Learn what it takes to get an unpopular home sold!

Listing agents—are you tired of trying to sell a property that only needs a little work or various upgrades or improvements to make it a winner?

Buyer reps—are you tired of showing multiple homes to a potential buyer where each home is great, except for one or two factors that eliminates the property and causes you to drive to an endless number of properties to find the perfect fit for your client?

This course will help you guide your clients through the process of seeing not only what a property is, but what it has the potential to become.  You will start by helping your clients define exactly what they are seeking.  You’ll learn how to ask questions about both present needs and potential future requirements.  You’ll also learn about the shifting demographics of our maturing population and how to effectively communicate with multiple generations.

Learn about the opportunities to modify a home to make it saleable by tweaks, modifications, or major remodels.  You will learn about the costs associated with improvements and the Return on Investment (ROI) for a variety of house projects.  You will help your clients be able to visualize a property beyond what they can envision themselves.  Case studies will help you gain a new understanding of how properties changed to become clients’ dream homes!

  • Assess Client’s Specific Requirements

Feb 15 – Feb 15 Winning Strategies for Insurance Claim Work Class (Includes Energy) (7-Credit Hours) Bloomington, MN Day
General 7
$98.00  Add to Cart 

During the building slowdown of the mid-2000s, many contractors looked to diversify their list of preferred offerings. Some contractors added additional specialty offerings, such as decks or windows.  Others entered the potentially risky foreclosure market. And some looked to expand to insurance repair work.

There will always be claimable damage losses to property that will be covered by insurance. Losses could come from fire, water damage, natural disasters, or an unexpected failure of a building component. Many building contractors and remodelers already have the skills, knowledge, abilities, and tools to perform needed restoration work. However, working with insurance claims is different from working face-to-face with a homeowner, mainly because other parties and regulations are involved.

This course will highlight and explain the typical processes involved in restoring property back to pre-loss condition. You will learn how to work with the insurance company representative, the homeowner, and the lending institution. If you are looking for another niche to get into, this could be your calling!

Topics include: 

  • Understanding the insurance claim
  • The fine print: Policy 101 and language
  • A typical timeline
  • Estimating the claim and contracts

General 7.5
$98.00  Add to Cart 

Finally, a course that tells you everything you need to know about legitimate value that matters in today's rigorous appraisal world.

Calling all real estate agents, contractors, builders and appraisers...our expert instructor takes you from the glitzy showroom to covert back alleys of valuing products and features of homes with the focal lens of an appraiser, contractor/builder AND real estate professional in mind.

You'll learn the universal language used by appraisers that contractors and real estate agents can translate to knowledge that pays when advising clients on everything from product selections to appropriate offers on property or identifying an appropriate listing price for selling a property. You’ll acquire an insider's view of how value is defined and assigned by the appraiser. Also, you'll understand the consumer criteria of price, longevity, performance, aesthetics, and resale for a variety of property elements. Learn what does and does not have monetary value in an appraiser’s eyes with a snapshot of the essential tools and assessment methods used to establish the ultimate value of a property. Also, learn where value lies from a cost approach so you can help your clients identify poor quality in spite of acceptable appearance. Find out what the six surprising low-cost, high-value materials are, what type of siding lasts the longest, and which foundation type will save you the most money in the long run.

Learn about the real differences in construction quality, what has monetary value and what has aesthetic value alone. The instructor translates otherwise confusing terms and definitions into useful information you can communicate with your clients. Whether your interest is in existing property, new construction or proposed renovations, you’ll pick up essential information to increase your professional competence, evident in your next client conversation.

This course has been approved for real estate, appraisal, and contractor continuing education for 7.5 hours of continuing education credit.  This course does not include the energy hour for contractors.

Topics Include:

  • Appraisal 101 - what they do and why it matters to you
  • What the new quality numbers mean to your clients
  • Differentiating characteristics

General 7.5
$98.00  Add to Cart 

Learn what it takes to get an unpopular home sold!

Listing agents—are you tired of trying to sell a property that only needs a little work or various upgrades or improvements to make it a winner?

Buyer reps—are you tired of showing multiple homes to a potential buyer where each home is great, except for one or two factors that eliminates the property and causes you to drive to an endless number of properties to find the perfect fit for your client?

This course will help you guide your clients through the process of seeing not only what a property is, but what it has the potential to become.  You will start by helping your clients define exactly what they are seeking.  You’ll learn how to ask questions about both present needs and potential future requirements.  You’ll also learn about the shifting demographics of our maturing population and how to effectively communicate with multiple generations.

Learn about the opportunities to modify a home to make it saleable by tweaks, modifications, or major remodels.  You will learn about the costs associated with improvements and the Return on Investment (ROI) for a variety of house projects.  You will help your clients be able to visualize a property beyond what they can envision themselves.  Case studies will help you gain a new understanding of how properties changed to become clients’ dream homes!

Mar 24 – Mar 24 Winning Strategies for Insurance Claim Work Class (Includes Energy) (7-Credit Hours) St. Paul, MN Day
General 7
$98.00  Add to Cart 

During the building slowdown of the mid-2000s, many contractors looked to diversify their list of preferred offerings. Some contractors added additional specialty offerings, such as decks or windows.  Others entered the potentially risky foreclosure market. And some looked to expand to insurance repair work.

There will always be claimable damage losses to property that will be covered by insurance. Losses could come from fire, water damage, natural disasters, or an unexpected failure of a building component. Many building contractors and remodelers already have the skills, knowledge, abilities, and tools to perform needed restoration work. However, working with insurance claims is different from working face-to-face with a homeowner, mainly because other parties and regulations are involved.

This course will highlight and explain the typical processes involved in restoring property back to pre-loss condition. You will learn how to work with the insurance company representative, the homeowner, and the lending institution. If you are looking for another niche to get into, this could be your calling!

Topics include: 

  • Understanding the insurance claim
  • The fine print: Policy 101 and language
  • A typical timeline
  • Estimating the claim and contracts
