Just got out of a divorce? Here are the best and worst cities to get back on your feet.

Right off the bat, cross off New York City. A LendingTree study on post-divorce economics and relationship prospects across the U.S. gave New York the lowest score of all of the nation’s 50 largest metros, according to the New York Times.

LendingTree gave each city three scores based on data about divorced people. One is economic and includes median income, homeownership rates, and the cost to rent.

The other two were relationship based. One looked at the local dating pool and gender balance of the city. The “remarriage risk” category factored in the percentage of divorced people in the city and the number who had been married at least three times. More of either lowered the city’s score.

Minneapolis topped the list with excellent economic prospects and low remarriage risks. Milwaukee and Detroit followed behind. The top 10 included just two cities on the East Coast — Providence, Rhode Island and Hartford, Connecticut. Las Vegas was the city furthest west in the top 10. Denver, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, and Kansas City all made the top 10.

New York scored poorly across the board. A low economic score isn’t surprising given the cost of renting and owning in the city, although New Yorkers might disagree about the health of the city’s dating pool.

Divorcee-unfriendly economies also held down Riverside, California; Virginia Beach; and Sacramento. Shallow dating pools and remarriage risks were a factor in low scores in Memphis, Raleigh, Charlotte, Richmond, and Dallas. [NYT] — Dennis Lynch

Las mejores canastas en una polémica competencia de clavadas de la NBA +Vídeos

«Robo», abucheos y decepción, así transcurrió el Concurso de Clavadas de la noche previa al Juego de Estrellas de la NBA, en donde Aaron Gordon volvió a quedarse con las ganas de alzar el título, ahora ante Derrick Jones Jr. en una competencia que tuvo doble muerte súbita y puntaje final de 198-197 tras cuatro ejecuciones.

Redacción MiamiDiario

La estrella del Orlando Magic logró puntaje perfecto (50) en todas sus clavadas menos en la última, la que le dio el trofeo al joven del Miami Heat, quien justo este sábado celebró su cumpleaños 23 y hasta pastel le llevaron a la arena.

La polémica fue en el último mate de Gordon, quien pidió la ayuda del gigantesco Tacko Fall, senegalés de 2.26 metros que juega para Boston y a quien saltó completamente para atascar el balón. Los jugadores en la duela y la fría afición de Chicago (que en esa clavada fue uno de los pocos momentos en los que se animó) no dieron crédito al ver los 47 puntos totales de los cinco jueces, entre ellos Dwyane Wade y Scottie Pippen.

Tan convencidos estaban todos que el jugador del Magic sería el ganador de las clavadas que hasta Wikipedia así lo tuvo por algunos minutos en su lista histórica del concurso.

Aaron Gordon se ha robado el show en sus tres participaciones en el Slam Dunk Contest, pero en 2016, 2017 y 2020 se ha ido con las manos vacías, aunque si de consuelo le sirve mucha gente cataloga lo de esta noche (y ediciones anteriores) como un «robo» al «Campeón Moral».

Cannabis legalization drives demand for warehousing and retail: study

Green makes green, apparently.

Investors can’t get enough warehouse, retail, and land in states that have legalized recreational cannabis use, according to a National Association of Realtors study first reported by Yahoo Finance. NAR surveyed 600 commercial brokers across the country last fall for the study.

Generally, the study found that demand was higher for those property types in states that legalized before 2016 than states that legalized after 2016 and demand was higher in both those categories than in states where cannabis use is illegal.

Investors have poured money into real estate in states with legal recreational use. Some investment firms are opening offices and making moves in states where legalization seems on the horizon.

Warehousing is especially hot. It’s used both for storage and growing cannabis. Compared to 2017, last year demand increased for warehouse space in 42 percent of markets where recreational cannabis has been legal for more than three years — Colorado, Oregon, Washington, and Alaska.

Demand increased 34 percent in states that legalized cannabis post-2016. Demand in states without recreational legalization increased by 18 percent. Disparities in demand for land and retail storefronts between those states was less dramatic.

Katie Barthmaier, CEO of cannabis-focused real estate investment trust Green Acreage, said that higher values correlate with higher barriers for entry.

“It is very important to understand the supply and demand, and the regulatory dynamic, in each state. Focusing on states with higher barriers to entry makes a license more valuable and makes that real estate more valuable,” she said. [Yahoo Finance] — Dennis Lynch

Mortgage rates hit a three-year low earlier this week, so is it time to refinance? That’s a tough question for one in four homeowners who don’t even know what their current rate is.

Around 27 percent of homeowners who responded to a Bankrate study said they don’t know what the interest rate is on their home, according to Fox Business. A third of homeowners between age 29 and 39 didn’t know their rate and 23 percent of people aged 56 to 74 don’t know their rate, the survey found.

The 30-year fixed-average fell to 3.45 percent this week, nearly a full percentage point below this time last year, and the lowest rate since the fall of 2016.

The lack of knowledge of some homeowners could lead to serious financial consequences for them. Around 11 million people could refinance their mortgages at current rates and save an average of $268 per month. Homeowners with adjustable-rate mortgages could find themselves unprepared for hikes.

Mortgage rates rose through 2018 as the Federal Reserve raised their benchmark interest rate, which heavily informs mortgage rates. That worried builders, who figured higher rates would discourage buyers, particularly those who live in areas with historically high home prices like Los Angeles.
The Fed steadied and then began dropping its interest rate last summer, bringing down mortgage rates with it. The benchmark rate has been 1.55 since November.
Buyer sentiment has been strong this winter, prompting more open houses than usual across the country. Low rates are expected to drive strong activity in the typically slow first quarter. [Fox Business] – Dennis Lynch
