The United States real estate market is one of the hottest economic topics today. Although it is a popular investment, it is one of the hardest investments to analyze since there has been no centralized real estate exchange from which you can obtain long-term data.
Until now, there have been no long-term indices, such as the S&P 500 Index, for real estate investments back into the early 1800s.
GFD has partnered with Winans International to offer the most accurate and comprehensive collection of historical real estate data available in the world. Winans International, a well- respected name in financial research, has developed the Winans International U.S. Real Estate Index™, which tracks the price of new homes back to 1830. In addition to the WIREI, Winans International has developed numerous other real estate statistics going back to the 1960s.
In addition to this, the database includes regional data on housing prices, inventories, house size and other important variables that are needed to understand changes in the housing market. Data on real estate can be compared with other asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, bills and commodities to see how each has performed relative to each other.
