  • Protecting Yourself from Real Estate Scams: Spotting Sophisticated Criminals

    Real estate scams are becoming more sophisticated, making it harder for buyers and sellers to protect themselves from fraud. While many scams are easy to spot, such as someone posing as a real estate agent asking for money upfront, others can be more subtle and require a trained eye to detect. Sophisticated criminals often use tactics like creating fake websites or social media profiles, using stolen or fake identities, and manipulating documents to appear legitimate. They may also use high-pressure sales tactics or offer deals that seem too good to be true to lure in unsuspecting victims. To protect yourself from real estate scams, it’s important to do your due diligence and thoroughly research any individual or company you’re considering working with. This includes verifying their credentials and licenses, checking reviews and ratings, and confirming their physical office location.

  • Addressing Racial Bias in Home Appraisals: NAREB Conference Solutions

    Racial bias in home appraisals has long been a problem in the real estate industry. Black homeownership rates have suffered due to undervaluation of homes owned by people of color, making it harder for them to sell their homes or access financing. The National Association of Real Estate Brokers (NAREB) is taking steps to address this issue through their upcoming mid-winter conference in San Diego. The NAREB conference will focus on reducing bias in underrepresented fields like home appraisals and identifying and overcoming barriers that Black women face in homeownership. By addressing racial biases in the real estate industry, the conference aims to promote equal opportunity in housing.
