New home sales experiencing a V-shaped recovery, according to new figures

first_imgHome » News » COVID-19 news » New home sales experiencing a V-shaped recovery, according to new figures previous nextHousing MarketNew home sales experiencing a V-shaped recovery, according to new figuresRecovery in sales of new properties has been dramatic after collapsing by 60% in April, according to figures in new report.Richard Reed8th July 202001,058 Views New UK home sales are experiencing a V-shaped bounce, according to new figures from investment bank Goodbody.Sales levels have returned to 2019 levels in the latest period after collapsing by roughly 60% in April, with demand bouncing back since the easing of lockdown restrictions.In the four weeks to 20 June, Goodbody estimates that new home sales nationally were modestly above (4%) the equivalent period in 2019.The firm says is too early to tell whether this simply represents a catch up from the month of lost activity, but the dramatic change from the depths of the collapse is impressive and represents a V-shaped recovery in new home sales.South-East and East lead wayThe rebound in demand has occurred nationwide, but the most impressive recovery has been in the East and South-East of England.In both regions, sales in the latest four-week period are ahead of the same period in 2019. The North-West and North-East have been the relative underperformers in this recovery.The new Goodbody asking price index suggests that prices have remained firm over recent months. It is early days in this regard, but our index points to low single-digit increases in asking prices to date.The resilience of new home prices may be explained by the relative resilience of demand and the fact that new home stock levels remain relatively low, having fallen by 6% year-on-year on the latest reading.Computer modelling initially suggested a 10%-15% decline in UK house prices but while there are significant demand risks as furloughs come to an end, the outcome may be considerably more positive.Demand for new homes V-shaped recovery new homes July 8, 2020Richard ReedWhat’s your opinion?

Expert Week 11 NFL Picks Advice: Tips for Pick ’em Pools, Survivor Pools

by ,

first_imgGet our Week 11 Survivor Pool pick recommendationOnce you know the best value opportunities of NFL Week 11, you can increase your odds to win your pool by making educated gambles on them. But there are a lot of potential decisions to make. Not all of them will make sense for your specific pool(s), and it takes a lot of data and math to get to the right answers.Fortunately, we’ve built technology to do all the analytical heavy lifting for you. You can use the links above to learn more about our data-driven game predictions, betting picks, and customized picks for pick ’em and survivor pools. More From TeamRankings:Football Pick ’em Picks | NFL Survivor Picks | NFL Betting PicksWeek 11 NFL Pick ’em Pool Tips, AnalysisReview of last week’s pick ’em analysisLast week for pick ’em we highlighted four value favorites and the top unpopular underdog option. Those picks (Cleveland, Chicago, Dallas, Jets, and San Francisco) went 3-2. The public, meanwhile, only averaged 1.8 wins for those five games and took a beating overall.  WEEK 11 FANTASY RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerValue picks for NFL Week 11 pick’em poolsGetting the biggest edge in your NFL pick ’em pool requires knowing not only every team’s win odds (i.e. how risky of a pick it is), but also how popular of a pick it is. Why? Because when you pick less popular teams and they win, you’ll shoot up your office pool standings.Based on win odds and pick popularity, the three teams below either offer some of the best opportunities to differentiate your Week 11 picks from your pool opponents. To get all our pick recommendations for your pool — customized for its size, rules, and prize structure — check out our Football Pick ’em Picks product.Note: Win odds and estimated national pick popularity data below may change between publication time and kickoff time. If you want to see the latest numbers, our football picks product updates multiple times per day.Cleveland Browns (vs. Pittsburgh)Last week, the Browns were our highlighted value favorite going against Buffalo at home. Cleveland is back again as a favorite who is being picked less than half the time by the public. The Browns are a 2.5-point favorite over the Steelers in Thursday Night’s game, with win odds of around 56 percent. They aren’t as unpopular as last week but are still only being picked by 39 percent of the public in this one. The public seems to have fully jumped off the Browns’ bandwagon at a time when the schedule is actually opening up a bit. Cleveland had played a very difficult first-half schedule, especially when it came to oppoosing defenses, and might be providing value now as a result. Indianapolis Colts (vs. Jacksonville)The Colts have had an interesting journey when it comes to the public popularity. They were very unpopular and often a great value play early in the season, as they were unexpectedly competitive with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback. Then, they went through a stretch over the past few weeks where the public climbed aboard, and they lost consecutive close games to the Steelers and Dolphins. The Colts, by the way, have had every game decided by seven points or less, making them only the second team since the 1970 merger to be involved in nine straight games that close to open the season.Now, they are favored over the Jaguars at home by 3.5 points, with win odds of 64 percent. The public is taking them 70 percent of the time, which is pretty reasonable given their win odds. That pick popularity, though, puts them well below the other four games with a point spread of between 3.5 and 4.5 points this week, making them a value. That’s why, as of right now, the Colts are a recommendation in straight up pools across both weekly and seasonal prize types and why they are bumped up a little in confidence point pools with weekly prize structures.Philadelphia Eagles (vs. New England)This pick isn’t suitable for all pools, but if you’re in a situation where it makes more sense to gamble on an underdog (e.g. a weekly prize pool, or you need to take some risks to make up spots in the standings), you want to make sure that the risk/reward tradeoff looks good.The Patriots will be trying to bounce back after their first loss of the season to Baltimore in a rematch of the Super Bowl from two seasons ago. The Patriots come into this one as a 3.5-point favorite on the road with implied win odds of 63 percent from the betting markets. Our models are a little more optimistic about Philadelphia’s chances, giving it a 42 percent of pulling the mild upset.The public, meanwhile, is a strong believer in the Patriots getting both revenge and a bounce back, with 82 percent going with New England. That means this game has the highest difference between our projected win odds and the public pick rate for Week 11. New England’s offense has struggled somewhat this season, which was largely masked by playing a very easy schedule until meeting Baltimore. Philadelphia is still the second-best team the Patriots have played all season, so taking a chance on the upset is a decent option in weekly contests of all sizes.More From TeamRankings:Football Pick ’em Picks | NFL Survivor Picks | NFL Betting PicksWeek 11 NFL Survivor Pool Pick Tips, AnalysisReview of last week’s survivor pick analysisMeanwhile, in survivor pools, well over 80 percent of the public was eliminated last week with the Colts and Saints losing. We recommended that our subscribers largely avoid those teams (less than 20 percent of our recommendations were on the Saints or Colts) and most frequently recommended the Bears, Ravens, and Bucs. As a result, over 60 percent of our recommendations survived the week, and our subscribers are now more than five times as likely to still be alive in survivor pools as the general public.This week features two teams being selected by around 40 percent of the remaining public entries so far. They each look like the safest choices this week, but should you stay with one of them or take a little more risk and fade both to play for the big upset? Those are the choices those in survivor pools this week.Week 11 survivor pool breakdownThe Raiders (vs. Bengals) are the most popular choice in survivor this week, with around half the public (51 percent) picking them so far. Their popularity makes sense, as they have not been used in survivor pools much at all this season but draw the winless Bengals this week. The Raiders are a 10.5-point favorite with 82-percent implied win odds from the betting markets.The Vikings (vs. Denver) and 49ers (vs. Arizona) both have similar win odds to Oakland and are also favored by at least 10.5 points. Minnesota is the choice of 19 percent of the public, while San Francisco is being selected 11 percent of the time. Given that those two teams have similar win odds but are far less popular as Oakland, they have higher expected value this week and are generally better picks than Oakland in most pools.Of the two, San Francisco is slightly more valuable to hold for the future because it has one of the highest projected win odds in Week 15, when it hosts Atlanta.Of course, if your picks mirror the public, you might not have either San Francisco or Minnesota available, as Minnesota was the most popular public choice in Week 8 and San Francisco was the top survivor choice in Week 9. If you have used both of those teams and need help deciding who to use this week, check out our NFL Survivor Picks product.More From TeamRankings:Football Pick ’em Picks | NFL Survivor Picks | NFL Betting Picks The carnage was very real in NFL pick ’em and survivor pools last week. The Saints and Colts alone knocked a huge chunk of people out of their survivor pools, and with only two of the eight most popular picks in pick ’em pools winning, there were hits there, as well. But if you’re still alive in survivor or looking to get back on track in pick ’em, the experts from TeamRankings are here to help with advice and tips for your Week 11 NFL picks.Before getting into the advice, here’s a reminder that TeamRankings is the only site that provides customized picks that maximize your edge in survivor pools. Since 2017, TeamRankings subscribers have reported nearly $1.5 million in survivor pool winnings. Check out their NFL survivor pool picks, football pick ’em contest picks, and NFL betting picks.last_img read more

Woods tops $100 million in earnings

by ,

first_img“The purse increase helps,” Woods said after a final-round 66 left him two strokes behind winner Rory McIlroy in the second week of the four-tournament FedEx Cup playoff. “I won fewer tournaments than Sam Snead has, but obviously he was in a different era. It’s just that we happened to time it up right and happened to play well when the purses really had a nice spike up.”Snead, the career leader with 82 PGA Tour victories, earned just $620,126 in a career that started in 1937. His biggest prize was $28,000 for a second-place finish in Milwaukee in 1968, and for most of his prime he played in tournaments with a total purse—that’s all the payouts combined—of less than $100,000.Woods has won 74 tournaments, second all-time, including 38 times with a first prize of $1 million or more. His winnings come out to an average of $362,276.89 for each of his 277 career starts.But it’s not just good timing: Prize money skyrocketed on the PGA Tour after Woods went pro and brought huge crowds and television audiences to the sport.“It was nice to have a nice start to my career, and I won some majors early,” he said. “I think we got some interest in the game of golf. A lot more youth, that’s for sure.”This weekend’s Deutsche Bank paid out $8 million, including the $1.44 million that went to McIlroy for his third victory of the year.By finishing strong—he was in the 60s in all four rounds—Woods remains in contention for the $10 million FedEx Cup bonus, which he has won twice. That money isn’t even included in his official career earnings, nor is the hundreds of millions he has collected in endorsements. $100 MILLION MAN—Tiger Woods watches his shot from the 11th tee during the Pro Am round of the Deutsche Bank Championship golf tournament at TPC Boston in Norton, Mass., Aug. 30. (AP Photo/Michael Dwyer) NORTON, Mass. (AP)—Tiger Woods has become the first $100 million man on the PGA Tour.Woods finished third in the Deutsche Bank Championship on Monday to earn $544,000 and push his career total to $100,350,700. Next on the list is Phil Mickelson—more than $30 million behind at $66,805,498 after finishing fourth at the TPC Boston.last_img read more
