6.0 hours Benefits of a Professional Home Inspection (elective)

Course Syllabus:



6 Elective Hours

After completion of this course, the licensee will know that a professional home inspection reduces the potential for an agents exposure to non-disclosure liability. Many buyers do not know what to look for or how to identify real or potential problems within a property. They need a professional, objective assessment of the condition of a home to accurately establish the market value and identify necessary costs of repair. A seller benefits by avoiding potential non-disclosure liability when the buyer relies on the third party home inspector.
