About Us

India's only non-broking real estate research company

About Us

Liases Foras, founded in 1998, is the only non - broking real estate research company in India. Data and science form the core of our services, which range from providing market intelligence and risk advisory to lenders and mortgage companies, to providing development advice, best use, and valuations to developers, funds, banks and corporations.

We cater to a wide spectrum of clients including banks, HFCs, developers, funds, mortgage insurance companies, etc. and help them identify opportunities as well as associated risks in the market.

Our expertise lies in the area of real estate pricing with a strong focus on understanding the dynamics of price and analysing any underlying risks. We firmly believe that no matter how complex and ambiguous the real estate industry might seem, in reality, prices are governed by the laws of economic geography and urban economics.

Liases Foras is well acknowledged as a leading authority on real estate research and analysis, and many of our clients have benefited hugely from the robust database on real estate markets in India, that we provide. Our database is built using data collected since 2003 and as of today, covers 60 cities across India.

Our deep-dive and comprehensive approach covers various dimensions of real estate behaviour and since we are a non-brokerage company, our advice and analysis is completely unbiased. We can therefore boast of offering not only an exhaustive database of real estate performance, but also advisory services that are unparalleled in the industry.

We have pioneered the science of self-generated real estate research to look beyond ‘market sentiment’ and counter misconceptions by relying on robust data, scientific theories and rational thinking.

Our strength lies in real estate risk assessment, market research, due diligence and advisory services. We employ cutting edge analytics to deliver an array of data driven knowledge bytes and valuable, processed information that can be used to make key decisions.
