“The silent generation – older Americans who are typically grandparents and great-grandparents – for years have prioritized living near family and other loved ones,” said Lawrence Yun, NAR’s chief economist. “But it was surprising to see younger millennials with homebuying preferences and ideals similar to older segments of the population.” http://ow.ly/Yn4C50yDK3n

HJR 203: Real Estate Transfer Tax Hearing
Respond to OAR Call for Action

Oregonians resoundingly passed Measure 79 in 2012, amending the Oregon Constitution to prevent taxes on the sale or transfer of real estate property. Oregonians already pay significant taxes on their homes in the form of property taxes and did not feel it was fair to be taxed again upon the sale or transfer of their property.

However, Governor Brown is proposing to repeal this constitutional ban on double-taxation with HJR 203. This Joint Resolution would refer to voters a constitutional amendment to allow for real estate transfer taxes. The bill was up for a hearing on February 11, 2020 at 5:30pm in the House Committee on Revenue.

OAR put out a Call for Action (CFA) for members to contact legislators.

Questions? Contact Taylor Shanaman, OAR Government Affairs Director.

From: Kelly Barker with Oregon Association of REALTORS®
RE: Two Core Standards Activities & Update to Online Orientation Module

The 2020 Compliance Tool isn’t available yet, but should be this month. Be ready to start early and add the activities you’re doing throughout the year.

Monday OAR sent out a Call for Action on House Joint Resolution 203 - Tell your Legislators NO on HJR 203! Thank you for promoting this to your membership. Save a copy of your promotion to upload into Core Standards Compliance Tool! The public hearing was yesterday, so if you have not promoted the CFA it is now too late and you’ll need to be ready for the next state Call for Action!

Required bylaw provisions – Each association executive must certify the association’s compliance by submitting this form no later than March 1.

Online Certification Form: https://www.nar.realtor/BylCompCert.nsf/mainmenu

The attached form includes the five mandatory provisions, or use this link to find online: https://www.nar.realtor/sites/default/files/documents/2020-BYLAW-COMPLIANCE-CERTIFICATION-FORM.docx

Remember the date you complete the certification for Core Standards!

General association news:

NAR and OAR Online New Member Orientation modules – If you use this online tool for your new member orientation, you’ve probably received the notice from NAR that they won’t be updating their module. OAR will not be updating the state module either. Instead, OAR is creating an Orientation Video that will be out at a later date (to be announced).

10/16/2019
Albany Development Code Amendment Project

Two public open-house sessions are scheduled for Albany residents to review and weigh in on proposed changes to land-use regulations for nonresidential and commercial properties in the city of Albany.
The Albany Development Code (ADC) governs how land is developed and used in Albany, addressing how and where uses are allowed, how they will look, and how they might affect neighboring properties. The code affects every property in Albany. It was largely written many years ago and has evolved over time.

The open house meetings will be held on Tuesday, October 22, 2019:
• 3-4:30 p.m., at Albany Public Library, 2450 14th Avenue SE; and
• 6-7:30 p.m., in the Council Chambers at Albany City Hall, 333 Broadalbin Street SW.

Each session will include a presentation with an overview of nonresidential and commercial code concepts. Those who attend will have access to laptops to share thoughts in an online survey. Paper copies of the survey will also be available.
A citizen task force has been reviewing Albany’s land development regulations since September 2018 and expects to complete the project in mid-2021. The public can follow the project and comment online at https://www.cityofalbany.net/adc-project. The website, an online open house, provides complete information on the development code review and is being used to gather public ideas and comments through the duration of the project. Access to the survey is available here as well as on the website.
For more information please contact Planning Manager David Martineau at 541-917-7561 or [email protected].
