What Lazy Hazy Days of Summer

The 2014 Cornell/SelectLeaders Job Barometer – Assessment of the Real Estate Job Market – confirms what we see today on our site, more opportunities than in 2007. The job functions and sectors that led the recovery – such as multi-family, asset managers – are finally being surpassed by those that took the longest to recover – development, single family and retail. Here are the hottest jobs in real estate in 2014 (1) Retail-15.7% (2) Property Managers-15.2% (3) Single Family Housing-14.4% (4) Development / Project Managers-13.8% (5) Multi-family-11% (6) Office-9.8% (7) Corporate Real Estate-8.1% (8) Investment/Asset Management-6.9% (9)Brokerage & Leasing-6.2% (10) REIT-6.1% (11) Industrial-3.5% However, If you were looking a year ago finance led. REIT’s have given single-family a multi-family spin. As US manufacturing returns keep your eye on industrial. The hottest jobs ebb and flow loosely following the development cycle. Thankfully we appear to be having development cycles at last.
