The first ever online real-estate exam, known as the Palm Beach Real Estate Exam, was created by Palm Beach’s real estate board to assist potential home buyers with the process of buying and selling a home.
The exam has been available since the fall of 2016, but has only recently been offered for free to anyone in Palm Beach County.
The program’s online course is free, and it’s still one of the top real estate exams out there.
The company also offered an app for iOS and Android devices for those who want to learn the ins and outs of the process.
The app, which launched in 2016, lets you download an exam guide and set your own test schedule.
You can also purchase a $50 exam keycard for $1.99.
The Palm Beach Exam website states that the program is “designed to help people find the right real estate agent, appraiser, real estate broker, or other professional for the job, and is not an endorsement of any particular agent or firm.”
The Palm Beaches real estate firm, CIM Group, says it offers the exam to people with limited financial means, who want a quick and easy way to get a feel for the process, but want to get into real estate without spending $5,000 on an expensive, two-week course.
The online course has been offered by the Palm Beachers real estate agency for more than a decade, and there’s no indication it will ever be discontinued.
Palm Beach real estate is one of many markets in the US that have implemented the exam, and the company says it has helped more than 2 million potential homebuyers get into their homes this year.
The real estate boards website says that its “previous three-month online realestate exam has seen nearly 500,000 new applicants, and more than 3 million properties purchased.”
“We’re excited to continue this work with the PalmBeachReal Estate Exam,” CIM’s founder, David Karras, said in a statement.
“This program has been a key part of our local real estate industry for years, and we think this is an important way to help our community become more informed.”
A new study released Tuesday from the Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis finds that real estate sales in California have dropped in recent years and have plateaued.
The Reserve Bank researchers found that the average price of a single-family home fell 3.7 percent between 2014 and 2016.
That’s not a great sign for buyers, but it’s also not a big jump from the 8.3 percent decline experienced in 2015.
The study found that median household incomes have been rising since 2010, and a recent report by the Federal Housing Finance Agency found that many homeowners are struggling with high interest rates.
The California Department of Finance says it’s looking at several policies to address housing affordability, including the availability of tax credits to help borrowers make payments on home loans.
A state official said that the State Housing Finance Authority (SHFA) would release a report this week showing what policies have been enacted to address the housing affordability crisis in California.
