Quick Guide to your PAREB MLS


QUICK  GUIDE  TO  YOUR  MLS
Serving Members 24/7

WHAT IS MLS?
MLS  stands for Multiple Listing Service, sometimes called Multiple Listings System known worldwide.  PAREB-MLS is being handled by the MLS Committee of the Philippine Association of Real Estate Boards, (PAREB) Inc. Members post and exchange listings among its members through the MLSPAREB E-GROUP.  PAREB Members posts listings for properties for sale or lease and/or clients property  requirements-equally sharing Professional Fees on successful closings.

HAVE  YOUR  OWN WEBSITE VIA RPMLX.COM?  
PAREB  MLS also uses an online system-RPMLX.com our website which houses our real estate portal. RPMLX.COM contains basic information on a properties for sale or lease. Sign up and get your own website where  you can upload information and pictures about you and about your listings. (New Pareb Mls website:  www.parebmls.com )

MLS  RULES  AND  GUIDELINES:
PAREB MLS has its own set of RULES which the members must follow to ensure a fair, equitable and peaceful  sale of real estate amongst its members.

WHO OWNS THE MLS?
PAREB owns PAREB MLS which is a member based service and is part of the benefits of PAREB members through membership in local boards, it is administered and operated by its MLS COMMITTEE.

BENEFITS  OF  USING  MLS  SEARCH FOR LISTING
MLS moves our listing faster by matching listings posted in the MLS.  The SEARCH engine in our MLS database makes this possible.  

WHO MAY POST LISTING TO THE MLS?
All Pareb members in good standing may post listing on the MLS. Members who post listings on MLS  agree to abide with all the MLS rules and code of  ethics.

HOW  WILL  MLS  WIN CLIENT  LOYALTY?
Posting your listings on MLS means members will immediately   receive your listing  on their email as soon as it is posted. Your listings will be seen by 814 other members from different local boards who can help you find a buyer/ tenant for  your listed a property or  help you find a property  for your wanted to buy/lease listings. With so many members you can sell your property faster and your client will stick with you for providing good service.

WHAT CAN YOU POST IN THE MLS?
Only  direct listing for  Sale/Rent/Joint Ventures may be posted in our  MLS.  Wanted to but/lease properties may also be listed but must also be from DIRECT BUYER/CLIENTS. Listing Broker must verify  titles of the subject  properties for sale and venture, minimum.

COMMISSION
The Professional Fee must be  5%  or at least  3% of the Selling Price. For properties for rent it should be minimum of one (1) month per year. PF for subsequent year/s may vary.

WHAT ARE  THE BASIC GUIDELINES FOR POSTING OF PROPERTIES IN MLS?
A listing broker must have personally  seen and inspected the said property. Submitted data must be true and correct to the best of his knowledge and ability. A written AUTHORITY  TO SELL/LEASE must be available upon demand.

CAN YOU SHARE LISTINGS POSTED ON THE MLS?
NO.  PAREBMLS is a private E-GROUP. Only MLS  Members can view its content, emails and archives of messages and information. You must secure permission from the listing broker to share listings with non-members.

WHAT DETAILS OF THE LISTING BROKER MUST BE INCLUDED?
All messages must bear at the very minimum, the name of the member, his local board affiliation, and contact info. Location, Price, Professional fees must also included. Without these info, it will not be approved by the moderators.  

HOW DO I PUT THE ABOVE INFORMATION EACH TIME I SEND AN EMAIL?
You may set your “signature”  in your email so that this becomes authomathic .  To assist you with your signature, the MLS Committee have its members assist you during the CONGRESS. You may also refer to suggestions made by our our “PAREB TECHIES” in earlier e-mails in the e-group. Type “SIGNATURE” in the Search box and look  for postings on this topics.

HOW DO I ORGANIZE  MY LISTINGS:
Listing of properties individually will benefit you more if you organize postings or put them in “folders’ according to category as some REALTORS do. For example you may file them as ‘For Sale’ House and Lot, etc. You may always refer to these folders in proper Category as your need arise.

USE OF CATEGORY FOR LISTING PROPERTIES IS ENCOURAGE:
Members are encourage to use categories selected by the MLS Committee to maximize the listing placed on MLS. Here are some :
FS –  For Sale
FL -   For Lease
WTB – Wanted To Buy
WTL – Wanted to lease
THSE – Townhouse
HL – House and Lot
VL – Vacant Lot
  
IF YOU WANT TO LOOK FOR A SPECIFIC PROPERTY LISTED TO THE MLS  E-GROUP, HOW DO I FIND IT IN MY E-MAIL?  
If you currently a member of the e-group, you may type the name of property, or property type in the “search box” and through ‘search result’ you may find property you are looking for.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU GET A REPLY TO YOUR  POSTINGS?
When someone calls you regarding your listing, it becomes your obligation to reply to the Realtor . As a courtesy  to your fellow Brokers, you must  acknowledge the email/text regarding your listing promptly. Always make it a habit to check your  “BULK”or “Spam” folder. Sometimes replies to your emails land in there.

