Many believe that Canada is dealing with a housing bubble in 2022. With Canadian housing affordability at an all time low in 2022, some say this Canadian housing bubble is actually a Canadian housing crisis. Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's housing plan to solve Canada's affordable housing shortage is very controversial. Justin Trudeau's new housing policy is to ban foreigners from buying Canadian real estate. That's right, if you are not a native Canadian citizen, you are not allowed to buy a home in Canada. If Canada's ban on foreign home buyers sounds racist to you, you are not alone. In the 65th episode of The Ask James Wise Show, US real estate investor James Wise is sounding off on Canada's new racist housing policy. In addition to Canada's foreign housing ban being racist, Canada's ban on foreign real estate investment restricts the rights of Canadian citizens to sell their property to whomever they want. What's worse, is that this overreach of the Canadian government's restriction of private property ownership rights is inspiring housing policy change in the USA. Recently Texas housing officials in the Dallas area cited this Canadian housing ban as inspiration for potential housing restrictions in Texas. What does the Canadian real estate bubble mean for US real estate investors? What does the ban on foreign home buyers in Canada mean for Canadians who wish to sell their homes? Is the US housing market going to become more like the Canadian housing market? Which US housing markets are following Canada's lead to limit property rights for their citizens?

To say that Cleveland's new lead paint law is off to a slow start would be an understatement. As with most things that the Cleveland government does, the Cleveland lead safe roll out has been filled with bureaucracy and confusion. Currently it's estimated that only a small number of Cleveland rental properties have received their lead based paint certificate under Cleveland's new lead paint ordinance. The reason so few Cleveland homes have gotten the Cleveland lead based paint certification is that the process of obtaining Cleveland's lead paint certification is incredibly confusing. In order for a Cleveland landlord to get their property lead certified by the city of Cleveland, the Cleveland rental property owner needs to go through a cumbersome lead paint inspection process that involves visual lead testing as well as costly lab testing from licensed lead risk assessors. The awareness of the Cleveland lead based paint process is so low that most Realtors and landlords in the city of Cleveland aren't aware that this new lead paint certification process even exists. Without even knowing about the existence of Cleveland's new lead paint law, it's very optimistic for Cleveland lead advocates for safe housing to assume these Realtors and rental property owners in Cleveland will have any idea how to successfully navigate the confusing lead certification process with any amount of regularity. Hence the extremely low lead certification numbers in the Cleveland housing market. In the 57th episode of The Ask James Wise Show, Cleveland landlord and HoltonWise CEO James Wise explains the 10 step process a Cleveland landlord needs to go through to obtain a Cleveland lead based paint certificate for all of their rental properties. If you or someone you know is a Cleveland landlord or a Cleveland area real estate agent selling rental properties in the city of Cleveland, Ohio this lead certification process applies to you.
Dave Chappelle might be getting canceled again. This time it's got nothing to do with the LGBTQ community.

If you paid a lot of money for your home do you believe you have the right to block low income housing from being built in your neighborhood like Dave Chappelle did? Tune in to HoltonWiseTV for the answer to these questions and many more about the low income housing controversy involving Dave Chappelle and the village of Yellow Springs, Ohio.
Leaving California continues to be a trending topic among California home owners who are sick and tired of the endless socialist housing policies of the far left politicians who hold power over the largest real estate market in America. If the recent LA County eviction moratorium extension that makes evicting tenants for non payment of rent illegal in parts of California until 2023 wasn't enough to push the California exodus forward, this new far left housing tax aimed at San Francisco's landlords will likely do the trick. San Francisco housing supervisor Dean Preston recently announced a new housing tax aimed at California's landlords who feel like they have no other choice but to leave their rental properties vacant due to the radical landlord tenant laws and housing policies in California. This includes the LA County law that had made evictions illegal in parts of California for the last two years and will continue to do so in that part of California until 2023. In the 55th episode of The Ask James Wise Show James Wise explains why he believes that the far left landlord tenant laws and radical housing policies of California are why there is an estimated 40,000 vacant rental units in San Francisco. He believes that these San Francisco house and apartments have been voluntarily left vacant by San Francisco landlords to combat the government created housing crisis that they are dealing with. James Wise believes these Californians have been stripped of their property rights and they have no other choice but to deal with the fact that putting tenants who can't be evicted in these vacant rental houses would be more trouble than it's worth. Will California continuing to create new predatory taxes that vilify landlords fix San Francisco's homeless problem? Will the continued vilification of landlords fix California's housing crisis? Will the California economy be able to prosper if California property owners continue to leave the largest economy in America in droves looking for more reasonable policies and housing prices? Is more taxation the solution to the California homeless problem? How high can California taxes go before the California housing bubble bursts? Tune in to HoltonWiseTV for insight on these California housing issues and much more. HoltonWiseTV is California real estate investing made easy.
