|I've recently been looking into making some software for small to medium sized businesses and someone I know mentioned how there's software used for a part of the real estate world where there's only a single big player and they're quite expensive.|
I am hesitant to build software that already exists because it seems sort of pointless in the grand scheme of the universe. And it seems like a tough spot to compete only on price. But it does seem like a pretty safe bet for making some income and the scope of the project is feasible for a single developer over some months.
Any advice or opinions appreciated.
