Real estate is unique to many other businesses, and specifically different from employment. Agents must recognize how to allocate gross income to the appropriate areas to avoid the stress that results from financial issues. In this session we will discuss the allocation of commissions toward areas such as marketing, reserves, business expenses, operations and profit for personal use. We will identify expecting expenditures for marketing and what returns should be realized, how much money should go toward reserves and how much reserves to maintain, and what portion of the gross income may be used toward personal needs and wants.
