When’s the best time to switch to a mortgage broker career?

Are you itching to escape the boredom of your current position and start in something completely new? Has becoming a mortgage broker caught your eye as a possible solution?

If so, you might be wondering when’s the best time to make the switch.

When’s the best time to become a mortgage broker?

The short (and honest) answer is anytime. If there’s one thing you learn working in real estate, it’s that you should never try and time the market. The same is true of trying to change careers at the perfect time. There are simply too many variables in play to try and work out the opportune time to jump ship.

Your task, then, becomes determining when you’re ready to make a switch. For that, there are a few signs it could finally be time:

1. You’re sick of the lack of self-direction

A regular job can result in a crushing lack of self-direction. You have to do everything you’re told and you don’t have any autonomy as to the kind of work you choose to take on.

As a mortgage broker, on the other hand, you get to be your own boss. You’re the one who decides which clients to take on, how much work to do and what direction your company will go in. The steering wheel is truly in your hands.

A lack of experience doesn’t need to stand in the way of a career in mortgage broking. When you join Red Rock Brokers, you’ll have access – among other things – to our great mentoring services, which can whip you into shape in no time. We’ll guide you through the process of getting set up in a way that lets you determine your own direction.

2. You no longer want to work non-stop 

Are you always looking to take time off but can’t because you constantly have to be on the work hamster-wheel? Well with mortgage broking, you have the chance to build a passive source of income. That means if you decide to take some time off, your income stream doesn’t dry up. You can take the time to live your life in the way you want to live it.

3. You don’t want to be in an office every day

Does your current position require you to be in a office for a certain number of hours a day? A career as a mortgage broker offers the chance to work remotely. How does going to the office once a week just for meetings sound?
