Brendan King (00:38): Hey, what's going on? It's Brendan King fromthe Brendan King Group at Real.
Jack Palermo(00:41): Jack Palermo from the Brendan King Group atReal.
Brendan King (00:43): This is episode numberone of Real Vegas.
Jack Palermo(00:47): Anything and everything.
Brendan King (00:49): Yeah, well, what's goingon? So, we decided after all this time.
Jack Palermo(00:53): 41 probably shows of theunnamed show.
Brendan King (00:56): To give a name to theshow. So, the new name for the show is Real Vegas.
Jack Palermo(01:02): Anything, everything.
Brendan King (01:03): Excuse me. I do have acold today. So, if I have to clear my throat a few times, I already... Ah, Idon't think I'm contagious.
Jack Palermo(01:09): Okay. Okay.
Brendan King (01:10): I don't think I'mcontagious. But, of course, if you want, by text, any kind of information, textVIP to 702-553-1955. Get it on our list. We'll let you know all sorts of thingsgoing on in Las Vegas, whether it's real estate or stuff going on.
Jack Palermo(01:28): Don't forget to followus on Instagram at Brendan King Group. At Brendan King Group on Instagram.
Brendan King (01:33): Yeah, and of course, ifyou're looking for a team to join or somewhere to go regarding being an agent,go to join the bkg.com, www.jointhebkg.com, and definitely would love to haveyou at least come by and have an interview and see if you fit the mold.
Jack Palermo(01:51): Yeah. Come by.
Brendan King (01:52): So, Real Vegas.Definitely feels odd to say that after saying unnamed so many times.
Jack Palermo(01:58): Unnamed show.
Brendan King (02:00): But, the idea is just tomake sure we tell you as much as we can about what's going on in Vegas. Wehaven't decided, every week, every other week.
Jack Palermo(02:07): Yeah, we don't know.
Brendan King (02:08): But, the main thing iswe're going to practice full of things to do in town for anybody visiting orhopefully who lives here.
Jack Palermo(02:16): Yes. Absolutely.
Brendan King (02:17): That we do sell realestate.
Jack Palermo(02:18): We're going to kind ofgive you a breakdown of like right now we're going to give you a breakdown ofwhat's going on in the summer and stuff [inaudible 00:02:23]-
Speaker 2 (02:23): Hey, but first guys,just to let you know, you guys had an incredible event last week.
Brendan King (02:29): Yeah. So, we did have anevent "How To Double Your Business and Income." Event went reallywell, we had lots of great speakers, and there they are. Michael England,Caroline from the team, Dustin, Brent, and some other guy in the middle. Eventwent really well, we're sitting in front of the same sign right now that wewere standing there that day. It went well.
Jack Palermo(02:53): Yeah, I was reallyinformed [inaudible 00:02:55].
Brendan King (02:54): Our space looks reallynice, had an event.
Jack Palermo(02:57): Yeah, it did.
Brendan King (02:58): So, we plan on having alot more of these, both for other agents and clients as well. But, yeah, it waschock full of a ton of information. Honestly, I was a little, I was tired.
Jack Palermo(03:10): Yeah. Yeah. I mean,yeah, there was a lot of information, a lot of information.
Brendan King (03:14): Two hours of justendless information, but we plan on absolutely having more of these and doingsome things for clients too. Hopefully some special speakers, maybe even do alive podcast with an audience. We'll see.
Jack Palermo(03:26): Ooh, we'll see. Yeah.
Brendan King (03:28): Hey, look, there it is.
Jack Palermo(03:30): But, yeah, looked greatthat team.
Brendan King (03:31): Look at that. Nice shotof the team. Actually, a really great shot of the team. So, yeah, it wentreally, really well. We were very happy with it. We're picky, we like to makethings as perfect as we can, we learned a lot from it and I think it's justgoing to get better from here too.
Jack Palermo(03:47): For sure.
Brendan King (03:48): So, whole, wow, geez.So, much going on.
