Some key talking points

The Australian Property Institute represents almost 8000 property professionals, including property valuers, developers, asset managers and other property professionals


Property professionals underpin the largest industry sector in Australia, employing more than 1.4 million Australians and contributing more than $200 billion to the national economy.

Valuations support the regulated financial services industry by managing credit risk and underline the many assets held by real estate investment trusts and superannuation funds, as well as financial transactions and investments across the board.

Valuations are used as a cornerstone balance sheet measure, not only in the assessment of personal wealth, but backing the successful issuance of residential mortgage backed securities for all major and secondary Australian financial institutions.
