The new web-based version of the North Carolina Real Estate Manual is now available!
The Commission publishes the Real Estate Manual for brokers and the public to use as a practical guide for real estate concepts and brokerage practice. Also, it is the required textbook for Postlicensing courses. Individuals who take Postlicensing courses are required to have a current edition of the Real Estate Manual with them during all class sessions, either in print or electronic form.
The new version of the Real Estate Manual is web-based, making it more accessible and user-friendly. Features of the new version include: comic strips that display brokerage activities and examples of agency relationships between brokers and clients, self-check assessments, informative graphics, keyword searches, quick access to Postlicensing course content, and a database of sample contract forms.
The new web-based Real Estate Manual will be updated on a real-time basis. When laws, rules, and/or forms change, the Real Estate Manual will be updated immediately to reflect the changes. As a result, users will always have an up-to-date resource.
