9 Hour Course
Course ID: 1703
Approved By: Oregon Real Estate Agency
AYPO’s Real Estate Essentials package will meet 9 of the 30 hours of continuing education required by the state of Oregon for licensees to maintain an active real estate license.
This course is a great way to refresh yourself on some of the most pivotal skills and standards a licensee needs to have. We’ll start by reviewing the NAR Code of Ethics, which establishes industry standards for ethical behavior among real estate licensees.
We’ll also review some of the basic math calculations that licensees should be comfortable with performing. These include calculations for valuation, appreciation, depreciation, loan items, and broker commissions.
After that, the course will give you a brief review of real estate contract law. We’ll look at the requirements for a valid contract, as well as the clauses you’ll encounter in them, and what happens when a contract is breached. Then we’ll review listing, buyer-broker, and tenant representation agreements.
In our short section on other real estate activities, we’ll look at the responsibilities of property management; the requirement to disclose material facts in a transaction; and the process of counseling investors who wish to invest their money in real estate.
After that, we’ll discuss the role of a licensee who serves in a neutral escrow or co-op transaction. We’ll end the course by reviewing how to create an effective and accurate comparative market analysis for a property, and completing a practice CMA.
This course also contains periodic quiz questions to ensure student understanding of the material presented.
