Ruth Ann on Real Estate

I hope you enjoy my thoughts on real estate, market statistics, how-to's, and pieces I find interesting on buying, selling, remodeling, new construction, investing, and saving your resources.

Thanks for taking the time to read my posts. Feedback is always welcome/encouraged. Feel free to ask questions. About me: My business is primarily residential real estate (helping buyers, sellers, landlords & tenants), and I generally work with referred clients. I love real estate because I learn something new every day and get to work with great people. I am blogging so I can share some of my insight and experiences with those of you who want to buy or sell. Enjoy!

Average Realtor Completes 7 Transactions Yearly Per N A R 2010 Member Survey


July 29th, 2010


 This is more scary market news to me. The average Realtor in the US completes only 7 sales per year. In my opinion it's hard to stay on top of things professionally if you only do it a handful of times each year. I think you learn through experience. Here's the scoop from the NAR 2010 Member Profile that outlines business activity of Realtors®

*In 2009, the typical brokerage specialist had seven transactions—the same number as the previous year.

*Almost half of REALTORS® completed at least one transaction involving a property in foreclosure and 40 percent completed at least one transaction involving a short sale.

*
The typical REALTOR® worked 40 hours per week in 2009, a trend that has continued for several years.

*
The typical REALTOR® earned 18 percent of their business from past clients and customers

*
REALTORS® spent a median of $220 to maintain a website in 2009.

*
Thirty-six percent of REALTORS® reported having generated some business from holding an open house.
