    Article Synopsis

    paved or stabilized yard for inventory storage thumbnail

    Paved or stabilized yards have many uses. They can be used to store inventory - i.e. pipe and other items that can withstand the elements - as shown in the attached photo. They can even be used to display inventory, as in the case of processed stone used for countertops. They can also serve as a place to park trucks and trailers - empty and loaded. With proper security, gating and fencing, they can be a reasonably secure place for these and many other items.

    So, why not just buy some land and place these items onto it? The purpose of land stabilization is to prevent heavy materials stored on or moving across that land from sinking into the ground. Roads are a primary form of stabilization. Vehicle tire contact points concentrate the vehicle’s weight and represent an excellent example of the need for and the challenges of stabilization. A broad range of situations drives the need for stabilization. In this article, we’ll discuss:

    • Several types of stabilization
    • Issues with stabilizing yards
    • Stabilization use cases
    • Problems with using stabilized yards

    For the record, we are not discussing stabilizing your back yard here. We are discussing industrial grade stabilization - probably an acre or much more.

    Posted by Steve Watts, on March 23, 2020
    Article Synopsis

    There is a lot of news out there. We are trying to pick a few of the ariticles that are more relevant to the industries we serve. Today we have articles about the economy (since things are moving very quickly, this can’t help but be a bit dated but still interesting to see progression), the Port of Houston, and a discussion with the Texas Railroad Commissioner about the Texas and World Oil & Gas markets.

    Port Houston to receive millions for Bayport terminal expansion, Houston Business Journal, 11Mar2020

    HBJ released an article discussing a Grant presented on 10Mar2020 to Port Houston for $21.8M and Port of Corpus Christi for $17.6M. Port Houston will use the funds to expand the Bayport Container Terminal and Port of Corpus Christi will use the funds to partially refurbish docks. The article goes on to discuss various activities at both ports.

    Warning Bells Sound for U.S. Economy As Virus Squeezes Ports, Yahoo Finance, 10Mar2020

    As of 10Mar2020, the shipping industry - “accustomed to running at full speed this time of year” - is watching a shipping slowdown “tied to the coronavirus.” China shuttering factories is a big factor in slowing shipments into the country. Low demand for longshore labor is causing alarm, per “Jock O’Connell, a foreign trade consultant in CA.” No one knows for sure, but we think we could still be early in this downturn. Buckle up!

    Texas oil regulator: ‘What our eyes are on is not the pain of today. It’s the pain of the future, Dallas Business Journal, 21Mar2020

    This is an interview with Ryan Sitton, Texas Railroad Commissioner. The article is centered around what if any extraordinary action Texas should take in light of the bottom dropping out from under oil prices. He discusses possible national collaboration with OPEC, dictated slowing of production, and his opinion that oil demand will be here for the long haul.

    Synopsis Posted by Steve Watts, on August 3, 2019
    Article Synopsis

    The Texas (and other State’s) Real Estate Commission (TREC) exists to implement the state laws established around the practice of Real Estate. The state decided at some point - I used to know the date - that consumers need to be protected from fraud and ignorance in the most consequential transactions in which some folks will ever be involved. TREC has come a long way in simplifying what it thinks the consumer needs to know.

    They require a lot of things, but some of the most important center around setting up a relationship with a Real Estate professional. They want you to know that until you have an agreed upon relationship with your Broker, you can not assume that they work for you because by statute, they do not. This doesn’t mean that they are allowed to lie to you - just that their duty is to provide their client with the best possible information, and that until you are their client, you need to assume their client is someone else.

    They do a much better job of explaining it than I do with their Consumer Protection Notice, which talks about where to file a complaint, what recovery options are available to you as a consumer, and how to get more information. Add to that their Information About Brokerage Services document, which explains in detail the professionals you will be working with, the minimum duties of these professionals to their client, and more detail about the different ways a given Brokerage can represent you in your Real Estate transaction. This information is critical to you and to your understanding about who to trust and what to share. TREC requires all Real Estate professionals in Texas to provide this information to you BEFORE they conduct substantive discussions with  you about your Real Estate needs.

    There is a good deal of useful information on the TREC Web Site. You can investigate the licensing status of anyone you are considering using as your Real Estate professional, including complaints lodged against them. Most of it is aimed at the Real Estate professional, so you might well consider it pretty dry reading (not that a Real Estate professional doesn’t…).

    Every state has rules set out for this situation. I haven’t reviewed the regulations of any other state in detail, but it is my  understanding that all states regulate these transactions to some, and probably to a similar degree.
