Annual Dues Renewal

When Are Payments Due? 

2019 Dues and/or MLS Fees renewal payments are due Monday, January 7, 2019. Please pay on time to avoid a $35 late fee and possible interruption in services.


“Monthly for the first 6 months” Option:

  • New Extended dues dates: Remaining monthly payments are due by Feb 11, Mar 11, Apr 11, May 11, and Jun 11.
  • Each installment invoice has its own due date, invoices are not interchangeable.
  • Please don’t pay installment invoices in the wrong order to attempt to pay less. 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), as well as add “ocarDuesBilling@ocar.org” to your Contacts.

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 or earlier. If you pay in full online in December you will be entered into a drawing for free dues! We recommend this option.
  2. Pay monthly. Pay every month for the first 6 months between January and June.

How Do I Pay?

We accept AMEX, Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Check, Telecheck (online only), and cash.  You can pay:

  1. Online

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 the Jan 07 due date) for agents in the office. Unpaid agents affiliated with your office will each trigger an additional 2019 assessment of $490. You can require them to pay their renewal invoice, you can remove them from your license or pay the fee for each of them.
