Real Estate Research Institute
The Real Estate Research Institute (RERI) studies trends in the Louisiana real estate market for the benefit of growth and development throughout the state. Established in part with funds from the Louisiana Real Estate Commission in 1985, various private sources and grants have provided continued funding for the institute.
RERI is often recognized for publications in U.S. real estate journals, and continues to secure grants for the purpose of supporting doctoral students.
Through RERI, students in real estate-focused courses have access to ARGUS software, allowing them the opportunity to become certified on this vital real estate standard to gain valuable skills and credibility in the industry before graduation.
RERI focuses on real estate-based research and does not offer academic programs. The Commercial Real Estate Career Track within the BS Finance Program is an excellent option for students interested in studying real estate.
