This course focuses on the laws and issues related to condominiums, along with a summary of new real estate laws enacted in Hawaii.

Condominium development and conversions are a strong sector of Hawaii’s real estate industry. However, there is often a degree of confusion—among licensees as well as clients—as to what constitutes a “condominium.” This course will help eliminate any lingering confusion by walking through the appropriate statutes and requirements related to condominiums.

In addition, legislative updates have been included. Developed within days of many of these bills becoming law, this course provides licensees with an overview of those changes most pertinent to the Hawaii real estate industry. Bills that will interest most licensees are featured, covering a range of topics including transient accommodations tax, historic property reviews, domestic violence, medical marijuana, residential landlord-tenant close, and multiple others.

This 4-hour course is Part A of the Hawaii Real Estate Commission’s 8-hour mandatory core course for 2015 and 2016.

Course highlights include:
  • Creation of a condominium, including legal requirements and documentation.
  • Structure and use of condominium, including different types.
  • Converting structures to condominium status.
  • The difference between common element and limited common element expenses.
  • Developer's public report, the requirements for initial sales, and sales to owner-occupants.
  • Developer's public report v. 508D.
  • Seller's real property disclosure statement and documentation for re-sales.
  • 5 House and 6 Senate bills relating to the real estate industry.
  • Activities and examples to seal in the new information and frame it in everyday context.

In this course, you will have the opportunity to consider condominiums from a governing standpoint. Many laypersons who have been elected to Boards and charged with governing condominium associations tend to have very little experience with fiduciary matters and do not understand their fiduciary duty to the homeowners. This lack of experience and understanding can create governance problems.

This course reviews what constitutes the “association” what its responsibilities are. In addition, we will look at how Hawaii law and legal documents related to the project give the association certain rights over individual owners but also impose certain obligations on the association to act in the best interest of its unit owners.

This 4-hour course is Part B of the Hawaii Real Estate Commission’s 8-hour mandatory core course for 2015 and 2016.

Course highlights include:
  • Creation of a condominium’s governing structure
  • Authority and responsibility of the association and its Board of Directors
  • The types of meetings related to condominium governance
  • Requirements related to the association’s records, and the procedures to access these records
  • Budgets and reserves and how assessments are authorized and calculated
  • Consequences when an assessment is not paid, and the right of the association to collect
  • Mediation, arbitration, and litigation for dispute resolution
  • Regulations related to pets, smoking, parking stalls, unit modifications
  • A look at issues related to aging in place in a condominium setting
  • New legislation effecting the real estate industry
  • Activities and examples to seal in the new information and frame it in everyday context.

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.

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
