Digital acquisition process: CapitalBAY uses 21st to analyse transactions worth over EUR 50 billion

Berlin, 30. January 2018

Berlin, 30 January 2018. Berlin-based Capital Bay GmbH (CapitalBAY) has been working with the valuation software 21st (formerly Uvaluate) in its acquisition activities since the start of last year. The investment company has analysed properties with a value of over EUR 50 billion this way – including for Deutsche Wohnen SE.

George Salden, CEO of CapitalBAY, has now sold the software solution he developed himself to 21st Real Estate GmbH. “At CapitalBAY, we were the first company to use the software in transaction management – with great success. Transferring the software to 21st will enable us to achieve better market penetration and allow us to quickly analyse up to 1,000 transactions a day,” commented Salden. “Following its sale to 21st Real Estate, the tool is now in the hands of renowned IT experts who will continue its development in future.”

Salden will remain a partner of 21st Real Estate and a member of the Advisory Board of the company alongside Joachim Schoss, founder of, and Thomas Falk, founder of eValue AG.

Salden created the software based on an approach he explains in his book The Dynamic Method: It assumes that a perfect valuation requires the study of the micro-cycle of the property as well as the macro-cycle of the market over the respective investment period. The system delivers market analyses and automatically generates standardised property and financial indicators, serving as an extension of transaction management.

21st Real Estate digitalises the acquisition process for property investments. The platform offered by the Berlin-based company includes a marketplace, a purchasing system with automated calculation, decision-making reports based on smart data and a Real Estate Online Trading Terminal. 21st Real Estate is valued in the tens of millions of euros. The company won the Real Estate Innovation Award 2017 and is nominated for the Immobilienmanager Award in the category “PropTech of the Year”.
