Location, location, location” might be the catchphrase of the real-estate profession, but it applies just as much to realtors as it does to their clients. After all, success in the industry hinges on both an agent’s work ethic and area of operation.
The current real estate market is very healthy. January to February 2019 showed the biggest month-to-month rise in sales since 2015. But even as the market adjusts as a whole, certain cities remain hotspots. In the coming year, real-estate agents may want to relocate to places with the highest demand for housing, and that pay the best for their expert guidance.
To determine the best markets for this particular profession, WalletHub compared more than 170 U.S. cities across 19 key indicators of a healthy real-estate environment. Our data set ranges from sales per agent to annual median wage for real-estate agents to housing-market health index. Read on for our findings, advice and insight from experts, and a full description of our methodology.
