Getting involved with real estate in Florida is one of the smartest things that you can do for yourself. It is a very profitable business and it can really change your whole life. I got my real estate license and it is still the best choice I’ve made to date. Some of the things that you might get out of being a realtor include
-potential to make more money
-getting to pick and choose when you work
-comfort of working from your home at times
-chance to even be your own boss
-and many more things
Chances are you are going to be starting in a firm but you always have the chance to move up in the rankings and doesn’t take that long either. The markets in Florida have been getting better and better and it is a great time for you to hop on the bandwagon.
Now there are a few ways to go about getting your online real estate license. There is always the traditional, sit through a class and actually have to go to a physical location. Then there is the (in my opinion) much better choice, and that is working online and getting your license right from your couch.
I got my license online and it was one of the best choices I ever made. Going the online route is amazing because chances are good you already have other responsibilities to take care of such as a family, job and other hobbies. Getting your license online allows you to go at your own pace, and set your own hours.
There are so many different online schools out there for you to pick and choose from. Each of which brings something different to the table. I did tons of research before I made my choice and I really hope that this little article helps you decide what is going to help you out the most.
Before I talk about the actual schools and why you should consider going with them, I think it is really important to go over some of the background and make sure you know exactly what you are looking for when it comes to an online real estate school. Chances are you are going to be spending a lot of money and using a lot of your time to get your license so it only makes sense that you find the best school for you.
The first step, although it seems very obvious is making sure the program you are thinking about using is actually legit and creditable. So many schools out there aren’t approved and you are going to be way out of luck if you spend all that time for nothing.
The end goal is to make sure you are going to be able to pass your state test in Florida. It is important to find a company that is certified and ready to help you get ready for that big test. You can either email them to see identification if it isn’t already on their site somewhere.
The next thing that I suggest you look at is to see how much these schools offer for you. Sometimes people want more than just the basic training. For example, you might be interested in home inspections. Making sure you find a program that has everything you need is going to be very important and vital for your success.
More than just the test-
I liked programs that helped me with more than just taking the test. There are companies out there that help you find the best place to take the test, and keep in touch with you so they know you are doing good. The more personal the company is the better chance you are going to succeed. This is really going to help you find a job after as well. The people that run these schools are very qualified and have a lot of word in the real estate business. I highly suggest that you stay as close with them as possible.
I think that’s a good start for background information. I think we can finally move on to talking about the actual schools themselves. You should learn more as we move along but I wanted to give you a heads up for what you should be looking for.
The first school I want to talk about is the school that I personally used myself.
Real Estate Express-
I found this to be one of the better options by far. It is available in many different states and has a lot of success. Now, a lot of these schools are still very outdated and have a lot of problems, but this is what we are stuck to work with.
I found real Estate Express to have the least problems.
So the biggest thing that I liked about real Estate Express is the option to work with your personal instructor over the phone. Almost all of the other school’s out there only offer email support. I’m gonna be straight up. The information can get boring and even very hard to comprehend. That is why I find it very important to have the option to actually talk with a real human over the phone.
Email support can take a really long time and tends to be unreliable.
I also like that they offer a demo. You can basically see everything that you are going to be getting out of the course for free. Demos are really good because it helps you decide if the course is in the right format for you.
The high pass rate-
Another number that really sticks out to me when I am looking at online real estate schools is the pass rate. Nobody is out here trying to spend a ton of money and then end up failing. Real Estate Express has one of highest that I’ve seen coming in at about 80%. That is probably the highest and I passed very easily.
I really like that real Estate Express stands by their product so much that they offer money back if you don’t pass. This made me feel really good about their product and it was a very low risk thing for me.
Overall, Real Estate Express is still probably my top pick and I really think you are going to like it if you decide to go this route.
Career Web School-
I do want to cover a few other options that I researched and looked into so that you have some other schools to pick from in case you aren’t a big fan of Real Estate Express. I’ve heard a ton of positive things about Career Web School and I think you can really succeed.
One of the things that stood out to me about Career Webschool was tuition assistance. This basically means that they are going to help you come up with a payment plan. Some of these schools are really expensive and put a huge dent in your bank account. You should never let the overall price of the school scare you off. I personally didn’t use Career Web School to get my license online but talked to a ton of people that did and everyone loved it.
One of the things that I didn’t like however was the support with your personal instructor. With Career Web School you can only contact your instructor over email. Only having email support can be really hard to get anything done because it’s hard to communicate. If you’re very independent and don’t really need to work/talk with others this might be the school for you. Personally for me, i liked being able to talk to someone over the phone and it helped clarify a lot of information for me.
You can also get a demo if you decide that you want to try out Career Web School. Even if you don’t think you want to, I suggest that you get the demo. You might find something that you really like about the program.
The last school I would like to wrap up with is Kaplan. Kaplan is a good choice as well and I think they bring a good amount to the table.
Kaplan is a very popular option among many because it has been around for so long. It brings a lot of good qualities to the table. I found that it was very similar to career web school from the people that i talked to and researched.
You can get a payment plan here, so if you are worried about having to pay a ton for the course, take a deep breathe and relax, they are going to work with you to make sure that you guys find something that works out good for both sides. I really like that they are willing to work with the customer because it shows that they truly care.
One thing that I wasn’t a fan of like career web school was only being able to contact your personal instructor over email. Like I talked about before, sometimes it can be very beneficial to talk to someone over the phone and it helps you to understand better.
Kaplan is approved in the state of Florida and it is a good option to go with if you are interested in getting your real estate license online. Like Career Web School, you can also get a demo if you are interested. I am big with demos because you can really see if it is going to be right for you.
It is really important that you spend a good amount of time so that you can make sure you are ready to spend the time and money to get your real estate license. You have to know that it isn’t for everyone. However, the benefits once you get through it all are through the roof.
There are so many details that go into an online real estate school and it requires more research than just reading what I wrote. I really hope I started to lead you in the right direction though. The more research that you do the better off you are going to be. Since you are going to be spending 150+ hours getting your license, I suggest you read as much as possible.
Thanks for taking the time to read my review on the best real estate schools in Florida. Although some need some work, I am sure you will be able to find one that works good for you.
Good luck on your real estate journey!
