Career Options for Real Estate Sales Agents
If you are considering a career in real estate sales, you will need to have a thorough knowledge of the real estate market in your community.
As an agent, you will spend much of your time showing properties to clients, analyzing properties for sale, marketing your listings, meeting with potential clients, or researching the real estate market.
Most real estate sales agents sell residential property. A small number specialize in commercial, industrial, agricultural, or other types of real estate.
Every specialty requires knowledge of that particular type of property and clientele. Those who sell or lease business property need to understand leasing practices, business trends, and location factors. Agents who sell or lease industrial properties must know about the region’s transportation, utilities, and labor supply.
