We are pleased to include survey responses from the U.S. for the first time in the annual Macdonald & Company survey report, reflecting a truly global picture of remuneration in Real Estate and the Built Environment.
In 2022, real estate professionals earned 31% higher; with a median annual salary of $130,000, when compared with the national average found in other white-collar/professional services industries.
As a result of salary adjustments and promotions, we found that 60% of real estate professionals received a salary increase in 2022. Those that saw an increase in their base salary compensation by moving to a new employer saw an average increase of $20,000; double the amount than they saw from an increase/adjustment by remaining with their current employer.
The gender wage gap in the real estate industry in the U.S. stands at 11.3%, which is lower than the wider national reported wage gap at 19.8%.
