COVID Relief Update
Despite the end of federal eviction moratoria last month, California’s own statewide moratorium continues until next week, Oct. 1, 2021 (read more about this and what you need to know here). This allows time for the various state and local rental relief programs to disburse rental assistance funds. To apply for rental relief funding, go to the state website for CA COVID-19 Rent Relief.

SB 8, SB 9 and SB 10 - Signed by Governor
Last week, Governor Newsom signed three important housing bills: SB 8 (Skinner), SB 9 (Atkins) and SB 10 (Weiner) that will make a meaningful impact on the state’s housing crisis. This is an important step toward solving our state’s housing supply crisis. SB 8, SB 9 and SB 10 are prudent, reasonable actions in the path forward to helping the state reach its housing goals and create greater homeownership opportunities for working Californians. For more on this please see our release here and background here.

Market Update
Most of the data that came in over the past week has been encouraging. The public health numbers continue to improve. Recent economic releases show that the macro environment continues to recover despite the uptick in COVID cases last month. And the housing market remains relatively stable with sales remaining well above pre-crisis levels and prices setting new all-time high levels. There are signs that the market has and will continue to moderate from 15-year highs reached earlier, but the data skewed more positive over the past week.. For the full write up - go here
