Real Estate – What Tends to make A Property Desirable?

Should you were to ask a group of folks hunting for any new dwelling what tends to make a particular city, town or neighborhood desirable real estate, you’d likely get similar answers from each of the respondents. What do these in-demand places have in popular? Take into account the following:

Downtown Living

The closer a person lives towards the center of town, the greater the cost. An individual who wants to become inside walking distance of where the action is will pay a premium cost for the privilege.

Close to Water

If you wish to reside near a body of water, you’ll need to dig deeper into your wallet. Ocean- or lakefront properties are generally more expensive than these situated further inland. Some individuals consider of this purchase as an investment and count on the worth on the property increasing immediately.

House owners may decide to use their house near the water as a holiday get-away place only. The property may be rented out when the owners will not be using it as a solution to defray the cost of owning and preserving the home.

Golf Course Nearby

When hunting for a new household in the event you see a sign indicating that a golf course is nearby, you realize you will be taking a look at a home in a incredibly desirable neighborhood. There is a thing about being close to a golf course that instantly suggests luxurious living.

Older Property

Older houses that make it onto the list of most desirable real estate had been most likely constructed at the very least a century ago. An individual enthusiastic about among these residences just isn’t only buying the constructing and the land it sits on; they’re also purchasing the sense of history that comes with all the house.

To them, older homes have far more character than their contemporary counterparts. The craftsmanship demonstrated by builders in days gone by is just not a thing that can very easily be duplicated today.

Huge Dwelling

When asked to describe their dream dwelling, men and women tend to speak about a spacious residence with significant, airy rooms featuring high ceilings. We want to keep away from the feeling of becoming cramped or obtaining our furniture jammed into a too-small space.

Close to Amenities

Individuals wish to live close for the conveniences of modern day life. The conveniences that are vital to us vary, based on what stage of life we’re in. Individuals with young families desire to reside close to schools. Based on what activities their youngsters are involved in, they might choose to reside close to a swimming pool, skating rink, soccer field, or a dance studio.

No one desires to drive for a extended distance to get to a buying center, day care center, church or synagogue, medical professional, dentist, dance studio mckinney or veterinarian. These individuals who perform out consistently will choose to live close to a fitness center.

The most desirable real estate locations have these elements in frequent. Every single person who photographs his or her dream home will give much more weight to specific things on this want list. Which ones would be in the prime of yours?

Real-Estate Matters: Seller should have disclosed failing septic system

Q: Would the title company find out if a septic system was put into my home illegally before closing? The owner lied at closing about the original system. He never got a permit or engineering done for it.

Neither the real-estate agent nor my attorney told me the house failed the water inspection, and during the final walk-through I didn’t know to look for a new septic system. Should the title company have caught these things?

A: The title company is responsible for searching the “chain of title” of a particular property to make sure the history of who owned the property through the decades is known.

The title company is there to make sure that, when a buyer closes on the property, the buyer has an assurance that the buyer is the rightful owner.

The other part of what the title company does is disclose all matters that affect the title to the property, such as liens, easements and other restrictions that are on the title to the property.

Septic systems are not matters that affect the title and would not come within the scope of what title companies cover.

The person who should have told you about the septic system was the seller, and if not the seller, then the professional home inspector you hired (or should have hired) to scrutinize the property before you finalized your offer.

Furthermore, in quite a few areas, septic systems are necessary and their existence is common knowledge. If you didn’t know that septic systems were common where you were buying, your home inspector should have known.

At the very least, the question should have been raised ahead of time.

In areas where septic systems are prevalent, many real-estate contracts have a provision that addresses their existence and conditions.

The agent and the lawyer should have made clear that the property failed its water test, but we think you should have been driving that bus.

Furthermore, there are different kinds of water tests. You might have a water test for lead in the water, or you might have well water in the home and the test was for the well water.

And finally, you’d have a test for the septic system, but that usually is not referred to as a water test. You should have asked for the results and made sure you understood the implications. If you mean that the septic system failed the test and the seller knew, or should have known, that the property was on a failing septic system, you may be able to argue that this was a material defect that should have been disclosed to you before the closing.

You should discuss the issue with a litigation attorney who has had experience with your state’s seller-disclosure rules and see what options you have.

Aspen real estate market's first half best since 2007

The Aspen-area real estate market surged to its best first half this year since prerecession days.

All real estate transactions in Pitkin County totaled $929.24 million from January through June, according to statistics through April that were compiled by Land Title Guarantee Co. and from the Pitkin County Clerk and Recorder’s Office for May and June.

The dollar volume includes sales of everything from employee housing to commercial buildings in Aspen’s downtown core.

That tops the first-half performance every year back to 2007, when sales from January through June hit $1.43 billion, according to records kept by Land Title Guarantee Co.

