Do you know what? I've got something to tell you. Most of my friends have just come off of making a lot of money in the real estate market and I did not get in on it at all. But all that's about to change for both me and you. The last ten years have seen house prices go from affordable to sky high in more markets than I care to name (California, we're looking at you). In fact, with the recent high priced shake out, there is no better time than now to learn about what real estate school can do for both you and your career. Heck, with all the money flowing both in and out of the real estate market every day, there's bound to be a place for you.
1) Look for credentials. You'll see them around if you look hard enough "You can buy a real estate license. Today, special price for you $ 299. Just send the check to this agent in the British Virgin Islands." There are more scams out there than I can shake a stick at and these people will be more than happy to take your money from you. We've all seen 'em. Stick with a school that looks reputable and you should be all set.
2) Decide if it's worth the investment. Are you looking to do this as a career or are you looking to do this as a part time job. I do not know about you, but I have not seen too many things that I'd classify as actually being part time. Most everything takes time energy and will power to put into it. If you are really gonna drop the money in something like this, make sure it's what you really want to do. Like everything else, it might be years before you see any real money out of it, so make sure it's for you.
3) Be realistic. Do you live in Nevada? If so, get licensed in Nevada, not Kansas. You've been surprised how many people are looking for real estate schools in states in which they do not hide because they are thinking of moving there. Do it once, pass the exam, and start your career in real estate in the state where you live. It's that simple.
This is just the tip of the iceberg! We've got a lot more where this came from. Stop by our real estate school site today to take a look at the different types of real estate school resources, articles, and information.
