A Florida Real Estate On Line Course, How To Decide

    It costs $105 to apply for a Florida real estate license.  It cost $31 to take the Florida real estate exam, every time you take it.  It cost $57 to get your fingerprints taken.  How much you spend for your FREC course is important.  The most important consideration might not be price.
    If you are considering taking a Florida real estate course on line consider this:
    A Florida real estate school is in Florida.  Any school that does not have a brick and mortar school in Florida that you can walk into should be dropped from your consideration.
    Our school is in Orlando. I have a young man in my class that I am teaching now that has already graduated from some online school in Timbuktu.  He is in my class at Climer School of Real Estate so he can learn to pass the Florida real estate test.  He showed me the book that his foreign school sold him.  This book taught him how to compute revenue stamps.  We don't have revenue stamps in Florida.  We call then documentary stamps in Florida. The rates in his book were from some other state.  If you are taking an online course to get a Florida real estate license, Take your course from a Florida school.
    There are no questions on the Florida real estate test about what is going on in another state.
    What about price?  Is that a good way to decide?  I mentioned the other expenses above of getting a Florida real estate license.  Saving a few shekels on the price of the required course seems insignificant.  This is significant.  Be sure the school has a Florida real estate school permit. To be sure that a school has a Florida permit, go to the Department of Business and Professional Regulation's website at
    Here is a few questions to answer:
    Will I learn what I need to know to pass the Florida real estate exam?
    Is there a fee to retake the school test if I fail?
    Will I need to buy any other study aids to pass the Florida real estate exam?
    Is there a live Florida Instructor that I can talk to?
    Does this school have real estate math videos on You Tube that will help me?
    Does this school have a Florida school permit?
