The California Department of Real Estate (DRE) Enforcement Division is now investigating and enforcing open house rules. According to the California Association of REALTORS® (C.A.R.), real estate agents, and their broker, who do not follow Cal/OSHA COVID-19 Real Estate Guidance may be contacted by the DRE and informed of the rules. More violations after this initial contact may result in the DRE issuing a citation or referring the agent and broker to health department and law enforcement officials. Agents wanting to report someone who is not following the rules may contact the Department of Real Estate at 877.373.4542.

Clicking on that link does not automatically update your bookmark. The warning notice will only be seen by members who have the old MLS URL bookmarked.
After November 30, the old bookmark will not work. Click Here for the new URL to bookmark for Paragon MLS.

We’ve received reports that when submitting an offer through Disclosures.io, there is a technical glitch where buyer’s agents within a firm may have access to competing offers. This only happens if there is a Listing Agent Team, and one of them changes roles after approving access to the disclosure package to others. We are encouraging our Subscribers not to use the Offer section of D.io until this is resolved.
