Traditional, with privacy

Duplex cottege

The Listing of the Week is a traditional home with 2010 roof and privacy fence on a cul-de-sac in northwest Oklahoma City’s Willow Creek Estates addition.

Each of the Rothbury’s two units looks like a single, charming Craftsman-style cottage. And in fact, each is. This is a duplex where only the garages share a common wall.

BOOMERS SEEK TO HELP SENIORS FIND RESOURCES TO AGE IN PLACE ‘Time off’ can benefit caregivers BY DYRINDA TYSON Special Correspondent

The people around Suzanne Broadbent’s table were professionals, but their stories of aging parents, not surprisingly, were extremely personal. Jack Werner’s father, who died about 20 years ago, had a series of fender-benders just backing out of his driveway. “It was like that old joke,” said Werner, a home inspector and engineer. “He’d say, ‘I back out of that driveway at the same time every day’ — like everyone is supposed to know that.” Homebuilders Kim and Kimmi Houston said they learned lessons hard and on the ground. “My mother was quite independent, and she did not give up,” Kimmi Houston said. “Broken hips, broken wrist, broken leg, all sorts of breaks throughout this whole thing, and she did not give up.” Her father-in-law, on the other hand, did start to coast. “So you really don’t know what you’re facing,” she said. “My mom was very meek, very quiet, like a mouse, but she was a fighter. And his dad was quite the opposite. He’d just sit in his chair and watch Westerns all day,” Kimmi Houston Kimmi Houston, a homebuilder and Realtor, and Jack Werner, commercial and residential inspector, look at stairs where a said. ramp would be more suitable for "aging in place" at a home in northwest Oklahoma City.

The overworked adage “it takes a village” doesn’t apply just to raising children. Many components go into helping people remain in their homes as they get older, said Oklahoma City home inspector and engineer Jack Werner. He ticked off his dream scenario: “We’ll send somebody by to cook meals for you once a day, or we’ll send somebody by to clean the house, or we’ll send somebody by to help you with your meds — all of those things are what make a good, healthy, safe lifestyle.” Entrusted Hearts, Baptist Village’s home-health care service, terms it a “constellation of services,” offering clients access to everything from skilled therapy to light housekeeping to simple companionship. “We like to call it personalized nonmedical services people often need,” said Carolyn Wells, Entrusted Heart’s marketing director. Such services can be a blessing for caretakers as well. “I think that’s the main thing people don’t foresee and don’t even see when you’re in it,” Werner said. “The caretakers just get beaten to death. And they get mean, and they get irritable, and they feel guilty. Respite care is a hugely important thing, to take a break and go shopping, to take the day off and bring someone in.” The Areawide Aging Agency offers a guide for seniors with a comprehensive list of services and agencies. The Survival Kit for Seniors is available through the agency office at 4101 Perimeter Center Drive, Suite 310, in Oklahoma City or by calling 942-8500 or 943-4344.

Some short sales may lead to fraud cases WASHINGTON — Are banks and distressed home sellers getting rooked on a massive scale in the booming short-sale arena, leaving hundreds of millions of dollars on the table for white-collar criminals? A comprehensive new study estimates they will lose more than $375 million this year alone when they sell undervalued houses to tag teams consisting of realty agents and investors. Worse yet, the trend appears to be growing at the rate of 25 percent a year. CoreLogic, a large real estate and mortgage data research firm headquartered in Santa Ana, Calif., studied 450,000 shortsale transactions across the country during the past two years, and offered these real-life examples of how lenders are losing big bucks: I A house in Kings Beach, Calif., was pur-


chased near the height of the boom in 2005 for $530,000. On Oct. 28, 2009, it was sold in a short sale — an arrangement in which the lender allows the delinquent owner to avoid foreclosure by selling to a third party — for $247,500 to an investment group. Later that same day, the investors resold the house to a non-investor purchaser for $375,000. This produced a quick $127,500 profit — a 52-percent gain for the investment group in a matter of hours. I A house in Gilbert, Ariz., sold for $400,000 in 2006. On March 2, 2010, it

was bought in a short sale by investors for $220,000 and resold the same day for $267,500 — a gain of $47,500. How do investors manage to turn such quick profits? Are they just super-sharp shoppers or is there something else going on? Law enforcement and banking industry experts say it’s frequently fraud, and it works like this: Local real estate agents partner with investor groups. The agent’s job is to spot borrowers in financial distress — usually people underwater on their mortgages. They persuade the homeowners to sell to investors in a short sale at a low price. Then they contact the bank with the investors’ short-sale offer. Meanwhile, the agent finds legitimate buyers who are willing to pay more for the property, but

