Escrow Out Loud San Francisco Real Estate Podcast

Escrow Out Loud San Francisco Real Estate Podcast

If you’re serious about understanding racism in California real estate, these podcasts are a great place to start.

Escrow Out Loud, the podcast about San Francisco real estate from co-founders Matt Fuller and Britton Jackson of Jackson Fuller Real Estate, has released a three-part podcast series that looks at racism in California Real Estate. Prop 14: The California Fair Housing Massacre of 1964, One Community Activist & Four REALTORS® Discuss Racism, and Real Estate Racism in 2021 with Nate Johnson are all available for immediate download on leading podcast apps and stores.

Episode 108, Prop 14: The California Fair Housing Massacre of 1964, features the first Black president of the San Francisco Association of Realtors, retired real estate broker Don Saunders. Together with Matt, he shines a light on the fair housing massacre of the 1963 Rumford Act by 1964’s state ballot initiative known as Proposition 14. Prop 14 was sponsored, written, and supported by the state trade association now known as the California Association of Realtors. The outcome of that election truly changed the course of American history in ways that affect us to this day.

Episode 109, One Community Activist & Four REALTORS® Discuss Racism, begins with a powerful statement from Dave Walsh, 2021 President of the California Association of Realtors. The panelists then discuss the progress, setbacks, and impacts of racism in the Bay Area. It’s a lively roundtable that tells a more complete story than you’ve likely heard about housing racism in the Bay Area. Yes, even in tree-hugging progressive San Francisco, we have a deep history of housing racism.

Episode 110, Real Estate Racism in 2021 with Nate Johnson, features fair-housing advocate and Realtor Nate Johnson of Red Key Realty in St. Louis. Nate joins Matt to talk about the dog-whistle of “bad neighborhoods,” what racism in real estate looks like in 2021, and what we can all do to increase our awareness and decrease our biases when confronting racism in real estate.

Now in its fifth season, Escrow Out Loud is available through Apple, Google, Spotify, and directly from jacksonfuller.com. It’s an educational, insightful, and humorous discussion about San Francisco real estate based on Matt and Britton’s decades of experience. “If you’re serious about understanding racism in California real estate, our 3-part podcast series is a great place to start,” says podcast co-host ands brokerage co-founder Matthew Fuller.

Matt Fuller and Britton Jackson are both noted for their contributions to the real estate industry and work along the innovative edge of what is possible in real estate. While TIC sales are no longer a focus of their business, they closed the first fractional TIC loan in San Francisco during the sale of a Noe Valley TIC share. Britton Jackson has been quoted in the New York Times, and Matt has appeared on local media as a frequent San Francisco real estate expert, including Fox KTVU-2 and NBC 5. Britton was the 2018 chair of the San Francisco Standard Forms Committee. Matt served as an elected Director from 2014 – 2019 for the San Francisco Association of Realtors, served as the SF Association of Realtors 2017 President, and was a Director for the California Association of Realtors from 2015 – 2019.

UK’s Property Investment Marketplace CrowdProperty Launches Independent Australia Division

Avatar

Published

on

Property investment marketplace CrowdProperty has reportedly launched its Australia-based division in order to support property development in the country.

David Ingram has been appointed as the Chief Executive for CrowdProperty’s business operations in Australia.

CrowdProperty has issued over £100 million in loans to UK-based property developers. As noted in the announcement, CrowdProperty Australia will be run as a separate or independent business unit (and won’t depend on CrowdProperty UK). The new venture reportedly has its own local investors and board of directors as well.

Mike Bristow, CrowdProperty UK CEO and CrowdProperty Australia board member, stated:

“The model that we have proven with great success in the UK is a perfect fit for the Australian market. We’re a company founded by people who have long experience developing property and working in the finance sector, built entirely around the customer.”

Ingram is notably the founder of Australia-based Fintech firm Split It. He will now be tasked with establishing a business that takes advantage of CrowdProperty UK’s technology stack and industry experience.

Ingram will be a part of a professional team including CrowdProperty CMO and Co-founder Ian Bell, COO and Director Tony Zulli. Ingram will also be working with Property Director Daniel He and Head of Marketing and Growth Jamie Millar.

Ingram remarked:

“We know that property developers can spend up to six months waiting to secure finance for a project, with lenders often changing the terms of the loan at the very last minute CrowdProperty can take that process down to a matter of a few weeks, with no hidden fees nor surprises that plague more traditional funding options. Our solution matches investor capital more directly to the developer using it to add value, enabling greater returns, meeting the major needs of both sides of the marketplace.”

