I'm contemplating on becoming a realtor or not. What are the real advantages and is there any disadvantages or is it ever worth it.
Are the majority of people on bigger pockets a realtor? Just closed on my 1st deal 8 months ago looking to get about a house a year. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated
Yes, I'm also a Realtor. And I advise all of my students to become Realtors. Too many advantages to list. A quick search here on the forums will give you TONS of discussion on the topic.
Depends on what else you have going on!
I didn't get my license until i had been investing for 7 years. Now I'm a broker and ready to stop helping buyer 's & seller's. It is a lot of work and unless you want that to be your lifelong career I don't think it is worth it. Maintaing a license under your own company sure, if you need it!
Starting out, I would focus on investing and not agency.
thank you guys for the responses it helps out a bunch
