During the election cycle in the United States, attention had been focused on the large amounts of cash politicians were raising for their respective campaigns and, more importantly, where that money is coming from.
Well, the answer is simple – A LOT.
For the most part – from people or organizations who favor the opinions and ideology of a specific candidate.
As REALTORS®, we have our favorite candidates – and that’s why we have the national REALTOR® Political Action Committee (RPAC) to protect our interests and support candidates who publicly support the American Dream of home ownership.
Many of you have generously supported RPAC over the years and understand the important of doing so. Some have contributed more than others, and that’s okay.
But the work of RPAC and of the REALTOR® Party is important in so many ways, and it can and does actively help us all in our businesses.
Here are a few ways how:
There are just a few of the ways contributing to RPAC can help your business locally, and can help further the REALTOR® cause regionally and nationally.

With 2016 rapidly coming to a close, it’s time to begin planning for the blank slate and new challenges that always come when the calendar turns to January 1.
With the real estate markets around the country now fully recovered from the recession of a few years ago, certain trends have begun developing that are driving the market anew. Some of these trends began in 2016 or earlier, but others are just now coming to the surface.
So let’s examine a few of the things that experts say to be on the lookout for in 2017:
So there are a few trends that experts are expecting to either occur or continue in 2017. Trends change every year, of course, and each market is different (think coastal) but these are things worth watching for in the next calendar year.
Did you know that the RPR app is an awesome value of your SCAOR membership? Why, you ask? Because RPR’s app is like no other found in the real estate industry.
Here are three reasons why the app should become your go-to-tool:
By the way, we’ve created a cool infographic that highlights the features of the app’s commercial mode. Check it out!
On Wednesday, November 9th, 2016, SCAOR invited the CEO of TREND MLS to give an update on Bright MLS. If you missed the meeting, you can watch the entire presentation online here (Includes some of the Q&A segment at the end):
A study conducted recently by the National Association of REALTORS® revealed that the most important thing sellers wanted from their real estate agents is to “help them market their home to potential buyers.” Obvious, huh?
But apparently, enough agents around the country are not performing well enough in this area, and that’s a concern for sellers. Sure, you list the home on the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), put a sign in the yard and start spreading the word about this great new listing that you have – certainly, these are all things you should be doing.
But there’s so much more that you can (and should!) do for your clients when marketing and promoting their homes. These include social media marketing, online referrals and many more.
Today, we want to focus on the “Three Ps” that you should always keep in mind when marketing your clients’ properties.
And they are:
Remember – Our clients put a lot of faith in us to get their homes sold, so let’s go the extra mile and show them 1) that we care and 2) we can get the job done.