Radical Los Angeles housing advocates have canceled rent in California. The cancel rent movement in California just won a huge victory in LA County. The Los Angeles county Covid-19 eviction moratorium has now been extended until 2023. This unprecedented eviction moratorium has made it illegal to evict tenants in LA County for non payment of rent, effectively outlawing being a landlord in this part of California for 3 years. In the 54th episode of The Ask James Wise Show, professional landlord and conservative private property rights advocate James Wise, sounds off on the dangerous rise in socialism in California. With communism and socialism starting to feel like the new norm in the state of California, many California property owners and landlords feel like this is just the latest of many socialist policies in California contributing to the California exodus and the rise of the leaving California movement. Will making LA County evictions illegal for 3 years lead to a California housing crash? Will forcing landlords to let their tenants live rent free for 3 years destroy the California economy? Will America's most expensive real estate market implode on itself with radical left wing housing policy? Will the LA County eviction moratorium ever end? Is rent control in LA County here to stay? Is capitalism in California dead? These are all talking points discussed on HoltonWiseTV. Tune in to HoltonWiseTV for all things housing. HoltonWiseTV is investing in real estate made easy.
It seems like fake news is everywhere these days. Unfortunately the Cleveland housing market isn't immune to the phenomenon of supposed journalists becoming fiction writers. In the 53rd episode of The Ask James Wise Show, James Wise reacts to Cleveland Scene Magazine's cover story by Mark Oprea titled Holton-Wise, a Flood of Covert LLCs and Out-of-State Investors Have Radically Changed the Local Housing Market. Is There Anything Cleveland Can Do to Fight Back? In the story, Mark Oprea fills Cleveland Scene Magazine's pages with misleading information about the Cleveland real estate market, Cleveland housing discrimination, Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb, and the role HoltonWise plays in the Cleveland housing market as well as Cleveland's economy in general. In addition to all of these half truths written with what appears to be the intent to slander HoltonWise, Mark Oprea's article is filled with various outright lies about HoltonWise and it's CEO James Wise. James Wise goes through all of the lies and misleading information written about HoltonWise and the Cleveland housing market by Mark Oprea and his Cleveland Scene Magazine colleague Sam Allard. Sam Allard, is perhaps the more outrageous liar of the two Cleveland journalists. Sam Allard has been caught red handed writing at least one slanderous article for Cleveland Scene Magazine accusing Cleveland real estate investment company Holton-Wise of being a predatory lender when HoltonWise is not now a lender. In fact, HoltonWise has never been a lender. HoltonWise is not in the mortgage business at all. How are the journalistic standards of Cleveland Scene Magazine so low that fiction writers such as Mark Oprea and Sam Allard are out there publishing falsehoods about Cleveland news? Perhaps this fictitious story from Cleveland Scene Magazine should not be a surprise as Cleveland Scene Magazine is no stranger to legal issues related to inaccurate reporting by Cleveland Scene Magazine's writers. Just last year, Bobby George's Cleveland restaurant TownHall filed a lawsuit against Cleveland Scene Magazine for inaccurate reporting regarding the race and gender of the subject of a social media post made by a TownHall manager. It's a sad day for Cleveland journalism when two fiction writers are out there claiming to be Cleveland journalists while producing fiction about at least one Cleveland area business.
