Cons of Being A Real Estate Agent

Here are some disadvantages of working in real estate:


Real estate can become very slow at times. You may have an entire year go by without making a single sale! This can wreak havoc on both your income and your credit, but in spite of that you will need to smile and go on as if nothing is happening. This is the lot of a real estate agent. There is a lot of work to be done and sometimes very little time in which to do it.

Dealing with the public can be difficult at times. If you tell your client something they do not want to hear, they may become upset. If you withhold the information, they may become upset later because you did not tell them. This is a catch-22 situation which sometimes cannot be avoided.

As you can see, it is a roller-coaster career with some significant downsides. In spite of that, it can be very rewarding if done properly. If you decide to dive into this field, make sure you research it, and learn as much as possible. Then spend some time preparing a good real estate finance resume. Finally, send your resume to real estate companies in your area.
