South Dakota: Small-acreage program for rural property brokers set for Jan. 31 in Rapid City
January 7, 2011
BROOKINGS, SD – The South Dakota Cooperative Extension Service will host an educational program for realtors who market rural properties on Jan. 31.
The program begins at 1 p.m. at the South Dakota State University West River Ag Center, 1905 Plaza Dr., Rapid City. The program costs $55 for those who register on or before Jan. 28, or $60 at the door. To register, call Carol Lawhun from the Rushmore School of Real Estate at 605-390-2338, or e-mail her at this address: caroll@PropertyByReferral.com.
The program offers 4.5 hours of approved continuing education credits through the South Dakota Real Estate Commission, two required credits and two and one-half elective credits. The seminar will focus on land-use planning, stocking rates for small acreages, the cost of feeding horses, and the weed laws of the region. The seminar will end at approximately 5 p.m. South Dakota Cooperative Extension Range Livestock Extension Associate Mindy Hubert said the event is a great way for realtors or others who market rural properties to get insight on a variety of considerations important to small-acreage ownership.
“We are excited about the content of this program, because it is very specific for realtors and others who work in rural property real estate,” Hubert said. “It’s a great way to help rural property brokers make informed recommendations to their clients, ultimately helping new landowners make informed decisions about their property.”
For other questions on the event, call Hubert at the West River Ag Center at 605-394-2236.
