  Nearly a third of REALTORS say low inventory limited clients in '22  

Amid a significant shortage of housing supply in 2022, 32% of Realtors® named a lack of inventory as the most important factor limiting potential clients from making a purchase, according to the National Association of Realtors®' 2023 Member Profile. This annual report analyzes members' business activity and demographics from the prior year. Housing inventory fell to the lowest level recorded since 1999 as home buyers entered the market at a frenzied pace to lock in historically-low interest rates.

"The report's findings clearly show that the lack of housing inventory is impacting Realtors®' ability to find buyers a home," said Jessica Lautz, NAR deputy chief economist and vice president of research. "Housing inventory and affordability continue to be the top obstacles that hold back potential clients in the housing market."

  Retention Series: How to figure out what your agents want  

Collaborative approach and listening ear gives agents confidence to share honestly

When voicing their desires, agents tend to focus on commission splits. But often what they want—and feel is lacking—is a more collegial and inclusive culture. The key, says Harrison Beacher, managing partner at Coalition Properties Group in Washington D.C., is to create an environment where everyone feels comfortable being honest.

“A culture of care goes such a long way in getting people to tell you how they feel, no holds barred,” says Christina Pappas, President, of The Keyes Company in South Florida. When it comes to retention and cohesion, gleaning feedback is an essential element of business, no matter how uncomfortable.
