The National Property Research Co.

The National Property Research Company was founded in 1999 by the Managing Director, Matthew Gross. It was initially established as the sole research division for Herron Todd White in Brisbane with the company consulting directly to Kerry Herron on a monthly basis. In late 2001 The National Property Research Company expanded outside of Herron Todd White to grow into one of South East Queensland’s most respected property research firms.

The NPR Co. is a Brisbane based company that undertakes work all across Australia, with a particular expertise in the Queensland property market. The firm provides property market insights that are based on independent research and local market knowledge established through a wide network of property market contacts. As a result, clients receive the most up to date bespoke information and advice to ensure they make the most informed business decisions.

The National Property Research Company is a business based on wearing out boot leather, car tyres and plane seats. We believe that in order to really know what is happening in the property market you have to get out there and see what is actually happening. The best research is that which is conducted at the frontline. This is our specialty and we pride ourselves on it.

Since 1999, The National Property Research Company has found that statistics and data can, and often do lag behind what is actually happening on the ground. Through the firm’s extensive network of industry leaders, the highly qualified staff have developed an expertise at cutting through to the real issues. This has seen The National Property Research Company involved with over 24 UDIA award winning projects since 2004. A record we are intensely proud of.

As a highly independent research business, The National Property Research Company does not sell or market property. Our advice is relied upon by most of the ASX listed property firms, The State Government, Local Governments, the courts, large private firms and high net worth individuals.

As the media grabs hold of any article that looks like showing a property bubble, the reality is that bubbles come in all shapes and sizes.  Some will pop in the most spectacular ways whilst others will drift away causing very little disturbance.  In some markets, it is actually possible to have a property bubble seeing only incremental growth in prices.  Some may argue that many of our capital cities are in this type of bubble right now. The kind of bubble where volumes of apartment sales are being driven by both interstate and international buyers to such an extent that the oversupply of product has meant that prices have largely gone sideways...

Three Days of Market Insights

Having just completed an intense three days whereby I delivered four presentations on various markets around South East Queensland, I thought I would share with you some of the more interesting insights regarding the Gold Coast Apartment Market, Migration, Small Businesses and Interest Rates. 

However, before I do, it would be remiss of me not to thank the four parties that had me along to talk, Queensland Department of State Development, Villaworld Ltd, QM Properties and Lotte Engineering and Construction – a top 10 business group in Asia. We are very proud of the quality of our clients and enjoy being part of and contributing to, their many successes.
