Midland, Texas is the hottest housing market in U.S.

Midland, Texas is the hottest housing market in the nation for the second month in a row, according to data from Realtor.com, knocking California heavyweights like Los Angeles and San Francisco from their traditional perches atop the thermometer.

It looks like California finally overheated, registering only four markets in the top 20 as opposed to two months ago when more than half of the list was located in the Golden State.

"The California housing market has been hot for a long time – but maybe too hot. Our May hotness index further confirms we’re seeing that as prices in California continue to soar, people are increasingly looking elsewhere," Realtor.com Director of Economic Research Javier Vivas said in the report.

"As we continue into what we expect to be the hottest home-buying season in history, look for a wide variety of locales to remain red-hot," he added.

The report also indicates spillover demand in more affordable metros. Seven Midwest metros made it in the top 20, which is the highest number since Realtor.com started taking temperatures (see full list below).

US Senator Denied Entry To Facility Holding Children Of Illegal Immigrants

U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley

A United States senator trying to gain access to a federal facility housing immigrant children in Texas near the Mexico border and talk to a supervisor has been turned away after police were summoned.

U.S. Sen. Jeff Merkley, a Democrat from Oregon, told one of the police officers in Brownsville that U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ team and the Office of Refugee Resettlement are trying to hide what’s happening behind the doors of the former Walmart.

Merkley’s office posted video on Facebook of the encounter Sunday evening. A supervisor at the facility told Merkley he was not allowed to make any statements, and referred him to a phone number of the public affairs office in the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in Washington.

4 area real estate companies get new headquarters – Philadelphia Business Journal

Four of the region’s largest real estate companies have or are about to move into new headquarters after spending years in the same buildings.

The moves reflect the evolution of the companies. All have grown in stature, some have expanded their geographic reach, shifted strategies or refined their existing business plans. The new offices place them in spaces that showcase where they have come, where they are and where they are headed.

The first to make a move was Brandywine Realty Trust, which relocated last fall into 46,000 square feet into its FMC Tower at Cira Centre South in Philadelphia. The real estate investment trust spent nearly a decade at 555 Lancaster Ave. in Radnor. While Brandywine started out as a suburban office landlord, the company has divested of most its suburban properties to focus on trophy office space in urban areas and development — such as its Schuylkill Yards project — in three markets: Philadelphia, Washington, D.C., and Austin, Texas.

While it now makes its headquarters in Philadelphia, Brandywine still has staff in Radnor. The company declined to participate in this article, according to a spokeswoman.

After spending the last 10 years in 12,000 square feet at 200 Witmer Road in Horsham, BET Investments moved in January to 16,300 square feet at 200 Dryden Road in Dresher, a building it owns. The company has plans to raze the Witmer Road structure and build a 256-unit apartment complex. The move was prompted by several factors, said Michael P. Markman, president at BET.

“Our offices were older and we wanted to update our image in a number of ways,” Markman said. “At some point, companies have to come up to speed with what’s going on in the market and have space that is reflective of that."

New offices also gave BET a chance to rebrand itself and use the space to carry out that brand and attract and retain employees. BET has a total of 165 employees and 50 in its new offices.

The Dryden Road building directly overlooks the Promenade at Upper Dublin, a $150 million mixed-use project BET is undertaking and the headquarters’ proximity to the project was deliberate. “We can showcase the project to potential tenants, joint venture partners and lenders,” Markman said.

BET is taking on more mixed-use developments rather than doing stand-alone retail or multifamily projects. This shift comes after the successful redevelopment of the Granite Run Mall into a mixed-use community. “We’re experts in retail and we’re experts in apartments and the marriage of the two put us in a really good position,” Markman said.

Equus Capital Partners Ltd. moved its 100 corporate employees in April to a 42,000-square-foot building it developed at its Ellis Preserve in Newtown Square. The real estate firm had been in Centre Square at 1500 Market St. for 30 years and while a perceived anti-business sentiment in Philadelphia was one of the drivers of the move, Equus sought to accomplish multiple objectives with the new headquarters.

“We felt the building itself should represent our brand and the goal of the project was to express that brand through real estate -— with the building itself, its interior and the location at Ellis Preserve,” said Steve Spaeder of Equus.

The building was designed with a barn motif to draw from the company’s name and location on a campus rich with history. A range of materials were used in the building including reclaimed wood from a project Equus is doing in Reading. Equus will also use Ellis Preserve to highlight the range of work the company does since the campus, which it is redeveloping, has examples of all of the projects it has undertaken.

“It’s a great way for our investors, our lenders and tenants to see a full range of our capabilities,” he said. “We already see a difference in our employees and had a number of great meetings with banks, investors and build-to-suit customers.”

The last to move is Liberty Property Trust, which will relocate in June to 650 E. Swedesford Road, a 100,000-square-foot building in Wayne. This comes after spending four decades in the Great Valley Corporate Center, which it developed. Liberty, which started as an industrial developer, focused for years on suburban office properties. It is now a $9 billion industrial real estate investment trust with a smattering of urban development projects its new headquarters was designed to reflect that shift.

Texas deputy grabs runaway ‘bull by the horns,’ escorts it home

Blind artist and his ‘Miraculous’ mural in Bishop Arts

When the Bishop Highline Apartments open in early June in the Bishop Arts neighborhood of Dallas, the four-story west-facing wall at N. Adams and Melba will feature the work of an artist who will never get to see the finished mural.

