I was in similar situation in that I got tired of commercial work. I didn't like working on a file for at least a week. I preferred the "slam bam thank you mam" in residential work. I see property and finish it in 1-2 days. So I produce at least 1 report a day and earn near 5 digits monthly. It's still hard work because I have to juggle my workload and meet a general deadline. I like working on my own. If you go on your own, you need to have a stable source of orders so you should contact well paying lenders/AMCs. Right now, the mortgage rates have increased, thus orders are fewer but I still have work. I just can't be as selective as before and I look at this time as a break. Be prepare for ups and downs in this business.
