Dodo birds and dinosaurs have been heading for real estate extinction for years now. Some of them move so slowly that they don't realize they have already been passed by or passed over by the generation of Buyers who are fully integrated with technology.
Real estate agents are an endangered species.
And, like dodo birds, jobs already lost in real estate are not likely to come back anytime soon.
That's according to the new report from the Labor Department, which speculates that most or all of the 8.4 million lost jobs will be regained by 2014.
The new jobs will most likely be filled by two categories: high paying, high skilled jobs or low-paying, low-skill jobs. The middle, it appears, has been sliced out and shipped out overseas.
Of course, as a real estate agent, you no doubt have already seen what having less real estate agents is like on the industry. Perhaps the job-losses were long-overdue residual effects from having too many "me, too" agents.
For the fittest who've survived, however, your evolution is not yet complete.
The real estate world will continue to rapidly change, from less inventory with lower prices to clients who demand paperless, real-time collaboration and updates. Your job is to evolve and grow as this change occurs.
The best part, though?
No matter the changes in the economy, they'll never be able to outsource real estate agents.
