People across California now have access to an earthquake early warning system. Governor Gavin Newsom launched the statewide system on the 30th anniversary of the Loma Prieta earthquake, this last October 17th. This new system uses a network of seismic sensors that deliver a warning through a smartphone app. It’s not a big warning, but it could give you a few extra seconds to “duck, cover, and hold.”

Turning an empty garage into a rental unit has become a lot easier in California. New legislation has eliminated a lot of roadblocks for the construction of so-called accessory dwelling units or ADUs. And with more and more people ridesharing and choosing not to own a car, many homeowners can easily become landlords with a garage conversion. This will benefit the homeowners, and help create much-needed affordable housing.

New predictions about the world economy show that global growth will likely continue to slow down. The International Monetary Fund lowered its growth rate estimate to 3%, and said it could continue to decline next year if the trade war continues. But there could be good news on the trade dispute. President Trump announced a partial trade deal this last week. It hasn’t been written down or signed yet, and is reportedly very limited in scope.

As House Democrats dig deeper into their impeachment proceedings, some investors have become nervous about the potential impact of an impeachment on the economy, including the stock market and real estate.

A federal judge has issued a temporary restraining order against a Utah-based company that offers “free” celebrity-endorsed fix-and-flip educational seminars that can end up costing thousands of dollars. The Federal Trade Commission and the Utah Division of Consumer Protection asked for the injunction as they pursue charges against Zurixx LLC and its affiliates. The complaint accuses Zurixx of misleading and deceptive conduct that includes the use of celebrities as bait to lure consumers to their seminars where they pitched more expensive workshops and services.
