Has anyone considered becoming a real estate agent just to save on those RE agent fees? If you do just one transaction per decade for yourself, seems like you'll still do better even considering ongoing TREB/OREA/brokerage fees. Need to spend $5k initially on courses/exams and 6-12months of time, but seems to make sense long term. Am I missing anything?

Nope. Plenty of discussions on RFD about this. It’s just a pain in the butt keeping the license if you aren’t active.

24 hrs of continuing education every 2 years and 700-900 in annual fees to maintain the license. In the grand scheme of things (and compared to the cost/effort required to maintain my work related certs) that's nothing.

I have considered it myself. Even moving into full time realtor role where you can probably make more than what you would do in consulting. Sell 5 houses and you probably looking at cashing in $150K where you can expense food and gas.

Go on RFD and find yourself a cashback realtor. On a 2.5% commission, you could easily get 60% of that on a 1m purchase.

What’s RFD?

Red Flag Deals. Canadian deal website.
