Each year, the Annual Commission Update (ACU) Course provides important information related to regulatory changes and issues affecting Colorado real estate practice.

This four-hour course meets the regulatory requirements for CO broker continuing education. It highlights compliance issues, reviews general practice knowledge, and summarizes recent regulatory and Commission changes that affect the real estate industry. In addition, it increases licensee competency so that brokers may better serve consumers.

Caveat: To ensure you're in compliance with updated rules and regulations, this course is best taken at the beginning to middle of the year! Also, the Commission would like to remind licensees that the ACU is not a contracts course. You'll want to ensure you take steps required so that you understand current contracts on a deeper level.

This course covers:

- Common compliance issues, including new rule highlights, DORA investigative statistics, top violations, and continuing education issues
- Adverse material fact disclosure, including a case study of how things can go wrong
- Intellectual property as it relates to real estate practice
- Technology and privacy issues
- Legislation impacting property management, including habitability, bed bugs, and tenant health and safety
- New forms and changes including listing contracts, bills of sale, and closing instructions
- Resources for licensees

Tactics that work with motivated, excited sellers don't always translate well when working with short sale sellers and short sale buyers. Toss lender approvals, junior lien holders, and inflexible timelines into the mix, and you end up with a whole new ball game.

In a short sale transaction, the motivation for each party is different than the standard transaction, and as the professional in the scene, you need to adjust accordingly. This course speaks to your interaction with short sale sellers, and how you can help them through a tough process while diligently advocating on their behalf. We cover how to figure out an appropriate listing price, negotiate with the lender's representative, sort through debt settlement terminology, and carry the deal through to closing. We also look at the process from a buyer's agent perspective. Additional cautions, considerations, and fraud prevention tactics are required when advocating on behalf of these deal-seeking buyers.

Affordable housing, or lack thereof, has been a discussion topic in the media, advocacy groups, and the political arena for years, and lately the chatter has become louder and more urgent. How bad is it? According to the leader of one housing coalition, “It’s not a housing crisis. It’s a housing catastrophe.” In this course, we’ll explore the impact that a lack of affordable housing has on individuals, families, and the real estate industry.

If it’s true that inside of every problem lies an opportunity, the opportunity here is huge. We’ll explore largely untapped solutions to locate housing and secure financing, even for low-income borrowers with less-than-stellar credit and little to no down payment. And in three “Bringing it Home” lessons, we’ll show how real estate professionals can become part of the solution for their clients and their communities.

Course highlights include:

- Issues that contribute to the affordable housing crisis
- Socio-economic impact of the affordable housing crisis
- Demographics and geographics of affordable housing
- Creative housing solutions
- Loan programs with minimal and no downpayment options, down payment assistance programs, and creative financing solutions
- How real estate licensees can be part of the affordable housing solution while building their business and improving their communities

Emotional support animals, service animals, and reasonable accommodation. How does the concept of reasonable accommodation play out in property management? Must a property manager accept a tenant's emotional support animal, and under what conditions? What proof can a property manager or landlord require of a tenant who claims a need for an emotional support animal? What about homeowners associations—must accommodation be made in these communities? With some airlines accepting miniature horses on board as service animals, can Apartment 3B be far behind? How does the Fair Housing Act apply, and where does it all stop? This is a topic that sparks questions around what the laws are and how and when they apply in cases of individuals with assistance animals.

This four-hour course explores the issues and options for landlords and property managers surrounding assistance animals, helping real estate professionals recognize scenarios in which the fair housing and disabilities laws apply and helping to ensure that individuals with disabilities have equal access to housing.

