Things to Know Before Considering A Part-Time Job as an Agent

Have you considered beginning a career as a part-time agent? Here is some advice to help you make your decision.

Real estate can be very tempting to get into, but a lot of people are ready to give up their regular salary to take a chance on a new career. For some, a dual career can help make the transition, but it can be challenging. But with an experienced, supportive broker, it can be a good fit.

Finding Time

It is important to find a balance between your full-time job and your career in real estate. You may have to get up early to get some market research done before you leave. You can use the weekends to go to open houses and make showing appointments in the evening. If your full-time job is real estate related, this can help you in making sure that your skills are sharp. Just make sure you are not violating any rules.

Mental Health

Take time to yourself and realize that you are not going to build your business right away. It is possible to have both jobs, but it can be hard to see other agents that are full-time getting a lot of business. Realize that your time will come.

A Supportive Brokerage

When interviewing brokerages, make sure you find one that will take you seriously. Ask about what type of virtual offerings they may offer, such as training that might be recorded for later viewings. It is important to find a brokerage that will be willing and accepting of your position.

Be Flexible

Sometimes it takes time to figure out a strategy that works best for you. If you’re struggling, it might be time to change how you do something to see if you can find a new way that might be better. Make sure to focus on what will give you the highest return on your investment both monetarily and with your time.

Don’t Sacrifice Your Full-time Income

Do not sacrifice your income if you are not in a position that you can take the risk. It is ok to take a step back if needed. You can also network with the agents in your brokerage to have a backup for when you can’t make a showing. Always have a backup plan if you need to focus on your full-time career.

Being a part-time agent can be difficult, but it is not impossible. Make sure you find what works best for you and stick with it, but not at the expense of your income. Find a brokerage that will be there for you in the decisions you make.
