If you’re researching property, there’s more information available than we can handle. How do we make sense of it all?
We tackle this challenge with Nerida Conisbee, Chief Economist with the REA Group who is changing the way the world views property — REA is the parent company of realestate.com.au, realcommercial.com.au and a host of other digital property businesses globally.
Nerida is recognised as one of Australia’s leading property experts. She provides regular market commentary to a wide range of Australian media outlets across digital, print, television and radio.
She has more than 20 years of property research experience throughout Asia Pacific and has held senior positions within commercial agencies and major consulting firms over this time.
Her expertise covers residential and commercial property from both an investor and occupier’s perspective.
Nerida also holds a Bachelor of Commerce with Honours and a Masters of Commerce, majoring in Econometrics.
With nearly seven million searches a day and over five million Australians using the realestate.com.au website every month (that’s one in four of us), Nerida has a very fine tuned sense of what’s happening in property nationally.
With a wealth of data at her fingertips, Nerida marries the fundamental market drivers of real estate with the way we behave online to extract unparalleled insights.
Now you’ve probably all heard the old joke about Why astrology was invented? So economics would seem like an accurate science!
For me the quality of economic projections has been about the quality of the data, the quality of the modelling and most importantly the quality of the person interpreting the data – in this regard Nerida has no equal. Nerida doesn’t have a magic crystal ball but she has the next best thing – current buyer and seller behaviour patterns that bridges the gulf between logical and emotional driven decision-making around property.
In today’s very interesting discussion, Nerida shares her insights on where property is heading around the country and which locations show good long term growth potential … so listen closely!
Nerida's book recommendation:
