Course Description

Clear, mutually – acceptable agreements are an essential component of the legal transference of ownership. In the practice of real estate, contracts are the instruments used to describe and record the agreements surrounding the conveyance of property. Some type of contract is nearly always involved, 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.

Before entering into a legally binding agreement, real estate professionals must fully understand the contracts that govern their industry. Failure to understand contracts opens a licensee to various kinds of liability and can seriously damage one’s professional reputation. Therefore, it is vital that real estate professionals learn this material so that they can protect themselves against errors, oversights and misunderstandings.

In this module, the student will learn about the types of general contracts as well as the different kinds of real estate contracts.

  • Real Estate Contracts
  • Contracts, Purchase and Sales Agreements in Texas

    Course Description:

    Property management is a special category of real estate work. The term “property management” generally refers to the group of services which an owner hires a professional property manager or management firm to perform. The quality of management directly affects the profitability of the property being managed. A skilled property manager thus protects the owner’s capital investment in real estate and makes sure that the property generates profit. In many cases, property managers must be licensed real estate brokers.
