The housing industry creates 1.4 million jobs and generates billions of dollars in tax revenue to the state and federal governments.

There is a growing demand for real estate professionals to be equipped with contemporary tools and analytical frameworks to enable turning data to actionable insights, amid property data is becoming increasingly available to the public.

The Housing Market Modelling Program of HousingMarketAustralia.com is proud to offer the first data analytics and modelling course dedicated to analysing the Australian housing market: Housing Market Analytics: Turning Data to Insights.

You’ll explore the theory and the analytical frameworks to gain in-depth knowledge about the dynamics of the Australian housing market, learn how to use data and modelling techniques to value property, use data analytics to forecast the future trends of the key market indicators, and carry out rigorous due diligence for any property or a sub-market.

This course is designed by a team of industry and academic experts led by Dr. Kevin Hoang, who has earned a PhD in economics from the University of New South Wales (UNSW) and has possessed years of experience in the domain of the Australian housing market analytics.

No prior coding skill is required to enroll in this course. The demonstration of analytical approaches will be carried out by Excel and other specialized software.
