At Your Pace Online offers this complete CE package to help licensees get renewed and get on with their business!
The course begins with MCE legal updates to keep licensees abreast of the newest changes in real estate regulations, including those pertaining to property management. Then, we'll review disclosures, addendums, and other contract forms that have been modified. After a review of antitrust laws that licensees must observe, we'll touch on the duties of an agent, and the Deceptive Trade Practices Consumer Protection Act.
We'll also talk about the important concept of fair housing - including the history that made fair housing legislation necessary.
The final section of the course will focus on technical aspects of real estate transactions, such as legal descriptions, property encumbrances, title issues, and the recording of title transfers. We'll also compare the different methods used to value real property and the basis for property taxes.
Licensees will also learn about financing options for property purchases, and the influence that the federal government has over the financial markets. We'll review sales agreements in detail, and talk about the different requirements of an agent in a neutral escrow position rather than a single agency situation.
The course will conclude with a section on foreclosure processes and remedies, as well as a 215-question final exam, as mandated by the state.
