VIDEO: Copyright Program Follow-Up

Nearly all members have agreed to the updated copyright terms in REsearch. Thank you! With the agreement deadline of March 1 coming up, we’re back with a quick update, and also answer a follow up question: “When does HIS assert copyright over listing data?” We explain how the SLAA determines which listings are included in our quarterly copyright filings.

Latest REsearch Enhancements

We’re happy to deliver another set of improvements to REsearch, inspired by valuable feedback from members like you!

Printable Infographics


We already provide monthly market statistics infographics for Kauai and Hawaii Island, which are designed to be easily shared online. We are now providing these same infographics in higher-resolution, printable PDF format as well! This pairs well with the more detailed PDF reports you can get from our new market stats presentation.

Easier Code Lookups for Sale Reporting


When reporting a sale in which the buying agent is not a member of HIS, you are prompted to provide a non-member code instead of a Sold Agent ID in REsearch. To make it easier to find the correct non-member code, we’ve added a link to the Report Sale screen under the Listings Menu to the non-member code list in our Knowledge Base!

For reference, here are the codes you’ll find:

  • 1799 – Buyer Not Represented
  • 2311 – Non Participant: Real estate agent on Hawaii Island or Kauai who is not a member of HIS.
  • 9033 – Oahu Reciprocal Agent – Real estate agent on Oahu who is not a member of HIS.
  • 9035 – Maui Reciprocal Agent – Real estate agent on Maui who is not a member of HIS.
  • 9036 – Mainland Reciprocal Agent – Real estate agent on mainland who is not a member of HIS.
  • 1792 – For Sale By Owner (FSBO)
  • 2309 – Developer

Also: Updates for Co-Listors, Tax History, Email!

Here are a few other improvements we’ve made this month:

  • Co-Listors can now update listing photos, even when affiliated with a different brokerage.
  • Tax history data is more clear, with REsearch showing what we received from each county or N/A (instead of $0) if not available.
  • Friendlier prospect email headers for email systems that display them, removing “noreply” and personalizing for each agent.

These are only the first REsearch enhancements of 2018, and there are more improvements to come! If you have a suggestion to make REsearch work better for you, please don’t hesitate to get in touch! As we hope these updates demonstrate, we’re proud to be able to be responsive to your needs and deliver improvements to better support you!
