“The Great Reset” Is Affecting The Affordable Housing Crisis , You will own nothing and be happy. The great reset. That phrase has been used on this website every time I talk about affordable housing options, 2,434 times. The label the great reset was coined by the World Economic Forum. It’s a group of people, the greatest minds across the universe to discuss things that have happened prior, during and after COVID-19, and how the world needs to reset how we’re doing the world economy in a whole. – It is a big idea, a new world order. What I was laser focused on is what they had to say about affordable housing options ’cause there’s of things going on when it comes to housing that a lot of people have told me that I’m wearing a tin foil hat about. So we’re gonna be taking a closer look at the World Economic Forum and find out exactly what they’re saying about affordable housing options. So let’s take off our tinfoil hats and keep an open mind about it. Just whatever you’ve heard before, just look at what I have to say and keep an open mind. So with that open mind, just read this first. I mean, that sounds pretty normal when you’re reading that. I mean, it really does make sense to me. I’ve been talking about that for eons on the website.
Manufactured homes and manufactured home building. First of all, it’s more ecologically sound when it comes to building and the amount of people that you would need to build those houses. Secondly of all, the time it takes to build one of those houses is half. Thirdly of all, it’s a lot less expensive. Fourthly of all, they’re energy-efficient. Lastly, most importantly, for you as a consumer, you get the same quality house as a traditional stick-built house. You get the same exact mortgage and it is energy-efficient, where you have lower bills altogether. All of that sounds pretty reasonable, right? But, you know, there’s always a but. You know how like a while ago, I’ve been talking about how all these big corporations, they were buying up all in the Sun Belt area. “60 Minutes” did a special on it. And what did I tell you were the two main culprits of buying up all of these homes? The names might sound very familiar to you. That is BlackRock and Blackstone. And do you know who sponsors the World Economic Forum and receives money from the World Economic Forum? Shockingly enough, BlackRock and Blackstone. Those two companies have their hands in housing so deep, I don’t know how far it goes. And this is like my tinfoil hat. I keep saying these people are evil and they’re trying to take over American housing. And they’re trying to turn our youth into renters, where they say people do not need to own anything to be happy. I do wanna show you this really quick, because this is one of those things that I was like why did they keep saying own nothing and be happy? What is it that they’re talking about? And this is the ad that came out from the World Economic Forum about owning nothing and being happy. Sure they’re not really talking about housing but I feel like that is the catalyst to eventually be be like, oh, you’re gonna rent tools from us. Like, you know, from the library.
How is that any different from you renting a house from us, you know, to be happy? You know, you could move on with your life. You don’t have to take care of a house. Did the World Economic Forum say that they wanna turn people into renters? Absolutely not. Has BlackRock and Blackstone said that they wanted to turn everybody into renters? Yes, they have. They said they wanted to be America’s landlord. For many years now, way before the pandemic. That has been their ultimate goal. It’s been all over the news how many housing markets they’re in. They’re in Texas. They’re in Phoenix, Arizona. They’re in Miami, Florida. They’re in Tampa, Florida. And they’re even creeping their way into what we would consider smaller markets, like Charlotte, North Carolina. According to this New York Times article “Why the Road Is Getting Even Rockier for First-Time Home Buyers,” “Investors and corporations are buying houses and turning them into rental properties. In Charlotte, North Carolina, that is adding hurdles facing would-be buyers navigating a brutal market.” Also, according to The New York Times article, about 2.5 million households shopping for their first home will be shut out of the market this year, senior economist of the National Association of Realtors.
That amounts to about 15% of all first-time home buyers. In an already daunting market, an investor purchasing is adding to the obstacles. We are going to continue to see home prices rise. They may soften. They may flatten, but they’re not going to tank like many people think. The main reason, even though interest rates keep going up, is we do not have enough houses on the market for sale for the amount of people that need a home. According to the National Association Realtors, we’re actually over 5 million houses short. One of the main reasons for this is that we have not been building enough houses. If you look at this chart right here, it shows you exactly when we built the most amount of homes and when we decided to stop. That’s a lot of houses that aren’t being built. And now we have a whole new bucket of problems with the supply chain issues. This is when I put on my tinfoil hat again. What if some of the supply chain issues could have been manufactured to make housing prices higher? I mean, we saw Lumber go up really high. And from what this clip is telling me from CNBC, we’re gonna be seeing cement go up the roof. COVID caused disruptions in supply. Now demand is expected to increase. The global cement market could be worth over $458 billion in 2028. According to the World Economic Forum and the great reset, they also say 3D printing is an option.
