Course Category: General Real Estate

Agreement is an essential component in the legal transference of ownership. In real estate, contracts are the instruments by which agreements are reached for the conveyance of property. Whether a salesperson is promising to sell a property within a specified period of time, a prospective buyer is placing an offer on a house or a seller is considering an offer on property, some type of contract is involved.
In this Contracts course, the student learns about the types of general contracts as well as the different kinds of real estate contracts. The module begins by providing the student with an overview of the various types of contracts: bilateral, unilateral, implied, express, executed, executory, valid, void, voidable and unenforceable. Once the student is introduced to the different types of contracts, he or she learns what makes a contract legally enforceable, this being the five components that make a contract valid: mutual assent, legally competent parties, consideration, lawful objective and adherence to a statute of frauds.
This course will introduce the student to two of the three factors that create a contract: offers and acceptances. When there is an offer and acceptance, the parties can either perform their respective parts of the contract or breach the contract by not fulfilling their obligations. Then we will discuss the third component of a legally binding and enforceable contract-performance. There are four basic types of contracts in real estate: sales contracts, option agreements, contract for deeds and leases; these types of contracts being those that deal in the governance of the real estate industry which, as a real estate professional, the student should be familiar with.

Upon completion of this module, the student will be able to:

  • Name and explain the various components of a valid contract.
  • Identify the differences between a unilateral and bilateral contract.
  • Describe the various types of contracts.
  • Recognize the difference between a forbearance and performance agreement.

    Course 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. The objective of this course is to familiarize the student with the principles, theories, duties and activities that pertain to real estate appraisal and valuation. Developing an opinion of value is what the real estate appraiser does, but, as we’ve alluded to, this is far from an effortless process. Understanding the obligation of the real estate industry to promote professionalism and ethical business practices is a beginning to being able to carry out this process such that it is beneficial to licensees, consumers and the market in which they do business. As well as touching upon general standards by which the value of property should be established, this course is broken down into separate lessons which cover.

    • Role of a Real Estate Appraiser.
    • Federal Legislation and National Agencies Governing the Industry.
    • An Overview of Basic Value Principles.
    • Dynamics of the Real Estate Market.
    • Three Approaches to Appraisal.
    • Appraisal Process.
    • Real Estate Appraisal Practice Exercises

    Completing this course will leave the student with a good understanding of fundamental principles of appraisal, methods of real estate valuation, the various kinds of appraisal licensure and certification, the diverse types of appraisal, and what license or certificate is appropriate for given ones. In addition, the course examines the ways in which appraisal can affect both the larger economy and the availability of housing. The course concludes with real – world practice lessons in which students apply their new knowledge to examples and case studies.
