Buyer’s personal-offer letter can backfire
Stillwater NewsPress • Friday, May 17, 2019
Some agents tell their buyers to attach a heartfelt letter to their purchase offer, but others say that it can do more harm than good. DEAR MR. MYERS: The housing market in our area is still pretty strong. We made a full-price offer to buy a new house, but two similar offers have also been made. To bolster our chances of being the winning buyers, our realty agent suggests that we write a “personal offer letter” that explains a little about our family and how well we would take care of the seller’s home if our offer was accepted. Do you think that is truly necessary?

For example, if I make an offer to buy your house and write that I just can’t live without it, how likely will you be to pay for needed repairs, all the closing costs or make other concessions?

her late husband’s cremated ashes were, er, “planted” several years earlier. And finally, there is a growing number of legal issues involving personal-offer letters. They concern violations of the Federal Housing Act, which prohibits discrimination against race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status or national origin. For example, if a letter states something like “I’m a single mom,” or “We are recent immigrants seeking to live the American Dream,” sellers who reject the offer might open themselves up to a costly discrimination lawsuit even if the rejection was based
solely on a low offering price or other factors. Those are just a few reasons why many home sellers don’t care – or even read – a buyer’s personal offer letter unless they think it will strengthen their own bargaining leverage. *** REAL ESTATE TRIVIA: There were about 1.34 million licensed and practicing lawyers in the U.S. last year, the American Bar Association reports. That’s more than a 15% increase from a decade ago. *** DEAR DAVE: We signed a oneyear lease to rent a house in Febru-
ary, but now the owner has sold it and the new owner has sent us an eviction notice that states we must move out within 30 days. What can we do? ANSWER: First, take a deep breath. Then, call your local rent control board or similar agency for help. When one rental-property owner sells it to another, any lease that’s in place at the time of the transaction must be honored by the buyer unless the tenant (you) fails to pay rent or violates another term of the lease. You probably don’t have to worry about finding a new place until next year.

10 ways to make the most of shelves By Cathy Hobbs Tribune News Service
When most people think of shelves, perhaps kitchen and bathrooms come to mind, a ledge to merely temporarily place something in the course of a daily routine. Instead, consider using shelves
and shelving as a decorative area to help add interest and pizzazz. From metal to colors and even shelving of various lengths, here are some tips for how to incorporate shelves into your existing decor. 1. Consider untraditional elements such

as metal shelves, especially if you are seeking a modern and minimal look and feel. 2. Mix and match. Mixing shelves of different lengths and even colors can add interest. 3. Add elements such as framed

ful. 5. Consider black or white shelving, depending on your wall color. The contrast can act as an interesting design element. 6. Incorporate shelves in entertainment areas such as dining and living rooms
where shelves can display treasured mementos, family photos or memorabilia. 7. Consider using shelves on long walls as an alternative to traditional artwork. 8. Mix shelves with artwork. Often artwork can
help to create a sense of balance. 9. Consider placing shelves in a room that may need extra surfaces such as a child’s room or crafting space. 10. Place shelves in a useful area such as near an entry or mudroom.

