RealPage® to Acquire Axiometrics®

25 January 2017

RealPage, Inc. today announced it has agreed to acquire substantially all of the assets of Axiometrics, a leading provider of apartment market data. Axiometrics will be combined with MPF Research, a division of RealPage. In addition, RealPage has entered into a long-term relationship with Real Capital Analytics (RCA), a leading authority on multifamily sales transaction data. Combining data from Axiometrics, MPF Research and RCA with the data analytics power of RealPage, which is based on tens of millions of real time lease transactions, will create a unique market intelligence platform. The company expects this platform to be the most-referenced apartment data analytics solution in the U.S.
