What is Real Estate Alert's Deal Database?

Subscribers to Real Estate Alert get FREE online access to the Deal Database, a powerful research tool that contains the terms of all U.S. property sales of $25 million or greater completed since Jan. 1, 2001.

The interactive database allows subscribers to search and sort through thousands of completed transactions throughout the U.S. For instance, a user can quickly create a list of all Midtown Manhattan office buildings that sold for more than $25 million, where Eastdil Secured was the broker. It's an essential resource for professionals preparing property offerings or bids. Real Estate Alert relies on its database to produce its broker rankings, listings of each quarter's largest transactions and other regular features.
