Free Breakfast and 2.5 Hours of Continuing Education for MN Real Estate Agents

Team DesMarais invites Minnesota real estate agents to join them for breakfast and two-and-a-half hours of CE Credit. Veteran home inspector Reuben Saltzman skips the good and gets right to the bad and the ugly;  photos of some of the worst that an inspection can reveal, what things sellers should and should not repair, and methods of drafting inspection language that ensures repairs are completed correctly.  Topics will include:

  • Negotiations after the inspection
  • Problems with ‘flipped’ houses
  • What’s the big deal about a cracked heat exchanger?
  • Furnace certification / safety check / service call… what’s the difference?
  • What’s the concern with double tapped circuit breakers, really?
  • Federal Pacific Electric panels
  • Aluminum Wiring
  • How to spot a buried fuel oil tank
  • Ice dam myths
  • Top deck defects
  • Stone veneer siding, the new stucco?
  • New construction defects

Breakfast will be provided and there is ample parking on-site. Everything starts at 7:30 am.

    Can we look forward to future articles about the ice dam myths, new construction defects, and double tapped breakers? It seems it would be an interesting read.

    Hi Bruce,

    I’ve written blog posts on all of those articles; I’m pulling content from blog posts that I’ve already written to give this class. For example, here are several posts on new construction defects. For a full list of blog topics, go to the blog page and click on the dropdown menu under “TOPICS”.
