How to Find the Right Property Management Company by Steve Schultz I'm not a big believer in the "one size fits all" approach to anything, but especially when it comes to property management services for single family rental homes. I believe you need to find a company that fits what is important to you. In my company, I speak with a lot of prospective clients that are looking for property management services. In doing so, I can tell you the two most frequently and first asked questions. But they really are not the correct questions to ask because their answers do not lead the person asking them to the correct conclusion. So here are the two most common questions and some discussion about the alternative questions that

provide more information and that will help the person asking them make a better decision.

1. How much do you charge? This question is asked so frequently and without second thought by the person asking, I have come to loathe this question. The underlying assumption in asking this question is that all property managers have exactly the same skill level, knowledge, experience, systems and scope of services such that the only distinguishing variable is the amount they charge for their services. However, this could not be further from the truth. In the case of shopping for a widget with exact specifications, this may be closer to the truth. But even then I would argue you should consider other variables including delivery date, customer service, return policy, and other factors before calling it equal. I mean, who would you rather buy the exact same watch from, the guy on the street who opens up his trench coat and asks you for your selection, or a known retailer that will stand behind your purchase with a solid "no hassle" return policy and a "no cost" service department should your watch need to be repaired? A much better question to ask is "What services do you provide?" Then later in the conversation, you can ask about the corresponding fees so you can decide if the two match based on your expectations. Another question that you need to ask yourself is, "Does this property management company's fee structure align with my interests as a property owner?" Although some things may seem reasonable on the surface, take a closer look and they may not be in your best interest. For example, there are companies that make more money when the tenants turn over than when the tenants stay in the property long term.

2. What is your vacancy rate? I've come to the conclusion that this must be in all the best selling investor books about how to find a good property manager. I've read most of those books and I can tell you I have seen it in most of the books I have read. Although it makes sense for apartment complexes, it doesn't really apply to the single family home market for a couple reasons. First of all, any single family home is either 0% occupied or 100% occupied. Secondly, the vacancy rate of a portfolio of any property management company will vary based on where the bulk of their properties are located, how slow or fast the company is growing, the time of year, the make-up of that particular property management company's portfolio, and many other variables. The better questions to ask is, "How long do you think it will take you to rent my house?" This can be determined based on Multiple Listing Service statistics and using rental comparables for your specific house. If someone can't show you specific data for your rental property, it's simply an educated (hopefully) guess. So the next time you go shopping for a property management company, I hope you keep these alternative questions in mind. I encourage you to take the time to find the company that is the right fit for you. It will lead to a positive experience for you and a long term relationship with your property management company.

Are Short Sales Doomed in 2013? by Ken Ryan, Long Realty Short Sale Facilitator

There appears to be considerable speculation that the IRS Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act will not be extended by Congress prior to its original expiration date of 12/31/2012. I tend to agree with this position; however, there appears to be some kindling this week in Congress regarding this issue to take action. Just what is the IRS Mortgage Forgiveness Debt Relief Act of 2007? In simple terms, if you owe a debt to someone else and they cancel or forgive that debt, the canceled amount may be taxable. The Mortgage Debt Relief Act of 2007 generally allows taxpayers to exclude income from the discharge of debt on their principal residence. Debt reduced through mortgage restructuring, as well as mortgage debt forgiven in connection with a foreclosure or short sale may qualify for relief. I think the real question should be "Does It Really Matter"? Since I am not an Attorney nor CPA or Financial Advisor, my first response would be to seek advice from one of the above that has knowledge and expertise with this area of tax law. However, in speaking with numerous local real estate attorneys and CPAs, there appears to be a consensus that for a large number of short sale of foreclosure transactions, there may not be any taxable event from the

12

IRS even if the IRS Debt Relief Act expires this year. One viewpoint expressed is because Arizona is an Anti-Deficiency State, there may not be any deficiency, therefore there is no debt forgiven, therefore there is no taxable income. Another viewpoint expressed and one I'm most in tune with, is the IRS definition of Insolvency, (different than in bankruptcy), which may cover many short sales or foreclosures. This position is that at the time of the event short sale closing or foreclosure, the property was insolvent and therefore there is no taxable event. In either case, I do not believe in the event of a foreclosure or short sale, homeowners are going to be automatically faced with paying the IRS large sums of money if the Debt Relief Act is not extended. Our challenge is to counteract all the misleading information that has and probably will continue to be promoted by the various media publications. I guess the best thing would be to get the Act extended and then everyone can live Happily Ever After!! Good luck.

