Industry Leaders Summary (1/13/21)

Glide transaction product launch postponed

In the last few days, C.A.R. members may have read about a legal dispute between Lone Wolf Technologies (owner of the zipForm® product) and Glide Labs. C.A.R. has had longstanding relationships with Lone Wolf and Glide, both of whom are valued vendors.

This is a dispute between the two vendors, and while we hope the parties quickly and efficiently resolve their disagreement, C.A.R. is postponing the previously scheduled Jan. 14 launch of Glide as a new member benefit to allow time for the two parties or the court, if necessary, to resolve the issues.

To help answer any questions members may have, C.A.R. has prepared the Frequently Asked Questions linked here.

If members have additional questions regarding the dispute, please contact zipForm® (info@lwolf.com) or Glide (support@glide.com) directly.

Market Stats

California’s housing market continues its upward trend with an uptick in both closed and pending sales last week. In addition, the number of homeowners in forbearance dipped last week. However, the U.S. lost jobs in December for the first time since the recovery began, business confidence dipped slightly, and the public health crisis has presented us with our most challenging days yet. Read the full write up here.

Check out our weekly survey here.
