The Society of Property Researchers (SPR) is a professional association for practising property researchers.  It has a membership of over 500 individuals working in a variety of organisations; from surveying firms to independent research companies, from academics to institutions. The majority are based in the UK, but a growing number are working overseas. SPR offers its members the opportunity to network, keep abreast of current trends and update skills and provides many opportunities for interaction with people engaged not only in property research, but across the entire property industry.
