This is a tough time to be trying to sell real estate.
This makes it a good time to create associations with real estate offices in your area. Some homeowners are paying real estate "stagers" hundreds, even thousands of dollars to come in and give their homes a clean, stylish, and clutter-free look, in hopes of bettering their chances of selling their house. Just having clean carpeting and rugs can help to make the home more attractice to prospective purchasers. Offer to do a free demo with the owners or managers of r.e. offices in your vicinity, and try in that way to build working relationships with them, making you the "go-to" person when they need this type of service. I had two jobs last week which came about thru connections with different r.e. offices: one for just under $600, the other for $370.
