(my bold) KHS445 pretty much took the words out of my mouth with his response ... and answers my bold ...Get better clients. Pretty simple. (What I’ve learned here)
How do you get these clients etc. they won’t tell you. Just don’t work for AMC’s because they don’t. (They lie)
A large number of threads over the years have explained how to build your client base. There is no magic bullet or a guaranteed list of non-AMC clients. Most of the suggestions have centered around beating the bushes and offering your services to local banks, credit unions, attorneys, real estate agents/brokers, etc. Services can range from helping out with a listing amount, assisting a buyer's broker in coming up with a value, providing a buyer or seller with value information, divorces, inhouse mortgages, home equity loans, etc. You need to work hard and build your reputation as the go to person when it comes to valuing real estate and the real estate process in your marketing area. The goal is to build a level of trust with other real estate professionals who are comfortable relying on you being an independent voice of knowledge and reason.
