Fiserv and Moody’s Economy.com has reported that Nevada will be among the top five states expected to see price increases by 2014. What is good news for the Nevada real estate market is great news for the residents of the state, suffering one of the highest unemployment rates in the country. While the unemployment level remains high in Nevada, the prediction of an increase in the housing market means that there are fantastic Nevada career opportunities in real estate.
The requirements to earn a Nevada real estate license are not as difficult as one might think for a career with such tremendous income potential. You must first be at least 18 years old and a high school graduate. You should be prepared to have two sets of fingerprints taken for a background check. The required real estate courses that you will need to qualify to take the Nevada real estate license exam consists of 90 course hours in the subjects of real estate practices, real estate principles, and real estate law. Upon completion of the courses, you will need to get a score of at least 75% on the final exam. You can retake the test several times if needed, and have up to five years to achieve a passing score.
The real estate courses that you need before you can sit for the Nevada real estate license exam can be taken through an online real estate school, so they can fit into any schedule. As long as you have internet access and a computer, your real estate courses and exams are available to you at any time. If you cannot always access a computer, you may find the necessary real estate courses available on the iPhone, Blackberry, or any Smartphone with Android technology with no apps required. No matter where you are, your real estate course materials are at your fingertips.
If you consider that the cost of getting a Nevada real estate license is less than $500.00, it is the most affordable career move you could ever make. For less than the cost of the books and materials for a single traditional college course, you could be ready to start a new career in Nevada real estate.
There is no other industry that can offer the income generating potential of the real estate industry. With just a few hundred dollars and a training period that can be measured in weeks, there has never been a better time to get a Nevada real estate license.
