In addition to saving time and making money, having your real estate license can help you in various ways.

  • As a real estate agent, you have access to the MLS.  You can do your own search for investment properties without having to wait on a real estate agent to get back to you with potential investment properties.  The MLS can also help you compare and calculate accurate values.
  • As a real estate agent, you have a bigger database for networking.  Being a real estate agent you have access to a variety of real estate professionals that can help you in your success as an investor.
  • As a real estate agent, you have the knowledge to thrive.  You will have a wide range of knowledge regarding real estate that will give you a step up from non real estate agent investors.
  • The IRS limits the amount of money you can deduct on rental properties if it is not your primary job, and having your primary job as a real estate agent, you may be able to deduct many more expenses.

These are just some of the reasons why real estate agents should become investors, even if it is just rehabbing a few properties a year.
