2019 February Apartment Jobs Snapshot
The Apartment Jobs Snapshot is a monthly product from NAAEI highlighting labor force trends in the rental housing industry. It examines the total job posting trends by position, category and geography, as well as providing fresh and detailed updates for industry employers. The snapshot will feature enhanced analysis at the close of each quarter.
More than 8,000 apartment jobs were available across the country during February, representing 36.8 percent of the real estate sector, just under last month’s figure. Denver placed in the top 5 markets for the third month in a row, slightly edged out by Indianapolis. This month’s edition highlights the leasing consultant, where the greatest concentration of demand was in Austin. Median market salaries were below $28,000 per year, but most employers would consider candidates with less than two years of experience, yet another sign of a tight labor market.
