Getting Real Estate License to help jumpstart investing career

2 Replies

I've always thought that being a real estate agent would be a great way to understand the industry more and get your feet wet in the investing world by helping others purchase rental properties. This would help you gain knowledge of the working of a deal so by the time you are ready to invest, you won't be totally in the dark. I know it's not a necessity to be a real estate agent in order to invest but I was wondering if it would be worth my time and effort to go ahead go for it. I am currently a student who is lacking the capital to invest so it seems like the perfect move not only to learn but possibly earn a little extra money.
@Blaine Alger In my opinion most people who want to be investors who become agents to start isn’t worth it. Most agents make no money they’re first year