Last year, the Pitkin County real estate market hit $662.80 million during the first half. This year is up 40 percent from that time.

Andrew Ernemann, a real estate agent with Aspen-Snowmass Sotheby’s International Realty, said there is no doubt total dollar volume this year will exceed 2014’s. However, dollar volume is still well behind levels set in the mid-2000s.

“We are seeing prices back at that level — not everywhere,” he said.

The high end of the luxury residential market — homes greater than $10 million — is faring particularly well right now, Ernemann said.

Even back in 2009, when overall activity was low, the luxury market was healthy, he said. The segment retreated a bit in 2013 but bounced back in 2014 and is on track for a stronger year this year.

A report prepared by Ernemann shows there have been eight sales in the Aspen area of homes more expensive than $10 million, and another five sales are pending through June. Last year, there were 17 sales of homes at $10 million or greater.

There are 28 homes listed at prices exceeding $15 million. There are 14 active listings between $12.5 million and $15 million and eight between $10 million and $12.5 million, according to Ernemann’s report.

In addition to exceeding last year’s dollar volume, Ernemann said he believes the number of transactions this year to last will be up, though not by a huge amount.

Carrie Wells, a real estate broker with Coldwell Banker Mason Morse, said price per square foot is exceeding prerecession levels for prime properties. That was a trend that started last year, she said.

Markets segments such as the downtown core, West End and Red Mountain are leading the current surge, as they often did in the past, said Wells, who is a previews properties specialist with Coldwell Banker, meaning she specializes in more expensive homes.

“We’re seeing a continuation of how important location is and the lifestyle of our buyers,” Wells said. Many buyers want to be close to the core. That’s resulted in a lack of inventory in those areas. Lower inventory means higher prices.

Aspen-area single-family homes prices are up 18 percent from last year, she said. The average single-family home price for all areas in and around Aspen is $6.3 million, according to Wells.

The 2015 market also has been strong for speculative builders.

“The developers are back in full form, buying and selling,” Wells said. And with good reason, she noted. “New construction is always attractive.”

The strong sales activity has got advantages and disadvantages. Sellers are getting closer to their asking prices. Single-family homes in Aspen are selling for about 91 percent of listing price, Ernemann said, and Aspen condos are going for about 95 percent of listing price.

On the other hand, the sales surge has gobbled up the inventory. Listings are down by about 50 percent in the Aspen area over the past five years, Ernemann said.

In Aspen, the listing inventory is down 9.4 percent from last year at this time in single-family homes and condominiums, while it’s about the same in Snowmass Village, according to Ernemann’s report.

He said he sees two factors contributing to a “glass ceiling” in the Aspen-area estate market. The drop in oil and gas prices could affect the activity in the market from buyers from Texas and other oil-rich places, he said.

Also, the “widespread buzz” about the strength of the market could drive up sellers’ listing prices, even if not warranted.

Ernemann, like most real estate agents who work extensively with statistics for reports, looks at market segments rather than total dollar volume of all sales. His research shows there are some areas that are performing “great” in terms of transactions and prices. Other areas are experiencing strong performance but not great, he said.

However, sellers are getting bullish, regardless of where their property is located.

“They’re hearing that the market is doing well and they don’t want to leave money on the table,” Ernemann said.

In fact, it’s been an “uneven recovery,” he said. Property in and close to the core is doing well. Condos have soared 20 percent in prices since 2012, he said, while single-family homes in the neighborhoods closest to the core are up 20 to 25 percent over that period.

Wells said she expects the first half trends to continue during the second half. About 60 percent of business is during the summer months, she said, and August is particularly robust. Nothing short of a “global catastrophe” could derail the strong performance this year, she said.

The Promising Future of Real Estate Crowdfunding

2015-06-24-1435182623-9622836-SohinShah.pngAuthor Sohin Shah successfully crowdfunded Valuation App from 57 backers in 2012 and went on to start iFunding, which is now one of the leading real estate crowdfunding platforms in the world. 

The American public’s trust in big banks is nearing all-time lows. An increasing number of investors are tired of receiving zero to negligible net returns from their local banks. As a result, a higher percentage of investors are seeking new avenues for efficient and transparent investing.

Over the past three years, the real estate industry has been at the forefront of creating one of those new avenues – crowdfunding platforms. To give you a sense of its growth, the total combined investment funds for real estate crowdfunding platforms increased from $2.7 billion in 2012 to $5.1 billion in 2013. 2014 was on pace to exceed well over $10 billion.

