Just like any other type of education, getting a Nevada real estate license has eligibility requirements, key concepts that you will need to be familiar with, and the individual needs to have the financial ability to pay the fees associated with tuition and application status.
For the state of Nevada there are specific state requirements that you will need to fulfill including a pre-licencing education and a passing score on the state exam. For individuals who want to get a real estate license, you are going to need to fulfil the following steps:
Ensure that you fulfill Nevada’s requirements, including age, education, and residency. You will need pre-licensing education, a passing score on the state exam, as well as application approval.
If you meet the requirements, but do not have pre-licensing education than you will need to choose an accredited school within the state of Nevada and complete the licensing process. To do this you will need to:
- Enroll in the school
- Complete the exam prep course
- Obtain a certificate of completion from the school
- For those who already have a degree in real estate, this process will be different.
- Once you have completed your pre-licensing education with a passing grade, you will need to file an application and pay the fees associated with it. You may also need to complete a background check, do fingerprinting or have a sponsoring broker prior to the application process.
After your application has been accepted for your Nevada real estate license, you will need to find a testing center. These testing centers will be a third party, and you will need to register with the exam vendor and schedule a date to take the exam.
It is important to note that a background check and fingerprinting may be required prior to taking the exam, so ensure that you have enough time for the check to be processed prior to the exam. If you pass the exam, then you will be required to work with a managing broker for the first two years of your real estate career which you will work on the behalf of.
