Top Online Real Estate Schools

SchoolsGalore.com lists an array of online real estate classes to meet your specific educational needs. Real estate courses can introduce you to the industry's fundamentals and help you prepare to take written exams and become a licensed realtor in your state.  According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), every state in the US currently requires real estate brokers and sales agents to be licensed (BLS.gov, 2012). Although minimum licensing requirements for agents vary by state, prospective real estate agents must typically be at least 18 years old, possess a high school diploma and pass a licensing exam.

Careers in real estate include various specialties such as property manager and commercial real estate broker. Agents sell, buy or rent properties, while brokers may operate a real estate office and undertake additional transactions such as arranging loans. A broker's license usually requires experience in the field as well as education, the BLS states. With advanced online real estate training and experience, you could potentially branch out into related positions. For example, a master's degree in business with a concentration in real estate may help professionals prepare for careers in real estate investment counseling or mortgage financing.

The Institute of Real Estate Management (IREM) promotes ethical business practices, education and information sharing. IREM lists selected universities that offer real estate and business studies, which may use IREM textbooks, give degree credit for IREM courses or partner with IREM in some other way. IREM's academic connections include the following:

1.  Ball State University
2.  California State University Fullerton
3.  Drexel University

According to the BLS, many employers seek candidates with college degrees, especially in a crowded marketplace (BLS.gov, 2012). That makes training an important step toward working in real estate.
