Alright, now that you are all caught up let's get in to phase 2. What are the up front costs associated with becoming a Real Estate Agent? The more you know, the more prepared you will be. Here is a list of possible expenses. This can vary depending on several circumstances. This is just a sample expense list and these are all ball park numbers.

Total: Give or take you're looking at right around $2,000. You are in essence creating your own business and this will be around what you're looking at for your upfront cost.
