IN BRIEF

BUILDERS’ SHOW DRAWS THOUSANDS

Lorna Koeninger remembers the day she and her family moved to Oklahoma City in 1988. “When we were driving into Oklahoma City, there was a billboard — Marolyn Pryor’s picture was on the billboard. And I said, ‘Someday I’m going to work with her.’ That’s exactly what I said,” Koeninger said. Pryor, a Realtor, already was a fixture on the metro area’s real estate scene by 1988, but that billboard, part of Pryor’s bid for the state Senate, didn’t mention it. “You know how things just kind of come down to you? I just said, ‘Someday I’m going to work with her.’ And you know what? I did,” Koeninger said. Koeninger previously worked in land development in Albuquerque, N.M., specializing in legal issues. In Oklahoma City, she first would explore the possibility of a law career, taking a job as a legal assistant with a downtown law firm. When Pryor looked her up in 1992, though, Koeninger willingly came on board with her at Prudential Properties of Oklahoma.

“It’s one of the best things I ever did,” Koeninger said. As 2012 president of the Oklahoma City Metro Association of Realtors, Koeninger said she sees education as an important component of the upcoming year. Shift-

ing financial requirements and new payment assistance programs for home buyers make education crucial. “Unless a Realtor is educated, it’s hard to be out there telling the public what’s going on with that,”

she said. “You need to be constantly, constantly on top of your education. I very strongly believe that.” And Koeninger, 63, an agent SEE REALTORS, PAGE 2F

Planning retirement could require some work Soon after a couple in their early 60s retired from their jobs with a manufacturing firm, they sold their spacious suburban splitlevel and moved to a ranch-style place half its size in a seaside Costa Rican village. But the setting — which initially seemed like paradise — proved a poor choice for the couple. Within a matter of months, they felt isolated from the friends and connections that made their lives fulfilling before the move. “They told me they were lonely and felt like social outcasts. ... Life had lost its meaning for them,” recalled Keith Weber, the couple’s financial planner at the time. With Weber’s guidance, the couple sold their property three years after their move. They returned to the U.S., where they bought a

The annual International Builders’ Show, organized by the National Association of Home Builders, wraps up today Feb. 11 in Orlando, Fla. About 50,000 builders, suppliers and others in the housing business were expected to attend business, networking and education sessions and check out new products and services from some 900 exhibitors in the trade show. Oklahoma builders attending include Brandon Perkins of Tulsa, president of the Oklahoma State Home Builders Association; Kurt Dinnes, president of the Central Oklahoma Home Builders Association; Steve Allen from Oklahoma City; Dave Callant from Enid; and Phil Rhees from Tulsa.

house near their grown children. As this true story illustrates, a heavenly setting doesn’t necessarily translate into a rewarding retirement. “Filling our lives with pleasant experiences — like golf and travel — doesn’t bring lasting happiness for most people. To be truly happy, most people need to feel a sense of purpose in life,” said Weber, a retirement coach and author of “Rethinking Retirement.” Here are two pointers for couples who are seeking the best possible area for the purchase of a re-

tirement property: I Go over your retirement expectations with your partner before moving. Dorian Mintzer, a psychologist who specializes in retirement and relationship coaching, said, “There’s no one-size-fitsall for retirement. Many times, the partners in a relationship have very different passions they want to pursue.” She urges couples to intensively discuss their notions of an ideal place to retire before they take the plunge. To encourage this process, she co-authored (with Roberta Taylor) a book of exercises, “The Couples Retirement Puzzle: 10 Must-Have Conversations for Transitioning to the Second Half of Life.” Though couples might have vastly different conceptions of their shared future, she said that com-

