Homes, offices showcased EVENT | THE ANNUAL ARCHITECTURE TOUR PROMISES TO SHOWCASE SEVERAL STOPS WITH UNIQUE VIEWS BY DYRINDA TYSON For The Oklahoman firstname.lastname@example.org
Turn any direction in the clean-lined modern home at 824 NW 7, and there it is — the view. “That’s what drew us — the view,” said Emma Rolls, who lives there with her husband, Lee Peoples, and their 7-year-old daughter, Amelia. Randy Floyd of Randy Floyd Architects designed the home, one of several stops on the American Institute of ArchitectsCentral Oklahoma Chapter’s 11th annual Architecture Tour from noon to 6 p.m. April 14. Tickets are $15 at any stop on tour day or $12 in advance through Thursday at TAPARCHITECTURE, 415 N Broadway; the AIA-Central Oklahoma Office, 3535 N Classen Blvd.; or online at www.aiacoc.org/tour/. Beyond the living room and kitchen windows, the panorama of Oklahoma City stretches out toward the horizon. The Devon tower towers above it all, glinting in the late afternoon sunlight. “It’s really beautiful at sunset,” Rolls said, noting that the sinking sun often reflects off the tower’s windows and bathes the whole area in pinkish light. Across the city, the views from the home at 2801 NE 120, another stop on the tour, are equally stunning, but it’s a tapestry of twisting greenery that lies past the windows. Legendary Oklahoma City architect George Seminoff built the original modernist 20-by-40-foot brick-and-glass box in the 1950s as a weekend bachelor pad. The structure expanded as he married his wife Sharon and their family grew, with a two-story addition taking shape next to it. “As the house grew, he
behind the unusually high rate of contract cancellations and settlement delays in the real estate market? With signs of recovery emerging in many parts of the country, shouldn’t deals be zipping along with minimal complications? Apparently not. Nearly one-third of realty agents in a new national survey reported experiencing contract cancellations — purchases crumbling before going to closing — in February. That’s up dramatically from a similar poll a year earlier, when just 9 percent of agents reported cancellations. Another 18 percent reported delays in scheduled closings in the latest study, which involved approximately 3,000 agents surveyed by the National Association of

had the glass wall (in the original structure moved outward),” said Larry Pickering of Fitzsimmons Architects, which is working on the home for the new owner, Brent Kliewer. “At some point he decided he wanted more space in that room, so he added an atrium. There was a little ficus tree outside, and that became an inside tree.” That “inside tree” is now more than 40 years old, and its branches snake across the atrium’s glass. Architect Brian Fitzsimmons said he and Pickering called in a “tree guru” to help them design their work around the tree. “We wanted to make sure this ficus stayed healthy because it’s sort of the soul of SEE VIEW, PAGE 2F
Realtors. Tops on the list of issues? I Appraisals below contract. You may assume that the true market value of a house is what a seller and buyer agree to in a binding contract, but it’s not. The appraiser hired by the bank may come up with a different opinion of value — significantly below what was agreed between the parties — and this is occurring with far greater frequency today than in previous years. Part of the problem is the excessive use of pricedepressed foreclosure sales chosen as “comparables” to value nondistressed houses under pending contracts. But some appraisers are inexperienced, unfamiliar with local pricing trends and go far beyond their normal duties.
S.C. Johnson now offers popular cleaning products in concentrated form. The company introduced 2.9-ounce bottles of Windex, Fantastik, Pledge, Scrubbing Bubbles and Shout Carpet concentrates. A bottle of concentrate is mixed with water to fill a trigger spray bottle. The bottles use 79 percent less plastic than a standard bottle, and the smaller amounts of liquid require less fuel to transport, the company says. The concentrates are available only online at www.scjgreen choices.com. A single bottle of concentrate is $2.50, a trigger bottle is 50 cents and a starter kit is $5, containing two bottles of one type of concentrate and a trigger bottle. Shipping is $3.

