ASAP = As soon as Possible (actually within two business days)...
SRAR = Southland Regional Association of Realtors and their RockStars – Becky, Margaret and Kayla…
Welcome everyone to SCV661.com and I’m Connor Macivor, friend to the working person 🙂
Today, I wanted to touch on something that comes up way too often. While there maybe violations which have occurred, when the timeframe is not adhered to, it’s really hard to prove and creates issues between agents and their clients.
The bigger part is the ‘creates issues between agents and their clients’.
Unless you, as a Realtor, lay out the rules to your client before they encounter the “not updated” real estate listing.
Before I get into the Meat of this Article about Rule 10.2 with the Southland Regional Association of Realtors, I want to give Credit to the Power Houses within the local SRAR – Board of Realtors in Santa Clarita Valley.
Becky – the awesome. Margaret – the wonderful and Kayla – the fantastic!!!
Three ladies who are worth gold in value to the SRAR membership.
Here is how this goes down. When I was a LAPD cop, we had roll call. The sheriff’s call their ‘pre watch’ meeting a Briefing – it’s fundamentally the same thing.
The watch commander, and his underling, covered the activity in the local division and spoke about what the officers should be on the lookout for. If there was a local criminal who was doing a fair amount of criminal activity and needed extra attention – that was spoken about by the investigating detective and or officer who’d show up to speak with the entire watch at roll call.
We treat real estate with our clients like a roll call or deputy briefing. Along with “Be careful out there”, I’m all about educating our clients.
Violation of Rule 10.2 SRAR:
My clients are being sent homes and real estate listings directly from the Multiple Listing Service, which Zillow and Trulia do not have access to – fyi.
When they see something they like, they contact me. I then need to speak with the listing agent to ensure my questions are answered to best protect my client. As a quick aside – I’m also actively searching for homes and real estate for everyone of my clients!
If the listing agent has an accepted offer on the listing in question, and has not updated the Multiple Listing Service with the Southland Regional Association of Realtors within two business days, they are in violation of rule 10.2 of the “Rules”.
If it’s before the two business day time period elapses, and they have an accepted offer, but have not yet updated the MLS system with the SRAR – they are not in violation.
I could be a snitch and nark on them if the time frame was exceeded – but that’s not me.
However, what is me would be calling them on it personally and chastising them in the name of all that is good – and of course my clients.
This stuff happens – the cleanest location to search for homes and real estate is going to be on a system that is fed directly by the Multiple Listing Service. The other websites you will find online, Zillow and Trulia being examples, are entertainment in nature and will sell your personal and private information for money. That is your last FYI 🙂
Have a great day and for our MLS search engine – we have our’s placed at SCVnest.com.
