Are you interested in getting your Washington real estate license? Do you love working with people and setting your own hours? Well then, a career in real estate may be just what you need! But, there is always a but, before you can ever begin selling real estate, you will need to get a real estate license. This is mandatory for everyone, in every state by every Real Estate Commission and Department of Licensing, there is no way around it. The good news however, is that getting licensed isn’t as difficult as most of our students tend to expect, in fact for the most part, you will simply need to complete the required real estate training courses which you can find below!
Convenience - Online courses allow you the convenience of studying from anywhere and at any time that works best with your schedule. Study from a coffee shop, your living room or while at work, it is completely up to you!
Affordable - Online courses are, in some cases, up to a third of the price of their more traditional counterparts. Thanks to a much lower overhead, an online school is able to pass those savings on to you.
Faster - Why wait for a teachers schedule or to attend a class once a week when you can work at your own pace whenever the time is right for you. Students in online courses tend to finish much faster when their schedule is under their control.
The Washington Real Estate Commission has given applicants some options in terms of how they receive their educational credits. Those being online courses or attending courses at a real estate school, college or university in your area. While we would love to say that the best option is an online course, because that is how we make our money, we simply can’t do that. Online courses just aren’t for everyone. Some people learn and absorb information much better in a classroom environment with other students to bounce ideas off of, while others prefer the convenience and ease of completing their courses online.
The type of course that you choose is entirely up to you. The only thing that you really need to worry yourself about is that the course provider you choose is accredited. This is very important to remember, because if the provider is not accredited you may not be able to apply the credits you receive towards your licensing requirements. Speaking of requirements, we encourage you take a moment to visit our Washington real estate license requirements page to get yourself up-to-speed with what will be expected of you throughout the licensing process.
In addition to the course requirements, you will also be required to complete the two part (State and National), Washington real estate exam. As you may have noticed above, we are currently offering an Exam Prep Masters course for the State of Washington. While not a mandatory course, it can certainly help prepare you for the examination. This course is particularly useful for those that tend to have trouble with tests, nerves and so forth. Even if you aren’t quite sure, we encourage you to at least take look at the course and then decide if you think it is right for you.
Regardless of which courses you choose or which school you decide to attend, we are very thankful that you stopped by today and look forward to helping you build a brighter future!
