Just like any other industry, the real estate sector has it's own pitfalls.
3 things every agent should know
In this edition of Real Estate Tips, you will find out three essentials every real estate agent must know.
These can discourage even the most optimistic agent.
Hence, the importance of the following.
Education is key- In order to be a real good agent and be ahead of your peers, you need to have some form of education. This does not have to formal, you could work under an expert agent and learn all the tricks of the business.
There will be hard times- While the real estate sector in Nigeria is getting better, this does not mean things will be good every time. As a real estate agent, you have to learn to take the good times with the hard times. New York City agent, Gretchen de Chellis, had more to say about this in a recent interview. “People have this image that being an agent is easy, that all you have to do is show apartments. This is an undervalued job for all the work that goes into it! And real estate is a really fickle industry.”
Be flexible- The real estate business does not have the usual “Monday-Friday, 8-5” routine, so you have to be flexible. This implies being considerate of the needs of your clients.
The real estate industry is not an exact science but if you keep doing your job and putting in your best, you will end up a successful agent.
