16 Oct 13

Professionals, take note. Your learning journey shouldn't end the day you are issued a certificate or statement. It's important to continue training throughout your real estate career, so you can continue to offer clients and customers service that has an edge over the competition.

Some organisations, such as the Real Estate Institute of South Australia (REISA), offer professional development courses to ensure you're up to date in all areas of real estate law. If you're looking to brush up on your skills, look no further than the range of compliance courses available through REISA.

The Form 1 Refresher course will ensure your documentation is correct, ensuring stress-free sales and settlements. The workshop will cover common mistakes made when filling out Form 1, and best practice tips. It also touches on dealing with asbestos and the Environment Protection Agency, along with complications with the Emergency Services Levy.

The Risk Management Legislation Refresher is a real must-attend for all office managers and Resident Letting Agents. The course looks at problems in an agency's procedures that can cause the loss of professional fees or leave the agency open to fines. It also explores hidden risks that may expose you to litigation, as well as ways to protect your fees and expenses.

All real estate salespeople should attend the Residential Advertising Price Compliance course, which provides an overview of pricing methods and tips on how to establish the Prescribed Minimum Advertising Price. It explores how to handle single and multiple offers, and ways to offer rejections and price adjustments.

The Sales Agency Agreement and Contract Documentation Refresher provides an overview on document preparation and mistakes to avoid. Purchasers can often look for document errors in order to void a contract, so it's vital that you have superb attention to detail when filling in forms.
