If you are looking at Real Estate as a career, this is an exciting time for you! I want to help you get off to a great start in this new career. So here are a few things to consider when getting started:
- First, you are starting a small business. With any new business you will have start up costs. In my geographical area, you will need about $2000 “seed money” to get your career started. This includes attending Real Estate School for licensing, joining an office for your business, and buying a few signs and lock boxes. In the grand scheme of things, this is a very low entry fee into what can be a very lucrative career.
- Next, get with someone who can help you develop a plan to succeed in this business. It simply doesn’t make sense to run a business by the seat of your pants. Either you will control your time and money, or someone else will.
- Last, get into production fast! You will never know everything you need to know, or have everything in place to start your Real Estate business. Join a dynamic office, one with great training, and dive into your first deals. Often having a mentor and/or a coach can help alleviate any fears you may have of the unknown.
