Workshops offered for historic property buyers

May. 03, 2013 @ 08:11 AM

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — Real estate professionals interested in historic properties in West Virginia have the chance to learn more during three state-sponsored training sessions.

The State Historic Preservation Office is conducting eight-hour training sessions. The first will be held Friday at West Virginia Northern Community College in Wheeling. Another session is set for Saturday at the Berkeley County Council Chambers in Martinsburg, and the third will be held Monday at the Darden House in Elkins.

Among the topics to be discussed will be sustainability and green energy, architectural styles, and financial incentives available to owners of historic properties.

Participants will earn seven hours of continuing education credit from the West Virginia Real Estate Commission.
