Searching for that Vacation home?

Image
I just read a report from (NAR) National Association of Realtors and Google called The Digital House Hunt-Consumer and Market Trends in Real Estate.  One of the trends I noted was the number of vacation shoppers that in fact do shop online for that second home.


South Carolina was listed as one of the Vacation Home category searches!!!
This is another reason to make sure you are out there marketing online!!!   Are you using video?  According to the report - Finding an agent and agent related searches on YouTube grew 46% year-over-year.

On Tuesday April 9, 2013 I had the opportunity along with our local Association to travel to Columbia and Lobby for Homeowner and Property Rights.





 The key legislative issues facing the Realtors this year are:

Bill H. 3771 - (summary of the bill ) A BILL TO AMEND SECTION 40-57-40, AS AMENDED, CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, RELATING TO THE MEMBERSHIP OF THE SOUTH CAROLINA REAL ESTATE COMMISSION, SO AS TO DETAIL PROCEDURES FOR APPOINTING THE SEVEN COMMISSIONERS WHO REPRESENT THE SEVEN CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICTS, AND TO PROVIDE THE DEPARTMENT OF LABOR, LICENSING AND REGULATION SHALL DESIGNATE CERTAIN PERSONNEL FOR THE EXCLUSIVE USE OF THE COMMISSION, TO PROHIBIT THE DEPARTMENT FROM ASSIGNING OTHER WORK TO THESE PERSONNEL WITHOUT APPROVAL OF THE COMMISSION, AND TO PROVIDE THESE PERSONNEL ONLY MAY BE TERMINATED BY THE DIRECTOR.

 Did you know that the fees we pay to the LLR ( licensing fees ) are not kept by the Real Estate Commission !!!! They are dispersed throughout the entire LLR …
