As real estate salespeople working the field, we are used to seeing Spring markets bring higher home sales every year but starting this March 2010 Ontario Realtors experienced a record breaking market. Does this kind of market mean that all Ontario real estate salespeople are making huge amounts of commission? The fact that interest rates are still low, consumer confidence is growing at a steady incline and most listings are finally coming down to earth with a realistic asking price, does not mean all agents are surviving their sales business. Some listings still brag about luring multiple Offers but exactly who are the agents that were opportune enough to have the Buyers?

Here are some facts that Ontario real estate agents should be familiar with these days:

1. Listed homes for sale in Ontario are up by approximately one third.

2. The increased total of homes for sale brought more equilibrium into the real estate market-buyers have a wider selection of homes to choose from causing fewer multiple offer situations

3. Price increases are beginning to become moderate if at all again bringing them inline with the economy

4. As interest rates edge up so slightly and the HST being in full affect, the Toronto, GTA and in fact all of Ontario real estate market will feel a slower activity level.

How real estate agents in Ontario save fees when not producing

Whether you are facing a hot sellers marketplace or hot buyers market or none of the above, as a real estate agent, it is not the end of the world or your employment if you are experiencing a decline or not enough sales to keep going financially. Your decrease in sales production could be for a reason other than market conditions, for example, you may have another opportunity you cannot ignore or you may be taking a leave of absence for personal reasons…….maternity leave, sickness in the family, job opportunity out of town or Province etc .

As an Ontario real estate agent, broker or salesperson, if you hold a real estate licence in Ontario Canada and you are thinking of quitting, or leaving the real estate sales business for a while and you wish to keep your real estate license active until you decide to return to sales whether earlier or even later in life, then learn about Park Your Real Estate License.

The Park Your License website will give you all the data you will need to make the best option for you. Hundreds of real estate agents in Ontario have used this low-cost solution to preserve their licence from being terminated for good and all the while safekeeping it in full force and taking advantage of continued sales and/or referral commissions.
