USPAP Cruise?

Trouble Collecting Your Fees
No one likes to do a job and not get paid for it. There are some things you can do to prevent that from happening.
FREE State Exam Prep Practice Tests
AREA will be launching a series of low cost exam prep online practice tests designed to help you pass the state exams. To celebrate, we are offering a FREE 50-question appraisal exam prep practice test and study guide and a FREE 50-question real estate sales exam practice test and study guide.
FMLS Lock Box Access Update
This month all non-agents, appraisers, home inspectors, and other professionals involved in the typical real estate deal, will be finding it a little harder to use their Supra Key for property access. FMLS issued a new policy and these professionals must now obtain a CBS code (Call Before Showing code) from the listing agent before accessing the property or they will not be able to use their lockbox Supra key.
Real Estate Market Activity – FREE Statistical Reports
Ever wonder how agents get all their data about recent sales in your neighborhood? It is prepared for them and it is FREE.
Do You WIKI?
