WEBSITE SERVICES GENERALLY

The Website Services allow for searching and posting of information relating to retirement properties. All information posted for retirement properties is posted by third parties, such as real estate agents, property owners, management companies, and others.

Company does not verify the accuracy of any information regarding properties or the experience or background of the third parties posting such information. Each user is solely responsible for verifying such information prior to either contacting an agent relating to a particular property or making any financial, legal or other commitment. Users should always confer with financial and legal advisors prior to making any financial, legal or other commitment relating to properties promoted through the Website.

Property listings might include contact information for real estate agents who can assist users with considering the applicable properties. All such agents are independent from Company, and Company takes no responsibility for any actions or omissions committed by any such agents. The legal relationship between any users and a listed agent will be defined under separate documentation entered into between users and the agents.

There is no charge by the Website for visitors use of the Website Services. However, if a property is sold to a user of the Website Services through an agent who was introduced to the user through the Website, then the agent will provide certain compensation to Company pursuant to a separate agreement between the agent and Company.
