For a community to flourish, its members need to treat each other honestly and respectfully, just like a marriage. That doesn’t mean your contributions need to be free of snark or sarcasm, but we encourage you to keep them from being mean, hurtful or overly personal.

We aim to encourage healthy debate on relevant real estate topics. That’s why we provide a platform for posting questions and comments relating to topics like buying and selling, renovation, gardening, real estate, and quality-of-life issues relating to home ownership, in the form of our boards. What we don’t permit on our boards are promotional posts by contractors and other service providers – though they may respond to general reader questions, or to specific negative reviews. And please don’t use our boards to post real estate listings, product promotions or notices of events – we want to foster dialogue among our users, not provide a place for businesses to shill their services through faked testimonials.

But here’s the flip side: if you use our boards, you have to take responsibility for any questions or comments that you post.

To the extent you may feel compelled to provide negative feedback about real estate brokerage or other service providers like a contractors, please keep your comments factual and to the point and avoid hyperbolic language and broad disparagements of character. You may be convinced of your own righteousness, but it’s a good way to get sued. In the event your comments or postings do cause the subject to pursue legal redress, we may be compelled to disclose your personal information. We have neither the time nor the money to fall on our sword to protect negative comments that we have no way of knowing are true or not.

In short, be smart, be thoughtful and enjoy: Midland-Odessa is an incredible place to live and is the epicenter of real estat in this community.
