Why study real estate?
The world of real estate is exciting, fast-paced and rewarding.
There will always be a market for property, so a role in the development, valuation or management of the built environment entails job security as well as earning potential. Most large organisations today have property management teams, while residential properties have increasingly diverse managerial arrangements.
If the idea of a traditional desk-based job doesn’t appeal, a career in real estate could offer you the variety and independence you’re looking for.
