Earlier this week, I took the mandatory 3-hour Legal Update and the 3-hour Ethics courses to renew my real estate license. The concept that surprised most of the agents in the class: we are not to disclose the sales price of homes that have sold. Yes, we can discuss the solds with clients. Yes, we can show the information as part of a comparative market analysis. But we cannot leave the information in print form with anyone who is not a licensee.
Information that is recorded at the court house includes the amount of the loan, if there is one. The final sales price of the home, however, is not recorded.
How many agents do you know who disclose the sales prices of homes? They shouldn't be doing that!
