So if you’re heading to Orlando in November, why not raise your designation awareness by taking one of several pre-conference courses being offered on site Nov. 7–8? For example, you can work toward NAR’s new Broker Price Opinion Resource certification by taking the course “BPOs: The Agent’s Role in the Valuation Process,” which can also be applied toward the Accredited Buyer’s Representative designation. Eligible BPOR-certified members can be included on a preferred panel to receive BPO orders from partnered BPO management companies. To qualify for the preferred list, applicants must be licensed for at least 2.5 years and carry an errors and omissions policy with $250,000 minimum coverage per incident and $500,000 aggregate maximum.
