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 student will learn which properties qualify under Section 1031 and how to use the various types of 1031 exchanges to enhance the client’s position in the investment real estate market.

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.

    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.

Such knowledge also helps licensees to better advise buyers and sellers.

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.

    All Americans have the right to attempt to purchase, rent, or finance housing for themselves in the location of their choosing, regardless of their gender, religion, handicap, color, race, national origin or familial status. To help ensure that no one is deprived of this right, Congress passed the federal Fair Housing Act in 1968.

    This module covers major environmental hazards. Licensees need to familiarize themselves with environmental issues because they have a responsibility to disclose environmental information to buyers that might affect their decision to buy a property. Environmental hazards can dramatically affect a property’s appeal, value and comparative safety; buyers, sellers, lenders and licensees can all thus be significantly affected by these problems.

    Throughout this module, students will learn to identify the internal and external environmental issues that can affect a property. They will learn about health hazards and environmental legislation; we will also discuss liability and responsibility for clean – up and protection. In addition to presenting these details, the lesson will also cover the various actions licensees should take with respect to environmental hazards, as well as how these issues affect licensees and lending. Licensees are not expected to be environmental experts, but in this module students will acquire a basic competency in environmental issues which will help them to elucidate issues for buyers, sellers and lenders. Knowledge of environmental issues will also help to protect them from charges of nondisclosure.

    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 environmental issues 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.
