There has been a lot of interest in the HUD 203K program lately and there are courses out there that will help you become a consultant.
If anyone is interested I will teach a FREE class on the 203K, especially how to estimate properly.
If anyone ia interested let me know and I will give you the benefit of what you need to know, a copy of my accepted HUD 203K application and a review on the 3 software programs I have used with the pros and cons.
Free is the best way to start and if you feel the need you can always purchase the education from other service providers.
I can also tell you how many 203K loans are made in your area, for example if you live somewhere and your area has 3 consultants but only had 9 loans over the year that means 9 loans split among 3 consultants and you, the new guy has to steal that business.
For some of you buying the classes may be best but for most inspectors I think check out the territory first and then make your move.
Regardless, I am a good consultant and would gladly share what I know and then also for free you can join my linkedin group and access the library.
Pay it forward.
