Did you know that now is the ideal time to become a real estate agent?
With populations on the rise everywhere, housing needs continue to expand as well. People are living longer so that there are more generations requiring housing. While there was a time when aging parents used to live with grown children or grown children used to live with parents to help with young children, and aunts and uncles, or cousins in need became part of the nuclear family under one roof, more and more people are looking for their own roof – especially here in Canada where there is so much land. We want our own phones, our own cars – and our own houses. And so do our parents and our sisters and brothers and cousins and aunts and uncles. Sunday dinner is enough togetherness. But it is that kind of intense need for ownership that opens up the real estate market.
And here, in Canada, and certainly in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA), people do not want to rent as our neighbours to the south so commonly do. They want to buy, and in every sale is a commission for a real estate agent. That agent could be you, especially with Bob’s tutoring through his real estate education institute called Real Estate Tutoring.
Also, more people are moving than ever before, giving a very real meaning to the term “global community.” Whether they are moving across the world or across the continent, from one country to another, to a new city, to the country, or just to a new home, they are changing residences more frequently than at any time in history, causing a mass, world-wide shuffle, and they all need the help of real estate agents.
Many are choosing to call Canada home, if they aren’t already, and to facilitate a relocation, whether from across the world or across the street, real estate agents can help. That is what our job is about – helping people find home.
But our job is also about helping to turn that home into the best investment possible. Right now, the stats are out. In September 2012, the average selling price for real estate in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) had an increase of more than 8.5% since last September, and the price of sales is still on the rise, creating a perfect real estate environment. With substantial competition between buyers to drive prices even higher, buyers want to purchase before those prices are sky high, so everybody’s scrambling to get theirs. It’s a realtor’s dream – and it could be yours.
What we have to offer, as real estate agents, is a valuable commodity in today’s market. People rely on us. People trust us. And people pay us a lot of money for what we do, creating a win-win situation.
Become a real estate agent. Make yourself happy and others. There’s no time like it.
