Niche Marketing: Narrow Your Focus - 3.00 Hrs (#C8725)
Many real estate agents operate in a certain specialty or "niche," and perhaps with a little thought, many more would take the time to discover the benefits of carving out a niche for themselves. When agents market themselves as experts in a certain aspects of the industry, it not only helps the agent, but the client/customer as well. Customers need to know who the most knowledgeable, experienced professional in the area is. If there is an agent who specializes in the topic the customer needs assistance with, it is good for the industry if that customer is made aware of that agent. Becoming the go-to person in a particular area of real estate can set you apart from your colleagues and be a very lucrative strategy. Your instructor will help you identify a niche that you may want to specialize in and coach you on how to market yourself as an expert in that niche.

Listing Agreements - 3.00 Hrs (#C7315)
The listing agreement and the attached addenda is the contract between the brokerage and the seller. There are many important terms and conditions stated within this contract such as the commission rate, the length or duration of the listing, the consequences of a breach by the seller, the terms under which dual agency is handled, seller’s disclosures, cancellation of a listing, ownership of a listing, and other terms which are of extreme importance. The listing agreement is the first contract in what can be a long process to the sale and closing of a property. We will explore the many intricacies of this agreement as well as some case studies to help you better understand listing agreements as they are used throughout your real estate career. It is important to note here that you will want to make sure that you are using the latest version of the forms to comply with the new law. Again, the important points to remember are: Use the new version of the form and be sure to discard all of the old hardcopy versions of the form that you or your brokerage may have. Familiarize yourself with all new laws, and use the available resources listed to get further information. In addition to the end-of-chapter quizzes and final exam, this course contains mini-quizzes that will test the knowledge of the material throughout each chapter. The mini-quizzes will help prepare you for not only the end-of-chapter quiz, but also for the cumulative final exam at the end of the course.
