Real estate companies should be paying attention

"2017 saw the PropTech space come into its own as a space to be reckoned with and invested in. The space is suddenly overflowing with disruptive start-ups competing for attention."


This was one of the views that came out of the Q4 Global Real Estate Technology Confidence Index 2017.

Published by our partners, MetaProp NYC, the Index provides the only look at the current and future trends of the PropTech market, allowing us to gain further insight into the extent of the impact that technology is set to have on the built environment.

Findings from the Index include:

  • More competition will emerge due to the increased exposure PropTech has witnessed in the last 24 months.
  • There will be more focus on the user experience. How does technology make people inside buildings happier?
  • Startup CEO's and investors are getting more involved with the residential market.
  • And much more...
  • Our partnership with MetaProp means that our members will continue to gain insight into cutting-edge real estate technology trends.
