How Do I Get My Real Estate License?
Obtaining a real estate license in Florida is not difficult if you know what to expect and can fulfill the requirements.
It is important that you know that obtaining your real estate license is not solely about taking the real estate exam. The following should help you better understand and prepare properly for the State Exam.
Q. “I saw a competitor’s site refer to a real estate license that is good throughout the USA. Is that true?”
A. NO. There is no such thing as a National real estate license. Each state has adopted and enforces its own real estate laws and regulations regarding the practice of real estate licensing, for the general purpose of protecting the consumer. So you must study for and pass your state’s real estate license specifically.
Q. “I heard that there is a site that offers practice exams called a ‘typical’ real estate license. Is this true?”
A. NO. While real estate practice exams in general are extremely beneficial, there is no such thing as a “typical” real estate license.
Q. I heard that it is impossible to pass the Real Estate exam the first time, is that true?
A: No. Research shows that once you have taken your Pre-License course, the best way to help ensure that you’ll pass your licensing exam the first time out, is to practice taking similar exams for many days in advance.
Q. “I found a site that offers practice Q & As for all 50 states, but they don’t say anything about state-required real estate Pre License courses. Can I just buy these practice exams, and then go take my real estate license exam?”
A. NO. Florida requires that you complete some form of real estate Pre License course, and demonstrate the successful completion of that course and the minimum number of training hours, before you can schedule your real estate license exam. Florida permits you to take this course not only online, like here at RSVP School of Real Estate, but also in live classrooms
The Process of Getting Your License
How you get a real estate license involves minimum age requirements, certain education and/or experience requirements, applications and fees, and other state-specific details. So you must be sure that you know the relevant information from Florida before you get too involved in preparing for your real estate exam.
