Becoming a real estate agent is easy. Here’s how to do it:

Sign up for classes

You have to take the first step, which is signing up for classes. With the pandemic changing so many things in our world, you can now take real estate classes online, which is what I did.

Decide if you would prefer to take in-person classes, or online classes. In September 2020 when I first started my classes, the only option I had was online classes, which was completely fine with me.

So decide between in-person or online. Which option saves you more time? Which option makes more sense? Do you learn better in-person or online?

These are the questions you need to ask yourself.

Take the classes

After deciding your class style, now you get busy taking classes and accomplishing your 40 hours (you need 40 hours of real estate classes in order to move on).

Here are the topics covered in the real estate course:

  1. The Basics
  2. Property Rights
  3. Interests in Real Estate
  4. Limitations on Property Rights
  5. Property Valuation
  6. Contracts
