Real Estate Hiring Trends Survey Report
Reveals Increased Pace of Business

According to the newly released 2016 SelectLeaders Hiring Trends Survey Report, 67 percent of real estate professionals and employers believe the “pace of business” and their associated work and output increased in 2015. Unfortunately, these workloads are unlikely to be lightened any time soon. Three quarters of respondents believe hiring will either remain the same or decrease over the coming year.

On a positive note, compensation may be increasing alongside workloads; 70 percent of respondents expect their total compensation to increase in 2016. This prediction seems to be based on previous experience, as the majority of respondents reported that they had received an increase in compensation in 2015.

The majority of survey respondents also were unconcerned about the impact of the presidential race and election, with 74 percent reporting that it would have no effect on their businesses. However, some did not see this as positive, stating that they would prefer presidential candidates who more focused on the economy.

Clarifying Code Confusion

In the United States today, more than 30,000 state and local governments adopt and enforce building codes and standards based upon model codes and national standards. Unfortunately, in all but a handful of states, each local jurisdiction has literally hundreds of their own local amendments to those codes and standards—amendments differ from city to city, county to county and state to state.

How do you know which codes and standards apply in the jurisdiction where your buildings are located, as well as the potential costs and construction options of complying with those regulations? provides a single source to address the code confusion dilemma.

The MADCAD database is a cloud-based version of the Model Building Codes and Standards library and currently provides more than 69,000 model building codes and standards, rules and regulations enforced by U.S. states and local jurisdictions in a searchable and continuously updated database offered as an annual subscription. has recently added the BOMA area measurement standards, ADA Guidebook and Building Systems Desk Reference to its extensive library of code and standards resources.
