PDX Real Estate 143: The Best of Masters in Real Estate – April/May Edition The Portland Real Estate Podcast

    • Business

On May 11, a federal judge permanently blocked Oregon’s ban on ‘love letters,’ calling it a violation of homebuyers’ First Amendment rights. And most REALTORS are glad that the ‘love letter’ is still an option.
But what does this mean in practice? How do brokers plan to leverage ‘love letters’ moving forward? And what can real estate professionals do to promote fair housing and help prevent the discrimination the ban was supposed to address?
On this episode of the Portland Real Estate Podcast, cohosts Joe Fustolo and Steve Nassar dig into the top posts in the Masters in Real Estate Facebook group over the last couple of months, beginning with the ruling on the ‘love letter’ ban and how these personal messages can be used appropriately.
Joe and Steve share their take on the controversy over CC-ing another agent’s transaction coordinator and what’s behind the trend to ask about pending listings prices.
Listen in for insight around the ongoing fight for public access to Oswego Lake and learn what to expect from the current market correction—and what steps you can take to be inflation-proof.
