Tampa Real Estate Market Improves and Agents flooding the industry: the good, the bad, and the ugly

Why Should You Be Wary of New Agents?

Improvements in real estate have led many people back to school to get real estate licenses, which is something you as a consumer need to be aware of. If someone is just now getting back into real estate after being out for a while, they may mislead you on their level of experience. Someone who has never worked in real estate, or who has been out of real estate for years, isn't aware of the latest tools and strategies for successful transactions.

You need to be cautious about who you work with. If it's someone relatively new to the industry, they may be using outdated methods and are likely to make mistakes. It's easy to get a license, but it's not easy to be a real estate professional. In real estate school, they don't teach you how to sell homes, they teach you how to avoid a lawsuit. Inexperienced agents won't know how to list a home, write an offer, or complete the process thoroughly. 

There are many people getting into the industry because they think it's a get rich quick scheme, but that couldn't be further from the truth. There is a lot to learn, and it takes years to get to the point where you can make a good deal of money. There will likely be some good changes brought by our strong market, but you need to avoid working with agents who come to the industry with the wrong attitude. You need to stick with experienced brokers while the new up-and-comers get a hang of the business! 

It may not be the right business move to hire someone fresh in the industry. Recent changes will bring in a whole lot of new blood into the industry, so you need to be cautious about who you work with!
