I was not surfing the web yesterday.
I had not heard the news.
I missed the announcement that the lawsuit against NAR (National Association of Realtors) by the DOJ (Department of Justice) is over...
After posting an entry I "Googled" for Columbus + NAR to see if ALL of the local real estate bloggers scooped me.
Did you mean: Columbus + NEAR

No, I really meant Columbus and NAR, National Association of Realtors.
5 minutes ago? I posted "National Association of Realtors " within the hour. Google picks up ColumbusBestBlog.com (my other blog) quick..
Thanks to William Johnson on ActiveRain for the heads up (I was not surfing the web yesterday...) NAR Settles Lawsuit with Justice Dept William's post is Members Only... no big secrets, he's talking to his peers... I linked to the same CNNMoney article Willam did.
Columbus and CLOSE UP
Real estate is local. The scoop is only a little blurb in our local news, the Columbus Dispatch. It is in the news briefs. I'm sure they will cover the story locally soon, quoting local folk about what it will mean for us (agents, brokerages, consumers.) It will be interesting to see if it changes real estate locally.
N is for National
I have not even gone to see what NAR has to say about the settlement yet.
NAR, the National Association of Realtors, is a trade organization. The DOJ lawsuit against NAR was about IDX and VOW as I recall....don't know what IDX is or VOW read about it on CBB I mean ColumbusBestBlog.com Thanks.