That’s because the man painting it is legally blind.

Monday morning I found artist John Bramblitt six-feet up a ladder, a paintbrush in his hand, and whistling "if I only had a brain."

"I don’t know why but every once in a while that song pops in my head," he laughed.

Bramblitt, 47, suffered irreparable damage to his optic nerve from epileptic seizures and other health problems while still a student at the University of North Texas in Denton. He had plans to be an English teacher but channeled some of his frustrations into his art instead.

"Well, when I first started to be honest, I thought I was crazy," he said. "I thought I was out of my mind."

But with the help of his wife, Jacqui, he found out he could place his paints in rainbow order, label them with braille, and paint by feel. When he’s working on canvas in his own Denton studio he usually works completely alone.

"The yellow feels a little bit different than the other colors. The black feels different than the other colors. It gives you a tactile way to be able to feel the wall and understand where you are and what you’re doing. So it’s the same way to get around a canvas that I get around a street," he said.

And John Bramblitt is definitely getting around. His work on canvas is in demand around the world. He’s served as an art instructor to hundreds of visually impaired students across the United States. And by the time the Bishop Highline Apartments mural is done in June to celebrate the grand opening of the complex, this will be his second outdoor mural and the first in his hometown.

"Art was my way to reconnect with people to say that hey I’m still me in here," Bramblitt said.

"It does surprise me that somebody who can’t see the finished product still wants to produce it," Jacqui Bramblitt said. "But I know from years of being with him that he sees it. He just sees it in his head."

"Whenever I was first losing my eyesight, I thought everything was over. I thought my life was over," John Bramblitt said with his guide dog, "Eagle" sleeping next to him. "This painting is a painting of joy. It’s a painting of optimism. I know the more that I paint the brighter, the colors need to be, because the happier I am."

John doesn’t name each piece of artwork until he finishes it. So he has a few more weeks to come up with something. In our interview, he may have hit on an idea.

"So it’s just a dream come true," he said of being able to paint the mural in Dallas and add his unique touch to the art landscape in Bishop Arts. "To me, it’s just incredible. It’s miraculous."

When Bishop Arts sees the finished product that he can’t, they’ll likely think the artist and his work are pretty miraculous too.

It’s up to the Church, Not the Government: Texas Church Builds Housing for Needy Seniors

When the leadership at Bethlehem Baptist Church in Mansfield heard that senior members couldn’t afford to stay in their own homes, they put their faith to work.

The church recently broke ground on an apartment complex to help seniors on fixed incomes combat the rising costs of housing.

The complex, called “Bethlehem’s Pioneer Place,” has been in the planning phase for 12 years.

The housing facility will be built on five and a half acres of land that the church owns and will include 135 one- and two-bedroom units for seniors 55 and older.

In a statement to CBN News, the church shared about the needs of the senior community.

“The fact that senior adults were being displaced from their residences due to their advance of years and the fact that they were no longer able to take care of their own homes, and either having to move in with relatives, children in particular, or being sent to a nursing facility, we believe the Spirit of God moved upon us to do something about this to help these hard working seniors find quality and affordable living facilities where they can live out their golden years in the community they helped to build,” the statement reads.

Pastor Michael Evans, Sr. heads the congregation. He says the church, not the government, is responsible for taking care of its most vulnerable members.

“Anytime you have cuts that take place in the government or what have you, we have to step in, we have to fill the gap,” he said in an interview with NBCDFW.com.

The church went on to say, “Matthew 25 teaches us that the Lord God requires us to attend to and take care of those in need and it is an indictment against the church if the needs of the people in their community are not met.”

They admitted there were many challenges along the way.

“We didn’t own any property,” the statement continued. “We didn’t have the money or finances to do it. We knew that there was a potential for political backlash because of the anti-affordable apartment building sentiment in the DFW metroplex.”

Church members took to Facebook to share their enthusiasm for the venture.

Bobby Mccaslin commented, “It took many years to make this happen! Unbeknown it was God’s timeline that led Bethlehem to start in 2018.”

“So glad I was able to witness this history,” said Pinkey Lawson-Thompson. “Love to BBC.”

Cheryl Mitchell Rose commented, “How wonderful! God’s blessings on this special endeavor for senior citizens. Bethlehem family!”

The church was able to secure a tax credit through the Texas Department of Housing and Community Affairs as well as financial donations to bring its housing vision to fruition.

“If you spent many of your productive years building up this city, why not be the person to take advantage of the amenities that you helped to build, helped come to life,” said Evans. “So many people are moving in now we want to make sure that our seniors have quality safe secure housing.”

Seniors will pay anywhere from $300 to $900 a month, depending on their income.

“Bethlehem’s Pioneer Place” is set to open in summer of 2019.

Seniors in the community are anticipating moving into the complex.

“It has been an overwhelming positive response,” says the church. “We have received sentiments of gratitutde and and overwhelming sense of thankfulness and appreciation.”

What factors will have the greatest impact on San Antonio residential real estate sales in 2018? To date, the 2018 real estate market is exceptionally active. However, I believe a continued increase in interest rates could deter some buyers.

What surprised you most about the San Antonio residential real estate market in 2017? The farm and ranch market was steady throughout the year.

What has been the biggest challenge to your particular residential sector in the last two years? The biggest challenge is replacing property inventory to list. Another challenge is staying at the forefront of electronic and web-based advertising venues.
