Online Backup for Real Estate Brokers in Missouri

Since today’s blog focuses on the Show-Me State, we’re going to do just that. If you’re a real estate broker in Missouri, you’re required to retain your transaction records for a minimum of three (3) years according to the Missouri Real Estate Commission.  Here’s the actual document that outlines these regulations, http://pr.mo.gov/boards/realestate/November%202009%20MREC%20Rule%20Book.pdf. On page 54 is the rule CSR 2250-8.160 regarding Retention of Records that’s available for any Broker to review for themselves.

Here is a video we created that talks about the benefits of using online backup versus traditional methods of data storage like cardboard boxes and CDs.

Missouri seems pretty reasonable with their record retention requirements. Three (3) years isn’t too bad to have to hold on to hard copy files. Just remember, that there is a square footage cost issue surrounding boxes stored in offices that we always blog about and the possibility of natural disasters (fire, flood & storm damage) that might never affect your business, however, one incident can bring your entire operation to a grinding halt if you don’t use a solution like online backup. Considering the current storms in Missouri, we strongly recommend that small businesses in these areas seriously consider online backup in their business continuity planning.

If you’d like to learn more about online backup as an option for your business, give us a call at 1 877 310-2884 and one of our Backup Specialists will be pleased to continue this conversation with you.
