What was hot in Commonwealth Online

The June issue of Commonwealth Online had one of the highest clickthrough rates ever thanks to things like the first-time homebuyer’s credit and all those new laws passed by the General Assembly.

The hottest links this month were all about the new stuff going down. At the top, the VARbuzz post “A handy flyer from VAR to explain to your clients how to apply the $8000 first time homebuyers credit to closing costs.”

Then came the link to VHDA because of its new Homebuyer Tax Credit Plus loan product — you know, the one with the built-in bridge loan.

Following close behind were links to VARealtor.com’s information on those 2009 laws, and VARbuzz posts on the Home Valuation Code of Conduct and the new Residential Disclosure Statement.

Sure we love the traffic, but even better we love to see everyone wanting to keep up with all the changes.

  1. Commonwealth Online and Magazine is ALWAYS GOOD READING – from cover to cover. I have yet to not get useful information on managing my business, technology tips, legal advise etc. Whereas, Realtor Magazine is too marketing and advertising oriented – Commonwealth is a working tool for the working agent!

    Thank you.

    Lots of value added material, especially like the Legallines Q&A.

  3. The Commonwealth Online and Magazine is one publication I can always count on to get the latest in valuable content!

  4. I agree. There is a great deal of helpful information to be found through Commonwealth. And, with all of the changes that have been taking place lately, it is not a surprise to learn that they had one of the highest clickthrough rates ever with this issue. Very interesting stuff!

  5. I also agree. I rely heavily on the Commonwealth Magazine and Realtor.org to keep my clients and my sphere current on what’s going on. That, along with NVAR’s monthly statistics!
