Visitors Share the Love with Local Economy How Tourism Works for the Islands

by Barbara Marrett San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau

National Travel & Tourism Week, May 4 – 12, champions the power of travel to enhance communities across the country by contributing to the local economy and overall quality of life. To put it more directly: Tourism Matters. It’s also the perfect timing to release figures from a recent study, “Washington State Travel Impacts & Visitor Volume” by Dean Runyan Associates. The San Juan Islands host an estimated 750,000 visitors a year, which, in turn, creates an annual infusion of $156.5 million into the local economy (2012 preliminary total). According to San Juan County data, lodging tax grew by 15.3% in 2012. Visitor spending in general grew by $13.9 million (representing 9.6% growth) from 2011, according to the Runyan study. More information on visitor impacts to the State of Washington can be found here: www. whytourismmatters.com. The theme for 2013’s National Tourism week is “The Travel Effect” and it’s responsible for creating jobs, stimulating business development, funding town and county projects, and enriching the culture and vibrancy of visitor destinations like the San Juan Islands. Think--great restaurants and activities. An estimated 1,850 jobs

were supported by tourism dollars last year in San Juan County. In fact, approximately one out of every eight people in the Islands is employed by tourist dependent businesses. The San Juan Islands Visitors Bureau is the county’s official destination marketing organization and represents over 330 island businesses supporting local history, culture and visitor education. Visitors here generated 2.7 million in local taxes; taxes that stayed in San Juan County to support local services and helped to reduce tax burdens for island residents. Lodging taxes paid by the visitor help fund our Chamber of Commerce visitor centers, destination marketing services, community theaters, historical museums, county parks, fairgrounds, festivals and events. Celebrate these treasures by visiting island museums, cultural centers, and historic sites during, History Lives Here: Heritage Month in the San Juan Islands, (www.visitsanjuans.com), in May. There is much to see and do here at home on a “staycation,” in May. Learn more about our tourism businesses and all of May’s events at www. visitsanjuans.com.

Even though foreclosure purchases are up nationwide in 2013, they are down from the peak in 2010. Last year, 30% of residential sales on San Juan Island in the first 4 months were distressed, so far this year it’s 22%

What Is Distressed Property? “Distressed property” is a blanket term for homes in foreclosure, short sale or that are REO (Real Estate Ownedby banks/lenders). All three scenarios may offer substantial savings, yet all include stipulations with regard to the contract and terms of purchase. When you buy this type of property, you are dealing with a financial institution instead of a private seller, so it usually takes more time to close. Be prepared for longer than normal delays when working with the bank or mortgage lender to come to a decision on an acceptable offer and closing date. Unfortunately, many distressed properties have more deferred maintenance and repair issues, but if you are willing to take the chance and be patient, a distressed property could pay off in terms of a lower purchase price. Additionally, most buyers of distressed properties see an increase in the value of their real estate within a short time of purchase. If you are interested and don’t mind the additional paperwork and requirements. Get an up-to-date list of local distressed properties at www.sanjuanreo.com
