The relationship between a real estate agent and a client is a fiduciary one, requiring each agent to put clients' interests first and adhere to the particular standards and ethics required by law. The varied responsibilities and duties of the real estate agent to different parties may often lead to conflicts of interest. Real estate agents must be aware of these potential conflicts and must also of how to prevent and deal with them.

REAL ESTATE APPRAISAL
Approved Course Number(s):03-00-23790

Description:
  • In order to own and convey property in a market economy it is necessary for that property to be assigned a specific monetary value.
  • This process, unlike, say, that of assigning value to durable goods—which have specific materials, production and marketing costs—can be somewhat more involved.
  • With property, the fixed costs—building materials and labor costs—are always accompanied by more esoteric factors that go to make property more (or less) valuable.
  • Becoming a member of the group that understands and applies these factors is a bit more complex than simply being able to understand a balance sheet.

  • This course covers the theories, rules, duties and activities that guide the real estate appraisal process.
  • An appraiser must also conduct him- or herself professionally, ethically and honestly.
  • There are guidelines regarding professionally and ethically correct behavior of appraisers as well that are also covered by this course.
  • The entire appraisal process should be carried out in the best possible way for consumers and licensees as well as the real estate market.

LIENS, TAXES AND FORECLOSURES
Approved Course Number(s): 03-00-102-17477

  • This module discusses liens, taxes and foreclosures.
  • There are many types of liens, as well as several kinds of taxes, that can attach to a parcel of real estate.
  • When borrowers default on a debt, foreclosure is the process by which lienholders collect the unpaid portion of a debt. Because liens represent an interest in real property, it is crucial that real estate licensees develop an in-depth understanding of liens and lien-related issues.
  • Such knowledge also helps licensees to better advise buyers and sellers.

  • The first lesson presents a general overview of liens.
  • It explains the classification of liens and discusses the types of non-tax liens.
  • Lesson two discusses taxes and tax issues, including ad valorem taxes, real estate tax computation, special assessments, real estate transfer taxes, federal income taxes, capital gains taxes and tax shelters for homeowners and investors.
  • It also discusses the priority of liens.
  • Lesson three addresses the methods of foreclosure, redemption, deficiency judgments, tips for homeowners facing foreclosure and fraudulent behaviors related to foreclosure.

CLOSING AND SETTLEMENT COSTS
Approved Course Number(s):03-00-123-23788

Description:

  • Some real estate licensees to believe that their job ends when the purchase and sales contract is signed, because in many states, a licensee has no official duties throughout the closing process, but this is not a prudent stance.
  • Transactions can and do fall apart during the closing stage. Licensees who are familiar with closing procedures and settlement costs can stay involved and use their skills to help ensure that their transactions end well.

  • This course will introduce the student to the closing statement (also called a Settlement statement). This is a document that provides a detailed list of each party?s expenses as well as how much he or she has already contributed to the transaction thus far.
  • This statement also provides an accounting of the final amount that the buyer must bring to the closing. To complete a closing or settlement statement properly, one must know which principal is responsible for each transaction expense.
  • A licensee must also have a clear understanding of credits and debits and should know how to prorate expenses that must be divided between the principals.

  • All transactions that fall under RESPA (the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act) regulation are required to use the HUD-1 Settlement Statement form.
  • This means that all transactions involving a federally related loan used to purchase a one- to four-family home must use the HUD-1 Settlement Statement form; this in turn means that nearly all residential purchase transactions will require this form.
  • Therefore, the HUD-1 Settlement Statement is the most commonly used form for settlement statements, and all licensees who deal in residential property should be familiar with it.
