BOSTON, April 18, 2017 – The Warren Group is excited to announce it has entered into a new data sponsorship agreement with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Real Estate (CRE) in Cambridge, joining a roster of over 20 other sponsoring organizations from every corner of the real estate industry.
Under this partnership, TWG’s vast pool of real estate and property records and statistics will be made available to the CRE’s academic staff and graduate students in order to enhance their research, and further the Center’s mission to “advance the art and science of global real estate, bridging the gap between theory and practice.” Specifically, members of the CRE community will have access to TWG’s deep data set of real estate transactions and property records as well as its recently revamped suite of products, including Mortgage MarketShare Module and Loan Originator Module.
“All of us at TWG are thrilled to engage in this powerful new partnership with MIT – one of the most revered technical institutions in the world,” said Tim Warren, CEO of The Warren Group. “As collectors of more than 3 million real estate and mortgage transactions a year, we have the infrastructure to pinpoint unique data segments and illuminate trends. The brilliant minds at the CRE will draw out new insights that can make an impact on the industry’s future.”
The union of Warren Group data with MIT’s analytics is a long time coming – both the CRE and TWG data collection services were launched in the 80s, and have watched the industry evolve through its highs and lows. Both have become trusted authorities in the diverse world of real estate.
“We are very much looking forward to partnering with the Warren Group and to exploring their datasets,” said Albert Saiz, Director of the MIT Center for Real Estate. “This is a very promising association that will certainly lead to new scientific insights into the dynamics of real estate markets. The Warren Group’s reputation and leadership in real estate data and analytics makes them an ideal partner to MIT CRE.”
