National Property Inspections (NPI) offers two new real estate education courses approved by the State of Ohio Department of Commerce Division of Real Estate & Professional Training for continuing education credit toward license renewal. The NPI education courses are designed to familiarize agents with the home inspection process and how the process fits into a home sale.
The approved education courses: "Home Inspection 101 for Real Estate Professionals" and "Exterior Home Inspection Education for Real Estate Professionals" each account for one hour of continuing education credit.
"Home Inspection 101 for Real Estate Professionals" educates agents on the home inspection process and how the setting of customer expectations regarding the conditions of the home and the home inspection process are critical to creating customer satisfaction. "Exterior Home Inspection Education for Real Estate Professionals" educates agents on the home's exterior components including siding, roofing, decks, their maintenance requirements and common conditions encountered during home inspections. The course will enhance the agents' and brokers' abilities to interact with customers and home inspectors on issues involving exterior components, which may become a concern to home buyers/sellers during the home selling process.
