Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

June is National Safety Month and Summer is the perfect time to share the following tips with your clients and sphere:

Summer Safety Tips

Beat the Heat

​Anybody can be at risk for heat-related illness. Follow these summer safety tips, like taking extra breaks and drinking lots of water.

Bug Safety

Mosquitoes can cause a number of illnesses, including Zika Virus and West Nile Virus. Learn what you can do to protect yourself at work and play.

Playgrounds

Emergency departments see more than 20,000 children ages 14 and younger for playground-related traumatic brain injury each year.

Fireworks

Summer is synonymous with barbecues, parades, fireworks displays – and plenty of visits to emergency rooms, especially during July.

Water Safety

Not including boating incidents, on average about nine people die from drowning every day.The younger the child, the greater the risk

Bicycling

Bicyclists must take extra precautions when they ride. They often share the road with vehicles, but injuries can happen even on a bike path.

Skateboarding

Everyone falls, but there’s a right way to do it. In 2015, 125,145 people were treated in hospital emergency rooms after being injured skateboarding.

Boating

Most boating experiences are positive. But joyful times quickly can turn deadly if boaters are not vigilant about safety – at all times.

Pedestrian Safety

Cell phone distracted walking is a huge problem, and rarely are we more vulnerable than when walking, crossing streets and negotiating traffic.

Agent Tip of the Week! 

MUD Notice

 

I’ve heard that a seller whose home is located in a municipal utility district, or MUD, is required to give a buyer special notices. What are the notices, and where can I find them?


 

A MUD is a political subdivision of the state that’s authorized by the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality to provide water, sewage, drainage, and other services within its boundaries. The seller is required by the Texas Water Code to provide notice to a buyer that the property is located within a MUD prior to the buyer entering into a sales contract. The notice must provide information regarding the tax rate, bonded indebtedness, and fees, if any, of the MUD. Usually, the fact that the property is within a MUD should be fairly obvious to the seller because it will be listed on the tax bill that the county sends to the property owner. However, the seller will not always know what specific type of notice to provide to the buyer based on the requirements in the Water Code.


 

The seller must choose from three notices, based on the location of the MUD:


 

If the MUD is located within city limits, use the notice in 49.452(c) of the Water Code


 

If the MUD is not in city limits but within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the city, use the notice in 49.452(b)


 

If the MUD is in neither, then use the notice in 49.452(d). You have two options for obtaining copies of the notices. MUDs are required to file these notices with their county property records office, so you may request a copy from the county. In addition, the MUD itself is required to keep the correct notice on hand and can provide a copy for a small administrative fee not to exceed $10.


 

To look up a district’s information, including the contact information for the district’s agent, use TCEQ’s online database of utility districts.


 

 


Megan’s Memo!

 mailbox-002

 

Hello Everyone! Recently Office Depot/Max changed the rules for our discount code and they no longer have the code on hand behind the counter. You have to physically have the code with you in order to get the KW discount. I have the code below and we have also posted this on the bulletin board in the copier room. You can also find it in our Facebook Documents section as well as on the Intranet! Let me know if you have any questions!

Tip of the week!

Website and Social Media Review!

Look at your website and social media sites with new eyes! If you are unable to stand back and look at your online presence with eyes of a non-real estate professional, I encourage you to sit with a very honest friend or volunteer who will look at things from their own perspective and give you feedback. Here are some things I would consider:

  1. Do they find it easy to understand what services you provide?

 

  • Do you just say you are a real estate agent or do you tell them what you provide that would encourage them to contact you?

 

  1. Do they know why they should have you represent them for their real estate needs?

 

  • Do you show your value? This could include your negotiating skills, your knowledge of the industry and neighborhoods? Or your integrity and commitment to them?

 

  1. Do you use terminology that is only typically used in the real estate profession or are you speaking their language?

 

  • Does your website have a menu item “listings search”? How about changing that to “home search”?

 

  1. Do you provide value?

 

  • Give people a reason to stay connected with you. Add value!

 

  1. Do you tell them what you want them to do while they are on your website or engaging with other social media?

 

  • This is a “call to action”! Don’t assume someone will do a home search or contact you. Give them a reason to do something, then tell them what you would like them to do. A good call to action gets people moving!

Remember when you or someone else does this objective review of your social media that feedback is a gift! It is not that you need to make every change that someone might suggest, but hear them, and appreciate what they are saying. Take what they have said into consideration. I encourage you to do this review from time to time in order to keep your online presence fresh and engaging!
