General Information

Investment property transactions can easily increase your market by 20% and build your net worth at the same time. In this one-day RRC course, you will learn why and how rental properties are IDEAL investments that outperform other types of investments while giving you more control to optimize financial returns. In addition to guiding you through the process of developing your own property investing strategy, this course leverages powerful and easy-to-use online financial apps that simplify the process of evaluating and selecting properties that align with your investment objectives. After completing the course, you will be able to immediately implement your strategy for yourself and your investor clients, using the same homes you’ve been selling for owner-occupants and packaging them to appeal to investors.

  • Develop strategies to increase wealth for your investor clients and yourself through real estate investments
  • Integrate real estate investing into your business plan
  • Find, analyze, and select successful real estate investments