New lawsuits raise question of who should pay homebuyer’s agent WASHINGTON – The long knives are out again for one of American real estate’s oldest and most controversial traditions: requiring home sellers to pay the agents who represent the buyers of their properties. A landmark suit filed in March alleged that the 1.3-million-member National Association of Realtors has conspired with local multiple listing services (MLSs) and with major realty brokerage companies to force sellers who list their homes on an MLS to pay a contractually specified percentage of the commissions to the broker/agent who brings in the ultimate buyer. Now two new & As s o c i a t e s class-action lawsuits REA LT Y have been filed with allegations along the
Stillwater NewsPress • Friday, May 17, 2019
Wick A &
The Nation’s Housing Column KENNETH R. HARNEY same lines. According to all the suits, an NAR rule prevents buyers from unilaterally altering the “split” stated in the listing contract. Say, for instance, you are a seller of a $500,000 home and agree at the listing to pay a total 5.5% commission, allocating 3% to the listing agent and 2.5% to the buyer’s agent. If the house sells for the full asking price of $500,000, that would mean the buyer’s agent would be due $12,500 at closing. If you thought this was more than you
wanted to pay you might not be happy about having to shell out the $12,500. Shouldn’t the buyer pay this fee? In March, the seller of a home in Shorewood, Minnesota, filed suit to challenge this NAR rule, arguing that, among other problems, this system of mandating compensation to the buyers’ agent raises total transaction costs. The rule “saddle[s] home sellers with a cost that would be borne by the buyer in a competitive market,” where buyers can opt to pay directly for
their agents’ services. The U.S. market’s total transaction costs tend to be much higher than in most other industrial economies. The original suit, which already ranks as the most significant antitrust litigation against Realtors in decades, is now pending in U.S. district court in Chicago, with NAR’s reply to the complaint expected shortly. The two most recent class actions, filed in April, have different plaintiffs than the original suit but have nearly identical allegations. They come with proposed giant classes of alleged victims who have sold and paid millions of dollars in commissions via major MLSs to buyers’ agents across the country. NAR, which is the largest lobby in
the real estate field, rejects the premises of the suits and pledges to fight them vigorously. The sheer costs for any single law firm to mount a credible antitrust case against a major lobby and the largest realty enterprises in the U.S. – plus no doubt the prospect of large payoffs and settlements – has apparently attracted the new actions. Sources tell me that it’s not unusual in wide-ranging cases like these for other law firms to jump in with nearly identical copy-cat filings. Defendants in all three include NAR along with the giants of the brokerage industry: Home Services of America, Keller Williams Realty Inc., Realogy Holdings Corp. and RE/ MAX Holdings Corp.
Realtors tell me that an adverse decision in the cases would produce transformative changes in homesale transactions nationwide. Some brokers say that it could create situations where first-time
and other cash-short buyers might not be able to afford to pay for their agents’ services – creating a whole new obstacle to home ownership. Ken Harney’s email address is Harneycolumn@gmail.com.

Bermudagrass is a marvelous turfgrass for lawns or athletic fields. It’s easy to establish, very tough, and has a tremendous ability to recover or repair itself from damage. The unique characteristics that allow it to do this have to do with its reproductive properties. It can reproduce from underground runners (rhizomes), above ground runners (stolons) and seed. Unfortunately, it is these same properties that make it such a difficult weed to control. Attempting to do this following organic principles adds another level of difficulty. Before getting into the details, please note this conversation is specific to bermudagrass. If you do not like the advice I’m offering below (it’s time-consuming hard work) and you search the internet for easier solutions, keep this in mind. Advice from other parts of the country where different turf species dominate is unlikely to be successful. There are no certified organic herbicides that will effectively kill well-established bermudagrass. The products currently on the market work by destroying the protective coating of the leaf surface causing it to wilt and die. This works well for small, immature weeds but they do little to harm the mature stolons or rhizomes of bermudagrass. This leaves you with

What do I need to know about air-conditioning refrigerant? By Paul F. P. Pogue Angie’s List
If your HVAC technician has ever told you that you have problems with your air conditioner’s refrigerant, you may have found yourself bewildered by a flurry of numbers, chemical names, environmental protocols, and deadlines. And no wonder – recent years have seen the nature of residential air-conditioning refrigerant change completely. While the changeover is nearly complete, owners of legacy systems will still be coping with the aftereffects for some years to come. Here’s a primer on how refrigerant has changed and how it affects you. THE ENVIRONMENTAL BACKGROUND
For many years, a common refrigerant known as R-22 was the dominant chemical used in residential air-conditioning units. (One well-known form of R-22 is Freon, although this is a specific brand name and not a generic term for it.) But R-22 contributes to ozone depletion, so under an international agreement known as the Montreal Protocol, the United States agreed to scale back production starting in 2004. By 2010, production of new air conditioning units charged with R-22 ceased, and by 2015, production of R-22 itself had dropped by 90 percent. By next year, it will no longer be produced at all. The most common alternative to R-22 is R-410a, a non-
ozone depleting refrigerant. However, it isn’t compatible with R-22 units, so you’ll have to invest in an entirely new system to use it. WHEN YOUR UNIT NEEDS TO BE RECHARGED Even though no new R-22 charged units have been produced in nearly a decade, many homes still include air conditioners that run on that refrigerant. But, homeowners who need to recharge their old R-22 units with new coolant often find themselves faced with sticker shock. Because R-22 is no longer produced and is getting harder to find, the material alone for a recharge can cost several hundred dollars. Incidentally, air-conditioning
