Report Highlights Affordability, Shifting Stock as Rental Costs Rise

A report from Harvard University’s Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS) is shedding new light on the country’s rental market, which faces a crisis in supply and affordability as properties shift from individual landlords to institutional investors, and the gap between low and high-income households—as well as families of color and white families—expands. The study found demand for rentals, similar to the demand for homes, spiked in 2021, dropping the vacancy rate for apartments to its lowest ...

Paramount Reportedly Shifts Release Dates For A Quiet Place, Transformers, And More

Sigh. It's fine. Everything is fine. As I stop myself from using the dog in the fire drinking coffee meme, let me explain what I'm talking about. IndieWire is reporting that Paramount has moved some theatrical releases. One of those is "A Quiet Place 3," and that's not the only big name making a move. "Mission: Impossible 7" is moving for the fifth time as well as a slew of others. It's also going to shift "Mission: Impossible 8" to a later date. The franchise's move has been confirmed by the si...

Fractured MLS Landscape Begins Embracing Tech, Consolidation

It is not the flashiest or most dynamic part of the real estate industry. The concept of a Multiple Listing Service, or MLS, goes back more than 100 years when local boards would meet in a dusty office and exchange paper copies of listings. Eventually, these were consolidated into larger volumes accessible by members of local or regional associations, before the dawn of the internet blurred regional lines and gave broad access to listing data for both consumers and real estate professionals. Tod...

Grass-Roots Development Opposition Hinders Healthy Growth

“Not in my backyard.” That phrase has sounded out so many times—directed at land use experts, local politicians and housing developers—that it now has its own acronym. The NIMBY phenomenon, or NIMBYism can be found in nearly every community across the country, with roots going back 50 years or more. Growth or development that is often vitally, indisputably necessary is met with virulent grass-roots backlash not based on its merits, but instead on its location. People who might support increasing...

Experts Address Inflation Fears During RISMedia Panel

Inflation Climbs to Historic Levels at 7%

The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) released its consumer price index (CPI) summary Tuesday morning showing an almost 40-year high year-over-year increase in December at 7%, with core inflation at 5.5%. After months of referring to spiraling price increases as “transitory,” the Federal Reserve has begun approaching the issue with more urgency in recent weeks, planning to accelerate its tapering of bond purchases and estimating three interest rate hikes in 2022 to combat the persistent upward pr...

Rents Cheaper in Cities, Homeownership in Rural Regions

Despite home prices that have continued to skyrocket and interest rates creeping up, owning a median-priced house remains more affordable than renting in a slim majority of U.S. counties, according to a new report from ATTOM Data Solutions—though in most large metros renting is cheaper. In 58% of counties, the monthly cost of owning a home takes up a smaller percentage of an individual’s wages compared to monthly rental costs, the report found. At the same time, in 21 out of the 25 most populous...

From everyday choices like clothing to enormously important life events like weddings, these individuals dedicate tremendous energy, time and money to their favorite team, school or competition.

Billion-Dollar Loan Officer Shares Path to Success

For the mortgage industry, 2021 was something of a feeding frenzy. Both refinances and new purchase loans broke records as interest rates sat at historic lows.

Sitting on a staggering top-line of just over $2 billion in loan originations this year, Shant Banosian of Guaranteed Rat...

REALTORS® Mobilize Support After Kentucky Tornadoes

The devastation was sudden, and the damage is incalculable.

Inflation Continues to Soar in November, Up 6.8% This Year

The consumer price index (CPI) jumped 0.8% in November, according to a new report from the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, pushing overall inflation to a nearly 40-year high at 6.8% as supply chain struggles and surging demand has sent the price of consumer goods spiraling upward. So-called core inflation, which does not include more volatile food and energy prices, was up 0.5% in November, reaching 4.9% over the last 12 months. Much of the core inflation increase was driven by vehicle price...

New Mortgages Fall, Sparking Fears of Market Slowdown

A significant drop in mortgage originations for the second consecutive quarter has industry insiders worried, as borrowers appear to be shying away from both refinance and new purchase lending in what is traditionally a peak season, according to a new report from ATTOM Data Solutions. After dropping 3% in the second quarter of 2021, new mortgage originations fell an alarming 8% overall in Q3 this year. This is the first time in more than two years the industry has seen consecutive quarterly decr...

Zillow Subject of Multiple Lawsuits Over iBuying

The hits keep on coming for Zillow. After first pausing in October and then officially sunsetting its iBuying business earlier this month, Zillow has now been hit by two investor class-action lawsuits that claim, among other things, that the real estate giant “made materially false and/or misleading statements” in regards to iBuying, failing to disclose to investors many fundamental issues that plaintiffs claim made it “reasonably likely” that Zillow would have to abandon the model. Both suits a...

House Passes ‘Build Back Better’ In Big Step for Landmark Bill

The approximately $1.75 trillion “Build Back Better Act,” which dedicates unprecedented funding for a broad swath of social programs including housing, passed the House last Friday, despite stiff opposition from Republicans. The passage inches the bill forward, even as its fate and specific language will be subject to further scrutiny. Real estate advocates have mostly supported the bill, which includes around $150 billion in housing-related investments. The bill must still pass the Senate, wher...

Millennials, Remote Work Are Upending Cities—What It Means for Real Estate

Location is, and has always been, everything in real estate. The truism that where a property sits must be its most important characteristic remains undisputed. But what is location, really? What does it mean to homebuyers, and what are the consequences when changes come? The truth is, street layouts, public transportation systems, commuting routes, open space, walking paths, restaurants or shopping, parks, schools and scenic views are malleable both in how they are valued and how they come to b...

After the demise of Zillow’s iBuying service, real estate observers were anxious to hear from other players in the industry, with many positing that the entire iBuyer model might be in jeopardy.

The company, which only went public in September, reported stronger than expected growth across the board and CEO Brian Blair offered bullish predicti...

Leading iBuyer Opendoor Shrugs Off Zillow Crash With Strong Q3

For some, the surprise early November announcement from Zillow that it would permanently wind down its iBuyer operation looked like a wake-up call for the iBuying industry. Even as companies have seen exponential growth over the last year or so, plenty of insiders wondered if iBuying had really proven itself sustainable. Zillow’s failure had even more people asking: if such a large, established company could not find even short-term success in large-scale algorithmic home-flipping, wasn’t there ...
