Discount real estate brokerage unveils low-cost franchise option

If 2020 has shown us anything, it is that many of the ways that we have done things in the past can change in a heartbeat. Although real estate sales continue to stay strong, we have learned new ways of marketing, communication, and getting through a real estate transaction.

The Discount Real Estate Brokerage

In 2015, 1 Percent Lists was formed and immediately disrupted its local real estate market by providing a full-service experience for listing clients while only charging one percent commission. This re-envisioned the discount real estate broker that had been done for years.

The logic behind this move was to grab a massive listing market share and use that as leverage to generate a much larger pool of buyers for their agents. The company was built from the ground up to be extremely efficient and is modeled after companies such as Amazon, which dominate by reducing their

Gov. Tony Evers unveils new COVID relief bill; Vos calls it ‘more of the same’ | Local Government

“Many of the things that Gov. Evers put on the table, not bad ideas, but they were things that we had already done in the spring. So from my perspective, what we have been doing so far has not been anywhere near enough,” he said.

As Speaker, Vos has the ability to convene the Legislature in extraordinary session at any time to pass further legislation, though he hasn’t done so. 

Assuming a compromise is reached on the legislation, Vos said he was open to convening his chamber in a December lame-duck session to act on it, though it’s unclear for now where the Senate stands on that possibility. 

Evers last week teased his COVID legislation in a primetime address, but didn’t share details of what would be included at the time. He had also renewed his call for Wisconsinites to stay at home, releasing an executive order saying as much,

House unveils budget plan, would dig into rainy day fund

BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts House is preparing to consider whether to dip even deeper into the state’s rainy day fund than what Gov. Charlie Baker has proposed when they debate a $46 billion state budget plan next week.

The budget proposal won’t include any new broad-based taxes, according to Democratic leaders in the House. Instead it will focus on areas like supporting students during the pandemic, enhancing food security and boosting substance addiction services, domestic violence and sexual assault treatment and prevention, and legal assistance.

“This is a crisis budget that pays bills but concentrates on those who are most in need of help,” Democratic House Speaker Robert DeLeo said Thursday.

The proposed spending plan also aims to increase assistance to renters, many of whom have struggled to pay rent after losing income during the coronavirus pandemic.

The plan would restrain courts from finalizing evictions if a tenant
