The American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association (AREUEA) was originated at the 1964 meeting of the Allied Social Science Association in Chicago. AREUEA grew from discussions of individuals that recognized a need for more information and analysis in the fields of real estate development, planning and economics.

The continuing efforts of this non-profit association has advanced the scope of knowledge in these disciplines and has facilitated the exchange of information and opinions among academic, professional and governmental people who are concerned with urban economics and real estate issues.


AREUEA's journal, Real Estate Economics is published quarterly and is distributed on a calendar year subscription basis. The journal contains research and scholarly studies of current and emerging real estate issues. Special issues are occasionally published to focus on a particular topic of current interest.

The Association holds three conferences each year. The conferences are an excellent opportunity for members and non-members to catch up on the most up-to-date research available in the fields of real estate and urban economics.

Members receive many other benefits, including access to the membership directory, job postings, and more. Membership is open to any interested party.
