 The Challenge of Construction Labor ShortagesConstruction firms have long struggled to maintain an adequate work force, but COVID and underlying demographic trends have combined to intensify the problem. The workforce continues to age, so there’s a diminishing percentage of people willing and able to handle the demands of the job. Other complicating considerations are the federal unemployment benefits that have incentivized not returning to work, as well as the industry’s spotty record of providing health benefits. In July, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported some 300,000 unfilled positions in the construction industry.These factors tell us the lack of housing inventory is not going away any time soon. Buyer demand continues to expand, and home builders increasingly find themselves...

Motivational Monday - Want to Motivate Yourself? What Sets YOUR Soul on Fire?Today's Motivational Monday was inspired by Michael Jordan's quote this weekend,“I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.”Many of our most successful business leaders - not only in real estate but, across the board - will tell you that they are most inspired by someone telling them that they cannot do something. Not giving up (tenacity) is one of those inner-most motivators that many successful people possess. As well, being too afraid to 'try' is not something successful business leaders experience either.   I often revere those who are motivated by the drive for the highest of standards - doing the right thing, integrity and being excellent in every way.