Despite recovery signs, complications abound for real estate contracts, loans WASHINGTON — What’s
For example, Risa Bell, an agent for national broker Redfin in Boston, recently represented purchasers of a bank-owned property being sold “as is.” An appraiser for the lender not only detailed a long list of needed repairs to the house, but said the deal could only proceed if the prospective buyers spent thousands of dollars fixing up the house before — not after — closing. Along the way, frozen pipes in the unheated house broke and a contractor hired to do repairs filed a mechanic’s lien requiring payment before the title could be transferred. All of this combined to kill the financing and torpedo the closing, but the buyers ultimately were approved by a second lender using a different appraiser, who made no such demands for
repairs in advance. I Ultraconservative underwriting and documentation requirements. It’s no longer just towering credit score minimums, hefty down payments and mind-bending paperwork submissions that get mortgage applicants turned down. “It’s a lot of other stuff, too,” said Melissa Zavala, broker and owner of Broadpoint Properties in Escondido, Calif. Increasingly she’s been running into regulatory hoops and restrictive underwriting rules at the Federal Housing Administration, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac that knock signed contracts off the tracks or at least delay them for months. I Poor service by lender staff. Agents in the survey identified “lack of customer service” and “gen-

erally bad attitudes” as contributing factors to delays and some contract failures. But Zavala said realty agents themselves need to be on the ball when loan processing deadlines begin to slip or communication breaks down with lenders. Bottom line: If you seriously want to go to closing on a house you’re buying or selling, make sure you know all the key rules and requirements up front, then stay on top of the lending, escrow, title and real estate professionals assigned to your transaction. And don’t give up if your deal runs into complications. There are more of them out there than usual.

the house,” Fitzsimmons said. But it was more than just the view that drew the Rolls-Peoples family to that location in the Cottage District — it was close to their jobs at Oklahoma City University, close to their favorite places downtown and within range of Wilson Elementary School. For Kliewer, an Oklahoma-born film curator who lived in Santa Fe, N.M., for 27 years, the process of acquiring his new home was a more gradual one. His father’s declining health drew him back to Oklahoma a few years ago, and an uncle who knew the Seminoffs brought Kliewer out to the property to meet Sharon Seminoff. Her husband had suffered a stroke and was moved to Dallas to be near their children, leaving her alone in the house. The Seminoffs had been interested in selling the house so the family could reunite in Dallas, but they had made no serious efforts to put it on the market, Kliewer said, “so we actually over the period of a year were talking about it.” He closed on the property in 2010. It includes a studio and enormous shop as well. All of George Seminoff’s files, decades’ worth of floor plans, sketches and renderings, came with it. “We’d like to find a good home for them,” Fitzsimmons said. Other stops on the tour are: I 6614 N Pennsylvania (James and Jennifer Weinland) Fitzsimmons Architects took on this challenge as well, opening up the interior of the Colonial-inspired home by installing a porch and larger windows on the ground floor as well as replacing the tiny secondstory dormers with expanded “sky windows” to allow light in from above.

Tips on landing sweet mortgage Rents are rising in many areas, making homeownership a more alluring alternative to renting. That’s a major reason mortgage specialists are now predicting an uptick in activity among prospective first-time buyers. “In some areas it’s now less expensive to buy than rent. Although the real estate market still isn’t super robust, more buyers are moving off the sidelines,” said Ray Eickhoff, a regional vice president with Fairway Independent Mortgage, a mortgage banking firm with offices throughout the country. Eickhoff said the widespread view that the economy is gradually recovering is the primary factor strengthening many neighborhood markets. But Scott Lanoff, a mortgage broker who heads his own firm, American Success Mortgage, cautioned that all purchasers can expect a rigorous mortgage application process, given that lenders now operate in a much more demanding regulatory environment compared to the period before the recession. “I’ve been in the mortgage field 27 years and it’s never been harder to get a home loan,” he said. Keith Gumbinger, a vice president at HSH Associates, which tracks mortgage rates countrywide, says there are currently many fewer companies in the mortgage market. Even so, he said homebuyers can still command the attention of many good lenders. Here are a few pointers for prospective first-time homebuyers: I Get an early jump on the mortgage search process. The mortgage market is always evolving. In addition to the traditional 30-year fixed rate mortgage, new loan products are constantly developed by the industry. Most innovations involve adjustable-rate mortgages of one type or another. But they can differ dramatically in their names, terms and conditions. Gumbinger said both first-time buyers and repeat purchasers need as much lead time as possible to educate themselves on mortgage basics, to sort through alternative home-loan choices and to compare lenders and rates. Gumbinger suggested mortgage shoppers seek consumer information through his firm’s website, www.hsh.com. Of course, most homeloan applicants now favor traditional fixed-rate mortgages. But Gumbinger said buyers who expect to stay in the home they purchase for just a few years might consider a so-called “hybrid loan” on which the interest rate stays firm for three to 10 years before adjusting to market levels, because the initial rate would be lower than that of a fixed-rate mortgage. I Hold out for a lender willing to give you face time. Gerri Detweiler, a consumer finance expert and author of “The Ultimate Credit Handbook,” encourages first-time buyers to seek a lender who will instruct them on the intricacies of home loans.