As reported in March 2021, CrowdProperty had hired Rupert Lowe MRICS as Business Development Manager. Lowe joined alongside five other CrowdProperty appointments so far in 2021 and a total of 21 new appointments in the past 12 months since lockdown 1.0 began (as reported in March).

CrowdProperty stated, earlier this year, that significant growth in the team reflects strong origination, lending, and business growth through 2020, ever growing applications for property project finance. The investment platform says it is seeing over £250 million of funding applications received each month.

CapitalRise, the dedicated prime property investment platform, revealed on Thursday (May 13, 2021) that it has managed to return over £50 million to investors since launching its operations.

According to a release shared with Crowdfund Insider, CapitalRise provided “an average return of 9.2 percent per annum.” The platform offers individuals and institutions with investment opportunities into projects across Prime London, in locations such as Mayfair, Belgravia, Knightsbridge, Chelsea and Notting Hill, and in Prime Home Counties locations including Surrey, Hampshire and Oxford.

As mentioned in the announcement, ensuring an “excellent” experience for investors is at “the heart” or at the core of CapitalRise’s business model. The “highly” experienced team of professionals in finance, technology and the prime property market take “a responsible approach to lending, applying a meticulous selection process to funding applications, including thorough due diligence and strong credit underwriting, to provide investment opportunities in high quality prime property developments,” the release noted.

The CapitalRise team explains that they “carefully structure” their property loans in order to withstand “adverse” market conditions. The platform’s investments have “continued to perform despite the impact of the pandemic,” the announcement confirmed.

Despite the negative impact and challenges created due to the Coronavirus crisis, the CapitalRise team reports that their platform managed to keep offering “outstanding prime development investment opportunities to its investors.”

As noted in the release, “headline” opportunities included investment in “a super-prime development in Kensington Park Gardens, and an attractive office-to-residential conversion in Holborn, Central London.”

During 2021, CapitalRise continues to provide investors with new opportunities in prime London and the prime home counties, “alongside making significant redemptions.” The platform has reportedly returned more than £16 million to investors during the last 4 months of 2021.

The London prime property market has “proved especially resilient during the pandemic and is now forecast for growth in 2021 and beyond,” the announcement revealed.

Uma Rajah, CapitalRise CEO and co-founder, remarked:

“We’re delighted to achieve this milestone which is testament to the quality of our loans, the quality of the prime property developers we work with and the quality of our own team of finance and prime property experts. Our meticulous selection process and carefully structured loans have ensured our investors have been rewarded with attractive average returns of 9.2% p.a. on average with zero investment losses or investment defaults.”

St. Johns County Homeowners Discover They Are Eligible for Thousands…

“The response from the taxpayers was immediate,” said St. Johns County Property Appraiser, Eddie Creamer. “Within just two weeks following the mailing, our office granted exemptions to over 100 homeowners.”

Nearly 100 of St. Johns County homeowners have learned they are eligible for significant property tax exemptions that have previously gone unclaimed, following a proactive campaign undertaken by the office of St. Johns County Property Appraiser Eddie Creamer, in partnership with TrueRoll.io.

The new initiative, launched in March, sought to tackle a key component of equitable tax payment in St. Johns County: ensuring that local homeowners — including low income, senior and military communities — are not overpaying their property taxes.

“Florida has generous homeowner exemption statutes, but these statutes can be complicated to wade through. Many homeowners may not have the resources or access to know that they qualify, and I have a responsibility to those individuals,” said Creamer. “Through our partnership with TrueRoll, we’re proud to be the first county in the U.S. to use data science practices to proactively identify and notify homeowners who may be eligible for tax savings.”

Exemptions can help reduce the taxable value of an individual’s home. For example, if a home has a taxable value of $150,000 and the owner receives a $50,000 exemption, the homeowner is taxed as if the home is valued at $100,000. Common exemptions include: Homestead, Low-Income Senior, Low-Income Senior Long Term, Disabled Veteran, and Deployed Military.

After partnering with TrueRoll to search through data records, the Property Appraiser’s Office identified more than 1,900 homeowners who could be eligible for property tax exemptions. A customized postcard was mailed to each homeowner in mid-March, detailing the specific exemptions they may qualify for and how to apply. “The response from the taxpayers was immediate,” said Creamer. “Within just two weeks following the mailing, our office granted exemptions to over 100 homeowners.”

The St. Johns County Property Appraiser first partnered with TrueRoll in 2019 to find a sustainable way to identify properties that were improperly claiming exemptions and to identify taxpayers who may qualify but were not receiving the exemption. St. Johns County has 148,000 residential parcels and 70,000 homestead exempt parcels; using TrueRoll, a data-driven solution to maintain accurate tax rolls, Creamer’s office identified more than 900 properties with unqualified exemptions and collected nearly $1 million in back taxes and penalties.

