Careers: Getting a Real Estate License

Entry into the real estate profession takes preparation. As with other professions, licensing is required. Licensing requirements and costs vary from state to state, but generally range between $1,000-$2,000 for start-up costs such as pre-licensing classes, the state licensing exam, and real estate association memberships.

It is also recommended that you enter the business with enough cash flow to cover your short-term living expenses and be able to invest in personal promotion and advertising. For more information on how to obtain a real estate license in your state, click on the link below:
