I'm having trouble discovering, what major I should be selecting in my college apps. What would benefit me most, or what would be the best path to become a real estate agent. Would it be best to double major? What are the benefits from it?
I second the other answers here. You can become a real estate agent without a college degree, which would delay your career development by four years and cost money without a directly helping you become an agent.
Going to college is important for building a career on the corporate side of a real estate firm. If you are interested in a field like real estate management or marketing, an undergraduate business degree will get you there. This will also open doors for you to be eligible for niche masters programs relating to real estate.
Hope this helps!
It is true that you do not need a college degree to become a Realtor. Assuming you already know that and want to know which majors could be most beneficial, I would propose Business, Entrepreneurship, Management, or Pre-law. Some colleges offer Real Estate focuses, so you might want to look into those (for example, Purdue offers Business Administration: Real Estate degree. There are several others.)
As college is becoming crazy expensive, unless you have a lot of funding, you may want to consider skipping the college degree and focusing on obtaining the credentials needed to become a realtor in your state. Going to a 4 year school when it isn't necessary can set you back in terms of earnings and add a lot of debt. The combination of which will really hamper you in terms of where you could be in 10-20 years (had you done the minimum to be a realtor vs. adding a degree).
