Why would one professional in the Real Estate Industry step over the line into another’s profession? Not only is it wrong and unethical, but more often than not will kill a deal. Stepping over that fine line will not only create a bad reputation but they will risk losing their license and risk facing court action.
STAY IN YOUR OWN AREA OF EXPERTISE. Not only is it the right way of doing business, IT’S THE RIGHT THING TO DO!!!
If you are not a licensed real estate agent, then don’t pretend you are.
If you are not an attorney, you cannot give legal advice.
If you are not a licensed contractor, you cannot tell a buyer that the home is not structurally sound.
If you are not a licensed Termite Inspector, you cannot say there are active termites.
If you are a doctor, you cannot presume you are a real estate agent.
If you are not a loan officer, don’t give advice on what type of loan program they should have.
Put it this way, you can do whatever your heart desires, although be prepared to face the consequences should you step over that fine line. YOU SURELY MUST GET MY DRIFT.
Step over that fine line…
And risk losing your name, your reputation…
And whatever license you do have.
