How Much Does It Cost to Become a Real Estate Agent in Virginia?

Costs Prior to Getting Your Virginia Real Estate License

Salesperson License - Approximately $

Let’s talk about the Virginia salesperson real estate license first. This is the license for those just starting out as a real estate agent and qualifies you to work for a licensed real estate broker.

  • hour salesperson’s pre-license course: This varies by provider, but Aceable, for example, costs $
  • Virginia real estate license exam: $60
  • Fingerprinting and background check: $52
  • License application fee: $

If you were to take Aceable’s salesperson’s pre-license course, pre-licensing costs altogether would run you about $

Broker’s License - Approximately $1,

Say you’ve been working as a salesperson for a while, and you’re ready to take the next step as a Virginia real estate agent. You’ll want to get a broker’s license, which qualifies you to run transactions on your own and to supervise salespersons and associate brokers.

  • hour broker’s pre-license coursework. Broker applicants must pass a Real Estate Brokerage course, as well as the three broker-specific courses of Real Estate Appraisal, Real Estate Finance, and Real Estate Law OR two of these broker-specific courses and a broker-related course (options include Real Estate Contract Law, Real Estate Math, Real Estate Property Management, and many more!). To satisfy the broker education requirement, you can take broker courses that are approved by another state. Or, you can get your education hours at an accredited college, university, or community college. It’s hard to put a cost on the hour broker coursework since the ways to fulfill it vary so much, but a good estimate for the entire hours would be about $
  • Virginia real estate license exam: $60
  • Fingerprinting and background check: $52
  • License application fee: $

Total pre-licensing costs for a broker would be in the ballpark of $1,

Costs After Getting Your Virginia Real Estate License - Varies

Once you have either your salesperson or broker’s license, there are some maintenance fees to consider as a real estate agent:

  • Realtor Association fees: You don’t have to belong to NAR or VAR, but if you do, the costs for both together will equal about $ per year, plus initial application fees of about $
  • MLS fees: The cost to belong to a multiple listing service (or MLS) costs about $65/month.
  • Lockbox and card fees: Runs around $
  • License renewal fee: $65 every two years for a salesperson; $80 for a broker.
  • Continuing education (CE): After your first year as a salesperson, you’ll need to take 30 hours of CE. After that, you have to take 16 hours of CE per two-year renewal period. Brokers have to take 24 hours of CE per two-year renewal period. CE costs will vary widely.
  • Company and brokerage fees: Varies widely. This could be anywhere from $$/month.

How to Get a Virginia Real Estate License

Virginia Real Estate License Requirements

Step #1
First, you must complete the hour pre-licensing course.
At the end of the course is a proctored final exam. Once you pass the proctored final exam, you will earn your Certificate of Completion for the course.

Meanwhile, the school will notify the PSI testing center (the testing center for the State exam) that you have completed the course.

Step #2
Once you complete the course and pass the proctored final exam, you are now ready to move on to Step #2… scheduling and passing the State exam.

The State exam is a proctored exam that must be taken at one of the State approved PSI testing centers.

The State exam consists of two portions: (1) National portion and (2) State portion. The National portion consists of 80 questions with a time-limit of minutes. You must answer 56 out of 80 questions correctly (70%) in order to pass. The State portion consists of 40 questions with a time-limit of 45 minutes. You must answer 30 out of 40 questions correctly (75%) correctly in order to pass.

You must pass both portions of the exam in order to pass the overall exam.

You can register and schedule your state exam online through PSI's website.

Your exam scores are valid for one year, meaning you must apply for your license within one year of your initial examination date.

Step #3
After you pass the state exam, you must get your fingerprints taken. Your fingerprints will be used to conduct a background check.

You must get your fingerprints taken at a PSI testing location. Most students simply get their fingerprints taken after completing the state exam.

Your fingerprints are valid for 45 days from the day the Real Estate Board receives your background check to the day they receive your license application.

Step #4
The final step is to complete and submit your Virginia real estate salesperson license application. You will have to mail in your completed application along with the required application fee.
If you have a sponsoring broker you can apply for an active Virginia real estate license. If you don't have a sponsoring broker, you can still obtain an inactive license.
Once your application is approved, your license will be mailed to your sponsoring broker (if you applied for an active license), or to your home address (if you applied for an inactive license).

Congratulations, you are now a licensed Virginia real estate salesperson!

Additional requirements:

  • You must be at least 18 years of age.
  • You must hold a high school diploma (or its equivalent)

Quick Reference Guide | How to Apply for a Salesperson/Broker License

What is a REALTOR®?

A REALTOR® is a licensed real estate agent (salesperson or broker) who is also a member of the National Association of REALTORS®, a private professional organization.

The Real Estate Board licenses real estate salespersons, brokers, and firms. The decision to join any professional association is voluntary and unrelated to state licensure.

State law requires a license to practice real estate, but does not require any licensee be a REALTOR®.

How do I contact the Board office?

You may reach us by phone at  (Licensing Section) or  (Education Section), by FAXat , or by e-mail at [email protected] Additionally, if you have information that you would like to mail to the Board, please send it to:
Real Estate Board
Department of Professional and Occupational Regulation
Mayland Drive, Suite
Richmond, VA

The Board members do not work in the Board office. They come into the Board offices for Board meetings and hearings, but are not here on a daily basis. Board office staff members can answer your questions and are trained to process all information that comes into the Board office. Please do not contact Board members directly.

