WAUKESHA, Wis. — “California Real Estate Finance, 10th Edition,” by authors John Fesler and Mary Ellen Brady, is the latest OnCourse Learning title to provide current, concise and practical insight to the real estate financing arena.

Fesler and Brady have decades of experience in California’s real estate market.

This updated book includes the latest California Association of Realtors contracts, as well as CalBRE rules and regulations. Various sections of the book also have been changed to reflect the weight of topics on the licensing exam.

The growing role of government regulation and reliance on loan collateral, as well as the impact of these measures on the appraisal process, are addressed. The effect of borrower-qualifying requirements on real estate financing also is examined.

The text also includes the following topics:

  • Formation of the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau
  • CFPB rules, including the qualified mortgage
  • Loan Estimate and Closing Disclosure replacement of the GFE and HUD-1
  • Expanded 1031 tax deferred exchange information
  • Step-by-step loan process from application to loan closing
  • New loan options