promise can usually be found. Suppose, for instance, that one partner places a high priority on living in a warm climate, while the other is focused on intellectual stimulation. Rather than move to a resort area, the pair might decide to settle in a college town in a Southern state. I Realize the potential long-term impact on your relationship of a faraway move. Ernie Zelinski, author of “How to Retire Wild, Happy and Free,” said, “It’s important to have realistic expectations.” He cautions against the false lure of novelty, noting that the pristine appeal of an isolated setting can quickly pale. Problems are especially likely to arise if one partner grows restless and wants to move back near family and friends while the other wishes to remain in the fa-

raway locale. To avoid choosing a location where one or both partners might be unhappy, he urges retirees to “test drive” any faraway community with an extended vacation — ideally for at least one to two months — before deciding whether to move there. When visiting a potential destination, Zelinski recommends people bring along a checklist to ensure the community would meet their requirements. Among other factors, they’ll want to check out a town’s transportation facilities and its access to cultural and entertainment venues. Moreover, the ideal retirement location should be well equipped with medical facilities in the event that one or both partners becomes ill or requires surgery. UNIVERSAL UCLICK

with Paradigm AdvantEdge Real Estate, practices what she preaches, spending a lot of time at the Realtors’ headquarters at 3131 Northwest Expressway. “I’ve been living down here practically for the last 20 years,” she said. “Yeah, I’m a familiar face down here.” She served on the committee that helped establish the Realtor Shop inside the headquarters. It has grown from a booth offering forms in the lobby to a spacious retail space that has become a de facto clubhouse for agents on break from classes or in the area for business. Signs of all kinds line one wall; shirts and accessories line another. Yet another wall is taken up with shelves full of forms, any form an agent might need. Nearby tables provide work space, and free coffee offers what might be a much-needed jolt. Some agents even meet clients there, sipping coffee and munching free popcorn as they consult. “So, it’s kind of a member thank-you,” Koeninger said.

Good career fit She began her real estate career in Dallas, getting licensed there in 1976. “My family has always been involved in real estate,” she said. “My dad was a builder, and we just always had real estate in our blood. My brothers were always really involved in their associations.” And real estate has proved to be the perfect fit. “I’m a people person,” she said. “I like working with people, and what better way to work with people than being in real estate and being out there with them every day?” After she married, she moved to Albuquerque, N.M., where she worked with developer Ben Abruzzo — better known to the rest of the country as the balloonist who first spanned the Atlantic and Pacific, and one of the forces behind Albuquerque’s balloon festival — in some of the city’s bestheeled areas. She was moving from there to Oklahoma City when she saw Pryor’s billboard. “And I wanted to buy the old rat-infested buildings downtown,” she said. The Metropolitan Area Projects — MAPS — was still a few years down away, and downtown Oklahoma City was largely abandoned. Koeninger ultimately passed on the idea. “I love telling that story,” she said. “I could’ve been a billionaire today if I’d have pushed it.” Oklahoma’s housing market was enough of a challenge, though, still struggling out of the oil bust earlier in the decade. Koeninger took a “glasshalf-full” approach. “At that point, Oklahoma was way down,” she

said, “and the only place it was going to go was up.” The past few years, she said, she’s watched as real estate companies have merged, even as small, independent offices have sprung up, often with experienced husband-wife teams. “Combining your resources and your knowledge and your resources, you know, it just makes you stronger,” she said. Of the small shops with experienced hands, she

said, “You can’t really retire anymore. And their knowledge in real estate is so strong, and they have such a following — I mean, you have such a database. They want to do their own thing with their own people, and real estate makes it possible for them to do that.” In short: Times, they are a-changing in real estate. Oklahoma felt some impact from the national housing market woes thanks to foreclosures and

squeezed credit. “But Oklahoma’s central location offers it an advantage,” Koeninger said. “And so does the climate nurtured by Oklahoma City Mayor Mick Cornett. I think he has a really positive outlook for Oklahoma City and the surrounding areas.” She said her outlook is equally positive.“I think in 2012 — this year is going to be a fantastic year. I’m already seeing it,” she said.

