MC Companies and Move For Hunger Announce Collaborative Effort to Fight Hunger Nationwide

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- MC Companies - a leading Real Estate Investment and Management Company, and Move For Hunger - a national hunger relief non-profit organization, announced a new partnership that will fight hunger and reduce food waste nationwide. With estimates showing that the number of Americans facing hunger in 2020 increased by 46% due to the Covid-19 pandemic - that's 17 million more people - the collaborative efforts of MC Companies and Move For Hunger have never been more important than they are right now.

People throw away a lot of things when they move, including perfectly good food. Move For Hunger's network of more than 1,000 moving companies, more than 1,500 multifamily apartment communities, and many of the world's leading relocation management companies, volunteer to collect this unopened, non-perishable food and deliver it to their local food banks. To date, Move For Hunger's network of relocation professionals and multifamily properties has collected and delivered more than 20 million pounds of food - providing 17 million meals - to food banks and pantries across the United States and Canada.

The partnership will enable MC Companies to support Move For Hunger's food rescue programs and encourage their properties, associations, & vendors they work with to integrate the Move For Hunger model into the moving out process for residents. It will also provide the opportunity to continue to expand the Move For Hunger network: a robust community of engaged individuals that want to make a difference in the lives of others and have the resources available to create large scale change.

"Partnering with MC Companies both complements and advances our mission, so this collaboration was a natural fit," said Adam Lowy, Executive Director and Founder of Move For Hunger. "With such devastating hunger statistics all around the country, the support of MC Companies will help strengthen our efforts and allow us to provide meals to those struggling to put food on the table."

"The mission for MC Companies and our philanthropic arm the Sharing the Good Life Foundation is to improve the communities where we operate our Real Estate. The partnership with Move For Hunger gives us the opportunity to help provide meals to our communities in need," said Lesley Brice, President and Partner at MC Companies

Rates of household food insecurity are going to remain high for the foreseeable future. Food banks, pantries, and shelters are the only places millions of people can turn to for help. Through the support of partners like MC Companies, Move For Hunger and MC Companies are committed to doing their part to fight for the families, children, seniors, and vulnerable communities who lack reliable access to affordable, nutritious food.

Move For Hunger is a national non-profit organization that has created a sustainable way to reduce food waste and fight hunger. We have mobilized the leaders of moving, relocation, and multifamily industries to provide their customers, clients, and residents with the opportunity to donate their food when they move. Members of Move For Hunger also organize community food drives, participate in awareness campaigns, and create employee engagement programs.

MC Companies is a real estate investment, development, construction, and management company specializing in the multifamily properties and commercial markets.

OfferMarket Adds Auctions to Commission-Free Real Estate Marketplace

BALTIMORE, Md. -- Today, OfferMarket, a technology-enabled real estate marketplace announced the launch of OfferMarket Auctions. The company's real estate auction framework promotes buyer competition, reduces transaction costs and delivers faster closing times.

Traditional real estate transactions can be expensive, slow and frustrating for sellers. Sellers typically pay 5-6% commission to agents, spend an additional 1-5% on repairs and staging, and another 0-5% on inspection-related concessions. OfferMarket uses ecommerce marketplace principles and a streamlined, managed transaction flow (forms, titlework) to save money and time for buyers and sellers. Transactions on OfferMarket are as-is, and sellers avoid costly commissions and repairs.

OfferMarket receives a fixed service fee, typically $1,250 to $5,000, paid by the buyer at closing. A $250,000 house sold on OfferMarket would save at least $10,000 for the seller as compared to a traditional "on-market" transaction.

"It's amazing how much buyer competition we are generating and how much time and money we are saving the sellers who use our auction feature," says Daniel Sperling-Horowitz, CEO of OfferMarket. Sperling-Horowitz previously founded Zentail, an ecommerce marketplace software company backed by Y Combinator.

"With on-market housing inventory near record lows, buyers are increasingly looking off-market for their next purchase," added Sperling-Horowitz.

"I contacted OfferMarket with a bit of skepticism and very little expectation of selling my property but, within only 3 days, they had several prospective buyers inspecting the home. Very fortunately, one put in an offer which was [17% above] my asking price. From then on, their handling of the process was superb. We closed on the scheduled date. I would (and will) recommend them to anyone that I encounter who has a property to sell," said Tony Santaniello from Scranton, PA.

