[00:00 - 09:58] Lessons on Supply Chain and Inflation

  • Inflation is a result of printing money in 2020, causing supply chain-induced inflationary time

  • The supply chain industry can predict future events up to 12 months, making it relevant to real estate development and renovation

  • The delicate nature of the supply chain allows it to be dynamic, unique, and touch every part of the globe

  • The world of supply chain foreshadows what is to come in the future, allowing for better preparedness and decision-making

[09:59 - 19:35] The Impact of Supply Chain Disruptions on Inflation

  • Supply chain disruption created a demand problem leading to a spike in pricing

  • Cost of goods sold has caught up to the high prices, vendors will increase prices again

  • There is a one-year lag time for the actual price level to work itself through the distribution channels

  • There is a potential end in sight due to the supply chain normalization, decrease in demand and shipping, and the federal reserve's interest rate hikes

[19:36 - 27:36] The Impact of Warehousing on the Rental Market and Real Estate

  • Real estate market is strong, especially the rental market for those who cannot afford to buy homes due to low-interest rates

  • Careful with lower-quality residents susceptible to job loss or lower income

  • Warehousing space demand increased due to 116 vessels parked outside Long Beach

  • Warehouses full, no space to store inventory, and importers canceling orders
