This real estate market is really tight right now, but, there are some small signs of the market making a strong comeback. It has also been a "weeder market" meaning it's weeded out a lot of professionals.
So, in order to keep your head straight until things really pick up, try joining community organizations, boards, planning organizations, or religious organizations where you can hold seminars, educate a focused group and be viewed as an expert on the advantages of homeownership, or the need to sell if you find that a family is in over their heads or just want to scale back their lifestyle.
Keep farming activities going while you wait on the market, and try teaming up with strategic partners to create exciting workshops.
Just a little advise from one professional agent to another.
