The development began in 2013 of the Real Estate and Financial Markets Lab (REFM), and the lab was launched in 2015 by the Fisher Center for Real Estate and Urban Economics to provide the analytic technology, data, hardware, software, and personnel needed to conduct cutting-edge economic analyses of real estate asset and capital markets. The REFM Lab will pursue scientific advances in valuation methods and systemic risk management practices needed for trading and monitoring activities in these markets.

A brief overview of the original mission and organization of the Lab can be seen here.