What are the qualifications for licensure by exam?

Salespersons must complete a hour course ("Principles of Real Estate") and pass the State and National portions of the salesperson examination. Brokers must complete hours of required broker-specific and broker-related courses, pass the State and National Portions of the broker examination, and submit verification of experience (actively engaged as a salesperson for 36 out of the 48 months preceding application for licensure). Also see Quick Reference Guide to Licensure.

What are the broker education requirements?

A total of classroom hours of Board-approved courses is required. Proof of passing the course and a monitored final examination are required for course approval. You must complete at least three courses from the broker-specific courses below. One of the three must be a classroom hour real estate brokerage course.

Broker-specific Courses:

The remaining hours may be broker-related courses.

Broker-related Courses:

Note: The maximum allowable credit for a single broker-specific course is 60 hours, and 45 hours for a single broker-related course. Any principles of real estate course taken to meet the salesperson education requirement is not acceptable to meet the broker education requirement.

I am licensed in another state and wish to become licensed in Virginia. Can I apply through reciprocity?

Yes. Applicants for a salesperson license must (1) pass the State portion of the examination, (2) submit verification of completion of a 60 hour course called "Principles of Real Estate" and (3) submit letters of certification from other jurisdictions where licensed. Also, in order to apply through reciprocity, the salesperson MUST hold a current salesperson license in another state.

Applicants for a broker license must (1) pass the State portion of the examination, (2) submit verification of experience (actively engaged as a salesperson or broker for 36 out of 48 months preceding application for licensure), (3) submit original transcripts or certified copies of transcripts from the educational institution where the applicant completed classroom hours of broker pre-licensing courses substantially equivalent to Virginia's real estate education requirements, and (4) submit letters of certification from other jurisdictions where licensed. Also, in order to apply through reciprocity, the broker MUST hold a current broker license in another state.

How do I apply for the examination?

Contact the Board's examination vendor, PSI ().

I am licensed in Virginia, and applying for licensure in another state.The other state is requesting verification of my Virginia license. What do I need to do?

Please complete the Certification Request Form (PDF) and send it with a check for $, made payable to the Treasurer of Virginia. Specify where you would like the certification to be mailed.

My license is on inactive status. Do I still need to renew? 

Yes, an inactive license must be renewed. The renewal fee is the same, however,an inactive licensee is not required to meet the continuing education requirements.

NOTE:All salespersons (active or inactive) renewing their licenses for the first time must complete 30 hours of post-license education (instead of continuing education).

How do I go about filing a complaint against a real estate licensee?

If you have a complaint about a licensed real estate salesperson, broker, or firm, first try to settle it with management. If you cannot resolve the issue, you may file a report with the Regulatory Programs and Compliance Section.

I need to renew my license, but I haven't received my renewal form. What do I need to do?

No earlier than 60 days prior to your license expiration, send in the renewal fee, make checks payable to the Treasurer of Virginia, and include your registration number on your check. Please note that if you wish to renew on active status, you must meet the education requirements. If you have had a change of address, include a letter with your new address. Mail this information to:
Real Estate Board
Department of Professional & Occupational Regulation
Mayland Drive, Suite
Richmond, VA

You CANNOT continue to practice in Virginia after your license has expired or if your license is on inactive status.

My renewal payment was one day late and I have always paid on time. Can you waive the late fee?

No. Board regulations provide a day period after the expiration date in which a license may be renewed without penalty (therefore, your payment is actually 31 days late). Staff cannot waive the fee.

Regulations state that if the requirements for renewal of a license, including receipt of the fee by the board, are not complete within 30 days of the expiration date, a reinstatement fee is required.

Once your license expires, you no longer have a license to practice real estate. The day period is not a license extension, but only an additional 30 days to complete your education and submit payment without having to pay the reinstatement fee.

I did not renew on time because I didn't receive my renewal card. Do I still have to pay a late fee or reinstate my license?

Yes. Board regulations state that failure to receive the renewal notice does not relieve the licensee of the obligation to renew.

Does the Board office use the date of receipt or the postmark date to determine whether an application or renewal was received on time?

The date the application or renewal was received in the agency determines whether it is on time, not the postmark date. If the renewal fee is received after the due date, you will be required to pay the reinstatement fee. If the reinstatement fee is received after the due date, you will be required to reapply for licensure, meeting all current requirements.

My address and/or name has changed. What do I need to do to notify the Board?

Many Boards allow you to update your ADDRESS using Online Services, so login to your personal profile to see if this is an option for your license type. The alternative is to complete, print, sign, and submit an Address Change Form to the Board office by mail. Unless updated online, all Address Change Forms must be received by the Board in writing. When providing a post office box as the mailing address, it must be accompanied by the physical address.

To report a NAME CHANGE: complete, print, sign, and submit a Name Change Form to the Board office. All name changes must be received by the Board in writing. Individual name change requests must be accompanied by a copy of a marriage certificate, divorce decree, court order, or other official documentation that verifies the name change.

How much time are you given to take the 60 hour online study course to prepare for the state exam ? is there an extension fee ?

Asked by: Cgear

You have six months from registration to complete the course.Most students are able to complete in less time so they still have access to the course while preparing for the state licensing exam. Should you need an extension, prices range from $35 - 60 depending on how much additional time you need.
