Here are a few tips on how to get into the real estate industry:
1. Sellers Agent
You can become a real estate agent, and be mostly a seller’s agent. The seller’s agent helps their client by providing knowledge on the most effective way to sell their property. For example: running comparables of recently sold properties to know how to price the home, staging the property to make it more attractive to the public, and finding any way possible to attract buyers to the property.
Another way to get into the industry is by becoming an investor. Investing in purchasing properties, and renting them out is a way of not only getting into real estate, but also helping the investor obtain financial freedom. Another great way to invest in purchasing property and doing short-term rentals like Airbnb for example is where the interested party stays at the property by paying a daily rate Vs a month-to-month lease.
This will consist of the real estate agent taking the client out to help them purchase or rent a property. If being in the comfort of an office is more suitable for you, becoming a loan officer is also in the industry of real estate. Loan officers help their clients through their entire process of purchasing: or refinancing their homes. They also provide valuable knowledge to their clients, to help them make the best decision when it comes to their home.
