Visions for the Year Ahead
 -
Jason Copeman.jpegBy Jason Copeman, 2017 Michigan Realtors® President
 
Well, the holidays have passed and the New Year has begun. This is often the time of year for resolutions and setting goals…contemplating ways to make the coming year better or more fulfilling. As your Michigan Realtors® 2017 President, I have a goal of leading our organization into the future with sights set on higher levels of participation. This can be through involvement in leadership at the local, state, and national levels, higher numbers in our very important calls to action, more members contributing to the ever-growing need for critical RPAC funding or even someone bringing along a first-time attendee to a conference. There are many avenues from which to inspire increased participation. What is your resolution or goal for the New Year? Something worthy of considering is a commitment to volunteerism; an objective that is easy to obtain as well beneficial to both you and the community at large.
 
Congratulations to those Realtors® who’ve been so impressively committed to volunteering this past year and in prior years. Your dedication to our local, state, and national associations is invaluable. I personally consider volunteers to be the root of our strength as an association. Congratulations to those just beginning their journey as well. We’re always looking for ways to encourage involvement, and our organization and state can only benefit from your contributions.

RPAC Recognition Luncheon at Achieve

The Michigan Realtors® would like to thank all of the local associations who made the final push for RPAC investors at the end of 2016. With a state RPAC goal of $800,000, Realtor® members met and exceeded it with a final total of over $900,000! That is a record amount! In addition, many local associations met and/or exceeded their local RPAC goal! Congratulations to all the local associations who put forth such an amazing effort! 
 
These grand RPAC accomplishments will be recognized at Achieve in Detroit. The RPAC Recognition Luncheon and awards ceremony is scheduled for Wednesday, February 15th at noon. The luncheon is free for Achieve attendees and $35 for those who would like to attend the luncheon only. Click here to register for the Achieve conference or for the luncheon only. Don’t miss this chance to mingle with the best of the best in Michigan real estate!
 
As 2017 begins, RPAC continues to lead the charge in the protection of homeownership and private property rights for all Michigan citizens. Again, thank you for your commitment to RPAC, and we look forward to continued success this year!

Legal Lines – Question of the Month
-
With the help of McClelland & Anderson, we are taking the most recently asked questions from our legal hotline and putting them in E-news. We will be featuring a different question each issue.
 
QUESTION:
I listed a home for $300,000. My seller has received a full price offer and wants to counter it at $310,000. Can he do this?
 
ANSWER:
YES. Even if a full price offer is presented to the seller, he or she is not obligated to sell it at that price and can counter at a price that is higher than the listing price. (A listing broker may be entitled to a commission even if the seller does not accept a full price offer.)
