The nation may have more than one reason to celebrate this 4th of July. Barring any unforeseen economic upheaval in the days ahead, the beginning of July will mark the longest economic expansion in U.S. history. But that doesn’t mean it’s the largest expansion we’ve ever seen. It only means it’s the “longest.”

A recent Supreme Court ruling is being hailed as a “win” for private property rights. It is also shaking up the legal community because it overturns a legal precedent that’s been used for other cases, and weakens the whole idea of a “legal precedent.”

In this week's Real Estate News in Brief… a decision on interest rates, the best tech cities, and a growing retirement savings gap.
 
We begin with economic news from this past week, and a Federal Reserve decision to leave short-term interest rates unchanged. It said in a statement that the economy continues to expand at a “moderate” pace and the labor market “remains strong.” There are signs the economy is faltering however, including lower inflation rates. But, Fed Chief Jerome Powell doesn’t feel that monetary policy should be based on any one “data point” so he’s content to monitor the situation. The Federal Reserve Board is divided on the need for a rate cut. According to MarketWatch, nine Fed officials don’t see a rate cut this year. Eight others see one or two.

Home sales are hot for master-planned communities that have Crystal Lagoons. These man-made lakes create a beach-style environment on property miles from the ocean. There are just a hand-full of them in the U.S. right now, but their popularity is growing fast. According to a new report from RCLCO, the sales volume for homes in Crystal Lagoon communities is experiencing a year-over-year increase of almost 350%.

A North Carolina start-up is set to disrupt the world of architectural design. Higharc says it is developing software that will make it easy for anyone to create the home of their dreams without the help or expense of an architect. The program will give users the ability to combine and recombine ideas as they morph from one 3D image to another. When the desired result is achieved, the program will print ready-to-use 3D construction plans that conform to local codes.

New York landlords are gearing up for a court battle over new statewide rent control rules. These rules will have a dramatic impact on rent-regulated apartments in New York City, as well as non-rent regulated rentals across the state. Landlords say the legislation is a clear defeat for the real estate industry, but they are planning to fight back with a lawsuit.

In this week's Real Estate News in Brief... the nation marks a major economic milestone, when we might see the Fed cut rates, and why new tax laws could turn more renters into homeowners.
 
We begin with economic news from this past week and new assurances of a strong job market. The Labor Department reported a record gap between the number of job openings and people looking for work. As of April, there were a seasonally adjusted 7.449 million job openings and just 5.824 million job seekers. That’s the biggest gap on record going back to the year 2000.

We often hear about the amazing things that drones can do and will do. They can help find survivors after a natural disaster, deliver goods or medicine to remote places, or take magnificent aerial photography for real estate listings. We may even be using them as transportation someday. But what about the criminal use of drones and privacy concerns?

There’s a new short-term rental niche that’s growing more popular, and avoids most short-term rental regulations. They are high-end furnished units commonly known as corporate rentals with a minimum 31-day lease. By renting them for more than 30 days, they typically avoid short-term rental rules, although some cities are taking notice.

In this week's Real Estate News in Brief… when we might see the next rate cut, where home prices are going, and how one tiny fortune cookie lived up to its name...
 
We begin with economic news from this past week.
 
Lower mortgage rates did little to encourage home builders in April. The Census Bureau says private sector construction was down almost 2% from the previous month. The National Association of Home Builders blames that on a labor shortage, saying that homebuilders remain optimistic about the housing market. The builder’s association says there’s also concern about higher costs for materials which could “limit robust growth.”

House Democrats are pushing for a bill that may save Social Security. They say it will keep the entitlement program solvent for the rest of the century, but at what cost? Republicans say it amounts to an unfair tax increase on American workers. But this bill is gaining steam in the Democratic-controlled House. It’s called the Social Security 2100 Act, introduced a few months ago by House Democrat John Larson of Connecticut.

California could become the second state in the nation, after Oregon, to adopt statewide rent caps. The State Assembly passed AB 1482 on May 31st, after concessions were made to the California Association of Realtors. State lawmakers have been debating several rent control measures. This is the only one that survived, although just one rent control measure can be too much for a healthy rental market.

In this week's Real Estate News in Brief... lower mortgage rates that begin with a “3,” a new kind of trade war, and a new kind of partnership between house flippers and Uber drivers.
 
We begin with economic news from this past week, and home prices that are going up more slowly. The Case-Shiller 20-city index shows a seasonally-adjusted .1% rise from February to March. The current reading is 2.7% higher than March of 2018. According to MarketWatch, that’s the slowest annual pace of price growth since August 2012.

Are you ready to get rid of your gas stove? California is tackling climate change with a new mandate -- to get rid of natural gas and electrify everything with energy from solar and wind. That puts the beloved gas cooktop on the hit list, along with other gas appliances. But the alternatives may not be as undesirable as you may think -- including something called an induction cooktop that some chef’s like even better than gas.
