Economists' Outlook

Housing stats and analysis from NAR's research experts.
  • The median age of REALTORS® continued its climb since 2007, and is now 57-years-old. In past years, median age hovered around 52.
  • The incremental increase in age may be attributed to professionals staying in real estate longer and putting off retirement.
  • Forty-one percent of REALTORS® are more than 60 years old, while only 2 percent are under 30 years old.
  • Those who function as brokers and managers without selling tend to be the oldest.
