Product Overview

In cities across the United States, real estate professionals like you are learning how to help families find homes they can afford. Savvy real estate professionals are looking beyond their traditional client bases toward working families and first-time buyers. They are forming partnerships with government agencies and nonprofits. They are adapting existing programs to meet the needs of specific communities. And they are developing relationships to help their clients cope with personal challenges. And in community after community, they are succeeding.

Expanding Housing Opportunities educates students on the range of affordable housing opportunities and the clients seeking them.

Through this class you will:

  • Learn how affordability affects the market, your clients, your business, and the community.
  • Analyze affordable financing options—at local, state, and federal levels—and assistance programs for buyers and renters.
  • Discover how to build alliances to expand housing opportunities through advocacy, workforce housing initiatives, and green building concepts.

This course teaches you how to build partnerships in your practice. You’ll learn how to develop relationships with housing counselors, non-profit organizations, lenders, and governmental agencies and officials. These partnerships will open new avenues to affordability. Most important, you’ll partner with your clients more effectively than before as you find the services and opportunities that are right for them. Vital to your ability to establish new partnerships will be your understanding of the issues, programs, and opportunities surrounding affordable housing today. By the end of the course, you’ll understand what makes these partnerships work.
