More Realtors are stepping up their use of technology in their work, according to the National Association of Realtors’ 2010 Member Profile.
The 93-question survey profile is based on 6,830 responses from NAR members. Statistics for compensation, earnings, sales volume and number of transactions correspond to calendar year 2009; the rest are from early 2010.
Realtors’ median gross income fell 3 percent in 2009 to $35,700, according to the survey report, while net income rose 0.9 percent, to $23,400. NAR attributed the increase to a drop in total expenses, to $5,480 from $5,810 in 2008.
