Are you looking to become a Realtor in Pennsylvania? If so, you'll need to meet certain requirements set by the Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission. To obtain your Pennsylvania real estate license, you must be at least 18 years old, complete 75 hours of approved education, complete a background check, and pass state and national real estate license exams. The Pennsylvania Real Estate Commission requires aspiring real estate agents to complete 75 hours of approved pre-licensing courses in the state. This includes a 30-hour course on the fundamentals of real estate licensing and a 45-hour practical course on real estate licensing.
You can take these courses in a classroom or online on your own schedule. Once your license has been issued, you'll see it immediately below the professional license details banner on your control panel. You will receive the license at your broker's main office within 7 to 10 business days from the date of issue. You may also qualify if you earned a bachelor's degree specializing in real estate at an accredited university, a doctorate in law from an accredited law school, or completed 75 hours of pre-licensing courses in another state or jurisdiction that were approved to meet licensing requirements in that state or other jurisdiction. To become a Realtor in Pennsylvania, you must be at least 18 years old and have a high school diploma or equivalent. You must also successfully complete 75 hours of approved real estate education within five years of passing the real estate exams. Once you have met all the requirements, you will be able to apply for your Pennsylvania real estate license and begin your career as a Realtor.
