Columbus Ohio real estate

"Did you mean Columbus + NEAR?"

I was not surfing the web yesterday.

I had not heard the news.

I missed the announcement that the lawsuit against NAR (National Association of Realtors) by the DOJ (Department of Justice) is over...

After posting an entry I "Googled" for Columbus + NAR to see if ALL of the local real estate bloggers scooped me.

Google asked:

Did you mean: Columbus + NEAR  

National Association of Realtors 5 minutes ago by Maureen McCabe  
The DOJ (Department of Justice) had a lawsuit against NAR (National Association of Realtors) for years. CNN (is that Cable News Network?) Money says the DOJ lawsuit against NAR was filed in September 2005. Settled Tuesday… breaking news ...

You gotta love Google!

No, I really meant Columbus and NAR, National Association of Realtors.columbus map

5 minutes ago? I posted "National Association of Realtors " within the hour.  Google picks up ColumbusBestBlog.com (my other blog) quick..

Thanks to William Johnson on ActiveRain for the heads up (I was not surfing the web yesterday...) NAR Settles Lawsuit with Justice Dept  William's post is Members Only... no big secrets, he's talking to his peers... I linked to the same CNNMoney article Willam did.

Columbus and CLOSE UP

Real estate is local.  The scoop is only a little blurb in our local news, the Columbus Dispatch. It is in the news briefs. I'm sure they will cover the story locally soon, quoting local folk about what it will mean for us (agents, brokerages, consumers.)  It will be interesting to see if it changes real estate locally.

N is for National

I have not even gone to see what NAR has to say about the settlement yet.

NAR, the National Association of Realtors, is a trade organization.  The DOJ lawsuit against NAR was about IDX and VOW as I recall....don't know what IDX is or VOW read about it on CBB I mean ColumbusBestBlog.com  Thanks.
