If you are planning to relocate to NC and practice real estate, significant changes to the North Carolina state exam were implemented on March 1, 2012. The new exam now consists of two different types of questions: national and state-specific, meaning questions that are very specific in terms of how real estate is practiced in North Carolina.
The applicant is given four hours to complete the test and the pass rate is 75%. Feedback from our students indicates that the state-specific portion of the exam is quite challenging.
For students who have completed a pre-licensing course through the Fonville Morisey Center for Real Estate Studies, they are finding that they are well prepared for the test.
A group that is experiencing a special challenge are those people who are relocating to North Carolina from other states in which they are licensed. The new rules require that anyone who is licensed in another state and wishes to be licensed to practice real estate here in N. C. must take the state-specific portion of the exam. These applicants are having a lot of difficulty finding study material to help them prepare for the test.
At Fonville Morisey Center for Real Estate Studies we have developed a Simply State Exam Review to assist those who need this type of information. We offer a LIVE one-day session on a quarterly basis as well as a downloadable version of the material available for purchase on our website at www.fmshool.com.
