Offering of Inducements in Maryland Real Estate Advertisements

 

Does the advertisement offer inducements to buyers or sellers other than inducements involving a contest; element of chance; lottery; drawing; or other such mechanism by which a prize or anything of value is to be awarded based upon the luck of the draw or other such limited criteria?

The offering of compensation or anything of value by way of a contest; element of chance; lottery; drawing; or other mechanism by which a prize or anything of value is to be awarded is PROHIBITED by law in Maryland.

This information was provided by the Maryland Real Estate Commission.
