Do You Know The Options for Deferring Capital Gains Taxes?

Section 1031 Like-Kind Exchanges are a hot topic right now as discussions of Tax Reform linger in D.C. However, a less well known tax tool exists that can often be used in lieu of a 1031. In this webinar, attendees will learn how:

  • this alternative, with a 20-year track record of deferring taxes, can help RLI members close more real estate deals
  • it can help agents obtain more listings and new clients by deferring taxes since other brokers may not know how to take advantage of this powerful tax tool
  • to recognize opportunities to defer taxes when a 1031 isn’t appropriate
  • to defer taxes when your seller wants to sell and retire but still defer taxes
  • to defer taxes regardless of the type of property

This webinar is appropriate for agents and their clients who are concerned about selling because of taxes. This webinar is also appropriate for CPAs, attorneys, qualified intermediaries and farm credit professionals, and  rural banks that take an active role in helping people buy and sell real estate.

Need-To-Knows: Title Reports & Boundary Surveys

When a Land Title Survey is ordered, a collaborative effort is set in motion typically involving a surveyor, a title company, a seller, a buyer, a lender and the respective attorneys. Surveyors normally play an integral role in that process and it is helpful – if not necessary – for everyone involved to understand what that role is, what it is not, and what support surveyors can provide to assist in the realization of a successful transaction. In this webinar, we will examine the surveyor’s role in the commercial transaction, which primarily revolves around the ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey, the title commitment, and the dynamic between the parties to the conveyance.

Participants of this webinar will be able to:

  • Identify the primary elements of an ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey and explain how each supports the party’s needs in a transaction.
  • Outline the relationship of the ALTA/NSPS Land Title Survey and the title commitment from the surveyor’s perspective.
  • Gain the knowledge needed to explain what a surveyors’ certification can say, what it cannot say, and why.

Elevate Your Elevator Pitch

We’ve all been there, and as real estate professionals, most of us realize the importance of making a better than good first impression.

  • Ever meet someone who always knows the right thing to say?
  • Ever talk to someone you felt like you’ve known forever even though you just met?
  • How many times have you’ve attended a networking event, conference, or listing appointment, and felt that wide-eyed feeling of panic that takes over when somebody shakes your hand and says, “So, tell me a little about yourself!”?

Learn to be that confident, well-spoken, genuine, and prepared person–yes, its a skill! Learn to summarize yourself in a way that concisely portrays your professionalism, expertise, and passion. As a real estate sales professional, its essential to be proactive and prepared by developing and practicing an “elevator pitch” response.

Join Priestner as she dissects the components of the perfect elevator pitch, and helps you create one of your own. She will share tricks to help you feel more comfortable and approachable at networking events as well as explain the immediate steps you should take following the meeting to make that referral or land the deal.