Jack Palermo(03:48): Tell me about it.
Brendan King (03:51): So much to talk about.So, one of the big things is the economy. There is just endless questions aboutthis-
Jack Palermo(03:51): Endless.
Brendan King (04:00): ... every day. Whetherit's my wife or even my kids or clients, or I turn the TV on or open my phone-
Jack Palermo(04:09): [inaudible 00:04:09].
Brendan King (04:09): ... or look at Instagramat Brendan King Group. There's definitely a lot going on. So, fed justincreased the fed rate by 0.75%, which is the highest since 1994 that they'veever increased the rate. So, that means when the dot com boom happened, when9/11 happened, when COVID started, that's by far the highest they've everincreased it in a one full swoop.
Jack Palermo(04:09): Yeah. One swoop.
Brendan King (04:37): Usually it's 0.25 or 0.5max, and that was the plan originally, was 0.5, and that ended up changing to0.75 last minute, when they felt that really inflation was not calming down.What was the last that you paid for your gas?
Jack Palermo(04:54): 5.15.
Brendan King (04:54): 5.15.
Jack Palermo(04:54): Oh, yeah.
Brendan King (04:55): That's Costco.
Jack Palermo(04:56): That's Costco.
Brendan King (04:57): Yeah. I was going to saythat.
Speaker 2 (04:58): You wait in that longline?
Jack Palermo(05:00): No, I go on in themorning, on my way in. So, like at 7:30, there's still a line, but you can pullin there and you're not like caught.
Brendan King (05:07): Yeah. I literally don'tknow how much gas costs because I have an electric car. No, but I don't mean itthat way. So, even my wife is like, "Oh, my God, I can't believe how muchI pay for gas." And I was like, "I don't even know how much gascosts."
Jack Palermo(05:18): Yeah.
Brendan King (05:19): But, when I see thenumber difference lately, I'm like, "Oh, my God. Like 4.50, then 5, then5.15, 5.50. It's crazy."
Jack Palermo(05:27): It is crazy.
Brendan King (05:28): So, this is made to hopeto curb that 0.75 increase to the fed. There's also some downsize to that.Mortgage interest rates-
Jack Palermo(05:39): Go up a little bit.
Brendan King (05:39): ... did tick up tonearly six at one point and then came down again.
Jack Palermo(05:43): Came down again.
Brendan King (05:44): Dustin had texted me andhe's like, "Hey, they're down to 5.75, and then they were up to six, andthen they were down to 4.5." So, the big thing you have to know is the fedrate does not directly correlate with mortgage rates. They're related, but notdirectly.
Jack Palermo(06:03): Yeah. But, they'rerelated, but separate in the same sense [inaudible 00:06:06].
Brendan King (06:05): Yeah. The treasury, the10 year treasury is more in line with what's going on with the mortgage rates,and then of course, mortgage backed securities. These lenders have to turnaround and sell these loans to somebody who's willing to buy them. If they'vegot a package of 4.5 interest rates, but inflation's at seven or interest ratesare at seven. Yeah. So, in the end it does mean mortgages are more expensiveright now.
Jack Palermo(06:31): Yes.
Brendan King (06:32): But, what the funnything is, what's the deal with inventory?
Jack Palermo(06:36): Inventory is climbing.
Brendan King (06:37): But, is it still low?
Jack Palermo(06:38): It's still low. No, it'sstill a seller's market 100%.
Brendan King (06:41): That's the weird thingis, "Okay, great. Do you not buy?" It depends. If your cash flow issqueezed, probably not a good idea. But, if you're still in a good cash flowposition, the nice thing is if rates do come back down or they don't, you maylock in historically lower than where they may be. Or if they do change, youcan always refinance.
Jack Palermo(07:02): Exactly.
Brendan King (07:02): Of course, pay attentionif you're refinancing. Some people just keep refing, but it's got to makesense. If you don't plan on staying in that house for the amount of time thatit takes to recoup the costs of closing costs, then don't do it. But, hey, youmay be better off now at 5.5 than you are by waiting.
