Virginia Post-Licensing: Risk Management
Even for newly licensed salespersons, the business of real estate has serious risks. In residential real estate transactions, you are responsible for assisting clients in one of the largest purchases of their lives. Clients risk hundreds of thousands of dollars or more. With so much on the line, they rely on your expertise to help them make well-informed decisions. In addition, people invest not just their money in a real estate purchase; they invest their emotions and their family's well-being in these transactions. When things go wrong, they look to their real estate representative as the cause first.
The scope of risk can cover a variety of areas. Within Virginia Post-Licensing: Risk Management, we examine the risks involved in property disclosures, licensing, agency, contracts, antitrust, and fair housing. In addition, we look at how to manage these risks in comparison to the potential rewards you can achieve.
