Becoming an agent in the Sacramento region is such a lucrative and rewarding career but it is a no brainer that entering the real estate world is difficult especially when you don’t have the proper knowledge about the real estate industry. Below are things you need to find out in becoming an agent and aside from that, I have also written the things you need to do first before you can be part of this business that offers a very profitable lifetime career.
Read carefully the steps below.
Find a Real Estate School in Sacramento – Go online and look for schools offering real estate courses and check out if they are a credible school to offer such short courses. Credibility is one of the things you need to look for when looking for a real estate school. You can also ask a trusted realtor about schools that offer short courses and when you have the school name, email address, business address and the contact details, have an appointment with them and enroll your preferred real estate course immediately. Furthermore, don’t forget to check if your target school is endorsed by the Department of Real Estate to offer real estate courses just to make sure that you are dealing with a legitimate school.
Pre qualify yourself – Find out if you are qualified to become an agent by checking out real estate qualifications. You must be a high school graduate and at least 18 years of age to be accepted in the Industry. You will also need to present important documents such as valid ID’s (with photos), residency certificate and tuition fee at your target real estate school upon enrollment. Keep in mind that becoming an agent does not require real estate experience, all you need is to go back to school for a short period of time and pass the real estate license examination.
Choose a real estate course – When you are qualified to become an agent and already have a real estate school, you may start choosing a state approved real estate courses (DRE approved). Get the course you preferred and learn everything you need to learn and find ways to finish the course without distractions from the outside world. Concentrate on your studies and when you finish the course, follow the next step.
Pass the California Real Estate Examination – When you have finished the course, you need to get a real estate license, but pass the real estate examination first and after that you can start doing the business. Get your certification proving that you have finished the course and bring it together with other important documents to the DRE and apply for a real estate examination administered by California real estate practitioners. Pass the exam so that you can be allowed to get the real estate license.
Get the license – After all the hard works you put in to become an agent, the time has finally arrived for you to get the license from the DRE office. Before going to the DRE, prepare the certificate that you have passed the real estate licensure exam and also some vital documents such as valid ID’s (with recent photos), as well as a certificate proving that you live in the Sacramento region. Bring and submit it to the DRE office and pay license fee at cashier. You will be instructed to come back for the release date of your real estate license ID card after few weeks.
Start earning from your real estate business – Once you have a real estate license you can start doing the business and begin earning unlimited amount of money. We all know that real estate is a lucrative business but much effort should be put on if you want to reap the fruits of your labor.
