A proposed class action lawsuit has been filed targeting seven of the largest brokerages in the country, alleging that these companies engaged in anticompetitive behavior. The lawsuit aims to include individuals who listed their properties for sale on a Multiple Listing Service (MLS) with an agent from one of these brokerages since 2019.

The lawsuit claims that the seven brokerages, which hold significant market shares, engaged in practices that resulted in artificially inflated commission fees paid by sellers.
