and Caicos Islands and come January 2015 the use of the facility will alter dramatically. Williams Auditorium will instead offer a low cost wholesale grocery option for the people of the islands.“It was not an easy decision to shift the community focus of Williams Auditorium, but with the significant slump in business and greatly reduced need for the 10,000 square feet premises for events; we decided it was a good move to allow Sunny Foods Retail & Wholesale to lease the space and move in,” said Hon. Delroy Williams, owner of Williams Auditorium.Golden Sunrays Ltd or Sunny Foods is nearly done with its modifications to Williams Auditorium and will bring wholesale grocery shopping to Five Cays and beyond. The lease to Sunny Foods Retail& Wholesale will last for tenyears.Originally, Sunny Foods was hoping to open the doors of its „cash and carry‟ in December 2014. The company, which brokered the lease to operate from Williams Auditorium for at least the next decade has added a new side entrance, overhauled the interior of the structure and graded the parking lot, which is one of the most expansive parking areas in the country.“I do understand the role Williams Auditorium has played in the lives of my people; Williams has hosted concerts, funerals, pageants, weddings, church services, awards ceremonies, banquets, political functions, events for justabout every ethnic group and there have been graduations – but this was a decision to see the building used on a regular basis,” explained Hon. Williams.It was in November 2000 that Williams Auditorium began construction; it took Williams eight months to go from clearing the two and a half acres of land, to erecting the steel, constructing the concrete siding and outfitting the interior for any event of any size hosting from locals to international celebrities. Award winning singers and performers like Beres Hammond, Beenie Man, Lucky Dube and Morgan Heritage; Gospel music royalty including ShirleyCesar, Donnie McClurkin, Israel Houghton and Juanita Bynum; International, regional and local music stars: Zenglen, Ronnie Butler, K.B., Local, Sagittarius “Winston Jennings”, Keno& Kaz, V6, Lee & the Force, Barbara Johnson, ByronLee & the Dragonaires, Richie Spice, Washington Williams and the Cooling Waters, Marlin Award winning Gospel artists: Simeon Outten and TCIs own Robyn Hinds and the nation‟s most beautiful, intelligent and talented people.“It‟s so funny to think about how Williams Auditorium came to being. I was a part of the Provo Day Committee and we needed a venue after some fall out with another spot we had rented. Some members of the Committee were soupset by the situation that I personally vowed that by the next year, we would have our own place to host Provo Day.”In July 2001, Williams Auditorium was ready for use and ready for Provo Day. The ability of Hon. Williams to deliver on this pledge has now become a hallmark characteristic for the businessman/politician who is well regarded for his ability to „get the job done.‟ “I know the venue will be missed; particularly for organizations like Clement Howell High School which has held its graduation ceremony here year after year, yet I believe there is hope for a new Williams Auditorium; don‟t count me out. We can come back when there is a market demand; we can build again.”The official handover of Williams Auditorium to Sunny Foods Retail & Wholesale was on Monday December 15, 2014.

Government to advance Heritage Tourism in the Bahamas

first_img Related Items:#HeritageTourism, #magneticmedianews, #NationalMuseum Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppBahamas, June 19th 2017 – Nassau – The new Minnis-administration says that they will be focusing on the country’s heritage tourism potential. Speaking at the recent Bahamas Hotel and Tourism Association (BHTA) Board of Directors and Membership meeting last Thursday, Prime Minister Minnis said, “Ours is a richly textured culture. Our history, music, food, dance, art, craft and our folkways are distinctly different. We must fully capitalize on our culture and heritage to add a more vibrant visitor experience.” As such, the government’s plans will include restoring and maintaining many of Bahamas’ historic sites; completing The National Museum of the Bahamas; building a Native Food Market to feature local art and facilitating the development of heritage and eco-tours throughout the islands.Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis said, “A Native Food Market will welcome scores of Bahamians and tourists alike.” Adding also, “It will provide business opportunities and allow many Bahamians to sell their goods and products. Just as a previous FNM Administration created Fish Fry and a new Straw Market, my Administration will build a Native Food Market Over-the-Hill. Many cities and countries around the world boast native food markets.”Speaking on the National Museum, Dr. Minnis said, “Cruise ship passengers throughout the world visit museums,” Adding, “Imagine if New Providence can provide more of these experiences?” However, the Prime Minister admitted, “We are nowhere near monetizing the number of cruise ship passengers we have coming to The Bahamas. We can do so through heritage experiences.”The Clifton Heritage National Park in New Providence, Mount Alvernia in Cat Island, The Columbus Monument in San Salvador and plantation ruins on other Family islands are some of the other historic sites to be named throughout the Bahamas. Story By: Kay-Marie Fletcher #MagneticMediaNewslast_img read more

