FMLS Matrix 102: Working with CMAs, Statistics and Hotsheets
Gordon CE: Wednesday, September 9, 2015 | 8:30 am - 11:45 am

When preparing for a listing presentation, real estate professionals must be able to provide potential clients with the most current market knowledge, detailed information on recent sales activity and substantiate how this will help in the sale of their home. In this class, students will practice searching the Matrix listing database for comparable properties and recent sold information to create 2 types of CMAs (comparative market analysis): a quick one-page CMA as well as a fully detailed CMA presentation utilizing the CMA Wizard. Students will analyze and customize the content of the CMA report, as well as practice how to save, view, email and manage their CMAs through the CMA history. Students will also explore statistics for properties and generate various charts and graphs based on that statistical information. Students will also create personalized Hotsheet reports which will allow them to see a snap shot of activity based on criteria relevant to their particular business needs. Students will leave with the knowledge needed to prepare a comprehensive CMA to assist in competitively pricing their customer' home. Students will also leave with the skillset to create statistical and Hotsheet reports relevant to their business needs. CE certified by FMLS Institute.

FCC Approves Net Neutrality Rules
Federal

On Thursday, February 26 the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) approved new "net neutrality" rules, which gives the Commission strong legal authority to regulate broadband providers more heavily than in the past and restrict their power to control download speeds on the web. The new rules ban Internet providers from blocking or slowing any traffic and from striking deals with content companies, known as paid prioritization, for smoother delivery of traffic to consumers. The new rules are a victory for consumers, and for REALTORS® who embrace technology and online resources to meet the needs of their clients.
