If You Are NOT In Escrow By The End Of September, You Won't Close Any More By Year's End!

Years ago - probably about 29 Years Ago -- the 1st Broker I ever worked for said this.

At that time, he had been a Real Estate Broker for 34 years.  So, I took him at his word.  And, he has been correct ever since. Well, he passed away in 1993, the year I upgraded my license to Broker from Salesperson.

And, ever since those long gone days, a lot of what he advised has proven true.

And, since it is late September, "and I really should be back in school," (Thank You Rod Stewart!), it is getting very, very close to NOT closing another Escrow in 2020.

But, given everything that has happened this year, I still had a pretty good year real estate wise.

Yet, I do believe deep down, we are heading in the wrong direction and the economy is going to take a tremendous hit.

I guess the only thing to do is hunker down, brace yourself and ride out the storm as best you can.

AND, there will be another bunch of homes available post foreclosure in the next 12 months.

So, be prepared -- as the Boy Scout Slogan states!

Frozen Foreclosures are happenning!

Even though I do NOT list or sell Single family homes as a Commercial Real Estate Broker, I do follow and occasionally buy homes for my own sake.

And with the economy headed into the toilet, again. (Thank You Donald Trump!)
I have heard that there are thousands of homes in pre-foreclosure. This means the home owner hasn't made any mortgage payments for months. Thus, here is one explanation:

The temporary freeze on foreclosures applies to Fannie- or Freddie-backed, single-family mortgages only. The pause on evictions applies only to tenants who live in properties that have been acquired by Freddie or Fannie through foreclosure. It does not apply to tenants in homes that have not been foreclosed on.Aug. 27, 2020

So, with homes about to be foreclosed upon; and the amount of homes already foreclosed but still being occupied by the owner or tenant, we are going to see, probably at the beginning of the new year, another tsunami of homes for sale via foreclosure or portfolio sales just as we saw in 2009.

So, if you are a home investor, kind of like me, you are going to see another opportunity like in 2009, to acquire rental properties on the cheap.

Since I was looking to buy another rental property this summer, the wife and I decided to hold off to see just where prices were headed.


I think down.

Nothing like Heading Full Throttle Right into an Economic Depression

I am predicting economic disaster coming our way full throttle in the coming New Year of 2021.

To me, what Donald Trump and the Republicans have done with their Tax Cuts, is going to leave us hanging and will result in a large economic collapse than we had in late 2008 and early 2009.

Am I being pessimistic?
Yes!

Will many people be losing their homes again?
Yes!

Was Donald Trump the wrong person to be President?
Yes!

And, his lack of leadership during this pandemic, has only fueled the fire.

I am guessing it will take more than a year to recover from such a devastating result of his incompetence!

Disagree?
Ok!

It's Time to Acquire a Downtown Las Vegas Apartment Building

With the way everything is going, and with Downtown Las Vegas in need of housing, here is an opportunity for a small investor to make some money.

OK, you could make a lot of money, but you have to be patient. (If you are NOT patient, you won't make any money.)

a 42 unit apartment building, that had a fire, will begin renovation at the end of September, 2020.  The contractor says it will take him six to nine months to repair, renovate and improve the fire damaged building.

The Alpine Motel Apartments

That's right!  The Alpine Studio Apartment building is ripe with profit!  IF you make an offer now, let it sit in escrow while being repaired, then close upon it's completion.

And, if you wait too long, once fully occupied at +/-$900 per month per unit, the market value of this apartment building becomes +/-$4.2 million or more!  (That would be your loss!)

Now, right now, you could put this property in escrow at $3.3 Million, wait for the construction to be completed, then close before leasing.  And the Close of Escrow could be contingent upon the City of Las Vegas approving residents occupying the building once again.

Questions?

Two to Go!

Of the 21 listings I had, I still have 2 remaining.

The Owner of these properties wants way too much money for three of his plex properties.

And, he did overturn a rock to find a local agent who said he could get him his price.
The plex properties are is such dire straits that he will have to sell at Value Add pricing.  But, since he's stubborn and thinks they are worth retail, he bought the whole sleazy agent spiel of how he can get him his price. (Not going to happen.)

The Owner will be back in due course, since I am: "The only broker who's ever told him the truth!" (His words.)

