Where are the jobs? Which places have the most real estate analyst opportunities?
The greatest number of opportunities are going to be in the big cities where there are many investment firms: NY City, Chicago, San Francisco, and LA...job growth depends on the health of the CRE industry as a whole. Cash rich firms are always going to have a need for analysts to help them invest. Comm RE is recovering right now so the job market for these opportunites is thawing. If you have a business/finance/accounting degree from a decent school and the tenacity to not give up you can land one of these jobs. Good luck
