More & More real estate blogs (The List)

Breaking_ground_3 First of all: “The market is booming! How come real estate agents aren’t getting rich?” An illuminating Slate article that illustrates my old points: No. 1. The average agent sells only a few homes a year, and No. 2: The median annual earnings of real estate agents were $30,930 in 2002. That’s a shame – Would YOU let a person earning $31,000 / year handles your biggest asset?

The historic homes blogger, a new blog by Realtor Frances Flynn Thorsen of Bethlehem, PA, who is organizing the Real Estate Blog Squad. There are now about 30 Realtors / bloggers who are planning to cover the NAR convention in San Francisco next month, including Craig Newmark, founder of Craigs list (and responsible for the Craigslist Effect). So, if some local readers of Grow-a-brain wish to get together, email me. The convention will take place October 28-31. I’ll probably be hanging around, looking for the old places I knew when I lived in the city in 1986-1990…

I think that income number is a national average. Where you do your business and how well you perform your duties will indicate how much a Realtor makes. The best advice I can give to anyone in the market for a realtor is to ask them for testemonials from their clients. Good luck, everyone!

My 2 cents regarding the national average of Realtors making $31,000 per year. Realtors that are willing to put the time in effort into building their business will be successful and considering that there are so many people in the business that are just part time and don't even sell any real estate I think $31,000 as an average is pretty good. keyword here being average, as in any profession you have the good and the bad.

I just visited a great website on Indian real estate offering all types of properties for sale http://www.clickindia.com/real-estate/
Quite easy to use and a good collection of properties are available.

yes real estate listing sections are very wide in http://www.hindlist.com but the ads are few. i think due to its layout it will soon gain popularity
