Hi! I am thinking about getting a real estate license and I live in SC. How does it work to sell in both SC & NC? Do you have to take both tests? Which schools are recommended? Any advise is appreciated!

Thanks!

I went with Fortune Academy - - they have classes at York Tech. I took the SC test. Once you pass the SC test, you can pay a fee and get a reciprocal license in several states, including NC. You don't have to take another test. Living close to the border, it is advisable to have a license in both NC & SC. Good luck!

Default Links to Real Estate Schools

Hi!

It's been awhile, but I would guestimate the education will cost $450-$600.
There is a fee to take the test.
There are Realtor Association joining fees.

It is very competitive in York County. The market seems to be improving a little for sellers. Rates have dropped here, bringing more buyers.

Links for classes locally are below.

There are also weekend schools throughout the state if you want to finish faster.

It is super easy to get your SC and then pay your fee to get the NC. The requirements for both states are different so be sure to constantly keep tabs on what you need as far as continuing education. But be prepared..it is not easy! It is good once you get established, but that could take awhile with all the competition. I took my classes at York Tech and I have also taken classes at the Realtor association in Rock Hill (on main street). I had good experiences at both. Good Luck!

Default Reviving an old thread

I know this thread was started quite a while ago, but I wanted to revive it with a follow-up question.

How much does it cost to activate your license with a company? I know there are many start-up fees - lockboxes, MLS membership fees, yard signs, etc.

Also, how much does it cost to keep your license active on a monthly basis? I know this number varies from company to company; but some are more than others. I was licensed in another state, and it cost me $200.00 a month just to be affiliated with RE/MAX, and then they took a split when I sold something. Another company charged a couple hundred a month but waived it if you had at least two escrows per month, and the split was much higher than it was with RE/MAX.

It's totally different depending on which brokerage you're with. I can tell you that with Keller Williams, it's going to cost you about $2000 to get into the business. (license class, test, join the mls, join the association, join the brokerage, signs, cards, all in everything) After that, with KW it will cost you about $70/month.

I'm happy to talk through it all with you - shoot me a message if you're interested in a phone call or even stopping by the office for a chat.
