Proprietary Research

Research is critical to every stage of Ytech’s investment and development process.

Our Business

Proprietary Research

Research is critical to every stage of the investment process. Ytech’s proprietary research team works closely with the most senior leaders of the firm, including the chief investment officer and chief risk officer.

Ytech’s informed investment strategies and decisions rely on hard data from our local offices, top-down macroeconomic trends, and Ytech’s proprietary pricing models – all analyzed by our dedicated team of research professionals.

 

Pricing generally drives future performance. Our proprietary pricing model analyzes historical data from a range of local and global data sources to track and anticipate capital markets cycles, estimate where we are in those cycles, and propose strategic investments in response.

Ytech analyzes historical data from leading research firms to provide regional teams with a comprehensive baseline for making informed and strategic decisions based on current and projected real estate supply and demand.

Ytech’s models delve into data on investment cycles unique to each submarket in relation to value and put it into context, allowing us to identify untapped markets and properties.

We seek out submarkets and micro-markets with the potential for high performance. Our local knowledge in tandem with proprietary models allows us to research demographic data, which we view as mismatched with economic and supply-and-demand fundamentals, that create market dislocations and, therefore, open opportunity for strategic investments.

We identify niche strategies during our routine research of market forces, including micro and macroeconomics, real estate fundamentals and capital markets, and how they influence investment and returns at various points in the real estate cycle.
