Number of Phoenix real estate agents grows Catherine Reagor Columnist Arizona Republic USA TODAY NETWORK

Selling homes in metro Phoenix is a popular career again, thanks to rising home prices and sales. More new names are popping up on Valley “for sale” signs, and real estate licensing classes are getting fuller. And then the career path got a little viral boost from Lauren Burnham, the fiancee of ABC’s The Bachelor, Scottsdale real estate agent Arie Luyendyk Jr. Burnham recently moved to Phoenix and tweeted out to her many followers that she’s working on getting her real estate license. Some have begun to worry that the jump in agents is a concerning sign that another housing

bust could be looming. But while the number of real estate agents in Arizona is on the rise, according to the Arizona Department of Real Estate, it’s not near boom — or event bust — levels. Is “every other person in the Valley in the process or have the Real Estate license? Reminds me of 2006 all over again,” said a recent tweet I received from @Andyaz77. It was in response to a column I wrote a few weeks ago about the possibility of home values rebounding to 2006 levels this month. Home prices are close to rebound levels, but the number of real estate agents is still below both the boom and crash. Now, there are about 73,500 real estate agents and brokers licensed in Arizona, according to the See REAGOR, Page 3R

department. That’s compares to 86,000 real estate agents and brokers during the peak in 2006, and about 80,000 at the bottom of the crash in late 2011. The top years for metro Phoenix home sales are 2005 and 2011. The boom drew a record number of speculators pumping up sales and prices. The crash drew many investors snatching up foreclosure homes for bargain prices. Veteran Phoenix real estate agent Bobby Lieb said people who become agents thinking it’s easy money will be disappointed.

“Getting a real estate license isn’t too difficult,� said Lieb, of HomeSmart Elite. “But just because people take classes and pass a test, doesn’t mean they will make money.� He said making money selling real estate in the Valley now is “hard work� and often a seven-day a week job. During the boom, easy money selling homes drew in many new agents who left other jobs. In 2005, I profiled a 25-year-old real Valley real estate agent who had been a teacher but had just got her license a few months before. She was doing multiple sales a day with investors. I watched her finalize one home sale on the trunk of her car after getting a rush appraisal. Lieb said those days are long gone,

and he doesn’t see them coming back. He advises new agents to find a mentor. Homes priced below $300,000 in the Valley are selling fast now, often on the first day they are listed if the house is in good shape and in a popular neighborhood. But agents have to work harder because of the growing competition. A buyer looking to pay $300,000 or less may get outbid or lose out to other buyers who make offers faster. There are plenty of investors willing to pay cash for houses in that price range so they can flip or turn them into rentals. David Meek, a Phoenix agent with Keller Williams Realty, said it’s typical now to show a client 30 or 40 homes if they are looking in that price range.

Analysis: HUD plan would raise rents for the poor by 20 percent Juliet Linderman and Larry Fenn ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHARLESTON, S.C. – Housing Secretary Ben Carson says his latest proposal to raise rents would mean a path toward self-sufficiency for millions of low-income households across the United States by pushing more people to find work. For Ebony Morris and her four small children, it could mean homelessness. Morris lives in Charleston, South Carolina, where most households receiving federal housing assistance would see their rent go up an average 26 percent, according to an analysis done by Center on Budget and Policy Priorities and provided exclusively to The Associated Press. But her increase would be nearly double that. Overall, the analysis shows that in the nation’s 100 largest metropolitan areas, low-income tenants — many of whom have jobs — would have to pay roughly 20 percent more each year for rent under the plan. That rent increase is about six times greater than the growth in average hourly earnings, putting the poorest workers at an increased risk of homelessness because wages simply haven’t kept pace with housing expenses. “I saw public housing as an option to get on my feet, to pay 30 percent of my income and get myself out of debt and eventually become a homeowner,� said

