We conduct a fact finding data analytics process that uncovers how people are engaging, transacting, and behaving with property, place, and price, at a local level.

Urban Statistic looks at many factors over a time horizon that go beyond sales price metrics including: supply, demand, business use, migration patterns, business diversification, people & business movement, traffic congestion, and the economic health of an area.

The collated and analysed data can also be compared with other locations to address the pitfalls and advantages. Conclusions drawn from the information answers many questions about the state of property in Australia, and it’s all based on human behaviour.

The findings are presented using interactive dashboard’s that bring data to life and tells a story that’s visually compelling and stimulating. 

Our property sales data on the Australian housing market is used by real estate agents, property professionals, and financial institutions. These professionals are after an interactive experience that goes beyond property prices and provides real data that helps them forecast for future growth.




The work we do is customised.  Therefore, conclusions are solely objective and specific.

Whether it’s validation for a project, or knowledge for business direction, our client strategy is to reduce cost and/or increase revenue through our findings.
