If you are thinking of starting a career in real estate, operating out of Atlanta, Georgia may just help you become one of the most successful real estate agents in the country. Why you ask? For one, Atlanta-metro is currently a sprawling metropolis of over 5.7 million people and it is rapidly becoming one of the leading economic, social and educational hubs of the country with an area that is the third largest metropolitan region in the Southeast behind greater washing and south Florida.
With that kind of size and growth, more and more people are relocating to the metro area in pursuit of a successful career, to be closer to friends and relatives already living in this region of the country, or simply to enjoy the wonderful amenities and climate. As a result, demands on housing sales are in many cases outpacing inventory and that is a recipe for success.
In recent studies, the average income of a real estate agent in the Atlanta area has out paced the income of real estate agents on a national average. According a recent research, the annual income of real estate agents in Atlanta, Georgia is $38,000.00, which considering the financial crisis that we are finally recovering from only strengthens the outlook for income tied to the housing market.
Along with a very stable resale market, the surrounding areas of the city are developing quickly and more and more new homes are being built in those areas. The range in price of these properties can range from tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands, and of course into the multi-millions and with the vast size of the metro area, these populations of opportunity can become exponentially enormous.
Finally, shifting trends in desired areas are also playing a part in where some of the best real estate opportunities exist. As the number of people wanting to move back into the perimeter of the city is increasing, demand is driving home prices up and turning many areas into “seller’s” markets.
This puts the metro Atlanta real estate agent in a very fortuitous spot supporting both buyers and sellers with marketing and services that support home sales. Other buyers are looking to escape the hustle and bustle of the city and move to one of the many suburbs that Atlanta offers.
The Atlanta “area” boasts over 80 different cities within its boundaries to choose from, so you can imagine the endless possibilities you will have whether you want to focus on just one or many pockets of service and sales coverage when supporting the buying and selling of real estate in the Atlanta area.
