The policies outlined below govern the manner in which Home Show Tours Inc. does business. The policies apply to the Site and all products and services offered by Home Show Tours Inc.
IMPORTANT – Please read thoroughly
Package details, pricing, and conditions:
All packages are for the duration of the indicated time frames and are to be paid in full either prior or at the time services are rendered. There are no refunds, prorated refunds, or early termination discounts. The client agrees not to continue the advertisement in order to draw further potential sales leads of other homes not advertised on our site.
Properties listing with an agent/broker:
Our site is agent friendly. We have absolutely no problem with you listing with an agent or agents listing on our website.
Situations develop that cause questions or concerns about listing with or leaving an agent listed property:
Situation #1) If the agent paid for the advertisement and your contract is terminated with the agent: the advertisement will be terminated regardless if you are still on the market and want to go back to selling by owner. (This policy must be enforced for it is not in the best interests of the agent/broker who paid for the advertisement).
You can create a new advertisement for the property under your own account. All fees, etc apply as a new client and a new listing.
Situation #2) If you are selling FSBO and want to list your home with an agent: Our clients who decide to list their property with an agent/broker can take advantage of all renewal discounts, etc. The agent can also continue using the same advertisement – for it is in the best interest of the homeowner who paid for the advertisement.
Situation #3) If you switch agencies or agents: If you paid for the ad, switching is no problem. If the agent paid for the ad and you are terminating your contract with that agent, the ad will be terminated as well for the same reasons listing in #1.
If the advertisement has been completed, and you have decided not to continue the advertisement – there will not be a refund. If you had the work completed, but were not able to pay at the time of the photo shoot, and decide not to continue – you will be billed for the complete ad and any other fees not collected. If you sell your property before the expiration date of your advertisement – “Awesome”! If you purchase the 6 month package and sell within 30 days – you cannot downgrade the package. In other words: There are no prorated refunds at all – no exceptions.

Our Service is Advertising, we are not agents or brokers.
Our company, it’s employees, and so forth are not licensed realtors, licensed appraisers, or realty brokers. Our service is to advertise properties for sale or rent according to the information provided by the homeowner. We reserve the right to refuse service as we see fit. Any and all decisions will be determined fairly by the owner of our company and are not to be disputed. Any advertisement that proves damaging or detrimental to our business will be denied or terminated. All information acquired through our site will be directed to the client and the client will conduct the sale. No misuse of any contact information will be tolerated. Spamming or soliciting of our clients will be viewed as harassment and will be immediately reported. Any violation of these terms can, – and will – lead to termination of the advertisement and be reported to the appropriate authorities. All costs related to the terminated advertisement indicated will be accountable for by the client, as well as any financial costs our business may encounter as a result of the violation.
MLS Package: The MLS package is a referral to a local broker/agent who will place your home on the local multiple listing service AND let you sell by owner… Home Show Tours Inc. involvement is only in the advertising. We do not collect a commission nor do we have you sign a contract. The broker/agent will have their own contract for you to sign in order to get on the MLS. Conditions of said contract are the sole responsibility of you and the broker/agent. Home Show Tours Inc. has no involvement with the agreement you enter with the agent/broker.
If you are using one or more of our signs – Placement of the sign MUST be within city regulations. Any fines or charges for not following city regulations will be the responsibility of the homeowner solely. You agree to maintain our sign within these limits and accept all responsibility for the sign. Please check with your city office for information about sign placement. The yard sign ‘must’ be maintained for the duration of the advertisement. If your property gets listed with an agent, the sign is to be maintained in the yard. If the sign is pulled, the ad will be pulled as well with no refund or chance of placing it back on the site without renewal & the sign in place again.
Any violation of these terms will lead to termination of the advertisement and will be addressed by our law firm. All costs related to the violation will be accountable for by the client, as well as any financial costs our business may encounter as a result of the violation.
