Help Snow Birds Prepare For Their Flights South

When I was growing up I was very close to my grandparents. We would spend weeks at a time on Cape Cod with Nana and Grandpa with the JJ (that was their dog’s name, JJ.) It was a wonderful thing to spend so much time with my grandparents and I truly enjoyed every minute of it. Then, all of a sudden, they would be gone for a few months in the winter. They headed down to Florida to enjoy the warmth and sand of the Sunshine State. They were what you would call snow birds. Thinking back on it from a real estate perspective it must have been awfully hard for them to find a place to spend a few Continue Reading

The kids are heading back to school and with the first snowflakes set to fly only months from now what better time then today is there to consider securing your piece of the Sunshine State.

Turns out it actually has quite a lot to do with CTMLS. You see with our new product Data Co-Op you can search listings in from Florida all Continue Reading

CTMLS Chooses Not To Adopt RPR At This Time

After careful review and consideration of the REALTOR® Property Resource (RPR) and other similar products, the CTMLS Board of Directors has decided not to adopt RPR at this time. CTMLS Services vs. RPR: When comparing RPR to the products and services CTMLS already offers (especially the statewide tax data, foreclosure data, REO, and short sale data) it became clear that CTMLS’ Realist data was both more accurate and more frequently updated than what RPR currently provides. Our conclusion was confirmed by multiple other MLSs that have adopted RPR, but found it fell short of their expectations. WHAT THIS MEANS FOR CTMLS MEMBERS: As a product of the National Association of REALTORS® and paid for by your REALTOR® dues dollars, Read Continue Reading
