Colorado Listing Contracts

Real Estate Continuing Education Course


The purpose of this course is to keep real estate professionals up to date with current contracts, disclosures, and forms. The goal of this Colorado Listing Contracts course is to give the student a working in-depth knowledge of the Colorado Real Estate Commission-approved contracts and those that need to be prepared by a licensed real estate attorney associated with the listing of real property.

These contract forms will affect a sale or a lease of property under the freehold and leasehold estates. As a real estate professional, you should understand that it is your responsibility to adhere to the laws and regulations pertaining to all aspects of this course and the materials presented within. You will also come to find that, at times, the policies of your brokerage firm will control. Listing brokers will need to adhere to the real estate laws of contracts and agencies, the Commission rules, and firm policies.

The objective of this course is to educate the licensee on how to win listings and the knowledge it will take to converse with potential principals in either a sale or a lease transaction. However, an important aspect of any listing presentation is to know when to thank the potential client for the opportunity and walk away.

All contracts used in this course are the current Colorado Real Estate Commission-approved contracts. The contracts and addenda will prepare the listing broker for conversations that could surface during a listing presentation.
