by AB31 May 2013

Bendigo and Adelaide bank have committed to on-going sponsorship of the Real Estate Institute of Australia’s (REIA) two flagship market data and analysis publications, Real Estate Market Facts and Housing Affordability Report.

REIA president, Peter Bushby, says he’s ‘thrilled’ with the agreement.

“REIA has published property market data and analysis for several decades. It has an excellent reputation as a highly credible source of information and considered opinion on the residential and commercial property markets in Australia.”

“This vital data and analysis are eagerly anticipated by our members, the government, opposition, the media and the public. We’re very excited to have such a respected partner on board to ensure the continuation of these important publications,” says Bushby.

“Our first year in partnership was highly successful. Bendigo and Adelaide Bank has locked in a solid partnership to the real estate profession and consumers.”

Bendigo Wealth executive, John Billington, is equally enthusiastic about the relationship and says involvement in the production of ‘Australia’s most authoritative’ sources of real estate analysis will also result in tangible benefits for banking customers and the bank’s business partners, such as mortgage brokers and independent financial planners.

“Nobody understands the real estate industry like the institute and its members and this partnership gives us additional insights that we can use for the benefit of customers,” says Billington.
