As Summer Heat Rises, So Do REO Sales

first_imgHome / Daily Dose / As Summer Heat Rises, So Do REO Sales The Week Ahead: Nearing the Forbearance Exit 2 days ago  Print This Post Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Subscribe Editor’s Note: This feature originally appeared in the July issue of DS News, out now.For many people, summer evokes thoughts of long days and vacations, but for REO managers and servicers, the summer months are the prime selling season. You’ve heard the adage that warm weather creates a “buying season” for real estate, as families are eager to buy or relocate when school is out. In fact, according to the National Association of Realtors’ 2017 statistics, the months of May through August represented the highest real estate sales volumes of the year. An eye-popping 40 percent of existing home sales for 2017 occurred during this period.Because inventories are expected to remain at historic lows, and demand remains strong, the summer of 2018 may come to be known as the “extended summer.” The traditional high-volume sales season could easily extend to a 10-month window running from March through December. Bye-bye to the old selling summer months, hello extended summer!Early 2018 data from the National Association of Realtors is pointing to a strong seller’s market with inventory down by 7.2 percent over the previous year, supply numbers near 20-year lows, and median sales prices up by 5.8 percent to just over $250,000. In addition, activity from first-time homebuyers continues, representing 30 percent of existing home sales.As we look ahead to the extended selling season, expect to continue to see inventory, especially at lower price points, remain competitively constricted. This tight housing market leads homebuyers to move quickly on available properties and creates an opportunity for REO managers and servicers to sell their inventory in a shorter time frame. This demand for properties makes it essential that REO managers quickly convert assets to be sales-ready. The ability to effectively turn over a property will position REO asset managers for success.Preparing your Summer ChecklistSo, during an extended summer, where should REO managers focus their efforts? Below is an essential checklist for all servicers and REO managers to efficiently make assets sale-ready. By focusing on these critical solutions, assets will be well-positioned to compete for a quick sale.» Schedule repairs. Review the property closely for essential repairs and schedule estimates for all repairs that require a contractor. Over time, building a relationship with a reliable and trustworthy contractor who can address repairs quickly will save you time and get REO assets on the market more efficiently. If the property has outbuildings, remember to inspect them to ensure they are in good condition and are not a liability for the asset. » System check. After taking over management of a new property, inspect all systems to ensure they are operating correctly. Check for proper airflow, that the hot and cold water is flowing from every tap and drains are clear, and that all heating and cooling systems are working correctly. In humid areas, having a working air conditioner, dehumidifier, or fan system with strong airflow to help prevent wall sweating and mold is essential. When checking the air systems, it is also a great time to replace air filters. While you are in the basement, be sure that any existing sump pumps are operating correctly and that the area remains dry. Homebuyers are often leery of water stains so be sure to check skylights for condensation and proper insulation.» Make it appealing. First impressions matter and curb appeal plays a vital role in forming the potential buyer’s opinion of a property. A 2016 report from the National Association of Realtors points to lawn care as the No. 1 project that appeals to buyers. Impressively, basic lawn care also has an estimated return on investment of 303 percent when selling a home. How the property looks from the outside impacts perceptions of the value of the property. That said most lawns shouldn’t require expensive investments. With dry conditions in much of the country, it may be essential to plan extra watering sessions for the yard to keep it green and inviting through the late summer months. Inspect the external areas of the property, picking up debris, trimming low branches and pulling weeds, and taking note of and repairing any damage. Now is also the time to properly secure the yard, get the pool swim-ready, schedule additional lawn services, and clear gutters and downspouts, ensuring they are draining properly and distributing water away from the property.» Clean up. Nearly every REO property requires significant cleaning; so don’t let this item fall off your checklist. It’s hard for buyers—especially first time buyers—to look past cosmetics and see the potential in a property. If the property is dirty, potential buyers will have a hard time imagining themselves in the home. Give the property a thorough cleaning inside and out. Remove any debris, treat carpet stains, clean windows, and give the entire property a deep clean. While the cleaning crew is going room to room, have them make sure that every fixture has proper lighting to show off the newly cleaned rooms.» Cook up a sale. It is essential for REO managers to give the kitchen a little extra attention. The kitchen is the center of most homes and the area where significant value can be added. First, ensure all appliances are in working condition and remove those that are not working or can’t be quickly repaired. You don’t have to upgrade a kitchen for it to be ready for sale, but it should be cleaned from top to bottom. Thoroughly clean everything, including removing all debris, defrosting the refrigerator and turning it to the warmest setting, cleaning all appliances inside and outside, and vacuuming out all drawers.» Inspect for insects. No one wants their future home to come with unwanted guests. Properties that sit empty over the winter months, or that fall into disrepair, are prime candidates for pest issues. Give the property a thorough inspection for any existing insect or rodent issues. Address any existing issues and check for new entry points for bugs, rodents or other wildlife. Address identified entry points immediately. Depending on the property and the location, it may be necessary to schedule regular exterminator appointments to keep the house pest free while it is waiting for a buyer.» Show off. You’ve done the work, and now it’s time to show it off! Take quality photos of the property and write a thorough and inviting description to accompany the listing. While great images can be taken with a cell phone these days, if you are not a strong photographer, this may be a valuable opportunity to bring in some additional help. Homebuyers are relying on the internet to get a preview of the property. Having great photography that displays a home’s strongest assets will help to bring potential buyers out for a showing. Once those potential buyers are on-site, your hard work to prepare the property will pay off.As an REO manager, it’s essential to take advantage of this favorable market and differentiate yourself from competitors by positioning your properties for a quick sale. Small fixes can make a big difference, so it’s essential to view a property through the buyer’s eyes. The best way to consistently deliver for your clients is to be systematic in your approach, thorough in your execution and selective with where you choose to invest money. The metaphorical extended summer won’t last, as the industry will one day find equilibrium with both supply and demand. But until that time, by following this checklist, REO managers will remain optimally prepared for the long selling season.

