As a real estate agent, there are times that you struggle maintaining a consistent income. It’s nothing to be ashamed about, its the nature of the real estate market. Some months you’re closing deals left and right, and others can leave you worrying about staying out of the red. So what can you do, as an agent, to supplement your income? How do you keep the cash flowing when you don’t have any upcoming sales?
As an agent, you can offer your valuable, expert opinion on the real estate market and homes. Start a blog, or write freelance articles to bring in a little extra each month. You already know how important a strong social media following is, now give your followers a reason to tune in. Daily, weekly, and monthly blog posts are a great way to increase traffic to your website and develop some ad revenue. Contributing to a local magazine or newspaper can also bring in some much needed cash.
The best advice we can give you is to try rentals. Yes, rentals! Helping clients find rentals is a great way to supplement your income in low sales months. Rentals are fast and easy to do, and can generate revenue immediately. We know what you are thinking, how do I even start working rentals? Don’t worry, Rental Beast is here to help.
