On Monday, April 5, the Northumberland Hills Association of REALTORS® (NHAR) joined the Toronto Regional Real Estate Association (TRREB), and is therefore no longer a member of ITSO. Effective immediately, RAHB members will no longer have access to the NHAR listing data. Any saved searches or auto emails which were previously set up will no-longer provide results containing NHAR listing data.
Should you have any questions regarding NHAR’s decision, please contact Jeanette or Tracy from NHAR at 905.372.8630.

A reminder about notifying RAHB of terminations in your office
Brokerages are responsible for notifying RAHB when members in their office resign or otherwise leave. Notice must be received by RAHB within seven business days of the member leaving. If notice is delayed beyond the seven business days, the Brokerage will be assessed a penalty of $50 per incident. (RAHB Bylaw, Article 4, Section 1.02.)
RAHB is proud to be able to provide the membership with our 2020 Annual Report. Thank you to our dedicated volunteers for their time and commitment to the Association. We encourage you to look at all we have accomplished in such a tough year.
Please click the buttons below to access a digital version of the report or a PDF version that can be downloaded.

RAHB has been working with CoreLogic and ITSO in an effort to improve the search ability of listings in the London and St. Thomas area. While this maintenance is being completed, CoreLogic has advised that any of your current saved searches and/or auto emails in these areas should be updated to add any of the new Municipality and Neighbourhood detail to your search criteria. This maintenance started on Tuesday, March 2, 2021.
While this maintenance is occurring, CoreLogic has advised the best method to update your current searches is to utilize the “Map Search” option. The Map Search is based on location; and not the Region, Municipality or Neighbourhood codes; therefore, using the Map Search will ensure all listings within the area you have defined will be captured.
While the Map based search is the preferred method, another alternative would be to add the new Municipalities or Neighbourhood codes to your existing search criteria. Should you choose this option it is important that you keep all of your existing search criteria the same, ONLY adding the available new Municipalities or Neighbourhood codes to your search criteria if necessary.
