Free, Three Credit Class on Selling Historic Fort Collins Homes - December 7, 2015

Protect Our Old Town Homes is hosting a free, 3-credit class for Realtors on December 7th from 1 - 5pm. This class will provide local Realtors with three continuing education credits with the Colorado Division of Real Estate while exploring the unique issues related to selling historic homes in Fort Collins. Particular emphasis will be given to the processes and benefits of historic landmark designation so that Realtors will be able to clearly pass this information on to potential buyers.

 Topics to be covered include:
• The purpose behind historic designation and the related economic, environmental, and social benefits of designating properties
• The financial benefits of historic designation specific to the building owner
• An overview of Fort Collins’ historic neighborhoods
• Architectural styles in Fort Collins
• The review process for historic designation
• General maintenance for historic homes
• Researching historic homes

The class is free, but space is limited. This four-hour class will be held at First Bank, 100 S. College in the downstairs meeting room. Speakers include Historic Preservation staff with the City, a local building contractor who is familiar with working on older homes, and a local historian.

Sign up for the class through Eventbrite:
