As most Californians know, real estate throughout California, and especially in San Jose and other parts of the Bay Area, is a hot commodity. Re-sale values of houses usually come in far above the purchase price, and the high demand for rentals mean that landlords can command top dollar.
Many people in California are aware of the fact that Matt Lauer was fired from the Today Show for past inappropriate behavior. The events that led to Lauer losing his job, also led to his wife filing for divorce. The couple has reportedly finalized that divorce now after approximately two years. Lauer reportedly agreed to pay his ex-wife $20 million. It is unclear the rest of the terms of the divorce, but the two were seen together at one of their children's events.
