The SEC is proposing some changes to the definition of an accredited investor that would make it easier to qualify. Just days before Christmas, it released a proposal that includes new qualification categories that go beyond the current requirements for income and wealth. If these amendments are approved, more individuals would be allowed to invest in private placement or crowdfunding deals without sacrificing the quality of the investor pool.

A new study demonstrates how rent control can do more harm than good in local housing markets. It shows that rent control will backfire on the demand for housing by decreasing the supply, along with a host of other negative impacts that will ultimately harm the local economy. Researchers say rent control is not the answer and that policymakers need to work on “real solutions that provide tangible benefits.”

There’s a battle brewing over fire insurance in California. The state insurance commissioner issued an order that bans insurance companies from dropping policies for homes in wildfire-prone areas. Commissioner Ricardo Lara also wants the California Fair Plan Association to offer more comprehensive coverage. This last week, the insurance industry went to court to get Lara’s mandate overturned, claiming that Lara has gone beyond his authority and the mandate is a violation of the law.

Redfin is making it easier for buyers who don’t want to use an agent. It recently announced the expansion of its Redfin Direct program to the massive California real estate market. With Redfin Direct, buyers can make web-based offers on Redfin listings, without the help of an agent. That saves money for the seller, and can make a buyer’s offer more competitive.

The Justice Department is suing a city in Southern California for violating the Fair Housing Act. The lawsuit claims that Hesperia’s “Crime Free Rental Housing” ordinance discriminated against African American and Latino renters. The ordinance has been amended, but previously included a mandatory eviction clause for tenants that had engaged in criminal activity, and their families. While some landlords support programs that cut down on criminal behavior, critics claim these laws are being used by cities to make neighborhoods “whiter” and not “safer.”

The housing affordability crisis has prompted a lot of speculation that short-term rentals are to blame. Critics argue that they decrease the amount of available housing and contribute to higher home prices and higher rent levels. But a new study concludes that those concerns are unfounded. It’s a first-of-its-kind analysis commissioned by VRBO to quantify the impact of short-term rentals on the cost of housing.

If you’re looking for a really hot housing market, you’ve got a few good options in Texas. Both Dallas and Houston are booming right now. The business-friendly Lone Star state has some of the strongest job growth in the country, and that’s boosting demand for housing, including rentals. As it stands, more than half of the residents in each city are renters.

There’s now strong proof of something known as the “Amazon effect.” That’s what happens when a big company like Amazon moves into an area, creates thousands of new jobs, and launches the housing market into the stratosphere. The result is clearly seen when you look at the housing market in Arlington, Virginia, which is Amazon’s new East Coast home base, and compare that to Queens, New York, which pushed Amazon away.

Single-family build-to-rent homes are becoming more common. With a sustained demand for rentals and a lack of housing in many markets, many builders are choosing to build homes designed as rentals. So what’s the market look like for build-to-rent homes? And where is that market headed in the coming years?

Keeping a for-sale home out of the public eye is about to become more difficult. The National Association of Realtors just passed a new rule that bans “whisper listings.” According to Mansion Global, NAR may be doing this to help boost inventory at a time when we’re short on supply. But some real estate agent says it will eliminate an important home pricing strategy and the ability to give their clients privacy.

A new survey provides a snapshot of the people who’ve been buying and selling homes. Some of the top findings include an increase in older or “move up” buyers and a decrease in first-time buyers. It also shows that younger buyers frequently need help with down payments. 
 
The National Association of Realtors conducts this survey once a year. This year’s survey covers a period of time from July 2018 to June of this year and was recently released during an annual convention.

California’s landmark mandate for rooftop solar panels on all new homes may have a big loophole. The requirement is set to take effect on January 1st, but the utility district in Sacramento wants to expand an exemption that allows for the use of off-site solar farms. Critics say it will reduce the benefits of the mandate, but the proposal is getting support from home builders who want the option to keep construction costs down.

This is the year that baby boomers will pass the torch to millennials as the largest living adult generation. They will also be passing along trillions of dollars to their millennial heirs in what’s being called the Great Transfer of Wealth. A new report looks at a growing population of millennial millionaires, and how they will spend and invest their money, where they will live, and what kind of properties they will buy, along with other key features of the millennial mindset.

In this week's Real Estate News Brief... why the current market is great for sellers, what is happening with apartment rents, and how Apple is partnering with California on affordable housing.
 
 
We begin with economic news from this past week.
 
The latest report on the trade deficit shows that it was down almost 5% to a 5-month low in September. It fell from $55-billion to $52.5 billion. The shrinking trade deficit is mostly due to the U.S. tariffs on Chinese goods. MarketWatch reports that the gap is growing with other countries. Despite efforts to decrease the U.S. trade gap, economists expect the U.S. to post an even bigger trade gap for 2019, than it did last year.

We’ve heard the advice for years — that clearing brush and creating fire breaks will protect homes from wildfires. But a new look at recent California wildfires shows that fuel breaks are doing very little to protect homes because the fires are wind-driven. And you can’t block the wind. That’s led to one fire expert’s advice to place more importance on fire-proofing your home.

A San Francisco start-up called Doorstead is hoping to take over the property management industry. It’s promising a risk-free experience for landlords by giving them rent guarantees. That means landlords will collect rent whether tenants are in place or not. It’s something that might help landlords sleep at night, but one of our Real Wealth Network Directors, Tim Horvath, says they may offer a false sense of security.

We’ve seen a lot of volatility in the global economy these past few months. Headlines are warning us about all sorts of economic uncertainties, like the trade dispute, a worldwide economic slowdown, and geopolitical issues. It’s enough to upset the stock market, but should real estate investors be concerned?
