An increasing quantity of sales and rising prices are just a couple of signs that the real estate market in Florida is rejuvenated. Yet another sign of the success of Florida's residential real estate market is that more people are becoming real estate agents. The increase started in 2012 and has been growing since then.
Last year, more than 24,100 people were able to pass the Florida state licensing test to become sales associates. This was a jump of 36 percent from 2013, and it is the largest increase since 2009. Class sizes shrank drastically during the most recent recession, but they are bouncing during this period of recovery.
