This course will discuss all the factors that go into a senior living community: from how to get your property to qualify as housing for older persons (HOPA) under HUD rules; to how to structure your payment systems; to the amenities necessary to enhance the daily lives and overall living experience of the tenants.

With the high demand for senior housing, this session will answer many of your real-world questions about this expanding market. Additionally, learn how government agencies operate in this sector and what will be necessary if you intend to provide government-subsidized or rent-controlled services.

  • Discover what amenities are considered most important to seniors, especially those who are planning to move to a retirement community

  • Understand the legal and practical basis for making room for pets: common misconceptions, and what the Fair Housing Act considers “reasonable accommodations” for seniors with service or companion animals

Most recently, he has been a consultant to the State of South Dakota. In this assignment he has developed a fair housing awareness program that is one of the first of its kind in the nation. It involves a three pronged approach to fair housing awareness.
