This program covers the nuts and bolts of buying and selling residential property as well as provides an introduction to some important real estate topics often encountered in practice.

Know how to best advise and represent a client whether they are a buyer or seller, get some tips on how to work well with other professionals involved in a real estate deal, and some ideas on what to do when your client comes to you after they have signed a contract. Learn from experienced attorneys about the common pitfalls and local quirks that can derail a deal and how to handle surprises at closing. Most importantly, learn enough to recognize what you don’t know and how to find the information your client needs to know before closing a residential deal.
