3.0 Designated Subject Matter R

A breach of contract is when one or both of the parties fail to perform according to the terms and conditions of the contract. If there has been a material breach, then the other party may be able to take court action. There are four legal remedies for a breach of contract that include specific performance, liquidated damages, compensatory damages, and rescission.

Specific performance is a legal action where the court orders the party who breached the contract to perform according to the contract. Specific performance, as a remedy, may not always be possible.

Liquidated damages occur when both parties to a contract agree in advance to a dollar amount that will compensate the other party in the event of a breach. This amount must be outlined in writing. It makes it easier for the non-breaching party to recover these damages since they were agreed to in writing.

Compensatory damages are the most common remedy for a breach of contract, given that there was not a liquidated damages clause. This compensates the other party for the financial loss they incurred because of a breach of contract.

Rescission takes place when a contract has been canceled, and each party is returned to their original position. A rescission could result from the agreement of the parties or by court order.

Upon completion of this course, the real estate professional will have a better understanding of the consequences of a breach should one of the parties’ default on the contract. It is important to remember that some contracts specify the consequences of a breach when the contract is originally formed.

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

Real estate licensees who represent commercial clients, whether as buyers or sellers of commercial properties, must understand the process of valuing commercial properties. To best serve their commercial real estate clients, they need a solid understanding of how commercial properties are valued, how appraisers work, and how that important final number is determined.

Many of the tools and methodologies used by commercial appraisers can also be used by licensees to help their clients determine value when buying, selling or comparing commercial real estate. While a valuation prepared by a real estate licensee will never take the place of a formal appraisal, it is important for licensees to understand the definitions of value used by appraisers, the methodologies used, the three approaches to value, and how value of commercial properties is determined. It is also important for licensees to be able to read and extract information from a professional appraisal report.

Highlights of this course include:
  • Definitions of commonly used commercial appraisal terms
  • An in-depth look at the process of data collection, analysis and three approaches to value (cost, income and sales comparison) for commercial property valuation
  • Faculty expert, Bill James, a 40-year veteran of commercial appraisal, takes students step-by-step through a real-life appraisal report, which includes the process of data collection, approaches to value, analysis and value determination

Commercial real estate investors have two goals: generate cash flow and produce higher returns. However, unlike other investment types, investing in commercial property is not simply a matter of buying at one price and selling for more. Commercial real estate must be considered in terms of the risks and rewards of the type of commercial property, income during the investment period, the investor’s own situation, and how value and return are impacted by the economic, market, tax, and legal conditions (particularly zoning) for the market niche.

This course presents an overview of the factors impacting value and investment potential of commercial properties, gives licensees a solid understanding of the financial aspects of commercial real estate investment, and better prepares them to provide professional guidance to their commercial real estate clients when evaluating investment properties for purchase or sale.

Highlights of this course include:
  • The six main categories of commercial properties, and their specific challenges and opportunities for investors.
  • A definition of transit-oriented communities, and why they are a growing type of mixed-use development.
  • How zoning, building codes, title issues and the Americans with Disabilities Act impact commercial property development and investment potential.

Landlord representatives usually referred to as “leasing agents” or “leasing brokers,” serve a key role in commercial real estate: getting tenants for their clients’ buildings. Accomplishing that goal is a lengthy, multi-step process that includes positioning the product in the marketplace, identifying suitable prospects, creating and executing marketing plans, negotiating the deal, and managing all of the steps associated with the leasing process. Landlord reps must have their fingers on the pulse of their market. A thorough knowledge of tenant demographics, occupancy rates, leasing rates, and industry trends is essential. Beyond technical expertise, however, they must also be adept at relationship building, and must know how to coalesce the varying needs of tenants, landlords and leasing brokers into workable, win-win-win deals.

This course provides an overview of commercial leasing, the players involved in commercial leasing, their roles and goals.

Highlights of this course include:
  • An analysis of the commercial real estate market as it stands today
  • A description of the in-house and external landlord reps, and why landlords choose to work with landlord reps
  • A survey of a panel of six landlord representatives who have a combined total of nearly 200 years of experience in commercial real estate
  • A look at additional training, accreditation and associations for commercial real estate professionals
  • A comparison of different types of commercial leases
  • An overview of the tenant build-out process
  • A timeline with activities for landlord reps from hire to full execution of a commercial leasing listing contract
