Hang your Inactive Florida Real Estate License here

Right now you are probably wondering what you should do with the Florida real estate license that you worked so hard to get. Don’t worry, you are not alone as there are currently over 90,000 people who have a Inactive Florida real estate license and another over 34,000 who are on Involuntary Inactive status and will go Null and Void over the next 2 years.

Real estate license example

The reason why there are so many people with this status is that when they got their license, the real estate school they went to never really explained to them about the Board of Realtors. They had no clue that in order to be a full-time agent you had to pay an organization $1,000+ each and every year in order to sell real estate. In order to be successful in selling real estate full-time, you would have to join the Board and the MLS as they have regulated our business to where there is no way around it. If you are producing over $500,000 in sales a year or more, then the Realtor/MLS services provide a lot and it might be worth it. If you are not producing this volume each year, it's questionable to pay out these annual fees.

Most of these agents who are on Inactive status currently have other obligations besides selling real estate full-time. The best option for these agents is to place their license with a real estate referral company. These types of companies are not associated with the Board of Realtors or the MLS. You will have no Board or MLS fees if you are Active with this type of company. Instead of selling though, you would refer any of your prospects out to someone who does sell full-time as a Realtor. This Realtor would then pay a “referral fee” typically 30-25% of the total gross commission to your brokerage who would then pay you your cut of the commission. Referrals are not bound to just one state but to all states throughout the U.S. which means if you have a Florida license, you could refer a prospect to a brokerage in California and collect the “referral fee”.
