2021 National Conference

The AREUEA National Conference invites paper submissions on all facets of real estate related research including housing, urban economics, commercial real estate investment, finance, and the securitization of real estate assets and liabilities, and more. The goal of the meeting is to provide participation opportunities to a broad range of affiliated disciplines where AREUEA members can present their research in a rigorous and engaging scholarly environment.

The conference is held in Washington DC over a two day period typically at the end of the Memorial Day week. The sessions are informative and ample time is provided to allow for discussion among the presenters and session participants. Policy makers, academics, and real estate practitioners have all come to rely on the leading research and vigorous discussions that are a tradition of this conference.
