NAR Classes Boost Community Program Knowledge

NAR’s Community & Political Affairs division offers three classes to help you improve your community and your business. The class offerings include: Employer-Assisted Housing, Expanding Housing opportunities, and Smart Growth.

The class sessions are held by authorized state and local associations, and they are also offered each year at two of NAR’s national meetings: the Midyear Meetings & Trade Expo (held each spring) and the REALTORS® Conference & Expo (held each fall).

Learn more about the course details and how to sign-up below.

Expanding Housing Opportunities (EHO)

This course is designed to increase participants’ understanding of how affordability bolsters the housing market, engages clients, and builds business as well as the community. Students will learn to better leverage partnerships and resources to expand housing opportunities.

See schedule of upcoming EHO classes.

Smart Growth for the 21st Century

This course is designed to help REALTORS® understand the concept of smart growth and some of the economic and demographic drivers that make homebuyers in particular age cohorts particularly interested in communities with developed with smart growth characteristics.

Employer-Assisted Housing (EAH)

Learn how to work with local employers to discuss employer-assisted housing, EAH’s benefits (to the employer, community and REALTOR®) and three options (homebuyer and homeownership education, counseling and financial assistance) employers can implement to help their employees become homeowners or afford a home close to work.