Jack Palermo(07:21): Yeah. Totally. Because Imean, who knows where it's going to go.
Brendan King (07:24): Yeah. I don't see acrash, but it doesn't mean it can't happen. I do think we're going to see amassive chill out.
Jack Palermo(07:31): For sure.
Brendan King (07:32): What's the deal rightnow?
Jack Palermo(07:33): Stabilization.
Brendan King (07:35): Buyers can buy.
Jack Palermo(07:36): Yeah. Buyers can buy.You're not on like 18 offers, you're not fighting as a buyer, you're notfighting with other like multiple, multiple offers right now. You're stillfighting with maybe a one or two or-
Brendan King (07:47): Max. Yeah.
Jack Palermo(07:48): But, it's been a loteasier on the buy side.
Brendan King (07:52): In order to save you thetime right now, because we want to get to the good stuff and all theentertainment, we do have a blog that we're now hosting that, it's just aboutthe current state of the economy. So, we'll have a direct link to that, andthis will be updated on a regular basis with all the most recent articles andthings that are anybody who's speaking about this right now, we're going to addthose articles to that blog. So, that's a direct place you can go to everysingle day to always get the most updated. Then we did do a BKG round table-
Jack Palermo(08:23): Yeah, that was fun.
Brendan King (08:23): ... about the market.So, that link will also be there as well. As well as every single Monday, youcan always get our Monday market update where we just talk about the numbersevery week, and it's at least at a certain point every week and relatable tohistory over the past couple years. That's very helpful. My client texts meyesterday, he's like, "I want the market update."
Jack Palermo(08:45): Yeah. Right.
Brendan King (08:46): He's like, "Whereis it?" He's like, "I need to see it."
Jack Palermo(08:47): Total. I get it all thetime.
Brendan King (08:48): Yeah. So, he definitelygets it. So, don't forget. Text market to 702-553-1955, and then you can getthat every Monday to Wednesday. It's usually in that span where you can get themarket, excuse me, via text. Text market to 702-553-1955.
Jack Palermo(08:48): 1955.
Brendan King (09:11): That page, in myopinion, the current state of the economy page, will be your go-to for the nextfew months.
Jack Palermo(09:17): For sure.
Brendan King (09:17): We're just going to fillthat with the most recent market update, and all of them. So, they'll have adirect link that'll have all of them and then the round tables in there andeverything's going to be in there. Let's get to the fun stuff though.
Jack Palermo(09:30): Yes.
Brendan King (09:31): Sports. What is going onwith this, Jack?
Jack Palermo(09:34): The Golden Knights haveswung for the fences and hired Bruce Cassidy, who was just let go from theBoston Bruins. Bruce Cassidy is a great coach. I mean, he is amazing. I mean,he one that made the Stanley Cup final in 2019. He won the Jack Adams coach ofthe year award. He's great. I think he's going to do well.
Brendan King (09:53): Why did the Bruins lethim go?
Jack Palermo(09:56): They didn't go as far asthey thought that they would.
Brendan King (09:57): Yeah. That's always thecase, I feel like. If the team doesn't go and the public wants them to go-
Jack Palermo(10:03): It's always got to be afall guy.
Brendan King (10:03): Yeah.
Jack Palermo(10:04): Then it's always acoach.
Brendan King (10:05): It's like, that's thefunny thing about sports sometimes is even when someone's good at their job,they lose it anyway because they didn't get where they were supposed to get.
Jack Palermo(10:11): Right.
Brendan King (10:12): But, then now we gethim.
Jack Palermo(10:13): Yeah. It's going to begreat. I think he's going to put a fire under the players and I think they'regoing to be good.
Brendan King (10:19): He looks like a prettytough dude. So, yeah. Jack Adams Award coach of the year, which didn't ouroriginal coach...
Jack Palermo(10:29): Gerard Gallant.
Brendan King (10:29): Gerard Gallant won.
Jack Palermo(10:30): He did win coach of theyear in 2018.
Brendan King (10:33): Look what happened tohim.
Jack Palermo(10:34): First year. Well, healmost took-
Brendan King (10:35): Same thing. It was thesame thing.
Jack Palermo(10:36): Yeah.
Brendan King (10:36): Same deal.
Jack Palermo(10:37): He got hired by theRangers and he almost took them to the final [inaudible 00:10:40].
Brendan King (10:39): Yeah. That's the crazything that I actually sometimes miss Gallant-
Jack Palermo(10:43): Yeah, me too.
Brendan King (10:43): ... I have to admit. So,I'm excited. I know we're all excited. So, Bruce Cassidy, new coach. Let's seehow it goes.
Jack Palermo(10:49): Let's see how it goes.
Brendan King (10:50): I think it'll be good.
Jack Palermo(10:51): I think so too.
Brendan King (10:52): I want to see a playoffgame again at home.
Jack Palermo(10:54): No doubt. Yes.
Brendan King (10:56): Then this one, wealready talked about a bit ago on the-
Jack Palermo(11:00): NBA.
Brendan King (11:01): On the old unnamed show.
Jack Palermo(11:03): Oh, yes.
Brendan King (11:04): LeBron James-
Jack Palermo(11:06): Yeah.
Brendan King (11:06): ... wants to own an NBAfranchise in Las Vegas.
Jack Palermo(11:10): He sure does.
Brendan King (11:12): This is not going tohappen while he's a player.
Speaker 2 (11:14): You're not allowed,right? You're not allowed.
Jack Palermo(11:16): You're not allowed. No.So, they're looking to expand by 2024, 30 to 32 teams, Vegas and Seattle arekind of like the two probably go-tos. Vegas for sure is going to happen.Seattle, they tried it before, it really didn't work out. So, I don't know whythey would want to put it back there, but who knows? But, LeBron James backsbuying a franchise would be pretty awesome for Las Vegas, I think, and I'm noteven a LeBron fan.
Brendan King (11:41): I was just going to sayif Jordan will own a team.
Jack Palermo(11:44): Oh, my God. He does
Brendan King (11:49): Yeah.
Jack Palermo(11:50): Yes, the CharlotteHornets.
Brendan King (11:50): Oh, the Hornets. That'sright.
Jack Palermo(11:50): Yes.
Brendan King (11:50): I did know that.
Jack Palermo(11:50): Yes he does.
Brendan King (11:51): Yeah. I'm still a fan ofthe situation.
Jack Palermo(11:54): Yeah. I'm a fan of thecity of Las Vegas, gaining an NBA team, 100%.
Brendan King (11:54):
Jack Palermo(11:57): We'll take that.
Brendan King (11:58): Which we'll get tobecause, later on, we may know where this possibly ends up because of somefuture developments that they're working on that could bring a 20,000 seatarena.

Jack Palermo(12:39): I liked watching theworld cup. I get excited for that. I like watching the countries play eachother, but I'm not an everyday avid soccer watcher.
Brendan King (12:46): I love soccer.
Jack Palermo(12:46): Football.
Brendan King (12:47): Football?

Brendan King (14:15): It's better-
Jack Palermo(14:15): Over soccer.
Brendan King (14:16): I was just going to say,"Was it better than soccer?" I don't think it is. But, what is it?The record number of people? Did we know that number? We don't, but supposedlyit'll be a record number of people involved in the event. So, some great thingsto do this summer we wanted to hit on. Obviously, now that the heat is-

Jack Palermo(38:23): Awning or a roof.
Brendan King (38:25): Well...
Jack Palermo(38:25): [inaudible 00:38:25],you definitely need a roof.

Brendan King (38:47): ... umbrellas now.

Jack Palermo(38:49): Pop it down.
Brendan King (38:55): ... and move it out theway. Then of course-
Jack Palermo(38:57): Outdoor curtains.
Brendan King (38:58): Which is so day bed.
