This April, one of Inman’s most popular recurring theme months returns: Back to Basics. All month, real estate professionals from across the country share what’s working for them, how they’ve evolved their systems and tools, and where they’re investing personally and professionally to drive growth in 2022. It’s always smart to go Back to Basics with Inman.

Pulse is a recurring column where we ask for readers’ takes on varying topics in a weekly survey and report back with our findings.

Launching your own business, especially one with as many moving parts as real estate, can be a pricey proposition, especially when you’re starting out. For many agents, bootstrapping is just part of the deal, so they may not have access to the expertise of financial planners, attorneys and other professional assistance.

What’s one financial tip you wish you’d known as a newbie? How did you learn it and how do you use your knowledge to help new agents who are coming into the business? If you could do it all over again, what would you do differently? Let us know your thoughts.

We’ll post our findings with the top answers next week on Tuesday.
