Gone are the days when hackers would only target retailers. These days, the bad guys an target businesses in any industry, especially those that aren't quite up on cyber security.
The real estate industry is one such group, and according to a recent survey, about half of businesses in the real estate industry are not prepared to handle a cyber attack. Federal law requires some industries, like hospitals and banks, to have some type of security in place for things like that, but the real estate industry is quite vulnerable. Click here to read more on some of the threats you should look out for if you're in the real estate industry.

IRS Guidance Out on 20% Business Income Deduction
The Internal Revenue Service issued proposed regulations today for a new provision allowing many owners of sole proprietorships, partnerships, trusts and S corporations to deduct 20 percent of their qualified business income. The new qualified business income deduction is available for tax years beginning after Dec. 31, 2017. Taxpayers can claim it for the first time on the 2018 federal income tax return they file next year.
The deduction will have a significant, beneficial impact on NAR’s membership. The National Association of Realtors® believes that this deduction, included in today’s IRS and Treasury Department release of proposed regulations, will be available to a wide range of real estate professionals, including those who are self-employed as well as those operating through partnerships, LLCs, and S corporations. We will continue thoroughly reviewing the rule and will be releasing more information when that process is completed
NAR tax reform summary and resources.
“The Incline Village remains strong with average prices increasing slightly across all property types.
The average home sale price increased to $1,457,000, and condominiums are up to $534,631 which yields a conservative change of +8% and +4% respectively.
Inventory continues below normal and open escrow numbers remain high which is also driving prices higher.” Incline Village REALTORS® MLS Chair Trevor Smith