Economy driving shift to more remodeling WASHINGTON — Do you fit any of these descriptions? I You came through the housing bust and recession far more debt-averse than you were before. I You’ve been reluctant to consider selling your house because you don’t believe you’ll get what it’s really worth. I Buying a new home is out of the question, even with today’s low interest rates, because it’s so difficult to qualify for a mortgage. I You’ve gradually come to the conclusion that it’s smarter to improve the house you already own — spend some money on making it more comfortable, more up to date — and just stay put for a while. Whether you share them or not, sentiments such as these are having profound effects on real estate markets across the country, fueling post-recession interest in remodeling. In fact, according to federal estimates, by late last year the annualized dollar value of expenditures on renovations outstripped expenditures on newly constructed single family homes — a huge change from pre-recession years, when the ratio was sometimes 3-to-1 in favor of new construction. Underscoring this trend: In late January, the National Association of Home Builders’ remodeling market index hit its highest level in five years. It’s not that remodeling is moving into boom territory, said David Crowe, chief economist of the association, but rather that for many consumers, fixing up their house now fits their sentiments — and their finances — far better than selling or buying.

Changing strategies Interviews with builders and remodelers in different parts of the country point to important changes in homeowner strategies. In Seattle, Joe McKinstry, president of Joseph McKinstry Construction Co., said inquiries about possible remodeling projects have nearly tripled in the past 12 months. “I feel like people are starting to say, ‘Well, we’re not going to move anytime soon because, if we do, we’re going to get 30 percent less than the house is worth. Why don’t we do something in the kitchen or bathroom for our own enjoyment, since we’re not going anywhere real soon?’ ” he said. Generally the projects that people want to do are no longer on the grand McMansion show-off scale, but smaller, more modest, less costly efforts than five to seven years ago, with more emphasis on finishing details and quality than square footage. “Now (owners) are being much more judicious about how they spend their money,” McKinstry said. “They’ve gotten smarter and more analytical” about what they want to invest in their real estate. Bob Peterson, chief executive of ABD Design/ Build in Fort Collins, Colo., also is seeing a significant jump in interest in renovating, especially from owners who have been in their houses for years, have built up some savings and managed to get through the recession without falling behind on their mortgages. The average project that Peterson’s firm is doing now costs about $45,000, and 90 percent of his clients are finding ways to pay cash. “If they’re financing anything, they’re not telling us about it,” said Peterson, who also is chairman of the Remodelers Council of the National Association of Home Builders.

Kenneth Harney THE NATION’S HOUSING

Sources of financing Bruce Case, president of Case Design/Remodeling of Bethesda, Md., agreed that because of high underwriting hurdles in the mortgage market, the majority of his remodeling clients are tapping savings, retirement accounts, liquidating securities and the like. But 20 percent of his firm’s dollar volume still involves some form of financing, particularly for higher-cost projects. Where do these folks go for their money? Case said local and regional banks and credit unions are increasingly important sources. They tend to know the local real estate environment better and “are willing to look at (applications) more holistically.” Some clients are successfully using the Federal

Housing Administration’s renovation financing program known as “FHA 203(k).” Others who have solid equity stakes, high credit scores and other assets that they can bring to the table are persuading large national banks to give them a mortgage. And a few are pulling on lines of credit that weren’t slashed during the recession.

Facing reality What Case and other remodelers are not seeing is clients who fret about immediate paybacks from the improvements. Most owners want assurance that their renovations will enhance the property’s market value, but boomtime expectations of 100 percent-plus returns on investment are gone. Most people are happy with modest returns, remodelers said, which is right in line with what’s happening overall in the real estate market: a slow, modest recovery, spurred by modest and realistic expectations.

