Real Estate Advertisement Regulations in Maryland


“Advertisement” means any oral, written or print and media advertisement, including newspaper and magazine advertisements; correspondence; mailings; brochures; business cards; for sale or for lease signs; sign riders; promotional items; newsletters; telephone directorylistings; automobile signage; as well as internet, radio and television advertisement.

All advertisements to be placed by a real estate licensee, including licensed or unlicensed personal assistants, shall be promptly submitted to the broker or office manager (or the designee of the broker or office manager) for review and audit to ensure compliance with established company policy and the requirements of federal and Maryland law, prior to the placement of such advertisements.

Following such review and audit as to each advertisement to be placed, the real estate licensee shall be advised of any inconsistency in such advertisement. Upon notice of such inconsistency, the real estate licensee shall immediately undertake to correct the inconsistency noted and ensure that such inconsistency does not occur with respect to advertisement to be placed in the future. 

This is a Maryland Real Estate Commission announcement.

Roy Kelley - This is good information for agents in your area to know. Several years ago we were warned about real estate advertising rules and those that didn't comply were notified.

It is important for licensees in all states know the regulations that apply to them.

I think it is so important for agents to know the rules and regulations.  It is never good to be caught by surprise and then get a heft fine to go with it.  Thanks for sharing!
