Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

Our office is booming and June was our best month ever!  We are on track to reach our $1 Billion Dollar Sales Goal if everyone will do their part.  Due to everyone’s hard work thus far, we are bringing back Wine Down Friday on the first Friday of each month.  We will kick off our celebration on Friday, August 4th, from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. so save the date.  We will have wine, cheese, crackers and a fun project.  To keep us focused on our goal, we are going to make a Billion Dollar Dream Board during Wine Down for our office.  It will be fun to work on this project while sharing a glass of wine together!
 
Don’t forget to RSVP for next Sunday’s Family BBQ Picnic by Monday, July 24th.  
 
Please bring your spouse, guest, and children!  Please let us know how many are attending so we can have the correct amount of food ordered.  Please RSVP to Erin at erinfulton@kw.com or on the intranet training calendar by Monday, 7/24/17.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

TREC to emphasize enforcement of Information About Brokerage Services form rules

Posted on July 11, 2017 by TAR

Is your IABS form filled out and posted to all your business websites?

“We’re emphasizing IABS rules because far too many license holders are still not in compliance,” says Texas Real Estate Commission Chairman Avis Wukasch. “Also, now that the requirement for license holders to identify themselves in advertising as a licensed broker or agent has been eliminated, it makes the proper display and delivery of the IABS notice even more important for consumer protection.”

What’s required?

Texas law requires all agents and brokers to provide written notice regarding information about brokerage services at the first substantive communication with a prospective client. The Information About Brokerage Services form is the required method to provide that information to those parties.

Do you have a website?

Even if you deliver the required form in person or via email to prospective clients, you’re required to post a completed IABS form on the homepage of your business website. “Completed” means that all applicable fields are filled out—blank forms don’t count.

What counts as a business website?

If the URL is listed on your business card, yard sign, or ad, it’s a business website. TREC says it’s “any website used to attract or conduct real estate brokerage activity”—that includes Facebook business pages. If you have more than one business website, a link to your completed IABS form must be provided on the homepage of each one.

Where to get more compliance information,

Go to the commission’s website for tips and videos to help you comply.

BROKER COMPLIANCE:

By: Barbara Trumbull – Posted: Thu, Jul 13, 2017 @ 5:20 PM

Please add the IABS to your websites by July 20th!!!

Existing Home Sales Up 1.1%

business - growth 8Existing-home sales rebounded in May following a notable decline in April, and low inventory levels helped propel the median sales price to a new high while pushing down the median days a home is on the market to a new low, according to the National Association of Realtors®. All major regions except for the Midwest saw an increase in sales last month.

Existing-home sales, which are completed transactions that include single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and co-ops, climbed 1.1 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 5.62 million in May from a downwardly revised 5.56 million in April. Last month’s sales pace is 2.7 percent above a year ago and is the third highest over the past year.

House _Transparent.pngLawrence Yun, NAR chief economist, says sales activity expanded in May as more buyers overcame the increasingly challenging market conditions prevalent in many areas. “The job market in most of the country is healthy and the recent downward trend in mortgage rates continues to keep buyer interest at a robust level,” he said. “Those able to close on a home last month are probably feeling both happy and relieved. Listings in the affordable price range are scarce, homes are coming off the market at an extremely fast pace and the prevalence of multiple offers in some markets are pushing prices higher.”

Inventory is currently at a 3.8-month supply. Existing homes averaged 29 days on market in April, five fewer days than in March and 10 fewer days than one year prior. Non-distressed homes took 28 days to sell. All told, 52 percent of homes sold in April were on the market for less than one month.

Fabulous Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

$1 Billion Dollars Baby!  Have you seen it?  It is our sales goal for the remaining months of 2017.  This should be top of mind as we finish the last half of the year strong.

What will you do to contribute to this goal of $1 Billion Dollars?  What is your purpose?  What is your BIG WHY?  What are your business objectives?  What can you be doing differently to grow your business?  Anne asked each of us this question:  If Keller Williams Dallas Metro North was the best real estate company in the world, what does that look like?  These are all questions that your staff are also contemplating.  I hope you are working with a coach or business partner to hold you accountable and help you reach your full potential.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week!

FROM GLAR

NTREIS Disclaimer:  Have you noticed the phrase that states “Buyer and buyer agent to verify schools (and/or all information)” etc.?  

This phrase is an attempt to redirect responsibility of listing accuracy to the buyer and/or buyer agent which violates MLS Rule 7.10.  This is misused all over the MLS and offers no protection to the seller or listing agent/broker.  The only disclaimer that should be on a listing is the one automatically inserted on each listing when printed or emailed as created by NTREIS:  Information Deemed Reliable, but not Guaranteed.  Copyright:  2017 NTREIS. 

MLS Rule 7.10 All information concerning a Listed Property must be as accurate and complete in every detail as may be ascertainable by the Listing Participant. The Listing Participant shall verify and confirm the accuracy of all information furnished to Other Participants and the public.
