A property agent organizes transactions in real estate between buyers and sellers. In this video, a property agent speaks about what the role entails. Firstly, a property agent’s work hours are flexible though they cover multiple roles while working.
They are salespeople and also advocates for the buyer. They work to accommodate their clients even on nights, early mornings, and weekends. In addition, they can appraise a property and put it on the market where it can be viewed privately or in an open home arrangement. Once a buyer places an offer, they will handle negotiations between the two parties.
To become a property agent, one needs a real estate license specific to the state(s) they will be operating within. On average, it takes four to six months to complete the required real estate courses and pass the licensing exam. For this career path to work, it’s important to be outgoing and self-advertise as a real estate agent. Every day is a chance to build relationships and contacts that could yield results in the future. This is critical since money earned is closely tied to the effort put in.
