Great Year for Land and Investment Property Group

STEVE CUTOUT
Lots of great happened this year including successfully moving to a new facility in Brea – Thanks Dennis Wilson for locating and negotiating.

Did not keep track of how many new members but certainly a bunch!

Many, many properties, services and wants included in the Have/Want sheets – Thanks Clarence Alvey!

Brenda and Dean Burnett of Coast to Coast Escrow provided the printing services, the holiday breakfast – and a lot more. Thanks folks!

John Lastelic and Dorothy Zinc of Haven Exchange provided the foundation support to keep everything going, moving Have/Want sheets (when necessary actually doing the updates), paying the bills and whatever was needed. Thanks to them!

Finally, our moderators: Kathy Clark, Manny Hernandez and Dennis Wilson kept the meetings on track. THANKS!

Hope you all have a very successful new year – see you on January 6th, 2016 – Steve Long, webmaster

Holiday Breakfast 2015

We had a great gathering of almost 30 Land and Investment Property Group members at Coco’s Baker Restaurant in Brea. Brenda & Dean Burnett of Coast to Coast Escrow provided everyone with a great breakfast – that is above and way beyond support for the group!

Dennis Wilson and John Lastelic organized everything and were able to get everyone’s haves and wants discussed while we were eating and still get out at a good time – including the gift exchange!

Thanks to all the great folks that make this group happen.

Everyone have a wonderful holiday season and a prosperous new year.

See you all at the January 6, 2016 meeting (no meeting on 23rd or 30th of December).

5 ADA Accessibility Myths from Hunter Kitchens, In: “Facility System Solutions”

Don’t let these common misconceptions trip you up.

If you’re like most business owners, when you think of the Americans with Disabilities Act, you think of employee-related buzzwords like “reasonable accommodations,” the “interactive process,” and whether workers can perform the “essential functions” of their jobs. It’s a major undertaking to educate management on these few phrases alone, but they actually pertain to only one of the five sections that comprise the ADA (specifically, Title I, which covers employment).

CMBS Article from NREI

Brent-Kenefick_jpgHere is a portion of an article from National Real Estate Investor Magazine discussing the role of CMBS or “Conduit” loan in the Apartment lending space.  We are seeing more and more transactions where the buyer of larger apartment complexes consider the advantages of CMBS financing over traditional financing thru banks and Fannie and Freddie.  CMBS is getting a little more aggressive but still underwriting is sound.  They are not allowing projected rents to be used to size the loan like they did prior to the market crash in 2008.
