Seminar: Everything You Need to Know About Residential Permitting

This seminar is everything you wanted to know about residential permitting but was afraid to ask.

Have your clients ever asked any of the following?

  • Do I need a permit to add a new deck?
  • Did the previous owners fully permit their plumbing update with a licensed professional?
  • Are there open permits that could be a major problem down the road?
  • Is there a chance of converting the garage into living space, or adding a granny flat in the back?

REALTORS® like you are asked these questions on a regular basis. The answers are, unfortunately, not always easy to find and sometimes vary significantly depending on where a property is located and what site-specific zoning restrictions apply.

But you shouldn’t have to settle for telling your clients, “I don’t know” when they ask you permitting questions. In order to be the most effective representative for your clients, you need to know how to connect them with the permitting information they need about their homes. ABoR is partnering with the City of Austin to help you get there.

You’re invited to learn about residential permitting in Austin on Tuesday, February 27, 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. at ABoR HQ. Learn more and register here.

An Austin City Staff representative from the permitting shop will discuss the basics of residential permitting and offer REALTORS® an opportunity for Q&A.

How CodeNext Fits in the Picture

As you may know, the City of Austin is in the process of rewriting its Land Development Code for the first time in over 30 years. In addition to following CodeNEXT closely, we put together a short video that explains CodeNEXT and why it is so important for REALTORS®.

View the video.

Stay tuned for further communications on CodeNEXT, and remember to join us on February 27 for a crash course on residential permits.
