Real Estate Fundamentals


The purchase or sale of a home or investment property is one of the most significant and complicated financial events in a person’s life. Because of this, most people tend to seek assistance from a sales agent when buying or selling real estate. Real estate sales agents become expert specialists of the real estate properties in their community. They are very knowledgeable as to which neighborhoods will best fit the needs and budgets of their clients, and are familiar with local tax and zoning laws. They are also resources for clients who need help in obtaining financing. Some real estate sales agents even act as intermediaries between buyers and sellers as they negotiate property values and prices.

This 44 hour course is approved by the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs. The Real Estate Fundamentals program has proven to be successful in preparing students to obtain a Real Estate Salesperson License in the State of Michigan.  

Real Estate agents usually work as independent sales agents contracting themselves with a licensed real estate broker. In return for their services, real estate agents are paid a portion of the commission earned from their sale of the property. Real estate careers can be quite lucrative, yielding excellent compensation for working when and how they want. 

What kind of certification will I receive?

After successful completion of the program, you will be awarded a certificate from Delta College.
