    Need help from native speakers. About Titanic & the US housing market.

    I'm working on some audio transcripts. These are the part I can't hear clearly. Click the following links to listen.

    1.

    “A very good afternoon, ladies and gentlemen, Captain speaking. ******* Balmoral’s en route to the Titanic wreckage site.”

    http://soundcloud.com/michael147-1/1-1

    It's about Titanic. I have already Googled it. But it came up nothing about the part I don't understand, so... hope it will be solved here.

    2.

    That gluts the housing market with too many homes, and it can push down prices, though ****** some investors to buy up thousands of these properties in bulk and convert them into rental homes.

    This is about the US housing market. Google also came up nothing.

    Really really appreciate your help.

    That gluts the housing market with too many homes, and it can push down prices, though at-lately there's been some investors to buy up thousands of these properties in bulk and convert them into rental homes.

    The speaker starts to say 'at' but changes to 'lately', so the two words are blured.
