Is the National Association of Realtors increasing its membership? Across the U.S., various cities have experienced an increase in members.
On a national level, according to the National Association of Realtors, at the end of March, there were 1,003,462 Realtors. Currently at the $80 dues rate, that’s a theoretical total of $80,276,960 in dues for the year.
At the current number of members, if the proposed NAR dues rise passes, that $80M would be an annual figure of $120,415,440.
From 2006, membership has dropped 10 percent. This statistic might look bad, however, March NAR stats from between 2000 and 2011 reveal a 37 percent increase; membership is actually
up, despite some reports that it's actually down.
