About Research


CBRE Research is an integrated community of preeminent researchers who provide real estate market research, econometric forecasting and corporate- and public-sector strategies to investors and occupiers around the globe.

CBRE Research is run locally, organized regionally and coordinated globally. Real estate is inherently a local business, and we fully recognize that detailed local market knowledge—and an understanding of the differences between individual markets—is critical in supporting our clients. With more than 500 professionals in over 40 countries, CBRE Research integrates macro analytics with local intelligence and has a proven track record with transparent methodology and sophisticated quantitative analytics.


ERIX is CBRE Research’s proprietary global application that records aggregated comparable property market data for over 200 global cities, updated on a quarterly basis. The system provides individual city and cross market reporting. This system allows local data from multiple markets to be assembled into a single global database quickly and efficiently. Local currency and floor space measurements from around the world are systematically converted into globally standardized metrics to allow for international comparison and analysis, while local knowledge, expertise and data are synthesized into a consistent, accessible set of relevant real estate market information.

Econometric Forecasting
