RCA’s Construction Starts Data

Insight Into Commercial Real Estate Development & Capital Flows

RCA has collected and enriched comprehensive development data to provide access to the latest and most reliable Construction Starts data across the U.S., Europe and Australia. We track when land is acquired and financing is secured before a project breaks ground or starts, through to the subsequent refinance or sale of the completed property.

When possible, RCA links the individual records to the prior land sale and true property owners, making it easy to analyze these markets at an aggregate level, tracking the development pipeline and the delivery of new stock to identify new business opportunities.

Extensive Research and Verification

Each construction record obtained has been researched, enriched with additional data, meticulously organized, reviewed, verified and standardized by our own in-house team of researchers to ensure data quality, consistency and completeness, while adhering to a strict defined transparent methodology.

Each construction record has been completely integrated into RCA’s existing database to enhance our property detail records, investor profiles, and property transaction histories.
