LANDSCAPING + REAL ESTATE =
A symbiotic relationship
 
An underappreciated aspect of property selling, leasing, and buying is evaluating the quality and maintenance requirements of landscaping. Much focus is placed on electricity, heating and cooling, etc., but don’t underestimate the value that quality landscaping can bring to a property.
 
Just think about it, if you saw two clones of the exact same property, but one had a gorgeous, well-manicured yard, and the other had a neglected, derelict yard, which one would you choose? While this may seem like common sense, people quickly forget what a standout yard can do for the bottom line. Here are a few things to think about in relation to landscaping and real estate.
 
1. A well-landscaped yard/garden raises the property value.
Curb appeal, baby. When people are touring a property, it needs to look good.
 
Furthermore, quality landscaping does more than just up the appearance of a property. It can actually improve the energy efficiency too. Well-planned trees and shrubs will provide shade and cooling air to a building.
 
Patios, outdoor fire-pits, fountains, and ponds can all be difference-makers. In most cases, the front yard will be the first impression when selling a property. Make it a good one.
 
When in doubt, stay simple. Complicated, busy landscaping with “hard to care-for” plants and bushes may be a deterrent. 
 
2. Staging.
But what do you do if your listed property does not come with a killer yard? Similar to how you would stage the interior of your property, you can do the same with the outside too.
 
Take the time to mow the lawn, remove any clutter, blow off the driveways and walkways, and diligently weed.
 
If you have a deck or patio, stage it with patio furniture. An outdoor couch, barbecue, table and chairs, and a sunshade will do wonders. The property buyer will be more likely to purchase if they see the best version of the house.
 
3. Landscaping addendum:
Don’t forget about the addendum's. Addendum's can be an essential part of an agreement, and while they can be added at any time, it is always best to do that at the time of lease or sale. When leasing, it is essential to clarify who is responsible for lawn care and maintenance or repairs of plants, trees, and other landscaping features.
 
When in doubt, contact a professional. Your landscape professionals have worked on thousands of yards and can provide your client with expert advice on how to prepare their yard for lease or sale.

REVERSE & IMPROVEMENT EXCHANGES

REVERSE EXCHANGES
With the very limited inventory of available properties…we are fielding a lot of calls about closing on the new property first, selling the old property later – a reverse exchange. The 1031 regulations allow a reverse exchange, but they do not allow our client to actually own both the old and the new property at the same time. One of the properties will have to be “parked” with an exchange company. 

What do we mean by “parking?” The exchange company will be the temporary owner. For this reason, a reverse exchange is far more complicated. And…the exchange company can only own the property for 180 days during which time the client has to close the sale of their old property. 

There is no rule dictating which property will be parked. Practical matters (i.e., cash for the down payment, lender requirements, environmental issues, closing costs, etc.) must be analyzed to determine which property is best held by the exchange company. Parking fees are higher than normal exchange fees and the client may also incur additional transactional expenses, lender fees, CPA expense, etc.

IMPROVEMENT EXCHANGES
Again, with the very limited inventory of available properties…investors are considering less than pristine properties or are thinking about building their replacement property – an improvement exchange. This part may sound familiar…the 1031 regulations allow improvement exchanges, but they do not allow our client to actually own the property while the work is taking place. The new property will have to be parked with an exchange company. A full-blown improvement exchange will come with expenses very similar to reverse exchanges.
 
The biggest challenge with the improvement exchange is the 180-day exchange period. While improvements do not have to be completed within the exchange period…work that takes place after the property is transferred to our client will not count toward the exchange. Without a great deal of advanced planning and lining up contractors and vendors, an improvement exchange might not be feasible.

We recommend that brokers get their client on the phone with the exchange company and advisors when the idea first arises. The sooner the client understands the parameters of these complex exchanges the better they are able to plan.
Umpqua Bank Home Lending keeps moving forward during this pandemic.

Commutes have given way to brisk morning walks. Corner offices have turned into kitchen tables. Even office meetings have taken on a new meaning, but our passion hasn’t missed a beat.

We have all worked hard to meet the challenge of this year. Technology has empowered us all to combine the service of an office with the safety of our homes while still keeping with our signature personal touch. Automatic income validation and taking pictures of asset statements instead of bringing a package to the office to scan are just two ways technology is making it possible to continue.

Need a quick chat with your loan officer about the best loans and rates available? We are never more than a video chat away. Worried about closing on time? We have expanded our teams to ensure quick and clear communication despite the unprecedented growth of new home ownership. We are happy to facilitate any online meetings with your customers – instead of meeting at a coffee shop, we can virtually cheer to mutual success.

purchase—refinance—construction—renovation—a partner for the life of your home loan!!

The importance of having a 100% Portfolio Lender a part of your Team
By: Samantha Ross, WaFd Bank
 
Having a 100% portfolio lender in your pocket as part of your team is a great way to increase your sales. 
 
According to Tina DeCamp, Retail Banking Division Manager for WaFd Bank “A portfolio lender does not sell the mortgages it approves for customers but keeps the borrowers note for the life of the loan. We are here for our clients from the first payment to the last, even when the loan is for 15 or even 30 years.”
 
Because 100% portfolio lenders don’t sell their loans, they’re able to provide borrowers with more flexibility and personal service – plus they’ll always know who to call if questions arise about your loan! Why is this important to you as a REALTOR®? As an expert in your field we know that most of your clients look to you for advice and recommendations for lenders.
 
WaFd Bank has helped communities thrive for more than 100 years. We are big enough to matter, yet small enough to care. We are here to bring experience, clarity and simplicity to banking.
 
