Beginning in 2020, all primary members of SABOR will receive an estimated $71* savings in their total cost of membership to our local association!
*Estimate based on basic membership cost
Here’s what this looks like going forward:
This is made possible by our switch to ShowingTime as our showing service provider, which allowed us a savings that we want to pass on to our members.
You will see this estimated $71 decrease over the course of the coming year and subsequent years.
Here’s how this will work:
Your MLS fees will be decreasing by a total of $84 for the year. This is a combination of a $13 reallocation in dues and a $71 reduction in fees. This means the final savings you’ll receive is a net estimated savings of $71 for the year.
When will you see the savings?
The savings will be spread across your quarterly MLS fees billing.
Don’t forget: The State Association, Texas REALTORS®, has an increase you’ll see on your dues bill:
Texas REALTORS® is reinstituting the Issues Mobilization and Political Advocacy Fund* assessment of $30, which will be included on your annual bill you’ll receive on November 1. They will also be maintaining the $5 Legal Fund Assessment. Your annual dues bill includes dues for your membership in the national, state and local associations.
So, where do your dues go exactly?
Here’s a handy chart showing just how your dues are allocated between state, national and local. You can also click here for a more detailed breakdown.
As a reminder, annual dues will be billed November 1 and your first quarter MLS fees will be billed on December 10.
