If you are planning to become an inactive real estate agent in Chatham-Kent, Grey Bruce, Owen Sound Ontario then this message may be extremely important to you. Real estate agents in Ontario now have a better option than to keep their license with a board member broker and incurring the added expense of the fees and dues even though no longer actively trading in sales.
When active, it is a foregone conclusion that being a member of your local board is crucial for sales success. If you plan on earning a living selling real estate, it is suggested that you plan on being a member of your Board too. If the opposite is true and you are taking a break from your real estate profession or if you are a brand new agent in Ontario then you do have a better option.
Join a brokerage who is not a member of any real estate board and this way you will not be liable to pay the board fees and dues as part of your expense. Having said that, make sure the non board member has a very low or no cost to you for holding your license. This is also known as warehousing your real estate license or hanging your licence or the most popular term these days is “parking your license” or “park your licence”.
Joining such a brokerage that holds or parks your license does not have to be for a long term. Remember to ask many question before you register with them. Referral fees paid to you will be a big factor too or at least should be for you. If you sell your own house in Chatham-Kent, Grey Bruce, Owen Sound or buy one or still do business with friends and/or relatives or even former clients you will earn a referral fee and that is great news!!
