What does a Real Estate Analyst do?

Real estate analysts provide financial analysis to support the financing, acquisition, marketing and leasing of properties. They provide expert advice to real estate companies and other firms based on economic conditions, market trends, and financial situations. Real estate analysts research market trends and statistics to forecast immediate futures within the industry and determine the best use of cash according to a company's goals. They also perform due diligence to broker real estate deals and interact with sellers and buyers in the commercial sector.

Real estate analysts meet with clients to determine their criteria. They travel to properties and sites to meet with investors, buyers, and or sellers to decide if it fits their needs and criteria. When a suitable location is found, they help negotiate the related deals and transactions by drawing up and gathering necessary paperwork and forms. Real estate analysts need a real estate license for the state in which they are working. Some employers require a bachelor's degree in real estate, accounting, or finance.
