Just about every successful real estate investor I know is already a licensed real estate broker, and they did this by taking and passing the real estate brokers exam.
If you want to be a real estate investor, why should you even bother attending a real estate seminar and take the exam?
As mentioned in my 7 tips to help you get started with real estate investing, attending a real estate seminar/review for aspiring real estate brokers is a great way to learn about the legal aspects of property ownership, real estate taxation, real estate laws in the Philippines, etc.
Although newbie real estate investors can attend a real estate seminar just for the knowledge, you might as well take the exam right?! I consider passing the exam and becoming a licensed real estate broker as icing on the cake!
Question is, where can you review for the real estate brokers exam?
With the March 2013 real estate brokers exam just around the corner, you’re in luck as several review centers have already started to offer their Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Reviews or CRESR’s, and I will compile them here just like what I did in the past.
By the way, attending a CRESR is just one of the many real estate broker exam requirements. You also need to be a college graduate to be eligible to take the real estate brokers exam on March 2013. Please keep this in mind before you register for any of the following real estate seminars.
