Legal Q&A | Can a listing agent advertise the terms of owner-financing being offered by their client?

QUESTION: We have a seller client who is willing to offer owner financing in order to attract potential buyers. She has asked us to advertise the terms of the loan she is willing to make including the minimum down payment, the term of the loan, and the interest rate. Are we permitted to include these loan terms in our MLS listing? If so, what are the applicable guidelines?
