California’s landmark mandate for rooftop solar panels on all new homes may have a big loophole. The requirement is set to take effect on January 1st, but the utility district in Sacramento wants to expand an exemption that allows for the use of off-site solar farms. Critics say it will reduce the benefits of the mandate, but the proposal is getting support from home builders who want the option to keep construction costs down.

In this week's Real Estate News Brief... why the current market is great for sellers, what is happening with apartment rents, and how Apple is partnering with California on affordable housing.
 
 
We begin with economic news from this past week.
 
The latest report on the trade deficit shows that it was down almost 5% to a 5-month low in September. It fell from $55-billion to $52.5 billion. The shrinking trade deficit is mostly due to the U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods. MarketWatch reports that the gap is growing with other countries. Despite efforts to decrease the U.S. trade gap, economists expect the U.S. to post an even bigger trade gap for 2019, than it did last year.

We’ve heard the advice for years — that clearing brush and creating fire breaks will protect homes from wildfires. But a new look at recent California wildfires shows that fuel breaks are doing very little to protect homes because the fires are wind-driven. And you can’t block the wind. That’s led to one fire expert’s advice to place more importance on fire-proofing your home.

A San Francisco start-up called Doorstead is hoping to take over the property management industry. It’s promising a risk-free experience for landlords by giving them rent guarantees. That means landlords will collect rent whether tenants are in place or not. It’s something that might help landlords sleep at night, but one of our Real Wealth Network Directors, Tim Horvath, says they may offer a false sense of security.

We’ve seen a lot of volatility in the global economy these past few months.

People across California now have access to an earthquake early warning system. Governor Gavin Newsom launched the statewide system on the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, this last October 17th. This new system uses a network of seismic sensors that deliver a warning through a smartphone app. It’s not a big warning, but it could give you a few extra seconds to “duck, cover, and hold.”

The number of single home buyers is trending higher, along with demand for smaller homes. People who live alone account for 28% of all U.S. households right now. That’s some 36 million homes, and that number is expected to grow by another 5 million in the next ten years. According to Builder.com, it’s a trend that should be factored in to our future housing needs.

Turning an empty garage into a rental unit has become a lot easier in California. New legislation has eliminated a lot of roadblocks for the construction of so-called accessory dwelling units or ADUs. And with more and more people ridesharing and choosing not to own a car, many homeowners can easily become landlords with a garage conversion. This will benefit the homeowners, and help create much-needed affordable housing.

We begin with economic news from this past week, and a big drop in housing starts. The Commerce Department reported a 9% decline in October, mostly due to a slowdown in multi-family construction. Single-family home construction was higher for a fourth straight month but the overall number for housing starts plummeted from a 12-year high.

New predictions about the world economy show that global growth will likely continue to slow down. The International Monetary Fund lowered its growth rate estimate to 3%, and said it could continue to decline next year if the trade war continues. But there could be good news on the trade dispute. President Trump announced a partial trade deal this last week. It hasn’t been written down or signed yet, and is reportedly very limited in scope.

As House Democrats dig deeper into their impeachment proceedings, some investors have become nervous about the potential impact of an impeachment on the economy, including the stock market and real estate. But, some real estate experts in our network don’t think it will have much of an impact. The inquiry is based on allegations by a whistleblower that President Trump abused his power as president when he asked the Ukrainian president to investigate his re-election rival, Joe Biden and son, Hunter.

A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order against a Utah-based company that offers “free” celebrity-endorsed fix-and-flip educational seminars that can end up costing thousands of dollars. The Federal Trade Commission and the Utah Division of Consumer Protection asked for the injunction as they pursue charges against Zurixx LLC and its affiliates. The complaint accuses Zurixx of misleading and deceptive conduct that includes the use of celebrities as bait to lure consumers to their seminars where they pitched more expensive workshops and services.

What happened to WeWork? Less than two months ago, the co-working giant was the nation’s most valuable tech startup with plans to go public. Now, IPO plans have been called off, the founder and CEO has stepped down, and the company is trying to borrow $4 billion to stay afloat. It’s one of several start-ups with a high-growth, no-profit story and a lesson for investors about the importance of fundamentals.

If your real estate adventures go beyond our national borders, beware of bubble-risk cities. Swiss bank UBS just released its latest Global Real Estate Bubble Index, and seven cities are in the high-risk category.

With the worst of the 2019 fire season still ahead of us because of Santa Ana winds, many California homeowners are scrambling to replace cancelled fire insurance policies. State officials say insurance companies have dropped more than 340,000 policies over the past four years because of the wildfire risk. Others are being offered insurance at skyrocketing rates.

Airbnb is joining the big leagues next year with an IPO. It had previously announced that it “might” go public this year, but the company has pushed that plan into next year. The experts say it’s probably due to an SEC rule-change request that would give Airbnb hosts an opportunity to participate in the IPO.

The Federal Reserve cut short-term interest rates by another quarter point on September 18th. It was the second rate cut this year to offset a global economic slowdown, weaker business investments, and the effects of President Trump’s trade war with China. But was it enough to appease a President who’s been clamoring for negative rates?

The next recession isn’t expected to devastate the housing market like the last one, but a new analysis shows that some markets are more at risk than others.
