Real Estate & Real Estate Appraisal
This QuickJobs program is a WIA-eligible training program.
The first question most people ask about a job is: "What does it pay?" In real estate, the answer most often is: "Whatever you want to earn." But don't be fooled; you won't dictate employment terms. Instead, you'll be worth what you do.
Real estate can be an extremely lucrative field for those who are willing to take the time to learn how to succeed. According to the NAR Members Profile, sales agents who have been in the field for six to ten years average about $48,000 annually. Obviously, many agents make far more and the top producers can earn as much as a million dollars a year.
To earn more money, you must gain more knowledge, acquire new skills, work smarter, be more creative, or manage your time better to achieve greater results. Yes, it takes some effort (what terrific career doesn't?), but the financial rewards can be substantial.