Morris, whose monthly rent would jump from $403 to $600. “But this would put us in a homeless state.� Roughly 4 million low-income households receiving HUD assistance would be affected by the proposal. HUD estimates that about 2 million would be affected immediately, while the other 2 million would see rent increases phased in after six years. The proposal, which needs congressional approval, is the latest attempt by the Trump administration to scale back the social safety net, under the belief that charging more for rent will prompt those receiving federal assistance to enter the workforce and earn more income. “It’s our attempt to give poor people a way out of poverty,� Carson said in a recent interview with Fox News. At an event in Detroit on Thursday, Carson said the proposal is the result of budget constraints. He said the plan could change based on funding for the agency, adding that HUD has already begun working with Congress. “The reason that we had to even consider rent increases is because we’re working with a specific budget,� Carson said. “And in order not to have to raise rents on the elderly and the disabled or to displace people who are already in programs, that was the only option.� “The original rent increases were to make sure we didn’t have to raise rents on elderly and disabled people,� Carson said. “Now we have some increased

funding, we’re not going to� have to, he said. The analysis shows that families would be disproportionately impacted. Of the 8.3 million people affected by the proposal, more than 3 million are children. That stands in stark contrast to Carson’s focus on children and education, which is woven into his memoirs and embedded in the very foundation of his namesake reading rooms tucked into elementary schools across the country. It also runs contrary to research, housing experts say. “There’s no evidence that raising rents causes people to work more,� said Will Fischer, a senior policy analyst at the policy center, which advocates for the poor. One rainy spring morning Morris tried to wrangle her rowdy children into a minivan as they chased each other in a circle in the yard, a small patch of grass in front of the red brick house she rents in a housing complex. She’d taken a rare day off work so she could attend a school orientation. Morris moved to Charleston three years ago from Summerville, South Carolina, to go to school. She’s since earned her associate’s degree in health science. She’s a full-time pediatric assistant, sometimes working 50 hours a week just to get by. Her children, ages 3, 4, 7 and 10, would be hit hardest by the rent increase, she said.

Buyer can withdraw offer before seller OKs it Name Here Columnist Newspaper Name USA TODAY NETWORK – REGION

Question: We made an offer in the evening on a home in Glendale. In our offer we said that the seller had 24 hours to accept our offer or our offer would be withdrawn. The next morning my husband found a much better home for the same price. Do we have to wait 24 hours to see if the seller of the first home will accept our offer? Answer: No. A buyer generally can withdraw an offer to purchase a home at any time prior to acceptance of the offer by the seller, even if the buyer had given the seller a specific time period to accept the offer. Note: If the seller of the first home wanted to have the entire 24 hours to decide whether to accept your offer, this seller could pay you a small amount, e.g., $100, that would require you to keep the offer open for the entire 24 hours.

US long-term mortgage rates fall ASSOCIATED PRESS

WASHINGTON – Long-term U.S. mortgage rates fell this week for the second straight week, providing a helpful jolt for potential home buyers. Last week’s decline followed weeks of increases that pushed long-term loan rates to their highest levels in seven years. Mortgage buyer Freddie Mac said Thursday the average rate on 30year, fixed-rate mortgages was 4.54 percent, down from 4.56 percent last week. The average benchmark rate has been running at its highest levels since 2011. By contrast, the 30-year rate averaged 3.89 percent a year ago.

Industrial-style: cement floors and exposed pipes Mid-century-modern: warm natural colors and eclectic furnishings Modern farmhouse: light-colored walls, shiplap and subway tile Penthouse-sleek: elegant and minimalist with plenty of large windows Or, you might decide to focus on a broader interpretation — choosing contemporary, modern or retro décor, Gerstser said. “Contemporary is the purest level of modern environments,” she said. “These spaces typically include streamlined lowprofile furniture, dramatic modern artwork and minimal but striking accessories.” Modern is a more mainstream trend, she said, that can combine contemporary and transitional furnishings, while retro provides “the best opportunity to blend modern and traditional elements.”

  Whichever look you favor, contrast may be key to maximizing visual impact, according to Susan Williams, a principal with WilliamsWaldron, a Phoenix-based firm that manages sales and marketing for The Enclave at Borgata condo community in Scottsdale. Indeed, contrasting paint, furniture and accessory colors can create a strong impression, Williams said. You should also think about texture, which is the perception of how materials look and feel. Contrasting textures include rough or bumpy versus smooth; looped or knotted versus satiny; and velvety versus grainy. “Think about placing two contrasting textures near each other,” Williams said, adding that for finishes, having different cabinets and countertops between a freestanding kitchen island and wall-mounted cabinets can make a huge impact.

