6 Hour Legal Descriptions/Estimating and Bidding for Success

Course Description

Legal descriptions, as the name implies, are the way and means by which real property, or real estate, is legally identified, conveyed, assessed and taxed. When real estate is transacted, it is the legal description that uniquely describes and identifies the property involved in the transaction and all of its appurtenances. Legal descriptions are used in all types of transactions, not just those involving the sale or purchase of real estate. Legal descriptions are used in deeds of conveyance, mortgages, claims of title, leases, title insurance policies, easements, etc. To do this effectively, an adequate understanding of legal descriptions is necessary.

This course will also explain the methods of construction delivery, different types of estimates, and the tools needed by the estimator to tender a bid. Being able to read and understand blueprints is also integral to the estimating process. Knowing how to apply and itemize costs for specific activities and materials, based on a set of plans and related professional resources, is key. The estimator who can visualize the project, and accurately determine its costs will become one of the most important persons in any construction company.

6 Hour Michigan Fair Housing, Agency & Auction Law Package Description

2-Hour Fair Housing Online Course Description – Instructor: Gwyn Besner

It is important to realize Fair Housing laws are very much a part of today’s real estate market. Both Federal and State governments employ “testers” to police the industry. Testing is not considered entrapment and the results are admissible in court. Fair Housing is the law of the land, and even in the face of some apparent exceptions, there is no room for discrimination of any sort in the business of housing.

Gwyn Besner of The Acme Institute, is a respected and well known educator in Real Estate.  She leads this top quality online video course that walks you through the basic principles of the Civil Rights Act, Federal and State Fair Housing, and ADA requirements.

3-Hour Code of Ethics Course Description – Instructor: Gwyn Besner

Realtors should recognize that the interests of the nation and its citizens require the highest and best use of the land and the widest distribution of land ownership. They require the creation of adequate housing, the building of functioning cities, the development of productive industries and farms, and the preservation of a healthful environment.

Such interests impose obligations beyond those of ordinary commerce. They impose grave social responsibility and a patriotic duty to which Realtors should dedicate themselves, and for which they should be diligent in preparing themselves. Realtors, therefore, are zealous to maintain and improve the standards of their calling and share with their fellow Realtors a common responsibility for its integrity and honor.

This course outlines the standards of practice expected of licensed realtors, and provides several case studies to illustrate those standards.

I have used Red Vector for years and tried your site this time.  I was very pleased – it was easy to use and I appreciated that. This tends to be a boring job (taking CE courses) and I like to work outside, but I enjoyed the course and it was informative too!  And… you answer the phone!
