This course is specifically designed for real estate brokers and salespersons engaged in the practice of brokerage involving the building, remodeling,/altering of residential real estate. The course will discuss the Section 203(k) program which is the Federal Department's primary program for the rehabilitation and repair of single family properties.

Additional topics include potential local zoning issues affecting construction and alteration of both new and existing dwellings, warranties, sales agreements and financing issues encountered by the seller, broker and buyer of residential real estate.
