Can An Agent Get A Commission For Selling Their Own House?
If I’m Licensed, Can I Earn A Commission For Buying Or Selling My Own House?
The Answer in Arizona is absolutely! Many of our students got their real estate license for this very reason. Whether buying a house and wanting to get the commission from the seller or selling your own home and wanting to save the commission costs, a real estate license lets you do it. Consider the average commission for a buyer’s agent and you can see the savings are well worth the relatively low cost of getting a real estate license.
What Do I Do With My Real Estate License If I Don’t Plan On Using It For A While?
If you aren’t going to use your real estate license for a while, you can simply go into “inactive status”. Learn more about Active Vs. Inactive Status. Then, as long as you keep up with your Continuing Education requirements, you can simply find a broker and go back to “active” status when the time is right to buy or sell again.
You don’t have to be a full-time agent to get the full benefits of a real estate license. Whether buying a home for your family or flipping properties for profit, a real estate license can bring a wealth of benefits.
