3 Hour Real Estate Finance Course Description

HD Video Course - Instructor: Gwyn Besner

Real estate agents wear many hats in their profession. They assist their clients with the buying and selling of real property. To that end, they market, list and promote sales. They advise, help negotiate, and consult with clients on market conditions, mortgages, legal requirements and financing to ensure a fair and honest transaction. Having an understanding of the legal environment surrounding the financial aspects of real estate dealings is one of the most important areas of expertise to be able to share with clients in order to build enduring and profitable relationships.

  • Describe the importance of case law that illustrates the problems in the conveyance of real property.
