We're under orders to stay home as much as possible, because of the pandemic. But what happens when your landlord evicts you from the house you call yours -- for missing the rent?
With unemployment spiking, its' happening more frequently than you may realize - and it could be about to get much, much worse. We'll talk with some local experts about the impact, and the options.
And, on The Sound of Ideas, a conversation with a Northeast Ohio native, and real estate writer for the Wall Street Journal. Ryan Dezember once imbedded himself in a story by actually buying a home - which then lost most of its value in the housing crisis. He'll detail how some people are still renting, because they can't - or are afraid - to plunge back into homeownership. And about how buying's become harder - as cash-laden speculators are gobbling up some of Cleveland's best properties.