Developer Provides Update on Florence Project, Potentially Offering Massive Economic Impact to The Shoals

FLORENCE, Ala. -- After a year in the works, downtown Florence could face a new economic boom thanks to The Mandolin, a thriving residential, retail, and office development project Bobo Family Group has proposed for the heart of the city.

When Covid-19 hit, we had to hit pause, step back, and take a look at how things might be changing. We immediately knew that retail and hospitality were going to get hit, we just didn't know how long it would last. Thankfully, we've discovered that some retail sectors have become more resilient, with grocery being one of them.

"We've spent the last six months going back and forth with our architectural, engineering, and construction team to fine tune a project Shoal's residents say they want. It's involved a tremendous amount of time and thought. Now we know we can make this idea a reality if the City decides to make this type of development a priority."

The $45.5 million development will offer modern residential units, high-class office spaces, convenient parking and jobs, totaling over $100 million in proposed ongoing economic impact for the city. Since the initial reveal, developers have been in talks with a national grocery chain to create a large, ground-floor grocery experience with space for additional offices and retailers.

The Mandolin's primary purpose is to boost the local economy and offer resources that will aid in generating greater retention of recent University of North Alabama graduates, said CEO James Bobo.

The development is proposed to occupy the space between Tennessee Street, East Mobile Street, Walnut Street, and North Wood Avenue, across from Turbo Coffee and McDaniel Window and Door.

This much-needed resource for the Shoals area cannot happen without the public's help, though. "In order to attract, develop, and retain the jobs we need for our future, we need the types of developments that will attract and retain talented people," Bobo said. "We have to start thinking proactively as opposed to reactively."

Before this dream can come true for the Shoals, The Mandolin needs your help. Members of the community are encouraged to sign the petition on change.org to make this development a Florence City Council priority.

Omaha-Based Apartment Developers Complete Their First 1,000 Apartment Units

OMAHA, Neb. -- SB Communities, LLC, owned by Jerry Slusky and Bob Batt, is a privately-owned real estate development company known in Nebraska and Iowa for its focus on building new, first-class apartment communities since 2013, specializing in identifying Midwest communities with populations of around 50,000 where there is a particular need for amenity-filled apartments.

SB Communities, LLC fulfills this need and develops projects with resort-style pools, innovative clubhouses, full-size fitness facilities, and individual apartments with quartz island countertops, stainless steel appliances and washer/dryers as basic amenities. They have followed this model for the past seven years, and it has been a huge success.

The company has recently passed the milestone of completing one-thousand apartment units. Jerry and Bob put their decades of experience earned in real estate development and furniture sales and marketing to give SB Communities, LLC this extraordinary pace of growth.

Bob Batt grew up and went to college in Omaha. He retired from Nebraska Furniture Mart (now a Berkshire Hathaway subsidiary) after a long and successful career in marketing and executive leadership. He then joined with Jerry to create SB Communities, LLC.

Attorney Jerry Slusky has been in real estate law practice for over 45 years, most of which have been spent assisting clients in all aspects of the development of commercial real estate. Jerry is the Founder of the CRE Summit - an annual commercial real estate conference now in its 32nd consecutive year; he is also one of only seven Nebraska Fellows of the American College of Real Estate Lawyers (ACREL).

Some of the company's widely recognized projects include The Sterling Apartments of Grand Island, The Sterling Apartments of Kearney and The Sterling Apartments at Prairie Trail in Ankeny, Iowa.

Speaking about their recent achievement, Jerry said, "A thousand units is an important number. It demonstrates that we were right to invest in research and move forward with providing these communities the products they were missing. SB Communities, LLC provides a first-class apartment living experience that is more like a home, set in an amenity-filled community campus".

This achievement opens many new doors for SB Communities, LLC. Bob Batt is very optimistic about the future of the company. He says, "Mrs. B, Founder of the Nebraska Furniture Mart, often told me, 'It's not what you want. It's what the customer wants.' And that's true for this business as well! The transfer of business ideas and theory applies as we consider what the customer is wanting, not what we want."

SB Communities, LLC is also a partner in a joint venture in the development of 300 units in Papillion, NE, Axis Apartments, which opened its first two buildings last August. The company is also planning to break ground on a new 404-unit apartment community in the Prairie Trail subdivision of Ankeny, IA in May 2021.

COMPANY CONTACT INFORMATION

SB Communities, LLC is a Nebraska owned and operated company, focused on bringing outstanding, home-like rental apartments to Midwest living.

