Light Bulb Agent Tips

Agent Tip of the Week! 

Can you practice real estate transactions outside of residential?  

flagThis question has actually come up twice this week.flag

Referring to our Independent Contractor Agreement, Paragraph 2 G:
Limited authority. Contractor agrees that its authorization from Licensee is strictly limited to residential real estate activities, such as listing, selling, and leasing real properties. Contractor may not engage in any: commercial, REO, short sales, property management, or other real estate transactions that require advanced proficiency or education (collectively, “Complex Transactions”), without the express written approval of both Contractor’s team leader and of Licensee prior to participating in such Complex Transactions.
If you are interested in practicing real estate transactions outside of residential, i.e. Commercial, Property Management, etc., please see me before engaging in any complex transactions or transactions that require advanced training.  We want to help you be proficient so you can assist your clients while limiting liability and providing expert client representation.



GLAR Notice

DOM – Did you Know?

How do I reset the CDOM field?

A listing must be Cancelled, Sold or Expired for at least 30 calendar days before putting back in to the MLS (under ANY status).  Entry as incoming or coming soon before day 31 will cause the system to pick up the days on market from the previous listing.

How are Days on Market Calculated?
Days On Market (DOM) are calculated in Matrix based on the List Date and Contract Date… but only once the listing status is changed to Pending
Since NTREIS describes any listing with Active in the status as available for showings and back up contracts, the DOM continue to count until it is made Pending which indicates it is no longer available to show and the seller is not taking any further offers. NTREIS MLS STATUSES
When a status is changed from A/AO/AC/AK directly to sold the system does not calculate the DOM based on the contract date.  When the listing goes to pending then sold it queues the system to stop counting DOM –  and go back to the list date/contract date and recalculate.  To keep accurate DOM, the listing needs to move to pending first before sold.  
While the tendency is to keep a listing ‘open’ as long as possible in case something falls through, doing so skews the DOM.
Keep in mind that once the seller accepts a back up offer, the listing should then be changed to pending in the MLS since the seller cannot accept another offer (remember there is no such thing as multiple backups).  Advertising the listing as available for showing and/or offers through an AC/AK status is misleading once a back up is in place.  
If the status is contingent upon an action, but there is a valid executed back up, it is no longer available unless the original contract falls out and the back up moves to first position.  The MLS status can then be changed from Pending to AC/AK per the new contract – again soliciting showings and other back up offers.
DOM affects everything from the listing itself, to CMAs, market reports and agent stats. Best practice suggests that the listing be edited to pending no later than the evening before or the morning of closing and then edit to SOLD after the closing.  This allows the system to go through the program correctly to re-calculate the DOM.
