We know the future value of your urban location
Cityfier a digital analysis service for visualising city development and forecasting the future value of urban districts and properties.
Location is the key in the real estate market. The value of the location is based on accessibility and distances between different urban components, such as homes, public & private services, workplaces and transport. These factors tell you where to invest.
The other important factor is timing. It is essential to know when to invest. However many of the tools used for analysing the property or district values are based on the present. The evaluation models do not take into account the future development of the area. In other words currently there are no forward-looking valuation models available.
Cityfier uses city master plans to simulate the future development of a certain area. Tool combines city master plans, property data and housing market data with urban research. It analyses relations between the different urban components and forecasts the future value of your location. The analysis results can be used by landowners, property investors and city developers.
