Columbus, OH (PRWEB) – July 20, 2015

As of October 3, new Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) regulations will change the way real estate professionals write closing contracts and do business. Real estate agents, appraisers and title insurance agents can learn everything they need to know about the new rules at Hondros College “ABCs of CFPB” seminar on July 31 from 9 a.m. to noon.

Three industry veterans will conduct in-depth training for three hours of continuing education credit at the panel discussion on the Hondros campus at 4140 Executive Parkway in Westerville. The continuing education credits are approved for real estate, appraisal, insurance and title insurance.

“The CFPB changes will require change across multiple disciplines in the real estate industry, from appraisers to mortgage bankers to real estate agents,” says Kevin McClure, CEO, Arizona School of Real Estate and Business. “Events like this panel discussion offer real estate professionals the opportunity to stay ahead of industry changes and maintain a competitive edge.”

The expert panel will discuss the new closing process, how to best communicate it to buyers and sellers, the new AAR form and more. Panelists include:
