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.
