Advertising Sold Prices Reminder & Additional Licensing Exams - Friday

Advertising Sold Prices Reminder

Advertising as “sold” by buyer's brokerage:

If the transaction hasn’t closed, and the buyer's brokerage wants to advertise a property as “sold” (all conditions met unrelated to title), the buyer brokerage's must obtain written permission from both the buyer and seller/seller’s brokerage in order to advertise. After the transaction has closed, the buyer's broker only needs the buyer's written permission to advertise the sale.  The advertisement must clearly state the brokerage represented the buyer only in the transaction. This written permission must advise what they are advertising and an expiry date.
