The security of all concerned – journalists, witnesses and residents – takes priority over a results-based culture or a drive for image.”The deployment of 80 crack military policemen, primarily the noted Special Operations Battalion, led to a fierce exchange of gunfire with drug traffickers in the Antares favela yesterday. Security forces said nine alleged gang members had been arrested and four killed, and a large quantity of drugs and weapons seized.Domingos, who was wearing a bullet-proof vest, was fatally shot in the chest. The 46-year-old cameraman had three children and two grandchildren. “We hope an inquiry will establish as soon as possible who fired the fatal shot,” Reporters Without Borders said.“In common with organizations such as the Rio journalists’ union, we hope that lessons will be learned from this tragedy and a genuine debate is held on the professional risks and the coverage of organised crime,” the organization concluded.

December 17, 2020 1,387 Views About Author: Phil Hall Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago It was a competitive November in the housing market—a new data report from Redfin found 53.6% of home offers written by the Seattle-headquartered brokerage’s agents nationwide were involved in a bidding war.Although November’s data was a decline from the revised rate of 58.5% in October, it nonetheless represented the seventh consecutive month when more than half of Redfin offers evolved into bidding wars between would-be buyers. Redfin attributed this trend to historically low mortgage interest rates coupled with a supply-and-demand imbalance and an increase in homeownership interest fueled by the rise of pandemic-impacted workforce handling their jobs from home.The majority of the most intense bidding wars appeared to be concentrated in the West Coast. Among the 24 major metro areas analyzed for the report, San Diego had the highest bidding-war rate with 75.3% of Redfin offers facing competition, followed by Denver (66.7%), the combined Bay Area’s metros of San Francisco and San Jose (65.8%), Seattle (60.9%), Sacramento (60%), Los Angeles (59.5%), Washington, D.C. (58.7%), Austin (58.1%), Phoenix (57.7) and Salt Lake City (56%).At the other end of the spectrum, Minneapolis had a lower rate of November competition with 34.6% of Redfin offers facing bidding wars in November. Rounding out the bottom five were Chicago (36.4%), Tampa, FL (37.1%), Houston (37.3%) and New York (37.6%). Among property types, single-family homes generated the greatest level of bidding wars (57.3%), compared to townhouses (48.7%) and condominiums (38.3%).”Buyers aren’t going to compete for homes that have been sitting on the market,” said Redfin Chief Economist Daryl Fairweather. “They will typically only get into a bidding war for a newly-listed, desirable home that is move-in ready.”And it appeared that the bidding wars helped to pump up the price tags on available property. Redfin also reported the national median home price rose in November by 14% year-over-year to $335,519, marking the second-largest annual increase since at least 2012. Closed home sales were up by 23% from one year ago while pending sales were up 37% and new listings merely recorded an 8% annualized uptick.”Neither the election nor the Thanksgiving holiday weekend curbed homebuyers’ appetite in November,” Fairweather said. “I personally bought a home last month because I knew if I didn’t seal the deal by then, I would have to wait until January for more new listings to hit the market to find one that checked all of my boxes. Plus, there is no guarantee mortgage rates will stay this low for much longer. And like most buyers this time of year, once I had it in my head that it was time to move, I wanted to be settled in my new home in time for the holidays.” Move-In Ready Homes Spark Bidding Wars  Print This Post The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days agocenter_img Home / Daily Dose / Move-In Ready Homes Spark Bidding Wars Sign up for DS News Daily The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Subscribe Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago Previous: Key Takeaways from Real Estate in 2020 Next: Study Shows Disparities Among Older Households Related Articles Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago 2020-12-17 Christina Hughes Babblast_img read more
