    Purpose The purpose of this study is to see how a more developed discipline – corporate real estate management (CREM) – can add value to a less developed discipline – municipal real estate management (MREM) – to contribute to their professionalisation. Design/methodology/approach Every year since 2008 (except for 2013), municipalities have been asked to complete a questionnaire on how they manage their real estate.

Municipalities make strategic and organisational changes that aim to improve both th...
