In this week's Real Estate News Brief... how a recession would impact housing, what contractors say about the labor shortage, and the best settings for your air conditioner.
 
We begin with economic news from this past week.
 
The latest Case-Shiller report on home prices shows that prices rose at a slower pace in June. Prices in 17 of the cities in the 20-city index only rose a tiny bit. That left the 12-month reading at 2.1% which is down from a previous annual pace of 2.4%. According to MarketWatch, home prices were rising three times faster a year ago at 6.3%.

Oregon has become the first state in the nation to eliminate single-family zoning. State lawmakers passed the legislation to help increase the housing supply and affordability. It’s a concept that is gaining momentum in cities and states across the nation, but is also threatening the American Dream of owning a home that’s surrounded by a yard, and maybe a white picket fence.

As experts attempt to predict the impact of a trade war on the economy, most agree that there will be both upsides and downsides for real estate.
 
Here’s a summary of recent developments on the trade war. During trade talks, China refused a deal on U.S. agricultural products. That triggered an order from President Trump to impose an additional 10% tariffs on the remaining $300 billion worth of Chinese goods not yet subject to tariffs. After that, China devalued its Yuan, and is now threatening to do more of the same if the trade war drags on.

In this week's Real Estate News Brief... new trade war repercussions, a big dip in mortgage rates, and disappointing news for Equifax data breach victims.
 
We don’t have a lot of economic reports from this past week, but there sure is a lot happening with the trade war and potential impacts on our economy. The situation with China has escalated rapidly -- first with failed trade talks, then with President Trump’s call for new tariffs on Chinese goods. Trump wanted China to agree to buy U.S. agricultural products at the talks, but when that deal didn’t happen, he called for 10% tariffs on $300 billion worth of goods not yet subject to those duties.

The use of “smart windows” is about to blast off. These windows have wifi-connected glass that can do all sorts of things, like adjust from clear, for a beautiful view, to frosted, for privacy. They can even call police if a burglar breaks in. And the companies making these windows are installing them on buildings around the world. Analysts say the use of this smart glass is about to experience revolutionary growth over the next ten years.

The Federal Reserve Bank announced plans to create a real-time payment system to make check-cashing and other transactions faster. It would be an upgrade from the current Fed system which is slow to settle a transaction and would be run like a utility. It would also compete with a network recently launched by six big banks called The Clearing House. Critics say the Fed system would be redundant and would interfere with the private sector effort that’s already underway.

Just after the Federal Reserve announced a quarter percent rate cut, President Trump announced more tariffs. This sparked fear on Wall Street of an escalating trade war, which sent the S&P and NASDAQ Composite tumbling down, marking their worst week of the year. 
 
Trump announced that starting September 1, $300 billion worth of Chinese goods, ranging from toys to iPhones, will be slapped with a 10% tariff. This is on top of the existing 25% tariff on $250 Billion worth of imports.

The Federal Reserve cut its benchmark interest rates by a quarter point yesterday, the first time since the 2008 financial crisis. This marks a dramatic shift in monetary policy. But President Trump argued that it wasn’t enough to support his administration's trade wars and currency battles.
 
Just after the Federal Reserve changed course from tightening the money supply, to lowering rates in an effort to encourage more spending, the President offered more criticism to Fed Chair Jerome Powell.
