Learn how to spot red flags and what to do once they have been identified.

Real estate professionals are held to a standard of reporting if they find something that is a “red flag” (a visual sign or indication of a defect), yet many are inadequately informed of what qualifies as a red flag and what their responsibility is when they find one. You are not responsible for a full inspection – a home inspector is – but since you have exposure to the home, there is an obligation to disclose what you see.

Red flags always cause negotiations and can threaten sales, but they can be especially troublesome in a buyers market, when buyers can afford to be picky about many issues. And with as much inventory as we currently have, the individuals who are looking to buy these properties are more likely to be investors who are generally more familiar with these issues. Recent legislation has directed you with the responsibility of inspecting properties for “red flags” – especially an extreme issue such as asbestos or mold. Brokers and agents who understand and comply with their state's disclosure laws stand a better chance of avoiding legal liability or a sale falling through.

Limit your personal risk by being better informed of what to look for and how to correctly respond to the finding.

Topics:

  • Red Flags overview
  • Specific issues such as asbestos and hazardous vegetation
  • Disclosure law compliance
  • How to communicate findings.

There is not always a right or wrong answer. Rather, the answer depends on the many nuances in financing commercial transactions!
When a commercial property owner lists their property for sales and the buyer submits a purchase offer, the pre-qualification is different than applying for a residential mortgage.  In a residential mortgage, the lender can pre-qualify a borrower based on their personal income and credit.  In a commercial loan, the lender can give a rough estimate based on property type, loan-to-value ratio and net operating income. This course will give the basic understanding of commercial real estate financing and general metrics used by lenders.

Topics Include:

  • Types of Lenders
  • Types of Loans
  • Key Commercial Mortgage Metrics
  • Rates
  • Prepayment Penalties
  • Loan Applications/Submissions

This course is a core elective.

Qualifying Broker 2

Perplexed by property management?  You are not alone – but the confusion can be addressed and money made!!

Property management is a very prominent aspect in the field of commercial real estate.  This category of commercial real estate can be heavily regulated, dependent on locale, and in most areas it is typically overseen at the municipal level by specific commissions or licensure boards. The law of a particular region will help shape the framework, but the elementary principles that are involved in the actual day to day tasks of property management remain the same. Commercial real estate, as applied to property management, focuses on principles, and where applicable local laws and standards, to help get a broad view of the subject.
 

Topics Include:

  • Functions and property management
  • Responsibilities in the field
  • Protocol for managers
  • Basic rules in commercial real estate
