Real Estate Salary Survey

The Real Estate Salary Survey reports compensation data for 98 benchmark jobs related to managing real estate for others, selling, renting and/or buying real estate for others, and appraising real estate. The survey includes residential and commercial agents and brokers, property management groups, and subdividers and developers. The industry survey is available by geographic area (US Region or US National) for $589.

The Real Estate Salary Survey documents market-based pay data for 9 executive and 89 non-management salary benchmark jobs from up to three databases: digitized public sources, ERI Assessor Series data, and direct participants. The following information is reported for each job title (salary data are shown in means, medians, and percentile cuts):

  • Annual Salary
  • Incentive/Variable Pay
  • Total Direct Annual Compensation
  • Job Description
  • Graph with a Trend Line and Data Points
  • Selected Characteristics of the Occupation (SCO)

Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires. Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
