There are more jobs in the real estate field than you might think. There are many jobs you can get with a real estate license that you might not have considered. These opportunities are both challenging and have the potential to be profitable new careers for you!
When it comes to discovering what you can do with a real estate license, becoming a property manager is often a very appealing choice. A property manager is tasked with the responsibility of making sure a property, residential or commercial, runs smoothly and is, ultimately, making money for whoever owns it. When it comes to residential properties this could mean wearing many different hats such as leasing agent and repairman. Depending on the size of the property and the strengths of the property manager some or all of these tasks could be outsourced and the property manager’s role is simply to coordinate them and make sure the property is upkept.
Being a real estate broker isn’t the same thing as being a real estate agent, even though the two terms are often informally used interchangeably. The difference between a broker and an agent is that a broker is a licensed real estate professional who has taken further education and is qualified to manage a real estate office with multiple agents. Numerous factors can influence your earning potential. A real estate broker may be a career path to set your sights on if you’re already in the process of becoming an agent and want to know how your career could continue to grow.
A leasing consultant’s job is to make sure there are tenants in the building. This job can often require you to work evenings and weekends, but a bonus is that it also usually comes with a degree of flexibility. If you enjoy marketing and negotiating this could be a great role for you. Leasing consultants need to get the word out about specials or openings in their building and often throw promotional events or enjoy staying up-to-date on the latest digital marketing best practices.
The real estate industry is so much more than simply residential real estate. It encompasses a broad variety of career opportunities that require different strengths. Once you have your license to practice real estate there are so many different directions you can take your career.
