Building affordable housing is not particularly affordable. Costs of construction usually far exceed the revenues generated by rents. Without utilizing highly complex financing tools, often from multiple sources, for developing, preserving, and operating affordable apartments, building affordable housing is often impossible. This topic will help you understand how to effectively utilize available financing tools to develop quality housing for low-income residents. The material also explains the myriad of financing tools available for affordable housing and the complex application procedures for these funding sources. This information is essential for anyone involved in the development or operation of affordable housing and will enhance one's understanding of affordable housing financing tools and the benefits and challenges of each.
Understand the concepts and organization underlying residential and commercial real estate transaction documents.Residential and commercial real estate transactions are built upon the documents which lay out the terms and conditions for those transactions. In order to be effective, those documents must contain clearly articulated concepts and be organized so the parties to the transactions, and sometimes finders-of-fact (that is, judges and juries), can interpret those documents. It is a best practice if real estate transaction documents are designed and constructed from a proactive risk management perspective, using checklists to ensure the relevant substantive and procedural matters are addressed and not inadvertently dropped. This topic is intended to help real estate professionals such as developers, owners, property managers, engineers, surveyors, contractors, and attorneys understand how to prepare and review real estate documents in a variety of settings such as purchase and sale transactions, leases, development projects, shared ownership/management/cost-sharing arrangements (condominiums, cooperatives, owner associations), and mortgage financings.
