A note from the SBAOR President

By Steve Ozab

Today’s Paint Brush

By Brian Johnson President of the Santa Barbara Association of REALTORS®

The Importance of the 1031 Exchange The tax-deferred exchange, as defined in Section 1031 of the Internal Revenue Code, offers Americans one of the last great opportunities to build wealth. Since 1921, the 1031 exchange has allowed a property owner to sell their investment property and defer the taxes that would normally be due upon that sale. Notice I said defer. This does not eliminate the taxes due. A 2015 study revealed that 88-percent of exchanged properties were later disposed of through a taxable sale and mostly with more tax collected than if the exchange had never happened. In order to fully qualify an owner must; (a) acquire “like kind” Replacement Property that will be held for investment or used productively in a trade or business, (b) purchase Replacement Property of equal or greater value, (c) reinvest all of the equity into the Replacement Property, and (d) obtain the same or greater debt on the Replacement Property. Debt may be replaced with additional cash, but cash equity cannot be replaced with additional debt. Additionally, the Exchanger may not receive cash or other benefits from the sale proceeds during the exchange. These exchanges are not a tool of super wealthy. Most 1031 exchange transactions are completed each year by mom and pop style investors. The 1031 exchange is beneficial for not only the property owner but also for local and state governments. The great majority of properties now swapped under the like-kind exchange would not be sold if tax were due. Rather, their owners would continue to sit on the property, and the growth opportunity for putting the investment to better use would be wasted with the government collecting little in extra revenue and missing increases in revenue from higher property tax payments.

Paint brushes have changed over the past decade. In fact, they’ve had to change. Why? Because paints have changed. Paints have become thicker with lower levels of evaporating pollutants. The higher level of solids, the thicker the paint’s viscosity. Stiffer bristles became necessary to hold paint and keep a brush’s shape. Today, you’ll see a stiffness rating on better brushes used by contractors and quality-conscious homeowners. A brush labeled “Stiff ” will work best for cutting in and painting straight lines with thicker coatings. Brushes will be labeled “Soft” will work with clear finishes and are great at “tipping off paint” after rolling to eliminate the stippled texture. Using the principle demonstrated in Goldilocks and the Three Bears, the most popular stiffness rating is Medium or Medium Stiff. These grades work for both cutting in, painting baseboards and molding, and smoothing out the stipple of a rolled surface. The shape of a brush gives you advantages, as well. When the bristles are cut at an angle, they offer control when brushing is overhead or lower than eye-level. They are also great at poking into corners. The vast majority of brushes we sell are angle sash brushes. Straight cut trim brushes excel when laying off continuous surfaces and are sometimes preferred for trim work. “Tipping off ” and “laying off ” are synonyms for the same thing. After paint is applied with a roller or brush, the final effect might benefit from very light brushing over the whole surface. What I mean by light brushing is the bristles barely touch the surface with very little pressure. We have a special brush we recommend for this process. It’s called a Syntox (synthetic + ox-hair). Genuine ox-hair is extremely fine and leaves a very smooth surface when lightly brushing an oilbased paint. The problem: Ox-hair bristles have a tendency to break off, leaving the painter the task of tweezering them off wet paint. The Syntox has tougher bristles. No tweezers needed and it works with water-based paints, too. Here are a few brands of better brushes: Arrowworthy, Corona, Elder & Jenks, Purdy, and Wooster. Just When You Thought a Sales Professional Couldn’t Make a Profound Difference… When I first started selling paint, the Purdy Brush Co. dominated independent paint stores because their lead salesman, Bob Elliot, crushed his competition on the West Coast by simply comparing the tip edge of his brand of brushes versus all others.The tip edge of a Purdy Brush was—and still IS--extremely straight with no wayward bristles to leave brush marks in paint. And, when it came to rollers, Bob would take a competitor’s roller from a dealer’s shelf and put it in the dealer’s hands and then give him a Purdy brand roller. He’d ask the dealer to squeeze them both and feel the difference in density. Soon enough, that dealer would be selling Bob’s brand. I know all this to be true because Bob ran these comparison tests for a 26-year-old paint store owner in Goleta in the late 70’s and, yes, he’s carried Purdy brushes and rollers ever since.

