CRE investment analysis is becoming increasingly data driven. When researching on an individual property, analysts will usually collect sales comps, lease comps and cap rates for assumption inputs. When analyzing a market, analyst will often gather pricing trends, fundamentals, and competitive intelligence.

Yiqun Wang, senior manager at Real Capital Analytics (RCA), hosted an event on big data in commercial real estate world. He covered what information is available (RCA and outside of RCA) and various ways to put information into analyses.

The meeting was also broadcasted through GoToMeeting.
