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. Redfin used several data points to analyze the risk and came up scores for each metro that indicate which ones are likely to get hit the hardest, and which will stand strong.

Legal troubles continue for former Fox and Friends host, Clayton Morris, but is he grabbing headlines because he did something wrong, or because of his celebrity status? Investors claim that Morris and business partner, Bert Whalen, sold them run-down homes that they promised to renovate but didn’t. The latest headlines are another blow to Morris -- that his real estate business is under investigation by the FBI and two states.

A politically-charged battle has begun over housing-finance reform that would also release Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac from government control. While Trump administration proposals promise changes that will protect taxpayers from another Fannie-Freddie bailout, preserve affordable home loans like the 30-year fixed-rate mortgage, and promote competition in the housing finance sphere, Democrats say the plan will make home loans more expensive and harder to get.

The California Association of Realtors has issued another red alert about rent control legislation that’s gaining support in Sacramento.  The association is asking members to speak out against AB 1482 which, it says, will impose rent caps and difficult “just cause” eviction standards on landlords across the state. C.A.R. had previously struck a deal with lawmakers for a more balanced version of the bill, but that deal was tossed out in favor of stricter regulations supported by Governor Gavin Newsom.

We’ve been hearing a lot about negative interest rates recently, and whether the U.S. is headed there. They’ve been used by other countries recently to fight deflation. A Denmark bank has also become the world’s first to offer a home loan with negative rates. That means that borrowers pay back less every month than what they actually owe. It sounds like quite a bargain for anyone in the real estate business, but negative rates for any reason are probably not something we want to wish for.
