The requirements for real estate licensure vary from state to state. In many jurisdictions, getting a real estate license is a lot easier than getting one to cut hair.
Many suggest that the standard be raised and that more education should be demanded in order to sell real estate.
And while some decry this as a “protectionist” attitude from incumbent agents in order to eliminate competition, I see it differently.
Due to the changes in the actual practice in real estate sales and the ever increasing threat of litigation, strengthening of the licensure process would serve to protect the licensee as well as the public.
The ability to get a license quickly and easily is not a boon. It is a curse.
How much better would it be to send a newly licensed agent into the real world educated and informed?
The agent would benefit as much as anyone.
And be better equipped to serve the public.
