GMAR WEEKLY UPDATES
LEGAL UPDATE LIVE: TODAY AT 10AM

In this episode, WRA attorneys Jennifer Lindsley and Cori Lamont will dispel rumors and educate you about how the new law affects home inspection reports and how it may impact the day-to-day practices of home inspectors and your real estate practice. This episode will provide an overview of the legislation, from how the new law requires a summary page to what must be included in the new summary page as well as how a home inspector who identifies a defect during the inspection is now required to label that item as a defect in the inspection report. You'll gain insight into what the new law changes mean for your buyers and sellers and whether the legislation impacts how the parties negotiate.

Register to watch live at 10am or wait for the recording to be available through the WRA.
SENTRILOCK CREDENTIALING PROCESS
83% of GMAR Members Have SentriLock Credentials. Do you?
 
In this crazy market, many listing agents don’t have time to give out one-day codes. Help your buyers, get credentialed, and get in that house!
 
The best part is there is no additional cost, because it’s part of your dues.
 
Get credentialed in 20-minutes in 4 steps:
 
  1. Email Emily Simonelli for instructions
  2. Read and sign the User Agreement.
  3. Get an activation email from SentriLock to set up your password and PIN
  4. The GMAR will send over training videos.
 
Don’t want to use SentriLock lockboxes on your listings, fine, but get credentialed anyway so you can download the SentriKey Real Estate app onto your phone and access listings that do utilize SentriLock boxes.
 
Please remember, one-day codes can be denied to any member of the GMAR, because the credentialing process so easy.
