August 2016 Board Report

Meeting of the Board of Directors August 19, 2016

    Duplicate Listing Policy:    The Directors approved a change in the duplicate listing policy that will allow duplicate listings for properties that qualify for both Residential and Multi Unit 2-4 Property Types or Residential and Lots & Land Property Types. The listing agent will be responsible for reporting the sale of the listing that best reflects the buyers intended use of the property. The Rules Committee will review BAREIS MLS® Regulations and will recommend any necessary revisions to the rules that will allow these duplicate listings into the system.

Team Names:
  The Board considered a request to allow all members who belong to a sales “team” to appear not as individual members in the MLS, but only as a team; so listings and sales will be reported only under the Team ID rather than the MLS ID of the individual team members. After discussion, the Directors took no action on this item.

    Innovation Task Force:  The task force compared TrendGraphics, the statistical program currently offered with BAREIS MLS®, to MarketStats by ShowingTime. After watching a demonstration of each, the task force did not recommend changing statistical products.  The group will review CMA and Auto Prospecting products at future meetings.

    Broker Breakfast Meetings:
BAREIS MLS® will continue to host breakfast meetings for brokers and managers throughout our various counties in August, September & October.

    Rapattoni Updates:  Rapattoni is making adjustments to the system that will improve system performance.

    Rapattoni Edge App:  The Edge app is now available for downloading. This mobile MLS app runs hotsheets, allows members to revise listings and upload photos from their mobile devices, and syncs contacts & carts from the desktop MLS. Once members have installed the app and logged in, they will remain logged in for 30 days.

    HomeSpotter Mobile App:    More than 25% of BAREIS MLS® members have downloaded the HomeSpotter for BAREIS MLS® mobile app.

ZipForms SSO: Link to ZipForms from BAREIS MLS® homepage is in development.
