URBS410: Real Estate Principles
Distance Learning Course, Fall, 2023
Andrew Schuhmann, MUP, J.D.
A distance education course taught in English. No prerequisites. The Kentucky Real Estate Commission has an education requirement for taking the sales license exam. Taking two real-estate courses help you meet the education requirement.
The course provides decision makers with a basic understanding of real estate principles that will help them to make informed business and development decisions relating to real estate development. A general introduction to the role of real estate in governance, and the particulars of the wide range of subjects associated with it as a business and necessary for its practice as a profession, are provided. Heightened attention will be paid to the importance of value in real estate decision making to include whether and how to lease, buy, or mortgage a property acquisition. Also of particular focus will be the professional ethical obligations and expectations of those whose professional employment is as a Realtor, City Manager, or Planner.