Ellen James Martin SMART MOVES “A reputable mortgage lender should spend at least 30 to 60 minutes with you on the fundamentals and should help you to begin fixing flaws on your credit reports,” Detweiler said. How do you find a sympathetic lender? Gumbinger said real estate agents are usually a good source. But he said you should look beyond their suggestions, also asking friends or relatives who recently purchased a home. I Arrive at the lender’s office well prepared. To streamline the process, there’s no substitute for gathering key documents in advance of your meeting. Ideally, these should include recent pay stubs, your latest W-2s, and a couple of years’ worth of federal tax returns, as well as bank and savings account statements. “They’re necessary to help your lender set the upper limit on how much you can afford, a process known as ‘pre-approval,“’ Gumbinger said. By providing these documents early, your lender can quickly calculate your top borrowing limit and assess your eligibility for various lending programs. I Look into your credit standing to gain the best available mortgage rate. Under federal law, you’re entitled to one free credit report each year from the three largest credit bureaus: Equifax, Experian and TransUnion. You can easily request these online (www.annualcreditreport.com). In addition to your credit reports, you’ll want to access your credit scores. Such scores, which draw on data from the credit bureaus, seek to provide lenders with a quantitative measure of a person’s credit risk. Most lenders still use the scoring method pioneered by FICO. In most cases, you’ll need to pay a fee for your credit scores. One way to obtain them is through the FICO website: www.myfico.com. You can also receive credit scores through the three large credit bureaus. FICO
scores range from 300 to 850 — the higher the score, the more likely you are to get the best available rate. As soon as you’ve chosen the home you want to buy, it’s time to get serious about making your mortgage application. And with your credit scores in hand, you can readily begin the process of comparison shopping for rates. Gumbinger said you may wish to begin the rate-shopping process with the lender who tutored you on the basics. But he strongly suggested you extend your rate search beyond the first lender. He also recommends you consult community banks and credit unions. “Try to gather at least 10 to 12 rate quotes before you applying for a mortgage. But always remember you’re not only shopping rates. You also want quality service,” Gumbinger said. To contact Ellen James Martin, email her at firstname.lastname@example.org. UNIVERSAL UCLICK

Right at home: living large in small space BY KIM COOK
she said. “Look for space on the verticals — railings, hooks and shelves on doors and walls can hold baskets and clothing, and serve as drying areas for laundry.” She thinks many people err by buying too much storage, ending up with more stuff that takes space.
For The Associated Press
Small may be in when it comes to homes, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy to decorate. A few simple guidelines, however, can turn a small space from Dilemma to De-Lovely. Maxwell GillinghamRyan, founder of the decor blog Apartment Therapy and author of “The Big Book of Small, Cool Spaces” (Clarkson Potter, 2010), thinks it’s all about light. “The single most powerful influencer in a room is the lighting,” he said. Every room should have three sources of illumination, which will bounce off walls and create a visual expanse, Gillingham-Ryan said. Track lighting is a good alternative to freestanding fixtures if space is a problem. “Track has really improved in the past few years. You don’t have to buy a big section with large lights; there are many smaller, attractive options,” he said. Rather than buy adjustable furniture for a multipurpose small space, “it’s better to find good pieces that do what they’re supposed to,” he said. For example, instead of an ottoman with a lid that flips into a tray, buy a great ottoman and a great tray. “You’ll appreciate both pieces so much more.” Gillingham-Ryan suggested limiting the color palette of a small room. He likes off-white in all its iterations, with bright white on ceilings. “Keep floors dark — they’re calming and grounding, and will make the walls seem higher,” he said. Use accessories, such as a great rug, to add color. “You can’t change your square footage, but you can change the way the space feels,” he said. Elaine Griffin, a New

York-based designer and author of “Design Rules” (Gotham, 2009), said a welcoming foyer is near the top of her list for small spaces. “It’s an important part of the psychological experience of coming home. I like to create a f`aux foyer’ by sitting a decorative cube or box adjacent to the door with a tray for mail, and perhaps a shelf above for keys, a flower and a fragrant candle. Mount a mirror above the shelf,” she said. In the living area, “avoid the temptation to put your sofa on the long wall. Put it on the short wall, and you’ll have more room to
create decor zones,” Griffin said. Loveseats — popular purchases for small apartments — are “a no-no. Truthfully, they only sit one. Go for the betterproportioned 72-to-76inch a`partment-sized’ sofa.” In tiny bathrooms, Griffin said, “I’m a big fan of wall-mountable, square mini-shelves, which I station in multiples behind the door. Save the most visible space above the toilet for art.” Janice Simonson, IKEA’s design spokeswoman, seconds that approach. “Often people only look at the f`ootprint’ of the room,”

