Why real estate agent is a great job for parents

Category: Real Estate and Construction

Real estate agents are the people that connect buyers to sellers of property. Whether you're in the market for a home or selling one, you'll likely be working with a real estate agent. Some agents work for companies and some are self-employed. And there are many reasons why people who need flexibility at work might become a real estate agent.

Set your own hours

Busy people can't always take time out of a workday to view a house for sale. So real estate agents work lots of weekends and evenings. But that means you can schedule in time with your kids, get them to sports clubs or attend school plays. Part-time work is common in real estate, so you won’t have to put up a fight for reduced hours. Flexibility is also great if you have a disability or illness. If you're looking for a career as a real estate agent, have a look at the VERCIDA jobs database.

Predictable cycles

There are certain times of year when people are more likely to buy and sell houses. The autumn and the spring are the most fruitful periods for house transactions. In the winter people are preparing for the festive holidays, and school break in the summer is often too busy. Chances are your own busy times will reflect those of the housing market. With good planning, you can schedule your family holiday or medical procedure during the slow season. This helps with achieving a sustainable work-life balance, which in turn is important for good mental health and wellbeing.

Your community is your network

The real estate market is incredibly varied, from starter homes to investment properties to palatial estates. No matter your social background or your station in life, you probably know someone who wants to buy or sell a house. It's uplifting to be able to help one's friends and acquaintances in such a direct and practical way.
