With the unemployment rate reaching shocking new levels and the urgency for career solutions that don't require years to ramp up, many are taking a second look at a career in real estate. Sound crazy? Actually it makes perfect sense.

There is no career path that allows you to train so rapidly, and start the income rolling in so quickly, as that of a real estate professional. In most states, you can take your entire training curriculum online, and finish in less than 30 days!

Companies that provide online real estate education note the following reasons for this career rotation into real estate:

  • A Fast Start - it requires only about 4 weeks of education
  • A Low Cost - Tuition is generally less than $300
  • A Great High-Paying Job - You're practically guaranteed to get a job where you can earn $50,000 in the first year

Geoffrey Thompson, one of the founders of the online real estate education company, RealEstateExpress.com notes, "There is no career path that allows you to train so rapidly, and start the income rolling in so quickly, as that of a real estate professional. In most states, you can take your entire training curriculum online, and finish in less than 30 days!"

When compared with other careers one can attain online, such as medical biller, paralegal, secretary, or any of the 2-4 year degreed professions, none can offer such short training or immediate payback. Most of these non real estate alternatives range from 1-4 years of education and cost between 3 - 10 times the cost of becoming a real estate agent.

Mr. Thompson's company, The American School of Real Estate Express, has posted a comparison of the top ten careers one can get attain online compared with becoming a real estate agent. That comparison, seen here, provides compelling evidence to support his assertions.

What is as convincing as Mr. Thompson's data is the 2,500 aspiring real estate professionals who, in the last few months of 2008, took the real estate licensing exam in New York City alone. Mr. Thompson asks, "What are these 2,500 future real estate agents saying? They are saying that a new career in real estate makes perfect sense."
