What You'll Get
Jump to: Reviews
Today's side deal gets you a 30-credit-hour, live real-estate course at The Austin Institute of Real Estate for $75 (a $175 value). The course offers a comprehensive education, perfect for someone looking to jumpstart a career, or a current agent seeking on-going education cred.
Aspiring and accomplished acreage agents can pick from a variety of 30-credit-hour courses in the Institute's course catalog, covering principles, financing, appraisals, investment psychology, property management, and a whole lot more. Classes are available weekdays, evenings, and weekends and can be finished in as few as four days. All provide vital information on the art of the deal. With the amount of quality real estate in the Austin area, competing realtors, and mercurial legal requirements from the Texas Real Estate Commission, house-hawkers always have a good excuse to give themselves an edge with a little schooling.
While it's a buyer's market at the moment, an upturn is inevitable. Especially in Austin, which was named Second Best Place to Live by CNNMoney.com in 2006. Best of all, you'll get to be your own boss, offering the added satisfactions of being able to fire yourself, rehire yourself, fire yourself again, rehire yourself again, and promote yourself to superboss.
