Putting Clients First: Cooperation, Compensation and Procuring Cause
Cooperation among competing professionals is unique to the real estate community. Licensees compete for the privilege of representing buyers, sellers, landlords or tenants in a real estate transaction. Once that relationship is established, licensees cooperate to match their respective clients with each other to complete the transfer of real estate between consumers.
In the REALTOR® community, real estate licensees pledge – through the Code of Ethics – to take the cooperation concept to a higher level. For REALTORS® it’s about much more than just bringing consumers together to complete a transaction. In this course we will address the ethical and legal issues as well as best practices in:
- Unauthorized or unsupervised access
- Coming soon and off-MLS listings
- Appropriate use of MLS statuses
- Compensation issues such as: gross vs net; when an offer of compensation may or may not be changed; and procuring cause
