Dr Michael James Rehm

PhD, MSLD, BArch


Dr Michael Rehm is a Senior Lecturer in Property at the University of Auckland Business School.  His research focus has been on the development of hedonic pricing models used to isolate and better understand specific behaviour of market participants within housing and office markets. His research incorporates geographic information systems (GIS) to model and explore the often underappreciated spatial relationships prevalent in property markets including work on school zoning, proximity to cell phone towers and leaky building stigma. His latest research is on housing affordability and the impacts of inclusionary zoning on residential land development.
