As an agent you will help clients purchase homes or sell them depending on your area of expertise. Sales agents help inform clients of market conditions and various home prices, trying to work within budgets and clients expectations. Agents start off working with a broker and after 1-3 years they can acquire a broker’s license of their own and have agents work for them if they choose.
Every day for sales agents is different. You work for yourself so you need to find clients to build relationships with. As a new agent building a client database is important to a successful career. Fortunately there are many helpful websites and software applications to help you along the way.
Real estate agents help clients buy, sell, and rent properties and work for a real estate broker. As a real estate broker you have the same responsibilities as a real estate sales agent, however, you can also have sales agents work under you and manage your own business.
Brokers with a team of sales agents under them generally stay in the office and evaluate agent performances. They prepare paperwork for sales and find new clients for their team while they’re out in the field.
Real estate agents make up their own work schedules and set their own hours. They work outside a lot of the time and get to help people find their dream homes for a living. There are many benefits to becoming a sales agent but it also takes a lot of hard work and discipline to find success being your own boss.
Each state has a required amount of pre-license education hours that need to be completed and passed before the state real estate license exam can be taken. Check with your state’s real estate department to find out exactly with is required of you to obtain your license.
Most agents have at least a high school degree and some have college degrees even though they are not required to get your license. However some people can skip the required pre-license education if they have a degree that is real estate focused.
The real estate industry generally does well with a healthy economy. And with the economy on the rebound, the real estate market is experiencing a comeback of its own. After years of stagnant home prices, confidence is returning to the market. Plus, with new home construction on the rise, there will be a higher demand for sales agents in the near future.
What a real estate agent makes depends on a variety of circumstances. Where you live, the state of the economy, interest rates, your own work ethics are just a few things that can influence a real estate sales agent’s salary.
For instance in 2014 the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) stated that the median wage for sales agents was just over $40,00 a year but the top ten percent of earners making more than $105,000 a year.* So it’s important to know which areas are more profitable than others. Cities with faster growing populations are more profitable than those in decline; however they also attract more sales agents as well.
To become a sales agent, you must be at least 18 years old with a clean criminal background record, take and complete pre-license courses and then pass a state exam. Check with your state’s regulatory commission to find out your exact requirements as each state has their own rules and regulations.