Course highlights include:

- An overview of the evolution of fair housing law
- A cross-comparison between the Americans with Disabilities Act and the Fair Housing Act
- Definitions related to disability and the types of assistance animals
- A diagnosis of when the Americans with Disabilities Act applies, and when the Fair Housing Act does.
- A discussion as to how to work with clients with assistance animals
- An examination of how to handle reasonable requests for accommodation
- A look at pets in property and where they’re permitted by law
- A discussion on practical application of the laws in property management scenarios
- A sampling of case studies and legal trends as this field of the law continues to evolve
- Interactive activities and scenarios to seal in the new information and frame it in everyday context

Perhaps no task is more important than preparing a professional comparative market analysis. Whether for a buyer or seller, the CMA, properly done, can mean thousands of dollars in their pockets, and can make the difference between a sale and a sale fail. But because it’s such a well-worn tool, it’s tempting for a licensee to get complacent with the CMA, and “phone it in.” Don’t be that licensee.

This three hour course covers the how-tos of a professionally researched and presented comparative market analysis.

Course highlights include:

- The three-step approach to market analyses: the market, the property, the numbers
- Sources for subject property data and market data
- Using expired and active listings to inform pricing strategy
- How to prioritize criteria when selecting comparables
- How to adjust and homogenize selected comparables
- How to weight selected comparables when selecting a list price range

Sexual harassment and discrimination in real estate isn’t just for landlords anymore—not that it ever was. Thanks in part to movements such as #MeToo and Time’s Up, sexual harassment and sexual discrimination have moved to the forefront of the national conversation. Allegations, investigations, firings, resignations, and even arrests have rippled across major industries and affected high-profile individuals in entertainment, media, politics, and business. In short: workplace behavior is under a microscope like never before. The real estate industry is no exception, and some areas leave clients and licensees highly vulnerable.

In this course, we’ll take a closer look at how sexual harassment is defined and the impact such behavior can have on your clients, your brokerage, and your reputation. In addition, we’ll discuss actions you can take to ensure that your office is inclusive and welcoming to all, and that your clients’ best interests are always protected. This includes tips for putting together a comprehensive office policy that thoroughly addresses sexual harassment and sexual discrimination.

Technology is a tool. Used wisely, it can free up time usually spent on mundane tasks to allow licensees to work at a higher (and higher touch) level of client service. Used poorly, it can alienate clients, and even put them—and the licensee’s reputation—at risk.

Clients and prospective clients are using it, and want their real estate professional to be accessible and tech-savvy on their behalf. According to a 2017 National Association of REALTORS® real estate report, staying up to date on new platforms and systems will be one of the biggest challenges for brokerages in the coming years. The industry is changing, and technology is a big driver of that change.

This 3-hour course helps real estate professionals work with technology and reinforces putting client relationships first in the push to provide cutting edge tools and services.

Course highlights include:

- An overview of technology tools to enhance service to sellers, including drones, live streaming, single-property sites, and speaking photos, and ways to minimize risks involved in their use

The Fundamentals of Commercial Real Estate provides a solid foundation for your understanding of commercial real estate. The course covers the need-to-know information on a broad range of commercial topics.

If you're an experienced residential licensee, a few of the fundamentals of commercial real estate will be familiar to you—the importance of location, for example. In many other regards, commercial differs sharply from residential real estate. You'll be working with executives, investors, and business owners in commercial real estate, individuals whose focus is squarely on the bottom line.

Equipped with the information and advice found in this course, you'll be well-prepared to grasp the more complex aspects of commercial real estate as you gain more experience in the industry.

Course highlights include:

- Definitions of key terms and concepts that apply to commercial real estate.
- A detailed explanation of how to identify and meet the various needs of your commercial real estate clients.
- An analysis of the main differences between commercial and residential real estate sales.
- An overview of the most common valuation methods for real estate and businesses.
- Tips on gathering the demographic and location-related details that clients need to make well-informed decisions.

Where did credit start? How did credit develop into the FICO? This course covers the facts of subprime credit, what the score means and how the cycle of bad debt persists. We will cover how credit can affect a client's life and how to read a credit report. The outcome of the class will help brokers understand the credit crisis that a large percentage of the national population faces. Often times the real estate licensee is the first line of defense for clients with poor credit. By educating the business population licensees will no longer see credit as black and white.
