About Us

Radar Logic is a technology-driven data and analytics business that produces a daily “spot” price for residential real estate in major U.S. metropolitan areas.

Data are captured from public sources and translated into the Radar Logic Daily™ Prices for 25 U.S. Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSAs), the Manhattan condo market, and a 25-MSA composite. The prices reflect the actual prices paid for residential real estate on any given day and are computed using proprietary and transparent algorithms. In the future, coverage will expand to capture additional real estate segments and other economic markets.

We’re Featured On…

Radar Logic provides the tools and support needed to power the Residential Property Index™ (RPX™)market.

Our prices advance the development and trading of financial derivative instruments based on residential real estate. A vibrant derivatives market permits both real estate industry participants and traditional investors to manage their businesses in sophisticated ways.

Our Mission

To help businesses and investors better understand and manage their opportunities and risks.

We believe that if order exists in what appears to be chaos, illuminating that order has value. Our products enhance the ability of professionals to use real estate derivative instruments in a manner similar to the futures and options contracts available in more traditional commodities. Investors can participate in real estate markets, managing both risk and opportunity, without owning physical properties. Real estate professionals can better understand the risks and rewards of a given market.

Radar Logic owns patent-pending technology for the creation of a daily cash price representative of real estate values for a local region and for the creation, execution and settlement of financial derivative products based on these prices. Radar Logic provides a synthesis of full market information, rather than interpreting selected elements of data.

We bring the power of research and analytics to the marketplace in ways never before available. By extracting knowledge from the vast amounts of available data, Radar Logic empowers professionals with new ways to manage market participation and opportunity.

Partners

Ventana Systems, Inc.

Ventana helps organizations in complex situations make better decisions through advanced technology. The technology generally focuses on a combination of good models and treatment of data. Ventana’s personnel have backgrounds in science, applied math, dynamic and robust modelling, statistics, computer simulation, optimal control, noisy data and indirect measurement. An appropriate analogy to Ventana technology is radar, because like businesses radar systems must make decisions based on contradictory and noisy evidence. Ventana uses some mathematical algorithms originally developed for advanced radar systems.
