Real Estate CPE and CRESAR: Why It’s Worth It

If you’re preparing for the PRC Real Estate Brokers Licensure Exams slated for March 27, 2011 you’ve probably asked around about CPE seminars or Comprehensive Real Estate Seminar and Review or CRESAR sessions.

You might have gotten surprised by the P20,000 fee being charged by some CRESAR providers.

Well, it’s worth it. Here’s why…

Based on the RESA Law IRR (RA 9646), future REB exam takers will be required to take a BS degree course in Real Estate Management (BS REM) or Real Estate Service (BS RES). For now, however, you just need to be a graduate of a relevant 4-year college course, because the real estate courses are not yet available.

Ask yourself this: Will people who go through a 4-year college course and earn a BS degree in REM or RES spend only P20,000?

Yet here is your opportunity to gain 120 hours of real estate training via a P20,000 CRESAR. Are you going to take this opportunity?

Let’s assume you become a licensed real estate broker and have a real estate salesperson under you. If that salesperson successfully sells a P2.0 million house and lot package, he or she will earn 2.5% (or P50,000).

You will also earn P50,000 even if it was your salesperson who did the flyering and site tripping, assuming the real estate property developer gives a 5% commission (which you split between you and your real estate sales agent).

Ask yourself this: How long do you think it will take you to earn that P50,000?

If you are serious about real estate, it is reasonable to assume that you and your real estate salesperson can sell at least one house and lot package worth P2.0 million within 12 months.

Now, do you see why an investment of P20,000 in a CRESAR is worth it?

Yet if you hesitate to shell out the P5,000 initial downpayment for most CRESARs, then go ahead and try the highly affordable RESAR Online Review.

You will gain knowledge in the areas of Philippine real estate and related laws, plus you will be able to prepare yourself more. This way, when you go and actually attend the face-to-face CRESAR, you will be able to easily follow what the CRESAR speaker is talking about.

Are you entrepreneurial? Do you have the “make money grow” mindset?

Do you have what it takes to become a successful real estate broker? Is the Philippine real estate industry really for you?

Are you willing to put in the time to read, learn, and train so that you become a professional real estate broker who can serve Philippine real estate property buyers well?

Seryoso po ba kayo sa real estate career ninyo?

Or are you just playing around?

Find out today. Join the affordable RESAR Online Review for only P1,980 (as of December 9, 2010) and quickly discover for yourself if becoming a licensed real estate broker is truly for you.

    Good day! I’m from Batangas and wanted to take the Broker’s exam next year. I just want to ask where can i have my review? and will also be asking on how will i be able to contact you. Thanks.

    [From the Admin] We’ve heard about CRESAR sessions being offered in Makati, Quezon City, Mandaluyong City, Cebu City, and even Davao City.

    Perhaps you would get in touch with the association of realtors in Batangas and request that they organize a CRESAR for aspiring real estate brokers in your area?

    I would like to get into real estate but I have zero experience and background. I was thinking that taking the class and the exam could be my first step in this industry. Then maybe later on have myself affiliated with a developer so ill learn the ropes.

    Do you think I really need to take exam and be licensed at this point? Or should just I take it after I have gained enough experience? The thing is, I’ve been reading that real estate will be a course already. Will this be implemented next year? If so, that means this year is my only chance, right?

    I hope you can give me some answers.

    [From the Admin] Assuming a four-year course in BS Real Estate Management or Real Estate Service is available starting June 2011, that means the first batch of BS REM/RES graduates will complete their course in March 2015.

    We don’t know how many more Real Estate Brokers’ Licensure Exams the PRC will conduct between March 27, 2011 and March 2015.

    Do you really need to be licensed at this point?

    It depends on your goals.

    Do you want to gain experience in selling real estate? Then you can simply get accredited by the PRC as a real estate salesperson. You won’t have to take an exam, but you can go ahead and join a property developer and gain sales experience.

    PRC accreditation, however, requires that you get 120 hours of training in real estate brokerage.

    If you can invest 120 hours of your life in real estate training, then why not attend a 120-hour CRESAR (for aspiring real estate brokers), and go ahead and take and pass the March 2011 real estate brokers’ exam?

    True, there is some amount of investment involved, as CRESARs can cost anywhere from P12,500 to P22,500.

    But in terms of time (e.g., 120 hours), if you become an accredited real estate salesperson in 2011, and then in 2013 decide to become a real estate broker, you will need to get another 120 credits in real estate brokerage.

    Our recommendation: Do a bit more soul-searching and ask yourself what it is that you truly want to achieve.

    Become a licensed real estate broker if you want to:
    * Work with, train, and develop real estate salespersons
    * Network with other licensed professional real estate brokers
    * Serve Philippine real estate property buyers well
    * Learn to sell other types of property (aside from the usual condo units and house and lot packages)
    * Work with people handling rent-to-own real estate deals

    Become a real estate salesperson if you want to:
    * Gain experience in project selling (e.g., condos, house and lot)
    * Gain firsthand experience in handling different types of buyers
    * Learn real estate marketing at the grassroots level
    * Do saturation drives, mall flyering, site manning
    * Become streetsmart in real estate
    * See the world from the point of view of real estate sales agents
