This course discusses Internet basics, the Internet’s effects on the real estate industry, ways to create effective websites, Internet marketing techniques, and email.

The Internet presents an unprecedented opportunity for real estate professionals. Licensees and firms can create Web sites to advertise their services and their listings incorporating pictures of homes, tours, promotions, property information and MLS listings. It is very important that licensees include their Web site name in all advertising efforts; sites should incorporate direct – response marketing and should include effective branding techniques. Because many people begin their online search for a home with search engines, site operators need to optimize their sites. Site operators can create VOWs or integrate IDX on their Web sites to incorporate MLS searches.

Web sites are designed primarily to generate contacts. In many cases Web site visitors first contact a real estate professional by email. Thus, it is crucial that real estate Web site owners master their email skills. This course offers specific advice on how to use email effectively and discusses spam and its implications for real estate professionals.

The objective of this module is to teach real estate professionals how they can help their clients with the process of buying and selling property on a tax – favorable basis.

The first two lessons describe a method of real estate purchase using pre – tax dollars and of growing the estate within a qualified product. We will discuss the current tax advantages of using both qualified and non – qualified tax products such as IRAs, SEP IRAs, 401(k)s, Roth IRAs and charitable gift annuities. The use of these applications provides the real estate professional with an opportunity to create a long – standing and profitable relationship with his or her clients, as well as attracting a more sophisticated investor wishing to find an alternative to 1031 exchanges.

Lessons three and four of this module will explain the many important aspects of Internal Revenue Code Section 1031. The course will focus on the benefits of the 1031 exchange for the investor, the licensee and the other parties involved in the transaction.

The concluding lesson in this module presents real – world dilemmas and concrete applications of the information presented in the rest of the course. As the student completes this module, he or she should try to develop a broad picture of tax – favorable real estate transactions and how they fit into the larger practice of real estate. The last lesson will help with this project by presenting comprehensive content questions, practice problems and case studies.

Property management is a special category of real estate work. The term “property management” generally refers to the group of services which an owner hires a professional property manager or management firm to perform.

In many cases, property managers must be licensed real estate brokers.

This module discusses liens, taxes and foreclosures. There are many types of liens, as well as several kinds of taxes, that can attach to a parcel of real estate. When borrowers default on a debt, foreclosure is the process by which lienholders collect the unpaid portion of a debt. Because liens represent an interest in real property, it is crucial that real estate licensees develop an in – depth understanding of liens and lien – related issues. Such knowledge also helps licensees to better advise buyers and sellers.
The first lesson presents a general overview of liens. It explains the classification of liens and discusses the types of non – tax liens. Lesson two discusses taxes and tax issues, including ad valorem taxes, real estate tax computation, special assessments, real estate transfer taxes, federal income taxes, capital gains taxes and tax shelters for homeowners and investors. It also discusses the priority of liens. Lesson three addresses the methods of foreclosure, redemption, deficiency judgments, tips for homeowners facing foreclosure and fraudulent behaviors related to foreclosure.

The conclusion of this module presents real world dilemmas and applications of the information presented. As the student completes the module, he or she should try to paint a big picture of the issues surrounding liens, taxes and foreclosures, which the module addresses with comprehensive questions, activities and case studies.

This course covers major environmental hazards.