Supreme Court is Reviewing the Case of M&I Marshall & Ilsey Bank v. Mueller By Thomas A. Stoops Stoops, Denious, Wilson & Murray, P.L.C. Recently we wrote an article about the March 20, 2012 decision by the Arizona Court of Appeals, Division One in the case of Helvetica Servicing, Inc., a California corporation fna CRM Venture Law, Inc. dba The Helvetica Group v. Michael S. Pasquan, 1 CA-CV 10-0418. That case held that a construction loan that refinances a purchase money loan qualifies for anti-deficiency protections if (1) the deed of trust securing the loan covers the land the dwelling constructed thereon; and (2) the loan proceeds were in fact used to construct a residence that meets the size and use requirements set forth in A.R.S. § 33-729(A). This Court of Appeals decision was not reviewed by the Arizona Supreme Court. Shortly before the decision in the Helvetica case, the Court of Appeals decided M&I Marshall & Ilsley Bank v. Mueller, 1 CA-CV 10-0804, which addresses some similar issues but arguably takes the anti-deficiency statutes a step further in the direction of consumer protection. In that case, the defendants, the Muellers, purchased a plot of vacant land in Arizona. The Muellers borrowed $444,000.00 from M&I Bank to construct a single family home on the property for their own use. To secure the loan, the Muellers executed a deed of trust with M&I Bank and the construction began on the property. However, several months into construction the Muellers abandoned the property and defaulted on the promissory note. M&I Bank instituted a trustee's sale, and after foreclosing on the property, sued the Muellers for a deficiency judgment. The trial court dismissed M&I Bank's deficiency action, finding that the Muellers were

14

entitled to anti-deficiency protections under A.R.S. § 33-814(G). M&I Bank argued before the Court of Appeals that the Muellers were not entitled to anti-deficiency protection because the home was never constructed on the property and therefore the trust property was never utilized for a single-family home. Much as the plaintiffs did in Helvitica, M&I Bank relied on the case of Mid Kansas Federal Savings and Loan Association of Wichita v. Dynamic Development Corporation, 167 Ariz., 122, 804 P.2d 1310 to support its argument. In Mid Kansas, the Supreme Court stated that the borrower who was a homebuilder and did not intend to live in the residences being constructed, was not entitled to protection under A.R.S. § 33-814(G), stating commercial residential properties held by the mortgagor for construction and eventual resale as dwellings are not within the definition of properties "limited to" and utilized for "single-family dwellings." "The property is not utilized as a dwelling when it is unfinished, has never been lived in, and is being held for sale to its first occupant by an owner who has no intent to ever occupy the property." The Court of Appeals distinguished the Mid Kansas case stating that unlike the situation in Mid Kansas where the borrower was a corporation that never intended to occupy the property, the Muellers intended to live in the single-family home upon its completion, and noted that the primary purpose of the Arizona anti-deficiency statutes is to protect "homeowners" from deficiency judgments, not to afford protection to commercial homebuilders. The Court rejected M&I Bank's argument that a person has to physically inhabit the (Continued on next page)

Supreme Court Review (Continued from Page 14)

dwelling, and noted that such a holding would create a blurry and artificial line, stating that an individual facing the possibility of foreclosure may camp out in the unfinished home thereby claiming to be "utilizing" the dwelling, and a person who lived in a new home for a day would be entitled to antideficiency protection, whereas someone who had not yet moved in to a newly constructed home, would not be entitled to such protection. In further distinguishing Mid Kansas, the Court of Appeals noted "Our Supreme Court could have simply stated that a property is not "utilized" as a dwelling when it is unfinished. Instead, the Court stated that "Property is not utilized as a dwelling when it is un- finished, has never been lived in, and is being held for sale to its first occupant by an owner who has no intent to ever occupy the property." In contrast, the Muellers pur- chased the property with the purpose of occupying the dwelling upon completion. The Court of Appeals stated under those circumstances it would

