The exam consists of 100 multiple-choice questions that cover all aspects of residential real estate sales, including finding buyers for homes on the market; negotiating contracts with buyers; understanding residential financing options; marketing properties online and offline (including social media); building rapport with prospective clients based on shared interests or hobbies. You will also have opportunities to demonstrate your knowledge about other topics related to real estate, such as insurance policies for homeowners or renters insurance policies for homeowners who live alone or with others who are not connected by blood ties only but can provide proof that they have been living together since before marriage was recognized in this state).

The cost of taking this exam varies depending on where you live in New York State. Still, it ranges anywhere from $300-$1000 per person depending on how many attempts they make before passing their first attempt at becoming licensed agents once again after failing so many times already!

How to take the NY Real Estate Exam

You must bring a valid photo ID to register for the test and your birth certificate or passport if you’re under 18 years old (a parent or guardian can also provide this documentation). You’ll need to bring along any documents related to your education that prove that you completed college-level courses in real estate law and finance within two years of taking this exam—this includes transcripts from colleges and universities where you received such training; CLEP/DSST exams; professional certifications; membership in state and national associations related to real estate law; etcetera.

The material on which questions are based varies depending on whether they’re written by Pearson VUE employees or contractors working independently—but most often, it revolves around basic concepts like contract law, appraisal methods (including comps), and different types of financing options available for home sales transactions including conventional mortgages versus Fannie Mae loans versus VA loans.
