If you are looking for a great career for the New Year, getting a Texas real estate license could be exactly what you are looking for. Not only is real estate the third largest industry in Texas, Texas also ranks at the top of the stateís leading the country in the strengthening real estate market. A brand new and lucrative career with your Texas real estate license could be yours in just weeks.

The requirements to earn your Texas real estate license are much simpler than you might expect. To begin with, you must be a minimum of 18 years old, a citizen of the United States, and a permanent resident of Texas. You will need to undergo a background check to ensure that you are of good character and without a criminal record. If you can meet these basic qualifications, you need to locate an approved educator to complete the educational requirements for earning your Texas real estate license.

In Texas, you are required to complete 210 real estate course hours in order to sit for the Texas real estate license exam. These hours are grouped together to cover several topics. Sixty hours will cover real estate principles. Thirty hours will cover the laws of agency, and an additional thirty hours on contract law. The final 90 hours are elective and can be chosen from a list of core real estate courses. These topics may include, but are not limited to, real estate appraisal, law, finance, marketing, brokerage, investment, or inspection. Additionally, there are also courses in property management and promulgated contracts available to choose from. If scheduling classes is a problem, all of the real estate classes required to receive a Texas real estate license can be completed through an approved online real estate school.

Once you have completed your real estate training and passed the final exam, your proof of education must be submitted to the Commission for verification. Once the educational conditions have been verified you will apply for an inactive salesperson license. Again, this process is available to be completed online.

When the Commission has accepted your application for the Texas real estate license exam, and you have paid all of the required fees, you will receive your exam registration information through the Candidate Information Brochure (CIB). The CIB will contain all of the details of your examination. Texas real estate license examinations are administered at PSI exam centers.

While you are awaiting your exam date, you will need to locate a sponsoring broker. In order for your Texas real estate license to be activated, you must have a broker to sponsor you. You will need to provide your sponsoring brokerís information to the test center because your real estate license will be sent directly to this broker.

The current job market has many people looking for a career that can provide security and stability going into the New Year and beyond. A new and exciting career with a Texas real estate license can be underway in just a matter of weeks.
