It all depends on how hard you want to work, Breaking into the Real Estate Market is difficult and even more so today. You would be best off looking at what the costs are involved and also asking agents what they think of their real estate experience. Check out: http://www.oregon.gov/REA/LIC/exam_info.shtml

Right now is a horrible time to become an agent. Even in areas that haven't been greatly effected by the declining markets realtors are still having problems finding new clients and selling the properties of the homes they're listing. And with tighter restrictions on lending it's difficult for purchasers to qualify for a mortgage with anything less than great credit. I'd ask a few realtors in your area how their business is doing. i'd bet that most aren't having half the closings they were a year ago. But, perhaps I'm wrong make some friends in the industry and see how they're doing before you make the commitment to enter an industry that is potentially floundering right now.
