January Board Report
Meeting of the Board of Directors January 20, 2017
Finance Committee: The 2016 books are currently in audit and the report for the period ending December 31, 2016 will be presented in March at the annual meeting March 24, 2017.
Nominating Committee: No nominations by petition have been received. Ballots will be mailed to the membership Friday, February 10, 2017.
Rapattoni Updates: Several recent enhancements to the Interactive Map Search, including the addition of a polygon map search, the ability to select default status settings, and a “days back” option which allows the user to choose the number of days back a search will run by default for each of the selected statuses has been added.
SUPRA Auto-Assigning of Lockboxes: As of February 1st, BAREIS will enable SUPRA’s Keybox Assist, which uses GPS to assist a listing agent with assigning the lockbox serial number to an MLS listing.
Data Share Reports: An analysis of the data share log-ins for 2016 indicates BAREIS members use the MetroList® system more than the other MLSs in the data share, and more users come into BAREIS from MetroList® and EastBay than from SFAR and MLSListings®.
Data Accuracy: The number of citations issued for listing violations fell 84% in 2016 compared to 2015 and 96% compared to 2014. The number of corrections made has remained consistent from year to year. This decline in citations is a reflection of BAREIS’ efforts to assist members in achieving listing accuracy rather than fining for listing errors.
