Realtors® Helping Military Members Come Home

by User Not Found | Jun 29, 2017

With Fourth of July celebrations around the corner, the Realtors® Association of the Palm Beaches would like to take this opportunity to thank military members for their service by helping them come home. During a military relocation, the services of a real estate professional who understands their needs and timetables can make the transfer easier, faster, and less stressful. 

To aid service men, women, and families in their transitions, we are hosting a Military Relocation Professional (MRP) course to certify more Realtors® in serving those who serve our country. On Thursday, July 13th at our Corporate Headquarters in West Palm Beach, we will focus on educating real estate professionals about working with current and former military service members to find housing solutions that best suit their needs and take full advantage of their military benefits and support.

Realtors® who earn the MRP understand: 
  • How service members can use their monthly basic allowance for housing (BAH) payment for privatized or private-sector housing
  • Processes and procedures involved in a permanent change of station
  • How transactions for relocating military service members are unique — e.g., compressed time frame if the service member is deployed
  • How to help through a rent or buy/sell decision-making process
  • How to leverage VA financing and entitlement benefits when purchasing
For Realtors®:
