From a fellow real estate blogger:
Earlier today I was chatting with a random stranger. Oddly enough the topic of real estate came up. Random stranger said he’d often pondered getting his real estate license.
I tried to wave the guy off, but he wouldn’t listen.
He asked me a question that I couldn’t answer…
How many Realtors are there per capita, and how does Arizona compare to other states?
Here are the results:
I thought it would be interesting to see where Massachusetts would rank on this list. I mean lets face it, everyone I seem to meet is either; student, lawyer or Realtor (I think I need to socialize more).
Based on the National Association of Realtors (NAR) Monthly Membership Report for July 2010, Massachusetts has 19,422 Realtors. According to the U.S. Census Bureau Massachusetts has a population of 6,593,587. If I calculate (I hope I don’t mess this up) there is one Realtor for every 339 people living in Massachusetts.
File Under: We need a larger population.
