"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."

    Worcester Wed 6/12: Albion Show-and-Tell, Bubble Panel

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    06/12/2019
    Worcester Technical High School
    1 Skyline Dr, Worcester, MA 01605, USA

    Part I: The Albion Restored

    We’re sending a photographer to meet Mike O’Rourke and create a PowerPoint show-and-tell. Mike restored an infamous downtown Worcester rooming house
    called “The Albion” from a state of neglect to a well-run, well respected, and greatly admired home for many. He has come up with some surprising and
    effective new approaches to management and buildings. From security to electric stoves, we’ll learn how it’s really done. There will be no “before” pictures, we’ll be
    focused on what works now.

    Mike has been written about at least twice in the Worcester Telegram and Gazette, is a MassLandlords State-wide Board Member Emeritus, and has contributed
    immeasurably to the cause of creating better rental housing in Massachusetts.

    Part II: Are We In a Bubble?

    We have finally corralled the speakers we need to have this discussion. With building prices what they are, who can make money on a new acquisition?
    No one can predict the future, but we can speculate and we can build defenses, in some ways. And we can prepare to buy, in other ways.
    Or we can ignore the naysayers and just keep buying. We’ll have a good discussion.

    This part of the presentation will be given by our Bubble Panel:

    Yes there is a bubble:

    Rich Merlino, MassLandlords emcee

    Carmine Zamarro, realtor, lender and builder with 40 years experience

    No, there is no bubble:

    Doug Quattrochi, MassLandlords Executive Director

    Nelson Zide, realtor with 40 years experience

    Our panelists will be arguing assigned or voluntary positions. Audience participation encouraged but not required.

    Longmeadow Thu 6/13: State Sanitary Code, Economic Opportunity Zones

    5:30 PM-9:00 PM
    06/13/2019
    Twin Hills Country Club
    700 Wolf Swamp Rd, Longmeadow, MA 01106, USA

    Our season finale will be back at Longmeadow where we’ll discussing our buildings and our portfolios.

    Part I: Residential State Sanitary Code

    We’ll start the evening by reviewing the residential state sanitary code, which is the defining feature of residential rental real estate.
    Unlike your own home, in which you might tolerate deficiencies, or a commercial building, where you can put maintenance
    on the renter, residential rental real estate requires owners to maintain their premises inside and out. We’ll
    be reviewing the common issues and how to remedy and foolproof them.

    This part of the presentation will be given by either David Cotter, Springfield’s Deputy Director of Housing Code Enforcement
    or Steve Desilets, Springfield’s City Code Enforcement Commissioner.
    David and Steve are kind enough to join us outside their jurisdiction and share their knowledge of the state sanitary code,
    which applies to all municipalities equally.

    This is the topic that was previously scheduled for May.

    Part II: Economic Opportunity Zones

    The Tax Cut and Jobs Act of 2017 granted states the power to define Economic Opportunity Zones, which offer tax-deferred or tax-free investment
    opportunities to landlords and businesses alike. We’ll review this process and show areas in your neck of the woods that would qualify.

    This part of the presentation is MassLandlords repertoire and will be given by MassLandlords staff or an accountant TBA.

    Heating systems can and should be perfect: the Sanitary Code regulates dwelling temperatures
