On Tuesday, August 28, the following changes will be made in the CRMLS Matrix platform:

Changes to Printed Reports and Search Displays

  • The ML# field on the Quick CMA report will be removed to make room for the addition of theDOM/CDOM and COE Date/End Date fields.
  • The Baths Total field (Ba) on the Agent 1 Linedisplay will be removed and replaced with Baths Full/ThreeQtr/Half/OneQtr (Bth(F,T,H,Q)).
  • The Open House Agent Full report and display will be renamed to Open House Full.
  • All search displays containing an agent’s DRE#will link directly to the DRE site with the agent’s license information.

Field Changes

  • When adding a Residential Income listing, the totals entered into Unit Information must match the total number of units that you input in the # of Units field. For example, if you entered 3 in the # of Units field, you will be required to enter Unit Information for three units. For each type of unit you specify in the #Units field, you will be required to enter information in the corresponding#Bedrms#BathsFurnished?Garage SpacesActual RentTotal Rent, and Pro Forma fields. If the number of garage spaces you entered is equal to one or more, you will also be required to enter a value in the Garage Attached/Detached field.
  • If Notice of Default is not selected in the Sale Type field when entering a Short Sale listing, you will receive an input warning asking you to verify that a Notice of Default does not exist. If a Notice of Default does occur, you will need to update your listing. This is for all property types.
  • If the value entered in the Date of Listing field is more than 10 days from the day you enter the listing in Matrix, you will receive an input warning during listing input. Input will still be allowed.
  • When entering Mobile Home listings, the Park NameManager’s Name, and Contact Information fields will be required.

  • When entering a Mobile Home listing, if you selectLease in the Land Fee/Lease field, the Land Lease/Space Rent Amount field will be required.

Rancho Agents Love Their Dads June 18, 2012

How do I know? Because every day when I log into the Multiple Listing Service, I’m updated with all kinds of great New Listings, Price Changes, Closings, etc. and this morning there was hardly anything. This leads me to believe that Rancho Agents spent the last 24 hours with their families, as they should.

So what did happen yesterday all over Rancho yesterday?

  • 0 – # of New Listings, Back-up Offers, Expireds
  • 1 – # of Price Changes, Closed Escrows
  • 2 – # of Back on Market, Pending

Have $2.7M? Want TV Home? April 20, 2011

One of my favorite Real Housewives is selling her gorgeous home! Why? She’s going through the big “D” and don’t mean Dallas… Divorce for the Gunvalsons!

This charming (at 5,400 SF that you have to verify) home boasts 5 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms and sits on just about an acre of land.

Think it might be too much to commit to the mortgage? Just rent it for a paltry $9,500/month!

Here’s the famous stairs and her office:

Here’s her kitchen… still don’t understand the rooster…

Here’s the pool her son was always drinking in with his friends:

Gotta love this backyard!

Interesting side note: she’s not on title…

All information was obtained through the MLS (except for my tidbits from watching Bravo‘s show).

Should you have any questions about anything you’ve read here, would like more details about Coto de Caza or if you’re interested in another city in Southern California (particularly the San Gabriel Valley or Inland Empire), please feel free to call your favorite REALTOR 😉
