New laws take effect July 1

On July 1, a whole lotta Virginia’s new laws take effect, including a bunch that affect real estate and Realtors. Are you ready? Do you know what’s changing? (Hint: You’d better.)

imageWe’ve got you covered on our just-launched 2013 "New Laws Virginia Realtors Need to Know About" page. (Sorry — we couldn’t come up with a fancy name for it.)

What’s there? We keep it clear and simple:

First there’s an outline of the new laws in plain English. (Legalese available upon request.)

Then, especially for brokers, we’ve got a ton of material you can use in your next meeting:

  • A video update from VAR legislative counsel Chip Dicks — the guy who wrote most of these new laws (that’s him above)
  • A short PowerPoint presentation you can use to explain things to your agents
  • A new-laws poster and detailed article from the June/July Commonwealth magazine, both in PDF and suitable for printing

(The video update alone is worth the click — it’s not often you get the guy who wrote the laws to explain what they’re all about.)

Some of these changes are pretty significant, and you’ll want to know about them ASAP. The site is up; head on over and get yourself updated.
