Demand For Real estate jobs Increase

Demand For Real estate jobs IncreaseLatest figures show New Zealand's booming property market is working wonders in real estate jobs and applications for licensed accreditation. About 1500 positions have been advertised so far this year which is according to job listing site Seek, an increase of more than 29 per cent on last year's total.

Mike Bayley, managing director of Bayley's Real Estate said increased market activity and property sales volumes in 2013 are once again making people to consider about real estate careers.

He said, "We are tracking strong demand and job growth out of the Auckland and Christchurch real estate markets in both the residential, commercial and industrial sectors, and are now also seeing increasing signs of positivity in provincial cities."

The upward trend in real estate jobs is particularly evident in Auckland and Canterbury.

Managing director of Auckland's largest real estate agent Barfoot & Thompson, Peter Thompson said, the shortage of housing and the increase in population was pushing house prices and the result was greater sales activity in the Auckland market.

"We are noticing an increase in migration, including a rise in New Zealanders returning from overseas and those moving to Auckland from other parts of the country for job opportunities," he added.
