September 16 | 2pm-6pm | Instructor: Mike Harper
(CEE2493) 4 hours of elective credit

Many investors and owners, of non-personal use Real Estate can benefit by postponing/deferring Capital Gains Taxes on sales if they are willing to consider either owner financing or replacing the property sold with other property. These people need help and guidance in making good decisions and understanding the complicated landscape surrounding investment sales, Capital Gains Taxes and options for tax deferment. With the increase in Capital Gains Tax rates in 2013 and potential for future increases or abolition of favorable tax treatment for investments, the volume of these types of deferment has tremendous growth potential. IRC 1031 exchanges are getting increased public interest, yet both the process and the applicability are extremely complicated and fraught with caveats for the unsuspecting seller. This course will provide an understanding of all of the above and will prepare licensees to help sellers identify options and point them to competent professionals (CPA, Attorney and/or Qualified Intermediary).

New Construction Inspection vs Resale Inspection – VIRTUAL
September 28 | 9am-11am | Instructor: Rael Levin
CEE2822 | 2 hour CE (LLR+CTAR)

Sponsored by Home-Probe

Are all inspections created equal? The short answer is no, and this class is designed to help agents understand the differences and why. It’s important for buyers to know that a resale inspection is more performance based, think of it as a visual audit while a new construction inspection does not provide the benefit of time. This may also help an agent set expectations for the buyer who’s looking for code violations to be in the resale inspection report or to have cosmetic issues addressed in a new construction inspection. A more informed buyer makes the real estate transaction and experience more enjoyable. The more information they have, the less chance there is of uncertainties developing in the transaction process later.
