Like the title says, I'm trying to figure out the worst first job you can have in commercial real estate. That way users can know to avoid it and aim for something equally easy to get but less hindering to your career.
Based off what I've read here, appraisal and DUS lending seem to be the worst. In appraisal you're not truly thinking about value. It's more just a required document lenders need.
In DUS lending, you're just underwriting to the guidelines fannie and Freddie force you to. And sucking on their teet to close deals. Plus it's multifamily only.
Anyone else? What's a job real estate folks should avoid if they want to make it to the big leagues (REIT head of acquisitions, MD at repe fund etc)
