Where Real Estate Gets Its Dirt

RE/MAX Settles…2 down 3 to go?

RE/MAX settles buyer broker commission lawsuits for $55 million

“The Settlement resolves all claims in the Lawsuits and similar claims on a nationwide basis against RE/MAX … and releases RE/MAX and the Company, their subsidiaries and affiliates, and RE/MAX sub-franchisors, franchisees and their sales associates in the United States from the Claims,” the SEC filing reads.

“By the terms of the Settlement, RE/MAX agreed to pay a total settlement amount of $55.0 million … into a qualified settlement fund. In addition, RE/MAX agreed to make certain changes to its business practices.”

Once again, if I’m proven right about the lawsuits being settled, I’m going to be unbearable. 😈

  1. If these previous deals are any guide NAR will end up settling very cheaply, without admitting any wrong doing, and with no material effect to their business. Sounds like a good deal to me.
