HABITEC Completes Another Continuing Education course presentation for REALTORS licensed in Tennessee!!

On January 19, 2011, HABITEC presented the TENNESSEE HOME INSPECTION course at the Middle Tennessee Association of REALTORS (MTAR) facility at 311 Butler Drive, Murfreesboro, TN, 37127, from 08:30 AM - 4:00 PM. The Point of Contact at MTAR for this class was Roshawnda Perry-Barlow, MTAR Education Manager roshawnda@mtar.org 615-893-2242, 877-893-2242.

HABITEC offers the 6 hour TREC-approved class in Home Inspection topics pertinent to REALTORS. Topics include Exterior Components, Interior Spaces and Components, Foundations, Roof and Attic, HVAC, Electrical, and Plumbing. These classes are available in a classroom setting with Richard Acree as the Instructor. The classes are offered as a power point presentation with hundreds of fascinating pictures and interesting perspective offered by Richard. These classes also give REALTORS a chance to interact with a certified and licensed Home Inspector, ask questions and discuss in general and in detail the issues that come up during a Home Inspection.

The purpose of this course is to explain the rules of the State of Tennessee, Department of Commerce and Insurance, for Home Inspection procedures, methods and requirements. The classes will help Realtors understand what the Home Inspector should be looking at and what the Home Inspector should be looking for. Terminology, methods of inspection, tools and limitations of the Home Inspection processes will be included.

The end result of this course will be to help REALTORS understand the State of Tennessee rules and requirements for Home Inspections and better prepare the REALTOR to discuss the Home Inspection Report with their Client. The Client will then be able to understand the report and make a better decision regarding the real estate transaction.