Vinicius and Ramos save Real Madrid vs Valladolid

first_imgWith a deviated goal by Vinicius in the final minutes of the match, Real Madrid was saved from another boring result against Valladolid at the Bernabeu.We can’t deny that Real Madrid is currently going through its darkest moment since Zinedine Zidane and Cristiano Ronaldo left, but newcomer Santiago Solari has at least understood how important Vinicius is to this club.Florentino Perez is many things, but the man is not stupid and he has recently proved that he doesn’t pay €45 million for any player as he did for the young Brazilian.This Saturday’s performance from Real Madrid before the 73rd minute, proved that Los Blancos were in urgent need of a player who helped his teammates wake up and the Flamengo product is just that.It took him only a couple of minutes to make the Bernabeu applaud him and it took him 10 to get the first goal of the match, even if the credit didn’t go to him after the goal was scored.Los Blancos didn’t have a proper player who could occupy the left wing when Ronaldo left, but Vinicius proved that he was born to play on that side of the pitch and he was able to accelerate the pace of all his teammates with his creativity and hunger for success.Vinicius y 10 más. #HalaMadrid pic.twitter.com/ylvzBKlk2G— Real Madrid (@realmadridnote) November 3, 2018The fans at the Santiago Bernabeu ended up booing the players after a first half with no goals and very little emotions, Santiago Solari was able to study the weak points that this squad has during that time.Midfielders Luka Modric and Toni Kroos will mostly remain static if they don’t have players up front who are constantly moving and looking for a space to create football, but the biggest flop today was Casemiro as he looked extremely tired during the minutes he played and Solari was quick to notice this.Isco Alarcon came in during the second half to replace the Brazilian, the Spaniard was instantly positive for the game as he was fresh and had new ideas to help the squad.But the Spanish giants were still lacking that acceleration up front that Vinicius had, but Santiago Solari wanted to seem like he was going to take the player’s upbringing very carefully and he wouldn’t expose him too much because he still fears that the Santiago Bernabeu could intimidate him.But this player is very confident, he was eager to come in and prove that he is worthy to play for Real Madrid and also prove Julen Lopetegui wrong.Fati and Suarez shine against Valencia at Camp Nou Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 15, 2019 With a mesmerizing first half from Ansu Fati and a brace from Luis Suarez in the second half, Barcelona demolished Valencia at Camp Nou.Valencia…🏁 FT: @RealMadrid 2-0 @realvalladolid (Kiko Olivas (og) 83′, @SergioRamos 88′ (p)).#Emirates | #RMLiga pic.twitter.com/KKsvc6gWk4— Real Madrid C.F. 🇬🇧🇺🇸 (@realmadriden) November 3, 2018The goal in question came from a pass that Vinicius made which could’ve also been confused with a low shot, the attempt hit defender Olivas and completely distracted Valladolid’s goalkeeper.It really didn’t matter who had scored the goal, Vinicius celebrated it as if it was his own and the whole Santiago Bernabeu crowd cheered his triumphant presentation in this mythical stadium.After the first goal, all the Real Madrid players seemed to have lifted a giant weight from their shoulders and pretty much all of them started played considerably better.A few minutes before the end of the match, even Karim Benzema showed a different attitude and got fouled inside the box to give Real Madrid a penalty.Skipper Sergio Ramos delivered from the spot with a cold-blooded Panenka shot and sealed Los Blancos’ final 2-0 victory that could have never happened if Vinicius hadn’t played the few minutes he did today.It’s clear that he is the one who should start the matches and not Gareth Bale, who proved today that he is no longer a good option for Real Madrid as he wasn’t able to produce a single dangerous moment for his squad during the 70 minutes he played.⏱ | 0-0 | The second half has started at the Bernabéu!

If we let them counter-attack like we did [against Newcastle] I don’t think we have a chance because they are really strong in that. So we have to improve so many things.“But on the other hand, we have 51 points and that’s unbelievable. We played the first part of the season unbeaten – that’s all good and we feel it, it feels really good.“The only little problem we have is the second part of the season starts [on Saturday]. What we wanted to do when we started in the summer was to create a basis in the first part of the season for the second part.“We’ve created that basis and now we have to work with it. What we did so far, we will do again and again and again. We’ll really be completely focused on the next game.“We need tunnel vision, all of us, being in the situation – dig in and try to make the best of each game.

