This article will focus on the aspect of people wanting to get all they want with ease or at the comfort of their computer. The Job here being described is the work of an Agent.
A property agent (also known as a Realtor) is a fast growing job with great revenue and income. These property agents look for vacant apartments, houses and landed properties that are available for lease, rent or even for sale.
A property agent meets the owner of the property and discuss on the terms of agreement and benefits when he brings a client to rent, lease or even buy the property at the agreed amount.
The property agent then goes out in search of a client who is interested in the property and then brings him or her to the owner.
In some areas of this country, a property agent who brought a client to rent an apartment can get a minimum of five percent (5%) of the total rent paid to the owner of the property and in some cases it goes higher up to ten percent (10%).
Properties for outright sale, property agents get sometime five percent (5%) and sometimes even more than five percent. This to some extent depends on the bargaining power of the property agent and on the agreement between him and the buyer and seller.
It is worth mentioning here that the percentage mentionedis paid to the property agent by both the buyer and the seller of the property. So at the end of the day he the agent goes home with at least ten percent of the property cost.
Now you may start wondering how to start searching for vacant properties or the owners of the properties. This is very tiring and could be embarrassing sometimes. But do not worry there is a fool proof means of getting it done.

Simple, you walk up to the owner and tell him you are an agent and you have a lot of buyers in need of his brand of car. So you ask him how much he is willing to sell the car minimum and how much commission in percentage he will give you when you bring a buyer. After agreeing on the percentage you go out in search for a buyer, when you get one you bring him to the seller and then after the sales, you get your commission.
Note that this requires that you take the picture of the car so that you can show people whom you tell about the car. This helps stirs up their interest to buy when they see the picture of the car.
Meanwhile you can also scale up the price of the car when you meet a buyer who is crazy about the car. In a case where the seller refuses on commission, you have to let him know that in this case whatever you add to his selling price is your own benefit and he should not interfere with that.