The petition alleges that Suresh Varade reached at the scene of the offence around 8:40 am and saw the deceased Kumud Naik and Anvay Naik both lying unconscious. However, he chose to wait to move Kumud Naik and Anvay Naik to the Civil Hospital, Alibag till the petitioner and her mother arrived around 2:30 pm, until then it was too late as they were declared dead upon arrival. Petition states-“Such critical time of more than 7 hours was wasted without any treatment for which no explanation is provided and clearly there was no attempt to revive the unconscious Kumud Naik or to revive the father of the petitioner Anvay Naik.”The petitioner has contended that by virtue of certain non-payments by certain clients of her father, there was under tremendous pressure for payment to his creditors and sometimes he (Anvay Naik) expressed his frustration of finishing his own life. He was then advised about meditation by the petitioner’s mother (Akshata Naik). According to the petitioner, on May 4, 2018 Anvay Naik left along with his mother Kumud Naik for Alibaug at their farm house in village Kawir, Taluka Alibaug, District Raigad for the settlement of certain business transactions. Then, on May 5, 2018 at around 9:15 am, petitioner received a call from Alibag calling them immediately to their farmhouse in village Kawir, Taluka Alibaug. They were told that Kumud Naik was in an unconscious state. Accordingly, petitioner and her mother left Mumbai and reached around 2:30 pm where they were informed that the petitioner’s father and grandmother had committed suicide. Allegations Against The Police And Previous IOAccording to the petitioner, prior to their arrival at the farm house, the officers of the Alibaug Police Station had already arrived at around 8:40 am and apparently moved Kumud Naik and Anvay Naik from their alleged original positions. Petitioner was told by officer Suresh Varade, that her grandmother was unconscious and then only after the arrival of the petitioner and her mother, both Anvay Naik and Kumud Naik were moved to the civil hospital Alibag. With regard to the investigation that followed, That after much reluctance and resistance to register FIR from SHO Alibaug Police Inspector. Suresh Varade, FIR was registered through the petitioner’s mother Akshata Anvay Naik as the informant in Alibaug police station. The investigation was done by him. Later IO Suresh Varade even tried to obtain the signature of informants on a certain statement stating that they had filed the FIR falsely and that it was a false allegation out or misconception. That there was no communication about the fate of the said FIR, the matter was followed by the petitioner’s mother till as late as March 2020 with the IO and even the Superintendent of Police, Raigad, Anil Paraskar. Thereafter, petitioner posted her grievances in a post on social media and someone on behalf of the accused replied that the matter had already been closed by the competent court of law i.e. Ld. Chief Judicial Magistrate of Alibag. Prior to such a reply on twitter by the accused, neither the petitioner nor her mother was aware that any such closure had taken place in any court of law. Neither the officials of the respondents nor any court had informed the petitioner nor to her mother regarding this. The Petitioner’s advocate was told that the petitioner’s matter has been summarized and all the papers including original orders of the Lower Court were sent to Alibag Police Station. Accordingly, the advocate applied to the Dy SP Alibag, but the copies were delayed by the officers of the SP Alibaug, at all stages.On May 8, 2020 in the afternoon, petitioner’s mother got a threat call from an unknown number stating that if she does not stop then her photos will be hung besides her husband’s photo. Immediately the petitioner’s mother called and informed and lodged a complaint at Dadar Police Station. However Petitioner on the same day received another and more terrifying call in which the caller threatened that he will kill petitioner and her mother in four days if they pursue their fight against accused and threatened to take this as a warning and to stop what they were doing, else he will send people to kill the petitioner and her mother. The petitioner states that the said complaint had been downplayed by the Dadar Police Station, however after requesting the superior officers, protection has been provided to the Petitioner and her mother.The Petitioner learnt that an undated Final Report was presented to the CJM, Alibaug and Abate Summary was allowed by the order of the Court on February 21, 2019 and in her FIR, ‘A’ Summary report was filed before the same CJM, Alibaug, on April 16, 2019 and was allowed on April 16, 2019.The petitioner filed writ petition, immediately thereafter the State Ministry for Home Affairs, directed reinvestigation in the matter by the State CID. The petition states-“It is necessary to reinvestigate the matter because as per the medical record Dr. Ajay Ingle informed PI Alibag at 1545 hrs. that at 1510 hrs. Kumud Naik was brought dead at the hospital. It is also a record that the doctor had informed PI Alibag at 1550 hrs. that Anvay Naik been brought by relatives at 1515 hrs. However it is surprising that the two ADRs (Accidental Death Register) were registered much before Kumud Naik and Anvay Naik were pronounced dead by the doctor (Ajay Ingle).” Moreover, petitioner reiterated allegations against IO Varade-“PI Varade has mentioned in the Police Report filed u/s 173 CrPC that he had issued notice to the accused Arnab Goswami to remain present before him on 30th May 2018 at Alibag Police Station and if that be so then why the SP Raigad Anil Paraskar verbally asked PI Varade to go to Mumbai for interrogation of accused Arnab Goswami instead of calling the accused Arnab Goswami for his interrogation at Alibag Police Station as required by law as PI Varade had so issued notice u/s. 160 to accused Arnab Goswami calling him to Alibaug Police StationIt is necessary to reinvestigate the matter because Arnab Goswami was not arrested though his name was mentioned in the suicide note, which is considered as a dying declaration and accused Arnab Goswami was let off by just recording his statement in Mumbai giving him ample opportunity to influence the nature of the investigation.”Also, PI Varade mentioned in the police report filed u/s 173 CrPC, that he was transferred from Alibag Police Station to Traffic Branch and he continued to conduct the investigation and he has filed the police report from Traffic Branch. It needs to be found out, on whose direction he continued the investigation, even after he was transferred from Alibag Police Station on 13th June 2018 to Traffic Branch, petition states.Next Storylast_img read more

