For all property types--Office, Industrial, Retail, Multifamily, and Hotel--as well as capital markets fundamentals, we update our history and forecasts on a quarterly basis. For example, after the close of Q1 2023, we update our history for Q1 2023, and our forecasts commence from Q2 2023. Histories are typically published two to three weeks after the close of the quarter. Forecasts are typically published in the following three to four weeks.

For all property types, as well as capital markets fundamentals, our data is compiled from internal CBRE sources, including our local market researchers, as well as external sources.

As an organization, CBRE has vast internal data sources. At CBRE Econometric Advisors, one of our primary objectives is to standardize inputs from a variety of data sources, internal and external, resulting in data series that are appropriate for comparisons over time and among markets. CBRE's local research may utilize specific data-collection methodologies appropriate for their local market, and as a result, there may be differences. As an organization, we strive to identify differences and work toward consistent methodologies to resolve them when possible.
