Pros: make your own hours, great business for self motivators, display individual creativity!
Cons: living on the edge financially, pay your own insurance, is a very stressful business when you are by yourself, and self supportive. highly competitive as well.
I have been in real estate for a long time. It has served me well but am wanting to do something different at this point in my life with good benefits and a retirement plan. A typical day at work is prospecting and no matter where you go, you are always prospecting! The difficult part of the job is you work a lot of hours, week days and week ends and – more... still may have nothing to show for your time & gas,not to mention the stress involved. It is a very competitive business, with there being so many real estate agents out there now, and in many occasions, not much loyalty displayed. – less
