Adirondack "By Owner", LLC Owner's Notice

Adirondack "By Owner", LLC is not a real estate broker or agent.  We are an advertising service for individuals who are selling or renting their personally owned real estate on a "by owner" basis. We charge a yearly listing fee to advertise on our website. We make no commission if you sell or rent your property as a result of our advertising services.  If you list your property on our website, any interested parties must contact you directly if they are interested in your property and/or to obtain additional information about your property.  We are not your agent and we cannot supply any information to the public about your property other than the information you provide to us when you complete the listing process.  We urge you to consult with an attorney before attempting to sell or rent real estate on a "by owner" basis and especially before entering into any contract, agreement, or lease relating to the sale or rental of real estate.

Once you activate your property listing with us, no refunds will be given if you discontinue your listing before the expiration of your paid period, regardless of the reason. 

Only one property is permitted per listing. However, if the units are connected or adjacent (close in proximity) to one another, you may post them as a single listing.

You must provide accurate, truthful information when posting your listing, including its location and amenities.  If we discover one or more significant inaccuracies in the information provided in your listing, your listing may be removed without refund.  Please note that we do require that the contact phone number and email address associated with your listing to be your own -- not that of a real estate broker or agent.  Providing contact information for a friend, family member or employee who manages the property for you is acceptable.  Real estate brokers and agents may only list property that they personally own.  Substitution of properties is not permitted.  Failure to abide by these policies may result in a listing being removed without refund.

While we do not become involved in individual disputes or grievances between the public and the property owners listed on our website, we do make an internal record of complaints from the public and reserve the right to remove properties at our discretion based on one or more complaints. If we receive a complaint about your property, you will be notified and offered a chance to respond. We reserve the right to remove any property listing at our discretion based upon one or more complaints received from the public, in which event you will receive a pro rata refund of your listing fee, less a $50 service fee.

Adirondack "By Owner", LLC Rental Review Policy (vacation rental listings only):
You will be alerted by email of any review that is submitted for your property. When you log onto the Owner’s Administration Page, click rental review on the left panel and you will be able to read reviews and approve/dispute new reviews. If you approve a review, you will also have an opportunity to provide an owner’s response. You have 45 days to approve or dispute a review. If you take no action at all within 45 days, the review will be posted unless we determine the language/tone to be inappropriate. Reviews may be disputed only for: inappropriate language/tone or the reviewer did not stay at your property. If you dispute a posted review, the reviewer will have up to 90 days to challenge your dispute. If the reviewer challenges your dispute, we will make the final decision as to whether the review should be posted. A review may not be disputed solely because it is negative. As noted, the only bases for challenging a review are that it contains inappropriate language/tone or that the reviewer did not stay at your property. If your challenge to a review is denied and the review is posted, you will have an opportunity to add an owner’s response. If you take no action at all within 45 days, the review will be posted unless we determine the language/tone to be inappropriate. You may, at any time, elect not to participate in our review program, in which case no reviews will be published with your listing. All final decisions as to whether a review shall be posted shall be the sole discretion of Adirondack "By Owner", LLC. Reviews are the sole opinions of the reviewer and, as a condition of listing your property on our website, you agree to indemnify and hold Adirondack "By Owner", LLC harmless as to any injury that you claim has resulted to you or others due to one or more reviews.
