Obtaining your Missouri real estate license might be the best career move you ever make. A real estate license is your ticket to a fast-paced, fun, and lucrative career. While real estate in Missouri changes from year to year, The CE Shop provides you with a solid education in Missouri pre-licensing courses and continuing education courses that will always keep you ahead of the curve.
Income Potential for a Missouri Real Estate Salesperson
Annual income for a real estate salesperson can vary widely. Factors to consider when determining your income potential include:
✓ Full-time or part-time status
✓ Affiliated brokerage
✓ Housing prices and trends in your area
National salary data shows real estate agents averaging around $50,000 per year; in Missouri, there are many agents making well into the six-digit range. The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects a 10% market growth for real estate jobs over the next ten years. As the market continues to grow, so will the opportunities to earn a higher income.
While real estate doesn’t provide a fixed income like a traditional W2 role does, the earning potential for a real estate salesperson is usually much higher.
On the sale of a house valued at $500,000, the commission for completing the transaction will be $30,000. This $30,000 will be split in half between the buying and listing agents, leaving you with approximately $15,000. Of that $15,000 you now have, you may pay a percentage to the broker you work for (e.g., a 60/40 split). After paying your broker the 40%, you walk away with $9,000. With the sale of just one home, walking away with $9,000 is a very appealing and obtainable goal as a Missouri real estate salesperson.
Choosing the Right Education Provider for Missouri Pre-Licensing
When you’re starting a new career, education is the first step and choosing the right provider is key.
Age of Content & Platform
Content is the key to our success. The real estate market is constantly changing and, if you're not learning based on recent market trends, you'll be outdated before you even get started.
✓ Age of Content & Platform
We offer brand new content and frequent updates to our courses on a brand new online learning solution. We want you to learn, grow, and succeed through the most revolutionary ideas and approaches in education.
Money Back Guarantee
You shouldn’t have to pay for something that isn’t right for you. A lot of providers don’t have your best interest in mind and don’t offer a guarantee on their products once a course is started.
✓ Money Back Guarantee
We think this one is a no-brainer. We value your time, money, and effort and we prove it through our money back guarantee policy.
Not able to finish your course? Change your mind? Some providers don’t provide a refund for any reason.
✓ Refund Policy
If something in your life has affected your decision to take our course, we respect that, and we’re transparent about how we handle it. Call us about our refund policy.
You have a lot to do and time away from home while commuting to a classroom environment is time that can be better utilized.
One of the greatest advantages of taking your course online is that you can do it whenever it’s convenient for you. Have time first thing in the morning? That’s great. Awake at 2 am? Hop online and start learning!
Online vs. Classroom
If not done well, taking an online course can feel like reading a flat and unengaging textbook online. Classrooms can be inconvenient and only offer one-size-fits-all learning.
✓ Online vs. Classroom
Our online learning solution, LEAP, is innovative, new, and delivers content in an engaging and interactive way, helping to better prepare you for your new career.
Most providers don’t publish their pass rates - and that’s usually for a reason. Knowing their average success rate will help you determine if they're the best choice for you.
✓ Pass Rates - Learn more*
We pride ourselves on having one of the highest course pass rates in the industry! Our built-in exam prep is comprehensive and our goal is to enable you to move forward in your career.
In this day and age, providers often resort to flat, overwhelming text that lacks context and engagement. That doesn’t sound like a very effective way to learn.
✓ Education Methods
We know you’re striving to be the best. That’s why we designed LEAP with the latest in adult learning science to deliver a revolutionary experience.
The beauty of online education is taking it when the time is right for you – so doesn’t it make sense that customer service should be available then as well? Make sure your provider is available when you need them.
✓ Customer Service
We’re here for you when you need us, 7 days a week, via phone, chat, and email. We look forward to hearing from you!
