In February’s edition of NAAEI’s Apartment Jobs Snapshot, over 11,500 apartment jobs were available, accounting for 39.7 percent of the broader real estate sector. Jacksonville, Fla.; Austin, Texas; Kansas City, Mo.; Houston, and San Antonio, Texas; had the highest share of apartment job openings. This month’s edition highlights leasing consultants, with market salaries in the 90th percentile reaching $36,593. The demand for skilled leasing consultants was three times the U.S. average in Austin, Texas; Raleigh, N.C.; Denver, and Seattle. In addition to requiring typical leasing skills, employers are seeking talent with Yardi Software, Microsoft Office, organizational, and detail-oriented skills.
