Aftermath: Top 10 Lessons on Representing Sellers (July 21st)

No two real estate transactions are the same. Decisions need to be made based on options presents. Sometimes all attributes of a legal contract are not considered which may negatively impact the sellers being represented. Misunderstandings, misrepresentation, and miscommunication can all contribute and be avoided.

Every licensed real estate agent has a fiduciary obligation to represent their client in the client’s best interest. However, the fear of litigation and arbitration can cause agents to be reserved in asserting themselves during times of disagreement. Agents need to know how they can fulfill their obligation without creating a bigger problem for everyone involved.

During this session we will identify the top topics of real estate transactions omitted from conversations that affect the representation and their seller directly. These are real issues, real transactions and real temptations that could have been avoided. You will learn how to recognize them, explore options and reduce the sellers from being negatively impacted.

Course Objective:
1. To improve understanding of common legal issues involved in real estate transactions.
2. To provide the “best practices” as to these issues.
3. To educate as to the avoidance of common mistakes in real estate transactions.