the agent never presents their offers to the bank. To back up the investors’ lowball offer, the realty agent produces an appraisal or a “BPO” — a “broker price opinion” of the distressed home value that confirms the low valuation. The bank then sells to the investment group. After the closing, the investors sell the house to the legitimate purchasers at the higher price, and the realty agent and the investors split the profits. According to the CoreLogic study, 65 percent of short sales that are resold within six months for profits of 40 percent or higher are “suspicious” — with a significant possibility the lender accepted a low payoff. Most of these transactions go undetected by the banks being defrauded, but some lead to prosecutions and convictions. Though banks are the

primary victims in shortsale scams, homeowners can be hurt as well. When distressed owners are pressured to sell to investor groups for less than the highest offer available, they end up deeper in debt to the lender. In the majority of states where banks can pursue borrowers for mortgage balance deficiencies following a foreclosure or short sale, homeowners may be subject to debt collection actions by banks at the very time they can least afford it. But the bottom line here is that short-sale thievery is federal bank fraud. Realty agents and investors who participate in these schemes risk prison terms up to 30 years, big fines plus restitution of the funds they stole.

IN BRIEF ROCKING CHAIR REPAIR NEEDS LATEX PAINT Q. I have an antique rocking chair for a child covered in milk paint. I don’t want to remove the paint, but there are patches on the seat and arms where the paint has worn off and the wood is so rough, you can’t sit on the chair. How can I repair those patches to make the chair usable? I really am not concerned about matching the original paint. A. Furniture refinisher John S. Wilkie of Revere Refinishing in Norton (330-7158624 or http:// recommends smoothing the rough patches with 240-grit sandpaper. Then find a latex or acrylic paint that’s as close to the original color as possible, thin it with water to make an opaque wash and apply it to the worn areas. You won’t need a lot of paint, he said, so consider buying just a sample-size bottle of latex paint from a paint store or buy a small bottle of acrylic craft paint from a craft store.

Aging: Concept focuses on letting elderly live at home FROM PAGE 1F

Kimmi Houston’s mother died in 2004 and Kim Houston’s father in 2007, but millions of Americans wrestle with similar problems. Members of the baby boom generation — born between 1946 and 1964 — began turning 65 this year, and adults ages 65 and older made up almost 13 percent of the U.S. population in 2010, according to U.S. Census figures. With the group right behind them, those 45 to 64, comprising 26 percent, it’s not an issue going away any time soon. Many of those baby boomers are concerned about their parents as well as their own well-being, Werner said. “We get more and more calls (about aging parents),” said Werner, who owns A to Z Inspections in Oklahoma City. “That’s the first step. And then, ‘Would you provide ideas for improvements?’ ” That prompted Werner, along with the Houstons, to seek out training for Aging in Place certification through the National Association of Home Builders. All emerged as Certified Aging in Place Specialists, CAPS — Werner with extra credentials allowing him to teach. The designation is relatively new, but the idea behind it is not.

Aging in place “Occupational therapists have been talking about it for about five to 10 years,” said Anne Marie Grassman, a registered occupational therapist with OU Medical Center. The aging-in-place concept focuses on what it takes for people to live at home safely and comfortably as they get older. Certified Aging in Place training helps builders understand how to accommodate an older person’s changing needs. Broadbent’s Putnam

Heights home, originally retrofitted for her mother, provides a lesson in doing it gracefully. The front walkway gently slopes up to meet the front porch with no steps to trip over, and the doors inside feature lever handles instead of doorknobs — elegant but also easier on arthritic hands. Such touches can’t hurt when it comes time to sell a house, either. “If you can make it so that you can age in place, but it’s not obvious, your resale factor becomes a lot better and probably a lot less of a burden to the family,” Kimmi Houston said. But the effort involves more than structure. A variety of components are brought into play, Werner said, from community resources such as Meals on Wheels to health care providers to family members. Occupational therapists are vital to the effort, he said. Their home assessments help families draw up a battle plan. Those plans are going to vary from person to person, but some simple measures can help: installing railings near key areas such as the bathtub and along steps, replacing doorknobs with levered handles and removing floor rugs that can trip a person up. Shifting furniture around to open up space can help, too, critical if a wheelchair comes into play. “Just try to take a tour of your own house (in a wheelchair),” Kimmi Houston said. “It’s eye-opening.” Baby boomers themselves are also looking ahead for themselves, building and buying homes featuring wider doors and hallways, walk-in showers spiraling inward with no ledge to step over and levered plumbing fixtures. Werner said he’s seeing such features in homes being built for buyers over age 50. “We may never need it, but what’s wrong with a wider hallway?” he said.

