'Is this a good time to get into real estate?'
A recent caller asked because he hears the market is strong. He had tried RE some years ago when real estate was slower.
Recently unemployed, he is thinking about getting back into the business.
I answered him with a couple of questions.
How did you do ten years ago?
He said he was doing it part-time, but he loved the business and loved going into houses.
If you have the passion, the fire in the belly, and the drive to learn to work hard, it is always a good time to get into real estate!
Do you have some funds saved to live on for the first year?
He said he'd need a part-time job.
Will working another job allow you time to take your required classes, work with buyers and sellers, learn how to blog, shadow another successful agent, and be available to take care of your clients?
There was silence.
If you are just 'trying' real estate, it is never a good time!
There is only one person that can make it happen.
How would you answer-
