First, Laura Graber will be at our office this Friday at 2:00P offering MLS training.  Hope you can attend.

Second, thanks for your efforts in keeping up with the document requests at the front desk. Our files look good and the machine seems to be working very well.

Third, I have had about 30+ inquiries for the front desk positions. I will be calling those who initially qualify in for interviews in the coming weeks so we'll see how that goes.

Fourth, I have recently read an article from Peg Ritenour of OAR about taking photos of listings when we are showing homes to buyers and issues related to privacy.  It seems that agents and potential buyers will post pictures of these properties without permission which is causing problems.  We have not experienced any issues with this but I thought I would pass along as it seems like an innocent act could go awry with the wrong person.

Lastly, I have run in to home improvement forms and the like that show year improvements occured, age of appliances, utility costs and etc.  One of the things I have noticed on these forms and in MLS descriptions is general statements such as, "Updated plumbing" or "New electrical".  These statements are far reaching and should be avoided as they can be misconstrued by portential buyers.  If an electrical service has been updated it would be best to state what was updated verses broad statements that can mislead someone in to believing that all or most of the electrical has been updated.  Example: Electrcial panel and service entrance were updated to 100 amps.  I am always happy to help with this stuff so please ask. 

Onward & upward,
