Consumers are finding new ways to obtain real estate information online, which can be detrimental if it’s not accurate, and may change how they see the value of a REALTOR®. It also puts consumers at risk for cyber security issues. Technology has also changed what consumers are looking for in a home. At Tech Byte 2017, you will learn how to protect yourself and consumers from inaccurate information online and potential cyber scams, and understand the smart home technology demand.

Limited seats, folks. Registration is now open

"A favorable economy has kept buyers active amidst a summer of stiff competition that has led prices upward and often over the asking price. The latest recorded national unemployment rate of 4.3 is historically low and has served as a general indicator of a strong economy. If wage growth shifts into overdrive from its current state of patient increases, we may see even higher prices or, conversely, more willingness by sellers to increase the inventory pool." | MORE
