The legalization of cannabis opens up new risks for homeowners and new opportunities for REALTORS® to add value as trusted advisors as consumers make the biggest financial decision of their lives. That’s why BCREA has launched a series of videos called Conversations on Cannabis.
Click here to view the second episode. It features Victoria REALTOR® and CFAX radio host Tony Joe interviewing housing lawyer Grant Haddock on cannabis as it relates to strata properties, the risks of growing cannabis inside a strata unit and how to identify whether the strata bylaws align with your client’s purchasing needs.
The aim of the series is to create an accessible tool that builds REALTORS®’reputations as partners to consumers when it comes to understanding and navigating risks around real estate transactions. This is a different approach with different targeted outcomes than the Real Estate Council of BC’s announced Professional Matters webinars for licensees on cannabis.
In early spring, BCREA will be following up with the final video with other industry experts, as well as social media campaigns around all the videos targeting consumers, REALTORS® and other real estate professionals. Please feel free to take advantage of this resource, whether by sharing the link with your network on Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn or on your professional website.
