Questions We Answer In this Show:
Q. What is Forewarn?
A. Forewarned is a proactive solution for realtors created to bring safety and awareness to the real estate industry because of how vulnerable the occupation really is. Forewarn provides instant knowledge to realtors about their unknown contacts before any face-to-face engagement to help reduce the amount of risk they enter into in their daily lives.
Q. What information can I get with Forewarn?
A. All you need to do is type in their phone number or their name, and it brings back up in seconds their financial risks, any means, judgments, foreclosures, bankruptcies, and anything that would be a concern as a realtor for a potential client. Criminal history is self-explanatory; criminal history, any convictions that they have on their record, you will be able to see those.
You're also going to be able to see their assets, such as owned cars, property ownership history or a property history such as rentals or maybe their parent's home, and any address that was associated with them since turning 18; then, of course, homes owned and sometimes you can even see the mortgage amounts depending on if you're in a disclosure or a nondisclosure state.
