CAAR Spring Fling Hits Refresh Button with Attendees Deciding on which session to go to was a tough choice for many of the 100-plus attendees at the CAAR 2012 Spring Fling. The event, held on Thursday at Farmington Country Club, offered a completely new menu of classes with special emphasis on taking technology tools to the next level. The day started off with 50 tech tips for MLS, including keyboard shortcuts and improving startup speed. In the advanced MLS class, participants learned how to: set defaults for faster searches; use extended search features; and add an HTML signature to List-It emails. Attendees also learned the dos and don’ts of working with digital cameras. Local professional photographer and instructor Victoria Dye reviewed everything REALTORS® need to know in photographing their

properties, from what camera setting to use for the best results in shooting in fluorescent vs. incandescent and indoor vs. outdoor environments to composition and how to follow the rule of thirds (grass, house and sky). “In a room, try to place all of the elements so it’s pleasing,” the awardwinning photographer said. “You don’t want to shoot from the back

of the sofa, because you’re going to trip over it when you walk through the space.” William James brought attendees up-to-speed on cloud computing solutions. A national authority on handheld computing and mobile technology, Williams advised participants in selecting the right mobile apps tailored to the agent-client relationship. He explored a wide range of online tools at REALTORS®’ fingertips, such as building a client relationship management system; managing and collaborating on contracts and documents; and creating flexible, customizable Web-based calendars. Williams lead another session in the afternoon devoted solely to smartphones, tablets and other devices to create the ultimate mobile office. The 100-year photographic history of Charlottesville, presented by professional photographer Steve Trumbull during lunch, was wildly popular with attendees. Building your brand and business online was a hot topic in the afternoon. Marijean Jaggers, a reputation management expert and president of Jaggers Communications, shared valuable trends in social media and the benefits of managing an online identity. In particular, she empha-

sized research results that small businesses that blog regularly get 55 percent more Web site visitors. “Drive people back to your home base from email and social media profiles,” Jaggers said. “People are going to develop a trust with what’s behind the brand.” The last program to wrap-up for the day covered the new Residential Standard Agency requirement for license renewals after July 1, 2012.

Purrs & Paws Spring Adoption Event The Fluvanna SPCA is hosting Purrs & Paws, a mega adoption event, Saturday, March 31, 2012, 9am – 7pm at the Meadows Shopping Center beside PETCO, located at 1621 Emmet Street North,Charlottesville, near the intersection of 250 bypass and 29 business. This adoption event is open to the public and admission is free. Families and adult individuals are encouraged to attend. The Fluvanna SPCA along with several other animal rescue groups will be present with dozens of dogs, cats, puppies, and kittens looking for forever homes. The event will also feature pet merchandise and pet service providers, including photography, pet portraits, behavior training, and veterinary services. Obedience demonstrations will take place at 10am and 3pm. The Fluvanna SPCA is an independent 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to rescue homeless pets and place them in good, loving homes. For more than two years, the FSPCA has been a nokill animal shelter that also provides animal pound services to Fluvanna County. Events such as this one are vital to its goal of finding good homes for all healthy, adoptable pets. The ASPCA seeks to assist communities with ending needless euthanasia of adoptable animals simply due to lack of resources and awareness. The ASPCA has provided the FSPCA with a generous grant to make this adoption event possible. For more information about the Purrs & Paws adoption event and on participating animal rescue groups, vendors, and service providers, please visit www.fspca.org.

of Roy Wheeler Realty Co., can be depended upon to provide “a stable base of rental prospects.” As in other markets, Charlottesville area prices are significantly lower than they were a few years ago when the market was very hot, and according to the 2011 4th quarter market report, they were continuing to decline somewhat compared to 2010. However, this may not be the case for long. The report also noted that the number of new listings was down over 20 percent compared with the end of 2010 and pending sales (homes under contract but not closed) were up almost 20 percent during the same time frame. In other words, if you are waiting for the market to bottom out, don’t wait much longer.

f you are ready to diversify your investment portfolio, now may be a good time to consider real estate. There are a number of reasons for this—two big ones being exceptionally low prices and interest rates that are at a 65 year low. In addition, real estate offers a number of clear tax benefits that are hard to beat. These include write-offs for fix-up costs, taxes and insurance, plus, says Robert Ramsey, Broker-Owner of Charlotte Ramsey Real Estate, Inc., best of all is the an-

nual depreciation allowance that helps shelter some of your other income. Taken together, for many people, these are powerful reasons why real estate compares favorably to other types of investments such as the stock market. While these are general incentives to invest in real estate, there also are a number of reasons why Charlottesville area properties are potentially profitable places to put your money. A big one, of course, is the stability associated with the University which, according to Jim McVay,

ful argument for investing now, this is tempered somewhat by the relative lack of invester funds. There are several reasons for this. One is that money is a lot harder to borrow than it once was, which means you have to work harder to get a loan. A few years ago when loans were easier to obtain, explained Tommy Richards, a loan officer with StellarOne Bank, investors took advantage of these much looser standards and often got in over their heads. All was well until real estate prices started coming down instead of going up, and investors who were unable to make their payments also could not sell their properties. The resulting foreclosures caused banks to tighten up credit standards significantly.

