Great Part-time jobs for new full-time RE agents/ RE Investors

5 Replies

Good Afternoon BP!

 My name is Shelby and I am new to the BP community. I hope to learn a great deal from interacting with many current investors out there. I am currently working in the financial industry as a banker and have been for over 8 years now. I fell in love with real estate investing after learning a great deal about it from many of my successful clients. I have already purchased my first property which I am currently "house hacking" and fixing up to flip it in 2018. With that being said, I do want to dive deeper into real estate investing by purchasing multi-families down the road. I am also greatly Interested in getting my RE license. The big problem I am facing is that the company I work for does not allow me to have my RE license as it is a conflict of interest in their eyes. After debating this for a few years now, I have decided that I want to take the leap into the Real Estate industry and leave my current job. My question to you all is what are some jobs that would be worth looking into for part-time/full-time income while obtaining my RE license. I want to work in a job that is relative to real estate and may even help me down the road with  necessary skills, networking, etc. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!

Most women love to offer home staging business. Charge $2-3K a home. Know anyone with a truck can really cut down the expense.  A few realtors become their brokerage preferred stager. Some even sell and stage homes as a package to get an edge over other listing agents. 

Landscape.  That is another service you hire gardener and do landscape improvement.

Loans. Some top loan agents list and buy homes but that needs two licenses.

Notary Public. Can become notary public for your office. Just have a suitcase in your car.

Hi Shelly,

Welcome! You could try and get a part-time leasing job.  Some of these jobs won't require you to have a real estate license, but you could gain some experience there before securing your license. 

Good luck =)

@Shelby Mammano Welcome to the site!

I'd also add: Offering services to other agents like (showing another agents open house, meeting inspectors, covering floor time to answer phones, changing lockboxes, posting signs, etc)
