Fact or fiction? Your social media accounts must link to consumer notices

Fact or fiction? If you use your social media accounts for real estate business, the Texas Real Estate Commission requires you to have a link from those accounts to the Consumer Protection Notice and the Information About Brokerage Services notice.

Fact. TREC requires you to provide a link to the Consumer Protection Notice and a completed Information About Brokerage Services notice in a readily noticeable place on the homepage of your business websites. The term “business website” means a website—including social media—that is accessible to the public, has content controlled by the license holder, and has information about the license holder’s real estate business.

For social media accounts, the links may be located in the account’s profile or on a separate page or website through a direct link from the social media platform or profile.
