#1) Real Estate is Flexible
Real estate is flexible, especially compared to other careers. Many brokerages allow agents to set their own schedules. Sometimes agents can even work from home! Flexibility is a major draw when it comes to real estate as a career.
#2) Real Estate is Relatively Fast to Get Into
(When Compared to other Careers)
If you aren’t interested in investing years of your life in college, real estate can be a great option. Real estate agents are trained, and they are knowledgeable in their area, but it doesn’t take four+ years to get to a place where you’re confident you are knowledgeable about the day in and day out the business. Real estate is a specialized career, and real estate agents are specialists in their field.
#3) Real Estate is Profitable
Real estate agents have the chance to go where their hard work takes them. Money can be made in real estate if the agent is willing to put in hard work and time. Building connections is a huge part of real estate, and building connections can take time, but in the end, the payoff can be great!
#4) Real Estate Agents are Part of Major Life Events
Buying a house is a major step in people’s lives. It’s an exciting time, and when the process is finally over, the people you help are often thrilled to be moving into their new homes. Being a part of such a major life event is incredibly rewarding, and many people who get into real estate for other reasons stay in real estate because of how rewarding it really is.
#5) Real Estate Agents Meet New People Every Day
Real estate agents are constantly meeting new people. Helping someone buy or sell their home creates a relationship. Most real estate agents you meet know someone you know just because of the nature of the job. Real estate is a great career if you want to foster connection with others within your community. Outgoing people who already have some connections within the community make great real estate agents!
#6) It Allows You to be a Part of a Team
Going into real estate is a great way to join a team. Our team, Professional Real Estate Group, loves welcoming new agents, and we love to help show new real estate agents the ropes. It can be rewarding to be a part of something larger than yourself, and real estate can offer that!