WHAT IS THE SHARING OF PROFESSIONAL FEE TO THE MLS?
In our MLS sharing is always split 50/50 by the listing Broker and the Selling Broker. In case there is a REFERRAL, the referral fee which is 10-20%  may be shared by the selling and Listing Brokers  but only if there is prior  agreement among the parties. The other party who is being requested to share in REFERRAL FEE has no obligation to participate in sharing such fee, in which case the referral fee will have to be borne by the member whose who was referred the buyer/client/listing.
  
IN CASE OF OPEN LISITNG, IS IT  ALRIGHT FOR SELLING BROKER WHO PREVIOUSLY BROUGHT IN A PROSPECTIVE BUYER (but the transaction did not materialize or otherwise)to solicit his own Authority to Sell/Lease from property owner?
A  listing broker may not go directly  to the OWNER  even if the transaction did not materialize. He/She must go through the other Broker who introduced him to the property.

WHAT IF  THE SELLING BROKER FINDS OUT AFTER BEING INTRODUCED OF THE PROEPRTY THAT HE “KNOWS  “   the property owner through some personal circumstances ( a friend of a friend, sister of a client, etc.) is it alright to solicit an AUTHORITY TO SELL/RENT for himself and close the sale on his own?
Even if the selling Broker is a friend , relative, etc of the owner, our CODE OF TETHICS prohibits him/her from getting the listing from owner/client of the listing broker.

CAN WE POST COMPLAINTS IN THE MLS E-GROUP?
The MLS Committee through the recommendation of the Moderators and the local MLS President and/or Chairman where errant member who does not follow the mls2005 rules as set forth.  (Courtesy of  Pareb Mls)

BIR sought the assistance of PRC in solving tax evasion among professionals

BIR Comm. Kim S. Jacinto- Henares
To read the full story click on the link; BIR taps regulator

COMMENTARY:

We fully support the efforts of government particularly the Bureau of Internal Revenue in solving tax evasion or avoidance among professionals.  The Professional Regulation Commission should at the very least requires self-employed professionals to submit evidence of Registration (BIR Form 2303) and payments of Annual Registration Fee (BIR Form 0605) from BIR. The submission of Income Tax Return with PRC would be illogical sense the said agency lacks the authority in determination if said professional has properly paid his taxable income.

4 Years of RESA

(image by: caviterebap.blogspot.com)
    Today, June 29, 2013 is just an ordinary day to most Filipino. No special holiday declared by the government or a red day on our calendar. But to most observant Real Estate Service Practitioner or simply "RESP" June 29 should be a Special Day at least to most of us. Because on the said date RESA or the Real Estate Service Act of the Philippines was approved by then President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo the said Act become one of the most promising legislation's that Congress and Senate have passed.

    To date all RESP aspire to benefit in all aspect to whatever results it may bring whether material or financial gain, personal upliftment through real estate experiences and professional growth and maturity.  We in the real estate industry would continue to support the effort of various leading government agency in promoting the full implementations of Republic Act 9646 in order to protect the general welfare of the public and for government to utilize the so called "multiplier effect" of the real estate industry.

"No property bubble, yet for PH." Moody's

    Moody's Corporation announced that Philippines real estate sector remains strong and that "No threat of property bubble, yet." According to Moody's the country's strong property sector remains positive due to high demand and low interest rates.

(video from youtube)
ANC News

    However some "doomsday experts" say and think otherwise, they said that the said "property bubble" were already here some years ago.  Since most of the high rise property now are mostly vacant and were not utilized for its purpose especially in the residential sector.  But, developers think otherwise, foreign buyers remain high were in it said that they are not simple buying a unit or two but sometimes they would tend to purchased a whole floor consisting of 6-8 units or even penthouse unit.  The OFW market will continually grow and remain promising because owning a house are one of the many dreams of most Filipinos.  The BPO's, and the local market, considering government financial institutions like the SSS, GSIS and PAG-IBIG  have allocated funds for membership housing loans at a very low interest rate. These sectors would still stir growth for property demand both in residential and commercial use.

   We as real estate service professionals or RESP in general, think that the very strict requirements of the banking sectors together with the property developers and government direct interventions through positive policies the said bubble would be just series of marketing challenges that could become a "sparkle of opportunity" for our sector. Wherein the so called multiplier effect of the property sector would drive the Philippine economy positively.

(economictimes..indiatime.com)

"If you cannot make it on time, you should come before the time!"


     With the signing (May 23, 2013) into law of the Philippine Standard Time Act of 2013 or Republic Act 10535 which synchronized and setting all the timepieces or devices of government offices nationwide both local and national agencies in coordination with PAGASA or the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration. .  This also declares the first week of every year as "National Time Consciousness Week."

     This is a very welcome moved to all RESP or real estate service practitioners particularly those engaged in real estate documentations. The on time releases of various documents would mean reliability of service by the said professionals.Government offices both local and national will become more efficient to the public by giving them prompt and on time service to the public.

     This act should make "Filipino time as being on time" since punctuality is a trademark of one true professional.

    Said Act shall take effect 15 days from its publication in the Official Gazette or in two newspaper of  general circulation.
