The Fitzgerald Institute for Real Estate engages in world-class research in order to advance our mission of creating places of lasting value. Our research is rigorous, data-driven, and interdisciplinary, and it seeks to inform important debates within the academy, public policy, and industry. The Institute's most critical research areas include:
Investment & Markets
Investing in real estate, from publicly-traded real estate investment trusts to private equity, is critical for the success of capital markets, development projects, and the global economy.
Housing & Communities
Creating housing that is affordable, dignified, and safe, in both the United States and worldwide, enables individuals, families, and communities to grow and prosper.
Technology & Construction
Advances in technology are revolutionizing long-term trends in the real estate industry and will have a major impact on our future.
Properties owned by the Catholic Church— churches, hospitals, and schools— and other religious and non-profit organizations play a vital role in advancing the common good.
The many uses of real estate, including commercial, educational, and healthcare, contribute to the long-term flourishing of society.
The Institute seeks to foster an intellectual community of scholars who seek to analyze important real estate issues.
