Yes, but how many agents do NOT print the customer version of the MLS report but the agent report with the combination? I thinks its irresponsible of any agent or broker to include the combo in MLS regardless of a vacant REO or an individual owner in a private treaty offering...just my 2 cent opinion.

PS
Our local board sells (leases actually if you read the agreement) the supra GE boxes at about $100 a pop but decided I would put the MLS boxes on all my REO listings for several reasons:

1) I know who and how many showed the asset at the time the agent/broker popped the lock.
2) I can get the number of showings (ifthe box was used) on the screen for those pesky MMRs now going to bi-monthly in frequency.
3) I can ususally track down by elimination of calling the showing agants/brokers the approx time and day a detrimental incident occured or had not occured...such as who might have turned the thermostat on the AC way down after the wekkly inspections.

BTW on those monthly utility bills on my REO assets where I can leave the AC operable, 85 to 90 degrees setting, I got a handle on the thermostat by going to depot or lowes and buying those lockable thermostat
covers. I rarely NOT put them because of the reoccuring incidents of the circuit breaker being turned back for the AC, the setting left at 60 to test it by showing coop agents. It only took one of those accompanying monthly house payments of an electric bill to make me reuse them, and leaving four extra holes in the wall for the next owner doesn't hurt my wallet one bit.

Lets all talk "real" for a minute here because I've never heard such a load of Horse.... in my life! Your talking to realtors here guy (not customers), so snap out of your ethical trance and wake up!

We all have to obey laws and ethics rules (were well aware of this), but don't try and sit their and tell me its real... we sling BS each day to make a living and we all know it, i will list a few examples here in an effort to "snap" some of you out of this stupor your in to give us at least one place we can be ourselves and speak truth!

#1 How many of you have tried to run to a seller to get YOUR offer accepted and signed fast (knowing you DON'T want other higher offers to come before yours is executed) << that's not adhering to your fiduciary responsibility and we all know it!

#2 How many times have you tried to get a buyer to sign an exclusive buyer agency contract? common folks.... we all all know the soul reason for this contract is protect our asses and "lock that buyer up to us forEBA!" Mahahaha

#3 How many people have attempted to send a mailing to a home which is currently listed (you being fully aware that's its a listed house), or how many have talked to friends of friends who know of others who have their home listed and you slip in the convo "Ohh, well you should have the seller call me" or some crap like that (These are direct conflicts of our code of ethics)....and they happen every day!!!

Lets be totally honest and real here, we can all give 100 other examples of "REAL WORLD" vs. "WHAT WE ALL SAY WE DO"... I want a forum to be the one place i CAN vent! I CAN speak openly and honestly! I CAN be real about what happens, experiences, suggestions, etc. without some mod coming in here and acting like a freeeeeking real estate board.... THIS IS THE ONE PLACE I WANT A LITTLE TIME TO BE REAL!

Now on another note.... Happy V day everyone<333

if you are a "real" who thinks what i say is the real "TRUTH" then thank me.

[quote=SalesProzac]How about some plain old common sense? I was posting on another topic earlier, and I was bereated for my choices, and opinions. Noted professionals acting like small children. Very sad indeed. [/quote]

I agree....just state your opinion, respect others and use a bit of common sense. Should not be that hard really.

Great PostI Guess this also goes for what government might recommend as the "way."

[quote=Realty Freak]Any student of history knows that "The Way" things are done and accepted is not always the ethically or morally correct way. Many a great figure in history like Martin Luther King Jr., Mahatma Gandhi and Susan B. Anthony knew that the status quo was wrong.

In business the line between right and wrong might fall in or out of legal boundaries and is often blurred. Look at Sam Walton, some would say he brought good quality, inexpensive consumer goods to the masses. Others will point out how he single handily destroyed Main Street USA along with countless American manufacturing jobs.

So when you post here "that's just the way it is done" and "well, it's legal" won't fly. Conversation here should be geared to changing or defending real estate industry accepted practises. [/quote]

On the day I received my Real Estate license way back in the 1970s during the Carter Administration years. My father, a 40 year veteran of the Real Estate business and a Broker sat me down to the kitchen table and gave me "the talk." It was simple and to the point and I have not nor will not every forget it although I am no longer in the business it fits in anything you do in your life.

These were his points short and sweet.

1. Treat your clients and other agents the way you would want to be treated. (Do unto others.........)
2. You have to be able to sleep at night.
3. When you get up in the morning and look in the bathroom mirror make sure you are able to look yourself in the face with a clear conscience and you can feel proud of who you are.
4. In this world your good name is really the only thing you have so make sure you live up to it. Once lost it will never be regained.

Ethics by far is the way to go. If it does not feel right chances are it is not right. Everyone has that gut feeling some just choose not to listen to it.
