Bonus drop for real estate agents

Average monthly bonus payments for real estate agents amounted to NOK 7 000 in 2009; NOK 1 600 less than in 2008. The bonuses comprise a significant part of wages for this occupational group.

Average monthly earnings for real estate agents, excluding overtime, were at NOK 41 500 as per 1 September 2009; an increase of NOK 200, equivalent to 0.5 per cent. This relatively low increase in wages is mainly due to a decline in average monthly bonus payments. In comparison, average basic salary increased by NOK 1 200, which is 3.7 per cent higher than the year before.

Publications of wage statistics in 2009 apply a new standard industrial classification (SIC2007). Wage statistics 2008/2009 presented here are thus according to the new standard.
