The economy is still rather tight and people are not only looking for new jobs but some people have decided to move in another direction and find a new career. Real estate has perhaps been hit the hardest by the economic downturn but there are careers in real estate that are booming.

Realtors

Becoming a realtor now is probably not the ideal job track for many people at this point in time but for the right person it can still be a very lucrative and rewarding career.

Landlord

If you?re financially stable this is a great time to buy some real estate as the market is great for buyers it?s also a good time to become a landlord as more people are opting to rent rather than own so the market should be booming.

Property Manager

With more people entering the landlord game as a profession rather than casually there are more properties owned by single entities, this means that maintaining the properties themselves is difficult and more property managers are needed.

Home Stagers

Homes are still sitting on the market longer than most sellers would want and every little advantage they can get toward a sale is worth it. Home staging is a proven way to improve the appeal of a home on the market and professional home stagers are in demand.
