4 Common Online Real Estate School Misconceptions
Every industry comes with its misconceptions. Of course, that means that real estate is no exception to this. And that especially goes for education as well. As professionals of our craft, we are here to help you navigate through these misconceptions and begin your education with the right state of mind. Discover more and see if our online real estate school is for you.
Education Stops After Pre-licensing
One of the biggest misconceptions in the real estate world is the idea that your education stops after you get your license. However, this is not the case. Real estate agents must also receive education in post-licensing and also in continuing education courses. When it comes to continuing education courses, agents need to receive these every so often in order to keep their skills polished.
You Cannot ‘Bend The Rules’
When it comes to real estate, there are many rules in place in order to keep the industry safe, organized, and fair to all. That being said, there are a number of real estate agents who have tried to bend the rules to their advantage. However, this is not allowed and, when caught, will affect your career significantly.
Real Estate Is a Walk in the Park
Do you remember in high school that there were a few classes that were seen as “easy-A” courses? Unfortunately, we sometimes get students who believe that going into real estate is a quick, easy way to get money. Many people thrive in this industry, especially with the right state of mind and skill set. But it isn’t something you can simply glide through. That’s why we encourage our students to uphold a certain standard not only for themselves but also for their future clients and the industry’s integrity.
Online School Is Difficult
This is one misconception that stands out to us in particular. There’s a pretty big misconception that online education is more difficult than brick-and-mortar education. But, actually, it’s much easier.
Usually, brick-and-mortar schools require their students to come to classes that follow a set schedule, taking them away from their duties, and forcing them to move THEIR schedule around for their education. However, with our pre-recorded lessons, you can take your online classes at any time, from nearly anywhere.
Continuing, because you can take these courses nearly anywhere, as long as you have a Wi-Fi connection, you could even take your classes from the comfort of your own home or office. As long as it’s within the time limit provided by the state and our programs, you can go at your own pace.
