Your profit is in your expenses because real estate rides on a business chassis. The ROI on what and where you spend, always eagle eye it and adjust the spending and time levers.

I know our sales numbers.  We don't have a specific expense/marketing budget, though I know our monthly & repeat costs well and we are very conservative with spending so we talk carefully about each purchase or marketing item that is not a normal expense.  I find that we end up pretty close to the same every year when I prepare tax information for expenses even without following a strict budget.

Most expenses and marketing are fixed and pretty minimal.  I don't know the numbers but the biggest ones are Realbird and AR (before my 500k account).  Outside of that, the per listing costs are print flyers.  The rest is free.
