President Trump is calling for a major overhaul of the nation’s housing finance system. Central to that plan is the release of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from government control. They were placed into conservatorship to prevent their failures during the 2008 financial crisis. A memorandum signed by the President says: “It’s time for the United States to reform its housing finance system to reduce taxpayer risks, expand the private sector’s role, modernize housing programs, and make sustainable home ownership for American Families our benchmark of success.”

But there are privacy concerns when it comes to installing them in shared homes and apartment buildings.

They are now getting the help of a local lawmaker who introduced legislation that will force landlords to do so.

It could be a do or die lawsuit for the real estate industry. A home seller in Minnesota filed a class action lawsuit against the National Association of Realtors for anti-competitive behavior. If he prevails, the business of buying and selling homes in the United States could be vastly different than it is now. Inman contributor, Robert Hahn, says that Realtor associations would disappear, the MLS might die off, and the entire infrastructure of the residential real estate business would have to be reinvented.

A new study reveals that by the end of the century, a rise in the sea level could cause much more damage along the California coast than that of wildfires or earthquakes. The study is the first to analyze the potential damage caused by a higher sea level combined with big weather events. So if you own property near the coast, you might want to sell it within 80 years.

A major overhaul of the National Flood Insurance Program is finally underway in Congress. It’s been in desperate need of reform for years as storms grow more severe and the program falls into more debt. The new plan is expected to increase insurance rates in flood-prone areas. It could also impact home values in those areas, but the cost to insure individual homes will more accurately reflect the ongoing risk.

One of the nation’s biggest landlords is going on a buying spree this year, for single-family rentals. Amherst Residential plans to expand its footprint with the purchase of 10,000 single family homes. That’s good for Amherst investors, but maybe not so great for our tight inventory. There’s also an article The Atlantic that says institutional landlords are “not” that popular among tenants.

California lawmakers are tackling the housing shortage with a slew of bills to promote the building of more apartments. One is an upgraded version of a bill that died in committee last year. Both bills override local zoning rules to allow more development near transit stops and business districts but the new version addresses some of the concerns that killed the first version. It’s all part of an ambitious plan by Governor Newsom to build millions of new homes in the next several years.

The massive $1.5 trillion tax cut package has now had one year to work its magic on the U.S. economy, but instead of an expected economic boom, some economists are calling it a bust. One of the biggest changes in the federal tax code was a reduction in corporate taxes from 35% to 21%. That was supposed to boost corporate spending and hiring plans, and contribute to U.S. economic growth, but a new survey shows there were few long-term benefits.

Technology is changing our lives in countless ways, including the length of time we have on this planet. Humanity is fast approaching a new vortex of artificial intelligence and data collection that will turn our “life spans” into “health spans.” Engineer, physician, and entrepreneur Peter Diamandis calls it the “Next Data-Driven Healthtech Revolution” that will make a hundred years old feel like just sixty. But watch out! Living that long may also put you in the poor house if you’re not prepared.

The multifamily market is looking good this year as rental demand grows. Fannie Mae’s 2019 Multifamily Market Outlook shows the number of units coming online this year will peak at 453,000. That’s much higher than the previous two years. It says positive job growth is one of the factors driving up demand, but investors need to keep an eye on individual markets.

This may be a strong year for the home renovation business, although companies that offer those services are cautiously optimistic. The latest reports on the state of the renovation industry show a majority of those companies expect revenue growth, but they have mixed opinions about the economy.