Financing and Interest Rates While the combination of low prices and interest rates makes a power-

the stability associated with the University can be depended upon to provide “a stable base of rental prospects.” “Expect to provide about three times the documentation as you would have a few years ago,” said Lee McAllister, a senior loan officer at Fulton Mortgage. Both lenders also agreed that you need excellent credit, good income and the ability to put 20 to 25 percent down. More is better, advises McAllister, who said there is a big interest rate advantage associated with a larger down payment. For those who already have several mortgages on investment properties there is another important consideration. According to McAllister, Fannie Mae’s requirements limit investors to 10 mortgaged properties including their home, considering more than that to be too big of a risk. In addition, investors with more than four financed

properties have to show six months of payment reserves for all of them. While at one time there was other money readily available to accommodate investors with more than 10 properties, today it is harder to come by, commented Ramsey, who owns many rental properties. When he was just starting out, Ramsey said that he had a goal of acquiring at least one new rental property per year. However in the last several years, with the dearth of funds for larger investors, he has been unable to meet that goal, and has run into the same frustration when seeking property on behalf of his larger investor clients.

There is good news, however. Some local sources are now making loans again which they portfolio (keep in-house) eliminating the need to meet Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac requirements. Richard’s bank, StellarOne, which is headquartered in Charlottesville, is one of those. “It is a big advantage to be local,” he said. “We know the area and the neighborhoods and can drive over and look at a property if need be before making a loan.” Because of the increased risk, “loans cost more today,” said Richards, “but usually not so much as to be a deal breaker.”

In some instances Who are Today’s Investors People invest in Charlottesville real estate for a number of reasons. A big one is that they fell in love with the area when they went to school here, explained McAllister. They purchase property here both because they understand the Charlottesville market with its stable base of renters and its potential for long term appreciation, and because they have plans to return eventually when they retire. When they do, they already have a place to live. In other cases, she said, people do the opposite. They move here to retire or just because they love the area,

but rather than sell their previous house they keep it as an investment property. In some instances students purchase a starter home or condo while they are in school with the idea of keeping it for rental when they graduate and move on. McVay described some buyers who did just that. They purchased a townhome while in graduate school, and lived there several years, enjoying the proximity to the University. When they purchased the property it was with the foresight that not only was it a good long term investment, but the realization that they

what is required to be a good landlord before you jump in. Richards said it is not uncommon for investors to be empty nesters with disposable income looking to diversify their portfolios. These are the folks who can get loans for investment properties because over the years they have established the kind of credit scores and acquired the depth of assets needed to qualify. The main question we want to answer when qualifying a borrower, he said, is “can they handle the bumps in the road? A solid set of assets and an excellent credit score are not things you acquire over night,� he explained. When a borrower has these in place, they are more likely to be considered a good risk.

the higher than average foreclosure rate means there are a whole class of people who are unable to purchase a home and are forced to rent. At the same time, the condo market is complicated by tighter Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac rules which make loans for these units a lot harder to obtain than they once were. This means people who may have purchased a condo in the past may be more inclined to rent today.

money owning rental property, but it can be a real headache.� A big part of this headache is learning how to choose good tenants. Ramsey expressed similar sentiments when he said that he advises about 50 percent of the people who express interest in purchasing rental property to give serious thought to putting their money elsewhere. The reason is “not everyone can be a landlord.� It takes someone who is willing to research rental prospects carefully and recognize who is and isn’t a good

risk. Ramsey always runs a credit check and asks for a recommendation from their current landlord. He added that if someone can’t come up with the first month’s rent and tries to negotiate their security deposit, it’s a good sign they won’t be a strong tenant. Of course you can always pay someone else to manage your property and that is a good option for many people. The 6 to 10 percent of your rental income which you can expect to pay for this purpose cuts into your cash flow, but may be well worth it. Also, it’s a good idea to check with your accountant since if you don’t actively manage your property, the IRS may consider you a passive investor, in which case you may also lose some of your write offs.

