Rural Real Estate Essentials is a new online course offered by BCREA, aimed to help BC REALTORS® expand their reach to rural areas. Promoting knowledge and business growth, the new course provides REALTORS® with foundational knowledge on rural real estate and helps reinforce and enhance the knowledge of REALTORS® already practicing in these areas.

Written by experts in the field (pun intended), Victor Khong and Michelle Wong, Rural Real Estate Essentials takes REALTORS® from BC’s concrete jungles to its more natural terrains and focuses on topics relevant to REALTORS®, buyers and sellers in rural areas.

The course covers numerous specialized topics that REALTORS® need to know when working in rural BC, including:

  • working with rural titles,
  • zoning and permitted land use,
  • riparian areas,
  • the Islands Trust,
  • owner-built homes,
  • insurance for rural properties,
  • and more!

By the end of this course, learners will be aware of the resources and tools used by rural REALTORS®, be privy to clauses used in rural real estate transaction documents, and know how to identify and manage risks associated with rural real estate.

Hosted on CREA’s training hub, the course is an accredited Professional Development Program (PDP) offering, which means REALTORS® in BC will earn three accredited PDP hours when they finish the course.
