The median age and years of experience of Realtors® has decreased as new and younger professionals enter the industry, according to the 2016 National Association of Realtors® Member Profile.
The typical member reported a median of 10 years of experience in real estate, down from 12 years in last year’s report. Realtors®’ median age also decreased from 57 in 2014 to 53 in 2015, the lowest it has been since 2008 when the median age was 52.
The median gross income of Realtors® also fell last year, from $45,800 in 2014 to $39,200 in 2015; not surprising, given members’ income typically corresponds with experience. Those with 16 years or more of experience reported a median gross income of $73,400, up from $68,800 in 2014, while members with two years or less of experience had a median gross income of $8,500, a decrease from $9,100 last year.
