Is it worth to become RE agent if I am RE investor?

1 Reply

Helloo everyone,

RE classes starts soon, and I am trying to figure it out what to do. Are real estate classes help to become a better investor? Are they help in future investing? Are they help at all or to take it it's just a waste of time and money? 

My husband and I finally own 4 unit rental property, we are very new in this business, but we were not new in dreaming to own one, and our dream came true in Nov. 2017 It took a long time to wait to get the opportunity to finally buy the property (using cash out re-financing), but when we were ready for it took us  only 2 month to find and buy the right property. We are happy and of course we understand the risk we took. I am motivated and want to take RE classes and work for an agency, not as an agent (I work on my English), but need work in RE office and be part of this world. I like to be agent later on. Or maybe there are better options besides RE license.  Please for any advice investors and agents.  Thank you!!!

Hi Lena, I don;t quite understand what you mean by "I am motivated and want to take RE classes and work for an agency, not as an agent (I work on my English), but need work in RE office and be part of this world"

This isn't my personal experience but what I have been told as someone about to enter into classes to get my license is that it is a lot of information unrelated to being successful. Things like the history of real estate. Maybe interesting info but not helpful. Many investors get a license so they can cut sales costs and I think that is the main motivation.
