Competition and Real Estate by State
||Allows choice of brokerage services
||Allows brokers to offer rebates to consumers
The Department of Justice is committed to preserving competition in the real estate industry through its competition advocacy efforts. Given that Maine allows real estate brokers to provide rebates to consumers and to customize their real estate service offerings to meet their customers' needs, the Department of Justice has not advocated that Maine change any of its real estate laws or regulations.
If you have any concerns with the competitive landscape of the real estate industry in Maine or any other state, please contact the Department of Justice at RealEstateCompetition@usdoj.gov.
