The Institute of Estate Agents will be holding the next property update at Lookout Hill, Khayelitsha, in Cape Town.
Estate agents in the Western Cape region are invited and encouraged to attend an IEASA Property Update at Lookout Hill, Khayelitsha, together with an esteemed international delegation from National Association of Realtors (NAR), says Annette Evans, regional manager of IEASA, Western Cape.
This property update session will be held on the 10th August 2016 from 9:30am to 12:30pm at Lookout Hill, on the corner of Mew Way and Spine Road, Ilitha Park, Khayelitsha.
While the property update is free of charge, there is limited seating so agents are asked to book their space online as soon as possible. (No-shows, however, will be invoiced at R150 per person.)
Two and a half non-verifiable Continuous Professional Development (CPD) points will be issued via an e-certificate.
The programme for the morning is a full one, and agents will glean much information from attending this session, said Evans.
The event will include:
NAR president, Tom Salomone and NAR immediate past president Chris Polychon will discuss the importance of home ownership and US Fair Housing Laws.
The Estate Agency Affairs Board will touch base with the One-learner programme and updates.
Romeo Tsusi from the Cape Law Society will speak on title deeds and the process to property ownership.
Department of Human Settlements will discuss the Finance Linked Individual Subsidy Programme (FLISP), renting and buying and more about the assistance on offer to agents’ clients.
ABSA bank will share information on credit scoring and mortgage advice to offer clients.
Views from two agents working within emerging markets who will elaborate on franchises and an independent agency in terms of the benefits of a franchise compared to the benefits of having the independence of a self-run business.
“We are honoured to have a delegation from the US and grateful for the opportunity to network with them here in Cape Town,” said Evans.
