This is true. The young, single women often time can't make the financial aspect work though because they don't have the money to pay bills until their commission checks start arriving. That discourages a lot of attractive, 20 something women from doing residential real estate sales. A lot of those women in sales roles can get other sales jobs that pay a base salary + commission. Many companies want to hire attractive young, childless women as sales reps. This sales in pharmaceutical sales, medical device sales, or beer brand/liquor brand sales reps.
Young, single, childless women also would prefer not to work weekends. There are many other Mon-Fri sales jobs that don't require weekends.
Residential real estate sales tends to attract married moms and divorced moms with good divorce settlements.
The schedule in residential real estate sales on weekdays allows moms to parent more easily. On weekends, when a married or divorced mom is working open houses and settling purchase contracts, the kids are with their dad in either case.
There are plenty of attractive, 30+ year old MILF types in residential real estate sales. It's a better fit for them than the childless women.
At $7.25-$10 per hour, you're either living with your parents or living with several others on your own while collecting welfare.
$20 per hour with a 40 hour work week is $41,600/year.
$40,000-$45,000 a year in my city will enable a person to get a 2 bedroom apartment with a roommate in a 35+ year old complex. That person can likely afford having a vehicle. It's not going to be great. This lifestyle is easier to pull off for younger women than younger men in my city because men's SMV is judged on income/employment.
