According to the Department of Real Estate, 847 people took the salespersons exam in March of 2009. In April of 2009 (the last available month on the DRE website) 949 people took the salespersons exam. This represents about a 12% increase in salespersons exams scheduled from March to April.
Ready for a crazy statistic?
Check this out - in February of 2006, 16,069 salespersons exams were scheduled.
The bottom line- we may be seeing some uptick but we are still light years away from where we were in terms of new people entering our great business.
So what does this mean for you?
Less people taking the exam means less competition. Less competition means it will be easier to get clients. More clients = more opportunities to contribute.
Something I've learned from Warren Buffett "Be fearful when others are greedy and greedy when others are fearful."
This is a great time to get into the real estate business.
