Attention Real Estate Applicants:

  • Pursuant to Chapter 475, Florida Statutes, electronic fingerprinting became mandatory beginning July 1, 2006, for all real estate applicants. 

Florida Law  
The focus of this module is to refresh legal concepts and their importance in the practice of real estate. For instance, because of the many divergent types of businesses and people that a brokerage deals with, it is essential that licensed sales associates and broker associates as well as brokers themselves are sufficiently knowledgeable about the laws regulating their profession. This module is designed to explore some of these distinctions as well as some of the general obligations of these individual licensees. 

This module covers a broad range of issues related to license law. To help the student navigate this subject, it includes the following lessons: 

The Commission 
Registration and Partnerships 
Licensing and Examinations 
Real Estate Business Practices

In addition, this module includes a final practice lesson. This concluding lesson presents real-world dilemmas and concrete applications of the information presented in the rest of the course. As the student completes this course, he or she should try to develop a broad picture of license law, how it relates directly to him or her and its necessity within the practice of this profession. The last lesson will help with this objective by presenting comprehensive content questions, practice problems and case studies.

ASSET MANAGEMENT
COURSE DESCRIPTION:

Asset Management is the term used for the decision-making process involved in maximizing returns on real property investments. This process includes such decisions as whether to renew a lease for a tenant, purchase or lease more assets, improve, sell, or rent one’s current assets, etc. The asset manager must be aware of market trends and indicators and must be able to accurately predict the cash inflows and outflows of holdings. This module provides an introduction to the basics of asset management. It introduces the student to the key ideas and concepts of management as well as the techniques a manager will use to evaluate the market and evaluate the financial impact of alternatives in order to make properly informed decisions. The student will learn how to handle not only well-established properties, but distressed properties as well. We will also give instructions on how to successfully market a revenue-increasing strategy. 

Upon completion of this course, the student will:

Be familiar with the basic concepts of asset management. 
Be familiar with the common decisions faced by an asset manager.

Contracts, Purchase and Sales Agreements
Agreement is an essential component in the legal transference of ownership. In real estate, contracts are the instruments by which agreements are reached for the conveyance of property. Whether a salesperson is promising to sell a property within a specified period of time, a prospective buyer is placing an offer on a house or a seller is considering an offer on property, some type of contract is involved.

In this Contracts course, the student learns about the types of general contracts as well as the different kinds of real estate contracts. The module begins by providing the student with an overview of the various types of contracts: bilateral, unilateral, implied, express, executed, executory, valid, void, voidable and unenforceable. Once the student is introduced to the different types of contracts, he or she learns what makes a contract legally enforceable, this being the five components that make a contract valid: mutual assent, legally competent parties, consideration, lawful objective and adherence to a statute of frauds.

This course will introduce the student to two of the three factors that create a contract: offers and acceptances. When there is an offer and acceptance, the parties can either perform their respective parts of the contract or breach the contract by not fulfilling their obligations. Then we will discuss the third component of a legally binding and enforceable contract—performance. There are four basic types of contracts in real estate: sales contracts, option agreements, contract for deeds and leases; these types of contracts being those that deal in the governance of the real estate industry which, as a real estate professional, the student should be familiar with.

Upon completion of this module, the student will be able to:

Name and explain the various components of a valid contract. 
Identify the differences between a unilateral and bilateral contract. 
Describe the various types of contracts. 
Recognize the difference between a forbearance and performance agreement. 
Outline the features of a contract (and the contracting parties) that make a contract legally binding. 
Recognize the general features of a completed contract. 
Identify when a contract can be discharged. 
Recognize the different kinds of real estate contracts.

FAIR HOUSING
COURSE INTRODUCTION:

All Americans have the right to attempt to purchase, rent, or finance housing for themselves in the location of their choosing, regardless of their gender, religion, handicap, color, race, national origin or familial status. To help ensure that no one is deprived of this right, Congress passed the federal Fair Housing Act in 1968. This Act prohibits unethical discrimination by those who rent, sell and finance residential real estate. This module discusses the federal Fair Housing Act, as well as other anti-discrimination laws that directly affect the real estate industry and the financing of real estate. Upon completion of this course, you will understand the legislation, its purpose, and importance. You will also be familiar with the penalties for violating such statutes and have a better understanding of how you can avoid unethical discrimination in your everyday conduct. 

This module includes the following lessons: 

Introduction to Fair Housing 
Discrimination 
Legal Protections against Discrimination 
Enforcement of Fair Housing Laws 
How to Avoid Actions that are Discriminatory 

Initially, this module will introduce the federal Fair Housing Act, explaining the groups of people whom it covers and the various wrongs against which the law is meant to protect those people. In addition, we will discuss the meaning of discrimination and the existence of certain exemptions to the law. After detailing the Fair Housing Act, this course will move on to other relevant statutes, such as the federal Equal Credit Opportunity Act and the Americans with Disabilities Act. This module concludes with a real estate practice lesson that will present you with various case studies. Using the information you have gained from this course, this final lesson provides you with an opportunity to decide how to handle the common predicaments that often face those providing brokerage services.

Tips before you get started:

  • Familiarize yourself with all of the requirements to be an agent by visiting the Department of Business and Professional Regulation Division of Real Estate*. The licensing process is fairly straight-forward but there are several required forms and fees before the application can be filed.

  • Select courses that fit your learning style (i.e., activities and engagement, quizzes, exams and the ability to stop and return to the course). Classroom Online offers Florida Pre-license courses for 3 different learning styles, an all Online Version, a correspondence book version and a correspondence pdf version. 
  • Test your knowledge and prepare for the exam. Take an exam prep course that matches your state’s exam environment. Classroom Online offers both a National portion exam prep and Florida portion exam prep.
