Broadway Pop!

I have fallen in love with Funko Pops figures -- they're so odd but so wonderful.

I was fortunate enough to happen upon Amanda Tang's Broadway Pop store on Etsy, and it was like I had died and gone to musical theatre memorabilia heaven. She has custom Funko Pops for Ham...

Glendale City Council adopts temporary rent cap

The Glendale City Council voted 3-1 early Wednesday after a marathon meeting to cap rent increases at 5 percent for a two-month period, according to a city statement. The rent freeze was adopted while the city studies a possible ordinance mandating tenants get one-year leases and other possible tenant protections.

Election 2018: California’s rent-control measure defeated

A hard-fought and controversial campaign to expand rent control in California, home to some of the priciest housing markets in the nation, was defeated Tuesday night. Proposition 10, the measure to broaden rent control’s reach by repealing a state law restricting its use, trailed throughout the night as it was soundly rejected by the state’s voters. “The stunning margin of victory shows California voters clearly understood the negative impacts Prop. 10 would have on the availability of affordabl...

What explains the rent affordability gap between Los Angeles and San Francisco?

How could San Francisco’s rental market be “affordable” in a national study that scores Los Angeles rather poorly? Data crunchers at apartment tracker RentCafe tried to measure the cost of renting a slightly different way — where are rental units the most affordable to the common paycheck. RentCafe analysts looked at Census Bureau housing data for the nation’s 50 most-populous cities to see how rents and incomes stacked up. These researchers defined “affordable” as how much of the rental supply ...

The ‘roomie’ effect: How Southern Californians are cutting their high rents

Local renters aren’t stupid. They’re downright crafty. When faced with few available units   and sky-high rents many tenants co-opt each other, creating some of the nation’s most-crowded rentals. High-density living of all sorts — roommates, co-habitating and multi-generational arrangements —  significantly cuts the rent burden in Southern California. And while Californians debate housing politics at the ballot box Nov. 6, don’t forget: crammed rental units aren’t just a landlord-tenant issue. C...

Amid a ‘rent-burden crisis,’ will tenants vote yes on Prop. 10, expanding rent control?

With a major rent control vote just 2½ weeks away, financially strapped Southern California renters face continued rent hikes into the foreseeable future, a new forecast shows. The region, said one expert, is in the grip of a “rent-burden crisis.” Yet, some renters are getting a measure of relief in that rent increases are getting smaller, figures from a half-dozen apartment trackers show. “To say (renters) are catching a break would be too strong a statement,” said Richard Green, director of th...

How Nate Armstrong Recommends Raising Rent Prices Efficiently

Raising rent for tenants is one of the sensitive topics that most landlords dislike. It can create a situation where tenants may feel blindsided by the unforeseen increase in costs. Nevertheless, property owners are often forced to raise the rent in order to keep up with the rising standard of living. For instance, supplies and overhead expenses are climbing every year. As a consequence, landlords will lose more of their revenues. Given their business-oriented mindset, it’s completely understan...

California legislature passes bill to protect renters who call 9-1-1

California lawmakers on Thursday unanimously passed a bill to protect tenants from being thrown out of their homes for calling 9-1-1 in an emergency. The proposal, which now moves to Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk, takes aim at local ordinances that can result in a tenant being labeled a “nuisance” — a cause for eviction — because they called for help. “People should be able to call for help without fear of losing their home,” said Assemblyman David Chiu, D-San Francisco, in an interview Thursday.
