Dear Member,

Please register today for next week's important presentation from MLSListings, Inc. President and CEO, David Wetzel, with Director of Professional Development, Mark Messimer.

Please also register for C.A.R. Legislative Day, April 27, to meet directly via Zoom with your local elected representative.

Additionally, C.A.R.'s STEPS Toward Homeownership program is hosting a virtual event on April 7, free to members. In two hours get all the resources you need to help your clients achieve homeownership.

Please note MCAR will close at 12:00pm on Friday, April 2.

Finally, please be advised that beginning on Monday, April 5, MCAR will be available for curbside services by appointment Monday through Thursday from 7am-5pm and on Friday from 7am-4pm.

According to the latest C.A.R. consumer survey, over half of all renters in California think you need at least 20 percent down to purchase a home. And we're one week out from helping you show your clients why this isn't true!

The reality is there are programs available that enable a purchase with a much lower down payment. Our STEPS program provides you with the necessary info on credit scores, financial planning, leveraging down payment resources and options for low- to moderate-income earners to educate your buyers. And we're bringing it to you virtually next week on April 7, for free!
