USPAP

What the Heck Is USPAP?

For appraisers, it’s the foundation that undergirds every property appraisal assignment.   Developed and copyrighted in 1987 by The Appraisal Foundation, a private, not-for-profit corporation, USPAP has been adopted by the major appraisal organizations in North America. Since its establishment, all federal banking agencies have been required to prescribe standards for the performance of real estate appraisals that, at a minimum, meet those published in USPAP.

CRMLS Photagrapher List

Media Licensing Agreements

As disclosed on February 22 by the CEO of CRMLS, we want to emphasize to agents that their brokerage office should carefully review all photo and other media licensing agreements prior to posting them in the MLS. Brokers must not place media that is subject to inadequate license agreements into the MLS. Inadequate license agreements include those that contain any limitations on the use of media after marketing of the property stops or any limitation on the ability to sub-license the media. If you have any doubt about the scope or limitations in a license a photographer provides, CRMLS recommends having a knowledgeable attorney with a full understanding of the CRMLS Rules review the license. Brokers may also choose to use only photographers that appear on the CRMLS Photographer List, as all of them have agreed to provide the MLS-required license. We provide this list on our website and update...

AB840 Defeated - Realtor Action Party

REALTOR® Party of California Successfully Defeats Legislation Threatening the Ellis Act

This year is beginning with a significant win in stopping Assembly Bill 854 (Lee) which would have weakened the Ellis Act by forcing property owners to keep their rental business for at least five consecutive years.

Coming Soon Comes To An End

Coming Soon listings will no longer go to IDX feeds This CRMLS Board decision went into effect on January 5, 2022 Starting on Wednesday, January 5th, CRMLS will no longer send “Coming Soon” listings to IDX feeds. Websites that use IDX feeds will no longer display or receive data about “Coming Soon” listings.

Keeping IDX feeds the same throughout CRMLS and other California MLSs prevents data discrepancies and other challenges. This change came about after discussion, voting, and approval by the CRMLS Board of Directors. Thank you for your support. California Regional MLS
