Program Description

The real estate development program is offered in many universities. This degree is also available on a Master's level, preparing you to be successful as a real estate developer. The curriculum teaches you to identify the real estate development opportunities and then pursue them. You can also learn about construction, financing and management of the development property once it is built. This specific degree helps you to get a job with development firms or even gives you the knowledge to begin your own business.

Become a Real Estate Agent

You can also choose to pursue a degree in real estate management. This is also known as property management. The real estate investors require property managers who lease and run their properties for them. A quality real estate manager secures an investment and then makes it more profitable. This program teaches students the basics of managing investment property. Students learn about working with repair issues, tenants, collecting rent and various other factors critical for property managers. You do not have to have a degree in property management to have a career as a property manager, but it helps when trying to get a job at a particular property management firm. This program is also offered as a Master's degree or a Bachelor' degree at some schools.

Real Estate Degree Schools

Real estate agents must however complete a specific number of course hours and then pass an exam before they begin renting and selling property. Each state normally has its own agent license, and its own set of rules and requirements for real estate degrees. To get a less expensive degree course in real estate, you can visit a brokerage or real estate company and then speak with one of the agents about the program. You should ask about the best low-cost courses that are available in that area but are still accredited. Ask about the weekend-course and weeklong course programs, which allow one to finish course hours within a shorter amount of time. You should also verify your state's approved number of hours for real estate courses. You can check both online and in the physical classrooms and then compare the costs of each. Also available is an accredited class at the local community college to learn the course. You can take online-accredited courses that meet the requirements for your state. You will then weigh the costs with what you can get from that particular course. Learn about real estate practices and laws, interest rates and mortgages necessary to obtaining your license. Next, buy used calculators, textbooks and watch online videos for courses that are free over the Internet. Finally, apply to take license exams for your state and be prepared so that you pass and don't have to pay to take the exam again.
