Both individual awards, team honors, and awards for best publications have included coverage spanning topics from affordable housing, real estate lending or finance, and the business of real estate, to news and trend analysis on government housing policy, the environment, urban growth, land use investments, construction, architecture and design.

The NAREE competition offers a total of $6,500 in cash awards including:
