GAR Contract Changes for 2012

Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Community Partners

We just completed our 2012 GAR (Georgia Association of Realtors) contract class.

Every year we go through this class as GAR continually refines our contracts. Every change helps our buyers and sellers and the amount of protection we offer them in their real estate transaction.

The biggest change to the GAR contracts is in reference to access to the actual contracts. Starting this month there some new procedures in place.

Real estate agents, who are members of the National association of Realtors and GAR, will continue to have full access to all GAR forms.

However if an agent is not a member of GAR, they will have to pay an annual subscription fee in order to access the GAR contracts.

The last option is that an agent can us non GAR contracts that will be available on both of the Atlanta area listing services FMLS and GAMLS. As this time those contracts will be available on a limited basis.

Bottom line: Real Estate agents in the state of Georgia are not required to be a member of the GAR or NAR. The Wells Team, of The Norton Agency, chooses to be members of these very important organizations. NAR provides us with a code of ethics, access to information, and training that allows us to provide the best service possible. Full access to the GAR contracts just solidifies our position a little more.
