2011 brought us a 20 day shutdown of the Minnesota state government. Not surprising, this post was read most during the July 1 – July 20 shutdown, but was still one of the most read posts of the year.
The Minnesota Department of Commerce regulates real estate and appraisal licensing in the state. During the shutdown, new licenses were not granted and both licensing and continuing education programs for real estate appraisal were not approved. For those of you who have a real estate or appraisal license in Minnesota, you may be intersted to know that many of the education programs – both professional development and academic offered through the real estate programs at St. Thomas are approved for continuing education credit.