Flag retirement program degins across San Diego County

first_img SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – The county and city of San Diego will begin a program Friday enabling residents to dispose of old U.S. flags in accordance with federal code.County Supervisor Greg Cox announced the County Flag Retirement Box program last month in honor of Flag Day and in advance of the Fourth of July, saying it will help residents “dispose of old or tattered flags with the proper respect they deserve.”Starting Friday, residents will be able to drop off their old flags in designated boxes at county libraries, as well as the city of San Diego’s public libraries. Local Boy Scout troops will frequently collect the boxes and deliver them to local American Legion posts and associated nonprofits that will conduct flag retirement ceremonies.“County Supervisor Greg Cox’s Flag Retirement Box program will give San Diegans the opportunity to retire their American flags with the dignity and respect they deserve,” City Councilman Chris Cate said. “The American flag is a symbol of our freedom, and it is wonderful that all city of San Diego libraries will be participating in this program.”The program is similar to one promoted by the National Association of Counties, of which Cox is president. According to the NACo, the program has distributed roughly 700 flag boxes to more than 500 counties around the country to ensure proper flag disposal.

Senate Passes Water Resources Development Act House Action Pending

first_imgThe U.S. Senate earlier Thursday afternoon passed a two-year Water Resources Development Act (WRDA). The American Soybean Association (ASA)  supports enactment of the two-year WRDA reauthorization bill as a follow-up on the significant reforms and achievements of the WRDA bill enacted in 2014 and to get Congress back to the regular schedule of waterways infrastructure program reauthorizations every two years.The Senate WRDA bill (S. 2848) authorizes $9 billion for water projects recommended by the Army Corps of Engineers, including inland waterways navigation infrastructure, as well as restoration for the Everglades, the Great Lakes and other areas.Of most interest to soybean farmers are the authorizations provided for inland waterways navigation and harbor deepening projects. The authorizations are still subject to annual appropriations to allow the funds to be executed and implemented by the Corps of Engineers.On the House side, Transportation and Infrastructure Chairman Bill Shuster has indicated his hope to be able to get their version of the WRDA bill (HR 5303) on the House floor next week. The House T&I Committee passed their bill back in May. The House and Senate versions are similar on ports and waterways provisions, but differ on the contentious issue of providing aid for Flint, Mich. and other communities with drinking water infrastructure issues. If the House is able to pass their bill, a conference committee could convene during the lame duck session in December.last_img read more

Baby Jesus stolen from lawn display

first_imgSheryl Black and her family woke to a surprise Christmas morning, one far less pleasant than gifts tucked beneath a tree: The Jesus figure had been swiped from its manger. Black, who spent the night at her parents’ home in Cascade Park, said the nativity scene was complete when the family returned shortly after 1 a.m. from a Christmas Eve service at Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. When they woke in the morning, its centerpiece was missing.“Every year, we put it out in the front yard,” Black said.Black said her parents have lived at the intersection of Southeast 125th Avenue and McGillivray Boulevard for 22 years. She said the manger scene has been a tradition for about 15 years. “It’s insane that someone would stoop so low to take baby Jesus,” Black said. “The meaning of Christmas and it’s gone.”last_img read more

Weather Eye What season are we in with a high of 39

first_imgThe first couple days of winter have been kind of a trip, eh? Oh, did I say winter? I meant spring; at least that’s what the calendar shows me. We managed to get some snow in the higher elevations and a mix here at city levels at times for the fourth week in a row.My high temperature here in Salmon Creek on Wednesday was only 39 degrees, with rain and occasional wet snowflakes. The outlook at this late afternoon writing is that Clark County could see a brief shot of wet snow as the stationary weather front moves eastward.At 5 p.m. Wednesday, most locations in Clark County above 500 feet were getting some snow. This follows an unprecedented event over parts of Western Oregon. Eugene had over 7 inches of snow Wednesday in some areas. Snow fell steadily in Corvallis, as well, and Salem recorded measurable snow.Now, this all took place Wednesday with temperatures in the Puget Sound region bumping 50 degrees and parts of Eastern Oregon in the 60s. Go figure. And if there were any concerns with our local mountain snow pack, that is out the window, as over 2 feet of snow fell overnight Tuesday into Wednesday. .So, what’s next? The storm track stays mainly to our south, allowing us to be in a showery pattern and cool but increasing high temperatures, getting maybe somewhat back to seasonal normals. Saturday may be the driest day. Next week, the storm track moves north, and, yep, more rain.last_img read more
