triggered by a stock market crash, looms over 2020 for 2 reasons: (1) the stock

shoppers out of stores and onto the internet, leading a retail transformation resulting
in a wake of dead malls. Now the Seattle-based company is buying more of those

housing bubble may be on the verge or bursting in some markets, like coastal
California. Overall, U.S. home prices in the second quarter were up 4.3% vs. a
year earlier to $279,600, with 16 markets posting declines. That’s a slight
appreciation dip from averaging 5.5% annual gains in 2016-2018, a period when

During the recent recession, California’s legislature has amended the real estate anti-deficiency laws in the Code of Civil Procedure in three important ways:
No Deficiency Judgment for Approved Short Sales: SB 931 added subsection "e" to CCP Section 580, which prohibited any first lender who approved a short sale from obtaining a deficiency judgment against the seller.
