Some thoughts on Expired Listings:
At 3.15%, the median 30-year, fixed-rate mortgage set another record. It’s down from last week’s 3.24% and the lowest since Freddie Mac started tracking in 1971.
Lawsuits cost a ton of money even if you prevail, and aggressive lawyers are filing lawsuits against property managers and landlords that ban all rental candidates with a criminal history. It’s not strictly illegal, but a HUD statement says it likely violates the Fair Housing Act.
Realtor A’s listing excited Realtor B – just what his clients want. But after Realtor B scheduled a showing, he said the commission in the MLS wasn’t high enough. After failing to convince Realtor A, he then included a higher commission in the contract. That’s wrong – right?
Noting an “increase in violations and tempers” during the COVID-19 pandemic, a condo board wants to boost its enforcement powers and fine unit owners who break the rules. But details count. Any new enforcement process might create more problems than it solves.
It’s vital to review all advertisements, MLS entries and public-facing messages to make sure they comply with the Fair Housing Act and related laws that exist at all levels – local, state and federal. Realtors have been sued over accidental mistakes in the past.
