Online real estate marketplace, Auction.com, is expanding its brand by launching Auction.com Research, a new division providing continuous data and analysis throughout various real estate sectors.

Auction.com Research will gather experienced economists and industry researchers, who have built solid track records of accurate research and forecasts, to create a broad range of information.

"We all benefit from a healthy real estate marketplace," said Monte Koch, Auction.com co-CEO. "Making Auction.com Research's findings publicly accessible will facilitate smart growth and sound business practices that support ongoing market recovery."

Led by Peter Muoio, founder of the research and consulting firm Maximus Advisors, the division will release regular reports and forecasts related to single- and multi-family housing, retail, office, hospitality and industrial real estate.

The first report released by Auction.com Research, a single-family market report, can be found here.
