The Difference is Independent Research

Director: Dr. Kevin Hoang, PhD in Economics and Econometrics, UNSW


To develop cutting-edge analytical models to enhance evidence-based decision making for home buyers, investors, developers, property service providers and policy makers.


  • To develop cutting-edge analytical models to enhance evidence-based decisioning
  • To develop proprietary analytics solutions to rank 15,000 suburbs across Australia: identifying top 5% suburbs to live and invest based on data and market insights
  • To provide expert advisory service in the domain of the Australian housing market to institutional investors, councils, governments and corporate clients
  • To develop research capabilities to tackle the emerging challenges in the Australian housing market


Housing market analytics and modelling:

  • Location ratings: develop a cutting-edge algorithm to rate suburbs, LGAs and cities according to the specific neighbourhood level data.
  • Market cycle analytics: taking into account a property market’s specific characteristics such as volatility, long and short memory growth rates, we develop a proprietary algorithm to detect the current market phase (Hot, Cold or Balanced) to enable sophisticated investors and home buyers to enter or exit the market strategically.
  • Housing market monitoring system: track the trends of key fundamentals that drive housing supply and demand; build analytical models to forecast the future trends.
  • Building a microsimulation model for policy analysis: this modelling approach will take into account the heterogeneity of market players’ behaviours (i.e. buyers, sellers, banks, governments) and their interactions with properties over their lifetime. The model can be used to assess the impact of policy scenarios or macroeconomic changes on the market outcomes.
  • Housing affordability: sustained growth in housing prices has worsen housing affordability for first home buyers, what policies at local and national levels can be deployed to improve home ownership?
  • The long term housing price trends of capital city markets in Australia: an empirical analysis.

Demographics research: How the underlying demographics changes will shape the housing demand in the future?

  • Population and demographics changes: research into the effect of population and demographics changes such as ageing population and immigration on the demand for housing.
  • Household count and size: how the building industry will plan for the projected housing demand, taking into account the demographics changes including ageing population and increasing marriage age?
  • Inter-state and inter-region migration: identify the patterns and dynamics of population mobility to assess the total housing demand.


We are at the forefront of housing market analytics, having successfully delivered high-impact analytics solutions to leading property companies in Asia and Australia
