    With the policy changes, securing a new home loan has become something of a volatile proposition. While 30-year fixed mortgages – the most popular type of loan among new homeowners – climbed to nearly 6% in June, they’ve since fallen back to just under 5%. “Mortgage rates remained volatile due to the tug of war between inflationary pressures and a clear slowdown in economic growth,” said Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist. “The high uncertainty surrounding inflation and other factors will likely cause rates to remain variable, especially as the Federal Reserve attempts to navigate the current economic environment.” A survey released Monday by Fannie Mae shows that both buyers and sellers are pessimistic about the current market. Only 17% of those surveyed said now is a good time to buy a home. The share of sellers who think it’s a good time to list their homes dropped to 67% in July from 76% two months prior.
    The US housing market appears to be finally cooling off after seeing its least affordable days since the '80s. The number of homes being built and sold is declining, more and more buyers are backing out of deals, and some parts of the country are finally seeing price cuts. Pantheon Macroeconomics founder and chief economist, Ian Shepherdson, has called for a 15 to 20 per cent correction in an 'overvalued' housing market, which he warns is in a state of 'meltdown' with 'cratering demand.'   In a July 26 note, he declared we're no longer in a sellers' market and, 'the housing slump is deepening, fast... [this] will not be the bottom.’ While the housing market appears to be reaching a more stable state, the ups and downs of the real estate rollercoaster have left many home owners and prospective buyers in a state of doubt and upheaval. So, DailyMail.com spoke to a panel of housing market experts about what's going on in the market and where, why, and when to buy or sell your home.  The panel of pros features...

    This is quite a time to be a season ticket holder for the San Diego Padres. Great weather, a jewel of a ballpark — and perhaps the most exciting lineup in baseball for the near future. The Padres landed the biggest prize of this year’s trade deadline — and maybe at any year’s deadline — when they acquired outfielder Juan Soto, a 23-year-old superstar who isn’t due to become a free agent until after the 2024 season. To get him, they had to send six players to Washington, including several of their top recent prospects. It’s a massive move for an organization that has never won a World Series — but now adds Soto to a team that has Fernando Tatis Jr., Manny Machado and Yu Darvish. San Diego also traded for closer Josh Hader this week. Here’s a look at the biggest buyers and sellers at this year’s deadline, and how they’ve reshaped their futures.

    ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — While the San Diego Padres and Los Angeles Dodgers were making moves during Tuesday’s trade deadline to bolster their rosters for a postseason run, Los Angeles Angels general manager Perry Minasian was left answering questions after his team went into sell mode. Despite having two of the top players in the game in AL MVPs Mike Trout and Shohei Ohtani, the Angels are hurtling toward their seventh straight losing season. “I still think there’s talent here. We have to find a way to stay healthy,” Minsasian said. “We’ve got to find more depth. I’ve got to build a better roster and that’s something that we’re going to attack this offseason.” The Halos went into Tuesday night’s game against the Oakland Athletics a season-high 16 games under .500 at 43-59. They are in fourth place in the AL West after being tied for the lead with Houston in the middle of May. While some wondered if Ohtani would be on his way out of Orange County, the Angels did trade pitchers Noah Syndergaard, Raisel Iglesias and...
    For the first time in years, the tables are starting to turn in the Bay Area’s insane housing market — as prices drop, some sellers have been forced to make concessions. They’re chipping in to help pay closing costs and even to buy points to lower mortgage rates — all to convince increasingly reluctant buyers that the time is right to purchase a home. “I’m seeing sellers concerned about prices dropping,” said San Jose-based real estate agent Gustavo Gonzalez, who works with both buyers and sellers. While he said recent price drops have not been drastic, sellers are having to reset their expectations of what they can get for their property. The change comes as June home sale prices dropped from the previous month in all of the five core Bay Area counties, according to new data from CoreLogic and DQNews. Meanwhile inflation and interest rates remain high, giving many potential buyers pause. But there’s no reason to assume the real estate market is about to come crashing down, experts say. After all, prices are still extremely high. “The market...
    Giants Rumors: They might not be sellers but buyers? At 51-51, the Giants are on the precipice of the playoff race while also battling against selling at the MLB trade deadline. They are 4 games out of a Wild Card spot. For days now, it’s been widely believed that the Giants would indeed sell at the Trade Deadline after a 7-game losing streak. However, they took 3 of 4 games from the rebuilding Cubs and now might buy. That’s how it sounds according to MLB Insider Mark Feinsand. San Francisco has been very quiet to this point leading up to the Trade Deadline. A rival exec is under the impression that the Giants are not going to trade Carlos Rodón, and its possible they dont sell at all. Entering today, SF is 51-51, four games out of a Wild Card spot. — Mark Feinsand (@Feinsand) August 2, 2022 Giants Rumors: Why would they buy at the deadline? This does mesh with another report earlier today about the Giants being dark horse contenders for Juan Soto. While it’s unlikely they get...
    MIAMI (AP) — The Miami Marlins might be sellers. They might be buyers. They have no idea. Marlins general manager Kim Ng said Saturday night that she’s been making and fielding calls in advance of Major League Baseball’s trade deadline, but that no moves — either acquiring players or sending them out — are pending, yet. “Listen, I’m not sure that we’re going to make some huge deal,” Ng said. “It has to be about value that’s coming back. It has to be about the future as well as today. So I just can’t say that there’s anything imminent at this point.” The trade deadline is Tuesday. Miami’s scheduled starter on Sunday against the New York Mets is right-hander Pablo Lopez, who has been the subject of many trade rumors. Ng made it clear: The Marlins aren’t shopping Lopez. But she also made clear that the Marlins are listening to everyone. “I think a deal that really helps us has to present itself,” Ng said. “We’re not out there looking to move Pablo. But, as I’ve said before, we’re listening...
    The St. Louis Cardinals weren’t involved in the Luis Castillo trade but they will be affected by it in their pursuit of other big deals. Luis Castillo was probably never going to end up pitching for the St. Louis Cardinals. Despite the Cardinals’ need for an arm like his and them having the firepower to get a deal done, the Cincinnati Reds probably wouldn’t have preferred to deal him within the division. Instead, Castillo ended up with the Seattle Mariners for a pretty nice haul. What does it mean for the Cardinals? Unfortunately, it could mean that to get the best starting pitchers available, St. Louis will have to empty the prospect tank.Cardinals will have to part with some very good players to majorly upgrade their rosterWhether it’s Frankie Montas or a blockbuster for Juan Soto, the Cardinals face a challenge before the trade deadline is over. They have five of the top 100 prospects in baseball. It took baseball’s No. 18 and 93 prospects and more for the Mariners to add Castillo. The price on the high-level available players...

This year, the trade deadline is actually a couple of days later than normal, falling at 6 p.m. ET on Aug. 2 rather than its normal home at the end of July. But that’s OK with us.

    Online sales have come a long way since eBay sold its first item — a broken laser pointer — in 1995. Back then, the company was known as AuctionWeb, and it quickly became a popular place to scout out collectible items such as rare Beanie Babies. Today, there is no limit to the things to sell on eBay, which hosts 1.6 billion listings in its marketplace. But it’s not the only place to sell online. Craigslist offers free online classified ads in cities worldwide, and Facebook Marketplace allows users of the popular social media site to buy and sell locally. All these sites are international in reach, and online selling can be a way for people around the globe to make money and declutter their homes. “I recently renovated my house, and there was so much stuff … I sold on eBay and Facebook Marketplace,” says Meera Watts, who lives in Singapore and is the founder of Siddhi Yoga.