One unique program that can help you and your client say goodbye to contingent offer is our Cross-Collateral loan:
 
If your clients are shopping for a new home, but haven’t yet sold their existing home, making a competitive offer can be a real headache. Not anymore. With WaFd Bank’s Cross-Collateral Loan your clients can enjoy more negotiating and purchasing power without the expense of a typical bridge loan or the hassle of a contingent offer.
 
Here’s how your clients can benefit:
• Buy or build their dream home, before the current home is sold.
• No need to make their offer on the new home contingent on selling the old home!
• Purchase your new home with up to zero down financing (including closing costs) depending on the equity position* in the current home.
• Lock in the mortgage rate today and enjoy a rate reduction after the sale of the current home, having paid down the loan.

*Maximum 75% combined loan to value. For loan amounts greater than $1,000,000, the maximum loan-to-value is 70%. For example, when the current home is valued at $350,000 and the new home is priced at $400,000, the combined value totals $750,000. Cross collateral loan financing would therefore be limited to $562,500, or 75% of the combined value. Restrictions apply.

Forbes names U.S. Bank one of the 2020
Best Employers for Women

The annual list is based on independent surveys
Forbes magazine has named U.S. Bank to its 2020 Best Employers for Women list, which is compiled based on independent nationwide surveys covering factors including workplace culture, pay equity and more. 
U.S. Bank has received multiple employment-related awards in the past year, including climbing to No. 40 on the prestigious DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity. In addition, American Banker recognized the company with a team award in its 2019 Most Powerful Women in Banking, with executives Kate Quinn, Gunjan Kedia and since-retired Leslie Godridge also receiving individual honors.
In an article accompanying the new Forbes list, staff writer Ruth Umoh wrote, “Companies have made considerable progress in their quest for gender parity over the years, enacting strong hiring and retention practices that directly benefit female employees and offering family-friendly policies that place women at the center of these efforts.”
Adding, “Despite this forward momentum, advancing gender equity isn’t hardwired into every company. In fact, some businesses have far surpassed their competitors in creating an inclusive workplace for women.”
U.S. Bank supports women – who make up 58% of its workforce – through a variety of initiatives focused on professional development, community involvement and work-life balance. 
For example, the company in recent years has: launched formal initiatives to increase the share of women in senior manager and executive ranks; established partnerships with nonprofit organizations such as Girls With Impact that support young women; and expanded its parental leave to 13 weeks of paid leave for birth mothers and four weeks of paid leave for non-birth parents, including those who adopt.

A message from the Professional Development Committee

September is REALTOR® Safety Month and at this month’s virtual general membership meeting on September 9th we will welcome Sheena Williams, Lead Instructor/Owner of Krav Maga! 
Krav Maga is a Martial Arts School in Salem that specializes in self-defense training. This will be a fun virtual presentation on safety measures and tactics for personal protection. Personal protection in our industry is always a good refresher, just take these stats for example from the NAR 2020 REALTOR® Member Safety Report:

  • 23% of REALTORS® experienced a situation that made them fear for their personal safety or safety of their personal information.
  • 31% of REALTORS® felt unsafe during an open house.
  • 5% of REALTORS® said they had been a victim of a crime while working as a real estate professional.
  • 38% of REALTORS® have participated in a self-defense class
  • 49% of members choose to carry self-defense weapons.
  • 46% of men and 50% of women carry a self-defense weapon or tool.
  • 58% of members use a smartphone safety app to track whereabouts and alert colleagues in case of an emergency.

To view the full report with additional figures and info click here:

In January MVAR provided an introduction class on septic systems, this was a one hour course and the feedback was great. Since this is a recurring theme with rural residential sales, we will be hosting two hours of virtual septic training again on September 23rd (9-11 am) presented by the owner of King’s Pumping Service, Mitchell Padilla. This will be split into two courses, the first hour (9:00 am - 10:00 am) will be Septic 101 and the second hour advanced Septic (10:00 am - 11:00 am). If you joined for the previous class or already have a base knowledge on septic systems, feel free to sign up for the one credit hour on advanced septic only from 10:00 am -11:00 am.

Also in September, R-A-D-O-N! Don’t really understand it? Sign up to get schooled via virtual instruction on the 24th at noon with Larry Stone. Larry is the owner of A Best Environmental which specializes in radon testing and mitigation along with mold and asbestos.

As always, please feel welcome to share your feedback on courses with the MVAR office or with me directly. We also welcome ideas that you have for future continuing education opportunities. The Professional Development Committee will be starting on the 2021 calendar at our September meeting.

August 2020 Commercial Market Insights
As a result of the coronavirus pandemic and measures to contain it, the global economic landscape has been dramatically altered. The pandemic has hammered the economy and disrupted the sense of normalcy in all aspects of work and how people live. It has been the most disheveling event to the economy in decades, interrupting supply chains and causing large shifts in consumer demand and retail channels, among others.
While COVID-19 has wreaked havoc on the hotel, office, and retail property assets, it brought out the durability of the industrial property market and accelerated e-commerce and warehousing employment. The increases in warehousing and storage employment reflect a rebound in demand for warehouse space as retailers re-evaluate supply chains originating from the impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
Coronavirus Guidance: Commercial Real Estate

COVID-19 and its long reaching effects continue to change the way we conduct our everyday business, and commercial real estate practitioners continue to adapt to these changes on a daily basis. Below are a few resources to help guide REALTORS® specializing in commercial as they navigate the changing landscape in the industry.
View a recording of the "Next Up: PropTech – The Future is Now” webinar from August, 2020. This update features NAR’s VP of Engagement Charlie Dawson discussing the latest commercial real estate technology with NAR’s Directors of Emerging Technology Dan Weisman and Dave Conroy. They discuss how tech tools can help you show, sell, manage and upkeep your property from home or wherever your business takes you.
