Real Estate 2009 Poll: Methodology
Euromoney ’s fifth annual Real Estate Survey canvassed the opinions of real estate developers, advisors, financial institutions, investors and end-users worldwide.
We asked respondents which firms they thought were best at providing various real estate products and services in their market in the last 12 months. In the 2009 survey we received 950 valid responses, a 16% increase on the 817 responses received in 2008.
Respondents were asked this year to identify the country, the real estate sector and the type of market participants of which they had the most knowledge. They then nominated (in Part B of the survey) the companies which they thought were best, second and third in each category. Firms were also asked (in Part A of the survey) to provide some basic quantitative data about their real estate operations. The Overall category results are aggregates of the sector votes from Part B, the participation points awarded for nominating peers, and the points from Part A.
Worldwide and regional results are aggregates of country results. The survey was conducted from April 21 until end of day local time Friday June 5.
