RISMEDIA, April 3, 2007-Online real estate broker Redfin Corporation has launched a real estate consumer's bill of rights, along with a petition to the National Association of Realtors for consumers to sign and a program for real estate brokers and other real estate-related organizations to support.
The bill is a set of 10 rights designed to ensure that consumers get complete and open access to information about properties and the process of buying or selling properties. Examples include the rights to choose the services you pay for, to have an open discussion about houses for sale and to see all the houses for sale.
To view the rights, visit: http://blog.redfin.com/redfin/2007/04/consumer_rights.html. Through May 1, 2007, consumers can sign the petition based on these rights at
http://www.petitiononline.com/recbr/petition.html. Real estate brokers and other real estate organizations can participate in a program supporting the bill of rights by visiting http://www.redfin.com/rights. The goal of the program is to offer consumers a choice of consumer-friendly real estate partners.
"Just about everyone in real estate agrees that real estate could be better," said Redfin CEO Glenn Kelman. "Individually, we feel helpless to make changes that together we could easily pull off. So we've set out some basic rights that we think everyone can agree to, with the idea of ensuring that real estate consumers always feel informed and in control. Our goal is to sign up brokerages large and small to support these rights, so that we can make this industry — our industry — the way consumers would want it
