How To Get Real Estate License
Real estate is one of those chosen professions that when times are good, so is the money. But when times are bad licensed realtors and agents spend a lot of time looking up at the dark clouds drifting by, wondering when the blue skies and green lights will come back. Getting a real estate license in your state is not an overpowering task of your mental acuteness, but it will take plenty of effort and skills to master the trade and make the "big bucks."
Your first step in getting licensed can be two-fold. Contact your state real estate commission to get up-to-date information on the best real estate schools and licensing costs. Then contact at least two of the state approved real estate schools to find out what courses are offered, how long it will take to reach the licensing stage, where the schools are located, and, of course, the cost to enroll. You can do all this online.
Most schools have all the similar questions and answers and will provide them during your "faux testing" to make sure you get it right. Not many fail the final state exam.
Oh, keep in mind that in some states you must be at least 18 or 21 and a high school graduate. Note: once licensed, join a high-profile company, and become a "listing" specialist; this is where the money is.
