A new real estate agent who has been around for less than 2 years makes a gross median income of $8,930. 56% of new agents make less than $10,000 annually. Now, don’t let that number deter you. When 40% of new agents are part-timers, it’s hard to make more when you don’t have enough time or aren’t putting in more time. More time, more opportunities, more deals.
On the brighter side, those who stay in real estate longer earn more. In the 3-5 year experience range, the gross median income is $42,500. In the 6-15 year experience range, this gross median income is bumped up to $63,240. For those practicing real estate for 16 years or more, the gross median income is $78,850. Real estate can be hard, but hard work definitely pays off!
