1.The game of chess is not a game of chance but requires mastery of a complex set of skills that are both art and science. A player needs to be alert, equally aware of the strengths and weaknesses of his own position and that of his opponent. A plan is needed, most assuredly. The number of possible games that can develop, however, exceeds the number of atoms in the universe. Hence, flexibility within the plan is critical. Each move has a short-term impact and is also a step in positioning for a victorious endgame.
Like chess, the real estate playing field requires an artful mix of skills, tactics, and strategies. A chessboard is limited to just 64 squares and is two-dimensional. Real estate’s domain covers a lot more space, and requires thinking across economic, social, political, and technological dimensions.Beginners may often extend themselves swiftly and aggressively into the fray, seeking quick advantage but overlooking the impact of countermeasures that are obvious to more experienced players. Strategic thinkers see beyond the “next move” and anticipate the development of a series of moves that, taken together, create a more powerful control of the board.
2.The economy of the largest city in Louisiana continues to be bifurcated. On one hand, tourism is driving employment in the leisure and hospitality sector, and health care is adding jobs as more Louisiana residents qualify for care under the Medicaid expansion. On the other hand, the New Orleans energy and shipping industries have been shedding jobs due to falling energy prices and a glut in global energy supply.
New Orleans is one of the five markets in the survey where total employment has yet to return to pre–Great Recession peak levels. Projected growth in 2017 will not help remedy that condition. Job growth in 2017 is expected to remain in the services and leisure and hospitality sectors. Job losses in the energy sector should slow, but recovery may be hindered by Louisiana’s higher average production costs. Shipping will struggle as the strong U.S. dollar affects exports, but it may get a boost from a rise in the demand for imported goods by U.S. consumers. Development activity has been limited to projects that meet the needs of the local population. Examples include medical office, select retail, and multifamily.
