Annual Dues Renewal

When Are Payments Due? 

2017 Dues and/or MLS Fees renewal payments were due Tuesday, January 3, 2017 by 5:30 P.M. Please pay on time to avoid a $35 late fee and possible interruption in services.

Bimonthly Option:

  • Remaining bimonthly payments are due by March 1, May 1, and July 1.
  • Each installment invoice has its own due date, invoices are not interchangeable.
  • Please don’t pay the third installment invoice instead of the first installment invoice. Your account will be penalized in January if the first installment invoice is still showing unpaid--regardless of other invoices you may have paid.
  • We will send email reminders for each installment. We suggest that you set reminders on your calendar or sign up for automatic payments (details below).

Payment Options

Your annual statement is divided into four invoices. You have two payment options:

  1. Pay in full. Pay it all at once, at the beginning of the year. We recommend this option.
  2. Pay bimonthly. Pay every other month, between January and July.

As a Designated REALTOR® (usually the Broker), What Do I Need to Know?

Your annual dues include the non-member assessment. Full payment of the assessment is required to maintain your REALTOR® membership and the REALTOR® status of all agents in your office. You or your Office Manager may log into My Account, and select Pay Your Office Account Online to see all unpaid invoices for agents in the office.
