New residential Real Estate
The most common real estate market metrics in residential real estate include days on market, months in inventory, and median sales price. While these metrics tell much of the story about the state of real estate markets, they are absolute values, and as such make it difficult to compare one time/price/area segments with another.

Detailed information on our graduate and undergraduate programs
Florida International University offers both undergraduate and graduate programs in real estate education. FIU is one of fewer than seventy-five universities in the United States that offers an undergraduate major in real estate. This is an excellent foundation for students looking to a future in real estate.
The Real Estate Student Association at Florida International University links students with the real estate community.
RESA is open to undergraduate and graduate students with a broad interest in real estate as it impacts society and as a career choice. A main goal of the organization is to provide networking opportunities with local real estate professionals in the various specialties that make up the real estate industry.
Faculty specializing in real estate and finance
Real estate courses are taught by nationally and internationally recognized FIU faculty specializing in real estate and finance. Faculty members are highly published in the top journals in the field, work with industry leaders, and present cutting edge research throughout the world. In addition, the teaching mission is also enhanced by senior real estate professionals.
Real Estate at Florida International University
Dr. William Hardin, Director, Hollo School of Real Estate
Welcome to Real Estate at Florida International University (FIU). The unique global real estate profile of Miami and South Florida sets the stage for debate and dialogue on the place of real estate within society. Florida International University’s College of Business Administration and its faculty are recognized internationally as leaders in the production and dissemination of real estate knowledge and are shaping this debate. In fact, the group of FIU faculty members associated with the Jerome Bain Real Estate Institute has been recognized as being in the "Top 20" in Real Estate Research. In a forthcoming article by Jin and Yu in Journal of Real Estate Finance and Economics, FIU is ranked 18th in real estate research for the ten year period ending in 2008. In addition, Dr. Hardin is listed as a member of the real estate research "Hall of Fame" with a ranking of 25th in research over the last thirty-five years.
Real estate education is central to South Florida and Florida International University (FIU). The Real Estate at Florida International University web site facilitates real estate knowledge dissemination and education and is a central platform from which you can easily link to other real estate activities at FIU, the region and the world. Whether you are interested in the award winning research of our faculty, the pursuit of an undergraduate or graduate degree in real estate, unbiased real estate reporting and commentary, measures of market performance, dedicated centers, scholarships, faculty experts, current real estate news, current students or alumni, or supporting our program(s), you are at the hub of these activities.
These are interesting times. The world is moving forward from a nearly unparalleled economic crisis. The level of uncertainty in financial assets including stocks, bond, derivatives, and real estate is making it difficult to establish values and for markets to function efficiently. While this causes some short-term market dislocation, the present financial market conditions highlight the need for understanding what really drives asset values. Because real estate is the largest asset class for investment, it is essential that all market and policy makers and anyone in business understand how real estate markets work and how they are integrated with our overall economy. Real estate is an essential part of our economic and social systems. Hence, we are required to understand its place and discern fact from fiction.
