2020 Edition of Best Practices: From Listing to Closing

The 2020 Edition of Best Practices: From Listing to Closing is now available.  New features for 2020 include: a full table of contents, a consistent format throughout, a reader-friendly line spacing, an introduction of abbreviations, a QR code for each URL, and more. 

Could You Defend Yourself in a Fair Housing Complaint?

A sales associate can drastically reduce the chances of facing defenseless fair housing violations charges by employing a consistent approach to greeting people, showing homes, qualifying prospects, obtaining listings, conducting open houses, keeping records, and following up with clients and customers.

Commissions are Negotiable

Can a buyer's agent negotiate the cooperative fee with the listing broker?

Yes, with one exception.

Angel Tree Toy Drive

Until Dec 5, we are collecting donations for children and seniors in need.  Let's make a difference this holiday season.

Reminder for Brokers

Save yourself some money and hassle; remember that as a Designated REALTOR® and MLS Participant that adding a new agent to your roster comes with responsibilities to CMR.

C2EX Certificates

Thank you to each member who submitted their C2EX certificate. We are happy to announce that we are now able to get those records automatically from NAR and that there is no longer a need to forward those certificates to us.

MCAR Sponsored Commercial Real Estate “Tool Box” Panel Event

Attend this 3-hour session on Nov 12 and learn from experts about the purchase agreement, the survey, environmental issues, the appraisal, financing, and closing.

Watch Your Contract Deadlines

Also, know what it takes to meet them.

Attention to detail is monumental when working through a real estate transaction. If the closing date cannot be met, do not assume the parties will agree to an extension. Both clients are put in jeopardy when the agents involved are not properly facilitating their part of the transaction. Being complacent can cost you the deal. It can also cause the parties to look carefully at whether or not you honored your fiduciary duty to discharge reasonable care and diligence.

Communication is paramount. Keep the other REALTOR® informed of issues that affect the closing as soon as you know them and document that communication.

Auto-Billing Not Available for Annual REALTOR® Renewal

By now, you will have received your annual REALTOR® renewal notices by email.  Please note that auto-billing is only an option with quarterly MLS fees, not with annual REALTOR® membership renewal.  Staff can neither 'assume' that you want to renew REALTOR® membership nor 'assume' that you wish to include your voluntary RPAC investment.  As such, each individual must manually pay annual REALTOR® renewal through the Member Portal.
