Housing Insecurity Ahead?

first_imgSign up for DS News Daily The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago Zillow recently released a report highlighting the problems that the expiration of government aid is incurring. According to the real estate experts, dark days are ahead when it comes to renters being able to pay their housing. This could have potential implications not just for those directly impacted, but for owner-investors and the larger housing industry that relies on some renters moving up to become homeowners.The report revealed that during this past month of June, 32 million Americans received unemployment benefits from the U.S. government. Yet even with this federal aid, more renters were reported to have been late or completely delinquent in paying their rents than at any other time since the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic.Zillow recently released a report highlighting the problems that the expiration of government aid is incurring. According to the real estate experts, dark days are ahead for housing. During this past June, 32 million Americans received unemployment benefits from the U.S. government. Yet even with this federal aid, more renters were reported to have been late or completely delinquent in paying their rents than at any other time since the onslaught of the coronavirus pandemic.The bad news continues, with the report predicting that even more renters will be unable to pay on time—if at all—in the weeks ahead. The main reason for this cloudy prediction is that boosted government unemployment aid has expired.More missed payments will likely lead to an increase in housing insecurity. The ramifications of this will not only directly affect renters but also rental investors and owners who also have to make ends meet and rely on renters’ payments in order to do so.  Zillow economist Joshua Clark voiced his take on what exactly is happening, and why: “The rental market has been more affected by the coronavirus pandemic than the for-sale side appears to have been. The steady climb of the past few years has come to an end as rent growth has slowed nationally and prices have outright fallen in a few markets. The saving grace has so far been government aid and eviction freezes, which have provided a lifeline for those who are out of work. But much of that aid has expired, putting many renters and workers who rely on the rental market continuing apace in a vulnerable position.”Rachel Briseño Bruno, a San Antonio-based Realtor, further commented on the current times: ”This is an incredibly stressful time for so many, especially when it comes to people’s homes, the place we go to be safe. Many landlords we work with own one or two properties as an investment for retirement or a child’s college fund, and they are on the hook for mortgage payments on those homes. Losing just one tenant who may have lost a job and moved back home or in with a friend can have an enormous impact.” in Daily Dose, Featured, Journal, News Servicers Navigate the Post-Pandemic World 2 days ago The Best Markets For Residential Property Investors 2 days ago Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Andy Beth Miller is an experienced freelance editor and writer.

NBA playoffs 2019/Raptors vs. 76ers: 3 things that could decide the series

first_img NBA playoffs 2019: Joel Embiid says 76ers ‘can win it all’ NBA playoffs 2019: Updated odds to win the championship Philadelphia forward Mike Scott also could be limited as he left Game 5 against the Nets with a bruised foot and did not return.The Raptors, on the other hand, can rely on their backups — including Fred VanVleet and Serge Ibaka — for long stretches, which could present a problem for Philadelphia. Two of the top teams in the NBA will face off in the Eastern Conference semifinals.The Raptors have been considered title contenders since they acquired Kawhi Leonard last summer. They met expectations all season long and advanced into the second round by topping the Magic in a five-game series.center_img Here are three things that could decide the series between Toronto and Philadelphia.Joel Embiid’s healthJoel Embiid’s health continues to be in question.Embiid missed five of the team’s last seven regular-season games, dealt with knee soreness throughout the series against Brooklyn and was even held out of Philadelphia’s Game 3 win.The 25-year-old, however, excelled on both ends in the final two matchups of the first round to help Philadelphia advance.”We are the recipient of Jo trying to inch along slowly and buy time,” Sixers coach Brett Brown said earlier this month (via The Philly Voice). “You win a game, two more days, you win a game, three more days, you might drop one, four more days. How do you deliver him responsibly to a later date in ultimately what you hope will be a deep playoff run?”It’s not as clear cut as you thought it would be on ‘how do you maintain a fitness base and still get his knee rest?’ What do we do to help him most now? I believe a solid plan is in place that can deliver him responsibly, incrementally to later dates.”The 76ers will certainly need their center in the lineup and consistently on the court against the Raptors.The play of the starsBoth teams in this series feature multiple All-Stars.  The Raptors are led by the two-headed attack of Leonard and Kyle Lowry. Forward Pascal Siakam had a breakout season for Toronto while the team improved its frontline by acquiring Marc Gasol in a February deal with the Grizzlies.The 76ers offense is powered by Embiid and fellow young star Ben Simmons. Philadelphia also made a pair of in-season additions, trading for Jimmy Butler and Tobias Harris in preparation for the playoffs.The stars in this series will determine which team advances to the conference finals.The 76ers’ lack of depthPhiladelphia has a thin bench.The 76ers did not have a deep rotation to begin the season, and their second unit was depleted even further after they were forced to send away multiple key role-players in the deals that brought in Butler as well as Harris. Meanwhile, the 76ers have arguably the best starting lineup in basketball. They appeared to be in trouble after they dropped their first playoff game to the Nets but rebounded with four straight victories to move on.Toronto came away with wins three of the four times the teams met in the regular season.
