REALTOR® Marketing Advantages and Financial Incentives for Historic Residential Properties

This half-day workshop will assist REALTORS® marketing historic properties in identifying financial, tax, and regulatory incentives that can be used to offset rehabilitation and maintenance costs of historic homes – and can be used as an effective marketing tool.

Focused towards REALTORS®, case examples illustrate the incentives available at the state and local level, the associated eligibility requirements, and how to gain access to financial incentives for historic preservation. Speakers are program administrators, accounting professionals, and experienced preservation experts.
