DID YOU KNOW?
✔ DID YOU KNOW?
The following cities saw the numbers of ultra-high net worth individuals (those with a net worth $30 million or more)rise the most, in order: Paris, Dallas, San Francisco, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington DC, London, Hong Kong, and Tokyo. North America has a 36% share of the world’s ultra-high-net-worth population.
✔ DID YOU KNOW?
The World Bank said an additional 88 million to 115 million people will fall into extreme poverty this year due to the pandemic. Why it matters: Because it marks the first uptick in extreme poverty in about 20 years. Powerful economic growth in countries like China and India allowed hundreds of millions of people to raise their living standards over the past couple of decades.
Extreme poverty is defined as living on an income of $1.90 or less a day, or ~$700/year.
✔ DID YOU KNOW?
Almost all of those earning above $16 per hour in the USA have recovered their jobs, further pointing to the heavy cost we are all going to pay for massive income disparity. Income disparity will always exist, but when it is extreme and happens at the expense of a massive swath of people whose income does not allow them a living wage or savings, someone inevitably has to pick up that tab.
COVID will cost us TRILLIONS….. extreme income disparity is not free.
✔ DID YOU KNOW?
JPMorgan Chase announces a $30 billion racial justice plan. The nation’s biggest bank said it would lend billions to Black and Latino home buyers and small-business owners over the next five years. “We can do more and do better to break down systems that have propagated racism and widespread economic inequality,” Jamie Dimon, the bank’s chief, said.
3 HOME UPGRADES YOU’VE GOT
TO MAKE RIGHT NOW!
CREATE A DEDICATED OFFICE
Many workers aren’t heading back to the office until 2021 or even later, which means home office space is at a premium, along with space for kids to log in to their virtual classrooms.
UPGRADE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE
Most of us are suffering from an acute case of cabin fever these days. It’s little wonder that outdoor space has become more important than ever to prospective buyers.
“Even pools are becoming more popular in areas where they weren’t before,” says Bill Walker, chief operating officer of Kukun, a web resource for home improvements.
Many people are forgoing the gym during the pandemic, preferring to work up a sweat from home to minimize risks of coronavirus transmission. That means people are looking for space to house gym equipment, from yoga mats to treadmills and stationary bikes.
Your home may not have the space for a fully equipped home gym, but you can still carve out a corner where home buyers will be able to picture their future at-home HIT workouts or yoga flow.