    RIDLEY PARK, Pa. (CBS) — Safety concerns have forced a bridge in Delaware County to suddenly shut down. The Sellers Avenue Bridge in Ridley Park is closed indefinitely after PennDOT inspectors found some of the beams deteriorating. The bridge was originally built in 1904 before being reconstructed in 1952. Plans were already in the works to replace the bridge. PennDOT will start accepting construction proposals early next year.
    Amazon is suing administrators of more than 10,000 global Facebook groups for allegedly paying people to post fake product reviews.  The retail giant has begun legal action at Washington King County, near its Seattle headquarters, against owners of the 'nefarious' Facebook groups.  Members are reportedly persuaded to post positive reviews on Amazon stores in the US, the UK, Germany, France, Italy, Spain and Japan, in exchange for money or free gifts. Amazon told MailOnline that the Facebook groups are run by 'brokers' who are providing their services to third-party sellers on Amazon.  Using their Facebook groups, the brokers are orchestrating glowing reviews for the third-party sellers' products, which makes the sellers appear more prominently on Amazon's website and search engines, and in turn boosts their sales. One of the groups identified in the lawsuit is 'Amazon Product Review', which had more than 43,000 members until Meta took down the group earlier this year AMAZON TARGETS 'FAKE REVIEW FRAUDSTERS' Amazon hosts third-party sellers - independent sellers who offer a variety of new, used and refurbished items.  Some of these third-partly sellers are...

(Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/Getty Images) The Toronto Blue Jays could aim their focus at acquiring any of these three players from teams that look like potential surprise sellers this season. Firing Charlie Montoyo was the first major Toronto Blue Jays move of July. It was a big surprise. Equally as surprising is how some other expected contenders are tanking much harder than Toronto. The Blue Jays aren’t one of those clubs that look like they’ll fall on their face. They’re in it until the bitter end. This means calling up the teams on the verge of collapse, making a deal, and reaping the rewards. Exactly who from these surprise sellers should the Blue Jays target?

(Photo by Jamie Sabau/Getty Images) The Houston Astros could look to trade for some surprise sellers at the trade deadline or some players that may not have been on the trade block until recently. The Houston Astros are a well-oiled machine. Even after losing one of the best players in the sport in Carlos Correa, they have gone 58-30 in the first 88 games of the season and they have an 11-game lead on the Mariners in the AL West. However, largely due to injuries, the club has a few areas that they need to address before the August 2 trade deadline.

    In this article RDFNStockton, CaliforniaDenisTangneyJr | iStock | Getty ImagesAfter the frenzy of bidding wars, the U.S. housing market is starting to cool, particularly along the West Coast, as mortgage interest rates rise. That's forcing some sellers to adjust. "Sellers have to be more realistic," said Bill Kowalczuk, real estate broker at Coldwell Banker Warburg.

    After losing four straight to the Tampa Bay Rays, it’s time for the Red Sox to take a long look in the mirror. A few months ago, the Boston Red Sox were coined likely trade deadline sellers and their season effectively over in May. That was the case…until it wasn’t. Boston went on a memorable early-season run to cut down their Wild Card deficit and, eventually, move their way into playoff positioning. Four losses against the Rays does not change that, despite how it feels. The Sox are only a half-game behind the Blue Jays as of this writing for the final Wild Card spot. The sky is not falling, yet. But a critical series against the division-leading Yankees looms. Heading into the All-Star Break, what should Chaim Bloom’s strategy be moving forward? Can this team, as currently constructed, realistically make a deep run? Could Red Sox actually be sellers at trade deadline?This feels like a pretty definitive no, purely because even with a series loss in New York over the weekend, Boston would remain in solid Wild Card positioning....
    Washington (CNN Business)Amazon has offered to change its business practices in Europe to resolve two ongoing antitrust investigations targeting the company in the EU, according to European Commission officials.Under the proposed changes affecting the EU market, Amazon has offered not to use data gathered from third-party sellers for its own retail decisions, such as figuring out what products to sell under Amazon's private label. Critics have said Amazon's knowledge about what products third-parties sell the most allows the company to leap in and offer those same products itself, at the expense of other sellers.Amazons Ring has provided doorbell footage to police without owners consent 11 times so far this yearAmazon has also offered to treat all sellers equally when determining which one to feature most highly in its product listings, in a space on its website known as the Buy Box.

