MLS Fees Due 

Members: Your 3rd Quarter MLS fee has been billed to your account and is due by June 30, 2018. Please log in and submit payment if you have not yet done so. 

If you need additional assistance here is a link to a video we created that walks you through the process step by step and also shows you how to set up auto-pay if you choose to do so. 

Please note that if the fee is not paid by the due date, your MLS access will be suspended, and a $25 late fee will be applied. Once payment is submitted, there are no refunds.

Weekly Market Activity Report
"Sales across the nation have risen not only because this time of year typically offers an increase in residential real estate activity, but because this year in particular has proven to have strong economic and market conditions. While it's still true that prices are rising and inventory is tightening, these long-standing trends have been happening gradually enough to not deter those who are serious about becoming homeowners."

CALL FOR ACTION: Reauthorize the NFIP 
The National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) will expire on July 31, denying necessary insurance coverage to homeowners and buyers in more than 20,000 communities nationwide. Congress must act now to reform and extend the NFIP.
Urge Congress to extend the NFIP and pass meaningful reforms to ensure long-term viability of the program
