If you are thinking about becoming a real estate agent in the state of Michigan then you came to the right place. You can simply sign up for a classroom based class if that is what you prefer. This article is for the people that might not like the classroom setting as much or are interested in possibly checking out the online route to get your license.
I am one of the people that don’t have as much time and need to go the online route. I really liked being able to work at my own pace and when I felt like it. As I am probably going to guess most people that read this article already have jobs or other responsibilities such as a family. When that is the class this is when going the online route might be the best solution for you.
There are so many different real estate courses out there that are going to be able to help you get the job done. I am only going to go over about 3 of the choices for the sake of time. I would say that these are the 3 best courses available and are really going to help take you to the next level when it comes to getting your license.
There’s a lot to learn about online real estate courses that you must know before we get into this article. I’m going to review all of the 3 courses that I liked but not until I cover some basic real estate ground that I think is going to help you out when reading all of my reviews.
Tip number 1
Most if not all of the courses out there for you to choose are very outdated and old. Although they are still certified by the state, you still need to know that some of the information may have changed or be different now. Just keep that in mind when you are completing the course or reading about some of my favorite choices.
You’re probably wondering to yourself how this even managed to happen and how they haven’t been updated. Well I wondered the same thing when I was completing and reviewing these courses.
When these courses came out, it was before there was any iPhone or tablet for purchase. That should give you a really good time frame as to what it was like when they were first released. Again this doesn’t mean they are bad or all of the information is wrong. It simply means they are slightly old. Chances are good that some of the textbooks that you have used have over the years have been outdated. It doesn’t mean they’re bad, just something to keep in mind.
Although I believe everyone of these courses needs to be updated or completely re completed, we aren’t going to get that lucky. So because of that, we have to work with what we have, and that is the outdated programs.
There are so many courses out there that are simply not good choices and really bad. I highly suggest you look into them as much as possible to make sure you are getting your money’s worth. I hope that after reading this little article you get a good idea as to what exactly you should be looking for when it comes to an online real estate course in Michigan.
The 3 best courses that I believe take over the state of Michigan
There are many courses and classes out there that I believe are really good quality and are going to help you get your license, but again, just going to cover 3 of the main ones.
There is one licensing company that is going to certify all of the courses is the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. Their website isn’t overly helpful in telling you what courses are good and approved so you kind of need to do the work on your own to figure it out. There are more than 15 classes that are approved in the state so you have many options to pick from.
Like I said I can’t go into major detail on all of them so I’m going with my top 3.
1. Real Estate Express
The first class or course that I want to talk about is Real Estate Express.
I actually went through this course myself unlike the other ones in which I just read about so I probably know the most about this one. Real Estate Express is the real deal. Although it was still out of date it was still really solid and I was very happy with my overall experience.
I think it is probably the best online course available and you should definitely think about going this route.
With real Estate Express you can get textbooks to help you study in person. This was really helpful to me because I was more of an in person, old fashion book study. It was really easy to highlight key information and create notes for myself.
I know it is early in the process but I’m gonna jump right to the point. I decided to go with Real Estate Express because of the super high pass rate. I didn’t want to spend a ton of my hard earned money to go off and fail the course. I wanted a program that was going to help me actually get my
All in all I had a really positive experience with real Estate Express and think it was really easy to work with as long as you put the time into it. I would highly recommend that you check out real Estate Express. Although I am still going to review additional programs, I had a really good positive experience with them. I can say first hand they have good information and help get the job done.
Moving on to the next program that I want to talk about
2. Brightwood Education by Kaplan
This is another online course that has an amazing pass rate. I was really big on finding a company that was going to be able to help me succeed and actually put my money towards something.
I really liked the idea of going with Kaplan because of how much they care about their students. They are more personal with their students than real Estate Express and make sure that they are getting all of the help that they need. They have many physical locations as well and make sure that you are always getting what you need.
They have tuition plans if you can’t pay all of the money up front which can be really helpful for some. Don’t let the money scare you away from getting your online real estate license. There are many ways around it such as a payment plan.
The only negative factor, I guess you could call it, is that it is probably the most expensive school that I found and you’re really gonna have to put down some serious money. However they are also one of the beet options available and make sure that you are going to succeed.
Definitely worth spending some time and check out Kaplan if I were you.
3. Career Web School
The last school I’m going to talk about is Career Web School.
Definitely not one of my top choices as far as classes that help you get your real estate license. Again I don’t think there is a ton of quality out there so I decided to add it in case you don’t like my first two options.
They’ve been around for years and are probably the most recognizable out of all the courses. They have a pretty good pass fail ratio and make sure that you are getting exactly what it takes.
The weird thing about Career Webschool is that it is probably the most modern out of all of the courses out there. Definitely something interesting to keep in the back of your head.
Wrapping up all of my thoughts on the online real estate courses in Michigan
Although I found these courses to be the top 3 for me that doesn’t mean they are going to be the best for you. I highly suggest that you go and check out all of the options out there and read up to make sure you are 100% comfortable with the choice you end up making.
Some of the reviews out there are really bad and people have gone through all sorts of different experiences with them. That is why I suggest that you check our multiple reviews and compare to make sure you are getting the most accurate information out there.
The more reviews you read the more you are going to learn about these courses and it is going to help you make the best choice possible.
I really hope this helped you learn about some of the best real estate courses out there for you.
Thanks for reading and good luck!
