Real Estate Investor Demographics

  • As the demographic information of real estate investing conference/summit attendees was unavailable in the public domain, the research process focused on finding the demographics of real estate investors in the U.S. with an assumption that these investors form the majority of the attendees of real estate investing conferences and summits.
  • A survey of 1,562 real estate investor resumes and job proposals & U.S. Census Bureau data that was conducted by Zippia produced valuable insights on the demographics of real estate investors in the U.S. These insights have been provided in the sections below.

Age

  • The average age of real estate investors is 47.1 years. The age breakdown of professionals within this sector is shown below.

Gender

  • In this sector, there are more male than female investors. This is because 30.3% of the surveyed investors were women while 64.5% were men.

Ethnic Background

  • The most common ethnicity among real estate investors is White - 67.6% followed by Hispanic - 16.3%, Black/African American - 8.3%, Asian - 5.0%, and American Indian & Alaska Native - 0.8%.

Foreign Languages Spoken

Unemployment

  • The unemployment rate of real estate investors has been falling over the last couple of years. This is because the unemployment rate of the profession stood at 6.0% in 2010 and fell to 2.6% in 2018.

LGBTQ Ratio

Income

  • In the real estate sector, male and female investors make an average of $74,000 and $69,318, respectively.

Research Strategy:

After conducting an exhaustive search for information on the demographics of the attendees of real estate investing conferences/summits, we were unable to find publicly available information of the same. We primarily focused our search for this information on statistical resources such as IBIS World and Statista, government sources such as U.S. Census Bureau, news sources such as CNN and Reuters, and press release resources such as PR Newswire and Globenewswire. Even though the requested information was not available publicly, we were able to twist the research metrics to the demographics of real estate investors in the U.S and ended up finding a source that contained insightful information on this group of individuals. Our assumption was that real estate investors make up the majority of the attendees of real estate investing conferences and summits and their demographic information would thus prove useful. We attributed the lack of information in the public domain to the fact that most real estate investing conferences and summits do not publish the demographic information of their attendees publicly.

Real Estate Investing Conferences/Summits - Number and Size

Although the requested information was highly unavailable in the public domain, it was determined that in 2019, the average attendance of conventions and exhibitions in the U.S. was 4,932. A detailed overview of the research findings and research strategy follows below.

Total Number and Average Size of Conferences/Summits

  • Information on the total number and average size of real estate investing conferences/summits in the U.S. was unavailable in the public domain. Similarly, information on the total number and average size of real estate conferences/summits was also publicly unavailable.
  • However, information on the average size of visitors at the largest conventions and exhibitions in the U.S. in 2019 was available. According to this information, the average size of conventions and exhibitions in the U.S. in 2019 was as follows: fewer than 200 - 8%, 200 to 499 - 18%, 500 to 999 - 17%, 1,000 - 2,499 - 18%, 2,500 to 4,999 - 15%, 5,000 to 9,999 - 10%, 10,000 to 24,999 - 10%, and 25,000 and more - 6%.
  • From the above figures, it was determined that the average attendance of conventions and exhibitions in the U.S. was 4,932 in 2019. This figure represents a growth from an average attendance of 4,320 in 2018. Additionally, the above statistics can be used as proxy findings of the average size of real estate investing conferences/summits in the U.S.
  • According to Statista, between 2019 and 2020, 46% of convention and meetings industry professionals from the U.S. expected attendance of their largest events to remain the same, 46% expected attendance to increase, while 8% expected attendance to decrease.
  • In 2016, there were a total of 1.9 million meetings held in the U.S. while in 2017, this figure jumped to 1.8 million annually. On the other hand, 251 million people attended meetings in 2016 while 205 million people attended the meetings in 2017. More recent data and segmentation by sector e.g real estate was not available in the public domain.

Research Strategy:

After conducting an exhaustive search for information on the total number and average size of real estate investing conferences/summits, we determined that this information is unavailable in the public domain. Consequently, we revised the research parameters to the total number and average size of real estate conferences/summits with the hope that insightful information would be found, but we were still unable to find any relevant information in the public domain. We focused our search for this information on statistical resources such as IBIS World and Statista, government sources such as U.S. Census Bureau, news sources such as CNN and Reuters, and press release resources such as PR Newswire and Globenewswire.

We further expanded the research parameters to the total number and average size of conferences/summits in general in the U.S. with the hope that we were going to find some useful data that could be used as proxy findings. Here, we were able to find some insightful information on the average size of attendance and the total number of meetings held annually in the U.S. between 2016 and 2017. We attributed the unavailability of the requested data points to the fact that players in the real estate investing and real estate sector do not publish aggregate reports on the total number and average size of conferences and summits held in the U.S. annually.
