It’s Not Easy Money! But it can be easy

I’ve made it a good thing here that it isn’t expensive to get into this business.  That coupled with low barriers to entry education and training wise lures people into the business who shouldn’t be here.  There is a prevailing attitude out there that real estate is fast, easy and big money.

A large percentage of new agents get back out of the business in their first or second year.  They find that the easy big money just wasn’t there.  They struggled and worked long and hard and took home very few commissions.  Their costs to ferry buyers around in their cars was higher than they anticipated, and they really learned to hate working with buyers.

Starting out part time may be a little more challenging in marketing, getting business and meeting client schedules, but it helps some to stay in the business until commissions start flowing.

 It’s not fun when you’re working hard and long and not bringing in the bucks, but it’s worth sticking around if you can.

EAPNN will help members tackle all barriers that are discouraging and take you through becoming a millionaire real estate agent.
