September’s Missed Opportunity for Giving

MissedOpportunitySeptember2013Every month on our Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter accounts, we share the missed opportunity for giving – the amount that could have been donated to the community if every Realtor® in the Austin area donated 25% of their commission the way that Give Realty’s agents do.

Given the total sales volume of $718,190,762.00 in the Austin MLS in September, the missed opportunity for giving last month was $10,772,861.43.

This money could have paid for 100% of the 2012 expenses of some of our favorite community nonprofts, including Austin Humane Society, CASA of Travis County, Meals on Wheels and More, SafePlace or Saint Louise House.
