5959 Suncreek Dr

Well, that was fast. My new listing on Suncreek Dr has gone pending. A family has been renting in the neighborhood and just waiting for the right house to come along. They saw this one and jumped on it. One of their requests was that this weekend’s open houses be canceled. For this reason, there will not be an open house at 5959 Suncreek Dr this weekend.

Thank you!

Featured Property: 5959 Suncreek Dr

What a beautiful house! I am super excited to introduce you to 5959 Suncreek Dr in the Westlake neighborhood of Lake Oswego. Here are the stats:

$829,000
3315 square feet
4 bedrooms + den, 2.5 baths
Built in 1988 and totally remodeled
Kitchen, baths, furnace and central air all new in 2016
Since 2016 paint inside and out, electric panel, insulation, garage door openers, hot water heater

Built by Olsen Homes, this house is turn-key and features a master on the main level.

Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, the house is adjacent to Southwood Park and enjoys views of the greenspace.

If you are not familiar with Westlake, this is a highly desirable neighborhood because of its convenience to I-5 and 217. It also features a huge park where summer concerts are held.

I’ll be holding this house open this Saturday and Sunday (July 13th and 14th) from noon to 3:00 each day. Come on by!

Time to Talk FIRPTA

FIRPTA has been around for along time, but today, it’s become something that Realtors are making an effort to make sure that their clients are fully informed about. FIRPTA is the Foreign Investment in Real Property Tax Act. It is a way for the IRS to collect capital gains from non U.S. citizens who are selling real estate, but don’t live in the United States.

It is particularly important to buyers because if not handled correctly, it has huge financial consequences.

FIRPTA requires that a non resident foreign person pay 10% (for sales of $300,000 to $1,000,000) or 15% (for sales over $1,000,000) of the sales price of the property to the IRS at closing. This will force the non resident foreign person to file a tax return to get back any money that was over collected.

It’s pretty logical. I’d say that there’s a high likelihood that if this was not done, that taxes owing as capital gain would never be collected because the person and the money would be outside of the United States.

So, this may seem pretty mundane, but here is the kicker. If the money is not collected and paid to the IRS, then it becomes a liability to the person who bought the house. Yes, people who seem perfectly innocent can then be hit with an IRS bill in the thousands of dollars. Not so mundane any more, right?

When handled correctly, buyers and sellers will see a disclosure about this issue right up front. Then an affidavit is signed by the home seller to state whether they are a non resident foreign person or not. This affidavit is held by the title company involved to be safe guarded for 6 years on behalf of the buyer of the home. It is a way to protect buyers by showing that every effort was made to comply with FIRPTA. When this is done, the buyer is not liable to the IRS.

This is one reason it’s a good idea to use a Realtor. We take classes and stay informed about issues that are important in the home buying process. We are here to make your experience smooth and successful in every way possible.

As always, thanks for reading the blotter.

Lake Oswego Festival of the Arts

One of the big events in Lake Oswego each year is the Festival of the Arts. It always occurs in the later half of June, so it pretty much kicks off the summer. This year’s event, the 56th annual, will be June 21-23. It takes place at the Lakewood Center for the arts and also across the street at George Roger’s Park. It is free to attend. Specific hours are 10-9 Friday and Saturday and 10-5 on Sunday.

Within the Lakewood Center a juried fine art show is exhibited. It’s so big that it spills out into a gigantic covered tent that is always set up in the parking lot. The show features local, national, and international artists. Spectacular paintings, sculptures and ceramics are show cased. I always enjoy seeing the pieces that receive awards and deciding if I agree with the judges or not. Many of the pieces are offered for sale. There is a special category for high school students.

Also within the Lakewood Center is the special exhibit. It is different each year and this year it is called Origin Stories: Comics and Identity. Its an exhibition celebrating “the unique formal qualities of comics as a medium, as well as the infinite possibilities of expression the form allows”.

Across the street at George Rogers Park is the much more informal art and craft fair. Booths are set up for artisans to sell their hand-made creations. It a bit of everything: ceramics, jewelry, yard art, just a lot of wonderful creations. Also at George Rogers Park is a food court and a covered area to get out of the sun while you dine. There are two stages where performances are held throughout the day each day.

There is just a lot to enjoy. I highly encourage you to come and check it out!

As always, thanks for reading the blotter,
Dianne
