  • Housing market inventory, while previously unable to meet buyer demand, is now in excess supply as buyers pull back. (Prashant Gopal & Catarina Saraiva, Bloomberg)
  • If the laws from New York’s Division of Housing and Community Renewal take effect, property owners may no longer be able to set the rents on units they create from combining stabilized apartments. (Miriam Hall, Bisnow)
