The Role of Real Estate in an Economy

Real estate is as vital - if not more vital - to the economy as any other industry you can think of. Real estate creates employment in various sectors, for surveyors, architects, builders, engineers, facility managers, those that supply raw materials to construction companies, and even legal and financial advisors.

As an enabler of economic activity, real estate plays a significant role in the provision of infrastructure. It provides the space and infrastructure without which businesses will not be able to operate effectively, leading to the stagnation of certain sectors of the economy. It also provides living and public services infrastructure to improve and sustain the well-being of citizens.

Last but not least, real estate is an attractive asset class for institutional investors such as insurance companies, sovereign wealth funds, and pension funds. This creates maximum returns and investment opportunities for savers and pensioners worldwide, and makes large urban regeneration projects more feasible.

The Demand for Experienced Realtors Worldwide

Homes, offices, and different kinds of properties are bought and sold on a daily basis. Property sellers need someone to link them up to property buyers, and property buyers in turn, need someone to inform them on their options, and also facilitate the whole process of acquiring a property. Real estate brokers, of course, are the only ones who can perform these tasks best, and so buyers and sellers of real estate always turn to them for help, advice and guidance.

Several factors are likely to contribute to a rise in the demand for experienced real estate brokers worldwide. For one, the millennial generation is on the verge of entering the prime working and household-building age. Their entry into the housing market will, most likely, lead to a higher demand for residential real estate agents and brokers.

On the other hand, with an improved job market and increased consumer spending, there will be an increase in demand for experienced realtors who can handle industrial and commercial real estate transactions.

However, as the economy continues to expand and more individuals and businesses look to buy new properties, job competition may increase and new realtors may find it hard to make headway without experience. A real estate internship with AIP will be a solid starting point to gain this much needed experience.
