I don’t believe what finally pushed me to get a real estate license.
My brother-in-law was typically bragging about his income from his own real estate ventures, which did nothing but make me detest the job.
However, my boss’s business hastily folded last year and I had few other chances to pick up quick income before searching for a position at a competing corporation. I did retail for a few weeks but couldn’t justify it with the astronomically small pay compared to what I was making beforehand. And with the same bills from when I had my previous job, I had to put my energy toward something that would really keep the lights on and prevent my vehicle from getting repossessed. While real estate didn’t seem care about the most exciting job move, it was my last hope at making back some of the money I was losing each and every day being unemployed , however surprisingly, I seemed to take to real estate immediately. I l gained from a neighbor of mine who has his license, and he was gracious enough to allow me to shadow him for a week while pretending to be his employee so it wasn’t too obvious why I was following him to jobs everyday. He told me that the heating and cooling system is essential in determining the value of a property. If the central Heating and Air Conditioning system is broken, damaged, or over 15 years of age, a replacement machine needs to be factored into the price of the property. I typically push for a lower price for my client if the loft seller has an cooling system and oil furnace that fits a single or all of the above criteria.
