Genuine West Virginia Real Estate School

There are some licenses that empower holders to act in particular capacities wherever in the country and – it can some be said, in the world – they happen to be. Types of Licenses that might grant this authority would include Radio Services Licenses, Software Licenses, International Driver Licenses, Bank Licenses, Federal Firearm Licenses, Pilot and Airline Licenses, plus a number of others which cannot be listed here.

However, the course of study required to obtain an international driver’s license for example must, by the very nature of the licensed permissions, be more encompassing than a state issued license for local use; and the holder of such a license is likewise obligated to adhere to the driving laws, customs and restrictions of the various cities and localities in which s/he operates a vehicle. This obligation therefore is spread over multiple countries, each of which expects as much from the licensee in the form of obeying their laws, as they grant with the issuance of a license to drive.

The same reasoning can be applied to a real estate school that is licensed to offer and teach real estate licensing courses of study and issue certifications of course completion in every state throughout the country, from Alabama to Wyoming, thereby obligating that school to the adherence of real estate licensing laws set forth by each state’s licensing agency. So while this nationwide school has managed to spread or duplicate itself in all fifty states, it can hardly claim undivided loyalty and attention to one.

On the other hand, the genuine West Virginia real estate school designation can only be bestowed upon a genuine West Virginia real estate school. West Virginians might just be more comfortable in knowing that their real estate school instructor understands country living and the West Virginia way of life, and has an established record over an extended period of teaching experience in West Virginia real estate licensing courses. They might like to know that s/he has an innate knowledge of the subject matter and is eager to impart that knowledge to West Virginia real estate license applicants, as well as currently licensed brokers and salespersons via the continuing education courses as required by state law.

A genuine West Virginia real estate school that offers a complete line of approved seven-hour courses in class, as well as live online real estate classes, and is Arello approved for a 90 Hour Pre Sales License Course certainly employs techniques and methods consistent with the most effective and results oriented practices in the industry; and making available the latest technology, tools and resources necessary to insure successful completion of the required real estate licensing courses will certainly benefit West Virginia real estate license applicants.

But most importantly, WV real estate broker and salesperson licensees and those who aspire to be WV real estate broker and salesperson licensees can be comforted in knowing that – all other things being equal – classes offered by the genuine West Virginia Real Estate School are all approved by the West Virginia Real Estate Commission; they are competitively priced and they meet such high standards as the state of WV requires for delivery of education in real estate licensing. So be assured that not every real estate school that sets up shop in WV can be considered a “genuine WV” school.

A real estate broker anywhere, is entrusted with an enormous undertaking and bears the responsibility of handling the sale, management or lease of the single biggest asset most people will ever possess; the property they own. It is for this reason that the real estate broker must acknowledge and accept the fiduciary role and the principle on which it is based: The interest of your client must in all circumstances be placed ahead of your own. Thus the most important reason for well taught real estate licensing and continuing education classes designed to equip real estate licensing students and already licensed professionals with the education they will need in order to adequately meet the challenges which are inherent in protecting their clients interests.

A genuine West Virginia real estate school obviously plays an instrumental role in helping real estate license applicants prepare to meet such a challenge and, as such, might offer more extensive courses of study sufficient to complete such preparation. Such courses of study might include:

Real Estate Agency, Real Estate Brokerage, Listing Agreements, Dual Agency, Real Property and the Law, Transfer of Title, Title Records, Real Estate Financing Principles & Practice, Leases, Property Management, Fair Housing and Ethical Practices, Environmental Issues and Real Estate Transactions, Closing the Real Estate Transaction, Real Estate Math, plus a number of other subjects. There is much to cover in your role as a real estate broker, because there is a lot in the way of client’s interests to protect. Getting the requisite knowledge is your first step toward what promises to be a fulfilling and rewarding career.

Background Checks for WV Real Estate License Become Huge Annoyance

If you’re trying to get a West Virginia Real Estate License and test in November, 2013 you’re probably getting very frustrated.

Background checks from Identogo are now mandatory.

It seems that Identogo, the company hired as a third party screener by the West Virginia Real Estate Commission to do background checks on all students hoping to get their West Virginia Real Estate License has had some problems communicating the info to the commission.

Red Tape and Issues

Red tape abounds and getting a West Virginia Real Estate License truly is a lot of paperwork. This most recent hold up is just another frustration for hopeful students hoping to be selling real estate in December.

What does this mean to the hopeful test takers? It means that the WVREC doesn’t have the applications completed in time to test in November. Click to Tweet

What’s most frustrating to many hopeful West Virginia Real Estate License students is although the checks were done on time it was something that was outside of everyone’s control that held up the applications. Identogo, the company in charge of the background checks has yet to comment on the situation. So what are the new guidelines being asked for? As of October 8th, 2013 having a background check accompanying your West Virginia Real Estate License, application is state law.

See details from the source, the WVREC

To brief yourself from the source, here’s the West Virginia Real Estate Commission’s website: https://rec.wv.gov/Forms/Pages/default.aspx

The physical form that you need is located here: WVREC Background Check Form

You will need to make an appointment with this company called Indentogo by calling 855-766-7746 or using their website: https://Identogo.com to register an appointment. The commission isn’t allowing any more testees to test unless a background check is completed beforehand. Let me repeat, YOU WILL NEED TO SUBMIT A BACKGROUND CHECK WITH YOUR APPLICATION.

If you already submitted your application you will STILL need to do this background check in order to test. The background check will be sent electronically to the WVREC by Identogo once it is completed so the form does NOT need to be mailed.
