Steve Spano, president and chief operating officer of the Center for Internet Security, recently visited NAR’s Washington offices to discuss techniques real estate professionals can employ to stay safe online. Listen to his comments below.
MLS History in the United Kingdom. In the 1980s and early/mid 1990s agents did work together much like the early U.S. and Canadian realtors via paper-based forms which had tick-boxes offering a listing from one agent to sub-agents. Attached would be the property details pre-agreed with the owner for correctness, a photographic negative of photo; later a similar procedure was carried out by email and graphic computer file. Agents involved could copy and process the paper- or email-based property data. The main agent was treated as the vendor; all sales progression went through her and commission was split upon completion.
Err on the side of being pushy and tenacious, even if that isn’t your normal style. That way if the initial sale does fall through, you’ll be the obvious next bid. Be available for phone calls, check your email, and follow up with your agent often.
“We cannot think of anything Leslie could have done better in the sale of my late father’s home. While his home was beautiful and in a fantastic location, it was very dated and we live 400 miles away. Leslie knew the local market, gave us a realistic opinion of the value and put a lot of time and thought into what our priorities needed to be in order to sell the house quickly. She respected our thoughts and concerns throughout the process. The contractors she recommended for the updates did a great job. We have never had a real estate agent keep us as up to date as Leslie did. As closing approached, she went out of her way to assist us in tracking down the necessary documentation and signatures which was a huge help as we work and are so far away from Brevard. The most important things to me were that she was a pleasure to interact with and we came to trust her more and more as time went on.”
In 2018, an official observed another possible housing bubble in the making. There were 250,000 housing units for a population of 580,000, ample for their needs. The population is not growing rapidly, new housing is being constructed. Nevertheless, prices are surging.
If—and only if—you’re financially comfortable, you could consider offering more than the asking price. But you can also try presenting convenient terms to the seller. Maybe you want to agree to waive a mortgage contingency, pay closing costs, or offer flexible moving dates. Being open to negotiation is one of the best things you can do to improve your odds, Malin notes.

A person selling his/her own property – acting as a For sale by owner (or FSBO) seller – cannot generally put a listing for the home directly into an MLS. Similarly, a licensed broker who chooses to neither join the trade association nor operate a business within the association’s rules, cannot join most MLSes. However, there are brokers and many online services which offer FSBO sellers the option of listing their property in their local MLS database by paying a flat fee or another non-traditional compensation method.

In 2010 a local group compared the county against four other “peer” cities: Austin, Texas, Colorado Springs, Colorado, Huntsville, Alabama, and Raleigh, North Carolina. It evaluated nine areas: business dynamism/vitality, competitiveness, education, economic growth, economic prosperity, livability, productivity/labor supply, technology and innovation/work force. While the county does well against national figures, and scored high in livability, it usually ranked last against these “peers” in the other eight areas.
