REALTORS® to gain free transaction management system and electronic forms via zipLogix

Realtor magazine mastIn the first quarter of 2016, REALTORS® will receive free use of a transaction management system and electronic forms through zipLogix, thanks to a vote by the NAR board of directors Monday at the NAR REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Diego.

The new benefit – which includes unlimited document storage – is designed to save REALTORS® time and money. Once IAR and your local association license their forms libraries to zipLogix, members will be able to access them, too.

IAR is in the process of working with zipLogix to provide the forms the association makes available as a member benefit.

Individual members who purchased zipForm® Plus on or after Oct. 1, 2015 will be able to request a prorated refund by calling zipLogix.

Today’s the day for associations to meet NAR core standards

Today marks the deadline for a national effort to have local and state REALTOR® associations meet a set of standards for service to members.

The NAR’s Organizational Alignment Core Standards outlines requirements that associations must meet, ranging from attention to the REALTOR® Code of Ethics, financial reporting and consumer outreach.

IAR has been working with local associations statewide to help them meet the deadline.

The majority of the state’s associations has submitted and received approval from NAR, or is well on its way to meeting the deadline. Three local associations determined they would merge with other organizations as part of the Core Standards process.

For more information on the core standards, read the NAR Board of Directors document that summarizes changes made on May 17, 2014, check the Frequently Asked Questions or the compliance tool.
