The federal government issued new guidelines on the CDC eviction moratorium.

The Small Business Administration says it has begun PPP loan forgiveness after some frustrating delays. The Paycheck Protection Program was introduced in April, and tens of thousands of small business owners have been waiting to have those loans forgiven.

There’s a new twist on the old timeshare. It’s a start-up called Pacaso that takes the timeshare model and expands it to something closer to owning your own single-family vacation home. Instead of owning a second home and all the costs that go along with it, Pacaso finds co-owners to share the expense. Scheduling for use of the home is flexible, and allows for much greater access than a timeshare. And, Pacaso takes care of all the management.

Home buyers searching for affordable markets may be changing the political landscape. A new Realtor.com analysis shows that blue state home buyers are searching for new homes in red states. It’s unclear if these search results represent actual migrations, but they could indicate a shift in voter preferences for several important swing states. And that could have an impact on the upcoming presidential election.

Official reports on consumer prices show that inflation is on the low side, but the true cost of living feels a little different. The cost of things that people are actually buying have risen sharply during the pandemic -- things like food, cleaning products, used cars, medical care, and real estate. Although the Fed feels that we’re likely to see an extended period of low inflation, some economists say “inflation is already here.” At least one financing expert is also predicting that this low mortgage rate bonanza is about to end.

Many people have reported an unusual side effect of the pandemic. They say they’ve been having more intense dreams than normal, and can often remember them when they wake up. Sleep experts call them “quarandreams.” And oddly enough, many of them are focused on “real estate.”
 
Sleep experts say it’s not surprising that people are dreaming more vividly right now. It could be due to more stress because of the virus, more time to sleep without interruption, or less noise to interfere with sleep. Or maybe something else entirely. But the real estate-focused subject matter may be something to pay attention to because a house often represents our current emotional state. And according to experts, dreams are a way we send a message to ourselves about what we may want or need. In this case, Realtor.com teamed up with author and sleep analyst, Layne Dalfen, to come up with a list of common real estate dreams and what they might mean.
