BCREA has created a new self-paced online course, Manufactured Homes: What REALTORS® Need to Know 2.0, which equips REALTORS® with proper foundations on the definitions, legislation, and requirements for manufactured homes.  

This new and improved 2.0 release replaces the previous version of the course with updated content and more extensive development on key issues. Manufactured Homes: What REALTORS® Need to Know 2.0 focuses on diverse topics related to exemptions and regulations for manufactured homes including: 

  • Manufactured Homes Act, BC Safety Standards Act and the Electrical Safety Regulation, 
  • electrical compliance and certification marks such as CSA stickers and Silver labels, 
  • basics of the Manufactured Homes Registry, 
  • the specifics of dealing with homes located on rented or leased pads, transporting a manufactured home to a different location, and insurance. 

(BCREA Access Login Required) 

By the end of this course, REALTORS® will be able to identify challenges with buying or selling manufactured homes (including mobile and modular houses), will be more familiar with the regulations and protocols when listing them, and will easily identify what to look for when alterations and additions are made to the manufactured home.  

This course, worth two accredited PDP hours, is an introductory course for new REALTORS® who want to expand their knowledge of this important area of legislation and practice, as well as experienced REALTORS® who want to update their foundations related to manufactured homes in British Columbia.
