About Us

Welcome to The Real Estate Capital Institute®, the Nation’s premier source for income-property debt and equity underwriting statistics.

The Institute is dedicated to independently monitoring realty capital markets using research based upon the analysis of current income-property debt/equity market data. Funding parameters — including yields and pricing — are posted for apartment, industrial, retail and office properties. Historical data spanning more than two decades is also available.  More specifically, the Institute measures and analyzes movements of various indices, benchmark rates and pricing premiums to better understand current realty capital rates, as well as helping to forecast future behavior.

Current rates and observations are found in the Scoreboard® section. Rates are updated daily along with market commentary.

Key Statistics

Historical rate information is identified in the Key Rates section. General financial indices such as Treasuries, Bank Prime and LIBOR are monitored dating back to 1990. Real estate debt and equity market data is referenced from 2000, including mortgage and capitalization rates. Earlier data is available by special request from the Institute’s Archives.

The Analytics section provides supplemental information such as mortgage constant tables, loan checklist, underwriting parameters table and other sources of realty capital data.
