Real Estate Contracts

This course is for the novice and the seasoned agent.  Changes in the law deal with offers, counteroffers and other related subjects.  Those who don't know what it now requires may be breaking the law with every transaction.  New agents will learn how to connect textbook theory to professional practice with the connecting bonds of group discussions, questions and role-play.  Everyone should leave this course with a new perspective on the benefits of a well-written contract.  There will be role-playing exercises involving writing offers, counteroffers, purchase and sale agreements, Buyer's Representation Agreements, and Listing Contracts.  Students should leave this course with confidence in the ability to work with these everyday documents.

Ethics and Real Estate
