Meet three California startups taking on America’s child-care crisis
Meet Three California Startups Taking on America's Child-care Crisis
by Samantha Masunaga, Los Angeles Times, 1/19/2023
Before the pandemic, many venture capitalists weren’t convinced that child care was a worthwhile investment.

Is this really a problem? they’d ask founders in the industry. Aren’t people figuring it out?

“It was frustrating as parents who were experiencing the problem firsthand to hear that feedback,” said Melanie Wolff, co-founder of Playa Vista child-care startup Brella, of early conversations with investors.

This week's avg 30-yr fixed-rate: 6.15%
As inflation continues to moderate, mortgage rates declined again this week. Rates are at their lowest level since September of last year, boosting both homebuyer demand and homebuilder sentiment. Declining rates are providing a much-needed boost to the housing market, but the supply of homes remains a persistent concern.
Despite The Housing Market Frenzy, 80% Of Buyers In The Past Two Years Don’t Regret Their Purchases
Despite the Housing Market Frenzy, 80% of Buyers in the Past Two Years Don't Regret Their Purchases
by Brenda Richardson, Forbes, 1/19/2023

Over 80% of home buyers don’t regret purchasing their homes in the last two years, despite a tough market and making significant compromises, according to a new survey by LendingTree, an online lending marketplace.

“The high satisfaction rate amid the hot market makes sense,” says LendingTree senior economist Jacob Channel. “Given the market climate, prospective homeowners were willing to do what it took to buy a home. And with low-interest rates in 2020 and 2021, buyers could make financial compromises to guarantee their purchase.”

What your salary needs to be to afford a $1 million home
What Your Salary Needs to Be to Afford a $1 Million Home
by Mia Taylor, Fortune, 1/19/2023

The number of homes in the United States valued at $1 million or more has steadily increased in recent years. A February 2022 report from Redfin showed that a record 8.2% of U.S. homes (or 6 million homes) were valued at $1 million or more. That figure was nearly double the number of homes with such a steep price tag prior to the pandemic.

While the total number of $1 million homes has decreased somewhat since then, dropping to 6.5% as of December, according to a Redfin representative, it’s still far more than the 4.8% inventory share such pricey homes represented prior to the pandemic.
