Disclosure and Inspection & We’re Under Contract…Now What? 3 CE – Instructor: John Gillam
In today’s market, brokers are so busy that more and more things fall between the cracks. One of the biggest areas that causes liability is lack disclosure and not handling the inspection process properly, resulting in complaints and law suits. There is a lot of misunderstanding of what a broker should be doing and the proper ways in which inspection / inspection issues should be handled and it is one of the least covered areas in real estate education. Don’t be left exposed! This course will help you learn ways to properly:
Disclose material defects during your listing
Understand how to avoid slandering a property and damaging your buyer or seller
Make disclosure to the opposing party
Handle Inspections (it probably is NOT what you have been doing!)
Handle Resolutions and Concessions or other creative options
We’re Under Contract…Now What? 4 CE – Instructor: John Gillam
This class is designed to walk Brokers through the different areas of due diligence that are laid out in a purchase contract, including Title, Appraisal, Septic, Water Rights, Inspection (which / what do you recommend and what liability do you take as a broker here), etc. We will also do a basic exploration of the due diligence that should commonly be made during Farm / Ranch and Commercial transactions. The first portion of the class is heavily directed at making sure the general broker knows what / how they should be approaching walking their clients through their respective obligations in the contract and how to set up systems to avoid common mistakes! This will help brokers to feel confident that they are reducing their own risk / liability by making sure their clients are pursuing as many sources of information / investigation as they can!
