Tennessee Preservation Trust

Realtors Historic Preservation 101 Course:

At the 2012 TPT statewide preservation conference, TPT offered a 6-hour state accredited realtor education course that was so well received we’ve decided to offer it throughout the state!

It has been estimated that restoration’s market share growth will exceed 80% of the entire U.S. Construction economy in the near future. As the country begins to explore sustainability, both in terms of the economy and the environment, buying and selling existing buildings, rather than developable lots, will increasingly become any realtor’s main bread-and-butter. Historic properties are valuable to potential buyers because of their existing infrastructure and in numerous other ways; such as stable property values; aesthetically pleasing neighborhoods; and materials, construction and design that cannot affordably be reproduced today. Learn more about how historic properties can help increase your income at the “Historic Preservation 101 for Tennessee Realtors” course.

Course objectives are to:

  • Learn about historic designation and the additional value historic properties provide
  • Explore the rules and regulations associated with historic zoning
  • Identify common Tennessee architectural styles
  • Discover how preservation is sustainable and green
  • Uncover common myths about old buildings
  • Learn valuable techniques for selling older buildings

All trainers meet the National Park Service’s Professional Qualifications Standards and have years of preservation experience.
