    Hi all,

    I am hoping the wise people of PC can give me some ideas on a current dilemma I have. I was wondering what analytical roles are out there that are related to property/investing in general. I am currently working as a Data Analyst and I love numbers but I feel like I would get more enjoyment out of my job if the numbers I was looking at were related to a topic i had a greater interest in.

    If anyone could give me some ideas around what kind of roles are out there or where the best place to look is I would be very appreciative.

    Thanks,
    Niche

    Have a look at the commercial property owners, there's plenty of analytical roles for bods capable of driving Cougar etc or other feasibility software, determination of IRR & NPVs for valuations and purchase.

    There are plenty of real estate focussed firms playing with big data atm.
    - Corelogic
    - REA Group (realestate.com.au)
    - SQM Research etc.
    - Even Empower Wealth has a couple of big data irons in the fire (e.g. LocationScore & SuburbGrowth), but they seem fairly rudimentary still (could be a good thing if they take off - they'll need people)

    Finance Companies, Fund Managers, Private Equity etc.

    Lots of organizations have dealings in property as part of their transactions or asset books. You could have a look through the ASX200 to get a view on some suitable organisations :)
