In Breaking Barriers in Fair Housing, we discuss the protections provided by the Fair Housing Act, and how licensees can best protect clients and their firms from discrimination.

New York real estate licensees must complete 22.5 hours of continuing education which must include at minimum 3 hours of instruction pertaining to Fair Housing and/or discrimination. Our 3.5 hours Law of the Land Fair Housing course will help your stay in compliance.

3.0 Agency Law Hours
A full understanding of Agency relationships and disclosures is not only essential for being a successful real estate professional, it is now a mandatory continuing education requirement for all New York real estate licensees. Our 3-hour Agency Exposed course satisfies the 1 mandatory hour of instruction in the law of agency for second and subsequent license renewal and also the 2-hour mandatory agency requirement for licensees renewing in their initial two-year licensing term. Proper agency disclosure is a vital part of today’s real estate world, but that was not always the case. An FTC report published in 1983 led to many changes in real estate agency representation and disclosure requirements for real estate professionals. This course reviews the results of this survey which showed that there was very little understanding and a lot of confusion about whom the real estate licensees were representing in the real estate transactions. All this understandably began to cause concern among the many sectors of the real estate profession. Upon completion of this course, New York real estate licensees will have a better understanding of agency structure and responsibilities, proper agency disclosures, and will be able to identify actions that could constitute a breach of fiduciary duties.

Tactics that work with motivated, excited sellers don't always translate well when working with short sale sellers and short sale buyers. Toss lender approvals, junior lien holders, and inflexible timelines into the mix, and you end up with a whole new ball game.

In a short sale transaction, the motivation for each party is different than the standard transaction, and as the professional in the scene, you need to adjust accordingly. This course speaks to your interaction with short sale sellers, and how you can help them through a tough process while diligently advocating on their behalf. We cover how to figure out an appropriate listing price, negotiate with the lender's representative, sort through debt settlement terminology, and carry the deal through to closing. We also look at the process from a buyer's agent perspective. Additional cautions, considerations, and fraud prevention tactics are required when advocating on behalf of these deal-seeking buyers.

Landlord representatives usually referred to as “leasing agents” or “leasing brokers,” serve a key role in commercial real estate: getting tenants for their clients’ buildings. Accomplishing that goal is a lengthy, multi-step process that includes positioning the product in the marketplace, identifying suitable prospects, creating and executing marketing plans, negotiating the deal, and managing all of the steps associated with the leasing process. Landlord reps must have their fingers on the pulse of their market. A thorough knowledge of tenant demographics, occupancy rates, leasing rates, and industry trends is essential. Beyond technical expertise, however, they must also be adept at relationship building, and must know how to coalesce the varying needs of tenants, landlords and leasing brokers into workable, win-win-win deals.

This course provides an overview of commercial leasing, the players involved in commercial leasing, their roles and goals.

Highlights of this course include:
  • An analysis of the commercial real estate market as it stands today
  • A description of the in-house and external landlord reps, and why landlords choose to work with landlord reps
  • A survey of a panel of six landlord representatives who have a combined total of nearly 200 years of experience in commercial real estate
  • A look at additional training, accreditation and associations for commercial real estate professionals

Real estate licensees who represent commercial clients, whether as buyers or sellers of commercial properties, must understand the process of valuing commercial properties. To best serve their commercial real estate clients, they need a solid understanding of how commercial properties are valued, how appraisers work, and how that important final number is determined.

Many of the tools and methodologies used by commercial appraisers can also be used by licensees to help their clients determine value when buying, selling or comparing commercial real estate. While a valuation prepared by a real estate licensee will never take the place of a formal appraisal, it is important for licensees to understand the definitions of value used by appraisers, the methodologies used, the three approaches to value, and how value of commercial properties is determined. It is also important for licensees to be able to read and extract information from a professional appraisal report.

Highlights of this course include:
  • Definitions of commonly used commercial appraisal terms
  • An in-depth look at the process of data collection, analysis and three approaches to value (cost, income and sales comparison) for commercial property valuation
  • Faculty expert, Bill James, a 40-year veteran of commercial appraisal, takes students step-by-step through a real-life appraisal report, which includes the process of data collection, approaches to value, analysis and value determination

Commercial real estate investors have two goals: generate cash flow and produce higher returns. However, unlike other investment types, investing in commercial property is not simply a matter of buying at one price and selling for more.

This course presents an overview of the factors impacting value and investment potential of commercial properties, gives licensees a solid understanding of the financial aspects of commercial real estate investment, and better prepares them to provide professional guidance to their commercial real estate clients when evaluating investment properties for purchase or sale.

Highlights of this course include:
  • The six main categories of commercial properties, and their specific challenges and opportunities for investors.
  • A definition of transit-oriented communities, and why they are a growing type of mixed-use development.
  • How zoning, building codes, title issues and the Americans with Disabilities Act impact commercial property development and investment potential.
  • How licensees can use financial analysis and individual investor profiles to assist clients in analyzing commercial properties for purchase and sale.