However, I still have his motel and studio apartments listed and hopefully, with the activity I am receiving, will get these into escrow fast.

We'll see.

At $1.5 Million for a 30 unit motel with a manager's quarters, that should be the first to sell.

Starlite Motel
And, at $3.3 Million for a rebuilt 42 unit studio apartment building, that should sell quickly, too!
(I am NOT surprised that a lot of developers are offering low ball pricing for it.  But, they know that once the rebuild is complete, it will be worth more.)

Alpine Motel Apartments
If you are considering Las Vegas as a spot for your real estate investment dollars...

SUBPOENA'd!

It took nearly 30 years to finally be Subpoena'd as a witness in a case on a listing of mine.

Now, I wasn't trying to get subpoena'd.  It just happened because I was the Listing Broker for the Alpine Motel Apartments when a tenant used his studio apartment stove to heat his unit last December 21, 2019.

Aerial of Alpine Motel Apartments

Yes.  Six persons died that day from smoke inhalation.
And numerous persons received injuries while escaping the smoke filled building.

Now, next Tuesday, I have been subpoena'd to appear as a witness.  Since I am on the Owner's side, I am going to tell the truth, and nothing but the truth.

So, I will be okay.

Now, if interested in this or any other Las Vegas property (other than residential homes, etc.)...

Unlicensed Real Estate Broker-Agents

Every so often, I will get a call from a "Broker-Agent" who has a client who is looking for some form of real estate product.

After discussing the situation with them about their client, I've gotten into the habit of asking these "Broker-Agents" their licensing status.

And, most will claim an affiliation with some brokerage or an attachment with someone who is licensed
(which is illegal) and they will be the "Broker-Agent" representing the Buyer in the deal.
Still Illegal!

Since these "Broker-Agents" usually are slick, and they attempt to oversell a property to a meaningful potential Buyer, the deal usually doesn't go through.

And, recently, I've run into this scenario but this time the well qualified Buyer didn't show up, but the "Broker-Agent" did with his licensed Agents in tow,

To me, I have never been that desperate to close a transaction that I would need to be involved as a licensed Broker in something like this to earn a commission.

Through my 29 years working in real estate, I would from time to time run into a Buyer who would want the Procuring Fee (or part of the Procuring Fee).  Also Illegal!

But, I'd rather lose that transaction than be beholden to them because once you do it, you then are on their hook!  I don't think it is worth it just to make money.

Dealing with an Inexperienced 'Know-It-All' Real Estate Agent

First: I will survive a 30 day All Cash Real Estate Escrow.  (That's a fact!)

Second: I am NOT sure I will ever recover from this "New" Agent's idiocy!

He works for a local real estate company that has had a nice success rate.  I'm sure there are agents there that are competent and worthy for anyone to work with.

But, on this particular transaction, this agent has tried his best -- in my opinion -- to get my client/friend to remove me so he can be the only agent in the deal.

Why?

I don't know -- 3rd Base!



Yes!  That's how confusing this has become, and we are still NOT in an Open Escrow, yet!

Here's the background:
On Sunday just past, I receive a call from a Buyer.  He saw my plex properties on a listing service.
And, it turns out, he wants to buy two of them!  Okay.

After discussing the price points, the Buyer wanted to think about it.

A day or so later, my client/friend says he is thinking of listing the two most horrible looking, lack of curb appeal, cost ridden plex properties with someone on the Multiple Listing Service. (I am NOT a Realtor and I have found as a CRE Broker, the Multiple Listing Service is great for homes -- lousy for commercial buildings)
To me that's okay because the Seller's price is retail, and the Buyer's prices have all been wholesale. (He won't accept wholesale and I thought I would just cut my losses.)

Anyway, the buyer then disappears for a few days, then I get a Realtor form offer from this agent for that particular Buyer.  A sleazy move on the Buyer;s part, but okay.

The one offer is for two properties (which the seller owns under two different entities); and, they are low ball prices.

Turns out, the buyer called me, got first hand information on the properties, then went back to the agent to write the offer.

At First I am offended, but Hey, "It's Real Estate," said Mike Sitren.

Anyway, turns out this agent does have a lot of listings, yet I have had other Buyers who worked with him in the past tell me he tried to do things they were uncomfortable with. (That's another story for later.)

