FREE Registration: Smart Growth Conference
What if we build what consumers want?
Let's talk about homes, school & transportation choices in Hinds, Madison & Rankin counties.
Nate Johnson, NAR Trainer, wants to teach us how to approach Smart Growth and how to use smart development that will encourage a mix of building types and uses in our local communities.

The 10 principles of Smart Growth are:
mixed land use, compact design, housing choices, walkable neighborhoods, attractive communities, open spaces, development of existing communities, fair and cost-effective development, and stakeholder collaboration.

REALTORS "Move the Vote" 
CMR has just launched a new voter registration campaign, "Central Mississippi REALTORS® Move the Vote!" Today, there are nearly 80,000 unregistered voters in Hinds, Madison & Rankin. Here's how you can help:
"I'm not going to present your offer since it doesn't include a pre-qualification letter."
Sure you are.  To be in compliance with both license law and the Code of Ethics all written offers MUST be presented.  A seller might want a pre-qualification letter as a prerequisite to accepting an offer, but a listing agent can't refuse to present an offer because it doesn't contain the letter.  And further, the listing agent can't refuse to present an offer that contains language the listing agent believes the seller might not accept.  All offers must be presented.
