GNAR News – August 7, 2013

Thursday Tour 

Open Houses now in MLS each week

Support your fellow members by attending their scheduled open houses.  There are properties listed in MLS PIN to visit this week.  Search for Broker Open Houses (next three days).  The linear tour was replaced effective August 1, with an OH format.   The Open House Broker Tour  requires listings be entered in MLS for the Thursday Broker OH tour.

Please schedule as follows:

for properties outside Newburyport, these listings should be scheduled for the 11-12pm timeslot.  Newburyport properties should be scheduled during the 10-11am timeframe, since it is closer driving distance from most local offices as well as GNAR.  Anyone wanting to have their property open for two hours, may also do so. Open House Broker Luncheons should start no earlier than noon.
