The Australian Property Research Education Fund (APREF) was established by the API in 2018 to support the Australian Property Industry by facilitating both scientific research, education, training and development – specifically in the fields of valuation and land economy.

  • Housing market resilience
  • Towards more inclusive equality and diversity for the Australian valuation industry
  • Towards understanding the dynamics of the regional property markets of Australia
  • Black Swan Events, Quantitative Easing and the Australian Residential Property Market
  • Big Visual Data Analysis using Artificial Intelligence for Mass Valuation of Residential Properties in Australia
  • Urban densification through private land assembling in inner and middle suburbs for decentralised mixed/single-use build to rent development