Choyce Peterson Publishes Year-End 2020 Lower Fairfield County Office Space Availability Poster

NORWALK, Conn. -- Choyce Peterson, Inc. (www.choycepeterson.com), a full service commercial real estate brokerage firm with a specialization in tenant representation, announced the release of its 22nd semi-annual Lower Fairfield County Office Space Availability Poster. While 2020 started with a high availability rate, it was widely expected that there would be a significant amount of available office space added to the market. This report shows otherwise as there was only a 2.0 percentage point increase in total availability, from 27.8% at Year-End 2019 to 29.8% at Year-End 2020.

The full-size poster depicts silhouettes of 96 buildings with a total inventory of 18.2 million square feet and tracks changes in office space availability from Year-End 2019 to Year-End 2020 in larger, primarily multi-tenanted Class A office buildings in Stamford, Norwalk, Greenwich, and Westport. The unique study illustrates the absorption and give back of direct and sublease space, as well as overall availability statistics.

The following refers to the poster's "availability rate" at Year End 2019 vs. Year End 2020 in each market surveyed:

* STAMFORD increased from 30.2 to 34.1%. Of the 31 buildings surveyed, 16 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 12 had an increase and 3 were unchanged. Three buildings added a staggering 570,000 square feet of available space: 1 Harbor Point Square (sublease space), 201 Tresser Blvd (Purdue Pharma building) and 301 Tresser Blvd (direct space).

* NORWALK increased from 32.5% to 34.6%. Of the 20 buildings surveyed, 6 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 8 had an increase and 6 were unchanged. 200 Connecticut Avenue and 535 Connecticut Avenue added the most space (94,222 square feet).

* GREENWICH decreased from 18.1% to 16.1%. Of the 25 buildings surveyed, 11 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 6 had an increase and 8 were unchanged. 1 American Lane and 100 West Putnam Avenue combined, decreased their availability by 46,003 square feet.

* WESTPORT, the strongest of the four markets, decreased from 15.9% to 12.6%. Of the 20 buildings surveyed, 6 experienced a decrease in available square footage, 4 had an increase and 10 were unchanged. 55 Post Road West, 276 Post Road West and 285 Riverside Avenue combined, decreased their availability by 41,516 square feet.

"I'm sure this report will perplex many people," stated John P. Hannigan, a principal at Choyce Peterson. Hannigan continued, "I've had numerous conversations with area executives and read many reports about the demise of office space. To date, our regional market has weathered the storm of COVID-19. In fact, two of the four markets surveyed, Greenwich and Westport, have seen a decrease in availability rates. Greenwich benefited from NYC based companies leasing space, while Westport's absorption was mainly comprised of companies relocating within Fairfield County."

He added, "With an increase in available space in Stamford and Norwalk, landlords in these markets are now more flexible with financial and business terms when negotiating leases. In fact, in the second half of 2020 we obtained significantly favorable results for our clients including rental rates below the ask and a substantial amount of free rent, with landlords funding and providing a new office buildout based on a tenant's specifications."

Adam Cognetta, vice president at Choyce Peterson noted, "While there has been and remains a heavy focus on strong residential market dynamics, commercial office market activity was frozen for most of 2020 and since late fall has been thawing out. We expect the uptick in activity to continue through 2021, partially offset by the longer-term implications of work-from-home flexibility and post-pandemic workplace planning. As leases expire, executives will be focused on evaluating appropriate sizing and lease terms among other key considerations."

Paramount Property Tax Appeal Offers Free Evaluation to Affluent Homeowners and Business Property Owners, RE: ‘Tax-Reduction Solutions & Overcoming Changes to Tax Laws’

SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- Now that California Proposition 19 has passed, Wes Nichols, president of Paramount Property Tax Appeal Service in San Diego has decided to offer a free evaluation to affluent families, business property owners and homeowners who are transferring property to heirs or simply wish to lower their property taxes, or appeal their tax bill.

Families & individuals are invited to call the firm directly, or to drop by the office, to receive a free property tax reduction or tax appeal evaluation. Mr. Nichols is advising upscale California property owners that, "Property tax relief will be severely limited by changes to Proposition 58's Parent-to-Child Exemption. There are only 8-weeks left to prepare, evaluate and potentially appeal property taxes - usually reducing property tax by 20% to 30%."