Section 1031 can benefit a variety of people in various socioeconomic and demographic groups. It is the ultimate equal opportunity tax code provision because it provides an efficient and effective means for individuals to grow their wealth. More importantly, it also assists and incentivizes large economic impact commercial real estate projects in underserved markets that can have a positive effect on low-income, minority, and inner-city neighborhoods.

HOA Homefront

Are There Surprises InYour CC&Rs?

VILL AGE PROPERTIES

CONGRATULATES PATRICIA GRIFFIN

By Kelly G. Richardson, Esq. CCAL

Among the association governing documents including articles of incorporation, recorded map or plan, bylaws, operating rules and covenants, conditions, and restrictions (“CC&Rs”), the CC&Rs document is arguably the most important. Here are eleven things about CC&Rs which might surprise you, before you read them. CC&Rs are: 1) Public documents. When filed with the County Registrar/Recorder (aka, “recorded”), CC&Rs become a public document and anyone can see a copy. 2) Bindingall owners. CC&Rs bind all owners, regardless of whether they read it, understood it, or received a full copy of it. As a recorded document, CC&Rs area “covenant running with the land,” meaning a legal commitment attaching to the land and therefore its owners. 3) Typically not reviewed until too late. Most buyers regard CC&Rs as boilerplate to be reviewed eventually. Even though they don’t sign it, buyers should read it as carefully as the purchase agreement. 4) Your covenants, not just the association’s. CC&Rs place rights and responsibilities on the association as well as upon each member. If a neighbor violates the covenants, you have the same right to deal with the problem. 5) Often distributed in draft or unrecorded format. “Official” CC&Rs will have a recording number from the County Recorder on each page. Associations often mistakenly distribute unrecorded copies originally received from the developer. Obtaining a copy of the official document is easy. 6) Normally enforced by courts, even if they seem unreasonable. The California Supreme Court ruled in 1994 that CC&Rs are presumed enforceable, with some narrow exceptions (such as if they contradict a law). 7) Often not written with your

HOA in mind. Original developer-supplied CC&Rs often are boilerplate with parts not applicable to the community. This is because the developer’s primary interest is to obtain quick approval from the Department of Real Estate to begin selling the homes. Many developer attorneys submit pre-approved form CC&Rs to the DRE, speeding processing of the application, but also resulting in a document, which is often sparse and ill-fitting to the unique aspects of the specific community. 8) Normally amended by vote of all members but amendable by the board in three circumstances: To remove illegal discriminatory language (Civil Code 4225(b)) or developer access rights for construction or marketing (Section 4230(b)), or to update CC&Rs old statute number references to the new Civil Code numbers in effect since 2014 (Section 4235). Such amendments must be approved in an open meeting and filed with the Recorder. 9) Sometimes called by other names, such as “maintenance agreement” or “declaration of trust,” for example. What is important is not the title but the fact it is recorded on all the properties in the association. 10) Sometimes expiring. In past times, developer attorneys would draft CC&Rs with expiration dates. Modern CC&Rs either have no expiration date or automatically renew. Do not let the CC&Rs expire if it states a termination date — renew and then amend that termination out of the document. 11) The glue holding your community together. As limits upon owner autonomy, CC&Rs can seem intrusive at times. These limits help to protect neighbors from unneighborly behavior and against properties detracting from the community. When neighbors paint their garage with purple zebra stripes, CC&Rs restrictions suddenly become more appreciated. To avoid CC&R surprises, read it.

Market Shift vs. Market Cycle? For anyone who has turned on the news, picked up a newspaper or spoken to a neighbor in the past nine months, the unprecedented level of real estate activity is now almost old news. Succinctly stated, we have been, and are still in, a strong seller’s market. As far as the definition: “In a sellers’ market there is more demand for homes than there is supply and it is buyers who have to be prepared for competition.” Is this a new normal “shift” in the market as we have known it vs. a somewhat familiar and predictable “market cycle”? One thing is clear, we cannot understate the impact of the pandemic as a stimulus for the surge of buyer desire. Selling real estate on our beautiful South Coast, we are familiar with the desire in the hearts of many to live here “some day”; the effects of Covid-19 on lifestyle has pushed that desire into action. With parents working at home, children studying online, the ability to live anywhere became a reality for many. After the initial Stay At Home mandate subsided, this sudden change in lifestyle helped spark a tidal wave of often frenzied buying. Months of Inventory In real estate statistical analysis, we often illustrate market momentum in terms of months of inventory. Months of inventory, often referred to as market velocity, shows the current pace of sales, by dividing the number of active listings by the number of properties in escrow, but not yet closed. This statistic is particularly useful in assessing current buyer confidence — whereas analyzing “sold” data reflects sales activity 45 to 60 days earlier. As a general rule of thumb, a market with less than three months of inventory is indicative of a strong sellers’ market.

