About this Course

This course provides a comprehensive introduction to real estate finance and fulfills Texas pre-license educational requirements.

You'll learn about the types of mortgages that are available, from conforming and non-conforming conventional loans to Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) and more. We'll explore FHA and VA loans, as well. You'll learn the advantages and disadvantages of each loan type.

You'll find out the financial qualifications lenders evaluate to assess the risk of making a loan, including the borrower's income, credit, debt, source of funds, and net worth. We'll also explain in-depth how lenders qualify property for a loan through a thorough and accurate property valuation.

Then we'll turn to the closing process. You'll discover the customary costs involved, the way some items are prorated between buyer and seller, and the requirements established by the Real Estate Settlement and Procedures Act (RESPA).

Finally, we'll explain what happens when a borrower defaults on the mortgage contracts. You'll learn about the process of foreclosure and the ways foreclosure can be prevented through forbearance, moratoriums, and recasting.


Note: The course itself is delivered via PDF, while the exam will need to be taken online.
