New York Ethical Business Practices and Legal Matters

3.5 Hours
When large sums of money and homes are involved, the likelihood of being involved in litigation increases significantly. As a result, a seemingly small misunderstanding can blossom into a large-scale disagreement, causing hurt feelings and loss of trust in the licensee. Litigation is expensive for all parties concerned and takes an immeasurable toll on people. Nonetheless, the court dockets are overloaded with increasing numbers of lawsuits. Consequently, real estate licensees are required to practice within the guidelines of many federal and state laws. You should do everything possible to protect your clients, customers, and the public and to avoid litigation or censure.

Real estate licensees have a duty to protect the public against fraud, misrepresentation, and unethical practices and should be expected to maintain high standards of professional conduct in their dealings with the public and with other licensees. It is equally important to avoid any activities that give the appearance of impropriety even if they are not specifically illegal. The public has a right to expect proper professional expertise whenever they interact with a real estate licensee.

In this course, we will review some basic concepts related to ethics, including a discussion of fraud. We will examine federal antitrust laws that are intended to protect the public from illegal practices that would hinder their right to choice in the marketplace. Finally, we will have a brief discussion about protecting the privacy and identity of consumers.

Handling Multiple Offers

2 Hours
Multiple offers often happen in a seller’s market when competition for residential property is greatest and there are more buyers than there are properties for sale. However, it can occur in any market and especially for properties within an affordable price range.

The seller’s expectation (multiple offers or not) is to get the best price possible in the situation. Buyers expect to have a chance to get their best offer in front of the seller for consideration. Problems handling multiple offers stem from disregarding their expectations. Therefore, dealing with multiple offers involves using practices and procedures that give the seller a chance to get the best price possible in the situation and the buyers the chance to get their best offer in front of the seller.

It is the presentation and agency duties that create most multiple offer problems. When presenting multiple offers to sellers, real estate licensees must follow their state’s licensing rules and regulations and REALTORS® must follow the NAR Code of Ethics. This course describes how listing agents should present multiple offers to their sellers and how buyer’s agents may help buyers make their offers attractive to sellers.

It is intended to enhance the knowledge and effectiveness of real estate licensees and is approved for 2 hours of continuing education.
