When one agent writes an offer for two or more different buyers at the same time on the same property the rules have changed on how to handle.  This ARTICLE explains the rules in a general way.  The article was written before the law was passed so hoping a more detailed article will be forthcoming.  Thanks, BGW

Seller occupying after closing..

The above topic has been raised on a couple occasions and so I contacted my insurance person to look in to it.  It is best that the seller maintain their homeowner's insurance after closing up until they move out so they are covered on their contents and for liability purposes.  If they will be staying longer than approximately 14 days (extended time such as 30 days or 60 days) they should have a renter's policy.  Thanks, BGW

Cooperating compensation..

posted Apr 11, 2016, 12:58 PM by Brian G. Walsh   [ updated Apr 11, 2016, 12:58 PM ]

Recently I read an article that discussed above.  In the NEOHREX system whether we be in CRIS or NORMLS we do not need to be concerned about being protected in terms of cooperating compensation.  If we sell something in CRIS we are obligated to be paid per the rules.  However, if you sell something In Firelands you are not.  In other words, if you show and sell something they can refuse cooperating compensation because we are not a part of their MLS.  I have not run in to this and can't imagine why someone would not cooperate but thought you should know that it is not just a given that because we are all REALTORS that you can assume you will be compensated.  On the occasion that you might show something you can ask for written confirmation from listing agent before showing it.  I don't believe we have to worry about most agents for two reasons:  1) Most don't even know about this.  2) Most would gladly cooperate.  Thank you.

Be careful..

Yesterday, one of our sellers had some of their personal belongings stolen.  An agent working with a buyer showed their home and the buyer unlocked the front door and came back immediately after leaving the property and went in and took belongings.  The owner caught the person and they fled the scene.  The showing agent was told by buyer that they were buying cash and needed to find something right away.  Fortunately the owner was able to get the license plate.
