Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, a leading provider of real estate services in Utah, announced today that Gerald Richards, sales associate in the company’s North Davis office, has completed the real estate industry’s most comprehensive training in the use of the U.S. Government’s FHA 203k Home Purchase and Renovation Loan program.
With this designation, Richards becomes a member of REbuildUSA, a nationwide organization of real estate, lending, and home improvement professionals that is dedicated to helping more Americans achieve the dream of home ownership, improving our communities and contributing to the health of our economy.
“My 203k Specialist training positions me to provide professional guidance to those who would like to locate a home in a great neighborhood to be renovated to meet their needs,” says Richards. “These are the homes offered at the most competitive prices. I can help my buyers more easily navigate the process of planning, securing loan approval and completing the home improvements.”
203k Specialists are also trained to bring a strong competitive advantage to home sellers by more effectively marketing their homes to a wider audience. The REbuildUSA List Assist program provides visualization tools and cost estimates, allowing prospective buyers to better recognize the value of an available property. The 203k Specialist can then help them put the power of the FHA 203k to work in purchasing and renovating the home.
Richards has been active in real estate sales for 19 years and works in the Davis and Weber County areas. He also holds the Residential Construction Certified, Real Estate Marketing Specialist, and Military Marketing Specialist designations.
Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage’s North Davis office is located at 1597 North Woodland Park Drive in Layton 801.774.1500. Richards may be reached directly at 801.540.3825 or via e-mail at Gerald.Richards@UtahHomes.com.
