    Product Description

    The increasing complexity of commercial real estate sales transactions, the proliferation of national buyers and financing sources, and the changing roles of title insurance companies and lenders' counsel in the closing process have made it more important than ever to have a complete understanding of the sales process. This program covers the complete life cycle of a sale transaction, from entering into the agreements with the listing brokers and soliciting and negotiating the initial offers through the final recording and disbursement of funds.
