The COVID-19 pandemic has locked many Americans in place. But some are picking up stakes — choosing Florida over almost every other destination.

According to real estate firm FCP and geospatial analytics group Orbital Insight, Tampa is the No. 1 relocation destination for Americans who have moved during COVID.

South Florida — meaning the Miami-Fort Lauderdale-Pompano Beach area — comes in at No. 4, with Orlando at No. 5.

In between are Phoenix (No. 2) and New York City (No. 3).

Using Orbital Insight’s data, FCP analyzed approximately 3.8 million cellphone numbers from major metropolitan areas. It compared the phones’ 2019 locations with their locations from March through June, as well as March through September, to understand migration both during lockdown and the pandemic

Buying a Foreclosed House: Top 5 Pitfalls

Buying a house that is in foreclosure is often touted as a way for both owner-occupants and investors to get a great deal on a property. However, the potential financial rewards are not arrived at without a significant amount of hard work.

Foreclosed properties have some common problems. In addition, there are some standard difficulties you may encounter in purchasing one. While foreclosures can be great investments as fixer-uppers, either to live in or resell, they often come with baggage.

3 Top Growth Stocks to Buy Before the Election

With the presidential election less than two weeks away, investors are anxiously awaiting its outcome and the subsequent effect on the stock market. No one wants a replay of the March market crash, when the Dow Jones Industrial Average plunged by 26% in the span of four trading days due to a near complete shutdown of the economy from the COVID-19 pandemic.  

Luckily, investing in revolutionary stocks that are poised to fly high, no matter who wins the White House, represents an enticing hedging strategy. Without further ado, let’s look at why a 5G company, a coronavirus vaccine developer, and a marijuana grower are all ready to soar, whatever the election outcome.

Napa County home prices top $900,000 | Business

“As motivated buyers continue to take advantage of the lowest interest rates in history, home sales will be elevated in the next couple of months, and the housing market should remain a bright spot in a broader economy that continues to struggle,” said CAR President Jeanne Radsick, a second-generation Realtor from Bakersfield, Calif.

“And with many employers allowing the flexibility of working remotely, homebuyers now also have the option of searching in less expensive areas where homes are more affordable and buyers can get more home for their money.”

With home sales continuing to bounce back in September and sales of higher-priced properties recovering faster than the rest of the market, the statewide median price hit another new high after setting records in June, July and August.

California’s median home price exceeded the $700,000 mark for the second consecutive month, as it reached $712,430 in September, edging up 0.8 percent

Top Five Reasons to Buy a HomePod Mini

Apple last week introduced a new $99 HomePod mini, which is a more affordable alternative to the full-size HomePod that’s been around since 2017. The ‌HomePod mini‌ isn’t shipping out until November, but on paper, it sounds great for those who have been eyeing a ‌HomePod‌ but haven’t wanted to shell out $299.

In our latest YouTube video, we outlined the top five reasons why you might want to buy a ‌HomePod mini‌.

At $99, the ‌HomePod mini‌ is a lot more affordable than the $299 ‌HomePod‌, which was even more expensive ($349) when it first launched.
