So you want to become a real estate agent? Well, it can be a lucrative career and you can help people through some of the biggest purchases of their lives. When I was becoming a real estate agent, it was really hard to find tips and methods to study for the exam.
So here I will give you 5 tips for your real estate salesperson exam.
Tip 1: Buy a Crash Course
Crash courses are a must for the real estate salesperson exam. I get it – you are busy, you have been out of school for a while, or you have no background in the field. Whatever the reason, just studying Kaplan or another guide on its own is tough.
I spent hours researching how to pass the real estate exam. Remember that each state has slightly different exams, so you will want to research your state specifically. I recommend buying 2 or 3 of these to get started.
Tip 2: Take a lot of practice tests
Taking practice tests helped me a lot. I was able to quickly figure what parts of the real estate curriculum I was lacking in. There is a big difference between taking tests and reading the subject matter. I recommend you take any and all practice tests that you can find online. It also helps you figure out what content matters more to the test makers and what you need to work on.
Tip 3: Don’t give up
The real estate exam is tough. And many don’t pass on their first try. Keep going! You won’t regret it once you get that coveted license. And the steps are there for a reason – to protect you and make sure you are serious about this!
Tip 4: Network
Networking with others is really important once you are an agent. You can start developing those relationships now as you wait for your license with others who are interested. You never know where your next buyer or seller will come from!
Tip 5: Review key terms
A big portion of the exam is reviewing and studying the key terms – especially the Latin terms. They are big and scary, but they often mean very simple things. Don’t be scared, but create flashcards and review these terms carefully. You should be fine if you follow these 5 simple steps!
