What Should I Look For In A Real Estate School?

Are you considering a career in real estate? Unsure of the first step? Let us help!

When beginning your real estate journey, your first step is to choose a real estate school. There are many real estate schools to choose from both online and in-person. Be sure to take a few things into consideration when deciding which real estate school is for you, such as: your learning style, the location of the school, and if class times will work with your schedule.

Learning Style

Before deciding on a real estate school, think through your learning style. Do you learn best from a lecture style class, with peer discussion or hands-on, or do you prefer to study on your own? It’s important to know how you learn best before choosing your classes and educators. All school programs and even educators will offer different teaching methods. Be sure to do some research and talk to a school representative to discover more about your potential choices.


As we mentioned above, there are online real estate schools, in-person real estate schools, and schools that offer both types of classes. When you are determining which type of classes will be best for you, keep in mind your learning style, lifestyle, and location. If you have a family, consider an online real estate program that you can complete from home. If you don’t have other responsibilities besides work, a real estate school that is close to your house or your workplace may be best.

Choosing a school that’s near you will make it easier to attend classes and be on time. An in-person real estate school can also help hold you accountable. Knowing you have to physically be present and on time for your class means it’s more likely for you to go. Online classes are almost too easy to skip or place on the back burner. If you are someone who needs more motivation, in-person classes will be your best choice.


It’s hard for working men and women to find extra time for real estate classes, let alone when they also have families or other responsibilities. A flexible real estate program is what many are looking for when beginning their real estate journey. If you’re in the same boat, flexibility is at the top of your list for a real estate school.

What does flexibility actually look like? A flexible real estate program will offer classes at many different times throughout the week. This allows you to maintain your regular schedule while also taking classes.

If you have good time management skills and are self-motivated, an online real estate school would be a great choice. Online classes would be available to complete at any time and day of the week from the comfort of your own home, office, or local coffee shop.
