For Delaware CE, this course falls under 13.1.1.2 Three (3) hours in practices in real estate (Module 6).

Tactics that work with motivated, excited sellers don't always translate well when working with short sale sellers and short sale buyers. Toss lender approvals, junior lien holders, and inflexible timelines into the mix, and you end up with a whole new ball game.

In a short sale transaction, the motivation for each party is different than the standard transaction, and as the professional in the scene, you need to adjust accordingly. This course speaks to your interaction with short sale sellers, and how you can help them through a tough process while diligently advocating on their behalf. We cover how to figure out an appropriate listing price, negotiate with the lender's representative, sort through debt settlement terminology, and carry the deal through to closing. We also look at the process from a buyer's agent perspective. Additional cautions, considerations, and fraud prevention tactics are required when advocating on behalf of these deal-seeking buyers.

For Delaware CE, this course falls under 13.1.1.2 Three (3) hours in legislative issues (Module 5).

Federal and state legislation and regulatory decisions have a significant effect on the real estate industry and your practice as a real estate professional. To protect yourself as well as your clients, you must possess a solid understanding of the laws and regulations connected to real estate. Consider, for example, the Real Estate Settlement Procedures Act (RESPA). Under this federal law, real estate licensees are prohibited from receiving a "thing of value" for referring business to a settlement service provider. If you were unaware of the law and its requirements, you could get into hot water for accepting a gift from a mortgage broker for a referral.

Delaware Legislative Issues is divided into two units. In Unit 1, we focus on federal legislation. We then turn our attention to Delaware laws in Unit 2. From start to finish, we use activities to emphasize key points and ensure your understanding of the material.

To maintain their license, Delaware real estate professionals must complete 21 hours of continuing education, composed of seven core modules. This course fulfills the state's Legislative Issues (Module 5) requirement.

Course highlights include:
  • A review of key federal laws, such as the Truth in Lending Act, Residential Lead-Based Paint Hazard Reduction Act, and Mortgage Reform and Anti-Predatory Lending Act.

For Delaware CE, this course falls under 13.1.1.2 Three (3) hours in office management (Module 4).

In residential real estate transactions, you are responsible for assisting clients in one of the largest purchases of their lives. Clients literally risk hundreds of thousands of dollars, or more, and require your expertise to hold it all together. In addition, people invest not just their money in a real estate purchase, they invest their emotions and their family's well-being. When things go wrong, they look to you for answers. In commercial real estate transactions, the stakes are even higher, with millions of dollars at stake.

In Delaware Office Management, we examine office management through the prism of risk management. Regardless of how long you've been in business, risk is something you're going to encounter again and again. Keep in mind that, over time, you will see risks change with the advent of new laws and the shifting of consumer needs, market conditions, and business requirements. Risk management will continue to be an important part of your real estate business.

To maintain their license, Delaware real estate professionals must complete 21 hours of continuing education, composed of seven core modules. This course fulfills the state's Office Management (Module 4) requirement.

For Delaware CE, this course falls under 13.1.1.7 Three (3) hours in elective courses (Module 7).

Practicing real estate during a hot market is not business as usual. Ethical, legal and practical issues occur when buyers scramble to “get theirs” while listing agents guard the gate—sometimes using questionable means.

No matter the market dynamics, a licensee’s fiduciary duties do not change. A buyer’s agent still has the duty to put client needs first, and help buyers obtain properties meeting their needs for the lowest price possible. Listing agents also must put the seller’s interest first, and try to secure for them the best price and most favorable terms.

This course shows licensees how to navigate hot market dynamics ethically and legally, whether representing buyers or sellers.

Course highlights include:
  • An overview of hot market dynamics, including low inventory, cash buyers, multiple offers, appraisal and lending issues
  • How to stay ethical, legal and avoid violating MLS rules when taking a pocket listing
  • A discussion of private listing groups and their potential risks for fair housing and anti-trust violations
  • Buyer strategies for writing winning offers—and guerilla tactics to avoid
  • Escalator clauses, what they are and how to respond to them
  • Ways to assist sellers in evaluating offers based not only on price and terms but also on buyer strength
  • Strategies for responding to multiple offers
  • Options for buyers and sellers when properties do not appraise
