I worked for agencies large and small, and I can tell you that size matters! In a small agency, which did not get the exposure training, software tools or marketing of the big companies can offer. But do not let alone decided. Real estate is a business relationship. Most customers do not care what company you work for. More important for most people is the relationship with them, or the relationship you build with them. It can be a great success in any business of size, but in any case, there are some realities that need to be aware of ... The most important asset in real estate is listed. This is because a 10-hour day can take 10 lists, and hopefully 10 sales on the road, or it can show 10 houses to a buyer and hopefully get a sale. So the ads are high-value targets time management. They also have a downside. Every time I get a list, you have to spend their own money marketing. You'll have to buy a lock box, signs and make flyers. You may have to buy ads in magazines and other publications. You'll have to have your own website and business cards. On average, depending on the property, location and market conditions, can spend up to $ 2,000 the marketing of a property before, and if you ever paid for a sale. Working with buyers in the beginning is always a good idea, because although it requires more time, you only have to pay for gas and the occasional coffee or lunch with clients. The key to minimizing the time of purchase with buyers is asking good questions. In real estate, former teachers often do the most successful agents. This is mainly due to the fact that they are good at needs assessment and adopt a teaching approach with their customers. So before deciding to enter real estate as a profession, think about how I would spend as much as $ 5,000 before you pay, and begin to catalog the names, addresses, phone numbers and email addresses of everyone you know. These will be the first people notified of the new career and business and ask for references.
