Impact of Redlining in Numbers
Neighborhoods that were redlined have gained $212,000 less home equity since the 1980s, according to a new study. Redlining was the systemic practice, written into law, of blocking services from certain communities—literally ones designated with a red line.
COVID Real Estate Scams
The con is older than the internet–but all the more powerful in a real estate industry locked down by a pandemic and increasingly dependent on cyber-transactions. The digital scam nearly upended a deal just hours before closing.
Rent By the Hour, Not What You Think!
After months of coronavirus lockdowns, a new kind of real estate service is on the rise–apartment rentals by the hour.
