Whether you’ve recently obtained your real estate license or you’re just beginning the process, the question “what kind of jobs can I get with a real estate license?” has most likely crossed your mind. We are here to help answer that question! Surprisingly, there are many jobs you are eligible for with a real estate license! Keep reading as we explore the top nine jobs you can do with a real estate license and what they entail!
Top Nine Jobs You Can Do With A Real Estate License
1. Real Estate Agent (Residential or Commercial)
A real estate agent, residential or commercial, is a professional who organizes and facilitates a real estate transaction for either the buyer or seller. A real estate agent works for a broker or brokerage firm. Obviously, this is the most traditional career path after getting your real estate license, but not everyone wants this lifestyle. A real estate agent’s income is based on commission and some would rather have a steady paycheck.
2. Real Estate Broker
A broker is different from a real estate agent in that they have gotten their real estate broker license in addition to their real estate license. This means they can work independently and real estate agents can work for them.
3. Property Manager
It’s exactly what it sounds like: a property manager manages properties. Oftentimes owners of properties or real estate investors don’t have time to keep up with all of their properties. They will hire a property manager to manage their property or properties for them.
4. Real Estate Appraiser
When purchasing a residential or commercial property, the lender will require an appraisal of said property. This is where the real estate appraiser comes in. The appraiser will objectively determine what the property’s market value is for the lender.
5. Mortgage Broker
A mortgage broker is the middleman between the mortgage borrower and lender. They prepare all of the paperwork the lender needs for underwriting and ensure the borrower(s) fill it out completely and correctly.
6. Real Estate Investor
Simply put, a real estate investor invests in real estate for the purpose of making money. Real estate investors will usually renovate the property in order to sell or rent out the property for a profit.
7. Real Estate Assistant
The primary purpose of real estate assistants is to meet the needs of the real estate agents or realtors. These needs could be setting up meetings, gathering paperwork, responding to client emails, or even managing their social media for them. Anything the agents need, the assistant is there to help!
8. Title Examiner
A title examiner’s job is to review property titles to make sure there are no errors and they can be transferred to the new buyer. They also work in protecting the buyer through title insurance.
9. Home Inspector
One of the most important jobs in the home buying process is the home inspection. The home inspector will visit the property for sale and fully inspect for any problems. They will then report to the potential home buyer(s) with all of the problems that should be addressed before moving in.
