Binyamin Appelbaum Career
Appelbaum was part of a team of reporters at The Charlotte Observer that helped shed light on the area’s high rate of housing foreclosures and dubious sales techniques by Beazer Homes USA, one of the country’s largest homebuilders, in 2007. The Observer’s exposé spurred FBI, IRS, SEC, and HUD investigations against Beazer Homes, which has now ceased issuing mortgage loans nationwide and has ceased construction in Charlotte, North Carolina. In 2008, the series earned a Gerald Loeb Award, a George Polk Award, and was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize in public service.
According to a profile of his reporting on the subprime mortgage crisis, Appelbaum foresaw the impending mortgage lending crisis long before the rest of the country did. “While compiling a list of foreclosed homes in Mecklenburg County, North Carolina, I noticed an odd pattern: clusters were concentrated in new developments. Appelbaum questioned if the trend was caused by poor loans.” He worked as a Times Washington correspondent from 2010 to 2019, covering economic problems in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. He as well worked for The Florida Times-Union, The Charlotte Observer, The Boston Globe, and The Washington Post, where his study on subprime finance won a George Polk Award and was selected for a Pulitzer Prize in 2008.
