Advocacy & Research

Research Foundation

Our mission is to advocate for the creation of better communities. In 2014, the UDIA Queensland established a Research Foundation to uncover consumer attitudes towards housing in Queensland.

Since then the research compiled has filled a critical gap in industry knowledge for our members. The knowledge we gather enables our members to continue to deliver affordable, sustainable, and desirable housing that Queenslanders want to live in.

The benefit of our research is threefold. We not only share finding with our members, but we also weave the evidence into our advocacy work, and create events that deliver timely market insights.

Our findings are collated into four reports that are distributed exclusively to members throughout the year, including:

On the Radar - Our research radar is always on, monitoring and analysing hot industry topics and using primary data to break down what they mean for our members. This research is courtesy of our partners at Urbis.

Regional Radar – Regular region-specific data powered by CoreLogic. This data equips members with knowledge of the best performing suburbs, latest sales and rent figures, as well as affordability indexing, all with the click of a button.

Planning Pulse - Statewide facts and performance across 15 Local Government Areas in Queensland related to Development Application fees and Infrastructure Charges. 

The Research Foundation is proudly presented by Construction Skills Queensland. 


Industry Leaders Research Group 

The Industry Leaders Research Group (ILRG) is the peak group guiding the work of the Research Foundation. They act as our ‘brains trust’ ensuring we deliver research that reflects the business needs of our members.
