Pre-Sale Inspections & Local City Ordinances
All REALTORS® are urged to read, understand and adhere to the City and Sign Ordinances in the towns or cities where they list properties and post for sale and/or open home signs.
On occasion, C.A.R. asks REALTORS® to call their legislators to support or oppose proposed bills through Red Alerts and Calls for Action. C.A.R. has produced a short video to show how easy it is to respond to Red Alerts and Calls for Action by making a quick phone call.
