Morgan Properties currently owns 5,000 units in Northern VA. “We are extremely proud of

our organization in achiev- ing this significant milestone of reaching 50,000 units. We considered this portfolio a once in a lifetime acquisition opportunity as it marks the largest multifamily transac- tion in Pennsylvania to date and officially makes us the top multifamily owner in our home state,” said Jonathan Morgan , president of Morgan Properties JV. “This transac- tion solidifies the geographic concentration in two of our core markets of suburban Philadelphia and Northern VA. We are confident in the strong fundamentals of the multifam-

owner and operator following its historic portfolio acquisition of 10 apartment communities with 4,130 apartments span- ning Philadelphia and North- ern Virginia. This acquisition brings Morgan Properties’ Pennsylvania portfolio to 9,300 units and its total unit count reaches 50,000 units for the first time since its inception in 1985. This landmark acquisi- tion marks the largest multi- family transaction in Phila- delphia to date and expands the company’s already growing presence in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic Region.

Why the CRE Community Should Embrace Technology-Driven Auctions H Ian Grusd olding an auction to maximize value is a common practice across many industries includ- ing cars, antiques and art, and can even be viewed as a high- end, exclusive event. However, this widely accepted perspec- tive of auctions doesn’t fully carry over into the real estate industry. In the past, commercial real estate auctions have generally been associated with foreclo- sures and distressed proper- ties. With more than $20.5 billion worth of real estate transacted online, Ten-X Com- mercial has changed that per- ception within the CRE space, proving that auctions are ben- eficial to buyers, brokers and sellers alike. In fact, some key benefits of online CRE auctions include an efficient streamlined process, achieving true market value, and reducing the time, from list to close, by 50 percent. Auctions have become a reli-

able indicator of buying inter- est in the current real estate market. Specifically, online auctions have a unique ability to reach a wider audience of serious buyers who would have previously been unaware that certain properties were avail- able due to physical geographi- cal limitations. With more serious, qualified bidders and a competitive bidding environ- ment an auction can generate a final price that maximizes value and is indicative of true market value. Furthermore, auctions are proven to cause a sense of urgency and competi- tion among bidders, leading to increased activity and height- ened excitement. Ten-X’s signature auction

solution, Live Bid, has many unique benefits. For example, the streamlined process accel- erates the transaction timeline so that 96 percent of deals close in 90 days or less – much quicker than the overall tra- ditional offline closing period. Also, Ten-X’s Dashboard gives sellers and listing brokers access to data analytics that provide transparency on the most likely qualified bidders, where that potential bidder is located, and real-time insights into bidder activity. On the bidder side, potential buyers are able to see the previous bid amount and how much time is left on the clock to continue placing new bids – all online continued on page 3A

Wherever or whatever, we make it happen. Your commercial real estate transaction demands innovative expertise and principal involvement. Our network of 70 global offices is exceptionally experienced and intentionally independent. And the Mars site? We’re working on it. Let’s talk today.

A ppraisal

he ACLU of Dela- ware, on behalf of De l awa r e ans f o r By Alexander D. Knight, MAI, AI-GRS, Delaware Chapter of the Appraisal Institute Statewide real property reassessment may be in Delaware’s future! T

low-income and non-white students experience mean- ingful disparities in resource allocation sufficient that af- fects the adequacy of their education. According to the Delaware ACLU, “instead of focusing on how we should fund schools” the focus is “on what high-poverty schools require to successfully edu- cate and prepare all students for successful lives and ca- reers.” Educational resources and their allocation are deter- mined by the current assess- ment system in the state.

