Q: What does Allocation mean on the bill?
A: The term allocation is used for the dues amounts paid for the next year. Depending on your membership type, members pay a separate allocation amount to NAR, CAR and SFAR.
Q: Why is the annual dues amount broken down into three parts on the bill?
A: The annual dues billing statement is broken down into three parts because the payment is distributed to three different vendors. Dues bills are broken into the following payments – National Association of Realtors (NAR), California Association of Realtors (CAR) and San Francisco Association of Realtors (SFAR).
Q: Why did I receive two separate bills?
A: If you are a member of both SFAR and SFARMLS you received two bills. One of the bills is for your 2017 Association Dues and the other is for the 1st Quarter MLS service.

Starting December 14 and going through to Christmas, SFAR will be finalizing the changes for moving listings in District 9 DFGH to the NEW Wednesday Broker Tour, using the Rapattoni MLS system and our two vendors: THEO and MyPropertyOffice.
Additionally, the MLS system names, links and reports will be changed to reflect "BROKER TOUR" instead of "TUESDAY TOUR" for all listings on tour, no matter which day they are held.
The data will autopopulate for Wednesday between Noon and 2:00 p.m. if your listing is in District 9 DFGH. It will no longer be possible to have listings from these sub-districts on both Tuesday and Wednesday. WEDNESDAY will be the sole dedicated time slot for these listings.
Please note: We will be removing the Wednesday tour group from the RealTimeMLS solution when we roll this change out. We intend to finalize this for January 1, 2017. So keep a look out for messages on all of our channels: the Member's Edge newsletter, our member website (my.sfrealtors.com), a special MLS Dashboard Broadcast message, and a normal MLS Welcome Message.
