The CREM - Center for Real Estate Management's third annual Real Estate Research seminar


The seminar, organized at Université Paris-Dauphine, demonstrates just how dynamic and multi-disciplinary real estate research has become.

A wide variety of participants and topics

The seminar brought together a broad range of participants including academics ( Montpellier, Rouen, Lyon, Dauphine and UQAM, Canada), government institutions (Banque de France, CEHD), and businesses (BNP Paribas Real Estate, MeilleursAgents, RQR) with a wide variety of perspectives (economic, managerial, geographic, legal, and urban-planning) that mirrored just how complex and multi-disciplinary real estate research has become.

The seminar covered issued such as how to estimate the value of the housing stock, how to measure occupant quality perception for office buildings, the key issues involved in corporate location decisions and their impact on business growth and employment, the effects of aging on real estate prices, and the proliferation of office buildings in urban areas. Two presentations addressed the quality of the housing stock, one dealing with the fight against unsanitary housing and the other on the economic factors behind the choice of heating systems.

An international approach

The seminar took a resolutely international approach to issues: analyzing the evolution of Tokyo's office stock, the impact of demographics on housing in Belgium, and an overview of 20 years of real estate research at UQAM, the Université du Québec à Montréal.

Following on the seminar, the Center for Real Estate Management and the Smart Cities Group, are co-organizing a seminar on "Smart Cities and Real Estate Data", at Université Paris-Dauphine June 7th 2017 from 2:30 PM to 5:30 PM.
