    DESCRIPTION

    Communicating the Home Inspection -
    A home inspection report is no good if it doesn’t communicate to the client what the inspector intends. To do this, it has to be unambiguous, easily understandable, and clearly convey the urgency of an issue. I will address:
    • How something can be unambiguous and still be hard to understand
    • How something can be easily understandable but ambiguous
    • How overly complex or ambiguous language can weaken an inspection report
    • How not being specific enough with recommendations in a report downplays urgency of serious issues and magnifies minor ones
    • The importance of context, framing, and communicating scope
    • The paradox that despite the above, the standards “bake in” some ambiguity - does this serve the client?
    My hope is that you come away from the course with a better tools to help your client understand their report.

    Going through the process of taking borrowers that either qualify for very small loan amounts or don’t qualify for a loan at all, and giving them the power to buy the house that they want. This comes from a full understanding of non-conventional loan programs, specific underwriting guidelines, credit reporting, and how to creatively restructure a borrower’s financial situation. We’ll use real world examples from personal experiences, and follow the step-by-step process on how a person can go from being denied by multiple lenders, to finding themselves in the house of their dreams a few weeks later.

    DESCRIPTION

    In this session, agents will learn about the common errors and misconceptions about working with Loan Officers. Why do deals fall apart? What is your lender not telling you out of fear of losing the next deal? Agents will learn the importance of working as a team and how it creates a better customer experience. Learn the best new technology and agent lender co-marketing strategies. Learn how to check a loan officer’s licenses and reviews before you decide to refer them business. Learn the best way to communicate with a loan officer. Set your expectations up front so you are not disappointed later. Everyone has a role in a transaction. Lenders do not want to overstep the Agent’s role, so we work as a team to supplement each other for the client to understand our “why” throughout the transaction. Nobody wants to talk about is so we are going to hit the topic head on for both sides of the transaction. Agents and Lenders don’t always fully disclose the issues that arise throughout a transaction. We will help you remove the fear, understand the process, and work towards achieving the goal of closing the transaction as a team.

    DESCRIPTION

    In this class, agents will learn the difference between the two, how they affect a buyer’s negotiating power, and how they compete against other offers when presented to sellers. We will go through the process of a Pre-Approval, so agents are educated on the importance (and ease!) of having their buyers obtain pre-approvals through our loan officers. Learn the basics of how loan officers evaluate customers. Have they pulled credit? Have they reviewed income documents? The loan officer is not a underwriter, no matter how much they think they are. Sometimes the Pre-Approval is actually a Pre-Qualification in disguise. Protect your listings and protect your clients from misleading information. Have you ever heard of DU or LP? They are the true pre-approval tests. If the deal is really “pre-approved” you should review these transactional underwriting findings with your loan officer. Learn how to make a properly structured pre-approval look just as good as a cash offer. If the deal truly was pre-approved, it’s almost as good as CLOSED! The process becomes much smoother and you will find yourself sitting at the closing table sooner than ever.
