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.

We’ve all made mistakes, especially when starting out in the industry or scaling up. Some of them are easy to fix, requiring only a phone call or email. Others, however, can cost you money, either to make things whole with a client or to get business back on track.

This week, we’re asking readers: What’s the most costly mistake you’ve ever made? How much did it cost you, and how hard was it to correct? Was it a temporary setback, or did it cause you to rethink your whole approach? How did it change the way you do business today?

We’ll compile a list of the top responses and post them on Inman next Tuesday.
