Back to basics: alt data for real estate investors
It is no secret that the current alternative data market heavily services public equity investors.

In this report we take a look at the alternative data options for real estate investors. Specifically, we address 1) issues with using traditional datasets and 2) which alternative datasets could help provide more accurate KPIs.
