Earlier this week we started a buzz with a Tweet we sent out:


The tweet was from research we did for an upcoming SEVRAR Magazine article due out next week. It generated some calls, emails and forum discussions for our Data Integrity department. Therefore, we decided to release the Top 10 Violations of 2013 a little early. Not much has changed since we did this last year. You can read up on each rule on this page:


Rank Violation Name Violation Type
1 Self Reported Non-Penalty
2 Access Codes Found in Wrong Field* Penalty
3 No Exterior Photo of the Front of Dwelling* Penalty

6 Contact Info in a Public Field Penalty
7 Incorrect in Closed Status (False Sale) Penalty
8 Open House info in Public Field Penalty
9 Dwelling Type Incorrect Non-Penalty
10 Special Listing Conditions Non-Penalty
* These violations are system detected  by our monitoring compliance software.
