On today's radio show I had a caller who asked ..
'Is this a good time to get into real estate?'
He said he had a license back in 2008 when the market 'tanked' ( his word).
Recently unemployed, he is thinking about getting back into the business.
I answered him with a couple of questions.
How did you do 8 years ago?
He said he was only doing it part time but he loved the business and loved going into houses.
If you have the passion, the fire in the belly and the drive to learn to work hard...it is always a good time to get into real estate!
Do you have some funds saved to live on for the first year?
He has limited funds due to his situation.
Working another job does not give you the opportunity to take classes, go to seminars, learn how to blog, shadow another successful agent, advertise or be available for taking care of your buyers and sellers.
If you are just 'trying' real estate, it is never a good time!
There is only one person that can make it happen. You!
How would you answer?
