Articles and Reports

These databases are ranked in rough order of preference (exluding Google Scholar which could be as high as number 1 depending on your search) 

Proquest - A great multidisciplinary database and the largest in this list. Contains some things the databases below don't contain, such as ebooks, reports and doctoral theses. There is a box on the left of the search screen that will let you refine your results to reports and/or scholarly articles should you want to do that. 








Reports include company profiles of real estate investment firms as well as country based real restate reports







Taylor and Francis Journals - Taylor and Francis is a major publisher of scholarly material in the social sciences and has some deep holdings of peer reviewed articles on real estate investment. All the citations found here should have a pdf attached.

Wiley Online Library - Wiley is a good database for articles about real estate investment, testing well across the topics covered in your subject outline. It's all peer reviewed articles with pdf's attached. 

The next best article databases for the subjects covered in your course are ScienceDirect and Emerald, in that order.

If you want a really powerful search, try Google Scholar as it sources materials found in the above databases as well as material published in house by universitites and organizational bodies. It counts citations too.

Real estate market and company information

In addition to the reports offered by Proquest there's these information sources (in no real order of preference)

Factiva - Factiva is a news and business information database. Using the subject refinement below the search area you can type in real estate to restrict your searches to a variety of real estate related topics.
