Rob Black’s Winners and Losers: Apartments getting smaller, cost more


On today’s segment of Rob Black’s Winners and Losers, our financial expert Rob Black and KRON4’s James Fletcher talks about Californian’s hiring private fire crews to save homes, apartments are getting smaller and costing more, and how big is ‘Fortnite.’

With two years of unprecedented fires taking out more than 20,000 homes, Californians are hiring private fire crews to save their homes. These crews could help push flames back as they approach properties and spray homes with retardant.

Apartments in California continue to get small but the rents continue to be high. New apartments that have been built in 2018 are on average 941-square-feet. That is 5-percent smaller than they were a decade ago. California has the smallest apartments overall.

Fortnite now has 200-million players, equaling two-thirds of the United States population. It now is in the same realm as the most popular games like “Tetris” and “Minecraft.” The game is free and available on almost any device that will play games.
