Real estate requirements vary from state to state, both before getting an initial license and after becoming a licensed agent or broker. When you renew your license at either level, it is important that you understand and have met all of these requirements for your own home state. Those real estate license requirement
s may include hours of experience as well as hours of continuing education and may change frequently to make use of new rules and regulations in the real estate industry.
Prepping for Your Real Estate Broker Renewal
The most important thing to consider when getting ready to renew your real estate broker license
is whether you have met all of the requirements beforehand. In most states, there is not a grace period between the time that your license is set to expire and actual expiration date. Your last date is, in fact, the last date that you will have a valid license in that state. Make sure that you are getting your application, your renewal fee and your documentation into the Division of Real Estate before your expiration date.
While you certainly want to keep up with your educational requirements, you want to do so without comprising your standing and your ability to continue your career.
Making the Application Process Easier
It is best to apply for renewal application before you are close to your expiration date. In only a few states is there a grace period from the date of your expiration to the first date of your renewal but even in those states where there is a grace period, it is better to start as soon as possible. Before you get started with the renewal application process, make sure that you have all of the required documents. Most states have increased their requirements to include fingerprinting and criminal back checks.
Are Your Continuing Education Courses Up to Date and Acceptable?
All states have some requirement for continuing education for their real estate brokers
. The required classes must be completed from an acceptable source as determined by the Division of Real Estate. Because the rules and regulations can sometimes change the number of hours that are required, it is important to continually stay abreast of the news in the industry, particularly news specific to your own state.
Make sure that your state’s DRE lists the acceptable schools and courses that can be used. In most cases, you can take these courses online, but even with this option, it is important to make sure that you are using accredited courses from legal schools so that you are not wasting your time, energy and money.
After completing a course, make sure that your transcripts are sent to the DRE so that they are reviewed before you apply for your real estate license renewal
