This course provides information for real estate licensees who broker land, who plan to invest in land, or who plan to buy and develop land. The course discusses the land and its uses, laws affecting the use of land—including environmental laws, urban growth, required disclosures, and how all these issues affect real estate business practices.
At the end of this course, participants will be able to:
- Predict land use demand and the highest and best use of land.

Students will also have access to references, a glossary, Red Flag issues and resources and information is available in the Appendix of the course. Disclosure is also introduced as it relates to the topics covered.
