My newest article for BiggerPockets is up on whether or not it makes sense for you to pursue your CCIM (Certified Commercial Investment Member) designation. I previously wrote about what the courses entail here, but this article outlines the pros and cons of pursuing your CCIM. In brief, the pros are:
1. Increased Credibility
2. Solid Education
3. Opportunities to network and make new contacts
And the disadvantages are rather simple:
1. The cost
2. The time
A lot of the decision comes down to whether or not you fit the mold. CCIM's are usually held by those in commercial real estate not those in residential. So a house flipper has little incentive to pursue one. The article contains a much more in depth discussion on the topic. Check it out!
