I won’t exactly come across as a visionary if I point out the real estate has been in the slumps for the past few years. By the way, just in case you missed it, water is wet. Now that I’m done stating the obvious, it’s time to start digging through some of the recent numbers that the National Association of Realtors (NAR) has been kicking out regarding the future of our industry. What they mean to the industry is sometimes not that obvious.

Let me start by pointing out that recent NAR missives are pointing at an increase in residential and commercial property sales. While this is certainly good news, it’s also that time of the year. While we can all certainly hope that this continues to trend upward, at present it looks like it’s going to do so slowly and considering the glut of inventory currently in market it could be a while before we start hearing any good numbers about new housing starts. That said, getting better is better than getting worse. Unfortunately, what these trends mean for real estate professionals who are currently in the trenches is uncertain.

Part of the good news is that the competition among Realtors who buy and sell houses has improved greatly due to a sharp decline in the number of licensed Realtors talking them on. According to various numbers released by the NAR and others, in 2006 there are approximately 1.4 million NAR members. I have also seen estimates as high as 2.6 million licensed realtors for that period of time. Today, again according to the NAR, that number is under 1 million.

According to the 2011 NAR member profile poll, while things are looking up a bit, Realtors really are working harder and making less. In fact, the median income of an average realtor dropped 4.5% last year to $34,100. This was preceded by a 3% decline in 2009. Those members who list themselves as broker/Realtors earned a median salary of $48,700 while sales agents earned an average of $24,900 in 2010. Even more disproportionate is that NAR members who’ve been in the business for two years or less earned a median income of $8,900 while those who’ve been in the business for 16 years or more earned $47,100. While good news for those agents who stick it out year after year, this raises a red flag not only for the challenges that new broker/Realtor’s face in entering this market but also is going to create a generational gap between home buyers and the professional Realtors there to help them.
