April Apartment Jobs Snapshot
The Apartment Jobs Snapshot is a new 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 quarterly editions with more expansive data, starting in April 2018.
In the April edition of NAAEI’s Apartment Jobs Snapshot, available leasing consultant positions topped the 1,000 mark, driven by openings in Dallas, DC, LA, Houston and Atlanta. The number of openings in the apartment industry was in line with a recent release from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which reported that job openings across the country were at their highest levels ever recorded. The Nashville MSA had the greatest percentage of apartment jobs compared to total real estate jobs, with multi-national firms and local and regional players vying for the same talent. This month’s snapshot highlights the property manager/community manager position, in demand across the country, notably in Florida markets.
