Real Estate Needs Survey, Fall 1979.
Johnson County Community Coll., Overland Park, KS.
In light of recent legislation specifying minimum educational requirements for the renewal of real estate licenses for brokers and salespersons in Kansas, Johnson County Community College conducted a survey of community needs for real estate education. The survey instrument, which was distributed by the Johnson County Board of Realtors to its members, focused on interest in an associate degree (A.A.) in real estate and in specific courses, scheduling preferences, and interest in college credit for courses and/or Kansas Real Estate Commission (KREC) approval. Survey findings, based upon 206 returned questionnaires, include the following: (1) 65.7% of the respondents expressed interest in an A.A.; (2) of the eight courses specified in the questionnaire, courses in Finance, Appraisals, Laws Relating to Real Estate, and Contracts received the greatest interest; (3) respondents were interested in taking an average of 4.5 courses; (4) 68% wanted both college credit and KREC approval for courses; (5) respondents indicated a preference for courses taught from November through February, once a week (not on Friday or Saturday), beginning at 6:00 or 7:00 p.m. The questionnaire and several data tables are included in the study report.
