How to Become a Real Estate Agent?
The reasons someone might be interested in how to become a real estate agent are plentiful. The potential of a hefty payday combined with a flexible schedule is certainly enticing -- and if you're a people person, you'll never feel more at home.
But don't be fooled by glitzy reality shows about Realtors selling giant houses and making easy millions. Real estate agents are essentially self-employed, and often put in a ton of work and training (not to mention their own money) to succeed. Combine the cost of classes, exams, business cards and advertising and new agents can easily spend up to $2,000 in just their first year.
