Real Estate Degree And Programs
Career options in real estate include sales and brokerage, property management, and building inspection and appraisal. Every state (and each career path) has its own requirements for licensure. These can range from a short training course to a bachelor's degree in real estate, finance, or business. Continuing education is generally required to keep licenses current.
Real Estate Careers
Appraisers establish the value of commercial and residential buildings by analyzing their condition and quality, and comparing them to recently sold properties in the same area. Inspectors check buildings for safety and functionality, and report items that don't meet building codes or require repair. Property managers administer buildings, ranging from apartment houses to hospitals. They also run community homeowners' associations. Real estate agents and brokers facilitate the buying and selling of commercial and residential property.
