Florida real estate is booming, and starting a real estate career may be a great option for you. Fortunately, in Florida, obtaining a real estate license is fairly easy and generally involves only a few requirements.
First of all, an applicant must be at least 18 years of age and have a United States Social Security number. Second, a sales associate requires a high school diploma or its equivalent. Third, the applicant must take and pass a sales associate pre-license course. Moreover, the 63-hour Sales Associate pre-license course must be approved by the Florida Real Estate Commission. There is an additional cost for filing the application and obtaining a background check (by means of fingerprinting). Then, after the applicant completes the course and pays the application fee, the Department of Business and Professional Regulation needs to approve the application. After approval, the applicant must register and pass for an examination administered by a Pearson Vue testing center. Applicants that are able to meet all these requirements are granted a sales associate license in the State of Florida.