“TrueRoll is dedicated to a fair and equitable process, so we’re thrilled that this progressive initiative with the St. Johns County Property Appraiser’s Office not only uncovered unqualified exemptions and helped recover lost tax revenue, but has likewise been successful in finding individuals who could greatly benefit from an exemption they qualify for but have not yet claimed,” said Tyler Masterson, CEO of TrueRoll.

###

TrueRoll empowers governments to proactively maintain accurate property tax rolls by identifying both unqualified and unclaimed homestead exemptions using thousands of focused data sources, data science, and workflow automation.

DuPont™ Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam Introduces New Formulation to Reduce…

“We are committed to the transition to more sustainable buildings, while ensuring our products continue to deliver the high level of performance our customers trust and expect,” said Amy Radka, retail marketing director, DuPont Performance Building Solutions.

In support of its commitment to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions while delivering sustainable innovation, DuPont (NYSE: DD) today announced a new standard for two-component polyurethane foams with the launch of the HFC-free Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam.

  • Increases Performance While Helping to Eliminate Use of HFCs
  • Significantly Reduces Global Warming Potential
  • Advances DuPont’s 2030 Sustainability Goals

Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam, available this month, offers customers an innovative solution with a significant global warming potential (GWP) reduction, while helping advance DuPont’s 2030 Sustainability Goals. This product is compliant with currently enacted, as well as draft, U.S. State Hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) and Canadian GWP regulations. It also delivers GHG reductions in support of the Paris Climate Agreement along a timeline that is more aggressive than the Kigali Amendment to the Montreal Protocol.

The newly enhanced, innovative line of spray foam solutions deliver a global warming potential (GWP) reduction of more than 99 percent as compared to current formulations. Froth-Pak™ contains no ozone depleting chemicals or HFCs while elevating the performance attributes professional contractors expect from the market-leading, low-pressure spray foam brand.

“We are committed to the transition to more sustainable buildings, while ensuring our products continue to deliver the high level of performance our customers trust and expect,” said Amy Radka, retail marketing director, DuPont Performance Building Solutions. “HFC-free Froth-Pak™ is a demonstration of our continued commitment to providing the market with products that address environmental challenges while meeting the needs of our customers. We’re committed to delivering better solutions that address climate change, drive the circular economy, deliver safer solutions and help communities thrive.”

This latest innovation from DuPont represents the next step forward in the evolution of the Froth-Pak™ brand, introduced more than 50 years ago. Froth-Pak™ is the all-in-one self-contained and easily portable low-pressure spray foam kit designed for professional contractors. These heavy-duty, two-component foams work quickly and efficiently to fill larger gaps and penetrations, providing thermal, air, and moisture management that contributes to operational building energy efficiency over the lifetime of buildings.

  • Proper air sealing and insulation with spray polyurethane foams such as Froth-Pak™, combined with HVAC systems, helps improve indoor air quality (IAQ), reducing air infiltration and the dust and allergens that come along with it.
  • By controlling moisture intrusion, Froth-Pak™ closed cell products can mitigate the effects of moisture damage in the form of rot, decay and mold, improving building resilience.
  • Properly installed sealing and insulation products such as Froth-Pak™ can save homeowners on average 30 percent on heating and cooling bills annually.
  • Compatible with other materials used to obtain LEED certification such as Styrofoam™ Brand Insulation, Froth-Pak™ Spray Foams quickly adhere to a variety of building materials and substrates.

In addition to the elimination of HFC blowing agents, Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam now has improved curing time, reduction in overspray with new patent-pending application nozzles, and further improved closed cell content. Froth-Pak™ is available in variety of options and sizes, including:

  • Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam Sealant – a two-component, quick-cure polyurethane foam that fills penetrations and cracks in rim joists, roof wall junctures and around pipes and ducts greater than 2″ and less than 4″ wide.
  • Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam Insulation – a Class A Fire Rated two-component, quick-cure polyurethane foam that fills cavities, penetrations and cracks in rim joists, roof wall junctures and around pipes and ducts up to 2” thick.

The Froth-Pak™ Spray Foam reformulation is part of DuPont’s ‘Acting on Climate’ goal to achieve a 30 percent GHG reduction in our operations over ten years and carbon neutrality by 2050. The reformulation implements our Integrated Energy Strategy to address all sources of GHG emissions, including efforts to create low-carbon industrial processes, source low-carbon and renewable energy, and reduce our overall energy use. One-hundred percent of the electricity used to make Froth-Pak™ comes from renewable energy sources. Through this continued leadership and investment in globally sustainable products using technology and innovation, we aim to build energy-efficient, resilient and durable homes in a rapidly changing world.
