Alabama Real Estate Post License
Alabama Real Estate Post License is the required course that all sales licensees must take prior to receiving a permanent license. This comprehensive post license course begins with a discussion of business plans and prospecting techniques. Students will learn how to manage their time and money, communicate with buyers, explain the home buying process and property disclosures, and calculate a buyer’s estimated closing costs. Valuable information on communication skills, addressing buyers’ needs, buyer presentation packages, and conducting showings is also included followed by overviews of the home buying process, loans, and fair housing laws. Students will analyze effective methods of showing properties and helping buyers, preparing purchase agreements and CMAs, writing clear offers, and estimated closing cost forms as well as predatory lending practices. This course also helps students prepare listing presentations, determine a reasonable listing price, complete an Exclusive Seller Listing Agreement, and assemble marketing portfolios. After an overview of antitrust laws, students will learn about negotiating offers, assisting buyers and/or sellers from contract through closing, red flags in property conditions, and the importance of documentation. The course concludes with lessons covering such environmental hazards as asbestos, lead, and mold.
Requirements for Completing Alabama Real Estate Post License
There are three important steps to completing a course:
- Complete ALL lessons in the course by answering each question correctly at least twice. Most questions are timed and need to be answered within the prescribed time for credit. A lesson is not complete until it is checked off on the main menu.
- Once you have completed the lessons on the computer, you must submit a signed “Student Affidavit” that you personally completed the entire course yourself. Under state law, this Affidavit must be received before a Course Completion Certificate can be issued or your course completion can be electronically reported to your state (if applicable).
- If a final exam is required, you must schedule a proctored exam (or take an online exam if available in your state) and pass the exam (please see “State Requirements” page for the specific passing score required in your state.) (The “Course Available” page will indicate which courses require a final exam, and whether they require a proctor or are available online.)
Once these three steps have been completed, we will issue a Course Completion Certificate or electronically report your course completion to your state (if applicable).
