I'm hoping to get some feedback from the community about this content.
This is a really in depth market analysis. It happens to be of the Dallas metro area, but even if you're not interested in investing in Dallas, take a look! I am hoping to understand if this type of data an analysis is useful to the BP community, and your opinion is really important.
If you do take a look at this report, please take 3 minutes and fill out this survey! It would be a huge help to us here on the BP team.
@Dave Meyer while interesting at first glance, that report is 73 pages. that's a little bit too long, IMHO. And frankly, while I can see a large market for this kind of info (especially here on BP) I believe it will lead to a lot of people being paralyzed by analysis. TOO MUCH INFO, even though it's all very fascinating and whatnot.
I have to agree with Patrick. I got 5 pages in and I was like whoa. Is that really true?
I stopped right there and realized it would take me HOURS on end to read it and fact check it and understand your research vs everybody else's research.
The 70+ pages are insane.
@Dave Meyer This is insane bro...have you ever heard the phrase "If I would have had more time I would have written a shorter letter."
This is a punishing read for anyone and not very helpful. Get this on 2-3 pages and you're golden.
I filled out the survey. Happy to answer more questions to improve the project long term.
Growth is marginal. Listings down a 1/3, not in any market known to man kind!
new home construction is up, can’t hire the people. My guess is still going on to may/June.
btw really bad timing to release such info. (Coming from Indiana university grad)
Thank you all for this feedback, it's extremely helpful! Would appreciate any more if people are willing to read. I totally get the 'this is too much info' feedback, that makes sense. What is the most useful data in here to you all?
@Dave Meyer I think a video explaining what each stat means would be helpful. Maybe I’m the dummy in the room but a lot of the stats mean nothing to me as I don’t understand them.
@Dave Meyer I did also find this to be too much information, but I was curious on which data should be important to me as an investor and why. It seemed an inch deep and a mile wide. The job outlook and employer sections in particular, confused me. The job outlook data included 2020, but the top employers list on slide 37 was from 2017. Slide 28 included local gov't data but 29 did not include any gov't job data as the footnote indicated.
