The purpose of the Monthly CRE Monitor is to provide some fresh insight into how both debt and capital markets are valuing financial instruments with real estate backing. The key methodology is based on both prior academic literature and Bayes internal expert market experience for both leading indicators and signals as well as comparative valuations which are not available elsewhere.

The analysis is based on Bayes database of over 350 listed European real estate companies, and 180 bond European real estate bond issues. Pricing data has been sourced from Bloomberg and Reuters.

To accompany the first Monthly Monitor we have also published a Methodology Document which explains the rationale and calculations behind the metrics

Climate change in real estate

Real Estate Research Centre releases its first report into how climate risk is affecting residential property in England. A report from Bayes Business School (formerly Cass) shows how flood risk affects the English residential property values to raise awareness amongst policy makers and regulators. The report is based on data from Rightmove, the UK’s number one property website.

For all properties a property-level flood score was provided by Twinn by Royal HaskoningDHV that considers risk from fluvial, pluvial and tidal sources. The detailed findings can be found in our report: The impact of flood risk on England’s property market.
