I don't think so, Ash...Linden Lab will happily take your money at any age.  But I would urge caution.  What do you mean by an "Estate Agent business?"  Oh, never mind...I don't need to know.  But what YOU should know is that any business involving virtual land is risky.  The land market is highly competitive, the investment required is significant, and the profit margins are low (and often negative.)  Before going into business, you had better have a thorough understanding of virtual land, how it works, what it's worth, what you can charge, and how to manage it.  

Do you currently own any land?  If not, DON'T start by buying an entire estate region.  Get a Premium membership, and buy a small parcel on the Mainland.  Live there for a few months.  Build things on it.  Terraform.  Experiment with all the land settings.

Then sell or abandon that land, and buy a small parcel on a Private Estate.  Live there.  Note what things are the same as Mainland, and which are different.  Talk to the estate owner.  Many estate owners are delighted to discusss the details of estate management with you.

When you've owned land for about a year, especially if you have tried renting some or all of it out to others, you'll be ready to think about buying your own private estate region.

NOTE:  You probably don't want to buy your region in the land store.  You can get a better deal by buying an existing private region from another resident.  To find regions for sale, see this forum: https://community.secondlife.com/t5/Regions-for-Sale-Full-Private/bd-p/RegionsforSaleFullRegions

You may also want to buy a "grandfathered" region.  These have a higher up-front cost, but only cost $195 per month, rather than the standard $295 per month.  It adds up fast.
