SoCal Realtors: How to Avoid A Legal Ass-Kicking

In times like these, few would question the wisdom of obtaining sound legal advice.

This is especially true when your profession of choice is known nationally for it's general lack of a moral compass, alongside that of used car salesmen, subprime mortgage lenders and personal injury attorneys.

So let's just take for example the profession of real estate agent.

The California Association of Realtors is now taking steps to better educate its association members of the important do's and don'ts when facing today's volatile real estate market, such as the tips highlighted within this helpful video prepared by the C.A.R. and its legal defense team.

Isn't it refreshing to know that American home realtors everywhere will now start to take copious notes of conversations with buyers, make full verbal disclosures, steer buyers to 3 or more competitive mortgage lenders for quotes, and avoid predatory lending outfits altogether?

That's just Super-Duper and Fan-damn-tastic!

This is unfu@king believable.

I would have never found this on my own. Clearly, realtors are beginning to understand that we buyers are in control and will take them to task if they try and screw us.

Sellers beware!

I don't know who told the real estate industry that they were above the law, but they're busting 'em right and left.
