Explores issues surrounding rental and strata management, with a focus on professionally administered managed housing

UNSW Built Environment short course Housing Mnagaement and Markets explores the rental housing and strata management industry with a focus on professionally administered managed housing. Focus will be on multi-occupied residential buildings run by real estate agents and state governments and not-for-profit community housing providers as considered with an international lens where appropriate.

The Housing Management and Markets course will enable you to gain an understanding of the rental housing and strata management industry. In regards to ‘housing management’ the course will concentrate on ‘managed housing’; that is the ‘professionally administered’ part of the housing market. This will entail a focus on multi-occupied residential buildings (the strata sector), market rental dwellings under professional real estate management, and affordable rental housing run by social landlords (primarily state governments and not-for-profit community housing providers). You will learn about ‘housing management industry’ structure, about rental and strata property law, about the property and tenancy management practice, and about rental property investment practice. You will also become familiar with analytical methods applicable to property investment and market performance.