The ACLU of Delaware sum- marizes the issue: “There are also fewer resources avail- able to schools because of the failure to reassess prop- erty values for more than 30 years. The failure … means that the underlying school tax base has remained flat for decades while the cost of running schools has risen substantially due to inflation and increased enrollment.” Vice Chancellor Travis Laster denied a motion to dismiss the suit in late 2018, and indicated that legal teams should be ready to

argue how the state assesses property taxes. In a twist, in January of 2019 the City of Wilmington joined the suit against the government of- ficials. Wilmington does not have its own school district, but is divided between mul- tiple County districts. Ac- cording to Delaware Public Media, “the City’s primary concern is not schools— it’s tax revenue. …The City ar- gues the County’s failure to do a general property tax re- assessment for 36 years has had an ‘irreparable’ impact on City revenue.”

The likely statewide reas- sessment in Delaware has the potential to create many opportunities for valuation and legal professionals prac- ticing in the First State. On May 2, the chapter joins the Delaware Real Es- tateWomen (DREW) and the Delaware Satellite Council of the Urban Land Institute Philadelphia. Presenters include Dan Blevins, principal planner, WILMAPCO; Dave Gula, senior planner, WILMAP- CO; and Michael J. Hare, executive vice president for development, BPG. Change is constant and there is plenty going on in North Wilmington. Concord Pike traffic counts are in excess of 55,000 vehicles per day and, even with economic downturns, the corridor has maintained its competitive- ness as a prime retail and office location. Planners for the Wilmington Area Plan- ning Council (WILMAPCO) will discuss findings of their recent commissioned land use assessment of the Con- cord Pile corridor. Mr. Hare from BPG will speak about the background and phased redevelopment of the Con- cord Plaza office park into a mixed-use walkable develop- ment with a mix of residen- tial, ground level retail, and office uses. In addition, there will be a tour of the Concord Plaza and the recently con- structed apartments as we discuss these new real estate ventures. The panelists will also discuss the following announced large-scale de- velopments happening along Route 202, including: • Concord Plaza (devel- oped by BPG) • Avenue North (developed by Delle Donne and Associ- ates, Inc.) • Columbia Place (devel- oped by the Reybold Group) • Brandywine Country Club’s proposed redevelop- ment • Proposed sale and re- development of the Widner Law School campus.

Upcoming Dinner Meeting Joins SNJAI & AMANJ

The Southern New Jersey Chapter of the Appraisal Institute will hold its annual seminar/dinner event with the Association of Municipal Assessors of NJ on Thursday, April 18th , at the Adelphia Restaurant in Deptford, NJ . The topic of this year’s event is “Trends Affecting Our Local Appraisal/Assessing Industry.” Historically, this is the best attended event of the year, and this year’s agenda promises to fill the room once again. The seminar begins at 3pm, with two different topics. The first speaker is Carlo Batts, MAI, of Rittenhouse Appraisals . He will review local current pending legislation which deals with the use of tax abatement. He will also discuss land use issues and the way these developments are being processed. The focus of his discussion will be on current local issues and what’s to come in other municipalities. The next segment is presented by Richard J. Carabelli, Jr, MAI, CTA, Martin Appraisal Associates, Inc. & Mercer County Board of Taxation, President and Commissioner, and Cliff Moore, Monmouth County Board of Taxation, President and Commissioner . This presentation brings two experts of the NJ tax boards to present important information, includes defining the tax board and noting its powers and duties. They will also review a CTB appeal/value procedures, relaxing the rules, dismissal without prejudice, the importance of USPAP and non-licensed expert witnesses. They will answer these questions: Who has standing? Can an assessor be forced to testify? What questions can a commissioner ask? The information presented will be VERY helpful to appraisers and assessors! After dinner, Judge Joseph M. Andresini, P.J.T.C. , will discuss tax court issues & recent cases from across the state. His insight and experience will be a great benefit to all. Joseph M. Andresini, P.J.T.C. took the oath of office as presiding judge on January 16, 2018. Judge Andresini began his time with the tax court in October 2009. Prior to that, he served as a Municipal Court Judge in the Borough of Haworth. He earned his Jurist Doctorate from Seton Hall School of Law in 1984. For information on how to register, email lisamayweiss@hotmail.com, or visit our newly updated website: www.ai-snj.org.
