Real Capital Analytics Deepens its Commitment to Australia; Launches Enhanced Localised Product and Opens Office

Real Capital Analytics / April 20th, 2021

  • The most comprehensive set of commercial real estate intelligence available in Australia on a single, integrated, user-friendly platform
  • Local support by experienced team in the newly opened Sydney office
  • Dedicated research and analytics with an exclusive focus on the Australian commercial real estate market

Sydney, Australia, 21 April 2021 – Real Capital Analytics (RCA), the leading global provider of capital markets data for commercial real estate, today launched an expanded product for Australia that offers the most comprehensive set of commercial real estate intelligence available on a single, integrated, user-friendly platform.

Facilitated in part by an exclusive arrangement with CoreLogic, RCA has dramatically lowered its threshold to $1 million (previously $6 million) for transactions, added construction projects from Cordell, and additional property details throughout the country, increasing the amount of available domestic data ninefold. Along with tracking commercial property transactions, a key component of RCA’s data is its Investor Universe, which includes detailed profiles on each player and provides visibility into the linkage of the true buyers and sellers.

The enhanced data allows users to gain insights into previously unquantified trends in Australia, providing a more complete picture of investments across the various real estate sectors. In a recent study, RCA was able to identify a 75% surge in transaction volume for medical offices and centres based on the depth and granularity of available data, which provides valuable intelligence for investors looking to gain exposure to the ever-growing healthcare sector.

Robert M. White, Jr., President and Founder of Real Capital Analytics commented: “For the 15 years that we’ve offered data in Australia, RCA has become the go-to source for global investors.  The vastly expanded coverage that we now offer provides critical intelligence for all Australian players, big and small, domestic and foreign.  We look forward to deepening our relationships in Australia and delivering on our longstanding reputation of having the most timely and reliable transaction data globally, and now locally.”

Along with the enhanced product and a local presence, RCA will be adding a quarterly Australia Capital Trends report to its stable of global publications. Compiled by local industry experts, the report is  dedicated exclusively to analysing and interpreting trends in the Australian commercial real estate market. The next issue will publish end-April.

I am so honored and excited to be a part of this significant milestone in RCA’s 20-year history by spearheading the first location outside of the USA that exists to serve a single domestic focused market,” said  David Metcalfe, Regional Director for Australia. “This represents RCA coming full circle to offer the best solutions we can to our clients for global and local data. Moreover, it is my hope that the local expertise and support offered by our team of analysts, researchers, and client relationship managers will prove an invaluable resource to our clients in Australia, both veteran and new.”

Alongside a dedicated team of local researchers, Ado van Rensburg has joined as Sales Director, and Ben Martin-Henry will head up Analytics.
