Course Description

Have you ever wanted to be a landlord? This multi-faceted career can be challenging and rewarding both personally and financially. There are many legal and financial pitfalls to avoid on your journey for passive income, and this innovative class is here to help. Our online property management course provides a broad yet detailed examination of the many areas that a property manager must blend together to be successful. Lesson 1 asks the question: are you ready to be a landlord? It focuses on the disciplines involved in property management and discusses planning and goal setting. In Lesson 2, you'll discover the benefits of commercial and residential properties, and what types of tenants will be renting from you. We explain what to do before purchasing a property and how to make an offer in Lesson 3.

Ownership rights and responsibilities are discussed in Lesson 4, including laws and regulations you must abide by. Lesson 5 examines the financial factors to consider and how to set rental prices. You'll learn how to choose the best tenants and how to attract them to your property in Lesson 6. Dealing with tenants (and how to avoid bad ones) makes up Lesson 7.

Lesson 8 covers handling tenant issues and explains the eviction process. We focus on the lease in Lesson 9 by explaining how to create a lease and the lease dispute resolution options are available to you. Lesson 10 will help you understand the five types of property maintenance and describes common trouble spots. In Lesson 11 we discuss financing options for purchasing your property. The course concludes with Lesson 12, which explains how to sell your property.