E8

SANTA BARBARA NEWS-PRESS REAL ESTATE

Market-wide, from Carpinteria to Goleta, for houses and PUDs, and for all price ranges, we have a jaw-dropping 0.6 months of inventory! (A PUD is a unit within a planned unit development that “lives like a house” and is governed by a homeowners’ association.) Statistically this means that at the current pace of sales, assuming no new listings, it would take a little over two weeks to sell everything! From a practical standpoint, however, as the South Coast market comprises several micro-markets, geographically, as well as by price range, each sub-market will perform differently. What About Buyers? If you are ready and able to buy a new home in this challenging market; be prepared to have laser focus and seek help. Contact your Realtor who will advise and guide you through the process. By way of encouragement, I can share that over my thirty years selling real estate on the South Coast, across all markets, not one buyer has regretted buying that property on that day. Real estate is a long term investment, and buying a property on the Santa Barbara South Coast in particular can be a wonderful future investment. Here are a few tips. Yes, cash is king in today’s competitive market, however, if you need or want to finance part of the purchase price, make sure your financing is in order before you start looking for a home. Work closely with a lender who will advise you as to what he or she needs to issue a pre-approval letter when you are ready to make an offer on a home. A pre-approval letter is a stronger statement than a prequalification letter, and means that your cash reserves, credit history, etc. has already been verified by the bank and a loan is only subject to approval of the selected property. When it is time to write an offer, especially for a new listing, you will have to be ready to pay full price or more. To help the appeal of your offer, closely con-

sider what the seller might be looking for, such as length of escrow, move-out schedule, etc., and try to match those terms as best as possible. We are seeing “acceleration clauses” being used frequently in this competitive market; consult with your Realtor on this topic. I have seen where it can backfire for a buyer, so in my opinion, that strategy should only be used after careful consideration.

tiple Listing Service. The comparison year-over-year is far from ideal, however, because the real estate market was virtually stalled a year ago. (Going forward, we will need to apply an asterisk to the data for late spring/early summer 2020.) In the charts you can see where the number of pending sales for the month of April 2020 was understandably one third that of April 2021.

Goleta It is certainly not news to buyers seeking a home for under a million dollars, that this particular market segment is extremely competitive with properties selling immediately with multiple offers. You will note that Goleta’s median price is certainly up from a year ago, but not unrealistically so, in that there are few high-end properties in that geographic area.

Lack of Inventory Where are the homes? You can be the most prepared of any buyer, but with such a limited choice of homes on the market and not enough new listings to satisfy demand, what are your options? Here are a couple of ideas. So much attention is on what is new on the market that day, or that hour! Ask your Realtor about “Coming Soon” listings. These properties will not appear on Zillow or similar websites, and this is where working with an agent early on will give you an edge. Secondly, pay close attention to the “back on market” properties; that is where an existing escrow has fallen through. Although it may have sold with multiple offers initially, many of those prior buyers have moved on and the seller will be very motivated not to lose momentum. Thirdly, take a fresh look at those properties that did not sell right away ... yes there are some! As of this writing, there are currently 53 houses, condos and PUDs that have been for sale for at least 30 days and 42 that have been for sale for over 60 days. You may find a weary seller who may now be ready to negotiate very favorably.

Median Price The rise and fall of the median price over the years is one of the most commonly used bellwethers of the real estate market. We show here how although this statistic is generally a good indication of the health of the market and buyer confidence, it does not tell the whole story. What is the median price? It is defined as the midpoint in a grouping of sales, meaning half the sales in the group sold for more and half sold for less. The average price is usually avoided as it will be skewed when there is a strong uptick in high-end closings as we are seeing in today’s market.

Santa Barbara The median price for the general Santa Barbara area shows an increase of 38% over last year. Santa Barbara does have a significant percentage of higher-end homes in such neighborhoods as the Riviera, Upper East and ocean view areas of the Mesa. Many sales of those types of properties helped to fuel that statistical increase.

