Changes for 2019»

New calculation method for purchases with a construction contract.

  • Now calculated as two transactions!
  • Purchase - one credit & full purchase price.
  • Construction:
    • With separate closing
    • Without separate closing - based on actual contract price/date commission is paid in full

The volume and unit credit for the new construction contract shall be based on the actual contract price and the effective volume and unit credit date shall be the date the commission is paid in full. The documentation that will be required for this volume and unit credit must include; the signed construction contract and a copy of the commission check paid to the applicant’s company.

Changes Implemented in 2018»

#1 - Resolved Data conflicts between FMLS and Contract for purposes of credit.

  • Two agents in FMLS/One agent on the Contract->FMLS Transaction data used to determine credit.
  • Two agents in FMLS/Additional agent(s) on the Contract->Additional agent(s) on the Contract should be added and credit shall be equally divided among the agents listed.

Top Producers

Changes Implemented in 2018»

FMLS transactions are no longer editable in the online program. Additional listing or selling agents can be added, but all other data will reflect the existing information as it exists in FMLS. If the data is incorrect in FMLS, then FMLS should be notified of any corrections.

Changes Implemented in 2018»

#2 - Members transitioning from one team to another or to individual status.

Situations - Team Members could have qualified with no transition but didn’t qualify when transitioning. As a result, members would lose a year of recognition when their total production.

Top Producers

Changes Implemented in 2018»

With this change - members can submit an application with the combined total production regardless of their Team Member or Individual status and can earn Longevity credit only.

Note - application may only be submitted in print for these situations.

#3 - Audit process streamlined.

Top Producers

Changes Implemented in 2018»

#4 - Applications must be submitted via the online program.

Any exception must be approved in advance.

Top Producers

Changes Implemented in 2017»

At no time shall any Individual or Team applicant claim more than the purchase price.

(First implemented for 2017 transactions. This decision closed a “loophole” that allowed certain transaction credit to be duplicated on Teams.)
