  • Real Estate Safety: Protect Yourself and Your Clients

    Real estate is generally a safe profession, but there are dangers that agents are exposed to on occasion. While the number of work related deaths and injuries are relatively low, they are not nonexistent. Female real estate agents are more likely to become victims than men; however, men are not immune to attack.

    Think about it: real estate licensees often meet complete strangers by themselves, in vacant properties, at odd hours, with little or no background information on the potential client(s). When you think about it this way, the job can sound dangerous. There are some basic safety protocols real estate professionals can employ in the field. Though your brokerage may have a set of security procedures in place, many brokerages rely on the individual agent to establish their own safety measures.

  • The Basics of Land Management

    Hide Details

    This course is iPad compatible. Land is a finite and scarce asset. There is only so much of it across the U.S.A., and an even smaller percentage of land which is buildable with access to water, public utilities, roads, schools, and other very important components. Finding, brokering, disclosing, building, and / or reselling raw, unentitled land with little to no improvements or fully improved land that is ready for a builder or developer to break ground on for anywhere from one custom home to upwards of hundreds or thousands of single-family, condominium, townhome, or multi-family apartment units is one of the most important processes in the real estate investing, brokering, and development fields today. For investors, buyers, contractors, and / or developers, the highest percentage of their potential profit margins may come from buying the perceived undervalued dirt or land at the cheapest price possible. The more informed that a client’s real estate agent is today regarding land opportunities, then the higher the potential financial upside or profit margins may be for the same clients. Some real estate agents may focus their entire careers primarily on being a “Land Broker” while others may only spend some of their time or even none of their business careers working on land deals in their regions of interest either locally or even on the other side of the nation.

    This course is iPad compatible. Urbanization is not a new phenomenon, but what is significant about urban growth today is the accelerated pace at which it is occurring. According to the UN, more than 1 million people move to cities globally every week and 6.3 billion will be living in cities by 2050. That is 67% of the world’s population. For real estate professionals, this means that business strategies must evolve with the changing patterns of demand in urban, suburban, and rural regions of property development. This course will provide you with the tools you need to navigate the ever-evolving real estate market by providing you with statistical histories on urban, suburban, and rural U.S. regions, an explanation of the “boomerang” effect from cities to suburbia and vice versa, and information on the current popularity of urban areas, among other topics.

    This course traces the growth of Ohio and its cities, from prehistoric settlers to the new Urbanization and Smart Growth of today’s cities. We begin with a discussion on the many cultures that created a rich and dynamic growth that took full advantage of Ohio’s abundance and created the many industries that helped it become one of the United States’ premier states. We will discuss Ohio’s Northwest Territory days, when the beginnings of land survey and zoning laws were an innovation that would lay the groundwork for the future of the United States and many other countries. On that foundation, Ohio’s people expressed their diversity through their cities, which were connected with a series of canals, roads and railways. We will discuss how these systems enabled Ohio to share its new industries, goods, and services with the rest of the world. We will cover the political, industrial, and economic influences that affected the rise and fall of Ohio’s growth and prosperity. Finally, we will show how to counter the effects of urban blight, and revitalize our cities into thriving metro areas with all of the industry and amenities to draw a new generation, while sustaining the entire populace.