Insulating exterior wall brings many questions Q: My 1975 split-level home is brick-faced with aluminum siding all around. I wish to place exterior insulation, hardpanel type, on the exterior foundation wall (of the basement). The exterior foundation was backfilled in after the house was built. The interior walls of the basement have not yet been insulated, but I will do that in the future. Specific questions: 1. I will dig around the foundation wall to place the insulation at 3 feet below the frost line; that would make the panel length required about 7 feet, with 4 feet being visible. What kind of insulation is best for this location? 2. I would paint the insulation panels to match the concrete, using exterior latex. Is latex the best paint system to use? 3. Do you think this would reduce the heat loss from the basement walls to the exterior, and is it costeffective? 4. Do you have any articles regarding the insulation of the exterior walls? A: You might want to

Paul Bianchina HANDY @ HOME

consider just placing the insulation on the interior walls. As long as your basement is dry, this would save you some expense, as well as a lot of additional work. It also reduces the risk of termites, which can become a problem in some areas where foam board is used below grade. To answer your questions: 1. For below-grade applications, you should use an extruded polystyrene insulation that’s specifically rated for this use. Extruded polystyrene resists degrading from soil and moisture contact, has good compressive strength (the soil won’t crush it), and retains its R-value even when damp. It can be applied directly to concrete basement walls or over damp-proofing. Installation is usually done

with an approved adhesive. 2. Extruded polystyrene (and all foam boards) that is exposed above grade needs to be physically protected against damage as well as covered with a thermal barrier. Simply painting it is not adequate. For your particular application, your best bet is to cover it with a sheet metal cover with a sloped top to allow rainwater runoff. 3. Yes, it will prevent heat loss. As far as being cost effective, that depends on how much expense you need to put into the excavation work. Again, you might want to consider applying it to the interior instead. 4. I would go to www. energysavers.gov, which is part of the U.S. Department of Energy. Do a search for foam board or basement insulation, and you’ll get a wealth of information about everything from types of products to installation techniques. Remodeling and repair questions?

Buying home with septic system calls for inspection DEAR BARRY: We bought our home two months ago, and this week our septic system backed up into the basement. When the septic contractor dug up the tank, it had no lid and was filled with dirt. If we had known about this, repairs could have been made before we bought the property. Shouldn’t this have been caught by our home inspector? Whitney DEAR WHITNEY: Home inspectors report defects that are visible and accessible. Conditions that are underground are exempt from that kind of inspection. The only clue your home inspector might have had would have been slow or congested drains at the sinks, tubs or showers. If those fixtures were draining properly on the day of the inspection, there is no way your home inspector could have known about the problem. When buying a home with a septic system, it is standard procedure for sellers to provide a septic report from a qualified contractor. A septic contractor should have excavated the tank before you purchased the home. The tank should have been pumped out, and the entire system should have been tested and evaluated.

Barry Stone INSPECTOR’S IN THE HOUSE

If any real estate agents were involved in the transaction, they should have recommended that a septic inspection take place. Failure by an agent to advise a septic inspection would constitute professional negligence. The big question is whether the sellers were

aware of the problem. A septic tank full of dirt must have caused previous backups. It so, it would be reasonable to expect that the sellers had knowledge of this condition. Disclosure laws in most states require sellers to provide information about such defects. You should contact the sellers and agents about this situation immediately, and be sure to take pictures of the impacted tank. To write to Barry Stone, go to www. housedetective.com.

New York sues banks over foreclosures BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

ALBANY, N.Y. — New York’s attorney general accused some of the nation’s largest banks of deceit and fraud in using an electronic mortgage registry that he said puts homeowners at a disadvantage in foreclosures while saving banks over $2 billion. Democrat Eric Schneiderman sued Bank of America, J.P. Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo over their use of the Mortgage Electronic Registration Systems Inc., or MERS, claiming the banks submitted court documents containing false and misleading information that appeared to provide the authority for foreclosures when there was none. The lawsuit also names the registry operator, MERSCORP Inc. of Virginia. Schneiderman claims the MERS system has eliminated homeowners’ ability to track

