Welcome to the American Real Estate and Urban Economics Association's (AREUEA) online information resource.

AREUEA was originated at the 1964 meeting of the Allied Social Science Association in Chicago. AREUEA grew from discussions of individuals that recognized a need for more information and analysis in the fields of real estate development, planning and economics.

Over more than 45 years AREUEA has grown to be the leader in supporting and promoting real estate & urban economics research of the utmost quality.

The vibrancy of AREUEA has been and will continue to be based on individuals who support and believe in the mission of the organization.

New Mentorship Program. AREUEA invites submissions for a new mentorship program centered around one or two dedicated sessions on the morning of Wednesday June 2, ahead of the 2021 AREUEA National meeting. In each session, three to four junior scholars will present an early-stage research project or paper, each of which will be discussed by a senior scholar. The mentor-mentee pairings will continue to meet at least three times over the 2021-2022 academic year to discuss developments in the focal paper, as well as other questions the mentee may have regarding professional development. The focus of this year’s program will be on real estate finance.
