Imagine the scenario: a home buyer wants to find the perfect house, so they call a trusted REALTOR® to go look at some houses they picked out on the web. The REALTOR and buyer hop into the car and go house hunting. But each home they find, the buyer finds something wrong with it: old windows, peeling paint, 1980s decor, 25 year old furnace, rickety deck ... the list goes on. Maybe some of the homes are even HUD homes or other foreclosed properties. So each time, the buyer and REALTOR get back in the car, drive to the next house and do it all over again.

Realtor education is important to the housing market and to home buyers. The better informed the agent, the better the experience for buyers. The better the buying experience - and the more stable the buyer is with their choice - the better off the housing market is. This is why Realtors continue their education throughout their careers. It also happens to often be a requirement for Realtor boards, but agents we've talked to do it because they want to be the best.

It's a cold, hard fact of the housing market right now: vacant homes and foreclosures that need work. Whether it's a bank owned home or a Fannie Mae foreclosure, now listed as a HomePath Mortgage-eligible property, these homes are everywhere. They're not exaclty a "sexy sell" when it comes to showing them to home buyers. In fact, it's an issue we recently covered in Renovation Loans: Why Real Estate Agents Should Not Shy Away. Below is an excerpt.
