Real Estate Certificate

The Real Estate certificate program prepares students for careers as real estate agents. The courses in the program cover the objectives of the Ohio Real Estate Sales Associate License exam. Students will gain knowledge in business practices and ethics; agency and licensing; property characteristics, descriptions, ownership, interests and restrictions; property valuation and the appraisal process; sales contracts, financing resources, closing/settlement and transferring title; and property management. Students may complete all four courses in one semester, if they so choose.

Although the four courses listed below adequately prepare a student to sit for the licensing exam, students may wish to expand their business knowledge and communication skills. Students may wish to take other courses such as, but not limited to: Introduction to Business, Small Business Management, Principles of Marketing, and Interpersonal Communications.

The graduate will be able to:

1. Interpret real estate law as it pertains to real estate brokers and salespersons.
2. Have a working knowledge of financing processes such as mortgage loans and the mortgage market.
3. Use theory and principles of appraising urban property.