Anyway, as I try to help him understand that there needs to be two offers, and I Counter his one offer for 2 properties with 2 offers for one property each, he starts to insult me, my forms, and boldface lies about regulations. (I doubled checked with the state on a few of his pronouncements that he was sure were illegal.  They are not, according to the NVRED.)

Now, I am wondering: Is my client/friend going to sign the 'new' offers (one for each property) that the agent (reluctantly) finally agreed to write? Time will tell.

After we (I am hopeful) close this transaction, I know I will be moving on to other deals already in process!

PS: In my near 29 year experience, sleazy agents will crash and burn sooner than later.
This agent needs to go sooner.

14 down, 7 to Go!

Sounds like a Football or Basketball score, doesn't it?

Out of the 21 properties I have had listed, I have been able to sell 14 of them!

Yes, I need to replace the Sold listings with other listings, but all in due course.

I listed a portfolio of 12 Single Family Homes (SFRs) including a townhouse and a condo.

I listed three motels.

I listed a portfolio of 6 Multifamily apartments.

I still have those remaining because they are extreme value added and the Seller wants his price.
(Still working an offer that might work, though.)

In the meantime, if interested in acquiring a Las Vegas property...

Luxor and Excalibur to be Demolished?

Never cared for the Luxor.

Even though you can see the top spot light illuminating the night sky from my house -- even on over case nights.
To be honest, I think I've only been inside in the life of the property maybe 6 times?

Excalibur was a place we stayed at with our kids in the 1990's before moving here.  We wanted to get a feel for the city during a Thanksgiving weekend. (That was a mistake!)

Anyway, it's a rumor these are to be turn down.

I Will Serve You With A Subpoena!

Wow!

Never thought I'd have to be subject to being subpoenaed.

But, when you are trying to market a downtrodden building, and a tenant causes the building to catch fire, I guess other Tenants consider that a violation of their rights?

This all stems from the fire, caused by a tenant using their stove to heat their studio apartment at the Alpine Motel Apartments!

Yes, I was the broker trying to sell the property As Is, Where Is.
But this plaintiff's attorney is fishing for information.

It is my understanding that you may have represented Mr. Orozco regarding a potential sale of the
Alpine Motel in August of 2019.  At the very least, I understand that you were the broker. 

Please forward to me all images, inspections, notes, contracts, agreements, emails regarding such.

Obviously, this is just an email and you do not have to respond. Unfortunately, because of COVID, I
cannot serve a subpoena at this time.  However, as of July 1, I can.  So, either you respond this
way, or, after July 1, I will serve you with a subpoena.  Your choice. 

At the very least, demand is hereby made that you take steps to preserve all emails, notes,
inspections, letters, agreements, communications, and images related to Mr. Orozco and/or the
Alpine Motel. 

Alpine Motel Apartments

Well, I am going to talk to my golf buddy attorney to see about this.

Most likely I will co-operate because I only have a few things he's asking for. Probably best to take the high road.

The Local Las Vegas Motel Market

With Resorts commanding top dollar, and some even falling back into foreclosure, the local Motel scene is alive!

The reason is, even though the Resorts were shut down, the local governments understood that local motels were essential to helping keep visitors to local residents open and happening.

Years ago, my wife and I decided that it was better for relative/out of town visitors to have some visitation freedom!  
You see: Las Vegas is a destination that some want to partake in as a complete stranger; and, they want to do what could be frowned upon in other (outside of Nevada) neighborhoods.

So, initially, we booked local motel rooms for them, but they soon got the hint.
(FYI: The wife & I for years would visit "them" and be offered accommodations in a relative's house.  But, we felt we needed 'more privacy.' So, we started booking stays at local motels when we visited them!)

Thus, we maintain privacy. and visitors maintain freedom to gamble until they drop without worrying about their hosts!
To us it is a Win-Win!

So, with local motels being necessary or essential, and the resorts shut down, my listings have generated a lot of interest.

Thus, the need for qualified motel persons to contact me asap while I still have two remaining.
(Another FYI: I am currently negotiating a potential sale on one of them.)

If interested in motel income....

The Economy Motel in Downtown Las Vegas is SOLD!

It took a while.

It was grueling to the end!

But the Seller is happy to get almost what he wanted for this property.

The Economy Motel

It would have Sold sooner for a cheaper price if the Buyer hadn't been so stupid!

