Course Description

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.
Upon completion of this module the student will be able to.

  • Identify motivated buying and selling clients.
  • Outline the attributes of qualified and non – qualified products and how they can benefit to the sales process.

Course Description

This lesson explores the meaning of real property ownership and the differences between real estate and personal property. Although these terms are often used interchangeably in everyday conversation, there are different rights associated with these different commodities. It is important that licensees understand the differences between them and are able to explain the distinctions to their clients and customers.

We will learn how different commodities-land, real estate, and real property- transfer and relate to one another. In addition, we will learn about land use theory and come to understand how our federal, state, municipal and private authorities govern and plan our communities.

Course Description

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. The quality of management directly affects the profitability of the property being managed.

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

Course Description

Clear, mutually acceptable agreements are an essential component of the legal transference of ownership. In the practice of real estate, contracts are the instruments used to describe and record the agreements surrounding the conveyance of property. Some type of contract is nearly always involved, whether a salesperson is promising to sell a property within a specified period of time, a prospective buyer is placing an offer on a house or a seller is considering an offer on property.

Before entering into a legally binding agreement, real estate professionals must fully understand the contracts that govern their industry. Failure to understand contracts opens a licensee to various kinds of liability and can seriously damage one’s professional reputation. Therefore, it is vital that real estate professionals learn this material so they can protect themselves against errors, oversights and misunderstandings.

In this course, the student will learn about the types of general contracts as well as the different kinds of real estate contracts. The course begins by providing the student with an overview of the various types of contracts: bilateral, unilateral, implied, express, executed, executory, valid, void, voidable and unenforceable. Once the student is introduced to the different types of contracts, he or she learns what makes a contract legally enforceable, this being the five components that make a contract valid: mutual assent, legally competent parties, consideration, lawful objective and adherence to a statute of frauds.
