Florida Realtor – Ethics and Reputation

Florida Realtor – Ethics and Reputation

 

Are you a Florida Realtor? With the economy in the state of Florida right now, it’s not surprising that many Realtors are having a tough time finding clients and sales. In fact, many of them are out of business due to less than spectacular real estate deals and properties that are being sold. If you’re one of those Florida Realtors who are having this issue, it’s important that you know a few things about how long it takes to sell a house in Florida.

It actually takes about seven years from the first contact, when you first contact the buyer and initially set up the meeting, until you have a confirmed deal and sign a contract as a real estate agent in Florida. But that’s not the end of the road for any realtor in Florida. It really depends on what you are looking for and how quickly you want the deal closed. The good news is that if you find a buyer, close the deal within two months, the Florida Real Estate Commission (RFCC) will not fine you. However, if you do not close the deal within two months, you could be hit with a cease and desist order from the RFCC, which means that the sale of your property could be indefinitely postponed.

As a Florida Realtor, it is incumbent upon all of us to practice ethical standards of conduct. That means that when you are representing someone else and you find a buyer for their house, you have to be honest with the buyer that you represent. And you need to keep in mind that the Florida Real Estate Commission (RFCC) is your regulator. So, it is imperative that you have the highest level of integrity and professionalism, along with a willingness to serve the people of Florida in an honest and professional manner.
