Even if you support the idea of Proposition 15, you need to at least accept that this is the absolute worst time to pass such a law. At a time when we need to foster growth of jobs and new business and make it easier for struggling business to recover from COVID quarantines - this is just about the worst thing you could consider doing to make the situation even worse. —————————————————————————————————————————————————— ➡️ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/rebelbroker/ ➡️ Twitter:...

  Will home prices jump? The best information we have right now indicates that a dramatic crash in home inventory is very likely as we move through 2020. There are only two places that homes for sale come from. First, is new construction. We are seeing a big drop off in new construction that even goes beyond what the worst expectations were leading into March. And remember, those are number for MARCH! April is likely to be even more depressing! But wait, that is only half of the real estate inventory story. The other half of our inventory question involves existing homes. If we...

I have never been a fan of pocket listings for a whole lot of reasons. In todays show, we will review the reasons why they are a bad idea for sellers. In addition, we will explore how they are also NOT a better option to help deal with our current quarantine situation. There are NO advantages to a pocket listing vs allowing your home to be listed on the MLS when it comes to maintaining very tight controls on who gets into your home. In fact, whatever benefits you are told doing a pocket listing will bring - including reducing the commission you pay - will end up costing you MORE in the long...

What does the CDC say and how should we move forward We will start with a quick look at what we can learn from the CDC website. More information is better than less, so we will go over what I am seeing reported by the CDC and try to calibrate expectations to that. Next, we will talk about how buyers, sellers and investors in real estate might move forward.

Secrets To Understanding This Expected Home Value Growth! Zillow is confident home prices will accelerate as we move into the 2020 home buying season! While the rate of growth of home prices has slowed, Zillows latest take on the market indicates that with low inventory and increasing demand, we are likely going to see the home buying market heat up substantially.

Real Estate Realities With The RebelBroker

Is legislating no more natural gas a good thing or a bad thing for Californians? The trend is becoming impossible to ignore. More and more communities are making it illegal to build new homes with natural gas. In fact, it sounds like the ultimate goal is to eliminate natural gas all together and ultimately require home owners to replace gas appliances with electric options. This seems like an odd move when California has still not solved its electric grid issues. In fact, in the ultimate irony, California is moving power plants over to natural gas . So while you won't be able to have it in...

But is it their fault?

That's right, giant Wall Street companies have huge holdings in real estate. However, while the media would like you to believe that this is some kind of sin on the part of these companies, the real sin is HOW they ended up owning so much residential real estate. Lets talk about how we got here and how it was clear from the beginning that this was likely to happen.

Way back when all of the foreclosed homes that ended up being held by the government needed to get sold, a plan was hatched. Instead of selling each property individually, they would be bundled together and sold in huge chunks. Maybe we should not judge the motivations on this decision. Perhaps the prevailing opinion was that these homes needed to be out of foreclosure and back in the usable market place as soon as possible. At least that might be one thought. But the easily anticipated consequences we see now should not have been a surprise. This basically made it impossible for anyone but huge corporations with lots of cash (or big credit) to purchase the properties. We covered this on this show at the time and pointed out the downside and possible other options that would be better for the market. It now appears that we were right all along.
