U.S. National Association of Realtors: number of members 2008-2018

Number of National Association of Realtors members in the United States from 2008 to 2018 (in millions)

U.S. National Association of Realtors: number of members 2008-2018 The number of members of the National Association of Realtors (NAR) has steadily increased since 2012 Reaching a membership of 1.36 million, an all-time high. This trend also reflects the recovery of the property market after the financial crisis of 2007-2009, as the volume of home sales began to climb from 2011. The NAR is a North American trade association for real estate workers formed in 1908 and currently based in Chicago, Illinois.
Employment in the real estate sector

The upward in NRA membership is mirrored in overall employment in the real estate sector in the United States. In 2016, 1.6 million people were employed in the sector, which indicates that the majority of workers are member of the NAR. Employment in the sector is set to increase in firms with less than 2,500 employees until 2026. Larger firms – those with 2,500 employees or more – are forecast to decrease the number of employees in the near future.

Membership growth ties in with growth in home sales

The growth in NAR membership also correlates with the growth of residential property sales. For instance, the number of new houses sold in the U.S. has been on the rise since 2011. American adults as a whole have been steady in their view that home ownership is an important part of the American Dream. However, the share of American Millennials – those born between 1981 and 1996 - who view homeownership as important has been fluctuating since 2010. This adds an element of uncertainty to the future of the housing market, because Millennials are in their mid-twenties and thirties, which is widely viewed as the best time to buy a home from a home equity perspective.
