CRE Investment Market Research

With an average of more than 20 years’ experience of working in European, Asian and US real estate investment markets the Didobi team is able to offer our clients a comprehensive and genuinely independent property market research and analysis service.

Core capabilities:

  • Macro-economic analysis
  • Portfolio investment strategies
  • Market and sector reporting
  • Market and sector level forecasting
  • Asset due diligence
  • Bespoke research projects
  • In-house research support

These services are also available as part of our Flexible In-House Research Resource service. We work with your company on an in-house basis to provide a research function without all the associated costs of recruiting and managing a full time research team. We are often called in when the in-house researchers need to do a “deep dive” into an unfamiliar topic and could use some additional expertise.  Smaller clients do not have in-house researchers, but they do need research done, sporadically or on an ongoing basis.

We provide your business with access to a group of highly skilled and experienced researchers. Our solution is a completely flexible service tailored to your individual needs. Projects and costs are agreed in advance to avoid budget uncertainty and we are happy to work in the client’s office or remotely, as required.

Some clients have rich data sources to hand but are not exploiting them efficiently. Our expertise in data management resolves this. If that data is unstructured (such as data in text files, websites or emails) we use natural language processing to help us extract the value in the data. If the client’s data is stored in vast or scattered spreadsheets, we use our programming skills to optimise the value of that data.

Case Study

The brief
In April 2019 the Investment Property Forum (“IPF”) sent out an invitation for parties to tender for a short research project and paper entitled “Global Capital Flows in a World of increasing Nationalism & Protectionism”.

Thesis – In a world of increasing political and trade tensions the prevailing economic orthodoxy of expanding international free trade and the increasingly free movement of goods, services and labour around the globe has come under pressure from protectionist forces and rising nationalism at the ballot box in Europe, Asia and North America.

Our input
Didobi were asked to consider what the impact an interruption or even a reversal in this trend towards globalisation and greater cross border economic integration might be for the international real estate investment industry. Would it simply mean a return to “the old days” of localised real estate markets or will it set in motion a whole new chain of events and structural changes?

Didobi was awarded the tender and prepared a report for publication.

Current status
Delivered on time and on budget, the report was published in December 2019 following a presentation of the findings.
