Using the method that measures regional disparity of economic growth, we calculated the SE, CVs and Theil series of regional real estate investment to analyze the regional disparity of real estate investment. We measured the regional disparity of real estate investment from 1999 to 2012 among China’s economic regions, intra-economic regions and cities in the same province in the context of population aging. We also made empirical analysis on the relationship between real estate investment and GDP using the sample of 231 cities. The result reveals that the absolute difference of real estate investment is increased yearly and the relative difference is gradually reduced. The difference among economic regions or cities in the same province is increasing largely year by year, which is the main component of regional disparity. Due to the different level of regional economic development, the relationship between real estate investment and GDP is varying among cities.
