The real estate group is part of the Business School and runs the Centre for Real Estate Research (CRER). Members of the group have attracted funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the EU, and a range of commercial and professional sponsors including the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) and the Investment Property Forum (IPF). The group has industry links and publishes for instance the quarterly Aberdeen Housing Market Report.

The members of the real estate group conduct also research and research supervision with members of other groups within and outwith the Business School, for instance on the performance of investment funds and aspects of capital investments of universities (with members of the finance group of the Business School) and on GP business and location choices (with members of the health economics group of the Medical School).
