Property Data was established by Mark Pickering in 1991. The company initially published directories on commercial property investors, developers and housebuilders. In 1999 an online commercial investment transactions database was launched.
In 2000 the company created a league table recording the total value of investment deals carried out by the leading surveying firms. To ensure their position was correctly reflected in the table, agents began to submit their deals, importantly this included many that had not previously appeared in the public domain. During the last nighteen years Property Data's investment service has become the acknowledged market leader in UK commercial investment transaction capture. This transaction data has been uniquely coded allowing a completely new analysis of the UK investment market.
Since 2000 Property Data have recorded 43,500 UK investment transactions with a total value of £840 billion. (31/12/18)
Property Data's research on transaction volumes and capital flows is now relied upon by all sections of the commercial property investment industry and regularly appears in the Estates Gazette and Property Week, and on Bloomberg and Reuters.
Property Data has an exclusive data partnership agreement with Real Capital Analytics Inc., the leading global real estate transaction research firm.
