Three Tips for Trying to Get a Real Estate License in BC

More people than ever are interested in getting their real estate license in BC, but it’s not an easy process. It means a lot of exams via the University of British Columbia, as well as plenty of on-the-job training as well. Despite how interested people are in becoming realtors, some aren’t ready for the reality of the training process.

So, if you’re thinking about getting your real estate license in BC, Quick Pass Master wants you to be aware of what the process entails – and what you’ll need to bring to the table!

Three Things You Need to Get Your Real Estate License in BC

  1. Money

Tuition at UBC is less expensive than at some other schools, but it’s still four figures to get into their real estate program, along with various other fees and dues. The amount it costs may also go up if you choose to attend a preparatory real estate school on the side – although for many, that’s an expenditure that’s worth it.

Why? Because you also need:

  1. Time

Going “by the book” it will take around a year and a half to fully complete your course work, take your exams, and then get in all the practical hands-on training which is necessary to become fully licensed. In fact, that’s one of the biggest reasons students choose to invest in a secondary real estate school like Quick Pass Master. With the right help, it’s possible to cut months off that timeframe – getting your license in a year or less.

For those who are paying their way through their courses, the extra costs of the prep school can be mitigated by the time savings. They’ll be out there selling homes, while others are still in class.

  1. Determination

Becoming a realtor isn’t easy. The classes are full of dense materials, and the exams are very deliberately made difficult to “weed out” those who aren’t right for the job. They also require a very high level of English proficiency, something that many people don’t realize before entering the program. Even native speakers may have trouble with the strict language requirements!

No matter how much help you get, you will need true determination and patience to fully complete the program.
