Course 6 - Wisconsin Real Estate Transactions


Have you ever worked with a trustee? With someone holding power of attorney? With an out-of-state licensee? This course explores the issues licensees must be familiar with when working with representatives, including what it means to hold a power of attorney, and the ins and outs of working with trusts, estates, and business entities. It then examines option contracts and rights of first refusal and how these can help potential buyers secure a future interest in real property. The course concludes with a discussion of the rules that Wisconsin licensees must follow when working with out-of-state licensees including those governing referral fees, referral agreements, and cooperative agreements.
