Online course reviews
It is rather easy to get yourself involved with a Pennsylvania real estate course. The state has approved many different courses that will allow you to study for your real estate exam. As long as you find a course that is certified by the state, then you will be good to go. However, since there are so many different courses available, it can be rather challenging to find the course that is going to fit you the best. That is where this article should come in handy for you. You might be more comfortable taking your real estate exam in a classroom setting, but chances are good you are going to want to take the new route and complete your course online. I got my real estate license online so I have a lot of knowledge when it comes to this topic. I hope I am able to pass along all of the information needed to help you find the best course for you.
Before we get into the actual reviews, we need to go over some much need background when looking at the online real estate industry as a whole.
The thing I want to talk about is going to be the problem with all of these courses. It seems as though there wouldn’t be a single issue with an online course with the world we live in now, however that isn’t the case.
While it seems as though taking an online real estate course would be a newer concept, it’s actually not. Some of these courses have been around for 20+ years. Right when the state allowed online courses to teach the students, a giant heard of schools all rode up. Everyone in the industry wanted in on the online real estate.
The problem with these courses is that some of them haven’t been updated in over 20 years. Cell phones weren’t around when most of these courses were released, but most of them have tried to adjust to the modern day style and made their courses available for phone use. I personally think it is only possible to take an online class on the computer. I would love to use this course on the go on my tablet and cell phone but that isn’t the case.
The course content isn’t very updated as well and I believe that is completely on the programs because they could easily spend the time to upgrade their services but choose not to. In 20 years real estate has changed a ton and it’s annoying that they refuse to update their courses.
I believe that is enough of the context of what you need to know when looking at the differences in the online real estate programs in the state of pennsylvania. Now I think it is time that we move forward and talk about some of the specific programs you can look towards.
The first of the courses that I would like to talk about as far as online real estate courses in pennsylvania go is real estate express.
I personally used real estate express to get license so I have a ton of first hand information on the program and I should be able to pass along some useful information. I didn’t use any of the other programs but I have read a ton about them and still should be able to help you out as far as details and facts go.
Real estate express is probably the best program in my eyes for a variety of different reasons. The biggest thing that they had that stood out to me is the high pass rate. I am a huge numbers guy and always play by the odds. Paying for these online real estate courses can be a lot of money and I don’t want to waste it and end up failing the test. That is why I made sure to go ahead and find the program that was going to suit my needs the best. I don’t have the current pass rate number because it changes, but it is generally going to be higher than the other courses.
That doesn’t mean the course is going to be a walk in the park, fun, or even the best option for you. It simply means that it has worked for other people and has the chance to work for you as well if you put the time and effort into it. You can also opt to pay extra for the textbooks if you are one of those type of learners. If you are someone that likes the brand name go to option, this would be my vote for you.
The next course I want to talk about is Brightwood Real Estate Education by Kaplan. This is another really good option as far as online real estate schools go and I really think you could benefit from this as well. Brightwood is going to be a little more expensive than all of the rest of the programs I talk about but sometimes that can be good. It means you are going to be paying for quality.
The thing that really stood out to me about Brightwood is how much access you have to a personal instructor. I talked to many different people and was shook at how much they allow you
access to your personal instructor. Kaplan is also an example of one of those schools that have real physical schools in person. If you are someone who learns better in an actual classroom environment, then this might be the option for you. They have a really cool option in which you can take a course that includes in person instruction with the online course.
If you aren’t a fan of real Estate Express for whatever reason, I highly suggest you check out Kaplan.
The last example of an online real estate school that I want to talk about is Career Webschool. This is another great choice in the state of Pennsylvania and I highly suggest you check it out. They have a rather high pass rate so you don’t need to worry about that when it comes to passing.
Career Webschool is a bit different than the other school’s I’ve talked about. You can pick and choose what real estate courses you want to purchase. This can allow you to save money, but you need to make sure you are also getting all of the material needed. I think career Webschool is actually one of the most modern and up to date options. That’s why I included it. If you are looking for the most modern option, I think you should look for career Webschool. If you are trying to take the course from your phone or tablet at all then you should highly suggest career Webschool.
Some of my other thoughts on online real estate schools in the state of Pennsylvania.
Although I included 3 good options for online real estate, that doesn’t mean those are going to be the absolute best for you. You need to read as many reviews as possible and make sure you are comfortable with your decision ahead of time. Reviews are really easily faked, so the more research you put into it ahead of time the better off you are going to be.
I really hope this helped get you on the right path. This is going to be a really big change in your life and I suggest you pick wisely!
Best of luck!
