A No-Brainer

Be the first to comment on this post

Voting for a new high school. I hear people say “spend $40,000,000 on Jefferson”.

What?

To spend $40,000,000 renovating a Model A to save $24,000,000 is ludicrous.

I would rather spend $64,000,000 if I could make $100,000,000.

I do not know the complete financial outcome of how much of an investment return we could make from building a new high school, but the thought of not investing the $64,000,000 to create the opportunity blows my mind.

The Tech College currently has 3000 students. What if they could grow that to 6000 students? Do you have any idea the amount of revenue that is created per 1000 students to this economy?

Do you know the financial impact to this community if Douglas Machine Corporation adds 150 new technical jobs?

The hospital desperately needs more real estate…what does 50-100 new medical jobs create in revenue to this community?

When will Alexandria stop growing?

Do we not want more and better jobs to come to this community?

Voting no for this community’s new high school is borderline ______________(fill in the blank).

Invest in childrens education, that way you have to someone to make your Social Security payments…think about that for awhile.

It stuns me to think that people of this community even question building a new high school. Jefferson High School is shot…it’s over, crush it, tear it down, get rid of it…it has no future value other than landfill.

People…this community is pregant with opportunity but some are afraid to give birth.

Invest $64,000,000…it will all come back, with interest.

Everyone is entitled to their opinion, but a new high school? Come on, that’s a no-brainer!

Take time to read this quick report. It suggests current market data…

Bottomline…the “herd” is moving into a rental position. Rentals are hot, rents are going up…PEOPLE SHOULD BE BUYING!

Remember, do the opposite of the “herd” and you will profit. That’s my opinion, what’s yours?

New High School in Alexandria, MN?

Be the first to comment on this post

New High School in Alexandria,MNIt is now in the hands of the voters to decide the fate of the new high school. At a cost of $64,000,000, I think that the best options for the future of Alexandria, MN is this new high school.

A new jail, a new police station, a new public works building…these were never voted on by the taxpayers.

The jail ain’t for kids, the school is. For a lot of reasons, let’s vote yes on the new school!

In a nutshell….

More foreclosures

Housing recovery will drag on for awhile…1-2 years?

Estimates for 2012 look good…Housing Starts will be up, Existing Home Sale predictions are up!

Inventory of New Homes for Sale is at an all-time low! Historical average is around 300,000 units, we have 167,000 for sale in this country. It was near 570,000 units at the end of 2006.

New Home Sales are in the toilet…lowest ever…The Good News? It can only go up from here.

Inventory of used homes for sale, still elevated near 4,000,000 for sale.

Months supply of New Homes, 6.2 months…was 12.

Existing Home Resales…Looking good at around a stable 5,000,000 units/year… the downside is that about 35% of those sales numbers are distressed properties.
