Did NAR’s buyer contract info provide the clarity you need? Pulse

May is Commission and Compensation Month here at Inman. We’ll sort through the noise and misinformation and provide you with the most up-to-date facts and strategies about how to prosper in the wake of the commission settlements. And look for straight-to-your inbox updates with Inman’s new weekly digest, Commission Chronicles.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

Last week, NAR Chief Legal Officer Katie Johnson sent an email to NAR members clarifying policy changes that follow the trade group’s recent commission lawsuit settlement. Among these clarifications is the requirement for brokers and agents to sign contracts with buyers they are “working with” before the buyer “tours any home.”

Do you feel comfortable that you now know the rules of the road, or are you waiting for more details to come?

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.

How do you feel about a potential TikTok ban? Pulse

How do you feel about a potential TikTok ban? Pulse

At Inman Connect Las Vegas, July 30-Aug. 1, 2024, the noise and misinformation will be banished, all your big questions will be answered, and new business opportunities will be revealed. Join us.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

We recently asked our Inman Coast to Coast Facebook community for their thoughts on the recently signed TikTok ban. While for many TikTok has never been a big deal, for others, it’s a tool for lead generation, education and fun.

Although the ban isn’t yet official — and could still be reversed if the app divests from its parent company, ByteDance — we wanted to find out: How do you feel about a potential TikTok ban? If you use the app, is it just a source of entertainment, or do you find it useful for promoting your business? Do you think the security concerns are overblown, or is the ban a good idea? Let us know below:

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
