In 2007, the real estate brokerage Realtysellers shut down after alleging that the CREA and Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) had modified their rules to hinder flat-fee MLS services on behalf of those selling houses themselves. In 2010, the CREA settled with the Competition Bureau, and agreed to allow flat-fee listings. However, some real estate boards continued to bar the practice, citing interpretations of provincial laws requiring those trading in real estate to be licensed. Flat-free providers disputed the argument, claiming that their services were no different than posting listings on classifieds, and that they were not necessarily trading. In 2015, the Competition Bureau began a federal case against the TREB by Realitysellers

Florida is a large subtropical state that experiences hurricanes. Although Brevard county is located along Florida’s eastern peninsula, it is less frequently impacted by direct hurricane landfalls than portions of the Panhandle or South Florida. There are two predominant reasons for this. First, westward moving tropical systems often reach an atmospheric ridge weakness in the Bermuda High by the time they approach Florida at a latitude as northerly as Brevard County. Combined with frontal systems that exit the United States’ East Coast, many of these tropical systems are steered northwest and eventually curve northward offshore along Florida’s East Central Coast. A second reason is that hurricanes landfalling along the Florida peninsula Gulf Coast often weaken to a tropical storm by the time they move northeast to affect Brevard County (with some exceptions, such as 2004’s Charley). No major hurricane, defined as category 3 or higher, has ever struck Brevard since 1850, the beginning of recorded climate.
