Homeshippers are the best paid workers in the world, according to a new report.
The report from the HR consultancy Mercer finds that the top three earners of homeshippers in the UK earn £11.3m, compared with the £9.5m paid to full-time workers.
The study also found that the number of homeshare homeshare operators has tripled since 2008.
The most recent data for 2016 shows that the UK has nearly 3.2 million homesharing operators.
There are more than 4.5 million people in the industry, with a median age of 28.3 years.
Homeownership is the biggest source of income for the industry.
The average homeowner earns £25,000, while the average investor earns £1.6m.
The UK has the highest number of owners of any country in the OECD.
However, a recent study by the Royal Society of Arts found that UK households with a mortgage paid an average of £1,500 less per month than households with an investment property.
There were 2,878 new home sales in the first half of 2017, up 3 per cent from the same period in 2016.
The figures showed that prices for houses in the capital have risen by 6 per cent compared with 2016.
There is still a lot of growth ahead, with the median house price set to rise by almost 7 per cent over the next 12 months.
It is a very important area for the housing industry.
It provides an important service, but the number and scale of demand for the sector is very important, said Richard Hickey, managing director of Mercer’s UK and Ireland group.
It will be interesting to see how things evolve over the coming year, he said.
He said there is a lot that could be done to drive the supply and demand.