YES! The previous Buyer stupidly canceled escrow the day before closing because he feared the US Travel Ban and the COVID19 virus was going to have an adverse effect on his property ownership.

Neither was a reason to cancel.  Thus, his $250,000 Earnest Money Deposit (EMD) was going to be forfeited if he hadn't stepped back up and made another deal.

Because of his actions, he had to pay a penalty.  You do know that if you cancel escrow (default), your EMD becomes nonrefundable and is released to the seller, right?
Especially, if you are scheduled to fund and closed the next day.

Some Buyers are just too dumb to realize they are NOT that smart.

So, The Economy Motel is in a new owners control.  We'll see just what happens to it in the next year or so.

Fontainebleau (Drew) is in Default AGAIN!

I hope everyone, by now, knows that the section of the "STRIP!" where the Fontainebleau (Drew) is located, is NOT a choice area!

Be Aware of Who is in your Audience!

Years ago, I learned, via a more experienced broker than I was at the time, ALL DEVELOPERS lie!

Now, a developer can come along and adamantly state: They never lie! Okay!  I believe they believe that's true.

But, in my 28.5 years of real estate experience, developers lie -- all the time.

Once, while at a event, a developer was giving his presentation on how to buy land to develop it.
Unfortunately, for him, he didn't realize several audience members were wealthy land owners.

I was sitting next to one and I did my best to keep my lips sealed and listen to the presenter's lies.  The land owner was doing likewise.

Anyway, this developer talked about how he's able to acquire land cheaply in order to have a greater profit post sale, development and leasing up of the development.

I had the feeling he thought all attendees there were want to be developers.  It never occurred to him that maybe a handful were actually Owners(?).

Anyway, after the developer's spiel was complete, and as we were exiting, the land owner I sat near, quietly said, "I would never, ever sell my land to that guy.  What a moron!  That guy doesn't realize that half the audience knows more than he does."

Now, the developer is/was a well known builder in the Las Vegas Valley at the time; the Land Owner still has more an 100 acres to his name.  And, Yes, he's developed much of his own property.  He buys, builds and leases out what he can get accomplished in the area where his land is located. Needless to say, he makes a great living.

Moral of the Story: Know your audience!

It's Real Estate!

Yesterday, while showing one of the Motels I have for sale here in Las Vegas, I was talking to the Buyer/Investor about the Pandemic.

Our discussion centered around rental properties and how they make you money over time.

The Investor said he had given up on stocks via the Stock Market because they always lost money.
(I told him about my theory that the Stock Market is nothing more than legalize gambling.  He thought about it for a second and agreed.)

Anyway, he sticks to just real estate now, because he said even though he doesn't make as much money as he thought when sells a real estate property; he said if he holds them for a while, and rents them out, when he does sell, he's never lost money.

He said the trick is to buy with as little of a loan as possible.  Cash is better, of course!

Thus, I remarked that, that is what I have found.  I own rental property and over time the value, rents and aggravation all grow, but in the end, I have always sold for more than I paid for them.

And, if you buy correctly, that limits your downside when selling.

That made me think of when I first entered real estate under Mike Sitren, way back in 1991.
We sold HUD OWNED Homes, originated the loans to financed the buyers purchase and made money both ways!

Now, almost 30 years on, I am just selling CRE and working the rental properties as needed.
It always reminds me of Mike saying when things go rough during a real estate transaction: "It's Real Estate!"

And with this pandemic running rampantly through our lives, if you don't settle down and ride it out, the only real estate in your future, will be a grave plot.

My apologies for end on such a sour note, but if you have an interest in Las Vegas CRE...

"You Need To Pay My Broker!"

Developers!

All of the Developers I have worked with throughout my near 30 year Real Estate Career have always been the same: Greedy!

Recently, I have been going back and forth with a S Cal Developer, who used to be licensed as a real estate agent in California, who is now searching for Las Vegas houses (to buy and flip).

Fortunately, I have a seller client who will sell his rental houses in a portfolio all cash.

After going back and forth with the Developer, and settling on the price and terms, the developer then throws in that I have to split the procuring commission with his "broker!"

What?

Apparently, this Developer wants half the procuring commission and he found a local agent -- who I know - who is wiling to pay this unlicensed person half of the procuring fee just to have some business!