The Paramount firm is stressing the fact that homeowners and commercial property owners are running out of time to prepare for changes to California property tax relief, that, if not addressed in Dec or Jan, will cost families and businesses thousands of dollars in unexpected, additional property taxes. Mr. Nichols states this is why Paramount Property Tax Appeal is opening their doors & phone lines to California property owners and families inheriting real property - so they can take advantage of the firm's offer, for the first time in their corporate history, to get a free evaluation focusing on Property Tax Reduction; Property Appraisal; Real Property Tax Appeal, Business Property Tax Appeal, and Business Personal Property Tax Compliance.

Company president Wes Nichols announced this week: "We can't emphasize enough how important it is for families to get in right now - this week or next week - to see us, so we can evaluate their estate planning and property tax situation, and complete their paperwork to lock in their future tax base. With Proposition 19 becoming property tax law, Californians only have until Feb. 2021 to complete estate planning, in order to pass down low assessed values to their children.

"Proposition 19 is designed to eliminate the Parent-to-Child Exemption (or Exclusion), for properties that are not owner-occupied homes within 12-months. This means homes, apartment buildings and other commercial properties will all be assessed at current, full market value when you transfer title to your children. As for appeals, we have an 80% success rate, which is a testament to our dedication and hard work for our clients."

It is worth noting that Paramount Property Tax Appeal is one of the few property tax firms in California that provides a large staff and complex data-system for proprietary property tax reduction solutions and tax appeal programs - guaranteeing parents the ability to pass down their low assessed value in the future to their children. Even if property is held in an LLC or a trust.

Mr. Nichols goes on to explain: "This year, Californians face unprecedented tax challenges unlike any year prior; due in part to the Coronavirus shutdown and resulting economic crisis, severely impacting property values and estate planning. Families with estate planning needs have to realize they only have 8-weeks left before the doors for California property tax relief from Proposition 13 and Proposition 58 slam shut - when Proposition 19 becomes active. This will dismantle tax breaks protected by the Parent-to-Child Exemption, which allows you to avoid property tax reassessment at current market rates."

"Folks should understand that by engaging us now, you start the process of setting up your tax appeal; to reduce your overall tax burden. Waiting until you're too close to the appeals deadline can be a recipe for disaster! Bottom line, we truly enjoy helping people - no matter what their net worth or property values are."

To get a free evaluation for trusts, estate planning, property tax appeals and property tax reduction, property owners can call the firm's main line at (858) 225-1200 with the option to discuss over the phone, or to come in and review their property tax and/or business personal property tax needs with a property tax specialist.

Minnesota Property Management Firm Provides Property Owners Relief

NEW BRIGHTON, Minn. -- According to Guardian Property Management, now is the ideal time for property investors and owners to hire a property management company to help them manage their investments.

"Self-managing an investment property is never recommended, but was easier in pre-pandemic times," Jennifer Spadine, president and CEO at Guardian Property Management, says. "Now, renters are losing jobs or dealing with stressful household situations. Some are facing financial barriers to paying the rent. They and their families are working and schooling from home, causing more day-to-day maintenance needed to keep things running smoothly. Finding time to collect rent, handle resident requests or maintain the property as needed has become burdensome."

For a small percentage of the rent, Guardian Property Management will manage the property for them and provide peace of mind in stressful times. It partners its experience with property owners' investments.

Guardian Property Management distinguishes itself from its competitors in a number of ways. It refers to them as the "Three Uniques."

They are:

1 - Trusted advisors on staff (not brokers or contractors): Leasing agents, maintenance technicians and project managers

2 - Transparency. Fees and expenses are discussed with clients early on and are included in the management contract. There are no additional fees for items such as lease renewals, rental license renewals or annual processing of "Certificates of Rent Paid."

3 - Excellent client communication.

"When a client calls, we answer the phone," Spadine says.

About Guardian Property Management

Purchased in 2004, Guardian Property Management is an established, award-winning property management firm. Guardian provides full property management, extensive leasing services as well as property maintenance and repair. It services the entire Minneapolis and St. Paul metro area, including Richfield, Robbinsdale, Maple Grove, Edina, Bloomington, Blaine, Roseville, Woodbury, New Brighton, and Shoreview, among others.

It also currently services more than 250 property owners with over 800 properties of all sizes from single-family homes to multi-unit apartment buildings. It's focused on building personal relationships with property owners and residents while being responsive to their unique needs 24 hours per day.
