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. 

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 property and 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 and property. All its content is peer reviewed with pdf's attached. 

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