Getting Your Nevada Real Estate License

Getting Your Nevada Real Estate License

Becoming a real estate agent has been a highly coveted career choice for several years. Realtors get to make their own hours, they can earn an entire month’s paycheck with one successful sale and they get to socialize with all kinds of different people. You may have considered it yourself from time to time, and maybe even looked into the requirements. Although real estate license requirements are fairly similar in all 50 states there are usually a couple of nuances that vary from state to state. If you’re interested in becoming a realtor in Nevada there are five primary requirements: 1) You must be 18, 2) Complete 90 hours of education, 3) Pass a background check, 4) Pass the state exam and 5) Apply for a license. It might sound easy, but you might want to take a look at the Nevada real estate license requirements below if you’re serious about getting your license.
