Americans with Disabilities Act ADA
An individual with a disability is defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) as a person who has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a person who has a history or record of such an impairment, or a person who is perceived by others as having such an impairment.
The Americans with Disabilities Act protects this group of people so that they may have equal access to public accommodations, employment, public services, and so on. Real estate licensees must be aware of these important laws so that they understand what is required in the environment, and also the appropriate treatment of this protected class of consumers under the law.
This course goes beyond the basics that real estate licensees learn in their pre-licensing courses. Upon completion of this course, real estate professionals will have a deeper understanding of the purpose, history, application, and enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act.
In chapter 1, we will explore ways to help buyers get ready to buy before they start their search, from getting their finances in order to understand the local market. In chapter 2, we’ll look at ways to help them conduct their search, structure their offer, and negotiate with the seller. Finally, we will learn how to prepare them for their responsibilities from contract to closing in chapter 3.
In chapter 1, we will look at tools to help your seller understand the current housing market, how to get their property ready by staging it to sell, and how to keep themselves and their possessions safe and secure. In chapter 2, we will discuss how to educate your sellers while their homes are on the market. Starting with a review of the Fair Housing Act, we will move on to advising your sellers how to handle multiple offers or what to do when there are what to do when there are no offers. And in chapter 3, we will review tips on negotiating from an informed position and helping your sellers know their rights and responsibilities.
- Educate your sellers during the listing presentation.
- Teach your clients of the importance of staging to sell.
- Help sellers understand strategies when their home hasn’t sold.
- Teach sellers how to evaluate and handle multiple offers.
- Help sellers better navigate contract negotiations.
This course looks at the history of equal opportunity in housing and examines in depth the most pertinent legislation in force today. The Fair Housing Act of 1968 was the first major legislation that applied to residential housing. The Fair Housing Amendments Act of 1988 broadened the coverage, increased the enforcement policies of the Act and stiffened the penalties invoked for violation of the Act. Specific advertising policies are investigated and illustrated. The procedure for filing a complaint of discrimination are studied in detail and there are lots of hints on how to stay clear of discriminatory practices in sales, rentals and financing of real estate
From Contract to Closing: A Breakdown of the Real Estate Market
Helping Buyers Narrow in on Their Dream Home
Sometimes buyers don't know what they want, or they think they know what they want, but nothing is quite right. This course will start with the importance of having buyers pre-approved for financing if they need it. We will provide some techniques to help buyers prioritize the things they want in a home and adjust his or her standard buying strategies to suit the needs of different buyers. While summarizing some important consumer preference studies we will shed light on how real estate licensees can simplify the home-buying process. We know that every buyer is different and this course will drill down the facts to help buyers discover what they truly want in their home.
Helping Clients Understand Real Estate Financing
One of the best ways to promote and market yourself to potential clients is, arguably, by becoming an expert in areas that benefit them. Although as a real estate licensee you should never give financial advice, the better you understand the concepts, processes, challenges, and calculations associated with real estate financing, the better you can assist your clients through this often-frustrating process.
This course will cover a brief history of the mortgage industry and introduce the players. We will discuss financing, security instruments, and legal clauses commonly included in these instruments. We’ll look at various loan types, including government-backed mortgage programs and discuss mortgage fraud and predatory lending. Finally, we will examine the loan process, qualifying standards for borrowers, and mortgage laws.

Implicit Bias Awareness and Cultural Competency
Cultural diversity itself isn't a problem — our differences have always been there; they're what make us unique. When working with people from another culture or background, you need to understand them and where their ideas of right and wrong come from. Culture is the way we were raised and the values, beliefs, and standards for behavior we learned. However, when you follow the Platinum Rule, “Treat others the way THEY want to be treated.” you are more likely to get clients and listings, make sales, and have a successful real estate career.
Implicit bias is normal. In fact, every person has biases of one kind or another and it’s okay to have different likes and dislikes. Unfortunately, some real estate agents let their biases get in the way and may discriminate against people from diverse backgrounds and cultures. This is the turning point from simple likes and dislikes to breaking fair housing laws and possible censure or loss of license. To avoid this behavior, many businesses and trade organizations encourage their employees and members to participate in implicit bias and diversity training. Discovering and overcoming implicit biases is a critical step toward improving personal growth and other areas of their lives, such as having a successful real estate career.
The course is intended to enhance the knowledge and effectiveness of real estate licensees and is approved for 4 hours of continuing education.

Real Estate Safety: Protect Yourself and Your Clients
Statistically speaking, real estate is a very safe profession. However, there are many potential dangers that agents and their clients are exposed to. While the number of work-related deaths and injuries in the real estate profession are relatively low, they do exist. Female real estate agents are more likely to become victims than men; however, men are not immune. Buyers and sellers also face risks from cyber theft to personal property damage and theft, to assaults.
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 prospect. When you think about our profession in this way, the job can sound dangerous. We can reduce this risk with some basic safety protocols. Even if your brokerage has a set of security procedures, there are additional steps you can take to keep yourself and your clients safe. The truth is that many brokerages rely on individual agents to establish their own safety measures
Real Estate Taxes
The federal government taxes individuals and other entities based on their earnings by means of a progressive income tax. In a progressive tax, the more you earn, the higher your tax rate. The important consideration of a progressive tax is that the taxpayer’s obligation increases as income increases, moving the taxpayer to higher tax brackets. One of the reasons for buying real estate is to get relief from taxes.
The tax benefits of homeownership differ from those available to owners of investment property. The legal reduction of tax liability, otherwise known as a tax shelter, is available to all owners of a primary residence as well as to a taxpayer owning investment property. However, different rules apply to each type of property. The rules must be followed carefully to earn the desired tax shelter.
Real Estate Trust Accounts
The main purpose of this course is to help further educate licensed real estate and similar industry professionals about trust accounts that are used in a variety real estate formats. Trust accounts are mandated by various municipal entities, and often guided by specific state legislation. This review will delineate multiple areas where trust account types are required, and explain how they work and function within numerous real estate vocations and corresponding business relationships.
Real Property Appraisals
Because appraisals are a crucial part of the transaction, real estate agents should understand the appraisal process. Even though you may prepare a competitive market analysis (CMA) for your clients, CMAs are not as detailed, nor do they serve the same purpose as an appraisal. A home appraisal is an unbiased determination of the fair market value of the home by a professionally-trained third party.
This course provides a review of the sales comparison, cost, and income approaches in appraising real estate.
This course provides continuing education hours for licensed real estate licensees. It is intended to enhance the knowledge and effectiveness of licensees and is approved for 4 hours of continuing education.
