Article Regarding Predatory Agreement with Homeowners by MV Realty: ‘The Inequities Are Just So Great’

Rebekah Lusk was interviewed by a reporter writing a story on predatory practices of MV Realty, a company marketing a few hundred dollars in exchange for exclusive rights to sell a homeowner’s property for 40 years. Should a homeowner violate the agreement, they must pay 3% of the value of the home. Even if heirs who are unaware of the agreement violate it, they, too, must pay the penalty. The inequities of the agreements are cause of great concern to our attorneys, as well as several national and state realty organizations and government agencies.
