What Does A Missouri Real Estate Agent Do?

Real Estate Agents in Missouri help clients to purchase, rent, or sell property. This includes finding buyers and sellers, providing advice and helping to negotiate on price, and referring home inspectors or mortgage professionals - all within federal and state rules and regulations. Further, they are required to represent the best interests of their clients, whether they be buyers or sellers.

Additionally, depending upon whether representing the buyer or the seller, agents can recommend an appropriate selling price, market the property, negotiate offers, attending and/or reviewing the home inspection and appraisal, provide feedback on comparable sales.

What Hours Do Real Estate Agents Work?

Since many buyers work 9-5, they typically look for properties "after hours". This means that a lot of a real estate agent's time is spent on nights and weekends showing properties.

That said, business time when not working with clients involves previewing properties, keeping up with paperwork, working on marketing or other business activities, and taking additional educational classes.

How Are Real Estate Agents Paid?

Most real estate agents are paid on commission when a property sells. A typical arrangement is that the selling agency and the buying agency split the real estate commission equally.

For example, if the real estate commission was 6%, each agency would receive 3% of the selling price. The buying and selling agent then typically split their 3% equally, though high-producing agents normally negotiate and receive a higher split.

What Is The Difference Between A Real Estate Broker And A Real Estate Agent

Real estate agents primarily work with buyers and sellers, but work for the agency with which they are affiliated.

While Real Estate Brokers also work with buyers and sellers, they also are responsible for overseeing their agents. This includes not just training, but overseeing forms and other paperwork. Additionally, Real Estate Brokers have to take additional education and earn a separate real estate broker license.

The Benefits Of Having A Missouri Real Estate License

There are many benefits to having a real estate license. While helping to serve your community find their "dream house", you also benefit from flexible hours and the opportunity to have high earnings via your commissions. For those who invest in real estate, having a license gives you early access to properties as they become available.

How To Earn A Missouri Real Estate License

Below are the recommended steps for passing your real estate agent exam and earning your Missouri real estate license.
  • Step 1: Review Missouri's State Licensing Requirements
    Since real estate licensing is state-specific, you want to make sure you qualify or meet the basic requirements for the state in which you want to be licensed. In most states, you have to be at least 18 years old, pass a background check, and pass your state's exam. Click your state from the table above to find your state's requirements - and suggested licensing courses.
  • Step 2: Register For The Missouri Real Estate Licensing Course
    Our real estate training courses are designed to meet the state pre-licensing requirements, as well as prepare you for your state exam. Once you are done, you will be ready to take your state's real estate licensing exam. Click you state from the table above for information on where and how to register for your exam.

    Note: Once you complete your course, be sure to obtain your official transcripts or certificate of completion from the school, which is required for your real estate license application.
  • Step 3: Study For Your Exam!
    While exams often require you to know terms, definitions, and rules, real estate licensing exams are often more than just memorization, so make sure you understand the concepts and take as many of the practice exams that come with your real estate pre-licensing course materials as possible.
  • Step 4: Pass Your Real Estate Licensing Exam
  • Step 5: Submit An Application To Get Your Missouri Real Estate License
    Once you pass your exam, the next step is to apply for your real estate license. This usually includes completing an application and paying a licensing fee.
  • Step 6: Determine Where You Want To Work
    New agents can work either individually, with a broker, or with a team. Those who want to work individually should make sure they have a good business plan and ample funding to carry them until their sales start rolling in. Separately, working with a broker could reduce up front costs while also providing a mentor relationship. Whichever option you decide is best for you, be sure to get trained!
  • Step 7: Get Training For Doing Listing Presentations, Handling Objections, And More!
    While your real estate exam typically includes terms, definitions, and laws, it does not teach you how to sell real estate. For that, you'll need training on how to handle listing, FSBO, and expireds presentations, overcome objections, and more. Luckily, Training Center has lots of real estate training courses to help you succeed. Simply click one of the recommended courses below or select a topic from the search box below.
Good luck earning your real estate license!
