Not following showing instructions could be a violation of the code of ethics. When a property is shown by “appointment,” always make an appointment. Public trust, your safety, and the safety of your clients must be your priority. If you see a lockbox, you may not use it without permission if an appointment is required - even if you have been there in the past and know it isn’t occupied. Catching a homeowner off guard can get you shot! Also, there may be an alarm code that is needed. Some sellers expect notice of a showing even on vacant properties. Remember that you can use a CBS (Call Before Showing) code on your lockboxes when placing them on occupied listings.  -Lesha Freeland, Keller Williams 4550100

Legislative Session Updates

Update on SB 162: SB 162, the Louisiana Incentives and Workforce Housing Act, failed to make it out of House Commerce Committee last Tuesday, May 31. After much intense debate, we fell short by one vote. This means the bill will not advance any further during this legislative session. A call for action went out before the Memorial Day weekend to all REALTORS® across the state, and only 3% of members took action. NOMAR urges all members to take action quickly when a Call for Action is put out by NOMAR, LR, or NAR. Please make sure you are signed up to receive calls for action by texting REALTORS to 30644 or by signing up online here . 

Special Session Begins This Week: The 2017 regular legislative session will adjourn this Thursday, June 8. Immediately following adjournment the legislature will reconvene for its second special session this year. The focus of this session will be on the state budget and avoiding the fiscal cliff. NOMAR will continue to post relevant information throughout the special session here and on our website.

If you have any questions about the regular or special session, please contact NOMAR Governmental Affairs.

If an agent tries to deny it was them, the proof is in your lockbox! -Trinity Keller, NOLA Living Realty

Keep your MLS status up to date. "Don't have your MLS listing show as 'active' when you have an accepted offer on a property. Not only is it against the MLS Rules, it is time-consuming to talk to the buyer about the property, handle their excitement, and finally track down the listing agent only to hear, 'It is under contract". This is very inconsiderate of a listing agent and diminishes our credibility with our buyers." - Josie DeGrusha, RE/MAX Affiliates
