You could be eligible to cash in on the NAR settlement.

How it works: Eligibility to file a claim is determined by where homeowners sold, through which MLS, and whether it was within a window dating back to 2014. The guidelines are:

  • Sellers in western Illinois counties who listed on MARIS MLS between April 29, 2014 through Feb. 1, 2024;
  • Listed on Metro MLS and NorthstarMLS in parts of Wisconsin between March 6, 2015 through Feb. 1, 2024.

By the numbers: A total of $208,500,000 will be distributed to claimants.

What's next: In order to be considered, you must file a form by May 9.
