Competition in Real Estate

Burnett Trial Verdict

An eight-person jury in Kansas City, Missouri recently returned a verdict against NAR and other corporate defendants in the case of Burnett v. NAR et al.

NAR stands by the fact that its guidance for local MLS broker marketplaces ensures consumers get comprehensive, equitable, transparent and reliable home information and that brokerages of any size, service or pricing model get a fair shot at competing. NAR will continue to focus on our mission to advocate for homeownership and always put consumer interests first.

This matter is not close to final, as NAR will appeal the jury’s verdict. It will likely be several years before this case is finally resolved.