It’s a lucrative choice. The combined value of real estate here in the U.S. is larger than the combined bond and stock markets. Back in July 2012, the U.S. bond market was valued close to $37 trillion while the U.S. stock market was closer to $21 trillion. Yet, real estate is the largest and most valuable asset class of them all. Per a December 2014 report from the Federal Reserve, real estate continues to be the largest combined asset class worth an estimated $40 trillion. Residential real estate accounts for almost 60 percent while the commercial real estate sector represents closer to 40 percent of this total number.

The following offers insight into the state of the real estate market today and how crowdfunding platforms are proving it to be a viable investment in 2015 and beyond.

The JOBS Act and Crowdfunding

In 2012, Congress passed the JOBS Act, whose original intent was to encourage and provide efficient funding options for small businesses partly by easing securities regulations. Following this event, real estate crowdfunding received mainstream attention in 2013 when many of the current industry-leading platforms such as iFunding (my company), Fundrise, Realty Mogul and Patch of Land went live with their websites. These help to eliminate the “middleman” (aka banks and hard money lenders), and share higher profits and returns directly with investors.

What makes crowdfunding so appealing is that investors have the opportunity to invest in bigger, institutional quality properties with relatively smaller amounts of capital. Another added benefit is that they don’t need to deal directly with any potential problems associated with the tenants or the buildings, thus making it a form of passive investment.

For Investors, the Value Is Clear

Crowdfunding platforms allow investors to analyze and clearly understand the opportunities for investments at the touch of their keyboard or mobile device just like with the stock market. It has introduced technology and transparency to real estate, an industry that was long overdue for disruption. As such, the more efficient use of technology is lowering the cost of capital and overhead operators, which, in turn, allows the crowdfunding platforms to share a higher percentage of their profits with their investors.

Other value-added opportunities include:

  • Pre-vetted investment opportunities that allow individuals with no prior real estate-investing experience to participate in deals.
  • Transparent reporting that allows users to stay updated on all of their investments.
  • Diversification options that offer risk mitigation.
  • Analytics to guide informed investment decisions.
  • Digital payments to eliminate the need to send paper checks or go to the bank to transfer funds.

Derivative Businesses Represent a Huge Opportunity for EntrepreneursThe growth of real estate crowdfunding has been a gold rush for entrepreneurs. Many have started businesses that seek to build a surrounding ecosystem, supporting real estate crowdfunding platforms in their efforts of staying compliant and bringing efficiency to the overall business. In particular, the following have emerged at the forefront as extremely important platforms that allow sites like that of my company, iFunding, to scale.

  • FundAmerica: Since going live with their API in November 2014, FundAmerica has emerged as a leader in providing “FinTech” services such as online escrows, state securities dealer clearance, background checks and payment processing.
  • Accredify: This startup provides tax transcripts via the IRS 4506-T form to determine if investors qualify as “Accredited” Investors. They make asset verification easy using simple online bank and 4506-T forms to allow them to approve an individual’s income from the IRS directly.
  • LendIt: As the leading organizer of conferences for the global online lending community, LendIt introduces global P2P (“Peer to Peer”) market leaders. Three of LendIt’s most popular and informative regional conferences are located in the USA, Europe, and China each year.

The Future

Securities regulations may get more streamlined and efficient in 2015 in both individual states by way of automated federal regulations that are easier to understand for both investors and business owners seeking to raise new capital. If so, more successful and profitable crowdfunding platforms may lead to more jobs, higher profits for investors and increased tax revenues for the states and federal government.

As time evolves, we may see synergic deals where multiple crowdfunding platforms may be working on the same deal, providing both debt and equity while many of the local banks sit on the sidelines wondering why they are not as speedy, efficient, and affordable as real estate crowdfunding platforms.

As a result, I believe banks may soon be losing customers who are tired of earning zero to negative net returns with bank savings accounts — and these real estate investment opportunities and solutions will be more accessible and profitable than ever.

Real estate agent charged with taking items from unoccupied home

A 44-year-old Wilton Manors real estate agent has been charged with burglary and grand theft in connection with items stolen from the backyard of an house listed for sale, police said.

Joseph Schutz, an agent with Re/Max, is accused with taking the property from an unoccupied Wilton Manors home on June 14.

Police said a neighbor noticed a vehicle parked at the residence and called the owner to confirm that no one was authorized to be there. When police responded, the vehicle was gone, as was unspecified property from the back yard.

“Schutz was interviewed by investigators and property from this burglary was recovered at his residence,” police said in a press release. “Schutz admitted to taking the items from the victim’s backyard after finding the residence listed for sale.”

He was arrested Wednesday.

In first appearance court Thursday afternoon, Broward Judge John “Jay” Hurley questioned Schutz about his time in the community and his licensing as a real estate agent.

Hurley said he would release Schutz without bond “since it involved Mr. Schutz and he seems like a pretty nice guy.”
