ACRE Research

The Research Division of the Alabama Center for Real Estate is a resource for industry stakeholders in both residential and commercial real estate. 

Please contact Stuart Norton if we can be of service with your real estate research needs.


Welcome to the Alabama Residential Real Estate Index™ (AL RREI) and the Commercial Real Estate Index™ (AL CREI). The indexes measure economic expectations for the upcoming quarter gathered from a broad group of business executives across the state. With six key indicators and a composite index, panelists can take the pulse of the state’s residential and commercial industries as well as compare their own forecasts to those of their peers.

Take the 3rd Quarter 2024 Survey, open June 1.
