The Real Estate Initiative at Florida Atlantic University


SPONSORED BY FAU EXECUTIVE EDUCATION   Learn More


Real estate is intertwined culturally and economically with our daily lives. It impacts consumers across a range of issues, including buy versus rent, understanding housing cycles and broker incentives, and even determining the shape and size of our cities. Florida’s economy is particularly real estate dependent. We are constantly evaluating our affordable housing stock, commercial development, Everglades infringement, population growth, sea level rise, and international investment in properties, among other concerns. These continuously shifting dynamics point to the need for a central producer and distributor of critical and practical real estate knowledge and current information to enhance future real estate decision making.  The purpose of the FAU Real Estate Initiative is to serve as an open-source provider of this knowledge and information.

Our scholars and contributors are:

Market knowledge and information will generally be produced through the collective research efforts of our contributors. The dissemination of this knowledge and information can be found in academic research outlets, on this website, and in local and national media forums.

Real estate is and will continue to be the cornerstone for the development of Florida and the nation. We look forward to being a recognized source of real estate expertise.
