Self-employed home buyers may soon find it’s much easier to get a home loan. A bipartisan pair of Senators introduced legislation that will give lenders more options for verifying a person’s income.

California lawmakers approved a bill that helps victims of last year’s devastating wildfires, and helps PG&E avoid financial disaster. Critics are calling it a PG&E bailout because of the October 8th wind-driven wildfires in Northern California. But, without the bill, PG&E could fall into bankruptcy and leave uninsured fire victims without any recourse for compensation. This legislation makes all of our utilities along with their ratepayers ultimately responsible for the cost of wildfires, but passes more of the cost onto the utilities if state officials determine they are to blame for the fires.

South Africa is moving ahead with a plan to seize land from white farmers without paying them for the land. The South African president claims it is not a land grab and denies that it’s an assault on the private ownership of property.

A program designed to clean up blight in Detroit is also keeping a lot of potentially great homes off the market.

It can be used to create sculptural features in bathrooms, and energy efficient walls that are also less likely to sustain damage during a disaster.

California voters could be in for a battle over Proposition 13, but not for another couple of years.

HUD Chief Ben Carson is proposing a major shift to the enforcement of the Fair Housing Act, as a way to tackle the affordable housing crisis.

Seattle is enlisting the help of big tech companies to help solve the city’s affordable housing crisis.
