Happy Labor Day to our members, who are long overdue for a break! According to the latest Member Profile, the median number of hours worked by a NAR member is 40 hours a week (meaning half work MORE than 40 hours a week), with managers and appraisers often working even longer hours—a median of 50 hours a week.
77 percent of our members say real estate is their only occupation, while 22 percent work a second job on top of being a REALTOR®.
Additionally, many of our members have children at home, with the typical household being three people for those who are under 50 years old.
I hope all our members enjoy the long weekend and try not work too hard!
