Hello,

We display property information on Trulia to provide consumers with transparent real estate information. We receive this information from public records gathered by a third-party data collector from your county. Our mission is to empower consumers with information and tools to make smart decisions about homes, real estate and mortgages. For this reason, we do not remove public record property information from Trulia.

Agree with others. DON'T get your license. Some facts first (I worked 1 1/2 yrs. as a realtor & was successful).

1. Getting your license is easy and you can take a course online or thru continuing education at your local high school which is much cheaper than $1250.

2. Once you get your license, you need to sign with a brokerage to work as a realtor. There are required fees you need to pay upfront - legal fee, brokerage fee, MLS fee, lockbox fee, desk fee (depends on broker), etc. In addition you need to pay for business cards and marketing yourself so people know you are in real estate. Example - I spent $2,000. after I got my license.

3. You are self employed as a realtor. You do not earn a regular paycheck. Who will support you while you work for free for the first 6 - 12 months? Do you plan to work part time to start and work full time elsewhere? As a realtor you do not collect a commission check until a house sells and it can take months before a sale happens.

4. You do NOT keep your entire commission check. When you sign with a brokerage, the broker keeps a percentage of your commission and you get the balance. For new realtors the split can be 50-50 or 60-40. If your commission check is $5,000. Your broker can keep $2,500. And you get $2,500. Also you need to pay income taxes on your commission + health insurance + put some money into retirement. There are no deductions taken on commission checks so you have to pay all deductions that you would have with regular paychecks. Once you get experience after several sales, then brokers allow the agents to keep more of the commission but this does not apply to new agents.

5. You are allowed to itemize all your realtor expenses on your IRS income tax return as business expenses BUT remember you pay for these expenses up front all year long. When you work with buyers, you pay for gas. When you work with sellers, you pay for the marketing & advertising. These expenses add up quickly.

6. Realtors need to capture their own leads. Your broker is not responsible for you to get buyers or sellers. You need to do this yourself. You will have to work hard to get neighbor's, friends, relatives, co workers to let people know you are now in real estate. There are websites where you can buy leads but they are very expensive.

7. How are your skills in advertising, selling and marketing. You need to be comfortable making cold selling calls, knocking on doors in your area, talking to strangers, etc. If you can't do this, you will fail.

8. How good are you with technology? You need to be comfortable texting, email, using software, knowing different websites, using your cellphone, etc.

As I mentioned in the beginning, I was successful in my first year because I previously worked in a large electronics retail store for 13 years. I was responsible for selling electronics, up selling, dealing with the public, dealing with customer complaints, presentations, and excellent customer service. My experience made it very easy to transition to real estate because I interacted with strangers daily, I had to sell daily, I learned everything about marketing, etc. if you don't have this background expect it to be very difficult.
