New Policies for Deferred Showings
September 27, 2017
Can't show a property because it's being painted? Don't want to show because the staging won't be completed for a few more days? Seller wants you to debut the property at this weekend's open house?
The new "Deferred Showing" policy allows you to responsibly serve your client's needs and cooperate ethically with fellow MLS subscribers.
Recognizing the ever-changing demands of today's clients and that MLS rules need to evolve so that subscribers can meet their needs accordingly, the Board of Directors recently approved a change to our policies related to delayed showings.

HOME Survey: Economic and Financial Outlook, Attitudes About Home Buying and Selling on the Rise
September 25, 2017
WASHINGTON (September 25, 2017) - Existing-homes sales have retreated in four of the past five months, but new survey findings from the National Association of Realtors® indicate it is not because of a lack of confidence from consumers about buying and selling a home, or based on their views about the direction of the economy and their finances.
That’s according to NAR's third quarter Housing Opportunities and Market Experience (HOME) survey1 , which also found that two-thirds of households think saving for a down payment is challenging, and roughly half of renters expect to pay more in rent next year.

REALTORS Step Up to Help Flood Victims
August 30, 2017
As the devastation of Hurricane Harvey unfolds, local REALTORS® have stepped in to help with a two-pronged approach to aid those in need.
First, the Rhode Island Association of REALTORS® and State-Wide Multiple Listing Service, in cooperation with Rhode Island’s five local boards of REALTORS®, have collectively donated $10,750 to the REALTORS® Relief Foundation, a national foundation established to help families who have endured unimaginable loss.
The REALTORS® Relief Foundation is currently coordinating efforts for relief in the gulf coast cities and in the greater Houston, Texas area due to the unprecedented flooding left by Hurricane Harvey. In addition to their own donation, REALTORS® across the state are encouraging the public to join them in contributing to this worthy cause.

August 3, 2017
David P. Leys, Jr., 59, a life-long resident of Middletown, RI, passed away peacefully on Wednesday August 2, 2017, in his home surrounded by his family, after living courageously for five years as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, gradually destroyed his body but not his spirit.
He was an exceptional and devoted father to three children, Bowen, Ryan, and Annie.
A 1977 graduate of Middletown HS, he continued his education earning a Bachelor of Arts from New England College in Henniker, NH, in 1981. Before, during, and after he earned his degree, he worked with his father in the family business, Leys Century Store, the longest continuously family-run department store in the country.

After the family store closed, he had a variety of careers as co-owner of Aquidneck Island Sporting Goods, schoolteacher, and tennis coach before becoming a Realtor... Read More »
