Luxury Home Marketing Group August Focus:
Consumer Protection Rules and the Luxury Home Market

Raleigh’s Luxury Home Marketing Group focused on upcoming rules changes which may affect home buyers and sellers, starting this October.

“The Consumer Finance Protection Bureau (CFPB) has a series of new rules for homebuyers and sellers, beginning this fall,” said LHMG President Jill Rekuc. “We share information about regulation changes like this as part of our ongoing education among our membership. It’s one of the advantages we deliver to our clients, via the Luxury Home Marketing Group.”

Denise Beatty of Towne Mortgage of the Carolinas (NMLS#51213) outlined the details of the proposed changes. She briefed members on the rules, and indicated that while they were new regulations, they were unlikely to cause closing delays. The members discussed how important it is to have a close relationship with their staff and closing attorneys to ensure a smooth closing process.

August’s homes tour included the following homes: 2109 Mountain High Road, Wakefield, Wake Forest, represented by Linda Bird Kolarov, and 1020 Dickinson Circle, Chatsworth, Raleigh, represented by Kathy Beacham.
