zipForm Access

zipformnotice

The California Association of REALTORS® has been experiencing some technical difficulties with their site, which has also been impeding access to zipForm for members. C.A.R. has put up a temporary fix website that you can access to gain access directly to zipForm.

Please go to the following website to gain access to zipForm. There is currently no timetable for the car.org website to be up and running, so in the meantime please visit that link so that you can gain access to zipForm directly. Members who use the zipForm Plus Broker and Team Editions should not be affected by the issue. If you have any questions, please feel to reach out to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. regarding any questions or concerns. We thank you for your understanding.

Update Regarding SB 231

car redalert2 01

C.A.R.-Opposed Bill Allowing Local Governments to Impose Homeowner Fees without a Vote Passes Assembly!

The Assembly passed SB 231 on August 31st with the bare minimum of votes necessary. C.A.R. OPPOSES SB 231 because it allows local governments to impose new taxes on homeowners for stormwater treatment infrastructure without the legally required public vote. C.A.R. had issued a Red Alert on this bill and thousands of REALTORS® from across the state called their legislators to help oppose the bill.

Thank you to all the REALTORS® who contacted their legislators in opposition to the bill. While disappointing, it was gratifying that so many members took action in support of homeownership.
