What is the OSCRE Standard?

The OSCRE (Open Standards Consortium for Real Estate) Standard refers to a set of international data standards developed for the real estate industry. The purpose of these standards is to facilitate the effective management of real estate assets, improve communication and interoperability between different systems, and enhance the efficiency of real estate transactions.

The OSCRE Standard encompasses guidelines and specifications for data exchange and data management across various aspects of real estate operations, including:

  1. Property Management: This includes data standards for managing leasing, maintenance, and operational details of properties.
  2. Investment and Finance: Standards cover the management of investment portfolios, financial reporting, and analysis related to real estate.
  3. Building Information Modelling (BIM): Integration with BIM systems allows for more sophisticated management of building data throughout its lifecycle.
  4. Sustainability and Compliance: Standards facilitate the tracking and reporting of sustainability measures and compliance with various regulations.

The aim is to enable a more seamless exchange of information between stakeholders such as investors, property managers, and service providers, thereby reducing costs, improving accuracy, and supporting strategic decision-making. OSCRE achieves this by providing a common language and framework that ensures consistency in how data is captured, shared, and analyzed across the real estate industry.
