Students will learn:
- Techniques for and potential ways of working with clients to make the contract more favorable
- How to present offers to sellers to make sure they are aware of potential hidden risks and benefits
- How to work through the amendment process without risking your buyers losing their position.
- The liability of inadvertently disclosing client confidentialities
- Inherent risks found in multiple offer situations
- How to present a variety of options for seller’s to consider when responding, while avoiding the ethical dilemmas that occur when negotiating offers and discussing variable rate commissions.
A case study will explore how lack of communication with the client and the non-disclosure of a variable rate commission to sway the seller to take the listing brokers offer may create liability for both ethical complaints as well as seller harm.
This class will be delivered live. Participants may register for either in-person or virtual delivery via Zoom meeting. In-person registrants will be provided the Zoom link in case they decide to attend virtually. Masks are required for all participants.
