Luxury Home Marketing Group May Focus:
Impact of New Regulations on the Luxury Home Marketing Place
Members of the Raleigh-based Luxury Home Marketing Group discussed the potential impact of pending regulations on buyer and sellers in the Luxury Home marketplace. A group discussion outlined the anticipated changes in the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA), and how to prepare home buyers and sellers for the changes.
“Our group’s strengths include continuing education and networking what we learn with each other,” said LHMG President Jill Rekuc. “Changes to RESPA may delay the amount of time it takes to close a home, cost homebuyers more in attorney’s fees and change how certain administrative tasks are handled. Knowing about these changes early helps us prepare our clients to know what to expect.”
Additionally, Denise Beatty of Towne Mortgage of the Carolinas (NMLS#512138) shared information on new Jumbo Mortgage programs with the group, with down payments as low as 5%.
