A career in real estate can be challenging and rewarding. Even lucrative. It’s an attractive profession that requires a solid educational foundation. The road to your first realty deal begins at MCC.
The Real Estate & Real Estate Appraisal program is designed for students who plan to enter the real estate profession. Our program includes in-depth exposure to real estate principles, practices, appraisals, sales, and much more. If you plan on following the curriculum you should become familiar with the provisions of the real estate codes and with the licenses required.
The Real Estate & Real Estate Appraisal program includes four areas of study:
- Real Estate
- Real Estate – Certified Residential Appraiser
- Real Estate – Licensed Real Estate Appraiser
- Real Estate – Residential Appraisal Apprentice
- Example Titles
- Residential or Commercial Real Estate Appraiser
- Art or Antique Appraiser
- Credit Analyst
- Insurance Adjuster
- Insurance Underwriter
- Tax Examiner
- Types of Employers
- Local and State Government Agencies
- Real Estate Appraisal Agencies
- Real Estate Agencies
- Banks and Credit Unions
Sure, the real estate market does better in strong economic times (commonly referred to as the “seller’s market”) but the demand for real estate services in an economic downturn (often referred to as the “buyer’s market”) will never fully go away. This reality means that the real estate professional will also be in demand. Plus, as long as governments tax property, they will need assessors to provide them with information.
Real Estate professionals:
- May work for banks, mortgage, and insurance companies
- Can be licensed as an appraiser
- Often have a bachelor's degree, but training varies