“Take the time to plan; don’t buy anything till you’ve moved in and unpacked, to see what’s needed,” she said. Some other general tips: I Downsize. What do you need and what can you live without? Rip all your CDs to a hard drive, then sell or donate them. Get rid of anything you rarely

Building department should inspect home DEAR BARRY: I was planning to purchase a 50year-old home that has several additions and has been remodeled more than once. The records at the building department show no permits since the house was originally built, so I canceled my purchase offer. The owners dropped 10 percent off the selling price, hoping that I would resume the purchase. Instead of a price reduction, I would like the sellers to get an as-built permit and have the building improvements signed off. What do you recommend? Lori DEAR LORI: Your strategy is a good one. Having the home inspected and approved by the building department is a better idea
than a 10-percent discount. If the sellers are that anxious to sell the property, who knows what manner of defects await discovery? The 10-percent discount may or may not be sufficient to offset potential repair needs. Let the sellers have the property inspected and approved by the building department. When they’re done with that, be sure to follow up by hiring a qualified home inspector of your own. DEAR BARRY: I want to buy a 4-year-old house with solar panels and radiant floor heat. The home inspectors I’ve called say they don’t evaluate “nonstandard” things like solar panels and radiant heat. What can I do since it ap-

pears the inspection industry hasn’t kept up with the building industry? Catherine DEAR CATHERINE: This is not a matter of keeping up with the building industry. Home inspections are visual inspections, done without the use of sophisticated test equipment. A comprehensive inspection requires the professional expertise of specialty contractors. The solar panels should be inspected by a licensed solar contractor; the heating system by a licensed HVAC contractor. To write to Barry Stone, visit him on the web at www.housedetective.com.

A lender is an ‘it’ Your bank doesn’t have feelings or emotions, but it does have goals. If you recognize this and act accordingly, you will find it much easier to get what you want from your bank. For the first few months that I wrote this column, I would consistently hear from my editor that a bank is not a “they” but rather an “it.” I would write something such as, “Call your lender and see if they will help you” and he would correct the sentence to “Call your lender and see if it will help you.” I finally caught on. But I notice that most of my clients refer to the bank as “they.” I wisely don’t say anything. I’m there to solve my clients’ issues, not to correct their grammar. But what we say is an indication of what we think,
and what we think determines how we approach the various problems that we all face from time to time. A bank is a thing — an inanimate set of policies and procedures created to provide value to its customers, who, in turn, help create profit for the business’ owners or shareholders. The bank doesn’t have feelings or emotions, but it does have goals. If you recognize this and act accordingly, you will find it much easier to get what you want from your bank. For example, if a bank were a “they,” it might be concerned with all of the intimate details of the hardship that caused you to stop making your mortgage payments. But in reality, the bank primarily looks at your financial information to see if you fit into any of its programs

that might lead to a loan modification or a short sale. You are much better off thinking of your lender as a machine — a computer that can offer you a solution only if you provide the necessary information in exactly the way it asks for it.

Keystone larger than it looks The Keystone is much larger than it looks from the front. This two-level contemporary Craftsman bungalow offers nearly 3,000 square feet of living space. Tapered stone veneer twin-column supports, decorative gable accents and characteristic windows combine to create that nostalgic Craftsman look. It’s designed for construction on a lot that slopes down on the right and to the rear. Approximately a third of the indoor living area is in the daylight basement, which is invisible from the front. A window-bright vaulted great room sits at the core of the main floor, directly ahead of the wide foyer. Gathering spaces, formal and informal, fill the left wing, while a luxurious owners’ suite takes up most of the right wing. Double doors next to the foyer lead into an expansive room brightened by a bay window. This could be furnished as a parlor, den, home office, or whatever suits. It has a roomy storage closet. Flames in the seethrough fireplace can be enjoyed from the dining room, kitchen and nook as well as the great room. Kitchen features include a long, flush eating bar and roomy walk-in pantry, along with generous cupboard and counter space. Windows in front of the sink overlook a covered deck.
