Due Diligence & Agency Representation

“We’re under contract…now what?” This course provides real world clarity on your role in the contract process- one of the greatest areas of liability and lack of value by clients.

We’ll delve into the different areas of due diligence outlined in a purchase contract, and help you understand who is responsible for what, and what the common areas are that many of us may not feel as comfortable about explaining to our clients (or truly understand for ourselves), including:

  • Title
  • Appraisal
  • Septic
  • Inspection (which/what do you recommend and what liability do you take as a broker here)
  • And more!

You’ll gain an understanding of what you’re required to disclose as material/latent defects vs. stigmatizing information, how we stay in our lane professionally and ethically, and how to reduce liability while simultaneously increasing value to our clients.

You’ll also gain strategies to walk clients through their respective obligations in the contract and how to avoid common mistakes. This approach ensures brokers can confidently reduce their risk and liability by encouraging thorough information gathering and investigation by their clients.
