2011 REALTORS® Technology Survey

The Center for REALTOR® Technology is surveying NAR members to get a good picture of how the industry uses technology for social networking, lead generation, and other ways to build business. The more responses the better the data. Please take the survey, which can be completed in a few minutes. Participants can win one of four $50 VISA gift cards. Deadline is September 20, and results will be posted online for you to access.

Oil Tank Upgrades Required by 9/30/11

By September 30, 2011, you must upgrade your home heating system equipment to prevent leaks from tanks and pipes that connect to your furnace. By making a relatively small expenditure now, you can prevent a much greater expense in the future.

Massachusetts has a new law to address oil leaks from home heating systems (Chapter 453 of the Acts of 2008, as most recently amended in 2010). This law has two major provisions that require:

  • the installation of either an oil safety valve or an oil supply line with protective sleeve on systems that do not currently have these devices; and
  • insurance companies that write homeowner policies to offer coverage for leaks from heating systems that use oil.

NAR – CALL TO ACTION – Loan Limit Caps

FHA and conforming loan limits face expiration on September 30.   Without congressional action, the limits will drop from 125 percent to 115 percent of the area median home price. That will impact more than 593 counties in 42 states. The loan-limit cap will also drop, from $729,750 to $625,500. Immediate action is critical, because lawmakers are scheduled to consider legislation with the loan limit extension this week. If you have not yet responded to the Call for Action, use this link to the REALTOR® Action Center  to send a letter in just a couple of clicks.
