|New Article: What's the Trouble with the Bubble?
We have always focused on nuts and bolts in our articles for investors and developers on subjects
like project feasibility or understanding cap rates. If you’ve missed any of those articles, you can still read them at realdata.com, under the “Learn” section.
Investors, developers and homeowners operate in the world of real markets, of course, and for nearly a year there has been a great deal of prognosticating about where those markets are headed. This month we’re offering a different
kind of article, taking an op-ed look at this talk about the future of real estate. Are these forecasts based on hard data or are they mostly hype? And how have people operating in that real world responded? Go to realdata.com and click the “Learn” tab to view this article.
RealData Product News
In response to customer requests, we’ve released a new build

including General Partner’s IRR and NPV calculations. Make sure
to download and start using the new build today.
Meanwhile, we’re working on upgrades across our entire product
line. Keep an eye out for Commercial/Industrial Development Version

the release of Version 5 will receive the upgrade for free, so there’s
no need to wait.
Our year ended with a spike in sales of Real Estate Investment Analysis
International Edition. Spurred by the success of REIA International,
we’re working on adding currency and measurement settings to
our other products, starting with CID 5.
After the release of CID 5, we’re going to focus on the entire
REIA product line, looking to incorporate many user suggestions in
new updates or upgrades. Stay tuned for more news about RealData software,
and please don’t hesitate to give us your feedback on how we
can make our programs work better for you.
