Insurers treat damage from mudflows, landslides differently Homeowners can be covered for damage caused by a mudflow if they have a flood insurance policy, but that’s not the case if the losses are the result of a landslide or mudslide. DEAR MR. MYERS: I know that most types of damage caused by hurricanes and other “high winds” are covered by a standard homeowners insurance policy. But what about mudslides, like the ones that recently wiped out so many homes in Southern California? ANSWER: For better or worse (mostly worse), home insurers separate damage caused by Mother Nature in the wake of a major storm or flood into two distinct categories. The first is “mudflow,” which covers damages if the homeowner has purchased a separate flood insurance policy. The second is “landslide,” which is not covered by either a standard homeowners policy or even a supplemental flood-insurance plan. The key difference is that a mudflow typically is created after an unusually heavy storm, loosening nearby dirt and then swamping

About Real Estate


the older buyers I have known in the past wanted to “trade down” into much smaller properties, partly because their children had grown up and left to start families of their own. ANSWER: True, the vast majority of senior buyers in the past opted to move into much smaller properties than the one that they had sold. But a variety of factors are beginning to change that long tradition. A comprehensive survey of retirees by financial services giant Merrill Lynch and Age Wave, a

consulting firm that specializes in aging issues, found that a surprising 30 percent of them chose to buy a house that was larger than the one that they had just sold. The remainder purchased property that was equal in size or a bit smaller. The senior buyers who chose to upsize cited several reasons for their decision. With many Americans working later in life, some wanted extra space for a dedicated home office. Others needed more room to pursue their hobbies or to entertain friends. Still others, anx-

ious to stay physically fit as they grow older, needed a special area for their treadmill or other exercise equipment. Many older buyers who decide to buy a bigger home still have their adult offspring in mind. It’s no secret that a countless number of grown children are staying in their parents’ home longer before moving into a place of their own, or are moving back later to save money after graduating college, losing a job or changing their marital status. A larger home can accommodate such changing needs.

Horticulture tips for February Home Grown KEITH REED

develop will remain on the plant throughout the growing season. If you wait until spring growth has started and remove the tip of the leaf, the plant will look bad all season. Look closely before pruning and clip just above the growing point of the new

leaves. • Delay pruning for summer flowering shrubs such as crape myrtles and roses until they begin to break bud. This allows you to assess the winter damage so you can prune as needed instead of giving the plants a generic waist high

shearing. • Cool season vegetables like carrots, lettuce, peas, potatoes, and cabbage can be planted about mid-month. See Fact Sheet HLA-6004 Oklahoma Garden Planning Guide. Perennial garden crops such as strawberries, raspberries, black-

berries, asparagus and grapes should also be planted towards the end of the month. While blueberries and raspberries can be grown successfully in our area, Payne County is far from their ideal climate so you can expect some challenges.

Consider the following Tips for your February landscape. • If you have not been out in your yard recently, take a close look if you have an accumulation of leaves. Tall fescue lawns can deteriorate when these leaves become matted down. While it is not crucial to remove all the leaves, at least rake them around so the turfgrass can get some air and a bit of light. • February is the time to control those pesky winter weeds. Herbicide control is much more effective if an application can be made before explosive spring growth occurs. See OSU Fact Sheet HLA6601 Broadleaf Weed Control for Weeds in Oklahoma and Fact Sheet HLA-6421 Controlling Weeds in Home Lawns. As always, remember that all pesticides are only effective if used properly. Always follow label directions and do not hesitate to call the Payne County Extension office if you have questions

New real-estate survey offers helpful insight for buyers and sellers alike The Nation’s Housing Column KENNETH R. HARNEY the survey reported sales above or at the original asking price. So you’re probably more likely to write a successful below-list contract than you assume. What about sales incentives – the sort of financial goodies that sellers throw into the pot to sweeten the deal? Are they commonplace? You might think so, but statistically they are not. Barely 20 percent of sellers offered any sweeteners whatsoever, according to the survey. Typically they involved the seller paying for some of the buyer’s closing costs or fronting the premiums for home warranty insurance coverage. Another

concession: Sellers agreed to set aside money to remodel the kitchen or a bathroom to the buyer’s specifications. But overall, 80 percent of sellers opt to avoid concessions. If there needs to be a cost adjustment, presumably they prefer simply to subtract it from the price they’re asking. Sales contract contingencies are another key factor in your transaction. But here’s a surprise: Though they are boiler-plate standard in many local realty contracts, large numbers of final contracts end up with none. No language requiring the buyer to obtain a mortgage

commitment within a specified time, no requirement regarding appraisal, not a word about an inspection. Twenty-one percent of contracts covered in the survey were contingency-free. That’s an eye-opener because contingency clauses can be crucially important for buyers and sellers. Say you sign a contract on a home that looks great but has defects you missed -the roof is 10 years beyond its economic life, the plumbing is a disaster waiting to happen. Without an inspection clause, you may have no escape hatch out of the deal and no way to argue for a lower price. Most buyers and sellers are smart: 75 percent of all final contracts in-

clude at least one contingency clause; 55 percent require a home inspection (still surprisingly low); and 43 percent have mortgage contingencies. How about your prospects of going to settlement on time – or worse yet, having your sale blow up before or at closing? A few years ago, delays and cancellations were shockingly common, but in the latest survey things look much better. Seventy-one percent of sales settled on schedule in December, while 25 percent encountered delays but eventually went to closing. What caused the delays? Buyers’ inability to obtain the mortgage they wanted topped the list, accounting for 31 percent of all delays. Examples

WASHINGTON – They are gnawing questions that many homebuyers inevitably ponder: What are my chances of getting the house I’ve fallen in love with at a price I can afford, which happens to be well below what the seller is asking? What are the odds that pesky contract contingencies, such as mortgage financing or the appraisal, could jeopardize my good deal? Sellers have different concerns: What are the chances that I could actually get a higher price than what my cautious realty agent has persuaded me to offer? Might I have to throw in costly incentives to attract a buyer or – horrors – slash my price? A new survey of 4,283 members of the National Association of Realtors offers some valuable insights, no matter what side of the deal you’re on. Take pricing. Except in a handful of superheated markets where few houses are available for sale, the odds are strong that you as a buyer will be able to get the house you want for less than the list price.
