If you are considering being an entrepreneur starting 2010 as a way to improve your financial standing and you are looking at Real Estate Business as one of your top choice, then here are some tips on how you can take-off to a “PROFITABLE BUT INEXPENSIVE” start;
1. Secure first a Real Estate Broker’s License or Accreditation as Real Estate Salesperson– “REAL ESTATE SERVICE is both a PRACTICE of a PROFESSION and ENTREPRENEURSHIP.” To practice the profession, first you will have to secure a Real Estate Broker’s License from The Professional Regulatory Commission (PRC). The minimum requirement is that you have to be a college graduate of a relevant course such as Engineering, Architecture, Business Management, Social Sciences and the like. You will have to pass the Board Examination for Real Estate Service and as a pre-requisite, you will have to undergo seminars and review on Real Estate Service with accredited institutions such as Philippine Association of Realtors Board (PAREB) or Real Estate Brokers Association of the Philippines (REBAP) as provided for in the REAL ESTATE SERVICE ACT OF THE PHILIPPINES or R.A. 9646 also known as R.E.S.A. LAW.
If you are not a college graduate, you can still have the opportunity to practice Real Estate Service by Accrediting as a Real Estate Salesperson. The minimum requirement is that you must have completed 2ND year college education. There is no Board Examination for being a Real Estate Salesperson. However, you will have to secure the Accreditation through a licensed real estate broker who will be the one to sponsor and accredit you as a member of their realty company.
2. Once you have the License or Accreditation, start learning the profession by getting involved in “PROJECTS SELLING” such as selling of subdivision lots, housing or condominiums through a Real Estate Marketing Company such as RCD Realty Marketing Corporation. One thing that is exciting in Real Estate Service Profession and Entrepreneurship is that you have the opportunity to learn and earn in 30 days or less even if you are still very new in the business by just following the step-by-step proven BUSINESS SUCCESS SYSTEM like the one used by our RCD Realty that has helped thousands of our Accredited Real Estate Salespersons who have achieved their financial and material goals.
