Guaranteed sales plans.
(a) As used in this Section, a "guaranteed sales plan" means a real estate purchase or sales plan whereby a licensee enters into one or more conditional or unconditional written contracts with a seller, one of which is a brokerage agreement, and wherein the person agrees to purchase the seller's property within a specified period of time, at a specific price, in the event the property is not sold in accordance with the terms of a brokerage agreement to be entered into between the sponsoring broker and the seller.
(b) A person who offers a guaranteed sales plan to consumers is engaged in licensed activity under this Act and is required to have a license.
(c) A licensee offering a guaranteed sales plan shall provide the details, including the purchase price, and conditions of the plan, in writing to the party to whom the plan is offered prior to entering into the brokerage agreement.
(d) A licensee offering a guaranteed sales plan shall provide to the party to whom the plan is offered evidence of sufficient financial resources to satisfy the commitment to purchase undertaken by the broker in the plan.
(e) A licensee offering a guaranteed sales plan shall undertake to market the property of the seller subject to the plan in the same manner in which the broker would market any other property, unless the agreement with the seller provides otherwise.
(f) The licensee may not purchase seller's property until the period for offering the property for sale has ended according to its terms or is otherwise terminated.
(g) Any licensee who fails to perform on a guaranteed sales plan in strict accordance with its terms shall be subject to all the penalties provided in this Act for violations thereof and, in addition, shall be subject to a civil fine payable to the party injured by the default in an amount of up to $25,000.
