As part of its 2011 Member Profile, NAR looked at the number of transaction sides members had in 2010. (A “side” meaning representing a seller or a buyer; acting as a disclosed dual agent would mean having two sides.)

Here are a few of the things it found:

The typical NAR member had 8 transaction sides in 2010—this is up from 7 sides in 2009.

51 percent of members had transaction involving a property in foreclosure.

44 percent of members had a transaction involving a short sale.
