We're thrilled to receive this latest approval
Boca Raton, FL (Vocus) September 8, 2010
Foreclosure.com today announced that the Florida Real Estate Commission (FREC), which administers and enforces real estate license law in the “Sunshine State,” has approved its Certified Short Sale Agent (CSSA) training program, once again validating the exceptional educational opportunities offered through “The Agent University.”
This latest announcement comes on the heels of the Certified Foreclosure Agent program receiving the same stamp of approval from FREC in Nov. 2009.
“We’re thrilled to receive this latest approval,” said Foreclosure.com Director of Education, Linda Yates. “Understanding short sales, especially in today’s volatile market, is critical for agents everywhere. CSSA training is an invaluable career-building opportunity, providing professionals with the tools and resources to capitalize on this ever-evolving trend.”
The CSSA curriculum comprises four modules that take agents from a basic understanding of short sales all the way to developing a business plan to attack the market from a proactive position.
The four modules, which are dynamically updated to reflect the latest trends in the short sale arena, include:
1. Essentials of short sales
2. Understanding Home Affordable Foreclosure Alternatives (HAFA)
3. Short sale automation
4. How to take new skills to market
“Short sales are a fantastic way for distressed homeowners, lenders, buyers and agents to make the best out of bad situations,” said Yates. “CSSA training teaches agents how to bring all these parties together to coordinate the fastest closings possible and keep the market moving.”
It’s important to note that all licensed real estate agents nationwide are eligible to receive CSSA training — it is not limited to Florida professionals only. However, Florida agents now receive continuing education credits with successful completion of the CSSA and Certified Foreclosure Agent courses during live training sessions.
Agents – in Florida and beyond -- who are interested in becoming certified can do so online through “The Agent University” at any time. In addition, the Foreclosure.com education team is always prepared to deliver onsite short sale and foreclosure agent training to large groups and brokerages at discounted rates throughout the United States.
