eForms

The real estate industry is heavily regulated by both State and Federal (to a lesser degree) guidelines and laws.

To assist with understanding the procedures and processes used by real estate brokers (coursework), I began delving into the many forms, agreements, statements, and contracts used by these professionals. Shown below, a directory listing of some of the forms I have collected to date.

While researching for my (real estate) course, I found other legal forms and agreements I wanted to add to my Microsoft Word template sets. The lower image in the diagram above, shows some of the other forms.

For some reason, I feel smarter having done this research, and wanted to provide a great resource for DIY research and creation of legal forms.

eForms

Should you retain a lawyer if you have questions? Yes. That said, some agreements are pretty straightforward and most services like eForms.com probably use lawyers and/or legal staff to help with the creation of the documents and services they offer.

In my case, I always want a lawyer to fax a copy of an agreement so I can study and research (without interruption) the document before further discussion or signatures- are added.

I have been busy, but feel I am keeping up with my coursework. Mainly, because I stay ahead with the reading.

Other things going on...

  • Filed my taxes.
  • Preparing paperwork for course completion related efforts
  • Renewed several of my domains (yes, tend to do this yearly rather than longer periods of time)
  • Site issues, sports scores (WiredPages), etc.
  • Researching problems with header bidding ads used on several areas of my sites
  • Updating online résumés to reflect current coursework for real estate license
  • Paying business bills... addresses, hosting, etc.

Just really, busy...

Continuing Preparations for Online Real Estate Course...

My real estate course starts next week, and I have been busy with continuing preparation efforts.

Recent preparations:

  • Joined the Microsoft Teams for the class
  • Setup student calendars
  • Digitizing Maryland laws and regulations as related to real estate for easy search.
  • Coming up to speed with a newer version of Microsoft Office (365)
  • Zoom (online) classroom attendance- continuing preparations
  • Research as related to the real estate market, jobs, and online forums
  • Studying

Researching Microsoft offerings as related to real estate.


I have also been trying to plan my days for the next two months, in that I will continue to do most of the shopping. In addition, I have several business related tasks coming up, so I am hoping I can accomplish everything as efficiently as possible.

Put In Some Study Time, Too...

Over the years, I have avoided using facetime and capturing videos of myself. I am not photogenic. This was never really a problem until now.

I worked in a male dominated field and found I liked conservative suits for daily office wear. Though I wear little in the way of jewelry, hair and makeup always important.

Today, when out, I tend to choose the same types of styles. With online video conferencing about to become more important in my life, I am researching options. I am concerned about mistaken identity issues, so want the same look for all public appearances, even video conferencing (sans the mask).

The real problem? I wear black- a lot. I am going through my closets for more colorful options that will project a better contrast for video conferencing, however I am not coming up with a wide selection.

So why all of the previews? Still thinking about all of this. Happy the online course is business related.

Lessons Learned- Day One...

Originally posted: 2/3/21

I have started my online class and it did not go exactly as planned.

Number one, I made a mistake and asked the entire class to join my class events. How did I do this? When I joined the Microsoft Team for the class, I created events in the Team Calendar. I thought it was another student (semi-private) calendar. I was able to cancel all of the events, however it left some in the class confused.

Though no one said anything to me, the number of messages and emails I received before the start of class showed my mistake. "Most could not log in". The class coordinator had to help some of my classmates to the correct event. I was rather embarrassed by the whole thing and could only smile at my mistake.

Two, I love understanding software and all aspects of a new user interface. During the class, I played with every button/icon I could find-- to make sure I understood its function. Never worried everything was being recorded.

For the last two months I have been trying to test lighting, camera resolution, etc. however did not actually create a video. I should have done this.

The two videos the professor uploaded after the class, showed me and a handful of my classmates with our video cameras never turned off. Every move I made was recorded and I have a lot of bad angles.

I think I have figured out options to avoid my first day of class mistakes-- however have no problem if you learn from my mistakes.

I take solace in the fact, I thought the real time video streams of my classmates were a lot nicer than the videos. I was using a high resolution monitor so I thought I could see most of the flaws. I recommend testing if you plan on keeping the video on for most of your class time.

The good news, I feel the study time I put in over the last month- is going to pay off.
