5 Things You Should Know (News Roundup - 6/6)

Services for Real Estate Pros with PropertyMinder, Inc.


1. Group temporarily bans real estate signs to improve town.

         What you should do: 
         - Make sure you have a strong online presence. Who knows when a sign ban may creep
           into your neck of the woods? 

2. Who controls the data that fuels real estate deals?

       What you should do: 
       - Provide your sellers and buyers with all of the real estate info they need to make responsible
         decisions (remember we just purchased a server that houses the largest MLS photos)!

3. Real estate headache: Baby boomers who won't sell their homes.

       What you should do:
       - Keep reminding folks what their home is worth (Baby Boomers included). You never know
         what increase in the value if their home will make them want to potentiall sell (with YOU).


4. California congressman who lost endorsement of NAR for pro-discrimination comments advances to     the general election in November.

       What you should do: 
       - Take note of anti-discrimination laws in your area. And, irrespective of where you stand, VOTE.

5. First-Timer FAQ: How Do Real Estate Commissions Work?

        What you should do:
        - Is this how you determine your commission(s)? If not, re-evaluate how you handle things.

Interesting story about real estate signs. We have subdivisions in Charlotte that restrict the type of signs you can use, but outside of some condo communities it's rare they are banned outright.

As for baby boomers not selling their homes... add my name to that list (and I, by the way am an early baby boomer and hate the assumptions people make about how those of us of a certain age should start downsizing).

I was pretty surprised about the ban myself, Nina Hollander. And hey, when it comes to downsizing or any potential change of living arrangement(s), my attitude has been and always will be as the old saying goes: "if it ain't broke, don't fix it."   Thanks so much for swinging by, reading, and commenting. Always great to hear from you. - Tim
