Benefits of Working in Real Estate as a Mom

 


When we become parents often our priorities change. Many of the things we did before are no longer important, as our worlds now revolve around looking after our family. This means that sometimes we end up rethinking our jobs as well as other aspects of our lives. If you have a time-consuming, unfulfilling role where you don’t earn as much as you like, then perhaps you should consider switching to real estate. Here we are going to look at some of the benefits of working in real estate when you’re a mom.

Support

If you join a business that supports its employees, such as Compass, then you’re putting yourself in a great position. Compass has various inclusion methods in place to ensure their employees all get the same opportunities. One of their affinity groups at Compass is called Moms of Compass. This involves building awareness and advocacy through initiatives and programs, meaning you’ll never feel like a burden for having other pressing responsibilities. You need a workplace that understands you and your lifestyle. If you join a business that supports its agents, you should also receive training where needed.

Big Earnings

The fact that a big chunk of your income is likely to be commission when it comes to real estate means you can get out of what you put in. And there’s certainly a huge scope to earn a nice wage. However, you do need to keep in mind that patience is a big part of the role as homes aren’t sold overnight, but when buyers do sign on the dotted line, your next payday is sure to be a great one - this means more money to support the family!

A Chance to Let Off Steam

Having a role where you can be active and meet new people can be great if your day-to-day out of work is with babies and toddlers. It gives you a chance to meet and socialize with adults, and to get out of the house. As a mom, this is usually preferable to being cooped up in an office or working from home. It can also be a great way to check out the local properties and gain a greater knowledge of what’s available in your area, which could be something that's invaluable to you if you’re wanting to move in the future, considering your growing family.

Useful Skills

Some of the skills you pick up from real estate can also be used in your home life as a parent. As we mentioned before, patience is of great importance in this type of role, which is also something you’ll need to put into practice with your children. On top of this, the following skills crossover with real estate and parenting: multitasking, being flexible, understanding human emotion and social cues, putting the needs of others first, an interest in people, etc. All of these are fantastic attributes to develop further, as they will help you in your work and personal life.

What do you think? Could a job in real estate be suited to you? There’s only one way to find out.
