Staying up to date on the law is vital to your career. First-time homebuyers are new to the real estate game completely, and people selling their homes may not have given real estate a second thought for 20 or 30 years. The ability to discuss new legislation, speak plainly with hesitant consumers, and thoroughly understand how state and local laws affect the industry impacts how you think, act, and speak about real estate, no matter the consumers’ level of experience.


This course covers recent Maryland laws and amendments that passed in the 2020 and 2021 legislative sessions, and pays particular attention to laws that relate to the real estate industry and your everyday real estate practice, ensuring that your knowledge of the law is as up-to-date as possible, and that you’re equipped to identify how new legislation can benefit your clients and customers.