property transfers through traditional public records. He said the electronic system now stores that data and is plagued by inaccuracies and what the lawsuit calls “faulty and sloppy document preparation and execution practices.” “The banks created the MERS system as an end-run around the property recording system, to facilitate the rapid securitization and sale of mortgages,” Schneiderman said. “Once the mortgages went sour, these same banks brought foreclosure proceedings en masse based on deceptive and fraudulent court submissions, seeking to take homes away from people with little regard for basic legal requirements or the rule of law.” MERS spokeswoman Janis L. Smith said the company complies with all laws and county and state recording regulations. “Federal and state courts

around the country have repeatedly upheld the MERS business model, and the validity of MERS as legal mortgagee and nominee for lenders,” she said. MERS was set up by banks to

rapidly package and sell mortgages as securities without recording each transaction in county records offices. Complaints allege among other things that homeowners have trouble responding to foreclosure actions and mortgage inaccuracies because MERS makes it difficult to find out who owns the mortgages. “By creating this bizarre and complex end-around of the traditional public recording system, banks achieved their primary goal — over 70 million mortgage loans, including millions of subprime loans, have been registered in the MERS system and the industry has saved more than $2 billion in recording fees,” according to the lawsuit. The lawsuit also claims that over several years, “banks rapidly securitized and sold off millions of loans, often misrepresenting the quality and nature of

Demolition plan upsets neighbors BY MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE INFORMATION SERVICES

LOS ANGELES — A New York hedge fund manager’s plan to demolish an eye-catching steel-andglass home in Malibu and build a two-story California Mission-style residence has neighbors in a lather over the potential loss of ocean views and what some decry as the waste of a perfectly good house. Once described as among the most significant new structures in Malibu, the building set for destruction was designed by architect Bart Prince and hugs the slope in a neighborhood of pri-

vate tennis courts, swimming pools and lush lawns. Among residents urging preservation of the house — as well as million-dollar views — are Julia Roberts, Sean Penn, Don Rickles and Chad Smith, drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers. “In my wildest dreams, I would never, ever have thought it would be possible for someone to build closer to our home … and also into the view of what you know is so precious to us and our family,” said Smith, who lives next door and is leading the effort to stop the project. “It blows me away that this is possible.” To some, the controver-

sy recalls other high-profile battles over coastal lands. U2 guitarist the Edge, whose real name is David Evans, has for years encountered blowback from the California Coastal Commission and residents over plans to build five widely spaced mansions on a scenic ridge top. And in 2003, TV tycoon A. Jerrold Perenchio tussled with the coastal panel after environmental activists blew the whistle on his unpermitted pitch-and-putt golf course in the exclusive Malibu Colony. But this preservation battle is unusual in that the Prince-designed house was completed only in

2005. Although it was showcased by the late architectural photographer Julius Shulman in his book “Malibu: A Century of Living by the Sea,” wouldbe preservationists are finding it tough to lay claim to historical significance. The 1-acre property was bought in 2010 by the Sogel Family Trust for $6.2 million, down from the original listing price of $9.9 million, after 318 days on the market. Behind the trust are Sean Fahey, a co-founder of Claren Road Asset Management, and his wife, Robin Luce. The couple said the home did not fit their needs or taste.

the mortgages being transferred.” Last month, President Barack Obama announced a new Justice Department fraud-fighting unit to bring together 55 prosecutors and federal and state investigators focusing on one of the contributing causes behind the financial crisis — the collapse of residential mortgage-backed securities. Obama named Schneiderman as co-chairman. Delaware officials have said MERS has sown confusion among consumers, investors and other stakeholders in the mortgage finance system. Officials claim the company has damaged the integrity of Delaware’s land records system and led to unlawful foreclosure practices. The Massachusetts attorney general sued the banks and MERS in December and Delaware’s attorney general has sued MERS Corp.

N.M. residents are target of rental scams BY ROZANNA M. MARTINEZ Albuquerque Journal

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A handful of online scams have touched online home listings in Albuquerque and neighboring Rio Rancho. People have taken online information on homes for sale and then advertised them as being for rent and taken deposit money from would-be renters, said Realtor Mike Lizzi. Lizzi and Rio Rancho police have some suggestions on how potential homeowners or renters can avoid being duped by scammers looking to take their money. Look for red flags. For instance, beware if some-

one conducting a transaction claims to be out of the country. “They say how they went overseas on some type of work contract and have documents and tried to look for a management company before they left but could not find one,” Lizzi said. Police Sgt. Nicholas Onken said potential homebuyers or renters should meet with the person selling or renting the property. He also suggested that buyers and renters do comparison shopping to make sure the asking price or rent is in the same range of other surrounding properties. Lizzi said, “Go drive by the home. See if someone is living there. See if there is a sign in the yard. …

Never ever wire money or send documents.” Lizzi said scam artists also use personal catastrophes to distract potential buyers and say they are offering them a home at a lower asking price because they are in some type of dire straits. Onken said people with bad credit, financial issues or under other stress might allow the pressures to cloud their decision making. He said that potential buyers and renters should do their research before agreeing to rent or buy a home. Sam artists, Lizzi said, “will also say money is not important and they just want someone to take care of the house.” MCT INFORMATION SERVICES

Marseille is French Eclectic

SYNLawn is a synthetic grass that is easy to install and maintain. MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE PHOTO

Synthetic lawn easy to install, maintain BY KATHY VAN MULLEKOM Daily Press (Newport News, Va.)

The Marseille has a French Eclectic flavor. Telling elements include: a steeply pitched hip roof, a wrought-iron balcony railing and shutters that flank arched, multipane windows. Popular from about 1915 to 1945, this style passed out of fashion for several decades. Neo-eclectic homes regained popularity in the 1960s, and the trend is still growing. This plan is designed for construction on a lot that slopes up to the left. Families who enjoy entertaining will delight in the large gathering spaces. The kitchen, nook and family room flow together at the rear. This window-

rich space has a French door that opens onto a partially covered deck. Four sets of multipane windows sparkle across the back wall, and two more border the fireplace. In the kitchen, a raised eating bar rims the work island. Cupboards and counters line three sides of the kitchen as well, and lazy Susan shelving makes corner access a breeze. A handy powder room is near everything, and the generously sized utility room is also close, along with a large recreation room. This room could house a pool table, home entertainment center, and

so on. Each of the four bedrooms upstairs has direct access to a bathroom. Bathrooms for the Marseille’s owners’ suite and one additional bedroom are private, while the other two bedrooms share a twosection bathroom. Other owners suite amenities include a dual vanity, spa tub and walk-in shower. A review plan of the Marseille, including floor plans, elevations, section and artist’s conception, can be purchased for $25 by phone, mail or online. Add $5 for shipping and handling.

The dream of a perfect lawn, if that’s your goal in life, is easier than you think. No watering. No fertilizing. No mowing. No weeding. Just sit back and enjoy the sight of green grass — synthetic, that is. SYNLawn, the maker of residential synthetic grass, teams with Lowe’s to provide the look of a perfect lawn for weekend warriors who want to be the envy of their neighborhood. The company provides rolls of synthetic turf in the most popular sizes, along with basic installation tools for customers who need smaller amounts of turf and want to install it themselves, according to a news release. SYNLawn has been testing the program in some Lowe’s stores for a couple years, and now offers it in 463 stores from South Carolina to California; it should be in all

stores within a couple years. Online, you can find it in fescue, zoysia and Bermuda textures, as well as pre-cut putting greens. The new program offers three pre-cut and prepackaged sizes offering flexibility for design. Those sizes are 3-by-11, 5by-7 ½ and 7 ½-by-11 feet. These pre-cut pieces of synthetic turf can be used for a variety of projects ranging from landscaping areas, pet areas, play areas, common areas, garages, basements, roof decks and outdoor patios.
