What’s this settlement about?

According to the lawsuit documents, Defendants made up rules that require home sellers to pay too much to real estate agents and brokers. In other words, they overcharged everyone.

Who is eligible for a refund?

In short, if you sold a home during the time indicated for your area, your home was listed on the MLS, and you paid a commission to a real estate brokerage, you may be entitled to compensation.

There are three requirements to qualify:

  • You sold a home during the eligible date range;
  • You or your agent listed the home on the MLS (this is common) anywhere in the USA;
  • You paid a commission to any real estate broker in connection with the sale of the home.

You do not need to have sold a home using an Anywhere, RE/MAX, or Keller Williams agent to make a claim.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?

For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, more than one person is represented by the lawsuit. In other words, plaintiff(s) file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by but aren’t involved in the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that later was determined to be involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation. If you’re included in the class (group) affected, you can file a claim to receive money, coupons, or replacement products. But, each case is different, and each will specify who is included. In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase, receipts, or other specified documentation is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
