Becoming a Licensed
Being a real estate agent is exciting, whether it’s part-time or full-time. As an agent focused on residential sales, you’ll typically earn 2 to 5% of the purchase price of property bought or sold through you. Example: For a house sold at $100,000, You’d earn $2,000 to $5,000 on that sale, paid upon the closing. The percentage of commission you earn is based on your contract with the real estate company of your choosing. Once you’re licensed, you can work with any company that you wish, and even switch between companies as you see fit. You have independence as an agent. With your real estate license, you can work in residential, commercial, or property management.
