Property Market Dynamics
APDI Program Unit – Property Market Dynamics
Property Market Dynamics focuses on the analysis of the property market including the nature, structure and forces at play within the market. Students will develop an understanding of how market dynamics interact to determine value and the effects of market structure and government intervention on the health of the property market as a whole.
Property Market Dynamics examines both Australian and international market trends and uses this to develop insights into the future of the property market. Students will be able to identify the drivers of market demand and define the market driven attributes required for new product.
Students are also exposed to regression, hypothesis testing and spatial mapping techniques in order to collect, analyse and present market data. This subject provides a foundation for students to grasp moderately advanced economic and analytical concepts and to operate as successful property developers within a complex and dynamic market.
