On today’s age-50-plus home tour, see wide choice of places, prices, and purchase options

Denver’s primacy as a location for age-50-plus housing has been building for 20 years, when builders first began creating communities around that market.  Now, as demographic changes and the virus emergency add more energy to the demand, you’ll find even wider choices of places to live and ways of purchasing, including these possibilities:

Urban Lifestyles: This year you’ll find four options close to Denver’s urban core and its popular Cherry Creek shopping district: Those include new-urban homes with main-floor masters or elevators in Lowry; and two popular enclaves built decades ago that have rare resales now.

You have options to stay in your homes

Our nation’s housing market continues to be a bright spot in the economy, even as our country fights to regain its footing from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. Still, many people may need help getting back on their feet, especially those with hardships brought on by this pandemic. That is why the Trump administration has taken unprecedented steps to support homeowners and renters who are struggling to make mortgage or rent payments.

However, what many homeowners and renters in need of assistance may not realize is that they must also take action — and take action now — to get help. The best outcomes for homeowners and renters can only be achieved if they seek help as early as possible.

At the Federal Housing Administration, we’ve put in place a moratorium on foreclosures for FHA single-family homeowners. We’ve also allowed homeowners to take up to a year of forbearance,

When a tenant renting someone’s condo breaks the rules, condo boards have multiple options for recourse

Q. I am a board member of a Chicago condominium association. Between Gov. J.B. Pritzker’s executive orders relating to COVID-19 restrictions and Chicago’s COVID-19 restrictions, it is dizzying to keep track. What advice do you have for condominium associations to stay updated?

A. The coronavirus pandemic is a moving target, and federal, state and local guidelines continue to evolve and are revised with some regularity. Unfortunately, that is the nature of this new virus.

Chicago is currently in phase four (out of five), but the restrictions within phase four have already been revised more than once. Effective Oct. 30, the governor has re-implemented certain restrictions for Chicago and many collar counties due to the recent surge in COVID-19 cases. Those restrictions include, but are not limited to: prohibiting indoor bar and restaurant service, closing outdoor dining at 11 p.m., prohibiting party buses and limiting meetings and social gatherings to 25

D-backs decline options for three pitchers, including Leake

PHOENIX – The Arizona Diamondbacks have declined options for the 2021 season for right-handed pitchers Mike Leake, Hector Rondón and Junior Guerra.

Leake and Rondón become eligible for free agency, and Guerra for salary arbitration in February.

The 32-year-old Leake went 3-3 with a 4.35 ERA in 10 starts for the D-backs in 2019 after being traded from the Mariners. He opted out of the 2020 season because of concerns with the coronavirus.

His contract included an $18 million club option for 2021 with a $5 million buyout.

Rondón, 32, had a disappointing season in 2020, finishing with a 7.65 ERA in 23 appearances. The reliever gets a $500,000 buyout instead of next year’s $4 million salary.

Guerra, 35, pitched well in 2020 with a 3.04 ERA in 25 appearances. He receives a $100,000 buyout instead of a $3.5 million salary. The team faces a Dec. 2 deadline to offer

Bringing Real Options Trading to the Commercial Real Estate Market

By John Smollen, Head of Exchange Traded Products and Strategic Relations, MIAX, and Jesse Stein, Managing Principal, Advanced Fundamentals LLC

Consider the value of a 15-story Class B office building with four elevators in the central part of any American city.

John Smollen, MIAX

While its value may have always fluctuated, based on some tangible, measurable factors you could estimate closely its value in February 2020. Then came the pandemic.

All the tenants are now working successfully from home. You don’t know how many will renew their leases or what office space in general will be worth post-pandemic.

Now multiply that scenario tens of thousands of times across every class of commercial real estate and you begin to see the scope of the commercial real estate valuation problem.

While it is certainly true that the pandemic has ravaged many classes of assets, those investment sectors often have something previously unavailable