uphold the trial court ruling that the Muellers were entitled to deficiency protection. As can be seen, this case, if upheld by the Arizona Supreme Court, takes the issue of consumer protection a step farther since it deemphasized two of the factors listed in the court in Mid Kansas, i.e., the property was unfinished and has never been lived in and places its primary emphasis on the fact that the Muellers were not holding the property for sale to its first occupant and as owners intended to occupy the property. While this emphasis may prove to be decisive with the Arizona Supreme Court, one can certainly imagine the Arizona Supreme Court holding that a structure is not utilized as a single-family or single-two family dwelling if the borrower abandons construction before the dwelling is completed. A Petition for Review to the Arizona Supreme Court was filed. The Arizona Supreme Court had the Petition for Review on its agenda for August 28, 2012, but no decision on granting review has been published as of the date of this writing.

0 4 40 years of Real Estate Education

Jim Hogan, Jenny Hogan-Lizarraga and Esther Hogan

By Jim Hogan The decision was made! I had sold homes for two years and taught real estate for one. I wanted my own business, so opening a real estate school was a natural for someone with a BS degree in Geology. Wasn't it? I needed a location! I remember driving Tucson's major streets at 10 mph looking for "Space Available" signs. No luck! But on Friday the 13th, my mail said that Pima Mortgage was moving. I knew their space on Swan and Speedway was just right. It was, and Glen Mangels (Greater Arizona Realty) said I could have all 600 square feet of it! That's enough for an office, classroom, restroom and storage area. Wasn't it?

I needed a license! In those days, real estate schools were licensed by the Arizona Board of Private and Technical Schools. The application was a cinch but the $10,000 bond wasn't. I had to go before the entire board in Phoenix, two of whose members had the biggest schools in Tucson: Ed Ford (Ford Schools) and Morris "Mac" Benisch (Tucson School of Real Estate). That would be no problem. Would it?

I needed students! I could meet my overhead and bring home enough bacon with 30 students per month. I would teach both day and night classes to keep costs down. The first night class had four students and the day class two. The next month enrollment halved. Two in the evening and one in the morning. In December we had no students. But one did come in and prepay for class in January. Two days later he called to withdraw because the book looked too hard. I couldn't' let him drop! I'd already spent his tuition. After 45 minutes on the phone, I finally eased his fears. Decreasing enrollment indicates success. Doesn't it?

I needed therapy!

Luckily, caring brokers and agents referred many students who passed the exam with flying colors. So, in 1976 we moved to Grant Road. That was the year Jim Chapman taught his first class for us. 1985 was the year of the big remodel. Our female students of today will never know the thrill of an unheated ladies room in February. Nor will anyone remember that you walked down stairs to get into our office. 1986 brought the Tax Reform Act and from 1987 to 1991, half of Tucson seemed to go bankrupt, move to California, or both. The 1990s through today brought boom times and the biggest bust since the 1930s. Now it's 2013, our 40th year. WOW! There are so many people to thank. First our staff, Misty and Jenny. They are the BEST! We would be lost without them. Second, our instructors, the finest!! Richard Koevary, Dan Carapellucci, George Jenson, Mike Ashurst and Cheryl Terpening. Your eloquence and dedication are greatly appreciated. Also, kudos to all of our continuing education instructors. We hope that our students appreciate their presentations as much as we appreciate them. And of course I would be remiss not to mention Jim Chapman, who passed away in April 2011. We miss you Jim. Finally, grateful and sincere thanks to you, our students. Thanks for passing the test, laughing at our jokes, calling when you have questions, and making us a continuing part of your real estate careers. It's impossible to name all of the wonderful students who have contributed to our success but I must acknowledge Patsy Bradley, Judy Murr, Charles Osment, Roy Kalak, Dennis Kesmeister and Ray Michand. From August, 1973, they are the six original Hogan's Heroes.

I know I was a good teacher but was I a good businessman? I knew that brokers would refer students, but I feared contacting and meeting the brokers. That was all too much for a 27-year-old to handle. Wasn't it?
