"I have three buildings which were financed by Masslandlords members I met at events. They are all holding first position mortgages with great rates and a small down payment. The connections I have made over the years have literally been priceless."

    Southbridge: Monday 10/1: Habitat ReStore

    7:00 PM-8:30 PM
    10/01/2018
    Southbridge Community Center
    153 Chestnut St. Southbridge, MA 01550

    This evening, please come to meet the general manager and the donation relation manager at the Worcester location.

    ReStore is operated by local Habitat For Humanity organizations. They are nonprofit home improvement stores and donation centers. Items for sale are available to the public and are similar to what might be found in other home good stores.

    The purpose of Habitat For Humanity ReStores is to contribute to the work of Habitat For Humanity. Proceeds from sales are used to help build strength, stability, self-reliance, and shelter in local communities and around the world.

    It’s fall cleanup and general maintenance time: If you have items in the attic or basement that are no longer needed or just taking up space, you might want to consider making a tax deductible donation to ReStore.

    You might also want to visit the Worcester store to explore their inventory. They offer new and “gently used” appliances, furniture, building materials, and more at a fraction of retail prices. They are located at 640 Lincoln Street in Worcester, telephone 508-799-9259.

    Part II:

    Matt Naimoli of G&N Insurance will give us at least five cost savings and five pitfalls to avoid when insuring multifamily buildings.

    Insurance Pitfalls to Avoid

    • Insufficient Rent Loss Coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
    • Insufficient Ordinance or Law coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
    • Insufficient Liability Protection: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
    • Insufficient Building coverage: What this means, how it can happen, and how to avoid
    • Individual policies vs a BOP that extends across all locations: Advantages/Disadvantages of both options and how to choose what’s right
    • Claim snafus – avoid massive headaches of there are joint ownership on properties within policy by listing all owners out per property in advance
    • Missing Endorsements – guaranteed replacement, water back up, O&Law, etc
    • Policy Reviews – Not having policies reviewed at least every third year and the downfall of allowing them to sit dormant

    Ways to Save

    • Deductible Changes and the impact: Examples
    • Evaluating options on a consistent basis: Who and How
    • Keep your replacement cost in check
    • One policy vs separate per property
    • Sprinkler system impact
    • Know when and when not to file claims
    • Update your property

    Worcester Wed Oct 10: Don't Flush Money Down the Drain, Why Would You Ever Carpet, Laws by Chapter and Verse

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    10/10/2018
    Worcester Technical High School
    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    Part I: Don’t Flush Money Down the Drain

    If you’re like most landlords, you pay for the water yourself. Besides submetering, how can you avoid flushing money down the drain? Do you know about water recirculation? No, we don’t mean plumbing
    the tub drain into the showerhead. There are myriad ways besides submetering that you can reduce your water bill.

    This part of the presentation will be given by member Robert Jordan of Energy Wise Homes. Robert has first-hand knowledge of water conservation strategies in residential rental operations.

    Part II: Why Would You Ever Carpet?

    Do you replace your carpet regularly? Here’s some food for thought: don’t! There is a wide array of manufactured floors that hold up better than carpet, vinyl, and hardwood. We’ll be reviewing the
    pros and cons of each and sharing best practice for flooring selection and long-term tenant proofing. Come find out what experienced hands have already started doing to reduce their turnover costs.

    This part of the presentation will be given by Kyle from Father and Son Flooring.

    Part III: Laws by Chapter and Verse

    The Massachusetts General Laws will be made plain by looking at them in a logical, orderly way. We’ll glide over the laws by chapter and verse, pointing out the highlights, key points, and gotchas.
    After this presentation, you’ll be better prepared to find and read the laws for yourself. Anytime someone makes up, “That’s against the law!” you’ll be able to say, “Well, let’s see here.”

    Do you have a sign on your building? You should! Have you told another landlord someone didn’t pay you rent? You shouldn’t! All this and more.

    This part of the presentation will be given by MassLandlords Executive Director Doug Quattrochi. This presenter is not an attorney. We will be providing legal information and
    pointing you to read the law for yourself. We will not be providing advice particular to your situation.

    West Springfield Thu Oct 11: 1031 Exchanges, How to Raise the Rent

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    10/11/2018
    Springfield Country Club
    1375 Elm St, West Springfield, MA 01089, USA

    Part I

    When it’s time to raise the rent, can you just declare the new rent level? Or what paperwork is required? Do we need to terminate the tenancy?
    Can they sign an addendum? How do we avoid discrimination, concessions, or other legal gotchas?

    We’ll be walking through the various ways landlords attempt to raise the rent and discussing the pitfalls with each approach. Attendees will leave with a clear understanding of
    the way judges want to see rent raises carried out.

    This part of the presentation will be presented by Attorney Kate Higgins-Shea.

    Chris Brown of Section1031.com

    Part II

    What’s the biggest tax savings ever? How about if you saved over $100,000?
    Come learn about IRS Section 1031, which allows owners to avoid recapture tax.

    In a nutshell, owners can depreciate their property, saving tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars in taxes
    over the life of the building, and then they can sell out and transfer that money into new property of like kind without paying recapture tax.
    Everyone serious about rental property as an investment vehicle should understand Section 1031. But it’s not for the faint of heart! Tight timelines are involved.
    If you do it only once if your life, it will still save you $100,000 or more, depending on the value of your property.

    This part will be presented by Chris Brown of Edmund & Wheeler.
