Property and real estate markets are directly affected by supply and demand factors which form the foundation for this unit.  Attention is placed on factors that influence supply and demand of all types of property including demography, property cycles, economic factors and government decisions.  This unit is closely linked to current day-to-day events and is very relevant to the ‘real world’.  It builds upon basic economic  theory and focuses specifically on the property fundamentals including housing affordability, the rent vs. buy decision and broader urban geography concepts which affect different sectors in the property industry e.g. retail, office and residential.
