Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies! 

A BIG Thank You to everyone that donated backpacks and school supplies for our local students.  We have also collected financial donations of over $600.  Thank You to our financial donors as well who have helped us get closer to our goal of 200 stuffed backpacks.  We currently have close to 100 backpacks stuffed and ready for pick up on Monday.  We are halfway to our goal so if you still want to give, please do so by this weekend if possible.  These stuffed backpacks mean so much to the children and teachers in LISD.  A Special Thank You to Stacey Reynolds, Angie Willbern and Patty Southard for their hard work on this project.

The GLAR cheering school bus of riders will arrive on Monday, 7/30/18, at approximately 11:10 a.m. and take photos with all people present at our office. The more, the merrier – everyone in our Market Center can be part of this.  Photos will go out to GLAR members, be submitted to Real Estate Friends, and to the news media.  Please meet us in the lobby around 11:00 a.m. if you would like to participate.  Bring your cameras so you can post some news-worthy photos on your social media sites.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

 

Does TREC consider a license holder’s URL or domain name or email address to be advertising?

TREC does not consider URLs or email addresses to be advertisements in and of themselves. However, an advertisement that contains a URL or email address of a sales agent that includes a title that implies responsibility for a brokerage violates TREC Rule 535.155(d)(4). Further, TREC will consider all advertisements in their entirety and if an email address or URL] makes the advertisement misleading or deceptive, it violates the law. [Rule 535.155(b)(4) and TRELA §1101.652(b)(23)] 

 


GLAR Notice

Listing Agreement, Paragraph 6, must have a specific number rather than a range (see example below) as, like all contracts, it is an actionable field.  Since the list date can only be changed by NTREIS once the listing is made active,  NTREIS will use the date in Paragraph 4 plus the specific number in Paragraph 6A(b) to determine the MLS list date.

If the seller is not ready to have the listing in MLS by the date used, the listing agreement can be amended by using Amendment to Listing Agreement form.

Serious Heat Could Soon Break Records!

Is it hot enough for everyone?   Triple digits…good grief…this heat is extensive and potentially dangerous…keep yourself hydrated and as cool as possible.  I hope you keep plenty of water in your car for yourself and your clients when showing properties.  Heat index values may exceed 110 degrees at times and it doesn’t appear we are going to have relief for several days.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

 

The Buyer’s Obligation When Purchasing Property from a Foreign Seller

Pursuant to the Foreign Investment Real Property Tax Act (FIRPTA), Buyers in certain transactions involving foreign Sellers must withhold 10% of the amount realized by the foreign Seller for federal taxes. Usually, the amount realized is the sales price. If the sales price is greater than $300,000 or the Buyer has no plans to reside at the property, the Buyer should determine whether the Seller will realize any gain from the transaction, in other words, will the Seller walk away from closing with any money. If so, the requirement to withhold 10% of the amount realized applies. The Buyer should use IRS Form 8288 and IRS Form 8288-A to withhold the tax.

EXCEPTION: If the sales price is $300,000 or less and the Buyer or a member of the Buyer’s family will reside in the property at least 50% of the time during the first two years of ownership, then FIRPTA does not apply and no withholding of money is required.

Tech Tip of the Week

Referrals

Through your Kelle App and KW Connect you can grow your referral network as well as send and receive actual referrals. This tech tip is to give an overview of the actual referral process.

First, be sure to check Kelle (or KWConnect Referral page) often because if someone sends you a referral, it will have a time frame attached to it. You need to respond quickly in order to get the referral.

This video gives you an overview of how to send and receive referals. Kelle and KW Connect have had many features added since this video was created by KWRI, however it gives you  excellent step by step instruction on sending/receiving an actual referral.

After sending/receiving a referral, you will see this information displayed on your KW Connect “My Referrals” dashboard.

Note about your referrals dashboard:  to get there, go to  KWConnect, select the button “go to referrals”, you will see referrals that are “Awaiting Response”, “Inbound”, “Outbound” as well as other selections of expired, active, rejected, lost, funded.

Once you have initiated a referral, have it accepted through this system, then for now, you will still followup with a standard referral form like you have always done. Eventually this will most likely be more automated as well, but the cool thing is to be able to get the right agent, come to an agreement, quickly and easily through this system, then simply follow up with the form.

Fantastic Friday and Welcome to Rosemary’s Rubies!

I am back from my Alaskan cruise and it was nice to be welcomed back so warmly.  I missed my Dallas Metro North family but did not miss the Texas temperatures.  I am working through all emails and will respond as quickly as possible.  Thank you for your patience and feel free to stop by my office if you need something immediately.  
 
Wine Down Friday was moved to this afternoon so I would enjoy seeing everyone.  Please come join us in The Bistro at 4:00 p.m.  This is a time to come together as a work family and get to know each other better.

Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Listing dates must be completed on Listing Agreements

  A Listing Agreement must have a definite list date and expiration date when signed and is not valid using only “TBD” in paragraph 4.   The proper way to complete paragraph 4 is to have a date shown and you can modify with a listing amendment if the date needs to be extended.
