To capitalize on growing demand for expert property assessment and increased interest in online learning courses, the National Association of RealtorsÂ®Â is now offering a Pricing Strategies Advisor certification available entirely online through the new Center for RealtorÂ®Â Development.
The Pricing Strategy Advisor certification combines a course and webinars to enhance RealtorsÂ®â€™ skills in pricing properties, working with appraisers, and understanding, finding and making adjustments to comparable properties.Â The course is designed for RealtorsÂ®Â of all experience levels and those who work with either buyers or sellers.
â€śThe market demands accurate property value assessments, so NAR is excited to provide RealtorsÂ®Â with enhanced tools, education and expertise to determine the most accurate value for a home and give their clients a leg up when buying or selling,â€ť said NAR President Tom Salomone, broker-owner of Real Estate II Inc. in Coral Springs, Florida. â€śRealtorsÂ®Â have extremely demanding work schedules, so it is also incredibly important for NARâ€™s certification courses be flexible and accommodating to their busy lifestyles; as with all of the nearly 100 courses offered through the Center for RealtorÂ®Â Development, the PSA certification can be completed entirely online and at a pace and schedule set by the RealtorÂ®.â€ť
The certificationâ€™s release coincides with the launch of a new online platform called the Center for RealtorÂ®Â Development, www.onlinelearning.realtor. The distinct online platform of activities is devoted to lifelong learning, career advancement and specialized credentials. The site serves as the course portal for 13 of NARâ€™s certifications and designations. The educational offerings on the site provide RealtorsÂ®Â with the expertise they need to build their businesses, better serve clients and differentiate themselves in a competitive marketplace.
RealtorsÂ® can learn more about the requirements to earn the PSA certification at pricingstrategyadvisor.org/.
Throughout this year, the Center for RealtorÂ®Â Development will continue to roll out additional, high-quality coursework and products while also embracing contemporary, innovative media formats, including the launch of a new RealtorÂ®Â Code of Ethics experience, where users can take interactive quizzes and gain access to new written and video content. A new one-day course, Working with Investors/Becoming an Investor, will also soon be offered, which will provide tips and advice for buying real estate investment properties.
