If you’re an experienced REALTOR® who wants to sharpen your knowledge…or a new agent who wants to learn how the Residential Resale Real Estate Purchase Contract interacts with lenders and title companies to close a transaction…then you should attend the 2017 Industry Partners Conference.

As a REALTOR®, lender, or escrow officer, see if you can answer the following questions:

  • What are the potential issues, if a Contract has an escalation clause?
  • How does the Contract address solar liens? Is the HOA disclosure fee negotiable?
  • If a buyer disapproves of something on the Commitment for Title Insurance, can they automatically cancel or does the seller have an opportunity to correct?
  • The buyer in the Finance section of the Contract promised they would do one of three actions, three days before the close of escrow. Can you name them?

Join us and learn the answers to these questions and many more involving the Contract and closings. This is an interactive event with REALTORS®, lenders and escrow officers discussing scenarios, collaborating and participating in Q&A sessions.

This year’s conference is on Thursday, Sept. 21 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Phoenix-Scottsdale. The $85 registration fee includes lunch and six C/E credits (3 Contract Law, 3 Disclosure).

What makes this educational event unique is the partnership between the Arizona REALTORS®, Arizona Mortgage Lenders Association and Arizona State Escrow Association. These three “partners” spend months reviewing current issues about the closing process and the Contract. Hope to see you there!
