Being a Realtor in 2017:
Today’s busy real estate market means more opportunities to build lasting client relationships and people skills, as well as the chance to use the latest technology and marketing trends to grow your business and increase your reach into your community.
A career in real estate also gives you a flexible schedule, allowing you to be there when family needs you, explore other interests, or volunteer with an organization. You’ll be able to put in the hours you need to be successful, but on a more unconventional schedule that seems to suit life in 2017 better than a rigid 8-5 job.
As a real estate agent, you’ll help people buy, sell or rent property.
You will likely work with both buyers and sellers, navigating them through the complexities of a real estate transaction.
You’ll chat with buyers to find out the details of what kind of property they want, then find and show them properties that match their criteria. You’ll help negotiate the price and the final deal, as well as be there with the client at closing.
When acting as agent for sellers, you’ll help them arrive at the ideal asking price for their market, then list the property. You’ll navigate offers on the home and finalize the contract, as well as be there for closing.
You’ll use websites, social media, photography, video and other technology to put your listings in the best light.
Working as a real estate agent, you can expect some night and weekend hours, showing properties to customers, setting up open houses and having conversations outside of normal business hours.
You’ll want to learn all you can about your particular market and area neighborhoods. Your clients will look to you to answer questions and concerns about things like school districts, zoning, roads, commute times and community services.
An entrepreneurial spirit, the desire to own your own business, and the drive to succeed.
