Greetings Boston condo fans. This past weekend, I was rather busy! Want to know why? I was taking the required real estate course to get my license! Although it was a grueling 12 hrs both Saturday and Sunday, I thoroughly enjoyed learning as much as I could about real estate, Boston real estate and the requirements of a Boston real estate agent!
Stay tuned as I post articles on each of the chapters that were heavily covered in the real estate course! You can follow me as I study and work my way to pass the test to become a licensed Boston real estate agent.
Why did I do this you ask? Well, I write about real estate (almost) everyday and because I find the intricacies of the real estate market so incredibly interesting, I said, “why not!”
My real estate classroom journey began Saturday morning, 9am sharp, at the Metropolitan School of Real Estate. It was a small class, and after everyone expressed why they had decided to take the class, instructor Michael Albano started his work.
We started with Chapter one, and began discussing real estate property. The class learned that there are actually two types of property- real estate (land and almost everything in or attached) and personal property. Further broken down, the term real estate actually means, “real”- real property rather than personal property and “estate”- amount or quantity of ownership interested in real property.
I have to get back to studying now, I am taking my real estate exam very soon and must memorize the Massachusetts Real Estate License Law and Regulations this evening!
Stay tuned for more on my Boston real estate agent series. It’s a work-in-progress.
Some of the topics I will be covering include: The Concepts of Property, Types of Estates, Some great information on Condominiums, Deeds and Contracts, Financing and Mortgages, Real Estate Brokerage and Agency, Brokers’ Commissions or Fees (one of my favorites), Appraisal of Real Estate, and much much more!
I learned some great information on Boston real estate this past weekend and cannot wait to share it with you all.
