Last year, we took a look at how much real estate agents earn on average in all 50 states based on data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics’ (BLS) 2018 Occupational Employment Statistics data. Now, in 2020, the BLS has updated salary figures for both real estate agents and real estate brokers. Based on the latest BLS data, the average real estate agent annual wage in the United States is $62,060, while the average annual wage for real estate brokers is $81,450.
These two occupations inevitably have very different salaries depending on where you’re working. From state to state, the average salaries for real estate agents and real estate brokers can vary significantly. For example, while the national average annual wage for real estate agents is just over $60,000, in the top-earning state for real estate agents, the average salary is $111,800, which is close to double the national average. Read on to find out where real estate agents and brokers earn the most money and where they earn the least.
