Is Now a Good Time to Start a Real Estate Career?

Is Now a Good Time to Start a Real Estate Career?

Real estate is an incredibly rewarding career with unlimited earning potential. But so many things influence the strength of the real estate business. Is "right now" a good time to start a real estate career? In this installment of Toby Talks, Brightwood College national director Toby Schifsky tackles this question, and details some of the factors that contribute to his answer.

 

RECAP:

  •     'Now' is definitely a great time to get into real estate. The market is in a much better place than it was 3 or 4 years ago.
  •     The market is vibrant and active, and some areas have seen a complete recovery in prices from the highs in the mid-2000s.
  •     Nearly every market is up from the recent real estate downturn.
  •     Now may be your time to take advantage of a recovering real estate market, by completing your prelicensing education with Brightwood.

Definitely. If you asked me three or four years ago, I would say you better have a plan and somebody to help you with it. Today, the real estate market is vibrant and active. Some areas have seen a complete recovery in home prices from the highs in the mid-2000s. Other areas lagged a little, but nearly every market is up from the low point in 2011. Now may be your opportunity to take advantage of a recovering real estate market. Kaplan helps thousands of people start their career in real estate every year and we can help you.
