During 2018 the WA economy has remained fairly flat, although, in the second half we have seen a resurgence in the resource sector with expansion in iron ore production and development and the emergence of lithium mining projects. The property industry, in general has remained stagnant, however, new investments in the commercial, hotel and retail sectors are underway.
21 Aug 2018 Media Release – The Property Education Foundation joins UDIA(WA) and Property Council (WA)
I am very happy to announce that the Property Education Foundation is now the official Education Partner of the UDIA (WA) and the Property Council (WA). These partnerships will further enhance the influence of the Foundation in its quest to promote and support property education and training of property students.

We thank Landcorp, Landgate, Savills, Primewest, Perron Group, Mark Hay Realty and Realmark Commercial and all their staff who provided the interns with valuable practical training.
Property industry leaders were at Curtin University participating in a Property Education Foundation speed advice session that attracted 60 students including 3 from University of WA.
