Real Estate Principles
A real estate license opens up a world of career possibilities that offer independence, a flexible work schedule, and unlimited earning potential.  A real estate license can also save you many thousands of dollars when you buy or sell your home. Taught by a veteran Real Estate Broker, Real Estate Principles reviews basic concepts, including forms of ownership, title and vesting, taxation, appraisal, default and foreclosure, property management, financing and real estate math concepts. This is typically the first class in the series. Class fees include textbook, quizzes, final exam, and course certificate.

Real Estate Practice

A real estate license does't come with an operating manual, so this course was created to talk about what it really takes to succeed in the business. Real Estate Practice discusses getting started, marketing, time management, listings, contracts, agency, disclosures, escrow, finance, completing transactions, and working with buyers and sellers. This is the second course required to obtain a California Real Estate License. Class fees include textbook, quizzes, final exam and course certificate.   

Legal Aspects of Real Estate

Real estate is filled with legal issues, forms, disclosures and contracts. This course covers all the essentials. The discussion includes the main laws governing real estate, property interests, title and vesting, dispute resolution, contract law, listing and purchase agreements, and other contracts commonly used in real estate transactions. This is the third course required to obtain a California Real Estate License. Class fees include textbook, quizzes, final exam and course certificate.

Exam Prep
With a California state exam pass rate of less than 50%, it’s a good idea to have extra focused exam preparation and review! Taught by a veteran real estate broker who has helped many students obtain their license, the Real Estate Exam “Cram” class covers all the important material needed to pass the state exam. Class fee includes practice tests with 750 sample questions, terms and definitions, “hot sheets” of recent exam questions, math review, and test-taking tips.
