Who could’ve guessed it?

Disbarred attorney Michael Cohen’s former real estate partner — the same landlord who reportedly omitted rent-stabilized buildings from construction applications a decade ago — is running a business based on fraud, a new lawsuit claims.

Eric Nelson, owner-operator of city landlord Vintage Group, was sued last week by an LLC associated with real estate lawyer Herbert Chaves, who accuses Nelson of running a racketeering operation that siphoned money from his business partners, his tenants and the city for his benefit.

The suit alleges Nelson invoked a combination of illegal deregulation and fraudulent billing to swindle Chaves and his co-plaintiffs out of more than $1 million.

The underhanded deregulation went down at 330 East 63rd Street, a rent-regulated multifamily building in Lenox Hill, which Nelson and Cohen bought in 2015 and in which Chaves

A 3M global distribution center in DeKalb, IL, owned by Modiv.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a seasoned investor or just starting to build your portfolio, real estate investing may help with diversification and cash flow generation. It’s also a solid option to hedge against volatility because the real estate market doesn’t typically correlate with stocks or bonds.

Despite the many potential benefits of real estate investing, it’s notorious for high barriers of entry. Real estate investing used to be reserved for only investors with enough time and resources on their hands to finance, rent out and manage a property. This can be time-consuming and also incredibly risky for inexperienced investors. A simplified, less-costly option may be to go the real estate investment trust (REIT) route.

In Argentina, giant rodents vie with the rich for top real estate

Families of a giant rodent native to South America have been invading a luxury gated community in Argentina, highlighting the country’s controversial environmental and social policies.

Many Nordelta residents have complained about capybara’s ruining manicured lawns, biting pets and causing traffic accidents.

Homebuyers flock to Florida real estate

The Sunshine State seems to be getting a lot more foot traffic these days, with the number of homebuyers moving to Miami tripling year-over-year, a new analysis found.

According to Redfin’s monthly migration report, July saw the net inflow of Redfin users packing their bags and moving to Miami rise to 7,610, up from 2,216 last year.

Milagros Alvarez, a Miami real estate agent at Redfin, said that the pandemic “has brought even more out-of-towners to the area” because so many people can now work wherever they want.

“Homebuyers are moving here from all over the map—Atlanta, Cincinnati, New York, Columbia, Mexico City, Pittsburgh and Philly, to name a few,” said Alvarez. “The beaches, warm weather and low taxes are the major draws. Florida has also been much less shut down than other states during the pandemic, which some house hunters see as a positive.”