Let’s look at the numbers Attached are market snapshots for the end of April 2021 and April 2020, as reported through the Santa Barbara Mul-

Please be seated … statistically, the median price for April 2021 shows an increase of 49% from one year ago. You will notice that this is not the headline of the article, because, due to several factors, this is actually misleading and is not reflective of the general market. As noted above, the median price is artificially pulled up significantly when there is a surge in high-end closings. To illustrate, there were 51 closings in Montecito reported through the Multiple Listing Service in the first four months of 2021, priced over $5,000,000 — a 400+% increase in the number of sales over the same period a year ago, for that same price range. Let’s look closely at other neighborhoods.

If not the median .. where are prices today? For a very general rule of thumb, overlooking the anomalies in the stats for April 2020, due to the Covid lockdown, and the surge of the high-end in the past nine months, one might look at a solid 20+% increase in value of homes as compared to a year ago. Comparing this to a steady 67% increase that we had been seeing prior to the pandemic. How sustainable is that increase? The short answer is that it is not sustainable… we view annual increases of 5-6% as sustainable. We do not, however, anticipate a market crash in the short to mid-term. (Certainly a future plateauing of prices could be anticipated). There are too many supporting factors for South Coast real estate values today. These include an augmented level of buyer desire to live in our community, which shows no signs of abating; a minimal risk of future distressed sales due to sellers having equity

in their properties, coupled with very strict lending guidelines that have been at play for the past ten years. Condos Market-wide condos have shown an increase of 14% in median price year-overyear. This market segment provides entry level pricing for many first time buyers, however, we have seen a strong number of high-end condos in such communities as Bonnymede and Montecito Shores in Montecito. Interest rates Today’s mortgage rates are as low as 3%. These historic rates continue to allow buyers to secure low-cost money for years to come and close on their dream home, even in today’s appreciated market. As an illustration, at today’s rates, a one million dollar loan would cost approximately $4,600 per month; should interest rates increase by only one percent, that payment would jump to $5,200. More staggering is that at the higher interest rate, the borrower would pay over $200,000 more in interest over the life of the loan. (The information above is for illustration purposes only. Your actual rate, payment, and costs could be higher. Get an official Loan Estimate before choosing a loan.) Whether you are a buyer or a seller in today’s hard to navigate market, your Realtor is your best resource for success.

Here are 9 gardening trends to try! By Micah Walker It’s planting season, and gardeners are getting ready to stock up on greenery. From tiny urban gardens to rolling landscapes in the suburbs, here are nine hot trends, according to horticultural experts. NO SPACE? NO PROBLEM The biggest issue for most gardeners today figuring out how to tackle a small garden. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, about 80 percent of Americans live in urban areas, which leaves little to no room for outdoor greenery. According to the experts at plant supplier Proven Winners, consider opting for fastigate shrubs. Fastigate plants are those that grow with branches sloping upward, nearly parallel to the main stem. These plants save on space by growing upward instead of outward. According to Proven Winners, bushes and shrubs that fit the bill yet offer a splash of color and interest include Hibiscus purple pillar, Rose of Sharon, Japanese holly, or elderberry. CLIMATE CHANGE GARDENING Sue Townsend of the Society of Garden Designers said creating gardens that can deal with extreme temperature swings will be a key trend. The designer suggested that gardeners should have the right plants that fit the condition of the garden, store water and allow excess water to be collected then dissipated through the soil. Think plants labeled drought-tolerant, cold tolerant, etc.

E10

SAVE THE POLLINATORS Pollinators vital to keeping the world’s crops thriving are under major threat from disease, loss of habitat and other stressors. Gardeners are encouraged to grow plants that support pollinators, such as like Sonic Bloom reblooming weigela, singleflowered roses like Oso Easy Paprika and Oso Easy Urban Legend. LANDSCAPE FRIENDLY NATIVES Planting shrubs or trees that are native to a particular region or ecosystem can provide enhanced habitat for wildlife as well as natural beauty, said the Michigan State University Extension. In addition, native plants help the environment by reducing the amount of water used and less need for pesticides and fertilizers. For gardeners who do not want to take on too much work, natives can be low-maintenance. PERENNIAL POWER The Home Depot’s blog, the Garden Club, said a trend that started in Europe called the New Perennial Movement is making its way to the United States. The movement’s primary characteristic is “layers of perennials that evolve through the seasons.” BUILD A MEADOW Another space-saving tip for green thumbs is creating a meadow, which can be maintained from April to late November with little upkeep.