    Several business owners in Maryland will face no further prosecution after reaching an agreement to refund payments for work that was unfulfilled or failed to match expectations, the Attorney General's Office announced. The AG’s Consumer Protection Division has reached a settlement of the civil charges against Christopher Engel, Karol Engel, Matthew Dihel, MOCHA Furniture Limited Liability Company, Urbana custom décor Limited Liability Company, and Farmstead Custom Furniture LLC in Frederick County, according to AG Brian Frosh. Frosh said the group was "collectively charged with violating the Consumer Protection Act for collecting deposits and other monies from consumers to build custom furniture, and then failing to either provide consumers their ordered goods or to refund their money.” As part of the scheme, the companies also were accused of intentionally going out of business to avoid repaying customers, and later opening under new names. The settlement will require the Engels, Dihel, and the companies to return to consumers all the money the consumers paid for furniture they did not receive or that was received but did not conform to their orders, as...

This could be a thrilling MLB trade deadline for the New York Mets. It should be. The team faded in the last two months of the 2021 campaign. They need to learn from their mistakes and have a more productive trade deadline this year than last season’s acquisitions of Javier Baez, Trevor Williams, and Rich Hill. The Mets are fully expected to do whatever it takes to make themselves better. While we shouldn’t expect them to sell off too many major pieces in their farm, there are plenty of guys from surprise sellers they can add for cheaper.

After a few short yet rough weeks, they climbed back into contention and now appear to be right there along with the rest of the World Series contenders ready to buy over the next few weeks. The Red Sox have some of the same needs they have had all year but also a growing hole in the rotation due to injuries.

    It was back on June 7 that Chicago White Sox general manager Rick Hahn first was asked about the possibility of a summer sell-off. “I really hope I don’t have to sit here in six weeks and eat these words,” he said. “But I don’t foresee us being in sell mode come the (trade) deadline, even with the (poor) run differential.” A couple of weeks remain before that deadline, but it appears as though the upcoming stretch of games against American League Central rivals will decide whether Hahn needs to make a tough call on the team’s direction. Monday’s opener of a three-game series against the division-leading Minnesota Twins kicked off the 15-game, eat-or-not-eat stretch, bringing a renewed sense of urgency to the clubhouse. “The approach is the same,” manager Tony La Russa said before the game. “We’ve known we’re going to finish the last two weeks (before the All-Star break) in our division, seven games against the first-place team, so we’re excited. “It’s as close as we’ve been as a unit being competitive.

    New York (CNN Business)It wasn't too long ago when some movie fans found that the easiest and cheapest way to watch movies in a post-Blockbuster world was to rent DVDs from Redbox kiosks at the drug store and other retailers. Ahh, the early 2010's. The rise of Netflix and other streaming services pretty much killed that business though.But Redbox is back. It's built its own streaming operation. And the company's stock is somewhat inexplicably one of the hottest on Wall Street, even as Netflix (NFLX) has plummeted.Shares of Redbox are up more than 20% this year, about 55% in the past month and nearly 200% in the past three months. That's in stark contrast to the 70% plunge for Netflix, the worst stock in the S&P 500. Disney (DIS), which has its own the vaunted Disney+ streaming service, is down 40%, making it the biggest dog of the Dow. Other media companies with streaming services, including Paramount Global, Peacock owner Comcast (CMCSA) and CNN parent Warner Bros. Discovery, which has both HBO Max and Discovery+, have fallen sharply in 2022...
    Bay Area home buyers faced with skyrocketing real estate prices and mortgage costs that have more than doubled over the last year appear to be hitting their limit, pushing more home sellers to do what has become almost unthinkable in the region’s white-hot market: cut prices. “A lot of buyers are being priced out,” said Nicole Bachaud, a market analyst for Zillow. “Demand is definitely pulling back.” Average U.S. mortgage rates hit 5.78% last week. With the typical home in the San Jose area valued at $1.7 million in May, the average monthly payment on a new mortgage reached a whopping $9,136 per month — nearly 60% higher than May of last year and more than 5% higher than April of this year, according to Zillow. Typical home values have risen more than 22% in the last year. In the San Francisco area, the typical home value of $1.5 million in May means a new-mortgage payment of $8,117 per month, more than 50% higher than May last year and more than 5% higher than April. Home values in the area...
    In this article ETH= BTC.CM= Selim Korkutata | Anadolu Agency | Getty ImagesBitcoin climbed on Tuesday after a slew of negative headlines had pushed the cryptocurrency to a new 2022 low over the weekend. The price of bitcoin jumped more than 7% to $21,617.70 around 10:50 a.m. ET, according to Coin Metrics. Over the weekend, it fell as low as $17,958.05. That was the lowest it has fallen since December 2020. Meanwhile, ether rose more than 7% to $1,185.17. The moves arrive on the heels of bearish headlines for the cryptocurrency industry that began with pressure from macroeconomic forces. Wholesale prices rose at a near record annual pace last week and the Federal Reserve hiked its benchmark interest rate by three-quarters of a percentage point, the biggest increase since 1994.

