Scammers Phish for Mortgage Closing Costs - The Federal Trade Commission and the NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS® are warning home buyers about an email and money wiring scam. Hackers have been breaking into some consumers’ and real estate professionals’ email accounts to get information about upcoming real estate transactions. After figuring out the closing dates, the hacker sends an email to the buyer, posing as the real estate professional or title company. The bogus email says there has been a last minute change to the wiring instructions, and tells the buyer to wire closing costs to a different account. But it’s the scammer’s account. If the buyer takes the bait, their bank account could be cleared out in a matter of minutes.

South Bay School District House Hunting for Teachers - District leaders say rental prices in Mountain View are out of reach for its teachers who make an average of $69,000 dollars a year. A one-bedroom apartment in Mountain View rents for $2,507 per month on average, according to Rent Jungle.

Could More Student Housing Relax All Bay Area Rents? - Sky-high prices on the Peninsula have university officials looking to build four new on-campus housing complexes with 2,400 beds, a net gain of 2,000 beds after knocking down some existing two-story units. That is enough to house about half the graduate students currently living off campus.

Palo Alto residents who earn up to $250,000 a year to qualify for SUBSIDIZED housing in new affordable housing plan as teachers, cops and janitors are forced out of the city - People earning $250,000-a-year should qualify for subsidized housing in Palo Alto, according to a new proposal.
City officials have outlined an eight-year affordable housing plan - with 587 units for reserved for the area's uniquely wealthy middle class as real estate prices balloon. The well-heeled California neighborhood, where a plot of land recently sold for $2.7 million, is home to some of America’s richest entrepreneurs who work a few miles away in Silicon Valley.
