The first item in today’s online newsletter from the Minnesota Association of Realtors is a YouTube video titled, “Filing an Ethics Complaint.”

Quick Summary: it’s easier than you think.

Two educated guesses: 1) there are a lot of seething Realtors (and non-Realtors) out there at the moment; 2) the vast majority are upset by how foreclosure sales are being handled (search “foreclosure” on this blog and you’ll get an earful).

My take? An ounce of prevention is a lot smarter and more efficient than exacting a pound of flesh.

If you’re not sure a foreclosure is for you . . it isn’t.

If it makes you feel better, the feeding frenzies attending many of these properties lately is frequently reducing, if not eliminating, any market discount.
