This class will give students the opportunity to learn from the experience of other top producing real estate agents about how to manage the inspection and due diligence process. In our inspection practice, we’ve noticed the real estate agents with the most experience have the fewest clients requesting inspections on a second house during the same transaction period. Everyone wants a happy client when the transaction is complete. Those who take this class will learn how to set the stage so the consumer is confident in their decision and has access to the best information possible. We will go through the steps from buyer consultation through post-closing using data from interviews with several top producers from the area board of Realtors and inspectors to help students craft their own best practices for each stage and enable their clients to follow a plan to buy the right house.
