Maryland Residential Property Management Certification Free Education Program
As housing prices increase, the number of renters in Maryland also increases. Studies show that more than one-third of Marylanders rent their homes. With an increased number of rental properties comes an increased demand for skilled professionals to manage rental properties.Maryland REALTORS® is thrilled to launch the Maryland Residential Property Management Certification (MRPMC).
MRPMC is a certification available to Maryland REALTORS® members designed to educate practitioners on the common issues surrounding property management. Many licensees venture into the field of property management without the foundational knowledge required to be successful. Licensees should stay informed in order to stay out of trouble. In fact, a high percentage of complaints filed with the Maryland Real Estate Commission involve some area of property management.
Obtaining your MRPMC certification will enhance your understanding of the legal and practical issues you may face as a property manager while offering effective strategies for managing any risks. MRPMC certification training covers the following topics: addressing common issues faced by property managers, forming a property management company (outside of a brokerage), understanding the lease and related documents, and analyzing fair housing issues specific to property management.
Develop your knowledge and expertise to serve this important and growing industry by taking steps to become a MRPMC.
