WAUKESHA, Wis. — OnCourse Learning’s recently published “Real Estate Finance, 10th Edition,” by real estate legends J. Keith Baker and the late John P. Wiedemer, covers the most current developments in real estate finance.

“The updated edition reflects up-to-the-minute principles and practices of modern real estate finance resulting from the recent financial crisis, mortgage meltdown and prolonged road to recovery,” said Baker, a knowledge leader in the fields of real estate finance and mortgage banking.

Specialized mortgage lending procedures including sources of mortgage money, constraints on those sources, loan qualifications and laws and regulations that guide practices today are covered in the latest edition.

Specific topics include the lingering effects of Wall Street Reform and the Consumer Protection Act, the TILA-RESPA Integrated Disclosure rule and revisions that have occurred in the secondary mortgage market for mortgage-backed securities.

An easy-to-read narrative format provides an accessible introduction for the novice student, as well as an overview for experienced professionals.
