LEGAL FAQ:

Internet Advertising Checklist
Q: Is there any checklist I can use to determine if my Internet ads generally comply with the rules and regulations?

A: Yes. While this checklist may not be comprehensive, it sets out many compliance issues.

1. Does the ad contain any misleading statements, or does it tend to create a misleading impression in any manner? It is prudent for someone who did not design the ad to scrutinize it for any potentially misleading statements. Keep in mind that the standard is not whether a statement is true, but whether the advertisement "tends to create a misleading impression."

2. Does the ad contain the name of the real estate firm or broker?

3. Does the ad identify the professional or license status of people in the ad? It might be prudent to identify the license status of all individuals and firms named in the ad, either specifically or globally. Use of the term REALTOR® may be used to identify this status.

4. Is a real estate salesperson's name the only name that appears in the ad? If so, be sure to include the name of the salesperson’s broker.

5. Does the person causing the ad to be published have proper authority to publish or submit the advertisement?

6. Is the price quoted the price agreed upon by the owner?

7. If any service is offered as "free of charge," make sure that the service is not tied to or contingent upon any service for which the REALTOR® is to be compensated.

8. If any inducements are offered, does the ad fully describe the conditions for inducements?

9. Is any ownership interest in the property held by the REALTOR® disclosed?

10. If any loan information is advertised, does the ad comply with requirements of Regulation Z?

11. Does the ad inadvertently imply a limitation or preference to a protected class that could potentially violate fair housing laws?

12. Is the specific information related in the advertisement accurate?

LEGAL FAQ:

Compliance with Fair-Housing Laws

Q: Is it a fair-housing violation if an ad says "Walk to Central Market" or "Easy walk to neighborhood schools"? Does this type of ad discriminate against handicapped people?

A: These ads would not appear to be violations of fair-housing laws. HUD memoranda have indicated that ads containing descriptions of properties (great view, fourth-floor walk-up, walk-in closets), services or facilities (jogging trails), or neighborhoods (walk to bus stop) do not violate the act.

Avoid pitfalls when buying a home. Trust the professional service of an Alice Board of Realtors® member - the real estate experts.

I had a relatively painless experience buying my first home last year, thanks in large part to the guidance of my Texas REALTOR®. Unfortunately, two of my friends who recently bought homes had some tough lessons to learn about reining in their eagerness during the process.

Do not list your property "For Sale by Owner." Get professional help and avoid hassles and headaches by dealing with a trusted expert - an Alice Realtor®.

A friend of mine once commented that a person can walk into an auto dealership and drive away in a $100,000 car a few hours later. So why, he wanted to know, does it take so long to purchase a home?
