MLS Survey – Tell Us What You Think of Glide
We recently learned that Glide Labs, Inc. was in the process of being acquired and that C.A.R. will soon discontinue providing Glide as a member benefit. The Bay East Association, the Contra Costa Association, and the Bridge Association, have also licensed the Glide product to provide local disclosure forms in the Paragon system. To minimize disruption for our members, we are working with our leadership to determine our next steps. Your feedback will help in this evaluation process.
Please take a few moments and complete the survey via the link below. If you belong to more than one of these MLSs, you only need to complete the survey once. We thank you for your time.

NAR Needs Like-Kind Exchange Stories
Recent proposals to repeal or limit the 1031 like-kind exchange could devastate the commercial real estate sector and investment in communities across the United States. From affordable housing providers, to small businesses, to farmers, 1031 has been used by a range of Americans since its creation 100 years ago.
C.A.R. needs your help to educate lawmakers and their staff about 1031s. It is not a tax loophole for the wealthy; it is a tax tool that has brought immeasurable revenue, jobs, investment, and economic benefit to the U.S.
Complete C.A.R.’s form to tell NAR about how you used 1031 to bring development and economic benefit to your community. Your stories will help put a human face on a critical issue for…
New Form for Tenants’ Rights Notification
C.A.R. has created a new form to assist property managers in complying with a new federal rule issued by the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB).
Effective May 3, 2021, the CFPB rule requires attorneys and agents of landlords or owners of residential property (“debt collectors”) to provide written notice to tenants of their rights under the federal Center for Disease Control (CDC) eviction moratorium.
Previously, no notice of the CDC eviction moratorium was required to be given to a tenant. Now, in certain circumstances, it is…
