City Shapers Podcast: Episode Four — Nerida Conisbee, Chief Economist of REA Group


In this episode, founder and publisher of The Urban Developer Adam Di Marco speaks with Nerida Conisbee, chief economist of REA Group.

After a career leading the research departments of some of Australia’s major real estate houses, Nerida joined REA Group — the parent company is listing website — as chief economist.

With over 5 million Australians using the website every month (that’s one in four of us) Nerida has a pretty good sense of what’s happening in our markets.

With a wealth of data at her fingertips, Nerida marries the fundamental market drivers of a real estate market with the way we behave online to extract unparalleled insight.

In this episode, we explore:

  • What exactly is a property market and what are its key drivers;

  • We dive a little deeper to understand how macro-economic factors combine with local factors to drive property values;

  • We explore the unique data that REA Group uses to identify "canaries in the mine";

  • And finally, we ask Nerida where markets are going now and into the future.