Fractal reconnection structures on the magnetopause

first_imgSimple laminar flow models of the magnetosheath plasma lead to predictions of large-scale reconnection structures on the dayside magnetopause. There is observational evidence from the ionosphere that such structures exist. However, in situ observations of the magnetosheath plasma near the magnetopause indicate that the fluid is highly disordered, with the magnetic field orientation in particular being extremely noisy. This raises the question of how coherent large-scale reconnection structures can be created and persist. This paper shows that, if the apparent noise in the magnetosheath field has the characteristics of fractal turbulence, large-scale structures can persist even when the apparent noise levels in the draped magnetic field are very large. Furthermore, the common observation of reconnection transients is naturally explained by this model.last_img read more

Undergraduate research

first_imgMore than 30 undergraduate students in the UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences competed in the third annual CAES Undergraduate Research Symposium on Thursday, April 17. The undergraduate research symposium highlights the research students completed this school year, and gives them the experience of presenting their work in a professional environment. “We are very excited to have this many students participating in undergraduate research. The quality of their work is excellent,” said Jean Bertrand, CAES assistant dean for academic affairs. “We hope this will encourage some of them to pursue graduate school and a research career. We need a lot of bright, young minds interested in solving problems related to producing food and protecting the environment.” This year’s winners in the oral presentation competition are — in order of first to fifth place — Holly Young, ag communication; Forrest Goodfellow, biological science; Elizabeth Carr, food science and technology; Amber R. Williams, animal science; and Jessica Guthrie, animal science. In the poster presentation competition, winners are — in order of first to fifth place — Buck Trible, entomology and ecology; Simone Lavani, animal science; Richard Evans, biological science; Charnae Ross, food science and technology; and Andrew Norton, food science and technology. Winners receive cash prizes ranging from $200 to $750. This year, dozens of CAES students completed an undergraduate research project. Faculty members, in disciplines ranging from food science to plant breeding, serve as mentors to undergraduate researchers. Three of the students participating in this year’s symposium started their research in high school through the CAES Young Scholars Program. The young scholars internship program allows high school students from across Georgia to work in a UGA research lab during their summer vacation. The students earn money, learn job responsibilities and most importantly, are introduced to the work of agricultural scientists. The goal of the internship program is to encourage outstanding high school students to pursue careers in science, and many of them do. Nakia Lee, a freshman from Dekalb County, started her research on the oxidation of beef during the program this summer, under Anand Mohan in the CAES Department of Food Science and Technology. Kelly Murray, a senior from Tifton, is performing research on how the introduction of guppies affects insect populations in streams. She started her research career doing a young scholars internship on UGA’s Tifton campus. She is now pursuing bachelor’s degrees in both ecology and entomology, working with researchers Marianne Shockely Cruz in entomology and Catharine Pringle in ecology. Ridwan Amin Mahbub, a biological science major from Athens, is working with Marin Talbot Brewer. He is researching genetic markers that can be used to identifying dormant fungus on blueberries. He started his research career during a young scholars internship at UGA Griffin campus. Other students who presented at the symposium include Tae-Young Lee, Taylor Childress Lee, Brandon Lord, Brigid Burns, Josh Caldwell, Dervin Junior Cunningham, Jacquelyn Dahling, Cody Gibbs, Caitlin Hodges, Rachel Hughes, Jeanette Jiricek, Jenn Kicklighter, Delaney Kolich, Yeon Lee, Daniel Isaac Rodriguez-Grandose, Tori Staples and Emily Vermillion.last_img read more
