A real estate license is necessary for realtors who want to earn higher incomes. Most licensed realtors agree that a real estate license is worth the time and money. Here are more benefits of a real estate license.

First, it is always important to have a leg up on the competition. A licensed real estate agent gains access to the Multiple Listing Service (MLS). The MLS allows the realtor to focus on the best neighborhoods and pinpoint the newest properties available in the market faster. Furthermore, the MLS provides historical data of past and present prices, and comparisons of similar properties.

Second, a real estate license allows realtors to establish a network with other licensed agents and brokers. This network provides somewhat of a continuing education for the realtor. Also, the network provides the realtor with a valuable link to appraisers, surveyors, and lenders.

Third, a real estate license opens up opportunities for formal education and training to help the realtor learn new trends in the real estate industry. Some of the valuable topics in these trainings include improving negotiating skills, marketing and promotional trends, and attending open houses.

An Overview of the TRENDS Seminar

Donald Auzine serves as a realtor for Burns & Company in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. To stay current with his field’s developments, Donald Auzine attends the annual TRENDS Seminar in Baton Rouge.

The TRENDS Seminar is an annual event that began in 1988 at the behest of the Commercial and Investment Division (CID) of the Greater Baton Rouge Association of Realtors and the Louisiana State University Real Estate Research Institute (RERI). The seminar’s mission is to offer assessments of local real estate and present informed forecasts on the industry’s future.

As a supporter of TRENDS, the CID encourages commercial realtors and appraisers to promote a sense of unity and enhance its integrity, experience, and quality orientation. The group organizes quarterly lunches to publicize this knowledge. 

The other founder, RERI, uses grants and private donations to identify Louisiana market trends that will benefit the expansion of commercial activity. 

The 2019 TRENDS meeting, held on April 30, featured a keynote address by Dr. Elliott Eisenberg, previously a senior economist of the National Association of Home Builders in Washington, D.C. His areas of expertise include forecasting, government regulations, and derivatives.