Is this sleazy?

YES!

First, it never occurred to me that the "agent" actually would be willing to do this.  (He must be hard up for money.)
Second, why would an agent/broker even want to be inserted into any ongoing negotiation post the listing agent procuring the Buyer. (This doesn't make any sense.)
Lastly, this Developer never mentioned "his broker" until the terms of the deal were set and I was drafting the contract.

Now, the Seller does NOT need to sell! (It would be a different scenario if that was the case.) And, the original sales terms have been altered from the Seller's original terms and I have a feeling (knowing the Seller for as long as I have) he is most likely NOT going to accept.

We'll see what happens.

(My wife suggested I report this to the NV RED because I know that the Developer wants and probably will get half of the procuring fee IF I go along with his sleazy deed.

If you are searching for an honest CRE Broker...

Sleazy Real Estate Agents

Late last night, I received a call from a residential agent asking about one of my motel listings.

She and her husband are a Residential Real Estate Team here in Las Vegas.

Not surprised that a residential agent would call.  That happens a lot because residential agents think that selling a Commercial Real Estate (CRE) property will add to their mystic.  (It doesn't.)

Anyway, this morning, The "wife" emails me that they have a cash buyer interested in acquiring a small motel.  I have one listed.

I call the Owner's Property Manager (PM) and set up a tour.

As I was working on other "things," I suddenly get a text from the PM saying that a Buyer and agent are at the property asking questions.  (Now, PM and myself are the only ones authorized by the Owner to answer For Sale questions.)

Fortunately, the PM was at the motel in question and did answer property questions during the tour.
Then, they suddenly left.

In the meantime, I am calling the "wife" and asked what was going on?
She said their tour was ahead of schedule and thought just going to the property to walk around was okay. (It's NOT!)

I told her that, that was unacceptable and unprofessional behavior.  If she had been in real estate any length of time, she would know this.

FYI: If you make a schedule to tour a real estate property, and you are early, you call the listing agent to let them know you are early.  They didn't call.  I had to call them after the PM found them wandering the property and asked what they were doing?

So, if you have agents that are that lacking in management skills, you may NOT want to work with them.

The PM did say the Buyer acted as if he was offended by the condition of the property.  He's a bottom feeder and I am truly sick of them.

The property is Value Add and does need work and is priced for that reason.

More as the Corona virus, COVID-19, rampages through the US.

How to Screw up a Commercial Real Estate Escrow!

The corona-virus hasn't been the only thing effecting me the past 22 days.
(I am NOT infected by the virus! It has been one of many things going on around me that have had an effect on me -- like it has on so many others.)

With that said: the escrow that was canceled by the Buyer the day before Close, is still swarming around with accusations now by the Procuring Broker of being screwed; and accusations of me and the Seller screwing the Buyer, and these are from the Procuring Broker.

This accusation has become more nauseating than the Virus! (Okay, since I don't have the virus, this is an exaggeration.)

Let me explain: Recently, the Procuring Broker accused me of trying to "Sideline" his firm from any commission due to him because his client canceled escrow.

Essentially, he is accusing me of trying to screw him.

Potential Screw Job?
That's NOT true given that one of the partners in the Buying Entity is a local real estate agent who is with another firm.  That agent has made direct contact with me and continued to do so even after I told him to keep the procuring broker involved. (He didn't).

So, when I emailed this Partner, I also cc the broker and agent involved to keep them in the loop.

Yet, apparently, the Broker doesn't keep up with his email correspondence. (That's another story.)

Anyway, when a Buyer cancels an escrow the day before closing, it is a reminder that there are a lot of Buyers out there that lie.  This Buyer claimed to be qualified to buy ALL CASH, yet never had the money to close.  It also puts into focus his Proof of Funds that he presented claiming he had the ability to close. (What happened to it?)

My suspicion is, and has been, he was trying to "flip" the properties. And, his up escrow/sale canceled on him.  Now, he is trying to get his $275,000 EMD back which he is NOT entitled to per the Purchase Agreement he signed.

Since I do my best to be diligent and honest, if you are a Buyer who lies and pretends you are more than you are not, please do NOT contact me.

If you are a Buyer who is serious about acquiring a Nevada CRE Property...(and don't like screwing or being screwed)...but like being treated in an honest and forthright manner...
