Current Market Offers a Great Time for a Move into Real Estate

April 07, 2009 // Franchising.com // Given the realities of today's job market, the value of working in a field that offers unlimited earning potential and countless other perks has never been more appreciated. That, along with signs of a real estate market poised for a recovery, are just two of the many factors driving more and more individuals to pursue a new career in real estate.

Unlike career changes to many fields that may require expensive and lengthy schooling , those interested in making a move in to real estate can earn their license within in a few short weeks and for a relatively inexpensive price. Once licensed and affiliated with a broker, individuals have the opportunity to begin earning income quickly as they establish their real estate business.

"The real estate industry is full of individuals from diverse backgrounds who got into the business to take advantage of the many opportunities offered," said Bill Spadea, vice president of executive recruiting for Weichert, Realtors. "Real estate is unique in that it is one of the few professions that allows you to work locally, keep a flexible schedule and provide limitless income potential."

Weichert, Realtors offers the tools and support necessary to get those interested in real estate licensed and trained so they can be well on their way to establishing their new career in a matter of a few weeks. The company helps would-be agents meet pre-licensing requirements and offers them the necessary training and marketing resources to start their career. Then, the company's unique mentoring plan and lead generation system are designed to help generate business for sales associates so they can begin earning income quickly.

For the recently unemployed, as well as those who simply are seeking new challenges, real estate is a great option for a full-time career. Because the work of a sales associate is also suited for nights and weekends, real estate also provides a viable solution for underemployed workers or those looking to supplement their current income with a second job. The flexible schedule of a real estate professional also allows for a smooth transition for those who want to first establish their real estate career before giving up their current job.

Another option for those considering real estate as a part-time profession is to become licensed and earn income through referral business. Weichert Referral Associates, a subsidiary of Weichert, Realtors, offers an opportunity for an individual with a real estate license to earn additional income simply by referring friends, family and other contacts looking to purchase or sell a home to full-time sales associates.

"Now is the perfect time to get into real estate. Learning the tools and techniques that work in today's market through our excellent, hands-on training courses, new licensees will be poised for even greater success as the market picks back up," added Spadea.

Weichert has nearly 18,000 sales associates in approximately 500 company-owned and franchised sales offices in key markets throughout the U.S. A family of full-service real estate companies, Weichert helps customers buy and sell residential and commercial real estate, and streamlines the delivery of mortgages and home and title insurance.
