9 Hour Course
Course ID: 32806
Approved By: Texas Real Estate Commission
This course package will meet half of the 18-hour CE requirement that Texas real estate licensees are subject to. In the course, we’ll review principles and practices essential to the practice of real estate.
The course will begin with a review of the legal descriptions of land and real property, including the survey system. Then, we’ll talk about encumbrances that may affect real estate, including easements, liens, and more. Title issues that can arise, such as clouded titles, will also be discussed, before moving on to the process of recording a title transfer.
After that we’ll review the method by which property is assessed for taxes, as well as the different ways that property value can be appraised.
We’ll also talk about different sources of financing that can be tapped for a property purchase, including down payment assistance and other programs.
Then we’ll walk through a review of the sale agreement use in real estate transactions, before we talk about the unique arrangement of neutral escrows and co-ops, where an agent facilitates a transaction.
We’ll talk about foreclosure of a property, including the different kinds of foreclosure and remedies that homeowners may be able to pursue to avoid losing their homes, before we finish the course with a class of financial reports that licensees should be comfortable with.
Licensees will finish the course by completing an exam to show retention of the material covered.
