Are you looking to claim a realestate license for yourself? If so, there are several things that you need to keep in mind. First, each state has different requirements that you will have to complete in order to get your realestate license. For the typical state, you are going to have to complete some pre-licensing education, submit an application, pass an exam, pay some fees, and get sponsorship via a licensed real estate broker in your state.
And though this may seem like a lot to undertake, many states aren’t that bad when it comes to the education part of getting your license. Many states require less than 100 hours of pre-licensing education in order to meet the minimum necessary for licensure.
Once you do obtain your license, you will have some state required continuing education that you will have to complete. This generally is a little heavier in the first year or two of licensure, and then usually just once every two years or so after that.
So let me encourage you to go after your realestate license. It could be the best thing that ever happened to your career. Just think about getting that 6% commission. If you are a good schmoozer, you might even be able to convince your broker to let you have all of the first deal or two, and even if you sold your first house for only $125,000, you would be looking at a check of up to $7,500 (assuming you find the buyer, and act as an intermediary on the deal).
So again, if you are looking to make a change in your life toward real estate, then get started right away! There is plenty of money in real estate for someone who will take chance, and do a little work…I have made thousands of dollars in this business, and I only do it part time!
