Is a Real Estate Career for you?

PROS VS CONS

 


Getting Started in a Real Estate Career is Quick and Painless

Pros: In California, you are required to complete the required training (link) with a passing grade of 60%, Apply for the CalBRE exam and license and you are now a licensed Real Estate Agent in California.   The best part is with School of Real Estate you can get this done is less than 90 days!

Cons: The not so easy and painless part is time, money and effort.  You will have to invest a lot of time in building your career.  There are also no guarantees. You get back what you put in.  Invest time and effort into your career and you will reap the rewards in the future.

You are your own Boss!!!!

Pros: Being your own boss is one of the most rewarding factors in this career. You have full control of your time, money, and effort.  YOU control your business and YOU make the decisions. 

Cons: You are an independent contractor! This means you are in charge of building your client list, your leads, networking, marketing and managing day to day office needs.  It’s all in your hands and putting in the effort will make you a successful real estate agent.

Real Estate Agents Make a Great Income

Pros: Your income is NOT limited by an hourly wage.  Your income is largely dictated by the amount of time you invest!  Growing your real estate business by adding other real estate agents and license yourself to build your own brokerage!  The growth potential is unlimited! Reach for the Sky!

Cons: You will need to invest in an education and the School of Real Estate is here to assist you with starting your career.  At first, there will be no cash flow.  Most agents need a nest egg to begin their careers.  Getting your first sale to come in will take some time and it might take a couple of months. 

Real Estate Agents Work Flexible Schedules

Pros:  Real Estate Agents do not have a set schedule.  This is not a 9 to 5 job.  You set your day based on your workload and schedule.  Real Estate is all about socializing, meeting people and building your network!

Cons: Flexible schedule also means no schedule.  You work on the client’s needs and schedule.  This is a 24/7 job.  In Real Estate, you work when everyone else is not.  That especially means weekends including home visits, open houses and viewings.  If a client calls, you should always be available and attentive to their needs. The School of Real Estate also has a flexible schedule for classes.  We provide morning and evening classes to assist every student’s needs

 


You are helping them make a major Life Decision & Largest Transaction

Pros: As their agent, client’s have chosen you when making this life decision when investing in their home or selling their home.  It is an exciting time for both buyers and sellers and they look to you as the expert and trust you in managing their way through this process.  Providing excellent client service and having client’s trust you should be your #1 priority.

Cons: STRESS!  Real Estate transactions are stressful at times for a client and agent. You will need to prepare yourself mentally when things don’t go as planned.  Be confident in your knowledge and skills to overcome these speed bumps.  Word of Mouth spreads quickly whether it be positive or negatively.  This can affect your referral network so take care of it and always be ready to mend a bad situation.

In conclusion, Real Estate is a Great Business!  This information is an honest look at the real estate business from both sides.   In any career, there are pros and cons and Real Estate has a lot of pros and is a very rewarding career!  As long as you work hard, motivate yourself, expand your social network you will have a successful career in Real Estate!
