Is commercial real estate a good career in this economy?
I'm a sophmore in college and am interested in commercial real estate. I do know of people who have been laid off from their jobs in this market, but I still want to do more research. I am intrigued at the thought of buying and selling commercial properties but would it become a downward spiral of a job, especially in this economy? ( I live in Dallas, TX if anyone has any input on the particular real estate situation here that would help)
