An Analysis of the Real Estate Occupation.
Harestad, Clifford E.; And Others
The general purpose of the occupational analysis is to provide workable, basic information dealing with the many and varied duties performed in the real estate occupation. It represents an accounting of what must be done, but not how the entire cycle of a residential sale is completed through the services of a real estate person and the salesperson. The document opens with a brief introduction followed by a job description. The bulk of the document is presented in table form. Twelve duties are broken down into a number of tasks and for each task a table is presented, showing: tools, equipment, materials, objects acted upon; performance knowledge (related also to decisions, cues and errors); safety--hazard; science; math--number systems; and communications. The duties include: introducing self to potential users; obtaining current knowledge of property values and availability; prospecting for listings and sales; listing, promoting, and showing property; obtaining and qualifying buyers; obtaining and presenting offers to purchase; closing of sale; and post-servicing of both seller and buyer. Appended are lists of math number systems to be used by a real estate agent, and a glossary of real estate terms. (BP)
