Introduction to Buyers Agency (IBA NV-5)

B. REAA Non-Verified → 5 Hour Non-Verified


An Introduction To Buyer Agency
In The New Zealand Real Estate Market

This first-of-a-kind introductory course, considers Buyer Agency, as it is practiced in the United States, Australia, Canada and elsewhere; the impact of the 2008 REAA Act on Buyer Agency in New Zealand; the ethical issues that are the basis for Buyer Agency and how to possibly make a living, by acting as a Buyer’s Agent.

As this is a brand new area of practice in New Zealand, there is more to be determined than is currently known, so this course will also serve as a “sounding board” for an open online discussion of the topic.

There are short “self assessments” at the end of several chapters. These assessments are optional, but we recommend you take them to help solidify what you have just learned.
The scores from these assessments are not sent to REAA, nor used to evaluate your knowledge…. they are just there to help you make best use of the materials.

This course is video enhanced!
