The 80th Oregon Legislative Assembly will be putting forth Senate Bill 608 soon.  This bill applies a statewide rent control program in order to, primarily, restrict a landlord capacity to terminate a tenancy.  Based on SB 608's editor's summary,

"Prohibits landlord from terminating month-to-month tenancy without cause after 12 months of occupancy. Provides exception for certain tenancies on building or lot used by landlord as residence. Allows landlord to terminate tenancy with 90 days' written notice and payment of one month's rent under certain conditions. Exempts landlords managing four or fewer units from payment of one month's rent. Provides that fixed term tenancy becomes month-to-month tenancy upon ending date if not renewed or terminated. Allows landlord to not renew fixed term tenancy if tenant receives three lease violation warnings within 12 months during term and landlord gives 90 days' notice. Limits rent increases for residential tenancies to one per year. Limits maximum annual rent increase to seven percent above annual change in consumer price index. Requires Oregon Department of Administrative Services to publish maximum annual rent increase percentage. Declares emergency, effective on passage."

The Oregon Association of Realtors (OAR) foresee this to have unintended consequences that will negatively impact renters and the inventory of housing in Oregon.

State of Sundance Realty

New Agents:

Jay Grayson
took his time, researching various brokerages, and was attracted to the organization and fee structure of Sundance Realty.  His primary focus is on distressed properties and holds a Graduate, REALTORĀ® Institute (GRI) designation.

Lisa Jenkins decided that she wanted to come to Sundance Realty after talking with Arlen Pounds, another Sundance Realty agent. She has been the owner of CMS Homes since 2004 and became the sole owner in 2010 and she holds a license as a Manufactured Structure Dealer currently, selling used manufactured homes in parks. There have been many times when she has been able to get buyers financed, but cannot sell them a home, due to park rules. And there have also been times where buyers have had $100,000 in cash and still can't buy a home due to park restrictions, so she decided it was time to broaden her horizons and services.

Realtor Reviews:  The Importance of Getting Reviews

January 21, 2019
by Colin Marcum

How often do you reference reviews before you purchase a product or commission work for a service? Do you remember standing in a store aisle, looking at a multitude of options, and tried to assess whether the product was worth its price? Have you looked through Google for internet service providers in order to see which offered the most for the least cost to you? Finally, have you ever been turned off to a product or service due to either poor reviews or a lack of reviews altogether?

This article covers the importance of cultivating reviews...
