What is Arizona Real Estate School Like?

AZ Real Estate School

A common question we receive is “what is Arizona real estate school like?” While that can be a vague question resulting in a very long answer, we’ve found that it usually means that someone is trying to understand what the material is all about and how the process goes.

A common misconception is that real estate school teaches you how to “sell” real estate. While yes the rules and regulations are covered that involve transactions, actual selling/marketing techniques are usually not covered. Why you ask? Because the Arizona Department of Real Estate requires that schools teach 90 hours of material with very specific topics that must be covered. None of which involve teaching people how to sell. There simply isn’t any room in the courses for it and lets be honest, do you really want to be studying things that you won’t be tested on on the final exam?

Back to the original question though, “what is Arizona real estate school like?” Schools have either the option of offering live “in person” courses or online on demand module type courses. There are pros and cons to either of these options and it really depends on the person taking the material and what works best.
