Many people consider this job as something good because of its flexibility and because you can potentially earn a lot of money. These facts are true, and we cannot deny that, but there is a problem when it comes to earnings - you can never know the amount of money you will earn each month or year.
Like we said, you can earn a lot of money if you are lucky enough, but if we are talking about something that is more realistic, approximately you can earn around 39,000 US dollars a year.
That’s why a lot of people decide to do another job, and leave this one, or if they are ambitious and hardworking enough they will do both.
On the other hand you have real estate agents who work between forty and fifty hours a week, so their average income is little bit higher, it is around 54,000 US dollars a year. What is important for every real estate agent to know is that they must push themselves in order to achieve great success.
You don’t have a boss who is constantly watching over you, but that doesn’t have to mean that you shouldn’t work hard.
It is not difficult to become a real estate agent, all you have to do is pass a test, then you will get a license and only then you are able to work as an agent. First you will have to work for a broker, which is not anything scary.
You are simply their assistant, that doesn’t mean that you should do every single thing they tell you to do and when you finish with a broker, you can finally become a real estate agent.
