Loan Modifications/Forebearances & the Commercial Sale Agreement @ Zoom Online Class
Apr 4 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

Class is FREE and earns 2 hours towards your license renewal.

To start out class, Erik Arevalo, Loan Workouts Specialist with First Tech Credit Union and an Oregon First, Realtors® agent will talk about what he’s seeing in the loan industry right now. This is not about people applying for loans—he does loan modifications and forbearances. They’re very busy right now, as you can imagine. I thought everyone could benefit from hearing what he’s experiencing and being able to ask questions of him.

Once everyone’s questions are answered, we’ll start going over the Commercial Sale Agreement. We’ve been talking a lot about working with investors lately, going over how to figure rates of return on investment properties and tenant rights, so a review of the Commercial Sale Agreement is in order. We’ll discuss only those parts that differ from the Residential Sale Agreement. If we have time, we’ll also look over the Investment Addendum that goes with it. Taught by Oregon First’s President, Mickey J. Lindsay.

Case-Shiller Report; Legal Hotline Q&A
Aug 7 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Earn an hour toward your license renewal for free with Oregon First’s president, Mickey Lindsay.

Today, we’ll discuss the most recent Case-Shiller numbers and more generally what the Case-Shiller Index is.

Then we’ll take a look at how the OAR Legal Hotline has answered some of the same sorts of questions as we’ve been answering in our You Be The Principal Broker series. This should be interesting since there are always differences of opinion or experience that lead to slightly different answers or different emphases.

Then, if there’s time, we’ll look at PMAR’s most recent version of Best Practices.

Class is free and earns one hour toward your license renewal. A Zoom link will be sent in an email to all Oregon First, Realtors®, Washington First Properties, and Tiffany Real Property agents.
