Is NOW a good time to become a Real Estate Agent?

New Real Estate AgentsIf you are an individual who has considered getting into the Real Estate business, you have probably asked yourself a hundred times, if NOW is a good time to become a licensed Realtor. Everyone around you is probably telling you NO, but if you asked any successful Realtors, they would probably tell you different.

If you asked any successful Realtors they would tell you that NOW is in fact the perfect time to become an agent. How is this possible you might ask? Upon asking many successful Realtors if NOW would be a good time to become a Realtor, they would presumably tell you that if you can survive and make money in this market, when the market takes a turn for the better, you will reap the benefits of all the hard work you put in during the not so easy market.

Keep in mind, if you are considering getting into the market now, you will have to work much harder than you would, and you will have to affiliate yourself with a Company that can offer you the Management support, the training, and the high tech products and services that the Consumers want these days. As a new Agent, training and Broker Manager Support should be at the top of your list because this will be the key to your success.

Many of the agents, who have been in the Market since it was at its peak will most likely tell you to reconsider Real Estate and not get involved at this time. The truth is this market has taken a toll on these agents, causing a lot of them to give up, finding new careers or an easier ways of making money. Back in the 1990’s, it seemed like properties sold themselves, and agents just got buyers in the door, people would come to them. Now days, the agent has to seek out the client, put in actual work, so to speak. Most of them are not used to this, and just don’t put in the effort they should and consequently they end up out of the Business.

Being an agent takes a certain type of person. You have to keep a positive attitude no matter what kind of market it is. I know that becoming a Realtor in this Market can work for a new agent. Being educated on the market conditions and the high tech products and services that the Consumers want will help you to become a successful agent, if not now than when the Market picks up again. Hard work in this business really pays off, no matter how rocky the real estate market may be. Just like in a good market, you only get what you put into it.

Therefore, if you are considering becoming an agent, simply because you think it’s a lot of money, for so little work then now is not a good market for you. You have to be willing to put in the hard work in order for it to payoff the way you expect. Even in a good market, the harder you work, the more successful you will be. I often remind my Fellow Agents and Broker that Real Estate is the highest paying hard work and the lowest paying easy work.

The “Market” should never determine how successful you will be in any given market. Don’t let the media and all these news reports on the Market scare you. Take all the necessary training classes and speak with your Broker or Manager anytime you start to feel frustrated. If you work with the right Company you always have the support that you need right at your finger tips.

So the next time you ask yourself , if NOW is a good time to become a licensed Realtor, the answer to this question is YES! Take a chance and reap the benefits of this lucrative Business that we call Real Estate. I did!
