Habitat For Humanity LPCAR Build Day - June 26, 2020!
We are pleased to be teaming up once again for a Habitat Build in Michigan
City. This is a great way to help our community while promoting the dream
of Homeownership. Volunteers are needed to help us build this dream!
Habitat will be providing PPE for all volunteers and follow all social distancing guidelines and procedures. All volunteers will need to fill out the standard waiver form and information sheet prior to the start of the day. Waivers may be filled out and emailed to the board office. Please sign up and send your information to our office by June 15, 2020 as the organization will need to plan for the day's build. All LPCAR members are welcome and invited to join us for the day!
COVID-19 Resources and updates
A Message from your Association President
In response to the growing concerns about COVID-19, aka Coronavirus:
As you are all aware our local Schools have closed, and we have had 1 positive case here in LaPorte County, we are doing our best in following all updates from the CDC, WHO, and our own NAR. NAR has provided us a website for guidance on how to respond to the coronavirus's potential impact on the real estate industry. www.nar.realtor/coronavirus
During these next few weeks the board office will be open but only via phone or email!. We will all do our best to stay calm and follow any advice from our relevant Health officials. Everyone, please stay safe and healthy!

We are REALTORS, we live by the Code...
The Code of Ethics of the National Association of REALTORS® is a document which is universally recognized by lawyers and laymen as the measure of professionalism in the real estate industry. It does not describe the lowest common denominator of permissible behavior as do the licensing laws of the state. Instead, it outlines the highest ideals of professional performance the public, and other REALTORS®, have a right to expect from REALTORS®.
The MLS Hour: Clear Cooperation Policy
NAR's MLS Director Rene Galicia leads a panel discussion covering the MLS Statement 8.0 Clear Cooperation Policy, approved in November 2019 during the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in San Francisco.
Read more about the passing of the Clear Cooperation policy at the REALTORS® Conference & Expo in this REALTOR® Magazine story.
