My Town: Salem, Connecticut - 01/13/07 06:55 PM
Caleb Mardini posted a suggestion that we blog about our own towns, and I think it's a great idea! Salem is in southeastern CT, just north of East Lyme, next to East Haddam on the west and Montville and Norwich on the east and south. With 29 square miles, it's still got a rural character to it, even though it's only about half an hour to the state capital of Hartford, and less than that to New London and Groton, where the naval submarine base is. With a population of about 4000 people and 1300 + residences, we're pretty small, but that's one (4 comments)
CB Agent from Connecticut - 01/13/07 11:18 AM
Hi, I just wanted to say hi to my fellow CB agents in this group. I live and work in Southeastern Connecticut, near but not on the shore. Right now, we're getting used to the new statewide MLS that started on Jan. 10, and I'm definitely still on the learning curve. The system is a slightly different variation of one that was in place for the region next to ours. We've all used that one once in a while, but not often enough to really be comfortable with it. It's interesting, to say the least. People have asked me if any other states (6 comments)
We Made It Through The Rain - 01/10/07 06:27 PM
. . . the CTMLS "rain", that is. After a couple of frustrating days in Eastern Connecticut and our old system (Aris), we're finally integrated (mostly) into the statewide MLS. Well, statewide except for a part of the western end of the state that isn't ready to get down and dirty with the rest of us commonfolk. But for the most part, I can look all over the state now and see what's on the market, from the comfort of a single MLS. No more multiple systems, different logins, different passwords. Progress is a wonderful thing. (12 comments)
Changing to a statewide MLS - 01/09/07 06:26 AM
In a couple of days,here in Connecticut, our current regional MLS will be pretty much null and void, except as a holding tank for listings that have yet to be transferred to the new, supposedly better CTMLS. Right now, if you Google "CTMLS" you get a page with Google ads for real estate in lots of places in California. . . Well, that's about right, actually, because trying to get anything in Connecticut right now is impossible on our MLS. In Eastern CT, agents have been spending the day trying to get into the old system, which we will have until the end (7 comments)
