Regardless of how big or well-qualified a broker you sign on with, the fact is that starting in the real estate business means effectively that you are starting your own business!

  • Real estate school
  • Testing
  • Licensing fees
  • Fingerprinting (even if you have been fingerprinted in the past)
  • MLS setup fees
  • Necessary computer hardware and software
  • Local and national industry organization fees
  • Web design/maintenance/SEO
  • Database management
  • Graphic design
  • Blog platform
  • Offline advertising
  • Business cards, postcards, flyers, car decals
  • For Sale & Open House Signs
  • Office rental fees
  • Phone service
  • Support staff
  • Automobile upkeep, insurance, and fuel
  • Transaction fees
  • Networking and business development
  • Continuing education

 

Becoming a Real Estate agent is not a job to undertake lightly. You want to make sure you've budgeted appropriately, and that you are fully committed to the investment in your success. An unfortunate number of promising real estate careers die a quick death for lack of proper planning and cash flow.
