The real estate business is considered as one of the most stressful businesses. It is a roller coaster and there is a tough competition in the market. The busy working schedule, overloaded responsibilities and becoming a 360o manager are more than enough to make you anxious and tired.
As a realtor, you get personally invested in the business but every time you can't expect positive results. Sometimes, everything goes right and sometimes a lot of things go wrong before the deal is signed. The stress may sometimes push you right to the brink and the upshot may be more devastating which may lead to the grossly stressful state of affairs.
A lagging schedule, complex negotiations, sagging sales and a lot more are the reasons behind the stress in the real estate sector. Also, some uncontrollable circumstances such as litigations, shortage of materials & labour, government hurdles, failure of service providers and much more add to the anxiety of realtors.
Stress mostly come uninvited but sometimes the realtors invite them. Suppose a builder has an on-going project. The teamwork is really good, the materials are arriving on time and the flow of money is constant. Now, the developer invests the amount that he got from the buyers for this on-going project into some other project and this is the point where the problem starts. Instead of 'ease of doing business', the realtor ends up with 'stress of doing business'.
