Agents that work 60+ hours could make more than $170K a year in some locations. Real estate brokers earn more, but let's hold that thought.
Let’s discuss what real estate agents do, the requirements to become an agent, and how much it typically costs to become a real estate agent.
Agents help people buy and sell properties. Agents representing the seller (also called “listing agents”) will officially list the property for sale within the Multiple Listing Service, or MLS.
They may take pictures of the property to include in the listing, suggest improvements to boost the home’s value, stage the house and help the owner determine a good selling price.
