Can A Realtor Be Part Time?

One of the most asked questions I get is “can I be successful as a part-time Realtor?” There is a great article that addresses this very question and explores the pro’s and con’s

 

You can find that article here: Can Real Estate Agents Work Part-Time?

 

Let’s explore some highlights:

Some of the pro’s to being a part-time realtor is that having another job ensures your survivability because you do not rely on real estate income during slow times. Another pro is working another job where you meet many people might bring you more lead opportunities.

Although there are pros, there are also cons. One big one is time flexibility and client skepticism. If you are not available and can only meet a client a few hours during the day, it might make the client feel like you are not current in the market.

Another con is that being a Realtor costs a lot of money each month to maintain and keep a license. That must be considered or it might not be worth it economically.

 

What is really awesome about the article that was written by a Colorado Springs Realtor is that it gives you suggestions on how to become successful as a part-time Realtor. Some of the topics the author touches on are working on a team, business cards and social media. There is even a link to a site that can give you a rough estimate as to a part-time Realtors annual salary.

 

If you are exploring getting your real estate license and wondering if you should be part time or full time, this article will give you a brief look at the pros and cons of being part-time.

When my husband was a live we did real estate together, he passed 3 years ago.  I had taken time off to look after him and my business fell way off.  It's taking longer than I ever thought to get it back up and running so I had to take a part time job while I rebuild my career.  It's also hard to do it by myself, he did so much for me.

Yes Michelle, I agree. It is very difficult to go full time and make a living while working it only part time.
