Financing is critical to a smooth real estate transaction. A lender who does a great job is a tremendous partner. A lender who doesn't perform can cause a buyer tremendous heartache, money, and even a home. The goal of this course is to give buyers a basic understanding of loans and loan types, how the loan functions in the course of a real estate transaction, as well as best practices to set yourself up for a smooth transaction and loan process. This is told from the point of view of a real estate broker / agent who has been a part of more than $100 Million in real estate transactions and seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. A little work up front in this category is priceless, and really a requirement in the current real estate climate.
