    Deutsche Bank has begun an internal review of the personal banker to President Trump and his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, regarding a 2013 real estate purchase she made. The inquiry into Rosemary Vrablic focuses on a property she bought from a company that was partly owned by Kushner, who right now serves as a senior adviser to the president. Banks typically restrict employees from conducting personal business with their clients because of possible conflicts of interest. Deutsche Bank claims they were not aware of the transaction until being contacted by the New York Times, which reported the story on Sunday. “The bank will closely examine the information that came to light on Friday and the fact pattern from 2013,”...
    By: KDKA-TV News Staff PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — The impact of the Coronavirus pandemic on businesses has resulted in fewer people in the workplace and an explosion of available space. KDKA’s John Shumway looked into this situation for more. It can almost be depressing driving through some sections of town right now — but there is hope.

    Between the federal government and the Federal Reserve, about $10 trillion has been pumped into the US economy to prevent a pandemic-fueled economic collapse. Judging by the stock market, you would think we’ve sidestepped a 2008-size disaster. But stocks, at least in the short run, are rarely a good indication of what’s festering inside the US economy. A better oracle is certain aspects of the bond market, particularly those that are tied to real estate. And just like in the prelude to the 2008 collapse, when the stock market was at all-time highs, this particular market is signaling a warning sign that the economy is headed for trouble. In 2008, the canary in the coal mine was declining residential...

    The numbers: The index of pending home sales rose 16.6% in June as compared with May, the National Association of Realtors reported Wednesday. The increase comes after pending home sales experienced the largest monthly rise on record last month, the trade group said. Compared with a year ago, contract signings were up 6.3%, a sign of how sharply the market has rebounded from its coronavirus-related low. “It is quite surprising and remarkable that, in the midst of a global pandemic, contract activity for home purchases is higher compared to one year ago,” Lawrence Yun, the National Association of Realtors’ chief economist, said in the report. “Consumers are taking advantage of record-low mortgage rates resulting from the Federal Reserve’s maximum...

    This article is reprinted by permission from NerdWallet. In December 2019, I described 10 housing and mortgage trends to watch for in 2020. But “deadly pandemic” was missing from my bingo card. Some of the trends I predicted are irrelevant now because COVID-19 disrupted the economy. Time for a midyear update. In a world altered by the pandemic, here are trends that mortgage borrowers, and home buyers and sellers, will confront in the second half of 2020. Trends that COVID-19 scrambled or made worse One of the 2020 forecasts was that mortgage rates wouldn’t change much, and the pandemic rendered that one flat-out wrong. Something more interesting happened to three other predictions: COVID-19 rendered them right but for unexpected reasons. 1....

    Billionaire David Koch’s wife repeatedly schemed against the Republican megadonor in the months before he died, forcing his nurses to lock him in a room during a dinner party and using code words to hide real estate and travel plans, the couple’s former bodyguard claims.   The stunning allegations against Julia Koch, 58, were leveled in an Equal Employment Opportunity Commission complaint filed last week by Felicia Racine, a 29-year-old former Koch bodyguard. In the complaint, which was obtained by the New York Daily News, Racine alleged the billionaire’s wife subjected her to gender-based discrimination and forced her to go along with several duplicitous schemes during her employment for the Koch family between January 2018 and April 2020.  “The deception...

    After being on and off the market for the last four years, an infamous San Juan Capistrano mansion has found a buyer for $3.75 million, down just over 34% from the initial asking price.

    The real estate market has been upended by the COVID-19 outbreak, which led to a mass exodus from New York City nearby suburbs. In the past four months, thousands of city residents flooded to suburbs on Long Island, Fairfield County, Westchester, and northern New Jersey, which has made those areas an attractive destination for buyers. According to a New York Times report, it has become a “seller’s market,” with multiple competing offers for many homes that may not have drawn as much attention pre-pandemic. The demand for single-family rentals has also skyrocketed in the wake of COVID-19. “This was a life-altering series of events which likely made an indelible mark on everyone’s psyche, not unlike what happened after...

I’m referring, of course, to the average price of a U.S. home during the stock bear market earlier this year, during which the S&P 500 SPX, +0.84% fell 34%. Over the same period the benchmark Case-Shiller U.S. National Home Price Index rose 1.0%. This index’s ability to hold its own during the bear markets is not a fluke. The index also rose in all but two of prior U.S. equity bear markets back to the mid-1950s, which is when monthly data begins for the Case-Shiller index. In one of those two exceptions, the index fell by just 0.4%. The one other time when residential real estate...
