A good risk awareness policy is seller disclosure form review. The real estate professionals should read the seller's disclosure form looking for any discrepancies between the seller's representations and what the broker knows or has seen. Buyer's and seller's agents should double check any blank spaces on the form that may prompt more questions, making sure that the disclosures are complete and adequate.
What are real estate professionals' obligations under the law? Real estate professionals may have the obligation to make a reasonable inspection, but some states are not nearly as strict as that, but you need to know what your state law is as it relates to seller's disclosures and your obligations to inspect.
Real estate professionals need to keep their eyes and ears open. As a real estate professional with specific knowledge and expertise, an agent needs to pay attention to potential red flags, ensure that the resulting questions are answered, and inform her client of these concerns.
This course covers the topic of risk management. The goal of this course is to provide you with a good idea of where your risk lies so that you can adjust your practice accordingly.
