Most Stressful Jobs for 2011
Working 9.5 hours a day and with an average salary of $53,100, real estate agent is considered the 10th most stressful job of 2011 by CareerCast.com.
The slowly improving housing market puts real estate agents in a lower stress position than they were last year… However, their incomes are based on commission, and there is uncertainty regarding future sales and job availability. Real estate agents also work long, erratic hours, spending much of their time showing properties to clients. They must be extremely independent, and able to handle sales quotas and deadline pressures.Sound pretty accurate? So what could make this job less stressful? For starters, how about clean, decluttered, light, bright and move-in ready homes?
Whether you are primarily a seller’s agent or a buyer’s agent, everyone benefits when sellers properly prepare their homes for sale.
Help reduce your stress – and your fellow agents’ stress – by encouraging sellers to stage their homes. Home staging can put you in the top 10 in sales, not stress.