This is my own personal opinion about 3D printed homes. And you can take this with a grain of salt. Don’t get me wrong. They’re really cool to look at, but on the scale that they would need for a neighborhood, makes me extremely nervous. First of all, the cement. What kind of cement is it? They’ve never said what kind of cement. It’s a secret mixture. And even though they’ll give you a 50-year warranty for the poured slab and your house itself, who knows if that company’s even gonna be in existence in 50 years? Not only that. How will they address any problems, if there’s an electrical issue in the house itself? A lot of times, those walls are poured in concrete, so you’d have to like cut a hole into the concrete itself? It looks nifty. Don’t get me wrong. I think the whole idea and the concept is something to look at. I just don’t think they’re quite there yet. Not only that. You’d have to have a special engineer on staff reading the whole process of the pour. Another thing that people do not consider, just like anything you print, think of it exactly how you print a sheet of paper. If that sheet of paper is off just a scooch, then your whole print is offs scooch. Imagine if that was your house and all of a sudden, your house is kind of leaning to the right.
Anything could make those machines off kilter. Not only that. Those machines are super, super heavy, like tons of weight. How much is it gonna cost to get the actual printer to that location itself? That isn’t much of a good environmental footprint, if you think about it, ’cause that thing is like gonna be taking a lot of gas, a lot a diesel to get to the location. Now, if you were building a whole entire neighborhood, I guess it would make a whole lot more sense than building one specific house. But there was another suggestion by the Economic Forum of building modular and modular panel type of housing. But would that actually work? Would that be something that we could even think about, wrap our heads around, the whole neighborhoods being turned into manufactured homes? Well, it’s already started. There is a neighborhood that’s gonna be building homes that are manufactured homes that are made completely in a manufactured plant and they’re gonna be building other traditional built homes in the same exact neighborhood.
According to Builder Intel, housing innovations contain costs amid rising rates. A Colorado subdivision of site-built and factory-built homes offers solutions to the new normal of the housing market. Is this really gonna be the new normal? “Coming to Fruition, Factory-Built Homes Create an Inclusive Neighborhood. Building in Weld County, Colorado, the Fruition subdivision will be 3,500-acre master-planned community.” Sometimes referred to as a pud, “that will offer home buyers a mix of site-built and factory-built options. The team will offer as many as 2,500 factory-built homes in the community, with the first phase of the development already underway.” This is the interesting part. This says that it will be a savings of $65,000. And it goes on to say “With a focus on homes that are eligible for MH Advantage financing, and Gateway American Resources sought a level of curb appeal, building materials, and interior finishes that are consistent with site built homes and customers’ expectations. These homes are built to the Department of Housing and Urban Development code.” So if you break that down, that means they’re not built to the same standards of traditional built homes. There are a HUD manufactured home. Like some people will call them mobile homes. Some people will call them trailers.
So I’m going to pass that question off to you. If you were going to buy a house in a neighborhood, would you be okay with some of your neighbors being in a house that would be considered a mobile home or a manufactured home? Would it bother you? Only time will tell if something like this will work, and I really am interested to see how they’re going to make this look more curb-appealing. One of the biggest factors that makes most people turned off by them is the way that they look. They look like a manufactured home. They just look like a tube that goes straight across. There’s nothing about them that makes it feel like a traditional built house. If they can actually make them look like traditional built homes, that they don’t look like that cylinder, I think they have a winning combination there. But if they can’t, that could be a real, real nightmare for the people that have bought a traditional built home and it could possibly bring down their property values. I’m not 100% sure on this.
This is totally experimental. Until we see it, we don’t know what will happen. But I think it’s an excellent resource for people that are looking for that first-time home. And if it’s in a neighborhood that is being well taken care of, like a traditional neighborhood, it could be the thing that saves us and gets us out of this whole nightmare of affordable housing options. ‘Cause that’s what people always complain about. They’re like, “I don’t wanna live in a trailer park.” Well, if it wasn’t a trailer park and it was a real neighborhood, just like everybody else’s, then maybe this could be the thing. You let me know. What do you think? Do you think this will work? Or do you think this is a high hopes for nothing? Now, I know I didn’t touch on everything when it comes to the great reset. I just wanted to talk about housing. But I would love to hear your comments in the comments section below and I will be reading every single one of them.

Your real estate whisper and I tell you all this because good real estate information matters.