    Q: My husband is a real estate agent. Last week, the realty firm where he works had five sets of homebuyers cancel their home sales. My husband’s homebuyers canceled first. It’s infuriating. He worked on behalf of his homebuyers for over a year.   Today, I learned all the homebuyers “are walking away” from their earnest money deposit. Where does the canceling homebuyer’s money go? To the sellers or realty firms? A: It is not uncommon for a homebuyer to walk away from a sale and proclaim, “They can keep my deposit.” “They” means the sellers. Full stop. Conversely, your husband, a real estate agent, can only be paid by his agency. Lest we forget, he chose commission-only sales. No sale, no paycheck. I hope your husband was polite and professional when his homebuyers canceled. It is the best reaction. If so, the homebuyers might turn around and use him to buy another property. If not, they won’t ever return. The real estate purchase contract, fully executed, describes what happens when the homebuyer defaults. It is straightforward. In California, the...
    Rising interest rates for mortgages are posing challenges for both homebuyers and sellers. “We’ve seen a huge slowdown in demand. In fact, I’m talking to real estate agents who are canceling open houses because they say nobody is showing up right now,” said Diana Olick, who has covered real estate for CNBC for two decades. More Business News More Real Estate News Average long-term U.S. mortgage rates saw their biggest one-week jump in 35 years, as the Federal Reserve this week raised its key rate by three-quarters of a point in an attempt to tame inflation. The hike was the biggest at time since 1994, sending 30-year mortgage rates to 5.78% this week, from 5.23% last week. Mortgage rates have not been this high since November 2008, during the housing crisis. “For first time buyers, they’re definitely being sidelined,” Olick said, adding that mortgage rates have been rising since the beginning of the year. “The affordability has weakened dramatically.” The rising rates come as home prices, which have been higher than normal, are starting to cool off, Olick...
    In this article WMT SHLDQ Over the past year, large-scale robberies have swept through stores like Louis Vuitton in San Francisco's Union Square and a nearby Nordstrom, which was robbed by 80 people. Law enforcement and retailers have warned the public that this isn't traditional shoplifting. Rather, what they're seeing is theft organized by criminal networks. And there's a reason it's on the rise. "What fuels this as an enterprise is the ease of reselling stolen merchandise on online marketplaces," said Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul, who convened a national task force of state attorneys to make it easier to investigate across state lines. "It's no longer the age where it's done at flea markets or in the alley or in parking lots." Retailers say a total of $68.9 billion of products were stolen in 2019. In 2020, three-quarters said they saw an increase in organized crime and more than half reported cargo theft. Some big chains blame organized theft for recent store closures or for their decisions to limit hours. For the U.S. Government's Homeland Security Investigations...
