More Info

More Info

Updated for 2021 with the latest content & forms in the state of California, Real Estate Principles covers the key information related to agency, disclosure, contracts, and more. The substantial changes that were made in edition 10.1 of this book stand in this, the 11th edition: The chapter titled “A Career in Real Estate” remains at the front of the book, so the many natural questions students have about the licensing process can be answered early, allowing for better focus on the subsequent lessons. Mathematics no longer represents a complete chapter in the main body of the text but resides in Appendix A because the Department of Real Estate has begun to place less emphasis on the subject. (Some students have reported seeing one or even no math questions on the state exam!) The total number of chapters remains at 15 as “Real Estate Disclosures” and “Real Estate Contracts” are each chapters of their own when once they were combined. It is important to give ample time to these topics as about half of the questions on the Real Estate Exam are devoted to agency, disclosures, and contracts. The subjects of agency, disclosures, and contracts are presented sequentially in the text because there is considerable overlap on these topics. To improve readability of the chapter text, provided sample forms of two pages or greater have been moved to chapter appendices.

In applying for the real estate broker or salesperson examination, evidence of completion (i.e. transcripts) of the statutory courses in out-of-state institutions is acceptable if the institution is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges or a comparable regional accrediting entity, and each course counts as three semester-units of credit or four quarter-units of credit. Courses completed through foreign institutions of higher learning must be evaluated by a foreign credentials evaluation service approved by the California Department of Real Estate.

Unless prior approval has been granted by the California Real Estate Commissioner, no private vocational real estate school outside the State of California may grant credit for the required pre-license courses. Out-of-state residents must file a Consent to Service of Process with the California Department of Real Estate. This form must be completed, signed, notarized and submitted to the California Department of Real Estate with the original or renewal application.

Brokers must maintain a California business address if engaging in business in California. If not engaging in business in California, brokers must also file an Out-of-State Broker Acknowledgment. 

Salespersons must be licensed with a California broker if engaging in business in California.

Applicants for a California real estate license must submit one set of classifiable fingerprints, acceptable to the State Department of Justice (DOJ). Applicants who reside outside of California must submit their fingerprints directly to the California Department of Real Estate. A fingerprint card (FBI Applicant FD-258 Rev 3/10) will be provided to all out-of-state applicants with the original license application. It should be taken to a local law enforcement agency for completion. The appropriate fingerprint fee must be submitted to the California Department of Real Estate with the completed fingerprint card, original license application, and license fee.

California Continuing Education (CE) and License Renewal Requirements:

California real estate licenses must be renewed every four years from the date on the license.
