If you stumbled upon this article, it seems as though you are probably interested in learning something about Texas real estate. Obtaining your real estate license can be really helpful. You can make some serious money if you know what you are doing. But like everything good in life, in order to succeed, you must go through different hoops. I’m going to put it out there right now from first hand experience, getting your real estate license is a very long and boring process. You have to make sure you are dedicated to the process and ready to work. It isn’t an easy path, but it really pays off in the end. If you are taking the route of trying to get your license online, then it is best that you find some videos and help. The better the course is the more you are going to get out of it. There are a lot of courses to pick from, a lot of which are similar and around the same price. You have to actually look and find the differences between them though.
A lot of the courses out there are old and don’t have overly great reviews. I am going to go into detail about some courses that I found effective. Although they aren’t the greatest, it is what we have to deal with as far as online courses go.
Let’s get right into it
I am going to list and talk about 3 of the best courses that I found
Like I said above, there are many different real estate courses out there for you to choose from. I decided to only go with the best 3 that I found for the sake of the length of this article. There are many different options to pick from but these were my favorite.
- Real Estate Express
This is probably my favorite course for a variety of different reasons.I used this course to get my real estate license. They have really good passing numbers on the exam which is really nice. I remember the pass rate being right around 80% when I took the course. It is harder to find that information out now but regardless of, if you put the time into it, chances are good you’re going to come out successful. 80% is a really high passing number for most of these courses.
This course is 100% certified in Texas and offers a variety of different practice exams and training opportunities. I really liked this program because you get your own personal trainer that you can easily reach from either your phone or email. Most of the other courses that I read about or even tried out, charge you for phone calls with your instructor. I’m really big on this because my instructor helped me get through so much and was really helpful.
You can easily spread your payment plan to 3 installments if you choose to do so. Getting into one of the main factors of all of this, price. As you probably expected, getting this wasn’t going to be a walk in the park. Most of the courses run anywhere from $500-$650 give or take some. Again, you need to make sure that you are super dedicated and willing to put in all of the time. Many of the other courses out there don’t let you spread out payments so this was really helpful.
Real Estate Express didn’t get the highest reviews in the world, but I really liked the course overall and thought that it brought so much to the table that the other courses out there don’t have. The test is very straightforward and helps you figure out if you are ready or not.
- Aceable Agent
From what I read, most everyone thinks that Aceable agent is the best online real estate course in the whole state of Texas. Aceable agent does happen to be the newest online training program around, which tends to be a better option for younger people. It is going to be the best at adapting. A lot of the courses that have been approved in the state have been around for 10+ years and you might think that is the best option. I probably disagree with that thought process but that is completely up to you.
Many of the courses out there are still super outdated and hard to use. They’ve been slightly edited over time, but nothing really compares to AceableAgent. AceableAgent came around last year so it is the most modern you are going to find in all.
There is a lot to like about AceableAgent. One of thing that I liked was how everything was taught. As you could probably imagine it is a lot of information to take in. That is what I looked in for a software…How the information is presented. I really liked how AceableAgent has a variety of different texts, video and other features to help you learn.
Another feature that I really like is the mobile apps. If you want to study on the road, Aceable Agent is a really good option for you. One guarantee they offer if you sign up for a career kickstart is that you will start a house in 90 days. I’m not sure I’ve seen that on any of the other softwares that I checked out.
AceableAgent is owned and operated by a local Texas company. They have really good service with people from Texas and are close by if you ever need anything.
AceableAgent is the newest software available and probably the best option currently out there as far as online real estate courses go. It has the best reviews out of any of the software/courses that I have used and seen. I have used AceableAgent myself personally as well because I wanted to make sure that I knew what I was talking about and it really is a solid software.
Final Verdict: AceableAgent is probably the best course training for real estate in Texas.
Let’s move onto the last software that I am going to be reviewing.
The last training course isn’t quite as good as the other ones but was still a decent choice.
Kaplan Real Estate Education:
I liked this course because it is really popular and well known around the state. When I was looking at reviews for training course I read many good things about Kaplan.
The passing rate when I looked a while ago was 76%. That passing rate is much better than most of the other courses out there which is always a positive when you are thinking about going into real estate.
You can get all of the practice exams that the other courses offer but I liked that they went above and behind. You can access all of their live study groups and instructions from your instructors. Although they don’t go towards your 180 hour requirement, it is still good if you believe you need more help.
They don’t offer phone calls with your instructors which I didn’t like, but do have email support. I waited a really long time for some of my responses which I wasn’t a huge fan of. I really don’t like when courses like this don’t have good communication and that is probably why this is at the bottom of my list.
These prices for this course start at $499 and go all the way up to $899. The more money you spend the more perks and benefits that you are going to get.
Although a lot of the reviews are really bad for this course online, I found it to be rather helpful. These courses are all really what you put into it.
Although this course is slightly outdated, there are still some really good and helpful lessons in it. I really suggest at least checking out Kaplan to see if it might be a good choice for you.
I said above that I was only going to review 3 of the courses that I worked with, but I decided to throw in one more that I think brings some interesting features to the table.
Career Web School
This is another really popular course that I read about and used a little myself. Like all of the other courses that I talked about, you can use Career web school to obtain your real estate license so it is legit.
One thing that stood out to me that I really didn’t like was the super low pass rate of 59%. Also below the others that I mentioned above.
You can get all of the practices exams that you need with this course which is a good thing, but there is no live training which is a huge let down.
You do get access to a personal instructor which is good, but you can only contact them via email. If you want to talk to your instructor over the phone, you are going to have to pay extra for it.