Low rates could soon be gone, experts warn MCCLATCHY-TRIBUNE INFORMATION SERVICE

Mortgage rates are at historic lows, but that might not be the case much longer. Those holding out for a bargain or waiting to jump into the housing market for other reasons could be in for a rude awakening. “I don’t want to convince someone to buy a home who shouldn’t, but for those who can and who want to, I want them to get the message that they’re living on borrowed time when it comes to interest rates,” said housing consultant David Jarvis. Mortgage rates aren’t expected to spike tomorrow. But as the economy improves and if inflation begins to affect more segments of the economy,

“I don’t want to convince someone to buy a home who shouldn’t, but for those who can and who want to, I want them to get the message that they’re living on borrowed time when it comes to interest rates.” HOUSING CONSULTANT DAVID JARVIS

rates should start to tick up. How much is anyone’s guess. “The stronger the economy, typically the stronger interest rates are,” said Clifton Crabtree, CEO of Houston-based First Continental Mortgage, a mortgage banking firm. For buyers on a budget, mortgage rates are key. As rates rise, so does the cost to own a home. For example, the

monthly principal and interest payment on a $200,000 mortgage financed at 4.75 percent jumps nearly $300 with a 2.25 percentage point rate increase. Buyers either have to adjust their budgets or settle for a cheaper house. That becomes a difficult proposition, Jarvis said, because people typically raise their housing budgets once they start looking. “It’s not like suddenly I

can go out and make a higher payment because I’m already at the top,” said Jarvis, Houston director of Metrostudy. If mortgage rates were to

spike, the housing market could take a big hit as fewer consumers would be able to afford homes. “If interest rates went to 8 percent tomorrow, we’d see a big dip in sales,” said Jim Gaines, an economist with the Texas A&M Real Estate Center. But he doesn’t expect such a drastic leap. “If it goes up gradually, then the market has a chance to adjust and make allowances and understand what’s going on,” he said.

Rising rates could even stimulate sales. Many would-be buyers have stayed out of the housing market because they’re worried about their jobs or the overall economy. An uptick in rates could cause those buyers to jump back in for fear of rates going even higher. “It may go from a buyer’s to a seller’s market really quickly,” said Matt Chauvin, a real estate agent.






Rothbury is a duplex with singular charm Each of the Rothbury’s two units looks like a single, charming Craftsman-style cottage. And in fact, each is. This is a duplex where only the garages share a common wall. Each two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit is a mirror image of its opposite, so only one will be described. Two gables face the street. The lower one highlights the entry porch, which is supported by handsome wooden columns. The posts, in turn, are supported by larger, squared bases covered with lap siding. This porch is large enough for hanging an old-fashioned wooden swing, great for enjoying a warm, breezy afternoon. The upper gable has a steeper slope, but nicely echoes the gable below while accentuating the multipane windows on the second floor. A coat closet is just inside the door. Family gathering spaces are all on the ground floor. The living room up front flows seamlessly into the dining area,

which is open to the kitchen. A raised eating bar marks the juncture. Appliances are built into the galley kitchen. The dishwasher is next to a kitchen sink with a window in front of it, and the refrigerator is only a step or two away. Range and oven are on the opposite side of the room, as is a pantry. Laundry appliances are nearby, where they share space with the powder room. A covered patio is also at the rear, where it’s ideally located for enjoying meals outside. Each patio is well isolated from the other unit’s patio, so even outdoor meals can be private. Upstairs, wide rectangular window bays in the Rothbury’s bedrooms provide plenty of light and a feeling of expansiveness. For a review plan, including scaled floor plans, elevations, section and artist’s conception, send $25 to Associated Designs, 1100 Jacobs Drive, Eugene, OR, 97402. Please specify the Rothbury 60-016 and include a return address when ordering. For more information, call (800) 634-0123.

Lender Cornerstone Mortgage settles discrimination claim BY PURVA PATEL Houston Chronicle

HOUSTON — Cornerstone Mortgage has agreed to settle a federal complaint that it discriminated against home loan applicants on maternity leave, the Department of Housing and Urban Development said. The Houston-based lender agreed to pay one applicant $15,000 and set aside a $750,000 fund for others who may have similar claims against the company.

tential claimants about the fund. HUD brought the complaint under the Fair Housing Act and alleged that Cornerstone discriminated against women on maternity leave. The Fair Housing Act prohibits housing discrimination in sales, rental and lending based on a person’s race, sex or family.

HUD also said that it is citing Mortgage Guaranty Insurance Corp. of Milwaukee, alleging it denied a Pennsylvania family an application for mortgage insurance unless the wife returned to work from maternity leave.
