How a mom saved her family from getting evicted – Be a mortgage and real estate broker

Recently, we have heard of numerous families getting evicted from their homes due to unpaid rent. What can we do to save our families from such a harsh situation?

This is a situation which can be faced by joint hard work of a family.

Let me tell you a story of a friend, who lives with her three kids and husband in a rented facility. She decided to stay at home to be able to take care of her kids. But, the salary of her husband was not enough to pay the bills and other necessities of the house. Slowly the debt started increasing and they came close to their house eviction.

Then, a neighbour advised her about the job of a Real Estate and Mortgage Broker.

A mortgage broker helps a landowner by planning credit applications for a bank or loaning establishment. They gather monetary data from borrowers to prepare documents to be submitted to the guarantors. They write credit history, collect credit reports, and file out loan applications for their clients.

A real estate broker shows properties to the buyers. They are licensed to sell homes. They receive payment when the loan on house is closed.

She then decided to get the required licenses and certifications and start her own brokerage business. It is not a full-time job. You can work at your own pace from your home. You just need to leave home for meeting with your clients and lenders.

Within a short time span of 6 months, my friend was able to repay her debts and today they are happy working family.
