Selling Houses is Stressful: 5 Reasons Why Being a Real Estate Agent is Not Easy

Selling houses is stressful. And we are not just talking about the stress of choosing a perfect house or finding a good buyer. Being a real estate agent is not an easy job, despite the common misconception that it's all about meeting new people and showing them fancy houses. Real estate agents have to go through several stressors that can not only impact their personal life but also their mental health. In this blog post, we will show you the five main stress points of being a real estate agent, and convince you that there must be a better way to do this job.

Long hours and irregular schedules: Real estate agents have to be available when their clients are available. This means they have to work weekends, holidays, and odd hours. They often have to work past their normal working hours to meet deadlines, provide information, or answer inquiries. Working for extended hours can lead to health issues such as lack of sleep, fatigue, and other emotional problems.

Uncertainty of income: Real estate agents don't have a steady income. They only make money when they sell a house, and there is no guaranteed paycheck at the end of the month. They are constantly under pressure to find new clients, close deals, and reach their sales goals. This can lead to high levels of anxiety, stress, and pressure to perform well.

Managing client expectations: Real estate agents have to manage their clients' expectations. When selling a house, the client's expectations may not always match market reality. Real estate agents must navigate these differences and advise their clients realistically. Handling these scenarios can lead to emotional strain and conflict with the clients.

The tedious process of closing a sale: Closing a sale involves paperwork, legalities, and negotiations that can take weeks or even months. Real estate agents have to manage all of these factors while also keeping their clients updated and informed. The lengthy and complex closing process can cause stress and pressure for real estate agents.

Competition and comparison: the real estate industry is highly competitive. There are countless other agents in the same field, and many clients compare agents against each other to find the best deals. This constant comparison can lead to feelings of low self-esteem and a lack of confidence in one's ability to meet the clients' expectations.

As a real estate agent, you must be aware of the stress points involved in your work life. One solution to all these problems might be to consider becoming a real estate referral agent. By utilizing this business model of referring all your clients to other agents, you can still collect hefty commission checks without all the stress of selling houses yourself.

Hi, I'm Andrew

And YES! I made 6-Figures without running a single transaction.

My time as a Realtor helped me understand the stresses of selling real estate, and allowed me to develop systems and strategies that make being a referral agent a lucrative and stress-free career. I went from never spending any time with my family to working just a few hours a week and taking time off whenever I want, making just as much money as I did as a full-time agent. Now, I’m sharing with you how to make this a reality in your own life.
