Real Estate Club Benefits

Updated on March 24, 2014

Real Estate

If your new to real estate or you lack in depth experience in real estate, you may want to consider joining a real estate club in your area. Real estate clubs can be extremely beneficial to you and it can likely shape your career as a real estate agent. Since there's thousands of real estate agents all across America, finding a professional real estate club shouldn't be hard. Granted, it can be tough if you live off the grid per say but joining one may have more benefits then you think.

Why should I join a real estate club? It's not a requirement but it can be the difference between success and failure. If you've just recently passed your real estate exam, you have no clue about the business side of real estate. I'm not down playing your talent or skills, not at all. It's just the fact that there's a whole new world of real estate out there that they don't teach in your real estate exam. If you're lucky, perhaps your under the wings of an experienced real estate agent. That much may be true but eventually, you need to branch out on your own and joining a real estate club could open the door.

Real Estate Training

One of the biggest benefits of real estate clubs is the real estate training that you'll receive on a regular basis. The real estate training you receive is the type of training that will make you successful. Most real estate clubs have professional real estate instructors that have years and decades of experience. This is what you want. We'll talk about finding the right real estate club later in more detail but you want one that has experience.

If you don't know by now, there's dozens of categories that fall under real estate. You have tax deeds and certificates, foreclosures, short sales, residential and commercial to name a few. Every aspect that you learn during training is going to help you advance your career. You want to take advantage of everything that is offered in terms of real estate training. There's no better place to learn then from real estate professionals that have years of experience in these areas.

Real estate training can be expensive, there's no doubt about it. Although this is true, real estate clubs are much cheaper and you can get equal or better real estate training. I've seen real estate club memberships as cheap as $99 for a year and some that cost a few hundred dollars per year. The important thing is choosing the right real estate club and that's what we're going to discuss next.

Real Estate Club Benefits

You've already learned about the importance of real estate clubs and real estate training. Now, let's look at all the great benefits you'll likely receive by joining a real estate club. Now, it's important to note that all real estate clubs are not alike nor similar. Each real estate club has their own training, rules, meetings, training and so on. In general nature, most real estate clubs offer similar benefits but they do differ from one club to another.

One of the most important benefits that real estate clubs offer is the real estate training. We spoke about it earlier. Most real estate clubs have real estate professionals with decades of real estate experience. Imagine what you can learn from real estate agents and professionals with this much experience. Pay attention to what each one has to offer, write it down, don't be afraid to ask questions. There's no better place to learn the art of real estate.

Another benefit of joining a RE club is the social networking. Most real estate clubs have dozens of real estate members. When you include the men and women that each one knows in the real estate industry, you're looking at a network of thousands! This is going to be a great time to grow your own real estate network. Growing your own real estate list is important. You need to always be aware of that. If you want to make the real money, you're going to have to eventually branch off on your own.

One huge benefit that I found with a few real estate clubs was buy and sell opportunities at the meetings. When your in real estate, there's no such thing as a day off. If you're not in the office, you should be on your social accounts, growing your list or sending out emails. Having opportunities at each meeting can mean money in the bank, especially after you've been there for a while. You never know when you're going to need someone. Always make a great impression and always introduce yourself.

These are just a few of the perks of most real estate clubs. How can you find out which real estate clubs do what? More important then anything, you have to choose the right RE club, no questions. I'll teach you how to do that next.

How To Choose The Right Real Estate Club

Choosing the right real estate club will be the most important element of all. You have the right choose real estate training courses and real estate courses online if you wish too. In my opinion, you're much better off choosing a local real estate club or a real estate club where you'll be working. You have to make that decision for yourself, but if you do, this is how you can find the right RE club.

When I'm searching for a real estate club, the first thing I'm looking for is experience. I want to choose a club that has experience and one that has a proven track record of success. How can we find this out? Where do you find out everything now? Google? Absolutely, if a real estate club is established, you'll be able to find them on the search engines. Take the time to review their online website, look at reviews and search for members. Read the founder's biography. It's up to you to choose the right club, nobody is going to do it for you.

Next, take the time to make phone calls. Don't be afraid to call them up and ask about their benefits or prices. This is going to give you a great feel for the club. Some clubs may be filled and not have open memberships. At the least, you'll know. Some real estate clubs are worth traveling 50 miles to, others perhaps not. The point is to learn all you can so you can make the right decision.

Price always matter and it should in this case also. I want a real estate club that offers a fair price for what I'll receive in return. I don't want to pay hundreds of dollars a month for real estate training and all the perks of a club membership. Again, you have to determine this. You should take in account everything that I've said to you in this article. Review everything and do your best to choose the best club based on your needs.

Real estate clubs are perfect for anyone fresh off their real estate license or anyone struggling in real estate. Remember, to be the best, you have to learn from the best. If I can get into the best real estate club in the country to learn from those who have million dollar budgets, then I'm going. In the end, it's going to pay off.

      Thank you all for taking time to come by and visit an old friend!! Miss you all seriously. I would much rather join a real estate club rather then going through real estate training elsewhere. I truly believe that line, "to be the best, you have to learn from the best." Especially true for new real estate agents. Thank you all!!
