  • Use the Buyer’s Inspection Advisory and Waiver, and the Market Condition Advisory forms
  • Use the Statewide Buyer and Seller Advisory
  • Watch out for outdated reports or incomplete disclosures
  • Be on the lookout for title issues
  • Pay special attention to the Natural Hazards Report
  • Don’t give assurances
  • Understand the risks of non-contingent offers and liquidated damages
  • Be thorough in your investigation prior to putting in an offer
  • Buyers: Ensure that all issues with the property are adequately disclosed

Class Overview:

Whether it’s your listing or another agent’s you can get buyers and listings IF you know how to effectively hold houses open. Unfortunately, most agents waste their time at open houses because they don’t have a system or specific training. Instead, they just open the doors and hope people come. They are losing out on a huge opportunity to get more buyers and potential listings.

Would knowing the following increase your effectiveness at open houses?

  • Turning open house “suspects” into prospects.
  • Tricks for increasing traffic by 300%.
  • Why listing agents really want an open house in a low-inventory market.
  • Turning open house marketing into a listing tool.
  • Why the most serious buyers often seem to be the most disinterested.
  • How to find out if buyers truly have an agent.

The REALTOR® Action Fund

When it comes to advocacy REALTORS® band together as the REALTOR® Party, which is a powerful alliance of REALTORS® working to protect and promote homeownership and private property rights.

Simply put, the REALTOR® Party promotes policies and candidates that support your ability to do business, but we need your help. You can help by INVESTING in the REALTOR® Action Fund, (RAF). With the resources provided by the REALTOR® Action Fund we fight threats of costly rules, taxes, and regulations such as proposed taxes on services (your commission), fireplace retrofits, and point of sale regulations.

The REALTOR® Action Fund Victories

  • SCCAOR defeated a Bay Area wide fireplace replacement mandate that would have cost your clients on average over two thousand dollars at the point of sale.
  • SCCAOR defeated a City of Santa Clara proposed ordinance that would have discriminated against renters that are unrelated and share a household, and placing a burden on property owners to enforce.
  • Last year we defeated a tax on conventional mortgages that would have cost the average California homebuyer over $8,000 on the cost of their mortgage.
  • Thanks to the RAF we have been able to defeat service taxes,that would have taxed your commission.
  • RAF has helped us defend the mortgage interest deduction from being eliminated.
