Our next RESO event venue gave us a memorable weekend (and lovely bit of promotion) at the PGA Championship in what culminated in a great day for lefties. Certifications slowed down, but we’re ready for more. Liz Tewksbury from Homesnap never slows down, as profiled this week on our blog. And, finally, we’re really doing it this time. We’re going to wrap new standards around Days on Market. Read on!

DOM Business Descriptions Subgroup | May 20, 2021
This was the kickoff meeting for creating standard definitions for the five flavors of Days on Market (DOM). The group delved into what start/stop times and dates actually mean for each DOM flavor, including timestamps, contract dates, listing exclusivity, status of DOM during pending sale and more. Guidelines were established around prefacing each DOM flavor with the word “Standard,” it was determined that a contract’s listing date would be used over timestamps for calculating DOM and that the time off MLS is off market unless otherwise specified. | VIEW CALL NOTES
