As the population ages, more assisted care and retirement communities will be built. This will increase the need for property managers. In addition, as the population grows more people will be living in apartment buildings, condominiums, and housing developments with homeowner associations. To help make these housing areas successful, owners hire real estate and property managers.
Many jobs will be available as property managers move to other occupations or retire. Job opportunities will be excellent for those with experience managing housing for older people and with experience managing health care facilities.
