S.E.C. Education Foundation News

Winter has arrived, and 2017 is coming to a close. We are working on our schedule for education for 2018 and beyond, and will keep you updated as we confirm the courses.

The Society of Exchange Counselors has scheduled the following education program for our meeting in Costa Mesa, California, and I hope you can join us on January 21, 2018, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. to Build Investment Models for Your Client Using Excel, which will be presented by Joseph Larkin, CCIM.  This one-day workshop is designed for seasoned real estate professionals who would like to refine their investment analysis skills by incorporating Excel. The workshop will review real estate investment analysis using the DCF model, advanced capitalization techniques, net asset value, the impact of financing on the real estate decision, and the 1031 transaction and its impact to substitute basis.   This advanced workshop requires the participant to have knowledge and understanding of discounting cash flow analysis as well as a working understanding of Excel. A laptop computer with a full version of Excel is required for this workshop. There are pre-study videos that are required to be viewed prior to the start of the workshop. In addition, the participant will be required to download files prior to the workshop.  The time required prior to attendance at the workshop is approximately 15 minutes.

We have scheduled Peter West, S.E.C., CCIM to present Creating Powerful Transactions That Close, on March 18, 2018, in Minneapolis, Minnesota; and Gary Vandenberg, S.E.C., CCIM will present Exchange Magic, on November 11, 2018, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  We have also scheduled our invitation-only Moderator Course for May, in Greenville, South Carolina.  The educational classes for the upcoming S.E.C. meetings are posted on the S.E.C. Observer Upcoming Events webpage as we confirm them. We are working to schedule education courses in regions where we will host S.E.C. meetings next year. Our goal is to have an education session locally several months prior to our meetings to expand our presence and identify local people who may be potential guests.

We look forward to expanding our reach to new marketing groups, professional organizations, and individuals who are interested in bringing the best creative real estate education to their regions.
