This has to be the best year to be a real estate agent!
Yes, this is a tough market, but isn't it great to weed out the bad agents. I find it refreshing to deal with the true professionals who are committed to the industry. Those of us who continue will be in a great position as the market recovers.
With that said, I am curious to know how many active agents are supplementing their income, or started a new business to survive the down market?
I think I have tapped into something that others might find interesting.
As you know, 90% of listings require some type of repair. Simple things like new paint, granite countertops, carpet cleaning and other minor repairs. Because of this, I started a business of fixing up my clients homes into a full blown kitchen & bathroom remodeling business, The Model Home Look (www.themodelhomelook.com).
Again, I am curious to know if others have found opportunity to supplement their incomes in this market.
