Passed Legislation to Correct Antiquated Restrictions on Marketing of “Out of State” Homes


A few states retain restrictions on the marketing and sales of subdivisions in other states. Born out of land scams of the 1960’s – a few state laws survive that make it impossible for prospective customers to obtain any information from builders about housing developments. 

Stateside Solution:  

Stateside was retained to manage a project to change the remaining state laws and make home buying easier. 

Working in two states, Stateside: 

  • Researched current laws, regulations and enforcement policies to confirm the current status of the law.
  • Retained lobbyists in two states on behalf of the client.
  • Produced collateral material for the campaign, which was customized for each state.
  • Used Groups meetings to reach out to state legislative leaders and attorneys general about the proposed changes.
  • Assisted in the development of legislative language.
  • Managed negotiations with state regulators and other state players on behalf of the client.
  • Drafted testimony and arranged for witnesses at legislative hearings. 


New laws supported by the client were passed in two states.