  Waterfall ends on kitchen islands (where the side panels on an island feature a pattern that evokes running water) is a growing trend, Williams said. A spa-like feel in the master bath — by adding rain showerheads, multiple showerheads or water tiles — is also popular, she said. Glass doors on white, cream or light gray painted cabinets (with or without glaze) are on trend as well, Goodrich said, stating that “fabulous backsplash choices to customize the look of a kitchenâ€? are readily available.    It’s important to note that dramatic or bold design doesn’t preclude practicality, Gerster said. For example: “Many condo and townhome owners have pets and children,â€? she said. To accommodate their needs, her designs have included finishes such as built-in study spaces, dog-wash areas, deep window sills (“small animals love to look out the windowâ€?) and dog rooms with gates under staircases.




  A seemingly unlimited choice in light fixtures helps to create a unique space — especially in the kitchen, said Sue Goodrich, vice president of sales and marketing for Cachet Homes. Also in the kitchen: “Higher ceilings and taller upper cabinets help to create volume,â€? Goodrich said. “Large stainless-steel hoods make a great statement, too.â€? In the living area, an oversized piece of art can enliven the space in a dramatic way, Williams said, while you can add interest with wall trim as well, both Gerster and Goodrich point out. Crown molding, base molding or wall trim such as chair rails or wainscoting (panels applied to walls) “will feel upscale,â€? Gerster said. Goodrich agreed, remarking that crown molding and wainscoting “add a lot of character to a home.â€? Shiplap, reclaimed wood and wallpaper can customize small spaces and make them feel more exciting, Gerster said. “Porcelain floor tiles in light colors will make rooms feel spacious and upscale,â€? she said. “They’re available in wood-look planks, gray textures

Question: Is a notice from a

Editor’s note:

Ready to Go Smoke-Free?

landlord good if it is taped to my front door?

Readers who have non-emergency, general landlord-tenant, fair housing or multi-housing real estate questions can mail them to:

It has been three years since the AMA partnered with Maricopa County to launch its statewide smoke-free program for the apartment industry. The AMA offers: • Education to apartment owners, developers and managers regarding the dangers and health risks of smoking and the cost savings of going smoke-free • Assistance to help properties become smoke-free

Not Sure Where to Start? Checkout our website for more information: Attention residents, be sure to checkout Arizona Smoke-Free Living’s Housing Directory to find your next Smoke-Free community:

Answer: Generally no.

If the renter acknowledges receipt of the notice, then it is good. If the landlord desires notice to be good, the landlord must either; personally serve an occupant of the apartment who is (1) of suitable age (fourteen and older), (2) suitable discretion; and (3) actually lives in the apartment unit, or send the notice by certified mail (return receipt requested) which will typically add five days to the time when the notice becomes effective.

Keep kids safe in residential parking lots Rent Smart Courtney Gilstrap LeVinus Guest Columnist

Parking lots can be very dangerous. According to the National Safety Council, more than 50,000 crashes occur annually in parking lots and parking garages. With school out for the summer, kids are out and about. It’s extremely important to pay attention in community parking structures. Electronics can be very distracting. According to a poll conducted by the National Safety Council, 66 percent of people nationwide say they would make phone calls in parking lots. Additionally, 52 percent of people polled said they would use social media, 52 percent


would send texts and 63 percent would program their GPS in parking lots. If you decide to use your phone or program your GPS, be sure to do it in your car while parked. Once you are ready to navigate

through your community’s parking lot or garage, stay alert. Keep an eye out for strollers, small children and other pedestrians. Check the area thoroughly before pulling in or backing out of a parking spot. Stay alert

while driving through the parking lot or garage. Although you are in a familiar setting, it is still important to be cautious. Remember to use your turn signal when indicating which direction you plan to go, and anticipate the actions of the other drivers. Whether returning to our apartment home, or in a rush to leave the complex, sometimes we speed through the residential parking area. This is very dangerous. Kids can suddenly appear . This summer, be sure to leave a little earlier, go slow and pay attention to what is going on around you. The Arizona Multihousing Association is the statewide trade association for the apartment industry, representing more than 2,000 members in legislative, legal and regulatory matters.