The Costs of Property Ownership Whether or not you make money on rental properties depends on a number of factors, and inexperienced investors may overlook some of the real costs. For example, McVay said it helps to be handy, and/or to have a good list of people you can rely on who are. If you are handy yourself and know other people who are, or if you own a number of properties, you can do your own fix up and repair, or have a better chance of negotiating

good prices from others. If you are regularly forced to pay retail prices on repair this will eat quickly into any profits. Another consideration is your market. While the University provides good demand for rental properties, you can also count on a lot of turnover as students come and go; and don’t expect them to be good at maintenance and yard work. It usually takes a year to recover the costs of fixing up a rental unit for the next tenant, even if there is just normal wear and tear, Ramsey explained. This means you are into your second year before you start making money again on that unit. The cost of turnover is also a good reason to stay reasonable with rents and not raise them too often or too much. Keeping tenants happy enough to stay for several years can be good business, and more profitable in the long run than continually raising rents.

adjust your heating and air-conditioning systems to match your family’s schedule throughout the day and night. For every degree you lower your thermostat over an 8-hour period, you cut energy use by about one percent. set it back 10 degrees overnight, and that’s a 10 percent savings. You’ll pay around $50 for the thermostat, but you’ll reap an estimated annual savings of $100.

Want to get into the spirit of going green but don’t know where to start? You would be surprised at the number of projects you can do yourself that will make a difference in your use of energy. here are ten inexpensive ways to go green in your home and backyard.

Build a clothesline

That Won’t Break the Bank!

if you’re from the baby boomer generation, you remember that clotheslines were once the norm. When given the opportunity, when the weather was good our moms and grandmothers preferred to hang clothes out to dry and they always came back in smelling fresh and sweet. When you consider your clothes dryer is probably the biggest energy-guzzling appliance in your house, an old-fashioned clothesline is a simple and easy way to save energy.

heat up in your bathtub or sink? as you watch the water go down the drain, you’re also seeing the energy it took to heat it going down the drain with it. What if you could press a button and have hot water in an instant? You could if you had an on-demand recirculating pump. installed under the sink, the pump captures the not-yet-hot water before it exits the tap and shoots it back to the water heater.

Install a programmable thermostat

Recirculating Pump

Insulate Hot-Water Pipes Just like putting coffee in a thermos, you want to keep your hot water hot as long as possible. insulate

here’s an upgrade that quickly pays for itself. With a programmable thermostat, you can automatically

pipes wherever you can reach them by encasing them in rubber or polyethylene foam tubes. the tubes come with an adhesive-coated slit down the middle, so you just ease them over the pipe and press the ends closed. seal the seams with good old reliable duct tape.

Ceiling fans are a popular home addition no matter what season of the year, but if used improperly, they may not be doing much good in the energy department. Make sure any fan you buy is energy star rated. Lighted ones use fluorescent bulbs instead of hot-burning incandescents or halogens and are up to 50 percent more efficient than standard models. install an occupancy sensor switch that shuts the fan off if no one’s in the room.

Replace Recessed lights From an energy efficiency perspective, recessed or “canned” lights are not good because they usually aren’t sealed. since they can’t have insulation above them, they allow heated air to escape into the attic. You can replace them with newer, airtight models, but an easier fix is to buy a retrofit kit that screws into the existing fixture. Many of these enable you to seal around the rim and behind the bulb, converting the old fixture to one that is airtight and insulation-rated.

Replace Weatherstripping one of the reasons you may be losing heat or air conditioning could be because the seals around your windows and doors have worn out. a quick inspection can tell you whether they need replacing. redo the caulking to seal even tighter. Most experts agree that caulking and weatherstripping will pay for themselves in energy savings within one year.

Clean Green pay attention to the contents of your cleaning products and avoid using those containing toxic properties. good old-fashioned soap, baking soda, and vinegar or lemon juice can take care of most household cleaning needs.

Plant Deciduous Trees You can go green—literally—in your backyard by planting deciduous trees (trees that lose all their leaves in the fall) on the south, east, and west sides of your house. the right tree in the right place provides wind protection, shade, and cool air, while adding beauty, privacy, and wildlife habitat to the landscape. in five years,

panoramic Blue ridge Views!!

Create a Rain Garden Another outside way to go green is to create a rain garden. Instead of diverting your gutter water into a storm drain, channel it into a low spot on your property planted with bushes, grasses, or trees that would love that extra drink. Rain gardens help provide the natural flood-control and water conservation.