YELLOW FLOWERS RULE Use flowers such as yellow tulips, forsythia shrubs, daffodils, pansies, dandelions, marigolds, daylilies, black-eyed Susans, and daises to liven up their spaces. In addition, Proven Winners named its annual of the year to be sedum “Lemon Coral” due to its glowing yellow foliage. PATTERNS ARE BIG, TOO Variegated foliage, with different colors and patterns in its leaves, are hot this as well, according to Home Depot. Consider adding plants such as coleus, geraniums and begonias for variety. CRAZY PAVING, LOG WALLS Looking to landscape? Crazy paving — walkways using irregular patterns and sizes of stones — along with gabion walls and, charred timbers all are expected to be popular choices for gardens. Townsend also foresees a rise in porcelain paving since its non-slippery surface is useful for “shady areas and around swimming pools.” Bring a rustic element to the garden by installing log walls. “They can act as a feature wall, a boundary or a screen while providing a necessary habitat for insects and a wide range of wildlife,” said Samitier. She also predicts metals will be used in green spaces since it is a “versatile material.” Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.

SOFT WASHING

PRESERVING LIFESPAN

Soft washing is the alternative to pressure washing. We use water based, biodegradable solutions. They emulsify dirt and grime, break down insect nests and webs as well as kill mold, mildew, algae and bacteria. All while sanitizing the surface we are cleaning. Soft washing uses one-third the water of pressure washing, lasts four to six times longer, and doesn’t erode the surface like pressure washing often can.

• EXTENDS THE LIFE OF PAINT: Painted exteriors on your home can be damaged from the erosion that pressure washers cause, often gauging holes into and stripping paint off of your home. Soft Washing will gently remove ash, dirt, and debris without the damaging pressure of power washing, preserve the color and lifespan of your paint, prevent wood-rot, and wash away insects that damage your home. Soft Washing delivers all the aesthetics, longer lasting results, and preserves your home’s exterior. All while using biodegradable, low VOC, water based, good steward certified cleaning solutions!

ADDING HOME VALUE According to the National Association of Realtors, cleaning the homes exterior (for the home and driveway) can add anywhere from $10,000 to $15,000 to the value of your home, making pressure washing one of the most cost-effective and time-efficient cleaning techniques.

• HEALTH HOT SPOT - YOUR ROOF TOP PETRI DISH:

Mold, Mildew, Fugus, and Algae are all in the top 10 allergy irritants list, affect conditions like asthma and may cause severe allergies and many other health problems. These growths are commonly found on roofs, north facing exteriors, and around gutters. Mold and fungus are known culprits in Sick Building Syndrome, and one of the top environments looked for in a legionnaires disease outbreak. Our Soft Wash solution kills these spores using detergents recommended by the EPA and CDC, which also eliminates 99.9% of germs including Covid-19.

“High pressure washing systems are likely to damage asphalt roofing and should not be used on asphalt roofing for removing algae or for any other purpose.” — Asphalt Roofing Manufacturing Association Santa Barbara Soft Wash uses processes and roof cleaning solutions that are recommended by the ARMA so you can be reassured that your roof warranty is not voided.

• ROOTS ON YOUR ROOF: Lichen, algae and moss can shorten the life

KILLS MOLD, MILDEW, AND ALGAE The problem with high pressure washing is it only strips away the top of the algae bloom, and while it may temporarily remove discoloration, it leaves the root spores on the surface, often blasting them deeper, and allowing them to grow back thicker and healthier. Soft Washing penetrates to the root of the growth, eliminating the discoloration instantly while breaking the bond of the spores and achieving a 100% kill ratio.

of a roof significantly, void your roof warranty, and even lead to loss of insurance coverage. The growth produces acidic waste which decomposes the minerals of the shingle, and allows for more damaging lichen and moss with filament root systems to do serious damage. This process darkens your roof which makes the roof absorb more heat, further reducing the lifespan of the roof. Roof cleanings often pay for themselves through reduced cooling costs alone, and usually 5-10x thru the maintained lifespan of the roof.
